In Topic: How I Stopped My Oily Skin In 2 Weeks!

Ah okay, makes sense. Was it still too expenisve for you even with the generic brand of Accutanes?

Are you still using the peppermint oil to decrease your oil? Your results on that were impressive and I could imagine that something like that could be used long term.

I look forward to your progress and results. Good luck!

 

The generic brands weren't prohibitively expensive, but I still wanted to find a cheaper alternative. I've stopped peppermint oil and all other topicals for the time being. I've used so many different products on my skin over the past year that I want to give it a break.

I didn't blot my skin. I tried lowering, but my eyes were extremely dry as well. I feel like it has done some permanent damage to my bones, because they pop alot now. I would not reccomend this to anybody.

 

What brand of vitamin A did you use?

Jofo, I know you used to use Accutane low dose. How come you stopped doing it?

 

I stopped using it because I was worried about the long-term side effects, and it was very expensive. I've been searching for a safer and cheaper alternative because I would rather not be dependent on Accutane for the rest of my life. It did work, though.

I start to see the first beads of oil about 20 minutes after washing my face. By the 3-hour mark, a blotting sheet that I press onto my face will be soaked in oil.


In Topic: Questions For Fredthebelgian About Vit A

Jofo, what would your opinion be on this Vitamin A supplement? http://www.nowfoods....00-Softgels.htm

 

I'm just about to start taking them, was wondering if I should be worried about anything?


Thanks a lot

 

That's the brand that I'm taking (except mine is 10,000 IU per pill), and it's also the exact supplement that FredTheBelgian said he has been using for a couple of years with no side effects. I emailed Now Foods and they said that it is 100% fish oil sourced Vitamin A, not synthetic. So I think it's a pretty safe bet as far as vitamin A supplements go, but if you have any reservations you can of course let me be the guinea pig here and see how my body responds to the supplement before trying it yourself.
