In Topic: Quitting The Regimen :(

23 June 2013 - 11:19 AM

Hi, I tried the the Regimen for about three years and had pretty good results; I was clear for the first time in my life. Sadly, my skin started to become very dull, irritated, and dry despite moisturizing. I also started to break again. When I quit the Regimen, I experienced the worst break out of my life; I had severe cystic acne all over my face, it was an absolute nightmare. I think that as I got older, my skin was less able to handle the BP and once I decided to quit it, my skin freaked out and went crazy.

 

This was about a year and a half ago and I've managed to clear most of my acne, Thank God. I cleared it naturally by changing my diet, exercising, finding the right combination of herbal supplemnts, ditching all my commercial products for natural ones (ex: aloe vera, oatmeal, green clay, jojoba oil, manuka honey), and destressing. The trick is finding and treating the root cause of your acne.

 

I used to think that products that weren't filled with chemicals couldn't possibly help clear my skin...I was wrong.  I hope you find something that helps you!


In Topic: Anyone Tried Dim Before?

Well I'm currently taking three pills a day which is the the same dosage that Tracy from love vitamin was taking; she mentions that it's fairly safe to take, I'm hoping that this is true. Like I said, I've not had any side effects so far, and I've noticed that my latest breakout is healing much more quickly.  The reason why I felt DIM might help me was because I my acne seemed to be very hormonal (I break out around the time of my period and the spots appear on my jaw area and around my mouth).  I also plan on taking it for about 2-3 months to see if it helps me. Lets hope for the best!   

 

Oh, I'm also taking the Green Pastures cod liver oil and am planning on taking milk thistle as well.  Hopefully that will be a winning combination!

Hi, I've been using Estroblock for about two weeks now and have had no side effects so far.  I first learned of this supplement from The Love Vitamin website; is this where you heard of it too?


In Topic: Quit Regimen. Skin Looks Worse Than Ever.

Hi!  I had a similar experience,  I was on the Regimen for close to three years, and it worked very well for me for most of that time. However, towards the end of the third year, I started breaking out a little here and there, and my skin became very sensitive, dry, discolored and dull.  So I quit cold turkey (I was 28 and I thought that surely by then I had outgrown it...HUGE mistake! I experienced the Worst break out of my life; The acne was very severe and covered my entire face, it was so awful. Eventually I decided to cure my acne naturally and have had good results so far.

I've been a regular visitor of this site for almost ten years now, and I have seen this same thing happen to lots and lots of other people too.  When they quit the Regimen, their acne comes back with a vengeance (oftentimes much worse than before).  I think that what happens is that your skin becomes dependent on the BP and when it suddenly stops getting it, it goes haywire (kind of like a drug addict going through withdrawals).  I'm so sorry you're going through this, and I hope you are able to find something that works for you. Stay strong!
