I'm finished with acne...finally!!!

Recommended Posts

I stopped posting on my log some time ago because I don't have internet access were I currently live and because I just haven't been bothered since I am now acne free.

I just thought I would make a post about it the amazing success I have had with Dan's regimen, I can't believe I was so scared to try it before. I have been on the regimen about 3-4 months now and I'm done with acne, except the odd zit every month or so. Seven years of this crap and I'm finally got rid of it for good and without the help of nasty tablets (B5 did work for me but was too exspensive and I wasn't fond of popping that amount of pills). Slowly my hyperpigmentation has been going away and so has my scarring, all thanks to Dan and this forum!!!!!!

This summer I was feeling really really bad because I had run out of B5 and couldn't afford it any more as a poor student, and I broke out like crazy, I was back at square one after being acne free for some months. More hyperpigmentation, more scars and much much more acne. Years of acne also battered alot of my self confidence, I used to use concealer to hide my acne, which made me feel horrible and even more self consciess as I am a guy and as we all know it is not normal practice for a guy to use make up. Every time I met a girl when going out I would avoid meeting her outside the comforts of the dimmed lights of the pub or club I had met her. At one point I started not showing up at school and avoiding people's company because I felt so bad about myself.

Oh, the amount of times I asked what I had done to deserve such misfortune.

All that stuff is behind me now though thanks to the regimen. I do whatever I want now without having to think about how my face looks, I can talk to people properly without having to worry about them studying my face and I have a beatiful girlfriend which any guy would die for. Now I'm just trying to look at what's ahead and not linger on all the years I lost as a teenager due to my problem with acne.

Thanks Dan (you are a living saint) and thanks to the people on the forum of whom I've converced with (especially those who put me on to Alpha hydroxy's enhanced lotion)

It's glycolic acid. I use it before applying the BP gel. Great for speeding up the healing of red marks and shallow scars.

I would've posted before and after pics, but I don't have any.
