ONE topic is enough.  More than one topic = spam.

Don't feed the troll.  Thanks.

#3174913 The Timehealsall Megathread

Posted by Wynne on 31 October 2011 - 03:51 PM

I'm not the antibiotic authority.  Ask a derm.  AND, my signature states I do not respond to PMs.  Do not send me any more at all.

i never said you were the antibiotic authoriy... just wanted your opinion on matters. I don't get why you have to come off as so mean.

Because you don't listen and have sent me umpteen million PMs already.

Stop basking in your misery and continue to seek help.  I'm totally done with this thread.

Find your pulse in your wrist.  I use two fingers to find the pulse as it is a bit easier and doesn't require so much painstaking situation of one finger to get it right.

Relax and count your pulse.  Continue trying to relax however you find the best for you.  I can reduce my pulse by 5-10 bpm by concentrating on it.  It is a form of meditation, mindfulness.  There are definite health benefits to even just 5-10 minutes daily of meditation.  You can work this into your routine perhaps at bedtime.

Sometimes just the mere fact of focusing awareness on your pulse will help you begin to control it.

I can't say specifically how you should relax as everyone has a different technique.  I just say in my mind, "relax"  'Slower"  "calm"  And visualize the bpms getting slower.  That works for me.  I also close my eyes and visualize everything relaxing comfortably.

You will find that working on your pulse will get you into a meditative state and your BP will also likely decrease.

#3081459 Washing face 5+ times a day

Posted by Wynne on 13 May 2011 - 04:49 PM

Wash only once or twice a day.  Blot the other times.  Blotting papers work great.

The skin does not sense the amount of oil on it and the sebaceous glands do not change production of sebum EXCEPT when medications change the rate.

Sadly, mainstream medicine usually tailors the diagnosis to meet the available treatment. Most doctors function as bureaucrats, shoving patients into pigeonholes and then dishing out whatever the "high priests" of their profession have decided is the right drug/ operation for that pigeonhole. Whether diagnosis is accurate or meaningful, or treatment effective doesn't matter at all. Basically, mainstream medicine is the labelling and treatment of symptoms. As such, it can never move beyond the management of ill health. That suits many doctors (and all drug companies) just fine: patients, who fully recover, aren't very profitable. ...

Patently false.  There's a great deal of pride in getting a patient to recover fully and to save lives.

#2966358 do nodules/cysts go away or does the core have to be extracted?

Posted by Wynne on 16 October 2010 - 08:51 AM

Squeezing a cyst is an excellent way to get indented, permanent scarring.  They CAN go away on their own.  For really bad ones, either go to a derm/GP for cortisone injection or SURGICAL, professional extraction, or try the tips in my signature, the link that starts "What to do.."

This isn't a cell phone; it's far easier to read typing when it's done normally.

#2875774 Clinique Dark Spot Corrector

It's a dark spot corrector... SPOT. lol
Plus if that was meant for my whole face twice a day then the bottle would be finished in a week, ya hurd meh?!?!

Whole face, twice a day.  Salicylic acid will also help prevent new breakouts as it's comedolytic and also exfoliates within the pore itself, not just on the skin.  The gentle exfoliating effect of (probably 2%) salicylic acid helps even out the entire facial skin.

SA is a great treatment for red marks/dark marks or post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.

You call them dark spots lol

You don't need to apply any cream.

Just drink 8 glasses of water a day and take a couple of multi v's and those marks will be gone in 1-2 weeks.

Yep, this is the Red/Dark marks left after acne forum.

And dark marks, red marks don't always go away so quickly on their own.

#2874060 Eating organic/healthy on a budget

Posted by Wynne on 21 May 2010 - 05:31 PM

When I lived in a small apartment I grew my own veggies on the small porch out front.  Don't forget that method!

I just bought a wicker laundry basket, filled it with soil and a liner, and then grew bell peppers, tomatoes, and a tiny bit of lettuce.  I also made an indoor 'greenhouse rack' that I hung grow-lights on for starting the seedlings from seed.  I grew both pretty stuff and tasty stuff (flowers, and veggies).  Some flowers (research which ones) make a lovely garnish on salads.

You don't need a huge space, just a small area of garden if you live at home, to make a little garden that will give you some nice edibles for guaranteed organic.  The veggies won't be as pretty as those found in grocery stores because they'll be subject to normal predation by insects/birds, but you can share some with those creatures just fine.

#2867413 "Hot or Not" threads will be closed.

Posted by Wynne on 11 May 2010 - 09:06 PM

It has come to the attention of the moderators that some members profess to not understand why certain threads are closed.

Acne.org policy regarding what we like to call "Hot or Not" threads: "Hot or Not" threads will be closed. Not only are the threads counterproductive to the original poster, but over the years we have seen those types of threads devolve into: 1. Bragging and fishing for compliments, 2. Bickering, name-calling and even calling out, 3. Very little useful advice, 4. No relation to acne whatsoever. There's a Lounge for off-topic posts. We understand that you may feel down about your acne but please try to understand how your thread could affect other people's perceptions of themselves.

Threads where members post pictures of themselves and ask to be rated by their peers only reaffirm that we are only as good as what other people think of us. And besides that, "Hot or Not" threads have a tendency to attract trolls and instigate bickering.

Obtain your self esteem from accomplishments and abilities, not just appearances.

This policy pertains to the whole board, not just the Emotional and Psychological Effects of Acne board.

There are plenty of sites for you to post images of yourself for others to rate. Acne.org is not one of those sites.
