Craziest thing you've ever done for your acne?

118 posts in this topic

Whilst painting the garage earlier I spent a rather disturbing amount of time staring at a roll of sandpaper. You doubtless all know what I was thinking. Which left me wondering - how many people have tried to sandpaper their skin off like some sort of deranged DIY microdermabrasion? It made me reminisce about the time I tried to offer my eternal soul to the devil (yes, I know) in exchange for nice clear skin. :lol:

So, what's the most ludicrous skin-related thing you've ever done?

lmao! That's nuts Calibos, but at least it's...organic?

Wart remover for me... Left nice little burn marks *thumbs up*. Or no wait! Hemorrhoid(sp?) cream. I used it for the cortisone, which supposedly helped with redness and inflamation. It was nasty shit!


The Regimen of One Who Loves to Experiment with New Products:

AM -

  • Some random gentle cleanser - usually with SA (Currently Phisoderm)
  • Jojoba Oil
  • Yes to Carrots Facial Moisturizer
  • Makeup: Philosophy The Present, MAC concealer, Benefit Some Kinda Gorgeous

    • Same cleanser, or sometimes I exfoliate
    • Jojoba Oil
    • Juice Organics Brightening Serum (trying it out for 1st time)
    • Spot treat with Clearasil (if need be)

    Taking Yasmin for hormonal breakouts.

Slathered my face nightly with Retin-A cream.

Or, exfoliating every morning with an AHA scrub and washcloth, and following that up with an astringent and a moisturizer that contained salicylic acid.

I actually used a pumice stone on a huge spot once that formed out of no where. Still got a big red mark to prove it tho its faded a lot over the years.

deciding to wash my face rigorously no less than 10 times a day for about 3 months. aaa shitted up my skin good and proper.

oh i also used to put on make up for work before i went to bed so i could sleep in an extra 10 minutes in the morning.


Do you believe you're missing out

That everything good is happening somewhere else

With nobody in your bed

The night's hard to get through

Dipped my face into a sink of malt liquor for a few minutes. I heard good things from the bum who decided, in all his wisdom, to offer me acne advice. Didn't do much and I smelled like a drunk for a few days. Probably not the smartest move I've ever pulled.

As for the " trying to make a deal with the Devil", I've done that too. Sadly, didn't get a response. Hell, I'd sell my soul to anyone on the org if they could make my face completely clear again.

Man, I love vaseline. It is wonderful. It doesn't break me out, either. I'm sorry it didn't work for you.
