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!
