In Topic: What Else Should I Use To Clear My Skin?

20 May 2013 - 10:55 PM

I'd really recommend starting the Regimen and using Dan's products. His cleanser is great, his 2.5% benzoyl peroxide is just right, and honestly I feel like his moisturizer actually fights acne rather than clogging pores! Check it out: http://www.danielkern.com/

You might also want to try taking a zinc supplement, because many studies have linked low levels of zinc with acne. Optizinc by Source Naturals is a good brand. Pretty cheap, too. 

 


In Topic: Really Dry-Two Months Into The Regimen

I might have to give that Cetaphil a shot then. I'm guessing the Cetaphil lotion you use is the "Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion?" Or is it one of their other moisturizers? 


In Topic: Spf Is Coming This Spring

We are now nearing May. Can anyone... Daniel?... give a better idea of when the SPF moisturizer will be available? I really need to place an order, but I've been waiting for the SPF availability. Not only am I excited to try it, but I'm nearly out of both my cleanser & moisturizer anyway. Should I order or is it worth waiting just a little longer?

I second that. Just give us a rough estimate of when we can place our orders. It's alright if it doesn't end up being correct. 


In Topic: Insecurity Attacks?

I wouldn't be so concerned about people "watching you". 

There was this great line from a movie that I heard the other day...went something like "If you worry what people think about you, just know that they probably don't think about you at all." 

Honestly you're probably really insignificant to most people that don't know you well. You're just part of their surroundings. Don't worry about it. 
 


In Topic: Dan's Moisturizer-Good At Hiding The Flakes But Not Moisturizing Enough?

28 March 2013 - 12:35 PM

I've been on Dan's Regimen for about 2 weeks now, but I've been using benzoyl peroxide for over a year already so I didn't notice a tremendous increase in dryness or redness like some people who start the regimen do. However, I am starting to notice some pretty deep wrinkles forming where my laugh lines are in between my mouth and my nose and they're really starting to worry me. Plus, I've been moisturizing like crazy with Dan's moisturizer, and while it does help a lot with hiding the flakiness, my skin still feels really taught and totally dehydrated. Also, his moisturizer tends to just sit on my face and sort of glob up sometimes. 

I'm starting to think Dan's moisturizer might not be moisturizing enough for me, if that makes any sense. Are there any recommended intensive moisturizers out there that anyone can vouch for? I've heard people say Cetaphil works really well, but which Cetaphil product specifically? Any other brands? 

 

I haven't used any of Dan's products while on the regimen but have you tried adding in jojoba oil to the moisturizer? I found that really helps.

 

I use the cetaphil lotion but only in the PM and it works really well for me, especially with jojoba oil. My face feels so soft in the morning.

Yes, I've been mixing extra jojoba oil into Dan's moisturizer, which already has jojoba oil. I'm not sure if the jojoba is helping me. I feel like it doesn't really moisturize, it just sits on top of my skin and forms some sort of weird, flaky layer. Does it do the same for you? 

Which kind of cetaphil lotion do you recommend?
