  1. Well i'm no skin expert or anything but surely we have sebaceous glands for a reason..your skin would totally dry out and therefore surely age i.e. go wrinkly quicker if you couldn't produce any sebum....
  2. Is that exfoliator available in shops? Thanks for advice by the way. As for the Minocycline...I've only taken 3 tablets so far so i doubt it's kicked in yet...my face is really spotty anyway though!

But the thing is, from what I've read on the internet a) you should be gentle with your face if you've got acne and not 'scrub' it and b) hot water makes things worse. But I could be wrong. I just wanted to ask other peoples
  7. I had the exact same experience. I was prescribed Zineryt at the end of 2003 and within about a week, my skin had cleared up almost completely...all my friends kept complimenting me on it and I felt great! But within a year, the spots had started coming back. At first it was just one every now and again, but then they ended up exactly the same as before, despite me still applying the same amount. So I stopped applying it as I didn't see the point and didn't use it for about 4 or 5 months. I bega
