In Topic: Where To Get 50% Glycolic/lactic Acid Peel?

29 January 2014 - 11:09 PM

I bought 70% lactic acid off of Amazon a few months back, and I've seen lesser percentages too. You can also find Glycolic, Malic, and Acetic Acid at varying strengths on Amazon.
 
No wonder they own the online shopping world lol.


Any particular brand? Or does it not really matter?

 

It really shouldn't matter, I mean it is an acid with a defined chemical composition. Lactic acid from one seller is equal to lactic acid from another, assuming you're actually getting lactic acid and the other dilution component is not harmful. Just look for anything odd in the reviews before you buy, and make sure the seller has over 50 or so reviews, and you should be fine.

In Topic: The Big Hormone Post For Both Men And Women

 Hi, how are you? It seems like your hormones may just be a little out of whack, or you may be a woman with a high amount of testosterone. Do you have high libido? Do you have higher amounts of body hair then normal? You don't have to post answers to those, but those are good indicators of high androgens (male hormones). It's just genetics, and probably something you can do little about. I'd talk with your doctor, may be get a full blood test to check hormonal and vitamin levels, and then see if anything comes up. I bet your hormones are just still balancing, and in time things should even out for you. If you haven't already, I'd mention to the doctor your concerns about PCOS too.

Wow. Let me know who's not sick in 6-18 months of doing this; that's the real question. That vitamin D intake is high but not necessarily dangerous, but that much Beta Carotene has really not even been studied that much and has been hypothesized to be very dangerous long term; not to mention the risk that you could actually temporarily give your skin a yellow/orange hue to it.

 

We've all taken the risk and we're all fully clear. No need to keep swanning around these threads for advice or reviews - cleared. Hypothesised? I can also make the hypothesis that beta carotene will make me live up to the age 500. Hypothesises mean nothing. 

 

Spoken like a true "teenagebusta". Your hypothesis means nothing against the hypothesis of doctors that have a decade of graduate studies and possibly decades more of clinical and research experience. 

 

And I'm not trying to make you stop; this regimen will probably do that to you on its own. I'm trying to educate others on the dangers of just throwing down tremendous amounts of a vitamin just because you "think" it'll cure your acne, without considering what else it can do to you.

 

Consuming that much beta-carotene, as a Vitamin A precursor, could have similar effects to Accutane; good luck to you.

 

But follow through and give us a monthly progress report, and if you're right and there's no side effects you'll all be millionaires.
