Just wanted to let you know that I've been having no problems with the salicylic acid pre-toner and it has made an improvement, so I just went ahead and ordered the whole zit-zapper system. I always thought I was allergic to salicylic acid, because any time I used commercial products I'd get scaly and red with itching and burning. Daybreak's Willow Bark pre-toner doesn't cause me any problems, though! It stings a little going on, but as soon as it dries my skin is soft and smooth and healthy-looking. This has been a big help in keeping my skin clear
The breakouts very few and not so bad when I get them. My girlfriend says she can tell a big difference
My story is simple to tell, but agonizing to live through. I have suffered from acne for the majority of my life. Since the age of fifteen, I have had breakouts. When I say breakouts, I mean large red pimples--the kind that hurt when you rollover in your sleep, the ones that wake you up in the middle of the night, pimples. Of course, early on it was normal. I, like so many of my peers, was going through hormonal changes and most people thought it was the normal passage through life. It became more than that. Through my twenties, and now into my thirties, I have continued suffering from agonizing acne.
For the last ten years, I have caked my face with makeup, bought every anti-acne medicine over the counter, and seen numerous doctors to try to control this problem. From Proactive to Murad to prescriptions, nothing has transformed my skin to that of a normal thirty-something year old. I have tried diets, spreading toothpaste on my face, baking in the sun, whatever I had heard or read about to combat my problem. Nothing seemed to work. I would go through my day trying to not think about how my face looked to others. It was impossible, and everyone always had an opinion on how to help me get rid of the awful mess that was my face.
My ego became just as scarred as my face. My only option at that time was to go on a very strong drug called Accutane. The problem with that medication is that the side-effects are so severe. I could not put my health through the side-effects that this drug would cause. What else could I do, but just give up hope on ever having clear skin?
DayBreak Lavender Farm new Rhassoul ZitZap System came to my attention through my mother. My thoughts were, great--here goes another product to get my hopes up and then fail. It was a slow begining with this new product, and honestly, I did not put too much thought into it. But as the the weeks went on, my skin actually got better. I could not believe it--something was working!
As time has gone by, my face feels great, it looks great. No more rolling over in pain in the middle of the night. I actually can leave the house without makeup and feel good about myself. The freedom of not having to conceal my face under globs of makeup has been the greatest gift. I can now wake up in the morning and look at myself without disgust. The freedom and hope that this product has given me is indescribable.
Suffering for over twenty years from unsightly acne can not be summed up in this letter. The effects of freedom and beautiful skin, skin that I have not experienced in over twenty years, words fail to descibe. I had given up ever feeling beautiful and natural. I have found hope, and I suggest that anyone who suffers like I did, should try this system. It is life changing and it works!

WANT THE 411 ON SALICYLIC CRYSTALS?... Salicylic acid has been used in dermatology for the past 150 years. It is DayBreak's signature anti-acne ingredient and - along with Rhassoul -- will continue to be so in the future. In our opinion, no other exfoliating agent is superior to - more proven or safer - than salicylic acid.
Salicylic Acid is a beta hydroxy (BHA) acid derived from the bark of the White Willow Tree. And DayBreak has sourced a salicylic acid in crystalline form that is so active it dives into pores for super deep cleansing but is also so pure you can use it for month's on end! Even with dermatologist prescribed regimens like Accutane or harsher regimens like Pro-Active. In fact, its gentle formulations allow you to more successfully use these products by providing a break in an aggressive treatment protocol. Take a little DayBreak break and stay on track for success.
Did you know that the White Willow has been healing us for literally thousands of years? In the 5th century BC, Hippocrates discovered "a bitter powder extracted from willow bark that eases aches and pains and reduces fevers." The active extract of the bark, called salicin, after the Latin "salix" for willow, was isolated to its crystalline form in 1828 by Henri Leroux, a French pharmacist. And it is the crystals that are so effective in fighting whiteheads, blackheads, blemishes and acnes of all kinds!
It's hard to know where to start, there are so many benefits to salicylic acid in the crystal form.
• Halts the breakout cycle by killing the acne bacteria thus starving the zit's breeding ground of oil-saturated dead skin cells, surface debris, dirt and oil.
• Will not over-dry.
• Gentle, effective, non-allergenic exfoliator.
• Superb deep pore cleanser!
• Safe in the sun! It is not a photo sensitizer.
• Excellent anti-microbial properties which make it a star in acne elimination AND prevention.
• Anti-aging! This heal-all also slows down or interrupts the mechanisms that contribute to skin aging.
• Increaes the benefits of other therapies used in conjunction with it.
You see, beta hydroxy acids have a larger molecule than their cousin, alpha hydroxy acids. The larger molecule size keeps the beta hydroxy acid on the surface of the skin and in the pores for maxxed out deep pore cleansing and exfoliation. This unique in-pore action ideal for keeping acne-prone skin clear and for attacking whiteheads, blackheads and all acne-related blemishes.
AND HERE'S THE 411 ON RHASSOUL SMECTITE CLAY... Rhassoul Smectite Clay ...Most clays draw out impurities, toxins and dermal wastes. Only Rhassoul does all that PLUS! deposits zinc, copper, lithium, potassium, calcium and an entire payload of minerals to feed and rebalance your skin AND exfoliates to stimulate skin function and enhance its appearance. It is truly one of Mother Earth's miracles for the skin.
The mineral properties of Rhassoul Clay were studied extensively and presented at the 12th meeting of the National Institute of Phytotherapy in Paris in 1985. Rhassoul Clay contains a high percentage of lithium, zinc, silica, magnesium, potassium, and calcium.
Rhassoul clay's most impressive properties in skin improvement are its capacity of absorption and adsorption due to its high level of ion exchange.
