  1. Great video! Your accent is fine, understood every word.
  2. Well, unless you don't want your skin underneath to heal, I'd leave it there. The skin under a day old scab will be much redder than what you're experiencing now. Let it drop of naturally having healed the wound. If your boyfriend would 'think of you differently' because of a scab, then honestly, he isn't worth the worry. As for the picture, it should have healed by then and you can just conceal it. Not quite sure if this is an announcement or feedback on the forum either.
  3. I did when I was on the regimen. Only 0.5% SA though. It's not recommended though!
  4. I have inflammatory bowel disease, not sure if my acne is related. Since my immune system is affected by it, you'd think so. It causes inflammation in my bowel, throat and mouth, so why not my face? Your threads are very matter of fact...
  5. I don't think the problem is always about what we DO eat, it's often what we don't. Deficiencies rather than intolerance's. Our bodies need specific nutrition to function and develop properly. I've always had conflicted opinions on this subject, but if you think about it, it all makes sense. Not just in the case of acne, but all diseases. If we don't give our bodies the tools to fight it, it's going to continue to manifest.
  6. Gave me it too. Well, definitely some form of dermatitis/eczema. I may have had more severe acne pre-regimen, but 2 years later I'm still left with dry itchy skin around my eyes and nose that I never had before. It works for many, but I think there should be a disclaimer out there for those with sensitive skin types. I mean, there's people on this forum that can put BP on with a trowel, but me, even a little made my skin hang off like I'd just poured sulfuric acid over my head. The Regimen
  7. Hey Dolan. I hope this works out for you because I too think I have a candida problem which is causing my IBS, skin problems (itchy, flaky skin and acne) and tonsil stones. Make sure to keep us updated!
  8. No scrubbing. Use a chemical exfoliant such as glycolic acid. Dan has his own AHA which is 10% or you can buy Alpha Hydrox which I was recently recommended. Started using it today!
  9. Awesome Well the best moisturisers I've ever got from boots are L'oreal Triple Active Day (dry/sensitive skin) and Vichy Aqualia (dry skin). The vichy one is very heavy but feels matte. The l'oreal one is not heavy at all. I generally stick to moisturisers aimed at dry skin even though i'm combo because nearly all oily/combination moisturisers are comedogenic and actually ones aimed at dry skins are usually non comedogenic! It's so dumb.... I personally loved the l'oreal one and the ingredi
  10. All sorted to purchase tomorrow! I can use my boots points for the glycerin too - I have so many. Would you recommend any moisturiser I could get from Boots too? I'm in need of a new one and I may as well use the full 1300 points I have, if I'm paying delivery for something so cheap. Using an AWFUL Simple moisturiser at the moment and my dry areas are flaky as hell. The one in my signature worked fantastically, but it's slightly heavy. Thanks again.
  11. well I'm glad I could be of some help I would steer faaaaar clear of the lotion and night cream because the ingredients are atrocious. Only the oil-free treatment, the soufflé and the regular enhanced cream have good ingredients. It is moisturising so you can use it as a night cream anyway The lotion has some of the most pore clogging ingredients known to man and the night cream is mineral oil based so will do little to help with the problems as the skin can't absorb it and may break you out.

  13. Stop doubting your knowledge! You've been very helpful because I had no idea that product existed. Definitely going to get myself some! Would you recommend the lotion, cream or replenishing night cream? I'm thinking the night cream since that's when I'll be likely to use it. My face is a mess at the moment, not in terms of acne, just the overall appearance. Hopefully this will help me get a bit of a glow back to my skin. Thanks! Lewis
  14. For your benefit, I am going to move this topic to the diet and holistic health forum.
  15. Off-topic (loved your video btw), but I noticed that you know a lot of good alternatives for expensive products - like you, I'm a student/peasant at the moment! At the moment I'm suffering from blotchy dry areas on my skin (under my eyes and around the nose) which started after I stopped using acne.org's AHA, so I'm thinking I'm in need of some exfoliation. Are there any alternative (possibly a little more soothing) products similar to acne.org's glycolic or Paula's Choice BHA/AHA gels that yo
