Here's how I cleared my lifelong (40 yrs) SD. 99% clear. My GP recently said he could see no signs of it at all. 6 months clear now.

1: Ditch all products/shampoos with Sulfates. Sodium Laureth Sulfate and Sodium Lauryl Sulfate etc are known skin irritants and are used in labs as such. Real nasty ingredients which will do your skin no favours especially if you have SD.

2: Get chlorine filters fitted to your water supply and only wash with filtered water.

3 Wash scalp with baking soda (not baking powder). Must be pure bicarbonate of soda. A little will do, wet hair and apply baking soda, be careful not to leave on too long, find out the length of time suitable for you. I wet hair, then use 1/2- 3/4 of a teaspoon to wash my scalp, I leave it on for 2-5 mins before rinsing off. Clears dandruff like nothing I've ever used.

4 Wash face with only filtered water and weak baking soda solution. Baking soda kills yeasts. Tread carefully though, and don't burn your skin with it. Use it as a face wash. I use 1/2 teaspoon in about 3/4 pint of water. Gently rinse face with that solution and leave on for no longer than 1-2 minutes. It is important that you find the dosage that will suit your skin so be careful.

5 If you are male stay clean shaven as much as possible and use only the gentlest shaving products that you can find on your face.

6 Avoid all bread products, bread, cakes, biscuits etc. Also try to avoid grains and cereals as much as possible. Eat a low carb diet and low GCI foods.

7 Eat plenty or raw veg, the more the better, frozen will do as well but the more raw the better, broccoli, spinach, kale, carrots, leafy greens etc.

8 Avoid sugars and fatty processed foods.

9 Drink bottled or filtered water only. Fizzy drinks and caffeine flared my SD badly.

10 Change your bedclothes and pillowcases regularly.

11 If you must use cream on your face avoid steroids at all costs. I had best results with Zinc Oxide (Diaper rash) facemasks which can be kept on for as long as desired.

12 Supplements I take are; Flaxseed oil, Zinc,1 Antihistamine per day, B complex in the form of Brewers Yeast (but any B complex pills will do) Selenium tablet that contains vit A and E as well.

13 If you smoke quit.

14 And finally try to get some sun, exercise and stay positive.

This worked for me. My skin is almost crystal clear. I hope it is of some help to someone. Remember if you decide to follow the steps I've outlined here give it time. Yeasts are hard to kill but you can get there. I'll be happy to answer any questions. Good Luck!!!!

Thank you for this. I'm going to try this now and hopefully get results like you did. Do you think the baking soda played an important part in your seb derm clearing?

Hello,
I am 22 years old and I have acne for a long time, I can't remember when was the last
time my face was clear and I wouldn't worry about just putting my chin on my hands
to rest my head. I had ups and downs and  used different kinds of creams (Including benazac)
but never used something on my wide areas of my face just on the lesions.

I want to start Dan's regimen, so I ordered Dan's products and while it gets here I
started using this products and in the following order:
1) JA-DE Gel Nettoyant Douceur Foaming Cleansing Gel as cleanser
2) Benzac  AC 5% as treatment
3) JA-DE Hydra Sublime as moisturizer (without any SPF)
I started this routine this week at Sunday and I mostly used the Benzac cream at night,
meaning at noon I cleanse and moisturize, and before midnight I cleanse, threat, moisturize
and go to bed.

After the fifth day, people asked me why am I tanned and I noticed all my chicks
and chin are really reddish, mostly noticeable after I shower. Then I stopped using Benazc
and it hasn't gone away after two days (still using moisturizer and cleanser).

It looks like a reaction to Benzac as its red on the areas I used it. But I'm not sure if
it will go away as my skin gets used to it, so I don't know if I should continue using it.
I'm waiting on Dan's package to arrive to try a lower concentration (2.5%) and in
gel form which is said to lower the dryness afterward.

Do you think it could be a allergic reaction? or a normal side effect?
I attached some pictures of my face (In real , the contrast of my redness to the rest
of my face is bigger)

Thanks ahead.

Don't continue to use it, it's red because it's irritated. Just use the cleanser and moisturizer.

food does not effect acne. stop making yourselves more depressed by eating boring foods, indulge yourselves, your suffering mental pain the least you could do for yourselves is eat anything you want. acne is cause by 3 things only, dead skin cells, oil production, and bacteria, get rid of these and you're acne free.

In some cases it does.

Just go to the party and have a good time. Don't let some red marks keep you from enjoying yourself. If that girl changes her mind because of your skin, she wasn't even worth that hookup >.>

I have tried dozens of different treatments. The absolute best that I've used, which I've been using for like 10 years, is Eucerin Intensive Repair Lotion. It cured the cracks and patches, but I still have oily skin. I highly recommend it. You can pick it up in CVS. Let me know how it goes =) It has been a life saver 4 me.

Do you think this would help with the inflammation as well?
