  1. I have had mild acne probably since 9th grade and I am now a college junior. I have tried every different type of face wash, spot treatment, and moisturizer including several different regimens and nothing has consistently worked for me. I even changed my diet to all natural and that did nothing either. By no means do I have bad acne, but every morning I wake up and see pimples on my face, and when the ones that are there do go away, by the next morning there are new ones. I'm just so sick
  2. I use the Grandpa's Brand Baking Soda Soap and it works quite well for me.
  3. I have lots of non-inflamed acne on my forehead, the type you can't even see unless I look at my forehead up close in a mirror, underneath the skin. Can anyone recommend a good natural soap or treatment for this type of acne?
  4. I have been using it for a month and it is not clogging any pores for me, just makes my skin feel nice and smooth.
  5. Coconut oil can tend to have that "greasy" feel to it but if you don't overuse it and let it absorb into your skin well it shouldn't be a problem. I have never noticed it running when I've sweat or anything like that. I got mine at a local organic store, but I'm sure they will carry it at a Trader Joe's, they have them by me as well. Just make sure it's the best quality possible--mine is extra virgin and unrefined. I am fairly light skinned and I like to put it on my face if I'm going to be
  6. I'm kind of in the same boat as you as far as keeping it simple. I've traded in my old junk food diet and have finally started eating healthy and my skin has definitely reaped the benefits of it. Good idea to drink lots of water and keep sugar and processed foods to a minimum. I would also try to get your hands on some tasty vegetables as they are huge staple in any healthy diet -- ever since I started juicing I've noticed a huge difference in my complexion. For face cleansers, stick to anyt
  7. Alrighty. Thanks a lot, I'm going to sit down and take the test later today when I have time.
  8. Oh okay. The test at http://www.metabolictyping.com/ is supposedly the "original" metabolic typing test. Why do you recommend the Mercola one?
  9. What would be the most cost-effective way to go about doing this? I am a college student with a mediocre blender.
  10. http://www.metabolictyping.com/ Are the questions asked on the test, to figure out the specific foods I should be eating for my metabolic type, simple enough for me to answer correctly? I am looking to eat healthy from now on, but I have never done so too much in the past, and I don't want to waste the $40 it costs to take the test if it asks questions that I can't answer on my own. I have had light to moderate acne for about 5-6 years now and I've been on the DKR, and while it has helped, it
  11. Is this smoothie approach recommended specifically for acne by this doctor?
  12. Can anyone recommend a good apple cider vinegar brand that you can buy at the store?
  13. You can never be a dork when it comes to clear skin! Keep all the new stuff coming, Dan.
  14. Can anyone recommend a good non-comedogenic sunblock to go on over Dan's moisturizer? One that is preferably light and not too thick and won't leave a shine or greasy residue?
  15. Is Dan still going to chiefly recommend his original moisturizer as the standard use in the regimen? Or is the AHA moisturizer going to entirely replace it?
