English, Anyone?

This is my name

544 views

I've been poking around this website for a short while now and I often gravitate towards the product reviews to see what may help skin. However, there is a huge nuisance I find when searching for information: peoples' inability to write or spell correctly. I tried to shrug it off as I am sure there are many younger people here, but I think by the time you're 15 you should know the difference between "there", "their", and "they're".

How are we supposed to take these reviews seriously when you can't even comprehend half of them? I am at the point in my life where I cannot tolerate "your" instead of "you're" or any similar mistake. This is why all authoritative text in America must be written at a third-grade level. We do not stress proper English and so we see these problems perpetuated through generations. I am just sort of rambling here but I felt like saying something.

My point is basically that I'm trying to find information to help myself here, but I cannot take it seriously when I read things that are written so terribly.

Woah! You sound like my mother. She was an English major in college. She later went on to complete a master's degree in educational psychology. As for myself, I hold a bachelor of arts in history and a juris doctor. We constantly correct each other's grammar at home. That said, in the most proper English I can muster, I will now give you the advice that will change you forever.

My regimen is:

Step A. Wash face with dial antibacterial soap. Dry face with soft clean towel.

Step B. Apply pea size amounts of topical clindamycin and topical tretinoin. Wait three hours.

Step C. Wash face with dial antibacterial soap. Pat face with dry clean towel.

Step.D Apply Benzaclin. Wait three hours.Wash face with antibacterial soap or purpose gentle face cleanser,

Step E. Re-apply pea size amount of topical clindamycin and topical tretinoin. Wait three and half hours. Wash face with purpose gentle face cleanser.

Step F. Re-apply benzaclin. Wait three hours. Wash face with gentle purpose cleanser.

Step G.Re-apply topical clindamycin and sleep. Good night!

Antibiotics

6:00AM take 1,000mg of cephalexin

12:30pm take 1,000mg of cephalexin.

*Note-to get this regimen you must request all of these medications from your dermatologist. He or she will never offer them all to you. I requested all the drugs that I have encountered over the years and have current prescriptions for every one of them. My cystic scarring acne is GONE! I attribute my success to my tenacity and to my ingenious dermatologist. She increases my doses of anti-biotics upon request until I have truly healthy skin. Try it for six weeks and tell me how it went. I dare you..better yet..I double dog dare you!

haha thanks... i didn't mean to sound like a grammar nazi or anything but i had to say something after reading so many ridiculously written reviews. also i am guilty myself as i write in lower case unless i'm typing something "official".

thanks for sharing your routine with me. although i must say that it is kind of strange to me... i don't think i've ever heard of anyone washing their face with Dial antibacterial soap. what kind of tretinoin do you use? i have RetinA but use it at night, also i think i may use too much of it when i do. i used to take antibiotics but i stopped doing that. right now i-

wash face with Cerave moisturizing cleanser (sometimes in morning, i usually wait until i shower)

i haven't been applying moisturizer as i have really oily skin and it usually shows as the day progresses. if i moisturize then my face is greasy all day.

wash face with Cerave before bed.

put RetinA on and go to sleep.

this is what my dermatologist told me to do and it doesn't really work. i have been trying various other things, for instance i just washed my face with honey yesterday for the first time. i think it worked alright... nothing really has helped clear my acne. i just now got some vitamin A so hopefully that will help and won't be toxic for me.
