  1. From the album: Celebration's Progress on Dan's Clear Skin Regimen

    Hey Everyone! I am like a totally different person now. I year older and wiser, of course. Much clearer skin and tons more confidence. I love my life Hope all you .orgers out there are keeping to your regimen. Keep it simple and do the same thing every day. Be gentle to your skin. Most of all, try to keep your mind off it as much as possible. Life is short. PEACE & LOVE. ~Celebration
  2. Hi, Everyone, Just wanted to let you know that I came back to look at my comments. Good to know that people are stilling looking at my photos for inspiration. You can still PM me if you have questions
  3. Hey, Girl,

    My skin is doing so-so. You know, I gave up the regimen a long time ago because the redness of my skin was out of control. A few months ago, I went to a dermatologist and she told me I have rosacea! So I totally changed my medications to rosacea stuff (mostly sulphur based) and my skin is doing okay. I'm still getting some cysts, and am thinking seriously about going back o

  4. Hey, there, cutie pa-tootie! How was Michigan? No accidents this year, I hope! YOu are looking fabulous. It might be a good idea to get some alpha hydroxy products in your regimen to get rid of the skin colored bumps. I had the same problem when I finally got clear of the active stuff. Suddenly, my face was covered with the white bumps. I actually used Retin A to get rid of mine, but I know your insurance doesn't cover that... Anywho. Good to see ya! I came on here to get some inspiration and yo
  5. I've been doing well with taking my supplements. I am taking Centrum multivitamin, also Evening Primrose OIl capsules (1000 mg). I plan to go up to 2000 mg of EPO. I'm also taking 1 Fish Oil Capsule Daily. Started drinking a glass of V8 juice with a scoopful of powered greens yesterday. My Skin Medica toner is gone. So now my daily regimen is: AM: Cetaphil bar wash, 15% AHA/BHA cream Makeup: Bare Escentuals PM: Skin Medica face wash gel, Retin-A micro I only have one tiny tube of Retin-A micro
  6. I am posting pictures mainly for my own record. But feel free to comment if you have any suggestions. Notice all the red spots on the right side of my face? Those are not pimples, or at least not like any pimple I've had before. They are just red spots, without being raised or filled with any pus. Sometimes a few of them to fill up, but not often. I'm perplexed. The worst part is all the closed comedones near my temples and on my chin. It looks like a plucked chicken!!! Also, I'm a little flushe
  7. Arrrrrgh... Okay, so, I'm disappointed in this regimen. I've given it several months now and it's not working. This is what I've been doing for the past few months. It's not exactly what the esthetician ordered, but close. AM In shower, wash gently with Cetaphil bar. Pat dry and cleanse with Skin Medica Toner (with tea tree oil) Apply 15% AHA/BHA cream (occasionally, I'll have a breakout and I'll switch to BP for a few days. Not often.) Sometimes if my skin seems dry I'll apply the Skin Medica
  8. Arrgh. My skin is doing so crappy right now. I have fallen back into the trap of switching around products, trying to figure out what is wrong. Right now, I have 2 cysts on my left cheek. I have several comedones around my jaw. I'm thinking about stopping the retin-a and going back on the strict Dan Kern regimen. But I'm not sure. I don't want to end up with rosacea and a slew of closed comedones again. At the same time, I don't want to have cysts plus red pimples on my face. Why, oh why,
  9. Hey there! Thanks for the reply about body wash. I passed on the info. In return, may I make a suggestion about your workout? For the past few weeks, I've been alternating between cardio and pilates. I have been doing Jazzercise 3 times a week forever, which has kept me in decent shape. But since I've been working out with my Winsor Pilates DVD (which you can get pretty much anywhere) I've REALLY noticed a difference. I mean, my arms look more defined. My stomach is definitely flatter in that
  10. Last night, I put on retin-a micro before bed. After my shower today, I applied BP and then Cetaphil moisturizer. My skin looks especially bumpy right now
  11. Hi Lion Queen, I looked up AmLactin, hoping there would be a related product in shower gel form. Do you know of any shower gels or body scrubs that help with dry, flaky skin? This is actually for my mother. She just got out of the hospital and her whole body is very dry and itchy. The flakes fall off onto her clothes. (ick) She says she has millions of lotions, but wants something that she can use in the shower. Any ideas? Thanks in advance. Tina
  12. Starlogic~You look great, but I know how you feel. You just want it all to be gone, gone, GONE!!! Yes, it's nice that the breakouts are over. But now there are the scars and the red marks and the little bumps. It's not the same as being clear. I hope you get there one day p.s. It's awesome that you keep posting pics and inspiring people to try the regimen.
  13. Hi All, Sorry I haven't been updating much. I never went back to the aesthetician who started me on my retinoid regimen. I moved around a lot this summer and now I just don't have the money to keep going back to someone every month. Hopefully one day I will be able to do that because I do believe that the Jessner peel did wonders for my skin. The AHA/BHA plus retin-a is working out well for my clogged pores. Albeit at a snail's pace. My skin is smoother, but not smooth. Unfortunately, I have be
  14. Hey Lexy~Thanks for posting. Yep, I've been away from the computer a lot lately due to an illness in my family. Also, my skin is doing very well. I do get some tiny pimples around my jaw line now. But then I just drop the tea tree toner and AHA/BHA cream from my morning routine, and apply Benzoyl Peroxide to the jaw line only. Honestly, though, I think the minor breakouts that I've been having lately are due to my laziness with my new regimen. I'm telling ya, once your skin gets clear, it's easy
  15. Merry Christmas, Treasure!!!

  16. Hi Brandy! I hope you are having a merry christmas and the New Year will be the best :) Thanks for all your support. :X

  17. Merry Christmas, Mandy! Enjoy :)

  18. Amber~Thank you so much for being a sweet and supportive friend. I take your word to heart. Thank you Merry Christmas everyone! It's a lovely, green and sunny Christmas Eve day in Florida. I love the weather but miss my family back in Michigan. Thank goodness for having great friends who treat me like part of the family. My skin is doing better every day. I am not very regular about applying the retin-a micro, though. Funny how, once your skin gets clearer, it's so easy to become lazy...I wil
  19. Well, hey Dan! You're pretty hot, yourself Thanks for your comments. I read the link about Pyoderma Faciale. I s'pose it could have been that, but who knows? Remember, I took Accutane twice. My acne first came on in my mid-20s. The breakout last year was a resurfacing of the evil acne monster. Whatever you want to call it, it was devastating and I could NOT have lived through it without (a) your regimen, (b) the information and support on this board, and © the simply amazing .Org-ers who cheere
  20. Hey Amber-Nice pictures! Thanks for your comment on my log. I answered the question about my bf in my log.... That's so awesome that you are going on a cruise. Wish I was doing something exciting for the holidays Have a great time! T.
  21. HI Amber!!! Thanks for checking on me and for your sweet comments. Well...hmmm. A lot has happened, and yet nothing! I was out of town/state, for several months. We still saw eachother and talked, but I knew that things needed to change when I got back. With my mom being so sick, I have really changed my attitude a lot about life and relationships. So, just last week I moved back to the same town where my guy lives. (He is not here full-time cause he travels a LOT.) So I sat him down and told hi
  22. From the album: Celebration's Progress on Dan's Clear Skin Regimen

    I haven't updated my album in quite a while. That's mostly because I'm not on the regimen anymore. I stopped about 2 months ago, and started up on retinoids. My skin still is not perfect, but the Bare Minerals makeup sure does help a lot. This is a makeup picture, because I basically don't have active acne anymore! I'm still dealing with a lot of scars. Plus, I have closed comedones, but the retin-a is taking care of those (slowly but surely). Anyway, just wanted to say hi and give ya'll an upda
