I JUST HAD AN EPIPHANY!!! Wouldnt Boosting Hormone Cure Acne?

13 January 2010 - 01:24 PM

ok heres my theory...

many of us suffer from acne because of the sh*T we keep putting on our face ie different moisturizers which claim to be non comdedogenic but clog ur pores anyway, but if we stop applying our moisturizers we end up with dry skin

so its like a catch 22 endless cycle...dont moisturize get dry skin. moisturize get acne

WHAT IF.....u took natural hormone boosters such as ZMA & Tribulus.....theoretically these products would cause more acne (but thats IF you only suffer from oily skin) if u had dry skin like me wouldnt this be the perfect solution???

take zma & tribulus...increase body's natural sebum production. use plain water & soap if necessary & STOP using all those crappy moisturizers which just clog pores .

is my theory flawed?
lol
