In Topic: Olay Foaming Face Wash (Sensitive)

24 January 2015 - 04:14 PM

Highly recommend black soap versus almost any store facial cleanser with tons of chemicals that strip your skin.   We liquefy the black soap into a pump bottle.  One bar would last a person a whole year if used correctly for about $10 a bar.  


In Topic: Sulfur On Acne

24 January 2015 - 04:06 PM

Sulfur is great for acne.  Not as fast-acting as BP, but effective.  My daughter cannot use BP and has been on sulfur for about four years now.  Be careful what you buy in the store.  She tried a few store products and they broke her out bad.  We use Lumiplexion for almost all our acne products.  You can email me if you want specific information.  I have used it for 25 years now.  My daughter had moderate to severe acne.  The sulfur took two to three months to work but her skin is beautiful and she has almost no acne scars now, even though her acne had left a lot of marks during her breakouts.  My son has just started using her BP product.  


In Topic: Do Your Pimpels Leave A Lump Before They Fully Heal?

My son had that happen to a pimple on his nose.  He started putting apple cider vinegar on it, and it has gotten much smaller.  The bump was on his nose for over a month and not going away.  Try the apple cider vinegar.  It just helps speed up the process.


In Topic: Every Moisturizer I Use Give Me Whiteheads Should I Give Up Moisturizer?

14 January 2015 - 12:09 AM

Lumiplexion has a light moisturizer that will not break you out.  It is mostly aloe vera.  Their sunscreen also has a light  moisturizer in it and most of the time I just use the sunscreen and no additional moisturizer.  You can check it out on the website www lumiplexion .com   The ingredients are not listed, but you can email or call her (California time).  She will gladly tell you why you're breaking out with whiteheads and what to do about it.  I have used Lumiplexion for about 25 years for my acne-prone skin.


In Topic: I Finally Cleared My Acne With Diet

08 January 2015 - 08:09 AM

If you've read these boards at all, you would know diet is not a cure for acne.  Diet has almost no effect on some people's acne.  Really your gut has nothing to do with acne. It is a hormonal issue and a genetic issue.  

 

Glad to hear it cleared up your mild acne, but it really is not that easy.
