This isnt anything new. Others tried this method in the same way with improvement and hope for a long long time and couldn't cure it. When they leaved them without aqua in time all gets worst again. Others are allergic to some of his components so they must change to another moustorizer.
Of course is better avoid some of the shit making things more easy but at the end u depend of it and that's why sucks.
This isnt an universal cure but could heal you completely like a few, who know. So continue.
