In Topic: Stopped Working?

19 December 2014 - 01:35 PM

It's likely a change in your hormone levels.  My daughter uses sulfur.  It got her clear for some time and then it stopped working.  So our esthetician ramped up her sulfur medication and she got clear again and has stayed clear.  

 

You likely need a ramp up.  We've had great results with Lumiplexion.  Dan's products do not offer customization, which many people need.  If you want to go the website www lumiplexion .com and send her a text or email.  Tell her what your skin is like (a picture is better) and what products you're currently using.  She will design a plan for you.  Her products last a long time.  We've gone to her for over 25 years.  


In Topic: Benzoyl Peroxide Moisturizer?

Are you sure it's a moisturizer you're using?  The Acne-Free repair lotion is treatment not a moisturizer.  I don't think you can buy a true moisturizer with BP.  


In Topic: 2.5% Bp Cleansers Available Over-The-Counter?

Most of the store brand acne products are a bunch of junk anyways.  

 

I use a lot of the Lumiplexion line.  She's a esthetician who has sold acne products for about 25 years.  She carries both a 5% or 10% BP scrub or wash (scrub exfoliates, wash is gentle).  Her recommendation is to use the scrub or wash and massage it into your face for at least one minute.  Then rinse off and use the cleanser.  

 

She generally would start you off only using her cleanser, an SA acid medication (which goes on like a toner), followed by sunscreen.  At night you would wash and use the BP medication (or sulfur medication if you're allergic to BP).  She may also recommend the sulfur mask.  My daughter cannot use BP, and the Lumiplexion sulfur cleared her skin and has kept it that way for about four years now.  

 

Her products cost more than Acne.com but less than Proactiv.   I highly recommend her line, as it was designed specifically for acne skin.  


In Topic: Black Soap Caused More Breakouts?

Curious to know if you continued to use the black soap.  My daughter has used it consistently for several years now.  It's the only soap she will use.  

 

We buy the bar from Amazon, grate a small portion with a cheese grater, mix with warm water, and use it in a pump bottle.  


In Topic: St. Ives Apricot Scrub Broke Me Out!

Store face products are crap.  They do nothing for acne.  Acne is BIG business for manufacturers.  Keep buying their crap and keeping having acne, which means you'll try more of their crap.  You need to use products that are no made by big business.  Stop trying to find the cheapest thing you can find on the shelf to be your miracle.  It's not there.
