Vaseline...Well what can I say, I was young and dumb.

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

Take responsibility for your health; read the full prescribing information for any medication you take and understand that not all risks or potential side effects will likely ever be fully known.

Washing with an antibacterial wash, a salycilic acid wash, using a toner with alcohol in it and then not moisturising eusa_wall.gif

well, my nan told me that blueberries were good for the skin!

So i stupidly crushed a crapload of blueberries and put it all over my face, like a face mask!
Turns out i was supposed to eat the berries, not smush them all over my face

Suffice to say, i was left with a bit of a blue face for a while

No selling my soul to the devil here, but I did try transcendental meditation while my face was covered in ice. yinyang.gif (I don't understand it either)

I also took nail clippers once.... dry.gif

Taking Accutane was perhaps the single best decision of my life.
Not taking it sooner was quite possibly the biggest mistake.

Amateurs ! You're all good for nothin' wink.gif

I got a towel, soaked it ALL with Salycilic Acid 5% and left it on my face ALL NIGHT.
The results in the morning ... well ... where to begin with ? Perhaps with the question where the fuck is my face ? I got SO burned, it was like washing your face with boiling water.
The Acid made some kind of canals through my skin. It was bleeding all the time and was red as hell. To sum up - there was almost no skin left, especially on my forehead.
It took me 2 months to heal. Praise be deflagmol.

Yes, I have scars now, pretty big ones at that.

Yes, I am stupid.

You know the urban legends about how duct tape or rubbing with a potato make warts go away? Well, I figured they must work for acne too. They didn't.
