In Topic: My Epiduo experience

16 January 2012 - 06:44 PM

call me crazy but i wash my face with head & shoulders and then apply epiduo and i still dont get any burns or irritation like everyone here talks about. there was an initial breakout but its minimal considering head & shoulders dries your face quite a bit so the acne you do get is very small and dried up. my advice to people starting out would be to wash with h&s shampoo, then apply a PEA size of epiduo before bed. i stress PEA because you only need a smidgen of this stuff for it to work. also try to spread it as thinly as possible and do not use any moisturizer unless your skin starts to crack from h&s. like bp, your skin should get used to it though.

In Topic: Second hand smoking and acne. What do you think?

no. second hand smoke is even a debatable issue whether it causes increased risk of lung cancer.

In Topic: B-Complex Vitamins will break you out....

niacin is a b-vitamin and it has cured some peoples acne. didn't cure mine, but i did see improvements and I'd suggest it as a possible treatment. for some it has worked better than accutane.

this is confusing to read. aren't all creams oil based? so what makes this special again?

No good explanation really. Accutane is a really weird drug, it's up and down. It might be your body responding to accutane fighting your hormone fluctuations.
