In Topic: Question About Using Dead Sea Salt Bath For Body Acne?

19 June 2013 - 07:23 AM

I would. Also for those times when you don't have time to bath you can use the sea salt as a body scrub on you back, leave on for 5 mins. It may sting a little but it's all good!

how much sun do you get per day?

I don't get it everyday on a regular basis because I live In england but as its summer recently I have been spent last week In the sun pretty much everyday. However I want be able to do this for much longer so I'll just get out in it whenever I can.

ok guys sorry i have not been on in a while ive been busy with my university work. however I have been using my brush and my dead sea soap with head and shoulders  everyday. I've also been getting a lot of sun and that seems to help me, remember sun cream up tho! anyway I think I have had some improvements. i also try and keep my shirt of for as much as possible (weird I know for someone with back acne i know) but I think it helps to let the skin breath. And screw it I'm not ashamed anyway. ahaha anyway here is a picture i took just a minute ago

Let us know if anything works

i think it is slow and steady


After 4 years of different treatments for bacne, I have used exfoliation chemical and brushes, light therapies, natural remedies (such as egg whites), Retin A cream, Antibiotic cream and I have been on about 4 different antibiotics. The dermatologist told me that the only option was Roaccutane but I wasn't so keen. I am so glad I said no, I was given benzoyl peroxide 2.5% and told basically to get on with it. My acne was very similar to yours, I have stopped exfoliating my skin and started with the benzoyl peroxide every night. I have also stopped having any dairy (which is annoying 'cause I like milk) and started taking vitamins A, B and E. I wore a backless dress yesterday, for the first time in 4 years! I do think the key is to be gentle with your skin, use BP and cut out dairy (the vitamins may be helping but Its rather difficult to know). If you are going to use that scary looking brush on your back, make sure you drop the bristles in boiling water, otherwise you just put the bacteria back on you back. (A better option may be exfoliation gloves or mittens as you can just put them in the wash). Drink lots of water too smile.png

Im really happy your regime has worked! For me personally I will never take accutane. And yes water is super key!! x

ok sooooo couldn't get sulphur soap at my local boots go figure however i did by some alternatives and here is my haul

ok so after the first shower using the dead sea black mud soap and the brush my skin felt smooooooth, however i wouldn't recommend using it on the face as i did as its pretty drying.... I am not prone to acne on my face though. It is also true what they say about don't scrub you back i used the brush, which lets just say is not built for the faint hearted, and Im a little soresaywhat.gif , smooth but sore.

Anyway I'm going to keep going, Rome wasn't built in a day and all that.....

I personally don't think that your acne looks so severe that is is cystic, rather it might just be papules. Are your zits really painful and swollen, and do they scar without you even popping them? Also, do they feel really hard and have pus? this would indicate that they are cystic.

thankfully I can answer no to all of that, they do get very red at times though. thanks for you help.
