I had near perfect skin up until this year as you can see. Unfortunately I was an idiot and started a new type of birth control that made my hormones freak out, which added to the breakouts I was already getting from mass amounts of stress. Thanks to a change in diet and sitting in the steam room after I work out, I really don't have that many zits anymore only a few really...but my skin is irritated and due to my asian skin my pigmentations are horribly dark. I just ordered the BP gel hoping Dan's regimen will work. If anyone else has these type of marks please let me know I'm not alone!!!!!!
