In Topic: Help! I Need Help On How To Take Off A Fresh Scab On My Face, I Don't...

31 July 2014 - 06:58 AM

Well, unless you don't want your skin underneath to heal, I'd leave it there. The skin under a day old scab will be much redder than what you're experiencing now. Let it drop of naturally having healed the wound. If your boyfriend would 'think of you differently' because of a scab, then honestly, he isn't worth the worry. As for the picture, it should have healed by then and you can just conceal it. 

 

Not quite sure if this is an announcement or feedback on the forum either. 


In Topic: Can I Use A Moisturizer With Salicylic Acid Multiple Times A Day?

I did when I was on the regimen. Only 0.5% SA though. It's not recommended though!


In Topic: If Acne Was Caused By Diet Why Would It Only Start At Puberty?

I don't think the problem is always about what we DO eat, it's often what we don't. Deficiencies rather than intolerance's. Our bodies need specific nutrition to function and develop properly.

 

I've always had conflicted opinions on this subject, but if you think about it, it all makes sense. Not just in the case of acne, but all diseases. If we don't give our bodies the tools to fight it, it's going to continue to manifest.


In Topic: Acne.org Gave Me Eczema, Did The Formula Change?

Gave me it too. Well, definitely some form of dermatitis/eczema.  I may have had more severe acne pre-regimen, but 2 years later I'm still left with dry itchy skin around my eyes and nose that I never had before. It works for many, but I think there should be a disclaimer out there for those with sensitive skin types. I mean, there's people on this forum that can put BP on with a trowel, but me, even a little made my skin hang off like I'd just poured sulfuric acid over my head.

 

The Regimen is a great method for those that respond well to it, but you need to take regard the integrity of your skin post regimen and if you are to continue using it long-term. I worry for those that I see using the regimen that have really shiny (albeit acne-free) faces that almost look puppet-like - ain't a good look. 


In Topic: Can I Scrub In The 2Nd Week Of The Regimen?

04 March 2014 - 09:21 AM

No scrubbing. Use a chemical exfoliant such as glycolic acid. Dan has his own AHA which is 10% or you can buy Alpha Hydrox which I was recently recommended. Started using it today! :D
