  1. I believe I got introduced to Everday minerals on this forum. I tried a few of their products, but their finishing dust was what really stuck. But being a medium complexion Black woman, when they released their tinted series was what took my make up routine to a whole different level. Such a natural and flawless look! But alas, they no longer make the tinted version of their finishing dust. I have the untinted one as well but you can really see the difference where it tries to sit too white on
  2. I don't think it matters, but Dan's been burned at least once that I know of. Eucerin Skin renewal plus SPF 15 was the hot item on this forum for a while there but they discontinued it. Also manufacturers have the perogative to change their ingredients at any time, so I could see why Dan could get sick of chasing them around and elect to make his own product. Just for cost, though, non-acne.org may be more affordable, so I'd generally lean towards that for the cleanser and moisturizer. Also ju
  3. Try lining your jacket or sweater with an easy to wash scarf. If you're a dude, I'm sure there are nice masculine versions of this. AHA broke me out, too, but this was the Walgreens version, not Dan's. I suspect Dan's is a lot more gentle.
  4. Just to make sure you're not doing this... I gave a friend regimen products and since technique is just as important on the regimen, I wanted to monitor how she was using it. RIGHT after patting skin dry after washing, she went to grab the BP. NO! You must give five to ten minutes so your skin is bone dry. If not, it's not only absorbing the BP but the water that was still on there to begin with as well. If this is not the issue, well, sorry, and good luck in finding out what it is PS: Allowi
  5. Dan mentioned in his jojoba oil video on utube that he uses 6 drops of jojoba oil with his moisturizer in the morning, but 12 drops at night. If you're still experiencing the dryness and flakiness, why not increase jojoba oil drops if you're already usin it and see if that helps?
  6. This is tricky for me since you do not live in the US, but I know they recommend Basis soap on the regimen. This is a large bar of soap that I just got for $2 in Walmart yesterday and each bar lasts for months and months. I also just bought jojoba oil because I was near a health food store on Friday, and I believe this will improve the moisturizing ability of any moisturizer you select, so long as it goes on the skin smoothly and doesn't clog pores. Basically what I'm getting at is you should
  7. No BCP here. They slowed down while on Accutane, stopped altogether for the last couple months and did not return until four months after I stopped taking 'em. Pretty awesome, if you ask me Went to a couple male docs after for something else and the jerks did not understand why I wasn't getting 'em if I wasn't knocked up. First female Doc I went to was like, yeah, of course! Thank God for women
  8. I don't regret accutane, but I did feel a little more down than usual while on the drug. Didn't want to hang out or see friends, etc. Some relationships have been permanently hurt by that. Acne by itself never really reduced my self esteem. A lot of the other treaetments like Dan's regimen worked, but they were a lot of *work*, everyday! I just wanted something that was a permanent fix, and Accutane was it. However, the joint and muscle aches and pains did make me feel like going out and d
  9. I took four 1g pills of fish oil per day, 2 per 'tane dose (the pills only contain a percentage of fish oil, so I took enough to be >1g per day). And 400 IU of Vit E at night only.
  10. So don't take accutane? Vit A won't dissolve in water! Some fats are also good and necessary for good health... olive oil, nuts, etc. Also, a lot of food contains some fat, whereas some food contains none. ie, taking accutane with toast, you might as well not take it at all. Or you can do like I did and take it with fish oil tablets, I think it helped.
  11. Meat would probably contain some kind of fat (not if it's very lean, though). Potatoes or veggies, not so much. I started taking fish oil with my tablets because I was concerned about absorption. I personally think it worked. If you read one of the stickies about starting Accutane, they recommend fatty foods: peanut butter, olive oil, handful of nuts, etc. Either way, take it with a meal and for me, in addition I took two 1g fish oil pills with each dose of 'tane. For me, I really only st
  12. My IB continued for two months with no end in sight (yuck!) Only improved when I started taking each dose with two 1g pills each of fish oil. I think I may not have been absorbing enough 'tane at first. A lot of people also experience IB and quit breaking out after about two months with no added products. Some break out all the way to the end, but what's important is your cummulative dose, with the amount stored in your body, it should continue to work even after the course ends, so don't
  13. You may not be absorbing enough of it without a fatty meal. Why no moisturizer? How about sunscreen?! Very odd! Did they mean no moisturizer containing oil? Because you generally should not put those on your face, even though some people have good results using Emu oil, olive oil, etc.
  14. I don't know... my IB was nasty. It's like rather than three or four zits popping up in a section of my face at a time, everything just got pushed to the surface all at once! It was truly gross. But that was just my own experience.
