    Help

    My shaving regimen Fill sink with hot water Take shower, exfoliate face and neck with a microfiber wash cloth After shower, leave face wet, put Kiss My Face Fragrance Free Moisture Shave onto face and neck Shave lightly with the grain with a Bump Fighter fixed handle razor Rinse with water Dry off face Apply Provon Moisturizing Lotion
  2. Screw the physicians!!! They are not out to help you, they are out to make a quick buck...there is no money in the cure! This is coming from an expert on Folliculitis, and the quacks would never give up this valuable advice I am going to give you! I just posted my current shaving regimen to The Ultimate Shaving Thread in the Shaving Forum. No dermatologist/quack has ever mentioned using Betadine to "disinfect" your skin, before, and after shaving. Think of shaving as a surgical procedure, and re
  3. My current regimen: 1 Fill sink with cold water 2 Take warm shower, and wash face & neck with Betadine 3 Slather face with Kiss My Face Fragrance Free Moisture Shave 4 Shave face & neck with a Bump Fighter Fixed Handle Razor 5 Rinse face & neck with cold water Cold water you ask? I've read on-line once, and coming from someone that works in a hospital, that you cleanse in warm water, and then shave with cold. I guess this is the prep in hospitals for surgery,
  4. Try Johnson's Head-To-Toe Baby Wash, and some Triple Antibiotic Ointment! This one-two punch has killed it for me, try it!
  5. I have tried using one, and found it too aggressive for my oily, curly, and coarse facial hair. I had to take a pass on it. Sorry, it was a no go!!!

    Very Frustrated

    I've tried SP without any results, maybe try MSM instead.
  9. I cannot condone the use of antibiotics to control acne, based on my own experiences!
  10. No, it's actually methylsulfonylmethane - AKA sulphur. This is a micronutrient that has a multitude of benefits for the body. Look it up! If you want to give SP a shot, I say go for it! I would definitely try out MSM, you can get a bottle @ Wally World for just under $9 for 90 capsules. Maybe do a month trial taking 2 capsules a day.
  11. I did a month long trial of SP, and went through a bottle in a month, with little or no results. I would say drop the SP, and get a bottle of MSM, and start taking 2 X 1,000 mg a day - one in the morning, one in the evening. Also drop any crap soaps or shampoos you may be using! I clean my body AND hair with Kiss My Face Olive Oil Soap, you can get an 8 oz. bar for dirt cheap in the store. Shaving problems, too? - no problem, use Aveeno Shave Gel, a Bump Fighter Razor, and shave with cold water
  12. It could be hormonal, and you may NEVER outgrow it! I just starting taking Saw Palmetto last week, and am finally seeing some results!!! Based on some of the posts I read, I went with GNC's Standardized Saw Palmetto (a little pricey), and take 2 per day - 160mg each. I definitely think mine is hormonal, and related to DHT levels creating extra sebum, therefore unwanted ance, and oily skin. I've always had a very high sex drive, and just about 3 years ago, some thinning of my hair. I think all o
  13. The "fish oil experiment" was a bust. After about a week, breakouts on the back of the neck/behind the ears/lower scalp area. I scrapped these, and went back to the multivitamin, except I broke the dose in half (easily done). Clearing up yet again, so now I'm weary of any supplement with the word oil or containing oil. Almost immediately, the fish oils gave my skin an icky feeling, I started at 2X a day, and cut that right back to 1X a day. Eff multivitams, didn't do s***, again! Back to the dr

  15. me too. im taking 2 teaspoons flaxseed oil a day and two tablespoons of fish oil. i have been reading your posts from years ago about how bad your struggle with acne is. i feel for you man. have you ever given vitamin d a shot? It has been quite a struggle, and I've tried many "vitamin experiments" on myself, including Vitamin D to no avil. I've decided to give Fish Oil another shot. I'm glad to see you've followed my posts, I'm sure I've had some interesting tidbits, here and there. I've been
