  1. The BP is actually drying the shit out of your skin. It did this very thing to my skin and it has not recovered ever since--and I did it back in 2007 (check the archives if you want). If you have sensitive skin do not use the Dan regimen-- Before going forward, please, PLEASE make sure you're not allergic to BP. I did not know I was allergic to BP for years because no one ever told me it was even possible to be allergic to BP. If I did know I wouldn't even be in this disastrous place as it is--
  2. I have them right now, even though I've NEVER had them before. I know for a fact it's because of the topical steroid they were giving me. My have one by one all become inflamed and when they do the stuff that comes out of them are hard lil' nasty crusty things--like when I finally push one out I can rub them between my fingers and it doesn't even break apart. I'm sure your lil flesh bumps are the same but on a much smaller simpler level. Deep down in your pore you have something this small and
  3. I am a believer in the "simple" regimen, plus detox, plus exercise. It's been almost a year since I began my regimen and I am SOOOOooo close to being clear. It's been 10 years since I've been clear, so you can imagine how excited I am. But emotionally, I totally understand your situation. When I am totally cleared up, I will come back and write a huge post for everyone, and try to help as many people as possible. Until then...I am a believer because I am practicing it right now, and it is worki
  4. My forehead is the last remaining area that is still a disaster. My regime is really helping, and I'm trying to deal witht he permanent scarring that is the part of 10 years of destroying your skin with chemicals. Please listen to me when I say this, "Do not use any dandruff shampoo on your forhead or any other part of your facial skin." When I used it, it made it WORSE--because your facial skin is MORE sensitive than your scalp, and all those chemicals will make it over react and you will brea
  5. Laurel Olive Soap and Dermalogica: intensive moisture balance Don't use anything else. You will go through hell at first but after months of letting your skin heal itself, you will thank me. I'm hoping that at the end of the summer I will be totally clear and I can come back and post my success story. You can buy the soap on Ebay--really cheap. The lotion is expensive but it is the best face lotion, hands down. I have been on my regimen of soap and lotion only for almost a year and I am S
  6. This will work for people that haven't been destroying their skin for years and years. I have had acne and fighting it for 10 years. Anyone with permanent damaged skin from years of topical meds--THIS WILL NOT WORK. BUT those that are fortunate enough to understand that the skin will heal itself at an early stage--THIS WILL WORK. I have found something that is working for me, but I will come back and tell you the success story when it is actually a success story. Hopefully at the end of the su
  7. Actually, I love people who have FOUND something that worked for them to assume it might work for others. You know why? Because I have no FRIGGED CLUE how to fix my skin. So THANK YOU for posting this.... I am trying this starting tonight 11-15-2007 I will keep you updated every few days to let you know how its working for me--if at all. I have had adult acne for almost ten years now--sucks ass. My skin is dry sensitive and I have terrible acne on my forehead and t-zone--I'm talking about al
  8. 1) Yes. 2) I had terrible experience with this. 3) No. My skin is very dry and sensitive. As with all dry and sensitive skin-- exfoliation is a NO. I did not learn this til it was too late, and now I can't get it my skin back under control. I am so sad about it. If you have dry sensitive skin do not do this, it will irritate your skin to no end.
  9. Try taking all the washing and whatnot down until you're not using anything but light gel face wash and lotion and then slowly take yourself off that too. It's possible to get your skin back to where it doesn't flake and what not. My brother has done it, but I can't seem to get it right. (sigh). Good luck.
  10. you skin is oily because its so irritated--from my experience. My face is a lot less oily now that I don't put all that crap on it. We can't help you anymore than that until we know more about what you're doing to your skin.
  11. From my experience, skin irritation causes huge amounts of oil production. I used astringents for a bit and my skin got super oily. I have dry sensitive skin, so whenever the skin is irritated it gets super oily. Stripping your skin of all the oils makes your skin produce more, that's from my experience. Take out your astringent for a few weeks and see what happens. My brothers use lotion on their faces and it doesn't irritate their skin, I use it and my skin breaks out. If you have sensi
  12. dude... If you have acne only on your face, if you've been putting all types of crap on your skin to cure acne, if you have dry sensitive skin--but it seems to produce a lot of oil. Chances are you shouldn't have acne at all. You're just making everything worse by putting all that crap on your face. My brothers and I have suffered from "acne symptoms" my brothers was the worst and he now has scars, my other brother is less OCD so he's fine now. I have consistent acne still--- My brothers are A
  13. I just wanted to tell someone that acne is ruining my life. This post means nothing, but somehow letting some strangers know that it is ruining my life gives me a sense of ease for just a minute. I am so depressed. Thanks for reading. I know it's pathetic that I let acne dictate my life...but it does. Good luck to everyone. I'm still searching.
