  1. I'm a little late to the party, but I'm in as well! I pick a ton, but I also TOUCH my face a LOT. I'll constantly just run my hands over my face, feeling for new pimples/checking on the size of the old ones/etc... I'm sure it's causing a ton of my acne, but I can't seem to stop. Hopefully this will give me some accountability :/
  2. Dan: I tried the new moisturizer for the first time five minutes ago and just had to drop what I was doing and run upstairs to tell you how wonderful I think you are. This is, by far, the best moisturizer I have ever used. It smells nice, is extremely light, and, of course, moisturizes like no other. (I wondered the second after I touched it to my face if you had decided to add the jojoba oil and upon reviewing the ingredients was not disappointed-- great call!) I owe so much to you, Dan. You ha
  3. I tried out my new Zeno last night and this morning. I had two spots, a rising pustule on my forehead and a formed papule on my cheek (I THOUGHT it was a papule, but even though I thought I could see the pus at the head, it wouldn't pop with some gentle squeezes). The zeno has GREATLY improved the spot on the forehead. It is much, much flatter and I have just treated it a second time. The spot on my cheek may or may not be better. It's not gone, but it may be smaller. It may not have helped, but
  4. I know that the owner's manual says it doesn't, but has anyone found that it helped even a little bit with pimples that have visible pus at the tip? I have a nasty one on my cheek and really want it gone by Sunday. Thanks!
  5. Seems like a lot of people have had success with the rubber band/hair tie idea. Hmm.. Glad to hear that so many of you have overcome similar habits! It gives me hope for myself. Thanks for all the replies.
  6. The tissue thing is really good... It could help a lot, I think. That and the fake nails should let me make some progress.
  7. Haha, willpower... I have no willpower. Stick-on nails is a great idea. They would definitely catch my attention. Thanks everyone!
  8. What you want her to sit there and touch her boobs or her cratch =/
  9. Hey everyone. I've been on the a great regimen (DKR) for eight months now and have had amazing success. Amazing-- but not perfect. I still get pimples more often than I would like. I know that no regimen can stop all acne, but judging from testimony on the DKR board, I think most people on the DKR have seen slightly better results. This is probably to be expected, considering that I CANNOT STOP TOUCHING MY FACE!!! I don't pick at pimples (I used to do this compulsively), I just sort of run my fi
  10. Man, I wish I could... I just don't have the courage to let up on the regimen at this point. I've only been on it for eight months or so and I still get a few pimples, so I can only imagine what would happen if I stopped applying once a day. I look forward to a time when I can think about letting up on the BP application, though. when I was thinking about what to do over the summer, I seriously considered skipping the camp because of the regimen... But then I decided that I didn't want to let m
  11. There's an idea! Haha, I can't believe I never thought of that... It's silly to need a mirror for the entire process. That really helps. I can apply the BP in the bathroom and go back to my dorm to rub it in. Thanks so much-- that idea may seem obvious, but it just didn't occur to me.
  12. Hey everyone. I'm going to camp for six weeks and will be sleeping in a dorm where there are two bathrooms per floor. I will also have a roommate. I am by no means ashamed of my skin care regimen-- after all, it's helped me so much! But I am slightly anxious about standing in front of a mirror for twenty minutes having everyone look at me. Surely one of you wonderful people must have been in this sort of situation. How did you handle it? Did you find that people were supportive? Thanks!
  13. Yeah, I would say just from the description that it's a cyst. Nasty little buggers, aren't they? (sickofacne113, I love your signature. I like excuses to practice my French. Canada IS looking pretty good right now, isn't it? )
  14. I'll definitely do that. Thanks!
  15. Hey guys. I just got back from lunch, where I had a salad loaded with cheese (yum!). Then I glanced in the mirror and found a new pimple. Something I had read here came to mind-- dairy breaks some people out! I drink soymilk because my parents are lactose intolerant, so I don't know if I'm one of those people, but it could very well be the case. Are there any ways that I could counteract the possible breakout from eating all that cheese? Any ideas are welcome. Ahhh! Thanks.
