  1. I've just found this topic... interesting. I did not know that Liz Hurley had acne. Cold Showers are the secret behind Elizabeth Hurley’s sexy skin! She may hate them, but British beauty Elizabeth Hurley has revealed that nothing works wonders for her skin better than a good cold shower. The former Estee Lauder model, who even at the age of 41 has managed to maintain her stunning looks, said that though cold showers were ‘hideous’, they still remained the perfect way to i
  2. Wait a minute! Do you really think that acne is the disease of WESTERN civilization???? Arn't we too confident in ourselves? Did L Cordain introduced this term with his paper? Cordain L, Lindeberg S, Hurtado M, Hill K, Eaton SB, Brand-Miller J. Acne vulgaris: a disease of Western civilization. Arch Dermatol. 2002 Dec;138(12):1584-90. What about this> The history of acne reaches back to the dawn of recorded history. In Anceint Egypt, it is recorded that several pharaohs were acne sufferers.
  3. You are crazy if you don't try it. Cold shower is beautiful! And of course, you can google around and will find lots of interesting articles, like this: 100-year-old: Try cold showers for long life http://www.cnn.com/2005/HEALTH/11/15/living.well/ About cold shower therapy: http://www.earthclinic.com/Remedies/showers.html Good luck!
  4. Let's assume guys that everyday warm bath can damage your skin! Tell me, please the first civilization that used warm water for bathing! Was it the Roman? If the answer is yes, then why is it that they finished their bath in cold water, and there was no way to leave the bath only through the frigidarium. Were they CRAZY? They created public baths everywhere, was it just for fun? So if the above mentioned hypothesis is true we are all very poor stupid assholes.
  5. After many years of research I do believe that bathing in warm water is probably the main cause of acne. Although, of course it is true that acne is a mulifactorial disease, but hot water is one the most important factors. Our civilization is almost perfect in many ways, but we pay very little attention to proper bathing. Probably 1-2 minutes of cold shower switches of the otherwise prolonged effect of warm water, and that is why the old Romans used their "frigidarium" in their bath. http://s
  6. Since it is well known that cold shower is very healthy not even for your skin, it would be really interesting to see how you bathe. If you have severe acne, please send a post as well Thanks It is worth reading how the romans did it. They used different temperatures, and ALWAYS finished in cold water. Why? When you do sauna, you do the same. Both methods are quite old... and healthy??? Bathing: After exercise, bathers would have the dirt and oil scraped from their bodies with a curved metal
  7. You are absolutely right! I have no problems with our civilisation, but it is really worth going somewhere just to see and feel the difference. I do not believe that it is just because of stress or other psychological factors. It is by the way well accepted that acne is a typical disease of our civilisation, and we do something wrong.
  8. Look, we react to environmental changes in a different way. And it is true that the ancestors of acne sufferers had no acne! Have you ever tried being away from civilisation for at least 2 weeks? Then it is worth trying!
  9. Do not worry so much! Acne, depression, anxiety and other psychological disorders know each other very well. What you described, it seems like a slight bipolar disease. But do not worry about it, it is very typical for an acne patient. Regular excercise is the only cure for mood swinging and sleep problems. Do not take anything!
