Does Everyone Here Moisturize?

5 posts in this topic

I don't moisturize any where I put the BP on my body. I had pretty moderate to severe back acne when I was 16 until I was around 20. My routine consist of a shower at night, wait 5 minutes for back to dry, apply 1-2 pumps of BP, and air dry for 10-15 minutes before doing anything else. I noticed though, that when I sleep in a tank top and my back is exposed, I may get a bump after a day or two but when I wear a t-shirt or anything that covers my back, I don't get any. I also have long hair and I tie it up when I sleep to keep off my back and out of my face. Hopes this helps :)

PS, the BP doesn't dry out my back nor does it cause my skin to darken. Also, I didn't start exfoliating (very gently too I might add!) my back with a loofah until a couple of months back. At first it caused some acne but after a few days, it went back to being clear. Just remember to be gentle.

lchance23, I was thinking of trying zinc oxide because a few people recommended it. What cream would you recommend for sensitive, oily skin? All I could find it in was diaper rash powder. Is there a zinc oxide ointment/ cream specifically for the face?


Current regimen: garlic supplements [as needed], Enzymedica gluten blocker [as needed], nicadan [not sure if it works yet]. I try to simplify as much as I can. Don't take more supplements than you need....try one at a time and be patient.

The supplements that really helped me when my acne was at its worst: inositol, DIM [not as frequently now!] digestive enzymes [don't need them every day anymore, only on cheat days], herpanacine & vitamin C with rose hips/ low acid [not every day], regular sun exposure for vitamin D3, superoxide dismutase (SOD) enzyme supplements. NOTE: I do not recommend DIM for long term use, and I do not recommend hormonal creams without doctor supervision.

Lifestyle & Skin Care: acupuncture, regular exercise/ yoga, low histamine diet, avoiding unnecessary stress, balancing skin's PH (using Image Ormedics), using distilled/ filtered water to wash face, occasional high frequency facials...
