  1. Hey Jade I read the link you have referenced and I found it interesting. It’s funny, but as you run through the list of what you don’t eat, I found myself thinking: “What else is there?� but then as you go on to describe some of the things you can eat, it became clear that many substantial foods remain on your menu. One thing you’ve mentioned before - which made all your subsequent posts more interesting - was that High Fructose Corn Syrup causes cysts. I am cert
  2. http://www.brita.com/benefits/benefits.shtml Here is the link to the filter pictcher filter page. You will notice that - unlike the tap filter - the pitcher filter is not listed as removing any percentage of chlorine. This leads me to feel quite comfotable in saying: The Brita filter pitches do not remove the chlorine in your water. It appears only to reduce it an unknown amount. Which could be very little. However much chlorine is actually reduced, it is not impressive enough for Brita to be p
  3. http://www.brita.com/products/pitchers.shtml This is the link to the filter pitchers. The page seems to indicate that they remove chlorine's "Taste and Odor." I haven't given it a long look, but I don't yet see any assurance that chlorine is filtered out.
  4. It really does depend on where you live. The water where I live is so chlorinated that it smells like a swimming pool coming out of the tap. It is worth noting that none of the major brand water pitchers - Brita or PUR - removes chlorine. I don’t know if any of you has ever broken open an aging water pipe, but I can assure you that you wouldn’t drink out a cup that looked like such a pipe.
  5. Dude, you are not eating enough food. Nearly any dietary change that includes a dramatic reduction in total calories will improve acne in the short term, especially if it includes all natural foods. Funny thing, I have found that (for myself) any dietary change that includes eating dramatically more calories (especially if they are from whole/natural sources) will improve acne in the short term also. This is one of my personal peeves with the more radical acne diets. You will not stay on this di
  6. My method is simple - and be advised my razor does not “lift and cut� nor does it dispense any gooey stuff. I wash my face and then pat it dry. I start my wristwatch chronograph and continue with some or another task like making the bed, or getting dressed... or whatever. After 5 to 15 minutes have past I simply dry shave my face. Taking some time, rubbing the razor gently on my face and following the razor with the first finger (backside of finger) of whichever hand that is not hol
  7. My experience is similar, but for me things are at their worst during the fall and early winter. October through January. Sun definitely helps, but I don’t know if that is the issue with cool weather acne. I honestly think it is more of an irritation and exfoliation issue. It is, of course, more than just those two factors.
