  1. Okay so I've been a long time user of Dan's regimen. I'd say since late 2010 so its been 5 years roughly that ive been using it. Sadly I'm still breaking out, seems to be hormonal acne involving dht and metabolic processes running wild according to my doctor. Since about 4 years ago I noticed that my skin is consistently dry to where it becomes oily and that the overall texture of the skin on my face has deteriorated noticeably the past few years. The texture is almost leathery and I have crows
  2. Good catch. On a similar note I also I found out after asking staff out of curiosity that dipping sauces at a vast majority of restaurants have whole milk added to them to make them taste richer and more creamy such as buffalo sauce or honey mustard and so on. It was enough to trigger a mild acne outbreak if I indulged with them so be wary of those too.
  3. I would take it easy with using too many products on the face as it can irritate the skin and make it worse. Judging from the photos it looks like hormonal acne which explains why the weightlifting and bulking diet possibly aggravated it. Are you taking any kind of protein powders or shakes? Those always wrecked my skin
  4. Light therapy treatments, lasers and the like are really only meant for when the breakouts have completely ceased which explains why it got even worse after all that, some d1ck head derm was just trying to cash out on you spending money for all that, its terrible how they take advantage of people like that. Anyways... the antibiotic bactrim and it generic form worked wonders for me before I eventually became allergic to it. Not trying to be mean but yes the laser thing was a bad idea. Has an all
  5. Yup you gotta give up the milk! at least for a month and see what happens. I know its hard, I was a cheese addict myself but now I dont even crave cheese or dairy foods anymore. Also the high calorie intake thing, what they mean is high calorie foods with a high glycemic index which means how quickly they absorb and throw your blood sugar levels off. High glycemic foods are basically anything with white flour, white breads etc. Also I'd avoid eating anything with high fructose corn syrup. Gettin
  6. Acne is one of those things that can have many many causes, hence why its a complex thing to treat. That being said, there are a number of things that will make it worse or cause it for the majority of people. Since your skin condition is bothering you (and I dont blame you) you will have to take what some might call drastic measures to counter it. I strongly suggest if you have not already that you COMPLETELY eliminate any sort of dairy or milk from your diet for a month at the minimum for star
  7. Mega doses of saw palmetto 1500+ mg a day did help noticeably but at that high of a dose the side effects became too much (cloudy head, spacing out, libido gone). Creatine in the form of kre-alkalyn has not bothered my skin a single bit but I've found that any type of protein powder does. It doesnt matter if the protein powder is made from 100% plant sources, meat sources (like the carnivore brand), or if its a whey isolate like Isopure, it all breaks me out the same. I think the spike in rapid
  8. Ive tried doing this before, most ive gone is 2 weeks. My skin had a nice "glow" to it, and i was pretty clear. But how long did it take you to be as you said completely clear? It depends on the severity of the breakout I'm experiencing but after a whole weeks has gone by I see an incredible improvement, after two weeks even more so, at the three week mark I was the most clear I have ever been in my life before acne even began, not even any light red spots from scars remained at that point.
  9. You should be fine OP. For some people such as myself, abstaining works wonders for clearing skin up completely, for others it doesn't.
  10. The benzoyl peroxide wash may be definitely overkill on your skin in the sense that it is stripping all of the skins natural oils and overly drying it out, especially since you are already using a topical benzoyl peroxide. I completely understand how its scary switching products not knowing what may happen but I would still suggest cleansing with the cetaphil cleanser but make sure its the gentle version! I found the regular version to be very drying and irritating to my skin, its the only clean

  12. I don't but it has definitely crossed my mind a few times when my scars were extremely bad. Youtube has a ton of info and how-to videos about using makeup to hide acne scars/marks so I'd go check that out. Seemed like too much trouble IMO.
  13. You've gotta keep in mind that the dry winter weather is making it much worse. Before you throw in the towel try a couple more things. Try using a little less of the product and after it drys completely apply a moisturizer specifically meant for the facial area. You've never used a facial moisturizer with it? I think that would help tremendously with the tight flaky dryness feeling. The moisturizer they sell on this website has been my favorite so far so I'd give that a shot if I were you. Also
  14. I'll try to make this as short as possible and yes I know the topic of masturbation and acne is a dead horse that has been beaten to death for a while now. Ever since I turned 19 I began dealing with aggressive acne on my face and shoulders. Trying tons of different antibiotics all of which I had allergic reactions to eventually. I went on dan's regimen which did help a good bit but only got me to be about 70-80% clear. I've come to realize that my acne is genetic (my father and his brother both
  15. How much of the epiduo are you using and how often?? Also were you using BP routinely in the past before starting the epiduo? The winter season with cold dry air outside and then hot dry air inside your home from heating will take a big toll on skin that is being treated from BP in my experience.
