  1. Read this: http://www.latimes.com/features/health/med...,4875078.column
  2. There are different types of blemishes of acne. Some people get zits, or pimples, or cysts. I was just wondering if each of these types of Acne come from different causes. I mostly get pimples that are deep under the skin. I wonder why some people get all zits, or all cysts, or a combo? For example, do cysts form from hormone related issues only? Do zits form from food related issues? Anyone have comments?
  3. This is the same type of acne I get. I have started putting tea tree oil on those spots. It seems to dry it up pretty fast. It takes a week for it to go down, but I think it works great.
  4. I wanted to share my experience with the product Neosporin. Whenever I get a blemish and its bad enough that it scabs, I apply Neosporin cream to it. It helps speed up the healing time that cuts and scabs usually take. I know it sounds strange, but the next time you pick your skin, or it is bad enough to where it scabs, try this stuff. I had a major pimple that eventually started scabbing, and it was fully healed in 5 days. Just apply it once or twice a day when it starts to scab, and watch it h
  5. I wish there was. I have tried many things like Omega 3, 6, and 9, and herbs. I don't think anything one thing work in particular. I now take a multivitamin, which has a little of everything. Don't waste your money on too much stuff. I spent hundreds of dollars on supplements and it was a waste. Lesson learned I guess.
  6. I'm 29, and have oily skin now. I don't get much acne, but I notice if I only masturbate once a week, my acne is pretty much non existent. I used to do it like 3-4 times a week and I would get acne all over. Its the same thing with sex. My last girlfriend and I used to have sex everyday, and I had mild acne, even on my back. I think my hormones need to be balanced, but how? How can a male balance his hormone level?
  7. In the past few weeks, I have conducted a little test on my face. I normally wash my face with cleanser once in the morning and once before I go to bed. I decided to not wash in the morning, and only at night. It seems that my skin is not as oily in the morning, so I stopped washing with my cleanser. I noticed that at night, my skin was the oiliest so it made sense to wash then. (Your skin may also be less oily in the morning as well.) I also stopped using a moisturizer altogether. From the firs
  8. Well, all I can say is let nature take its course with you. You are still at a young age where your body is still developing. Some people take a longer time than others. I do think you are taking and trying way too many things. Remember, everyone is different and there is no one just like you out there. What works for someone, may not work for you. My advice would be to not start trying everything you read or see. That will make things worse in my opinion. I'm not going to tell you what to take
  9. Well, I only get a pimple or two on my forehead. It's not like I have a huge breakout. Sometimes the blemish can get large, but then it will go away. It's strange because after I have around 2-3 pimples there, my forehead will be clear for a week or two. And then the cycle starts over. It's very mild acne, but annoying. I read that your forehead is related to your liver. Your liver filters out all toxins in your body, including extra hormones. Maybe I should try a liver flush and detox m
  10. Most of my skin is acne free, but my forehead still gets the brunt of it. Does anyone know if there is a direct correlation of acne and the forehead? Does anyone else just get spots there as well?
  11. I have oily skin, and I am clear most of the time. I believe you are washing too much. I used to wash my face twice daily, but now just at night. I actually saw a decrease in oil on my skin. Try cutting back to washing twice a day to see if it helps reduce some of the oil. It's possible to irritate the skin to the point where it can be more oily. Sometimes less is better.
  12. I have tried it before. I bought a couple tubes and it worked for about 4 hours on me. This was over 2 years ago, and I think my skin was much oilier than it is now. In fact, I still have some left. Maybe I'll try it again. It's just a temporary fix though. Plus, it's pricey. It's like all other products out there:a temporary solution.
  13. You can tell if you have an oily face or not. If you have oily skin, it feels very greasy. Plus, it makes your complexion look kind of dirty. If you look at your skin at an angle, you can see the amount of oil of your face. If you touch your face and you don't really get that greasy feeling, then you most likely don't have very much oil. You must test this at different parts of the day since your skin can change as the day goes on.
  14. Well, I think I jumped the gun here. It wasn't the soap that was making me more oily. It was actually the fact that I apply some kind of moisturizer after washing. This soap contains all natural stuff, and it works pretty good. I started leaving the moisturizer out after I wash and I noticed that my skin is less oily than when I used to use it. I've been monitoring my skin for the last week and noticed that my skin now starts to get oily about 5 hours after I wash. Before, it used to be around
