Poker's getting it down w/ Dan

Recommended Posts

Giannnina please don't try to commit suicide again. I know that probably sounds silly coming from a guy you never met before, but seriously its not worth it. I tell very few people this, but my mom once tried to commit suicide and it made be feel absolutely terrible. That was six years ago and I still cry to this day when I think about it (and I'm a guy who doesn't cry about anything).

We all feel terrible about our acne, but you just have to keep on keepin' on. You know?

I feel ugly sometimes too, but I always remember that my acne is not permanent. Another thing that keeps my hopes alive is looking at pictures from the Swan tv show website. You get to see the before and after pictures. You wouldn't believe what your able to do to help your appearance. If acne is the only thing making you feel bad then you should really feel fortunate.

If people make fun of you, because of your acne (some people in my school would make comments, but they were more of little jokes which were actually quite funny) just remember that someday you won't have acne, but they will be ugly forever. :D

Anyway, I really do feel for ya. I hope you realize this. And please, do not try to end your life again.

Good luck sweetheart.

You are totally right, I don't know what was I thinking.......

I've been thinking A LOT and won't try to do it again (EVER)

thanks for your words, I appreciate it.

anyway, theres not much one can do but ride it out ... like 14 of them have heads but theyre so tiny u can't even see em all that much so im just gonna leave it alone... fuck that i dont wanna scar..i think i already am from fucking w/ em...especially the lil ones ... fuck acne! :razz:

DAY 18 IPB Image

Ok, so all pimples from yesterday are about healed...they ALL came to a head by the end of the day :clap: ...i just have one stubburn one that wants to persist but thats ok...he's all alone so it's not that bad :doubt: .

Overall ....i'll repeat...im loving this regimen ...my skin is already used to the benzoyl peroxide :) ...i no longer get that slight redness to my face :) ...loving the eucerin :) ....keeps my skin so hydrated :) ....im no longer all flakey :) ...except where ive broken out of course :doubt: .... *sigh* ...i can't wait to see my face a month from now :pray:

i'll leave u w/ a pic of me back in early 05' ...oh where did it go wrong?

:lol2:

meanie! :evil:

I do have to say that I am quite enjoying this log..i mean we get daily pics and everything :D

Just to let you know, I tried Dan's regimen for about 3 weeks. My face had never looked that bad in a long time. I stopped using tazorac gel b/c I didn't feel it was working good enough. After being on the regimen for 3 weeks though, I went back to using Tazorac and my face is looking tons better. On a brighter note, you have mild acne so I think the regimen will work for you. I have had mild-moderate acne for about 13 years so I think my skin needed something a little more intense like Accutane lol. Good Luck!

tazorac? what is that? :think: anywho, im glad my pain entertains u ...j/k...but im glad u enjoy my log... the way i type is the way i speak , so go figure lol

but yea the regimen is going ok so far..not really hating that much for the moment ... hopefully it works out for me ...anyway, i appreciate ur response ...and kudos to u for finally being clear :clap: :clap: :clap:

Tazorac is a topical retinoid..like retin a...that helps to unclog your pores and helps the exfoliation process of the skin. It's the strongest of the retinoids(differin, retin a, tazorac). If the clear skin regimen doesn't help enough, see a derm. This shit is expensive but if you find a derm who has a supply of samples, you don't have to worry about it for awhile :dance: I still have differin, retin a, and tazorac samples left over. I don't think I actually had to shell out money for at least 3-4 months(and it was for the antibiotics I was taking and they were only 10 bucks) I don't have insurance either so I know how it is! Good Luck!

yea...the regimen is seriously my last resort if this doesnt work out ...i definitely would have to go see a derm , whether it costs me an arm and a leg , cuz my face is just ridiculous right now :doubt:

my blemishes from yesterday are just about healed....practically healed :) ...oh i can't wait till i stop this breakout cycle ... :| when will this just end :wall: ...anyway, it WILL damnit! ...think positive things, Karen ....positive things!

Hey Poker.....

You remind me of one of my really good friends.... you two type the same.... haha.....

We seem to have some of the same taste in music.... I too love Aaron Lewis... mmmm... I like guys that have meat on them....

Have you seem the 'Forget to Remember" MudVayne video??? freakin' sweet.... he looks yummy........

I wish you luck with the regimen....

You put on makeup very well by the way.... wish I could do that.... don't wear any now... just mascara... my hair covers it all up.... it's all on my cheeks also.....

I have stopped using all meds.... I got really frustrated cause RAM wasn't working for me anymore.... so I don't even have a regimen that I use.... just wash my face with Dove.... that's it..... I still get some pimples... but not as bad as when I was on meds.... screw that....

Well, peace out Poker..... and I hope you see results soon.....

DAY 22 IPB Image

so today i wake up with no new blemishes *knock on wood* :)

my face feels a hell lot smoother then when i started doing Dan ...i mean, the regimen ;) hehe

i do have some blemishes from yesterday that are healing but like i said, no new ones for today :D ...oh i sure hope things stay this way

i must confess though ...i steamed my face yesterday :shifty: ...oh and it felt SO GOOD! :) ...i didnt steam for long...the whole process was very gentle and my skin wasnt irritated at all ... it was nice and smooth afterwards :) ... and after steaming i let my skin chill out for an hour before doing the regimen for the daytime ...and it felt just fine ... but dont worry i will not be making a habit of this ....maybe once a week at most...if that ...just depends if my skin will need it for the week. we'll see (just im trying to follow the regimen to the "T" :D
