The beginning..

Yo all,

Just signed up on acne.org today. Hope everyone's doin' well. I felt that this would be a good way to track my progress. So where to begin? I've been on Dan's regimen for about 2 weeks now. The products below are what I'm using morning and night:

Dan's cleanser

Dan's BP

Dan's moisturizer w/ jojoba oil (6 drops in morning, 12 at night)

AHA+ occasionally when I'm feeling bad about my red marks or need a spot treatment(maybe once or twice a week, only at night)

Also..

50 mg zinc/day

Fish oil

Multivitamin

I've been struggling with acne for the past year or so. I have been completely clear my entire life up until last year when I turned 17, and here I am at 18 today. I have been to two different dermatologists who have prescribed antibiotics, 10.5% benzoyl peroxide washes, and epiduo. Needless to say, nothing has worked. If anything, it has gotten worse. I would say my acne is between moderate and severe. I do not have many active pimples/zits at the moment, but the red marks are very obvious and they have killed my self confidence. I have also tried many home remedies and natural products, which have worked a little bit temporarily, but always come back to bite me with greater breakouts than before. So here's to my dream for clear skin again. I have seen a little bit of progress since starting the regimen, but nothing spectacular. The active zits have gone away for the most part, as I mentioned earlier, but my skin is very dry and irritated, though I guess it is getting better. Also, for the record, I don't get any acne on my forehead or chin. It is almost all located on my cheeks.

I will try to post pictures ASAP. Wish me luck.

I've just started to use 30mg of Zinc today, do you reckon it does make a difference? It's been 4 days into my routine and I think my skin is getting slightly less dry.Have you seen no improvement in the irritation at all?I really hope everything goes well for you :boohoo:.

I feel like my skin has felt a little less oily. I don't think it is contributing to the dryness of my face, though. I feel pretty confident in saying that it has kept my face under control. It is supposed to help with inflamed acne, rather than whiteheads and blackheads. Keep with it though, I feel like I'm finally starting to see results. Breakouts have decreased, although I'm sure that is due in part to Dan's regimen. The irritation is getting better as a whole, however, I am still a little red, itchy, and dry. I'll keep you updated on my progress. Good luck! Thanks for the post.
