#3266977 Bp/salicylic Acid + Other Topicals..honest Opinions From Those On This Board?

Posted by FSAS on 18 July 2012 - 12:47 AM

I had someone tell me today that I should use salicylic acid to help clear my clogged pores mainly around my mouth/chin and forehead. of course I said no because it's a chemical and I want to avoid chemicals on my face as I'm already stuck wearing makeup just to go outside. Then I realized I don't really know much about salicylic acid and had me wondering what people on this board think in general about such topicals advocated around this site...is it terribly bad for the skin? if you use it..do you literally have to keep on using it..forever? does it age skin? what exactly does it do to the skin? what are the opinons on salicylic acid from the people of this board? or even BP.

I wanted to post here as I'm also very curious if other people here use it, have used it or what people more inclined to this section of the site use to clean their skin topical wise every day?


#3190539 Why Do Anti-Androgens Work So Well? Whats Happening Inside?

Posted by FSAS on 11 December 2011 - 02:27 AM

I'm sure I've tried to understand countless times but I'm curious why anti-androgens work so well? Why are we in the position to need to use anti-androgens just to control acne and of course coming off them = acne comes back. I understand using bcp can mess up your hormones or even having to go on bcp just to treat it, but why is it impossible to fix your hormones and keep it that way?.. always seems to just come back.
Can someone explain why we have this androgen issues and whats going on there and why only anti-androgens work to control it?
I'm a little confused, still, why this is happening in myself and why all of a sudden at the age of 19 nearly 20. spiro kept me 99% clear (havent tried other anti-androgens but I've heard of others like flutamide etc). is there a way to re-create the affect of anti-androgens without taking meds? Just dont understand why i even need an anti-androgen to live my life, why my body wont be normal like most people in the world. more so why now, when i didnt have acne when i hit puberty nor when i switched pills 2 possibly 3 times.
does anyone have any insight?

moonbase, would you consider 1-2 eggs a day and salmon every couple of days too much fat? I often eat 1-2 eggs a day because i get hungry a lot and they seem to help, i also use coconut oil. I also used to eat a lot of nuts because they also filled me up and i never had a problem with nuts. Im thinking about cutting them out for good though and sticking to eggs and salmon. what are your thoughts on b5 also im curious :)
