I've been using this system for the last month and the changes in my skin are very substantial...better that with any other system or medication I've ever used.
I just use salicylic acid and Benzoyl Peroxide cleansers and creams that I'm sure anyone on this site would have in their bathroom cabinets. I have developed a scedule: Monday, Wednesday, and Friday I use Salicylic acid and the remaining days I use BP. I use a facecloth when washing with the cleansers and add about a teaspoon of sugar to the cloth. Gently wash the face (or any other area) with the cleanser and sugar. The sugar acts as a mild exfoliant so that the product can actually penetrate into the skin. Washing the skin when it is not exfoliated is a waste of time and product. When finished cleansing I use either a BP or SA treatment cream, depending on the day of the week. This schedule works so well because your skin will not get used to one product or medicine and will retain it's effectiveness. Because of the gentle daily exfoliating the skin does not look dry and flaky as it would otherwise (this dryness has caused me to give up on some cleansers and creams before). It is also important to moisturize the skin as well or the skin will compensate by making more sebum. I use an aloe vera moisturizer (from J.A.S.O.N) after my traetment cream has settled in. You WILL notice smoother skin after the first time and after just a week or two you will see the bumps disappearing. This is an inexpensive and very effective system and I'm delighted with my results. I'd be thrilled to hear from others who are giving this a try. All the best!!!
