In Topic: My Method To Clear Skin!

25 July 2013 - 06:19 PM

Most of everything I do for my skin is topical, it works, for the most part, but I'm really curious about what I could do internally that would fight acne. I don't have a ton of money to spend on this stuff, I'm not broke but I can't afford to spend hundreds of dollars and pills.

 

The vitamin d3 that I personally use is one by 'healthy origins' -- you can get a bottle of 360 (so basically 1 year's supply) for £8'ish so it's very affordable.

 

>I'm really glad that there's other teens out there that actually care about skincare/wellbeing. I'm in my teens, and most of my friends just think I'm weird talking about all this skincare stuff but they sort of let me be because they know it works lol. 

 

Would you care so much about skincare if you didn't have acne-prone skin? I know I wouldn't.

 

If I didn't have acne, I don't think I would care about skincare at all. When I didn't have acne skincare was never something I thought about or payed attention to because to me, it wasn't very important. I sometimes wonder what my life would be like if I didn't have to spend just about every waking moment thinking about my skin. Thanks for the recommendation I will look into it!

The type of acne I get is usually non inflamitory, it's more on the mild/moderate side. However, I do get blemishes/infected whiteheads (pustules) from time to time. (my skin is pretty clear at the moment, but if I didn't treat it that would be the type of acne I would be getting) If you had to pick only one of these vitamins to be your favorite, which would it be? And what one do you think is the most beneficial, like what one would you recommend to most people?

 

The reason I ask is because though I love my skincare routine, it can be really extensive. It's kind of a hassle to keep up with, (i use benzoyl peroxide, 2.5%) so if I could simplify it a little that'd be great. Any advice? Thanks for sharing, this is information is very useful.

The Benzyl Peroxide is completely fine! I was thinking about getting a tube myself to help a little bit. Just make sure you use it in moderation smile.png the combination of vitamins and benzyl peroxide will help

I think I am definitely going to have to try Zinc. Dan, the founder of this site uses it in correlation with his regimen... So I'm definitely going to look into it. Probiotics sound interesting; do you have a preferred kind/brand?

In Topic: I Need Answers :( The Regimen

2.5% is just as effective as 10%, only 2.5% will not dry out and irritate your skin as much. I personally do not have any experience with 10% benzoyl peroxide, but I'm using 2.5% and it cleared my mild/moderate acne pretty quick when I was using it twice a day, I only use it once a day now and I still get a blemish or two but for the most part I'm very happy.

Your skin is looking great by the way, good luck!


In Topic: Summer Challenge! Clear Skin For Back To School! (Hopefully!)

18 July 2013 - 11:28 AM

When I first came on here last year, I was convinced I was the youngest person on the site struggling with acne, lol. (i was 13, i am 14 now) so don't worry, you're not alone. 

I could go more in depth with my story, but basically after trying so many things and having horrible self-confidence for 3 years, I was done. I had enough. My medication that I was on cost WAY too much money and wasn't very effective, so I needed something else. I tried the acne.org Regimen on a whim, and I got what I wanted! Clear skin for the summer. It has been more than a year since I've been using acne.org products (I don't really follow the regimen exactly any more, once my skin was clear I experimented with ways to perfect it) I still break out sometimes, but my skin is so much better than it used to be.

 

THE TRICK TO SUCCESS: Stay determined, dedicated, and have faith! Never give up.

Your skin is looking great by the way! Good luck! 

 

ps. Remember, start slowly! A big mistake I made was using way too much bp way too fast. Be patient, and start VERY slowly.
