  1. All right, that sounds awesome. I read up on AHA before posting and lots of sites said it does that, so it's good to get an actual review confirming that. Just one more question to make sure we're perfectly clear (... heh, pun). You use BP, moisturizer mixed with, I'm assuming, 6 drops of jojoba oil per pump of moisturizer, and then AHA on top of all of that after it's all dried up? Thanks for all the help. I use BP, wait 10 minutes, moisturize, wait 10 minutes, then AHA. I used the j

  3. Yeah, I watched those videos. I just wanted to make sure that's how people liked to use it. I don't like caking my face with a ton of things, so I wasn't sure if people thought BP, then moisturizer, then AHA would be too much. Has anyone tried using AHA on its own? This helps, so thanks.
  4. I've been using BP for over two years now. Dryness was always a problem, it's just now I'm mostly cleared up, so I'm focusing more on the quality of my skin rather than acne. And yeah, I've been a customer here for a while (ever since my join date) so I know where everything is. Thanks for the input, but my question remains, how do you integrate AHA into the regimen? Just put it on top of everything, use it on its own, or what?
  5. My problem is skin dryness right now. When I get out of the shower, I can feel my skin starting to flake right away and I can't move my face or my skin would crack. Right now I'm using the Acne.org BP, cleanser and moisturizer for the regimen. I've done a few searches, and people have suggested both AHA and jojoba oil. However, in some cases jojoba oil hasn't helped, so I'm thinking of getting the AHA in addition to the jojoba oil. My main question is how to integrate AHA into the current reg
  6. Hmm, interesting, I'll keep that in mind. Although when my skin dries out a little bit, I see a lot more oil on it then if it was at a normal state. Which is why I drew that conclusion. I believe a "my bad" is appropriate here.
  7. Laser hair removal doesn't remove the actual hair pore. It just 'damages' the hair at its root, so it doesn't grow anymore. Since the hair pore is still there, oil can still seep through it, and just like any other pore, it can get clogged. If laser hair removal removed the actual pore itself, that'd lead to all kinds of problems... and probably only one positive outcome: no acne in that area.
  8. From your story, I can tell you have really dry skin (captain obvious, reporting for duty), and as a result your body produces excess oil to counteract the dryness. This is all good until you get a clogged pore and that excess oil has no way out, thus turning into acne. I don't exactly know what your acne actually looks like, other than the fact that you're unhappy with it. So all I can tell you is that you need to counteract the dryness yourself, or somehow unclog those pores. Since the creams
  9. Is this as bad as it gets? If so, it's nothing to worry about; with proper lighting and angles, I only saw something because I was looking for it. If you're adamant on fixing it though, it's a very very very mild case of acne, so just make sure you're washing two times a day with an appropriate cleanser. If that doesn't help after several weeks, you could try some low % BP. Is your skin oily, or dry? Again, I wouldn't worry about this unless it starts to get worse.
  10. The sun acts as a catalyst to acne. If you're not acne prone, constant exposure to the sun will just get you tanned (and raise your chance of getting skin cancer). However, if your skin is known to have acne, then the sun will aggravate it, and make it worse. Depending on your skin tone, a higher SPF may be needed. Furthermore if you truly spend a lot of time in the sun, SPF 30 is the minimum I'd get. I use SPF 55, personally, but my skin is naturally pale, and I tan really easily. In any case
  11. So let me start from the beginning. Last summer is when my acne first started; my face was literally filled with papules and pustules after the first month. I worked my way up to Benzac AC 10% and oral antibiotics, and used them for about 5 months. Finally, around new year's time, my face was decent. Although my face was never completely clear, I still was happy enough with it. At the beginning of this summer, I went out in the sun for one day, and my face was ALMOST clear the next day. It look
