Dalacin T Topical Solution
Throughout the years I tried a LOT of products. Clean and Clear, Clearasil, Freederm, Oxy, Witch, Tea Tree, Garnier, Nuetrogena, Biore, T-Zone, you name it I've tried it! Most of the treatments didn't agree with my skin and dried it out terribly leaving dry, flaky patches, one boy asked why my nose was peeling which made me feel terrible and very disappointing as I felt I was getting somewhere. Clean and Clear was the worst for me so I stopped using that right away, and the Tea Tree stung my skin. I do however still use the Garnier face mask as it is gentle on my skin and is refreshing. I'd also tried homemade face masks such as egg whites, it made no difference, so I gave up. I'd read on the internet that Sudocrem was supposed to help with spots so I thought 'why not?' I had tried so many products that one more wouldn't kill me. It actually helped. It took down the redness and dried the spots out, I still use this from time to time!
Finally after 3 years when I reached fourth year (last year) I decided that I needed to seriously do something and get over my embarrassment. I finally made a trip to the doctors and was very optimistic. I told her about all the products I had tried and how they failed, that my skin was quite oily and how down having spots made me feel, she prescribed me a topical solution to use twice daily.
The solution I had been given to use was (and still is) Dalacin T Topical Solution witch has Clindamycin phosphate in it, now, I don't know what that was when I recieved the product so I did some research. Clindamycin phosphate basically kills the bacteria that causes acne by preventing the bacteria from forming properly thus prevents the spread of infection, it also allows the skin to heal. The solution is a clear liquid and you apply to the skin with a spongy blue applicator, it dries really fast so you can apply make up right away and sleep without the annoyance of a wet face, the only thing I dislike is that the smell is really strong and chemical like that the vapors make my eyes water when I apply it to my cheeks, but I guess that's just the product and I haven't had any other problems with it.
I have been using Dalacin T for just over a year now and it has been fantastic. I did notice results after only a few months regarding the size and number of spots, after around 9 months my forehead was almost completely spot free, I couldn't believe something was actually working, and so fast at that. It doesn't dry out my skin whatsoever and I did actually noticed that it feels slightly smoother and softer. I still do, and always probably will have some spots because there really is no magical product that will give you 100% clear skin. In a way I blame magazines that airbrush their models to look as if they have flawless skin, for a while I thought that's what 'normal' skin should look like, but I was wrong, nobody is perfect. I'm so much happier now, I have so much more confidence within myself, I don't have a comb over (haha) anymore and I have no reason to feel embarrassed about how my skin looks. Dalacin T has dramatically improved my skin and I just love it, I'm so glad I found the courage to go to the doctors and get something done rather than waste money on products that did more harm than good, I'm finally happy to be in my own skin!
