Skin Progression



These are images of my battle with Acne since this past May (2011). This was at the worst point, I had never had acne this bad before. I used Dan's products all through high school and college and then in September of 2010 I decided I did not think I needed to use them anymore. My skin did fine for several months. By the time January 2011 rolled around I started experiencing some small break outs.

I freaked out and started trying all of these different skin treatments which just made it worse. That spring, I started going to a new doctor. I learned I had two hormone deficiencies and was prescribed Bio Identical hormones and I am continuing to take them today. Through food allergy testing, I found out I had sensitivities to MANY different foods. I went on a very strict diet for 5 months. Now I just do not eat Dairy, Wheat and Gluten. I also limit my corn, sugar and yeast intake. I take daily supplements as well, zinc, flax seed oil, vitamin e and evening primrose oil, I drink ginger tea (for digestion) and dilute Bragg's apple cider vinegar with water and drink to cleanse.

I started back on Dan's regime and products in May of 2011. I use Dove sensitive bar soap, Dan's BP and cetaphil lotion morning and night. I also use Dan's jojoba oil as an exfoliate and mix it with lotion at night for an extra moisturizing boost. As you can see in the photos, that combined with the hormone medication and the special diet cleared my skin dramatically! I have never been so happy in my life. Many thanks Dan, I will use your products from now on smile.png
