  1. i second the microdermabrasion. didnt do a thing for me but waste my money.
  2. i have used cider vinegar and water in a 75 vinegar/25 water ratio for years now. works a treat. the only cleanser that didnt dry my skin. any extra oily areas ie my t zone, i swipe with cider vinegar neat after the general wash and all is well. try that perhaps.
  3. your acne doesnt look that bad at all looks like you have a mild case to me. a mixture of non-inflamed and inflamed types. if youre incredible oily on your face, is it wise to be using moisturizer? i found what has helped my oily skin and nasty complexion is a healthy diet and cutting out all teh usual nasties like wheat/gluten products, trans fats, dairy food etc. also, to wash my face i use a 50/50 cider vinegar and water mix, sprayed on with an atomiser and wiped off with clean tissue pape
  4. The bone-thinning condition called osteoporosis can lead to small and not-so-small fractures. Although many people think of calcium in the diet as good protection for their bones, this is not at all the whole story. In fact, in a 12-year Harvard study of 78,000 women, those who drank milk three times a day actually broke more bones than women who rarely drank milk.1 Similarly, a 1994 study of elderly men and women in Sydney, Australia, showed that higher dairy product consumption was associated
  5. anybody here doin' this diet?? if so, any success?
  6. melody... u stated that u wash your face with ga. short for glycolic acid??
  7. does anybody live in a house with a roof pitch of 3 degrees?
  8. manuka oil is apparently 20-30 times more potent than standard tea tree oil. i've used it in the past and found it to be very good -- only dont go overboard as it can have a drying effect. you can order it thru www.livingnature.com order the 'pure mauka oil' (Leptospermum scoparium). dont worry about a carrier oil etc, you dont need it. just apply it neat.
  9. hey ennui... i use to suffer from severe cystic acne. i went on roaccutane, gave myself a "trial period" of 2 months, and it did absolutely nothing. i was then advised to go on a gluten free diet, which i did, and it cleared it up by about 95%. i would still very ocassionally get one now and again, but now i have been completely free of them for around two years. i highly recommend you try a gluten free diet. it's could possibly be the key to ridding yourself of the acne scourge. good luck with
  10. i dont know where you live, but here in NZ you can get alternatives such as rice bread or corn bread. its more expensive than your standard loaf of bread, and texture is different... not so lite. but its not too bad an alternative to the norm. i only occasionally eat corn or rice bread. but in general, bread is totally eliminated from my diet. just eat more rice or potatoes for your complex carbos.
  11. bread was bad for me... gave me hell nasty cystic acne. disappeared as soon as i stopped eating the stuff. so i buy into the food-acne link....
  12. has anybody come across the "cure your acne in 3 days" website? and if so, did it work and whats involved?
  13. yea, milk is pretty evil. another thing i found that caused angry, cystic acne {in my case anyway} was eating bread and related products -- ie: any types of food with wheat, yeast and gluten. once i stopped shoveling that stuff done my gizzard, cystic acne was gone. so y'all might wanna try that one and see if it works for ya. go well....
