Exposed Skincare Product Line... Any Good?

15 April 2014 - 08:30 PM

Has anyone tried the Exposed Skincare (http://www.exposedskincare.com/) product line? If so, how did you like it, and what form of acne--as in type and severity--do you have?

 

I'm especially curious to know if it helps with cysts/nodules, though from I've heard, nothing topical really prevents hormonally-driven breakouts.

 

 

Thank you,

Lerosett: Has Anyone Tried It?

15 April 2014 - 09:07 AM

Does anyone have any experience with LEROSETT for acne? I've been reading and watching very positive online reviews about the acne-clearing system (http://www.gunillaof...om/Lerosett.php). It's not a cheap regimen but seems to help many people--including those with severe nodulocystic acne.

 

 

Thank you,

Oral Vs. Injectable Vit. B12: Breakout Risk?

15 April 2014 - 06:49 AM

Is there a connection between breaking out from Vit. B12 that's taken orally vs. B12 that's injected? I'm wondering if breakouts caused by certain B vitamins result specifically from the digestive process?

 

I'm deficient in Vit. B12. In 2010, I received several Vit. B12 injections over a month-long period. I don't recall breaking out from them, but my Vit. B12 level didn't increase nearly as much as the doctor had hoped; so I stopped the injections.

 

Due to some ongoing symptoms, I'm considering trying the injections again--possibly for a longer time period, if necessary. But I worry about possibly breaking out from them this time around. Still, maybe B vitamins injected into the bloodstream don't have a breakout effect; maybe it's just an issue with B vitamins that are first broken down by the digestive system. Hmmm...

What Supplements Normalize Sebum?

13 April 2014 - 04:50 PM

Does anyone know what supplement(s) help normalize ("thin out") sebum, making it less thick/sticky and, thus, less likely to cause breakouts?

 

I recall an Acne.org member mentioning that a certain supplement--or supplements?--helps reduce the viscosity of sebum but can't recall what was recommended.

 

 

Thank you,

B Vitamins And Breakouts?

13 April 2014 - 03:04 PM

Can anyone shed some light on which B vitamins--and at which strength(s)--are good for helping prevent and/or heal acne lesions?

 

Every time I've tried taking a Vit. B Complex, I developed nodulocystic acne within 3 days' time. Sometime thereafter, someone on this forum stated that one of the B vitamins--I forget if it's B2 or B6, maybe?--can cause acne if it's concentration is greater that 50 mg.

 

 

Thank you,
