  1. Hi,

    I have a couple of red marks and an overall red flush on my face (as if I had a sunburn..you know what I'm talking about).

    Can neosporin help remove red marks AND the red flush? I've heard that it heals red marks really well, but I'd like to know if it helps with the overall complexion.

    If it did, how long did it take you for it to disappear? I hear 1-2months of neo (applied to entire face everyday) will do.

    Thanks :)

  2. I used to masterbate once a week. Got 3-4 cysts a week.

    So I just wanted to see if masterbation really had an effect on acne.

    It's been 2.5 weeks since I last did one, and I've only gotten 3 cysts so far. Although I still get whiteheads, they are not as terrible as red, painful cysts. I'm very happy with the result. That's almost one a week! (quite an improvement for me)

    It is clear (at least for me) masterbation aggravates acne. I think I'll wait until I get a wet dream (which is about 4-5 weeks of wait, but you know, a "wet dream" is actually quite good...-> virtual sex)

    I'll keep you posted in the coming weeks. Perhaps I can reduce it to less than 1 a month (in which case becoming clear is a matter of time).

    I'm 20 btw. Started to get acne at 16, got pretty bad by 18. I MAY be growing out of it, but who knows.

  3. My skin is just like yours. Little active acne but a great deal of red flushing. The redness is not really from an accumulation of red marks but from I-dont-know-what.

    It seems like flushing always comes with some acne, but not always (spotty acne is one).

    I'm looking for a good nighttime moisturizer that also helps with redness. Anyone?

  4. I tried Fruit of the Earth (FOTE) aloe vera gel for 3 weeks and all it did was leave a lot of whiteheads from clogged pores.

    It's hella drying too...If you are to use aloe, stay away from this brand

  5. I feel like whatever I do, get acne medications or eat a lot of junk food, I get the same amount of acne.

    It feels as if my body is strictly following an acne "quota"; it must fill that specific number of zits everyday no matter what happens...

    I'm never clear at any given time; although the number of zits has reduced over the last couple of months, there are always 2-3 new zits forming....argh

    What do you think? :think:

  6. I've been on facedoctor soap for 5 weeks now.

    Huge initial breakouts in week 1-2

    Mild improvement in week 3

    Breakouts again in week 4

    Improvement in week 5.

    I don't get as many inflammatory cysts anymore. Instead, all I get nowadays is 1 or 2 small whiteheads a day.

    I'm currently happy with the result, and hoping to see more improvements.

    I think it is working because unlike any other "cleanser" products, the soap is just plain simple (aka "Just soap and water"). It does not have harmful chemicals the cosmetic companies secretely put for hidden aggravation and profit.

    I think the soap works not because it kills demodex mites but it normalizes everything...other ppl without acne only use plain soap (and yet their skin is so clear!). I guess I'll try to adjust my skin to "normal" and see if my skin system gets back to normal immune level (ideas from "jan carlo").

    I'll try facedoctor until it runs out (perhaps another 6-8 weeks) and report back every two weeks.

  7. I've been using Facedoctor soap for a month now. I had really bad initial breakout in Week1 ~ 2. No visible improvements yet...

    It looks like instead of painful cysts, I get more whiteheads these days (I'd prefer whiteheads to cysts anyday).

    I'm gonna use it for another 2-3 months and see if there is any improvement.

    It is really drying, yeah. So use a moisturizer.

  8. I use Purpose Dual Treatment Moisture Lotion with SPF 15.

    It's absorbed quickly, non-comedogenic, non-shiny and has SPF 15.

    It doesn't break me out.

    I think this is a good mid-SPF level moisturizer.

    P.S. I'm still looking for a nighttime moisturzier (with vitamins, etc), since I don't really need the SPF 15.

  9. Hmm..I'm 2 weeks into 3 x 1000mg fish oil.

    At first, I thought it didn't to jack, but these days my face has become increasingly dry...even after 12 hours (i wash twice a day) my face is NOT oily. Btw, I don't moisturize (I know I should but I am testing fish oil out)

    It is either the current dry winter weather or this fish oil thing is working.

    If anyone's experiencing extremem dryness that goes on for 12 hours (without moisturizing), tell me. If not, I guess the fish oil is working.

  10. Facedoctor soap...it's been 2 weeks+ (started on 12/12)...got a massive initial breakout in the first week, consistent breakouts in the following week...

    It's becoming better, slightly less breakouts eachday, but definitely more than what i usually had.

    I hope it gets better. It looks like the soap will last another 2 months...i'll try it till march. If it doesn't get any better, i'll have to switch to another product.

    Fingers crossed...

  11. Hi, I am a newcomer here. I've been observing the message board for quite a while, but I haven't come across anything particularly effective.

    However, when I exercise (jog for 30min), I realized that my nose is the only part of my face that sweats (and it sweats a LOT).

    Here's what is interesting. The rest of my face is pink/red and acne-prone. Guess what? Even after 30-40min of jogging, mynose is the only place that sweats! And my nose is TOTALLY CLEAR (If u looked at my nose only, u wouldn't know i had acne!)

    Other parts of my face remain DEAD DRY. Can you imagine a "dry" face after working out continuously for 30-40min?

    So my point is, if your skin sweats, then it is a good sign (a sign of waste-excretion thru the skin), because the skin is the largest organ (that helps excrete toxic/bad stuff) in the body

    I am currently exercising 4 times a week, and I hope to keep up with my exercise/experiment and see if other parts of my face get better once I "revive" the "dead" sweat glands.

    I would like to know if any of you have similar experience or have any good idea why acne-prone skin does not sweat (how acne destroyes sweat glands).

    Thanks smile.gif
