Ed - In
responsive to Mike on Aveda products
(April-May, 2002), I've been using Aveda for about three years with good
results. The All-Sensitive Shampoo works well, but the Rosemary
Mint Shampoo works equally as well.
They both work well enough that I have been wearing black T-shirts
this summer. The Energizing
Body Cleanser works well as a daily body wash.
I've found that soap can sometimes dry out the P too much.
I'm 31 and have had P in various stages since age 6.
I currently use Aclovate on my face and a Dovonex and Ultravate
combo on arms and legs that used to work well but is now only fair.
Thankfully I get lots of sun swimming a couple of times a week and
that seems to help. It doesn't
bother me to wear shorts, swimsuits or T-shirts.
If someone thinks my skin is ugly that's their problem not mine!
Thanks for the site. It's
always interesting. -John
Response: Thanks for sharing,
John. I’ll bet the Aveda
line did well this summer in the U.S.
Moisturizers in general probably did well here!
I, too, am using the Dovonex/Ultravate combo right now and it’s not doing much for me at all. I’ll be visiting the derm in a few days and will probably ask for a prescription adjustment. Probably back to the old standby, Temovate (clobetasol propionate). -Ed
