    Hiking, Biking, Fishing, Chess, and Blogging. Not in that order.. but pretty close. I think I like blogging more than chess, it just depends what mood I'm in.

    In my free time I write about acne over at my blog and I encourage my readers to BE self sufficient with there skin care. That means taking full responsibility, all the while clearing your skin, all at once.

    It's skin care without excuses.
  1. Look at that thing. good work on that.. I'd be too scared to go near it though
  2. Just Lurking About The Forums To See Whos Acne I Can Help Cure Today.

  3. I don't think its that specific chemical breaking you out. Here's the most detailed description I've found online about it. I've only heard great reviews about it so far... (which doesn't mean much).. Im thinking your skin could be imbalanced by that extra 0.1% dose.. However, I can't really say given the information available. I hope this helps a little. To answer your question - no, trentinoin isn't known to cause breakouts. It's actually known to be very effective at repairin
  4. Encouraging?.. You be the judge.. Confidence is a child influence under the parent term ego. It is subject to change entirely by the information your brain processes take in... consider this for moment... If everyone you met... including your friends.. strangers on the street.. your cousins.. or your grandmother.. all had the exact same case of acne would your confidence be shot? Nope.. not at all. But thats not how reality is, is it? Dont worry about reality.. and how
  5. It Look like Keloid Acne Scars.. or maybe it;s more cystic. It's hard to tell from those photos. Are you only getting them on your shoulder? It might even be an allergic reaction if it's spreading... Definately see a doctor
  6. No, I've given up on that dream. It isn;t that you acne is too terrible, it's just the basic principle of "if you stop taking care of something and disregard it - it gets worse" Sometimes alot worse. Look, i've excepted that im different than most people and my body has special needs. It was hard, and tough to swallow, but I manned up and accepted it. Just like someone who diabetic and NEEDS insulin daily.. My Acne was the same. Unless I had an outside source to maintain it (whatever it ma
  7. Great Post, Veteran. Im glad you decided to come out and voice yourself. Good job. I understand where you come from completely. I can't put into the words the frustration of banging your head into a cement wall for years. There's no words demoralizing enough to describe that feeling. Anyway, keep the post coming. The best thing about trying to inspire others is that.... for some reason, you end up inspiring yourself more than you ever thought you could. I wish the best for yo
  8. This is great. I honestly hope this all works out for you. As for the treatment, it seems like you going to have to become half-vampire to live with it.. but if it works, it's worth it. Actually the Levulan treatment is something only read about once (on a different forum) some months ago. Ill try and pull up the link for you so you can share your thoughts on it. Btw. Out of curiousity, how intense would you say the burning is?
  9. I manage my acne through A diet I corrected with trial and error. After I started digesting everything I can about essential oils, I started to learn about tracking methods. I tweaked my skin care method based on the results I saw. And anyone can do that, they just need to go out and try different things. It would be outright redundant for me to give you exactly what im doing now! Just because my regiment is tailored to me only.. and will not work (with the same effectiveness) for someone
  10. “Acne Home Remedies For Fair Skin” Top 5 *Moderator edit - URL removed - Read the board rules!* 1) Mixing Baking Soda W/ Water. The most generic, though effective of acne home remedies. The baking soda uses an all-natural alcohol free method of drying up the excess sebum under the skin. Mix a cup of baking soda with a little water until it becomes a paste, apply to the infected spot (not the whole face). Leave on for 15 minutes and gently wipe off. Feel fabulous. 2) Get Smelly, Mush
  11. *Moderator edit - URL removed - Read the board rules!* Actually, I did pay those little swindlers. More than a dime. If I could recount the amount I payed them It would probably add up to somewhere about 6,500 dimes. Or in US currency $650 bucks. And that’s a rough recount from the two years I actually tried to “get rid” of my acne and not just “reduce the swelling of my pimples”. But that’s another story. The real way I got rid of my acne was easy, simple, and not complicated at all.
  12. *Moderator edit- URL removed. Read the board rules!* The sole purpose of this post is to give you an idea about what type of ingredients are thrown into your acne creams that can definitely make your skin worse!. It’s an attempt to inform the naive, and encourage the few to take greater responsibility in their life, especially their skin care efforts. Knowing me, you might find the information in here-in has a slight “bias” feel to it, but I assure you, in the process of researching and ba
  13. You make valid points, but I think the reason why some of us get acne in westernized nations is because of not being properly breast fed. Have you treated/cured your acne btw? Cured? Nope, not yet. Im just maintaining clear skin. I know if I stopped my maintenance, then my pimples and zits will come back. Fast. And you also make a very valid point that I haven't even thought of. thanks for that. This is why I love discussing the subject. On that note, i'd like to say that I was in fac
  14. Agree on everything here. Better play it safe than sorry. I didn't have this type of inflammation so Im not liable to reccomend anything for it, legally. No worries though, it doesn't look to be anything a skin-doc visit wouldn;t wash away.
  15. Hey, im happy for you man. I know what acne does to a social life.. It hurts just to think of those days Glad you posted this. I've been throughtthe same thing in terms of trying different things. I think the fact that you we're actually brave enough to invest in different brands was your most attributing factor above all else. As it we're for me. Stick to it and do whatever you can to bring your results closer. Heres something I would ask myself when I got stuck that helped alo
