  1. Ok for the past few days I've been washing my face morn and eve with Dove Bar and my skin is a lot less oily. The dove bar really does feel as though it's moisturized me too. I think i'll stick with this, as I ahve really oily skin and this seems to help a lot.
  2. I want to drink Peppermint tea and feel it will work. However I'm worried I will lose my facial hair and get breast tissue etc. I also worry my body will make more testosterone to counter it lol. I don't like the idea of messing with my hormones.
  3. Hey people, Just wondering what are the nicest tasting herbal tea. See I've cut out everything but water and would like soemthing that tastes nice, I really like the taste of peppermint tea. However i'm worried as I'm male and it is known to reduce testosterone. Can anyone recommend any others, maybe even ones that are good for acne.
  4. Hmmm interesting. Maybe it is true when people say "wash your face" lol. I'll give it a go though/ Is it better to jsut use water or should I use a cleanser? and can you recommend any? Also is it really necessary to mositurize whenI've already got oily skin? I mean wont apply Jojoba oil make the situation worse?
  5. Question: How long have you been abstaining from masturbation for? When did you begin this experiment.
  6. Ido not wash my face every day, sometimes I go 3 days without splashing water on it or using a cleanser. I must mention that I have oily skin to the touch, which is very shiny. Would washing my face reduce my mild/moderate acne. I.e Washing away the layer of sebum say twice a day?
  7. Obviously, I'm not really eating grass, Alternativista. Yes, I agree with you, Spikey! I've been intaking much more omega three, including flax seed which has lots of fiber and I am feeling better. I have made permanent changes to my diet and am eating much, much healthier than before, which is something I will keep with me because I actually enjoy it. I've had a BMI calculation done and 60% of the calories I intake should be carbs. That's saying something right there! I understand why p
  8. I feel the same, i've currently cut out all sugar inc. sweet drinks, cakes, sweets lol. It's really hard cos so many of my snacks were biscuits, chocolate etc, so i find i'm always hungry. I'm on my third week of six and then I will judge the overall effects. If it works i'll have to look at how I can consume more calories, healthily, cos our bodies are obviously telling us they need more. I think a mistake is to remove something from your diet that people say breaks them out, as eventually we
  9. Oh my goodness!! Those effects are incredible. What the hell! I cannot believe that a simple tea could do this, drinking tea gives you breasts damn! Anyway I hope you get back to normal. Does anyone know if peppermint tea increase estrogen in men? What are it's effects? Also could there be benefits from drinking say a cup 5 days a week, without the negative side effects.
  10. I've given up sugar too! Im on my 3rd day! Have you seen much difference in breakouts since giving up the white stuff? Oh and also how is peanut butter a life-saver?
  11. Ok I have moderate acne and I'm gonna try this from today. I haven't masturbated since Sunday so this is day 3, without it. Okay i'll keep a written log here. I will do that, people always say they will then forget about it lol. I to have noticed when I haven't masturbated my skins got better, i'm going to find out for sure whether that's just coincidence or NOT>!
  12. Sorry but I find that strange. I mean what's the difference between having a layer of natural oil on your face and slapping on moisturizer? I mean if you really wanted you could rub your face to work in the sebum? lol.
  13. I don't like the sound of this. I mean the dose of UVA from a tanning machine is a lot stronger than from the sub. Therefore using this for 2 minutes a day will accumulate to 14 minutes a week times that by say 50 weeks of a year is a LOTTTT of hours of UVA exposure and this over a life doesn't sound good. I'd rather have acne then premature aging and blotchy, sun damaged skin. I do believe natural sunlight is better sadly there isn't much of that in the UK lol.
  14. WHat about when washing your hair in the bath? The shampoo gets in the water and on your face etc. WHat do you do about this?
  15. I'd just like to ask how long have you been on this dairy free diet? And more to the point have you seen any improvement in your acne?
  16. Hey i'm in the same position, i broke out really badly there from 13-16 and it's really damaged the texture of my forehead skin. I dunno if it will go back, hopefully someone will help me out.
  17. Hey there, welcome to the site. After reading your post there are a few things that spring to mind, that you need to do to combat your acne. I would suggest: You stop squeezing the spots, just let them run their course. What you're doing will spread the bacteria and the spots are more likely to leave scars. Also it doesnt really make then look better, in fact worse. I don't know if you've been to the doctors, but you must go. They can prescribe your much more effective topical or oral medicat
  18. I would love to have a go at drinking these delicious sounding green smoothies. i feel as if i don't get nowhere near enough fruit or veg in my diety, today I've had a total of 0 portions LOL. The thing is I ahev 1 question before i start, how loud are blenders? Are they painfully loud? See i don't wanna damage my hearing, does it depend on what's being blended? Also Is it ok to put veg in the blender like chopped carrots? or are they too hard.
  19. Oooh, if it's the friction you must get some real bad blisters on yo ass from sitting down
  20. I started getting acne when I was 13. I hope what you say applies to me because it'll mean I only have 9 months of acne left LOL!
  21. Well I'm 18, which i technically when you're classed as an adult. I see the people in my year with clear skin and the people in year 9-11 who have quite bad acne because they're hormones have just gone mental. Surely at 18 I shouldn't be battling with reguarly occouring, inflamed acne. I also have become so accustomed to acne that I feel it's the way skin is supposed be, almsot as if spots are part of how the skin should function. It's gotten to the point where when I see someone with clear ski
  22. Do you really believe that touching your face can cause acne to break out like that?
  23. I foudn that a product called "Freederm" that is sold here in the UK significantly reduce the amount of oil on my face.
  24. People were saying how their friends do nothing to there faces and can just crash and fall asleep, while they're there applying 100 different chemicals to their faces LOL. Anyway I realised that it's the opposite of this in my house... my sister has absolutely flawless skin, no inflamed acne or whiteheads whatsoever apart from the odd 1 every few weeks. The funny thing is that she buys 10's of products for her face from these commercial brands like l'oreal, face creams, masks, washes, gels the
