New Cetaphil Moisturizer For Acne-Prone Skin

03 April 2014 - 05:23 PM

Saw a new cetaphil moisturizer at the store today (cetaphil oil-control moisturizer). I've had trouble with their other ones clogging my pores. Anyone tried this one yet?  http://www.cetaphil....isturizer-spf30


Primer Suggestions

09 November 2013 - 10:55 AM

It seems every time I use a primer under my foundation my pores become clogged and I'll breakout in tiny pimples, much different than my regular acne. Has anyone found a primer that works well and does not clog pores/break you out?

Homeopathic Medicine

So as soon as my skin got clear of active acne, the pores on my cheeks started becoming clogged again with closed comedones which started turning a few into cysts. I was at the vitamin shoppe and saw they have pills just for acne (which you usually think are just scams), so spur of the moment I thought why not. First off I will say they are expensive, $25 for 60 pills and you have to take 2-4 pills a day till your acne clears then 2 for maintenance. There is a money back guarantee though so if it doesn't work for you I guess no loss. I'm not here because I'm getting paid by a company either, I'm just always looking for a supplement to help with acne since I already eat extremely healthy. So the first couple days I took 2 pills in the morning and 2 at night. All the clogged pores are gone now after a week and the cysts are almost gone, so weird, because I've never had anything get rid of them so fast, not even antibiotics. I'm going to keep taking them for a couple months though to make sure it's not just a fluke.

 

Here's the ingredients list, which is kind of vague,

 

Natrum Muriaticum 6C, 12C, 30C; Kali Bromatum 6X, 12X, 30C; Thuja Occidentalis 30C; Arsenicum Bromatum 4C, 9C, 12C; Tuberculinum Residuum 6C; Calcarea Picrata 6X, 12X, 30X; Sulphur Iodatum 6X, 12X; Aloe Vera 10X; Calcarea Sulphurica, Kali Sulphuricum 6X; Viola Tricolor 1X. In a base of: L-Cystine, L-Glutamic Acid, L-Cysteine, PABA, Radix Angelicae Sinesis, Radix Salviae Miltiorrhizae, Herbalamnae, Pyridoxine HCL, Magnesium Oxide, Methionine bound Zinc, Retinol, Beta Carotene, Ergocalciferol, Gelatin, Rice Flour, and Dextrose.

 

 


Acid Reflux And Acne?

12 April 2013 - 10:25 AM

Is there a correlation between acid reflux and acne? Could having acid reflux exacerbate acne? I was recently diagnosed with having acid reflux (had the ph test and all.) But for the past couple months I've given up and cut back on things that made my reflux worse and my acne has also improved.


Random Poll On Whose Skin Turns Black From Gold?

16 February 2013 - 01:00 PM

So my friend rubbed a gold ring against my skin on my hand and it turned my skin black like i drew on my hand with black crayon. She said it's because of low iron but i've had all my levels checked and they are within normal range. I tried this on other people and it doesn't happen with most. Curious why this is? What causes the chemical reaction on the skin?
