  1. The way this product worked best for me was putting it on at night, letting it dry and going to bed with it still on. About an hour or so before I actually go to bed, I put a steamy washcloth on my face. Then I wash with liquid cetaphil and very warm water. Pat dry. Then apply the mask only to the parts of my face that are bad, namely chin and parts of forehead. Then I do whatever for an hour and go to bed. In the morning my face feels kinda dry and the mask has got all crackly and some or most
  2. OK, so I've been on the regimen for about 4 months with pretty ok success, I've noticed a drop in the big red irritated pimples (though I still do get them every few days, don't think I'll ever completely get rid of them.). Anyway I've had these little skin colored bumps on my chin for about 2 yrs now. It may have something to do with the fact that I'm on a progestine based birth control (depo provera). I'm not sure. Anyway, I've tried EVERYTHING to get rid of these buggers, and nothing's worked

  4. Listen guys, I'm going to post a new string on this because I think it's really good news for those of us who suffer with closed comedoes.

  5. Oh, I totally forgot about a cleanser I used to use ... the burts bee's post reminded me. I used to use burts bees orange cleanser (I think this is what it's called) it comes in a metallic tube and can be pricey $9-$10 a tube. I found it to be very soft on the ole skin and seemed to restore moisture too. Smells GREAT! I loved it, but I stopped buying it because it was too expensive. Cetaphil (or national brand) is good too, does about the same thing.
  6. I used to get blackheads on the borders of my lips. Man, it was annoying and very painful to squeeze them out, which I probably shouldn't have been doing! Using BP has helped cut down on the number of these I have. It makes sense that it would be caused by toothpaste, I will look out for tarter control in the future. Good luck controlling them!
  7. Ooops, I'm sorry, it says you are considering accutane, not that you're already on it. Listen man, don't get on accutane utill you have thoroughly researched it! It is a serious drug that can have very serious side effects and a lot of times doctors won't take the time to tell you about them. My brother was on it for only a year and ten years later he is still dealing with the psycho-biological effects. Please give it serious thought, accutane can be worse than the acne itself.
  8. For God's sake, don't quit your job! If you're on accutane, your acne must be pretty serious. Keep on the regimen, maybe coming off of it was a bad idea? Give the regimen at least a month and if you still see no improvement, go to your dermatologist and see whats up. Don't panic, if the regimen worked for you once, it should work again.
  9. Naw, I know it isn't herpes. I've had a cold sore on my lip a long time ago and I remember exactly what if felt like. This is so tiny you can hardly see it, but I can feel it with my tongue. It is painless. Hopefully it will just go away. I just hope it isn't a wart or something viral. Yuck! I use a really good lip balm (called me me me, awsome stuff) maybe if I use it more regularly it will go away. I will keep yall posted. Thanks for the suggestions.
  10. Hey, sorry this question is not (I think) acne related, but it is skin related. So I noticed this weird little bump thing on my lip a few days ago. It is skin colored (i.e. the same color of my lip) and pretty small. I'm wondering if it is natural, or a skin tag or a wart or what? It doesn't look like warts I have had on my feet/hand, it's kinda flat and came on pretty fast. Any idears? If it doesn't clear up in a few weeks or if it gets bigger I'm going to have it checked out.
  11. I agree. I have used cetaphil in the past when my acne was not as bad as it is now, and at that time, I felt the cetaphil actually kept me from breaking out without using BP. I haven't used it in awhile, I switched to salcylic acid for awhile after my acne got worse, but it irritated my skin and caused more breakouts. Now I'm using a cleanser w/ 3.5 BP. It has cleared up my skin quite a bit, but at this point I need see more results so I am going to quit using it when it runs out and go back to
  12. Hey. Listen, your makeup could be causing a problem. What brand do you use and what kind? Are you using coverstick or foundation or both? I am a girl 22 and have not had terrible acne, but enough so that I am on here trying to rid myself of these stupid blackheads and comedones. I have found that for myself that reducing the amount and the frequency of using foundation (i.e. the all-over stuff) and just sticking to using a good coverstick most of the time is better. I have a lot less breakouts.
  13. Ok, so I just found some websites that have some products that were described in the prevention article. Turns out this stuff expensive and some of it is doctor prescribed. I have seen between $16-$50 and one of the sites came with this disclaimer: *Acne sufferers please note It takes approximately 3 weeks for a clogged pore in your skin to actually become a pimple/whitehead... and make its way up to your face. When you start using these glycolic acid products you need to remember to give your
  14. Anyone tried glycolic acid for closed comedones? Here's what an article from Prevention magazine says about glycolic acid and clogged pores: "To loosen and remove the plugs of oil and skin cells that are clogging your pores, you need glycolic acid. It works by activating certain skin enzymes that desolve the plugs beneath the skin's sruface, which opens up the pores to allow the mixture to escape. Some popular brands include Gly Derm, Cellex C, Total Skin Care, and Pysicians Elite. Make sure
  15. Has anyone out there used Retin A for comedones/microcomedones? You know, the little flesh colored bumps that tend to appear in clusters in one area of the face? I have heard that Retin A can be good for these. I am already using BP which has worked well in stopping most breakouts of other kinds, but hasn't done a whole lot for these little annoying bumps. I have A LOT of them on my chin and I really would like to get rid of them. Does anyone know if it is safe to use Retin A with BP? Is Retin A
