Spinach, kale, cucumber, banana, some rasberries, and just a little bit of oats for texture, and water obviously. As the weeks go by, I'm removing more fruit, and adding more greens as I get used to the taste.

I've been drinking a green smoothie a day for the last two weeks, I've also started antibiotics and a new topical. I'm seeing results, but, not sure from what!! Either way, I have way more energy, and overall feel a lot better.

I've been battling my moderate acne for over a year now. Dan's regimen definitely helped prevent breakouts, but left my face feeling dehydrated, and very red. I'd almost rather have a few breakouts and normal toned skin, then what I had. So, I decided to change it up a bit and go natural.

I've been off BP for a week, and I'm breaking out slightly, but not red anymore.

I made my first green smoothie this morning. One word. Delicious, and it was completely unexpected. I went with a very simple one to start with, baby spinach and banana. It looked like the most disgusting thing I've ever seen, but decided to try it anyways. Delicious. I cannot wait to make another one later today, and tomorrow morning.

Thanks for the tips everyone! I'm hoping this is the key to my clear skin.


#3168569 Moisturizer Causing Breakouts?

Posted by dmb41 on 14 October 2011 - 08:28 AM

For the first couple days on the regimen my skin looked awesome. Now, on my 4th day I'm starting to break out.

It has happened to a lot of people from what I'm reading on the forums. All we can do is stick it out and stay with it.

Perhaps trying to use more moisturizer. When I started using the regimen I used the full 2 pumps and my skin thanks me now. It seems like a lot but its necessary to help combat the effects from bp.

Hello everybody!

Well a little background first may help.

I started getting acne at about 15 or 16 years old, figuring it was just the phase everybody goes through. I began working at McDonald's for a part time job to start saving up for a car. I worked there for almost 3 years. I believe my time their contributed to the acne problem I have know. I believe being in that environment, of grease and oil everywhere, with the combination of me eating it led to my acne problem. At age 17, I began smoking which also probably led to my acne problems.

Long story short, I moved on from that job and are suffering the consequences today. I also quit smoking, it will be 3 months at the end of October. I'm 20 now, almost 21 and will be going to a part time police academy starting in January/February and will be graduating towards the end of next year. My goal is to be 100% clear by graduation.

I have tried everything in the book, ProActive, AcneFree, etc. Like I said before, I quit smoking, had made extreme diet changes, and began to workout and run as much as I can. I began taking Zinc, as well as fish oil supplements to combat my acne. I have been using a mild SA cleanser with CeraVe moisturizer the 3 or 4 months and have seen changes, but nothing to brag about.

I gave in and ordered the start kit from the website, and tonight will be my first night using it. This is a journey I could not wait to get started, and hopefully it show me some results in the future. I will be collecting pictures along the way.

I'm glad to be a part of this community!
