  1. I've been reading about comedogenic ingredients in skincare products and I'm shocked by how many ingredients I've been finding in most of the items I use daily. I'm going to try to switch to a makeup/skincare routine that has the fewest comedogenic ingredients I can possibly find in the drugstore and see how my skin fares. I've checked all the ingredients of the following products against this list: (http://www.zerozits.com/Articles/acnedetect.htm). Here is what I'm going to test out: Cover
  2. I've been using a microfiber cloth 1 or 2 times a week for about a month, I like the results but I haven't noticed any real differences in my skin. Today I was reading some articles online about microfiber cloths used for skin care and in several different places read something along the lines of this: "Microfiber is extremely fine—thinner than a human hair, but much stronger. Because of the wedge shape of the fiber, as opposed to the normal rounded shape of most fiber structures, it covers
  3. I originally posted this in the Non-inflammatory acne board but I haven't gotten any responses so I'm reposting here. Technically my post does involve the regimen, bc my second question involves my decision to purchase Dan's AHA+! When you try a new product or regimen and you break out, how do you know if the product is clogging or irritating your skin and making you break out, or if it's actually helping and causing your pores to "purge"? My skin doesn't usually break out in papules or pustul
  4. When you try a new product or regimen and you break out, how do you know if the product is clogging or irritating your skin and making you break out, or if it's actually helping and causing your pores to "purge"? My skin doesn't usually break out in papules or pustules, but sometimes when I try a new product I'll break out and don't know whether to stop my new regimen or to wait it out in hopes that it is clearing out my pores. How do you guys tell? Is there any difference in the kinds of pim
  5. Purpose cleanser is the best I've ever used. I love the smell (very mild and clean), it removes all my makeup (the only time I need to use makeup remover is when I wear eyeliner), and it never leaves my skin feeling dry, just clean and soft. However, I think that after I run out of my first bottle I'm going to give Johnson & Johnson Baby Wash a try, because it's made by the same company as the Purpose wash, has a similar formula, and smells suspiciously identical, haha. I've already bough
  6. Daisydukes, Thanks for your advice. Part of me really wants to give AHA+'s a try, or other topical treatments like Retin-A, but my skin is really really sensitive whenever I leave stuff on it for longer than the time it takes to exfoliate/wash. Even some normal facial lotions will cause me to break out in a rash. Surprisingly, however, the ACV doesn't even sting and I'm using it almost at full strength. I went and bought supplies yesterday for the following regimen: Morning: Purpose
  7. Hello ladies and gents, I've been dealing with acne for maybe 6 or 7 years now, and though I've never been to a derm I've tried my fair share of remedies, none with much success. A brief list of what I've tried, not in any particular order: Proactive, BP, Biore pore strips, toners, Neosporin, aloe vera, Queen Helene's Julep Masque, lots of different moisturizers, etc etc. I would say that my facial acne is 90% noninflamed. I very rarely get pustules or cysts unless I'm PMSing. Otherwise, mo
