Topics I've Started

Vitamin B6 And Acne

08 May 2013 - 01:17 PM

So recently I haven't been sleeping very well, so I ordered some melatonin just to give it a try and see if it helps. However, when I looked at the bottle I noticed that each 2.5mg tablet of melatonin contains 335mcg of Vitamin B-6, which is apparently 18% of the recommended daily intake of Vitamin b-6. 

I've heard a lot about Vitamin B-6 breaking people out, but do I really have to worry about such a small amount? If I decide to take this, is there a chance i'll break out? 


Genuine Health- Perfect Skin Supplement

05 May 2013 - 01:29 PM

Has anyone else has tried Genuine Health's "Perfect Skin" supplement? Alan Logan, author of The Clear Skin Diet, recommended it in that book. Here's a link to the ingredients: http://shop.genuineh...rfect-skin.html

It seems pretty legit, albeit a little expensive, but I wanted to see what you guys thought of the ingredients. I'd really like to know what Dan thinks. 


Really Dry-Two Months Into The Regimen

05 May 2013 - 01:21 PM

So I've been on the Regimen since early March, and my skin is relatively clear these days so I'm pretty happy about that. However, I'm having some problems with dryness and flakiness. I've started using significantly less BP, but whenever I wash my face with Dan's cleanser my skin still gets super dry and flaky, so I've been using more and more of Dan's moisturizer and jojoba oil, which do a pretty good job of hiding the flakes once I put it on, but I'm beginning to think the flakes are more from the jojoba oil and moisturizer rather than the BP. Plus, the moisturizer makes my skin look yellowish. 

I'm wondering if I should maybe try a different moisturizer, but I'm a little hesitant to because, despite all the problems with flakiness, Dan's has managed to keep me clear and, according to Dan, there are comedogenic ingredients in most of the alternatives, like Cetaphil and CeraVe. What do you guys think? 


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

27 March 2013 - 10:14 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?
