Day 13 on Dan's regime



Okay, so after stumbling upon this website when I was googling an acne product review, I decided to give Dan's method a shot. Like the majority of people on this site, I have tried everything to make my skin better. My face has been breaking out since about the eighth grade, and I am currently 24. My acne had always been manageable, but then at the end of my junior year of college, it got pretty bad. I have been trying everything. I've spent hundreds of dollars over the past few years trying different regimens, trying to find a solution.

This is the morning of my 13th day Dan's regimen. I have been using:

*Cetaphil Antibacterial Gentle Cleansing Bar

*Dan's BP (I switched from Neutrogena on the spot acne treatment on the morning of day 10)

*Olay moisturizer for sensitive skin (I know it's not recommended, but I already had some!)

What I have noticed:

*The pores on my nose and chin seem smaller, less noticeable

*Texture of my skin feels smoother

*Some of the clogged pores on my forehead are beginning to go away

*My face is breaking out less (I only have 2 zits now, as opposed to the usual 5 or more)

*Red marks are more apparent

Also I'd like to note that I have not been wearing foundation or cover up since I started the regimen. This is a huge personal triumph for me. In the past I put on foundation almost any time I left the house. My boyfriend always told me not to wear it since it could be making my skin worse, but I have always been too insecure about my skin to go without it.

My advice to any ladies that are having the same problem I was having: Buy some really good mascara or eyeliner. I have been using an awesome Lancome mascara with my regular eyeliner. It really makes my eyes pop, and I feel like it draws the focus to my eyes instead of my acne/red marks. :|

I'm really liking Dan's regimen so far. I'll write another update in another 10 days or so, or if anything dramatic happens with my progress!

Good luck and congrats for being brave enough to not wear makeup...I usually don't when my skin is manageable, but I've been wearing makeup every day except weekends for the last 2 months since my latest breakout got completely out of control. I'm on day 17 of Dan's regimen, and doing remarkably better...I'm hoping for no makeup in 1 more month. Good luck again!
