  1. I'm due to see a dermatologist next week for my crazily oily skin. I want him to prescribe low dose roaccutane for me and I was thinking of 5mg or 10mg per day. If he doesn't help me I will look to buy from an internet pharmacy (I know, I know). I will start off with 5mg a day. I'm 38 fwiw. Please keep us updated on how you are doing.
  2. I've never tried it so this is no recommendation but have you looked into Ifrenel?
  3. Interesting discussion. Why did this thread die off so suddenly? P.S ndnRomeo - if you are reading this - your inbox is full! Cant send you a PM.
  4. Started drinking 2-3 cups of spearmint tea 5 days a week last Friday 24/10/10. Will update again in a couple of weeks.
  5. 37yo male. Acne/oily skin for 20 years. Tried drinking peppermint tea 3 times daily for 4 weeks. No reduction in sebum production at all unfortunately. Have ordered spearmint tea from ebay. Will repeat for 4 weeks with spearmint tea and update then.
  6. Do you use the juice from a freshly squeezed lemon? Do you dilute it before applying to your face or do you put the lemon juice on neat? How long do you leave it on for? thanks.
  7. I disagree with Greentiger about the lavender and peppermint. Lavender is known for it's soothing properties as well as it's anti-bacterial ones. Lavender is one of the few essential oils that you can apply neat onto the skin. I did so yesterday and encountered no irritation at all. Diluted down to 5% for example should absolutely be fine. Lavender is widely used in skin and hair care: google the range from Dr.Organics to see an example. I've used 50% peppermint oil as a spot treatment wit
  8. Wikipedia says there is a topical version of Oxybutynin called Gelnique. This however, is for women with over-active bladder disorder (wtf?) Anyone crazy enough to use Gelnique to see if it reduces sebum?
  9. That's a helluva reduction in sebum production from such a low dose. What brand are you using and are you using any other supplements or anything that might be responsible for the cut back in oil?
  10. 1gram isn't enough if you aren't using the other supplements I posted about as well. I beleive you'd need to take 5g or more to see any results just using B5 alone. If you increase the B5, do it gradually otherwise you'll be spending all day on the toilet.
  11. If you try B5 you may want to add L-Cysteine and L-Carnitine. http://hubpages.com/hub/Acne-Cure-Guarantee http://www.zimbio.com/Acne+vulgaris/articl...Acne+Dr+Jeffrey http://anabolicminds.com/forum/supplement-...amin-b-5-a.html If you do try this: please, please post back how you get on, ok?
  12. If you are in the UK then Boots do a 20% Tea Tree Blemish gel which I've used and was very effective. Holland & Barrett do a 15% TTO lotion although this is not specifically for acne. You could try making your own gel with aloe vera gel I guess if you can't find similar products where you live.
