Hi there.....when I first started the regimen, I read through countless success stories and they gave me lot of hope. I've been waiting until my skin is truly clear to share mine.
Before my first pregnancy, I used retin-a and antibiotics to keep my skin clear, but when I became pregnant, I had to stop using those things. I looked at friends' perfect, glowing skin and knew that my whole outlook on life would change if I were able to get clear again. I wasted so much money on different products and irritated my skin horribly using one thing after another. I felt completely frustrated and helpless -- nothing worked.
Last summer, I visited home (I live overseas) and my skin was so bad that I avoided seeing old friends I wouldn't be able to see again for years. I went to a bookstore and found a book co-written by Dan and decided to give the regimen a shot. I did it half-heartedly for a month or so before getting serious and ordering supplies from acne.org. I thought the products were great -- honestly the best I've ever used. I began in October, and my skin has cleared gradually -- certainly not as quickly as some people say theirs has. I kept retuning to the boards and was reassured that many people had taken months to get fully clear. It took me about 4 months to stop getting breakouts entirely, and five months to have my post-acne red marks lighten. I absolutely love not feeling as though I have to wear makeup and I never skip seeing friends now. It truly has changed my life and my overall mood. Having a breakout used to make me feel so anxious and stressed -- how awesome to be able to focus on other things now!
I just got married on the beach and felt totally confident wearing minimal makeup -- my photos turned out great. Now in my second pregnancy, I'm incredibly grateful to have the smooth glowing complexion that I admired on others before. Thank you so so much -- this is a life-changing program.
