In Topic: I Just Ordered The Kit!

It's been about 5 weeks since starting the regimen, maybe about 2 weeks since starting with Dan's products. My face isn't totally clear yet, and I'm still always having at least 1 active pimple, BUT THEY'RE NOT CYSTIC. I can cover them up with some concealer and run out the door! :-D Its going fairly well. I can deal with my face right now. (Though I am hoping I do clear up all the way.) Loving it so far. I've heard it may take about 12 weeks to really be seeing BP's effects, but I'm seeing it's working pretty darn well right now. Hoping to be REALLY clear sometime in the near future. I will continue updates :-) xx

I find that when I up my BP too fast and turn red-faced, then put my yellow moisturizer on, I literally do turn orange. Looks like I got a bad fake tan. Lol..

I know where you're at. I strongly trust my God and love Him to no end, but sometimes it hurts me so much that I get mad at Him and blame Him for this. I've said awful things about Him that I regret.
 
I believe part of the reason I have acne is for me to be taught to focus more on who I am as a person inside than my outer appearance.
I also believe that I have acne so I can help someone in the future who is going through the struggles I am.
After getting over the angry, bitter parts of it, I am starting to see the good sides to it as well (yes, there are good sides, I promise).
 
I have spent so much time obsessing over my acne that I have been wasting precious time of my life that I could be doing something amazing.
 
Acne sucks and it tears your self-esteem down, but even though it feels like it, it doesn't limit what you can do.
You learn to live with it and ignore the people around you who have nothing better to do with their lives than worry about your acne problems.

No, you have acne because of genetics and hormones - not because "God" is trying to teach you how to focus on inner beauty or how to become compassionate. Man oh man are you ever American.


Go ahead and think what you want and I'll do the same. I wasn't specifying this post towards you, I was specifying this post to the person who wrote this and others who are spiritual to possibly help them. If you expect this to offend me, I get this much and I am used to it. I don't judge you for your beliefs and I would appreciate it if you wouldn't judge me for mine. But I will say what I think if I believe it could help another person and someone who wants to try to get in the way of that won't stop me. Thank you.

I tried the OCM for a while.

My blackheads went away like magic!

But my whiteheads and inflamed acne went nowhere.

 

Most acne is related to horomones (I know mine certainly is). cry.gif

 

I'd say your best best would infact be the regimen.

For me, the only thing that'll clear me up is benzoyl peroxide.

If I were you, I'd give it a go! It's worth a try! smile.png
