  1. Acne Bumps/scars On Nose

    Hey, I have a couple on my nose as well. I will try the wart remover on one. If it works I'll do the other one. It's Salycylic acid 17% strength I'll see if it works.
  2. I retract from my last post. I now know you CAN use BP without moisturizer as long as you DO NOT use a lot. It works really well this way.
  3. oily skin

    Hi, yes I have really oily skin too. I find BP helps a lot because it causes dryness and decreases oil considerably and if you don't use BP just wash it off regularly or use paper to blot it off. I know some people say to not wash a lot but that is not true for me. The oil blocks my pores and causes acne. I merely rinse with water.
  4. Update: Been eating much healthier eliminated dairy and grains but I am still getting acne...it's also been difficult because I can only eat so much and I am losing too much weight. The upside is no cysts just small whiteheads but I'm still not sure if it is worth it. Been about two weeks now. I only use treatment at night though...I think I will need to use BP twice a day as much as I don't like to. Only in small amounts because my skin is too sensitive. 
  5. Update: I broke out. Took a while because I was a bit depressed about it. Diet DOES play a factor for me.  I pinpointed it down to greek yogurt/whey (dairy) or the shrimp. Shrimp is wierd seems REALLY healthy but it has always given me breakouts whenever I eat it. Whey well could be I've noticed an increase of acne where I don't usually get it such as cheeks and forehead. However I can't be certain. I was also eating peanut butter and bread. Oh and maybe it was the apple turnovers too...chocolate...Lots of things could have combined. Traditional stuff said to cause acne... That's how I know there is a diet/acne link. I get pimples where I don't usually get them. Usually acne mostly in my mustache/jawline/chin area but with these foods I get more everywhere and I also get more cysts. Without them they are rare.  So to hell with eating whatever I want. I must eat healthy. I can do without them. It's not that acne stops for me. It is just definitively less severe. The priority is getting rid of acne. Even if I stay so underweight. I don't even want to do trial and error. I'll see how it goes. No dairy/peanuts or baked goods and other such things.  I will update again see how it goes eating healthy. Goodnight.
  6. Hi, I'm really glad this works for you! 2 questions: What do you think about sliced bread or grains in general? And you say you're a bodybuilder how do you about getting enough protein and stuff?
  7. Vitamin D... I'm finally clear!!

    Hey I thought NOW foods broke me out too. I didn't think it would since it had olive oil as the ingredient. So twice it seemed to break me out. Now I use Jamieson (canadian brand). They only sell 1000ui tablets as that is the max in Canada. Doesn't make any sense since we are so far from the equator. Anyway so I buy the largest quantity bottle X2. It's good just that I have to take 5 tablets. But lasts me more than 3 months which isn't that bad. At first it was great but then it stopped helping my acne. But I still take it because it seemed to help my mood and help my immune system A LOT. But it's not a cure. I actively take magnesium too and upping my vitamin A intake recently. I hope it helps.
  8. Washing face? Good or bad?

    Thanks for responding!! But don't know guys I truly think there is nothing wrong with a good old h20 rinse. Sometimes I just feel and look too greasy and I hate it. I feel it causes my acne and I must get rid of it. It does not cause more oil or acne for me. I truly believe it helps me. And I don't look like a greaseball.
  9. What do you guys think about washing your face? I hear a lot of people who say only do it once or twice per day but I think more is better. It's the oiliness that is causing acne in the first place so as long as you take it off and let your skin breathe more often than not than it can only be better. It can't cause more acne or sebum production. If that were true than we would never have too much oil in the first place. Of course at night you can't wash your face much but that's when you use a topical which is drying anyway.
  10. Yes I have the same problem. It's the oiliness that is causing the dandruff. I have to use dandruff shampoo on my eyebrows but I think you should wash your face more often. As often as you need to suppress the oiliness. I know some people say don't wash your face a lot but really there's nothing wrong with it as long as you only use water mostly. But first I think you need to remove the dandruff you already have. I just use my nails xD
  11. Washing with only water?

    Well I tried it and it reduced my acne but never cured it and I just got a ton of dead skin and blackheads on my nose. It was not worth it for me.
  12. Well if you are using BP then you should always moisturize. It is so drying.
  13. Wash your face! A lot!

    Don't listen to those guys that tell you not to wash your face more than twice a day because you will only get more oiliness. If that were true then we would not have oiliness in the first place because our skin would GET it. Just use water to rinse it off when you need to.
