New Board Suggestion

Can we get a board for anti aging and skin care? I think it would be great.

A lot of people who have acne also are older and want to learn about things to look younger. You're right, its not about acne but it's about skin?

I think a lot of people would be into it.

Also we have a shaving and cosmetics board.

I'd be interested in it because I'd want to find 'anti-ageing' products that are ok to use while still dealing with acne - as well as learning more about it all

I would definitely be interested...being almost 33 years old and still dealing with acne, I'm also looking into anti-aging skincare that won't aggravate my acne-prone skin. Great idea!

I think they are trying to keep the number of subsection forums down, but if you use the new super search it should help you find a whole heap of threads to do with anti-aging.

My biggest tip (as a 41 year old) is to restrict your exposure to the sun. Thats the best anti-aging method known. I look at people's skin from colder climate countries (who do not use sun beds) and I'm just in awe of how beautiful their skin is. Even though I'm often told I look younger than 40 and have very few wrinkles, I still have a lot of sun damage from living in a hotter climate country (Australia). Baah!

After remaining clear for around 1.5 years following DKR (The Regimen), in March 2013 I decided to change to Epiduo. I use a pea size amount of epiduo each night, followed by a layer of topical antibiotic (Eryacne). I also apply Eryacne every morning and moisturise twice a day. After switching to Epiduo from the regimen I found that it took a good 3 months to get back to being perfectly clear again and now I might get one small pimple appear per month. I can live with that

I started following Dan's Regimen in September 2011 after suffering with acne for 20 years or so. I followed the Regimen instructions exactly and became 100% clear within 9-11 weeks. In December 2011 and after being consistently clear for over a month, I started to slowly reduce the amount of BP I used until I was only applying BP at night. My skin still remained clear however I sometimes switched to applying BP twice a day for a few days (perhaps once a month) if I felt a few under skin bumps starting to come up. I used acne.org products (including AHA and jojoba oil) and sometimes cetaphil moisturiser at night if I felt my skin was especially dry. In the gallery I show my week by week progress following the regimen.

I totally agree about restricting sun exposure. I am very fair skinned and I have always been diligent about avoiding the sun, and I know it has been key :)

The search function doesn't always work well for this. I'd like to be able to have a forum to be able to find and post stuff resulted to skin care for aging.

A lot of people come here for reviews etc even though they don't have acne. I think it would draw a lot of users here.

I know about the sun but thanks!
