In Topic: Switching From 10% To 2.5% Benzoyl Peroixde

05 November 2013 - 09:45 AM

as long as you're happy with your current situation, don't switch. For most people, 10% BP can only be viably used as a spot treatment as best while 2.5 produces amazing results for their other needs. That said, if 10% BP is working for you, just stick with what works.


In Topic: Pantothenic Acid (B5) Log

18 October 2013 - 01:49 PM

Please for the love of god LOWER YOUR DOSAGE! I am supplicating you! I took 5g daily for three months and my hair started falling out. I was one of the lucky ones and my hair came back. I stopped taking B5 and obviously my acne came back, but it struck back with a  persistent vengeance that I had never seen. I started taking a food based multivitamin with vitamin B5 in it (only 50mg) with a host of other things. My skin has cleared up tremendously. I can give you the name of the vitamin if you want, but whatever you do, I am imploring you that you drastically reduce your dosage. I'm a pretty good source on anything B5 so please message me or something before you do perminate damage to your body.


In Topic: Vitamine B5 - Permanent Stomach Damage?

The real question is did the B5 work? Also it should be noted

Toxicity of pantothenic acid is unlikely. In fact, no Tolerable Upper Level Intake (UL) has been established for the vitamin. Large doses of the vitamin, when ingested, have no reported side effects and massive doses (e.g., 10 g/day) may only yield mild intestinal distress, and diarrhea at worst.


Are you sure you haven't developed Celiac disease or IBS or IBD? It's easy to blame other things on those.

Ps. Did the b5 really work? I want to try it.

 It does but megadosing will make your hair fallout lol. I think its safe for like two weeks and then reduce your dosage


In Topic: Benzoyl Peroxide Or Salicyclic Acid For Me?

08 September 2013 - 07:36 PM

If you only ever get nothing more severe than the occasional  medium-sized whitehead I'd recommend Salicylic acid. However, if its anything more than that, I would go for 2.5% benzoyl peroxide. So really, unless you have very mild acne and are not prone to a cyst every now and again, benzoyl peroxide is the better option. Salicylic acid is best for those with light acne while those that can get (not even necessarily often though but have the ability to) get either a large, bulbous swelling white head, or a cyst every so often. I find that paring this with a food-derived multivitamin and some vitamin D3 is the recipe for clarity.

You WILL experience the dry and burning effects if don't use a good moisturizer. That's really all there is to it. I would know because I have experienced those afflictions and I solved the issue by using Cetaphil's daily moisturizer.
