  1. I wouldn't be surprised if they already have a cure for acne that they just haven't released to the public. Once an AIDS cure is produced (if it already hasn't been), it will never be used, because lifetime treatments will always be more profitable than cures.
  2. Yeah, I've been using the oatmeal, and that's also working great!
  3. I was just about to post on this thread again about ACV. It works amazingly! I've been using 50/50 ACV/Water as a toner twice a day, and in about a week I've seen the most improvement I've ever had. It has reduced the size of my pores, made my face less oily, made the redness disappear from my cheeks, stopped about 90% of new breakouts (including all cysts), and lightened my PIH. Using this along with calamine lotion has worked better than anything I've ever used, including BP, and without exces
  4. I switched from using store brand ACV to Bragg's organic ACV, and I already see a difference in two days. It's less harsh and seems to work better.
  5. I used the Purpose gentle cleanser. I tried lightly rubbing the calamine lotion in after applying it and in the morning it came off much easier.
  6. I washed my face twice and the calamine lotion didn't come off completely.
  7. The calamine lotion is a great spot treatment, but it won't come off when I wash my face in the morning. How do you remove the calamine lotion in the morning?
  8. I'm worried about reducing the amount of BP I'm using because it's the only thing that's ever worked for me.
  9. Thanks so much, it worked great. I wish I had time in the morning so I could use the oatmeal twice a day!
  10. Maybe you are using too much moisturizer (if you are using it)? Too much moisturizer can make your skin look greasy, as opposed to your face producing more oil. Also, in before Bryan tells Gutterflower that's a myth.
  11. AHA (alpha hydroxy acid) is usually Glycolic Acid, while salicylic acid is a BHA (beta hydroxy acid). I've just recently started cleansing my face using oatmeal, and it really reduces inflammation and redness and soothes the skin. You may want to give that a try. It was recommended in this thread: http://www.acne.org/messageboard/IM-ACNE-F...amp;pid=3149599 You should probably stop using BP or decrease the amount you are using if it is having so many side effects on your face. If you want an
  12. By the way, do you wet your face before rubbing the oatmeal on?
  13. I would not use it at the same time. One in the morning and one in the evening. I just used the clear skin hydrator for the first time today, and so far, it's been great. It may not be moisturizing enough for some, but it absorbs quickly and actually mattified (I don't think that's a word) my oily areas. Hopefully it fades my PIH but only time will tell.
  14. No, it was an oral steroid, and I had been 99% clear with only a few pustules here and there, not even using any topicals, just washing, for about 4 months. About 2 days after I had finished taking the Prednisone, about 4 cysts appeared on my forehead. I had never had cystic acne before, and am still somewhat struggling with it now. Now my acne might just be hormonal, but ever since that initial breakout, I haven't been clear.
  15. I stopped putting BP on it, and this morning used Paula's Choice Clear Skin Hydrator on my whole face and the rash has already gone down significantly.
