  1. OMG i am going through the same thing, although i did not do OCM, i did topical oil (blend from this herbalist who i used to think was amzing..) after washing.. the first red flag was that she recommended using paul mitchell shampoo for cleanser... UM what ? woman, are you and herbalist or aren't you ? up until 2.5 months ago i had been clear for 5 years using DKR. i have gotten cystic zits in the past, but NOTHING LIKE THIS. i went to my derm and she said i had 40 zits. FORTY. i believed
  2. I am wondering if anyone has tried using the N.V. Perricone products that are NOT intended for acne. I am on DKR, but i need a better cleanser and moisturizer because i just found out that cetaphil has sulphates in it and my moisturizer (Neutrogena Healthy Skin SPF 15) makes my skin too greasy. has anyone used the gentle cleanser with olive oil from Perricone or any of their moisturizers? Let me know!!!! Thanks Lulu

  5. yeah...i haven't changed anything about the way i do the regimen and went back to all my normal products 3 months ago...i wash my hands like a freak etc. etc. i will just cross my fingers i guess. and bank on it being the fault of the prednisone and briefly changing my moisturizer. yesterday i started taking more vitamin a, something called "zyflamend" by new chapter, and no-flush niacin and probiotics. hopefully this combination of stuff will scare it off.
  6. Just wondering--- Has anyone else had the regimen work like a charm for over a year (like almost completely clear for looooonnnng stretches of time) and then suddenly started breaking out again? starting in july i switched from Neutrogena Healthy Skin SPF 15 moisturizer to Caudalie Vinpoperfect Day Cream SPF 15 and it made my skin great for a few weeks and then I got a big zit (first one in a long time) so I switched back, but since then (it's now been 4 months) I have continued to get and inc
