Aana, what wash do you use? I am looking for a new one with 1% SA. I used to use Philosophy but that has hydrogen peroxide in it and I am worried about free radicals. I also cannot use anything with fragrance as I have sensitive skin.

i use saslic foaming face wash.its got 1% SA.

its pH balanced (5.5)

there's another one saslic DS 2%SA but i've not found the need to increase the concentration.

 

its not too drying btw!

 

Thank you so much Aana. It looks like it is sold mainly in India but I'm going to find a way to get my hands on it for sure! Do you mind posting the ingredients on your bottle? I cannot find them online. It would be such a help if you can. Thank you smile.png

 actually,it only says 1% SA.

it doesnt have any fragnance.i've been using it more more than 3 months now.

dont u get any SA wash there?

whats the weather there?

i found a few sites which does ship products.i'll PM u if u want.

 

btw,we r actually hijacking the post i guess.sorry about that.

we can PM instead(if its anything not related to this post).

 

Yes, please PM me. Sorry OP for hijacking :) But I do have kind of the same issue but my bumps are on my right temple. My sister tells me it looks like a heat rash. I am going to the derm to check to make sure it is not fungal etc.

In Topic: How I Cleared My Acne After 26 Years. Try It.

Hello, I would like to join in this thread and regimen. I have already been off refined sugar and gluten for months now. I found that it improved my acne in that if I didn't put anything on my face (moisturizer) I wouldn't get acne. Of course this is not acceptable especially in the dead of winter. 

 

Four weeks ago, I went grain-free, nightshade-free, legume-free, dairy-free and nut-free. It is basically an auto-immune paleo approach with moderate carbs (only tubers like sweet potatoes and taro. I aim for about 120g a day from starches). I can sense small improvements but I had hoped to be further along by this point. Anyway, now that I have adjusted to that diet, I want to add the juicing. I used to drink green smoothies daily but I found it gave me heartburn which I think is related to the amount of fiber. So I have bought a juicer instead and today I had about four ounces. I plan to do this for a week and then increase the amount.

 

I also take 25mg of chelated zinc a teaspoon of cod liver oil daily. In about a month's time, I plan to try adding the B5. 

 

Thank you very much for this thread and especially for the sample timeline for improvement.

I think you are better off stimulating your own production.

 

I agree, but I thought I would try this as a quick fix to see if it would help. I am also not sure how to stimulate my own production. Should I just try lemon water before each meal? I had started doing that but stopped because I was having heartburn. Now I know the heartburn was due to me drinking green smoothies. The fiber was the culprit. 

 

I am reading up on ways to naturally produce more stomach acid but I can't quite figure it out because low stomach acid causes bacterial overgrowth. Bacterial overgrowth causes low stomach acid. Which one do I try to address first!??!?!
