  1. http://drhauschka.com/ It's quite expensive but natural. I haven't used it, just bringing it to your attention.
  2. i know man. i use to use those chemical filled products but i stopped because it didn't help my skin after the first few weeks. it just dried out my skin and caused more pimples. when i first got acne i thought chemicals were the answer but truth is they aren't. i only wash with water. the only chemicals i use are the ones in my moisturizer. anyone know of a natural moisturizer?
  3. I have used a couple of moisturizers and i was thinking about stopping. I'm not sure that my skin is really liking the chemicals in all those moisturizers, maybe I should switch to a good natural moisturizer? I don't even wash my face with chemicals so maybe I shouldn't even wash my face at all allowing my skin to keep those natural body oils which allows my face to be moisturized naturally? Anyone else kinda afraid of those chemicals and what they do to your skin?
  4. Can you share with us what you've been eating? I just try to avoid high GI foods and it does seem to help my acne. Are you still in your teen years? That might make a difference?
  5. I haven't had a glass of milk for about 6 months and I do kinda miss it. I couldn't resist I had to drink a glass (about 7 oz worth). I purchased the milk from Trader Joe's. I'm also surprised to see how much natural sugar that stuff has...I never noticed that before. That question is, will I regret?
  6. Because your not sure if it's actually helping your acne...?
  7. I'm not going to touch the antibiotics. I think I'm going to purchase CeraVe Moisturizing Lotion and hopefully that should help my redness. On the other note, does anyone know when I should me moisturizing? I thinking at night after I wash my face with water.
  8. Antibiotics are for the people with severe not someone with dry skin like me...? Do you have skin like mine is that why your suggesting antibiotics?
  9. Bro - I use to use CVS products too. I remember running out to the drug store and purchasing acne products right when I got my first breakout. I didn't know what acne was until I saw pimples and whiteheads appear on my face. What did I do? I just did what I was taught to do. I remember seeing those commercials, you know those ProActiv infomercials, that guarantee you'll be clear if you purchase their "magical" products. So I fell into the trap of purchasing Cetaphil, St. Ives Blackhead and Blemi
  10. When I do use a moisturizer I'll use one every other night at the most. This is what I have been using recently. I try to avoid the ones filled with chemicals. I did use a light cleanser but I threw it all out. I really didn't see how those products helped my skin. It just stripped away all the natural oils on my skin. I do not pop anything I let it heal on its own! So should I be moisturizing every night even if it makes my skin feels weird/greasy? I think benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid
  11. I just turned 18 years old and I have had acne for about 1 and 1/2 years now. When I first got acne I rushed to the drug store and purchased a cleanser and facial scrub. I used those products for about 6 months and they didn't help at all. I stopped using products all together and decided to wash with just water. I don't pop any pimples I let them heal on their own. Now the only products I put on my face is shaving cream. I have been doing this for about 6 months now. Please look at the pict
  12. Here is another picture that shows it the scar under direct darkish lighting. Please tell me what you think!!! Don't leave without leaving a reply. Thanks
  13. Nope back when I had braces I was running in my dark hallway and fell and one of the braces went through my lip. Now two years later the scar is still there. I don't think injections would remove something like this because there is extra skin on top of the lip. Hopefully it doesnt look like herpes?
  14. Just thought I would give everyone an update. I called the number listed above and the lady told me to look on there website. She kept insisting that "growth hormones" would be listed under the ingredients. I'll have to call back again and maybe I'll speak to someone that knows what they are talking about.
  15. I don't think that will work. Hopefully it isn't that bad?
  16. I have had this scar on my lip for 2 yrs and it doesn't (and will not) heal on its own. I fell when I had braces and extra tissue formed on top of the injury. Does it look like I have some herpes? It's a huge confidence killer and I don't know what to do. Should I consult with a dermatologist? It will definitely require surgery to take off some of the extra tissue. What should I do?
  17. Just called that number and it seems to be a legitimate working number. I will call tomorrow when they are open. I'll update everybody when I get an answer.
  18. I have been eating Subway salads 2-3 per day with oven roast chicken on the top and I was wondering if the meat is safe to consume? Do you think Subway adds growth hormones into the meat? I was going to call Subway support but I couldn't locate a phone number. If anybody could enlighten me that'd be great!
  19. I was in Walgreens looking for a good facial moisturizer. I tend to avoid the products full of chemicals so this caught my eye: http://www.walgreens...5829127-product Has anyone used Skil Oil as a moisturizer? I just wash my face with water, nothing else. Currently in the need of a good natural moisturizer.
  20. Dried fruit is just sugar…no vitamins...just sugar. I think your better off with eating fresh fruit.
  21. That's one hard diet to follow, I give you tons of credit for your mental toughness. I woke up today and didn't make eggs I just grabbed two apples and two bottles of water and headed to school. It was so hard making it through the day without my usual breakfast. I had my first meal at 3:30 PM. I stopped by Subway and grabbed a salad (picture below). Thats pretty awesome that nuts don't effect your acne? For most people it seems like they do. I agree with you that I shouldn't be eating all those
