  1. hi friends. just to let you know i used FOTE aloe vera gel and everything has cleared up. most excellent using the jojoba in conjunction with it.
  2. similar to evening primrose oil? yeah damn. i'm going to start using aloe too hopefully that works:) yes you could say primrose and flax are supposed to work in the same way for acne. but i took 3000mg of EPO (300mg of GLA) for 2 years, during that period of time i had acne. however when i began taking the flax i started clearing up and staying clear:) that is, until now of course...
  3. hello! flaxseed oil is taken orally (liquid form has the highest potency), and is very high in omega-3s, thus believed to bring your hormones into balance and regulate prostaglandin production, and alleviate the inflammation from acne. i think you can get it from any health food stores, if you're in the US i believe walmart carries it too. you can look at the ratings page for flaxseed oil, it seems to be working out very well for lots of people. be sure to refrigerate it, and that it has some
  4. hm i am almost 100% positive my acne has nothing to do with hormonal imbalances. i was having my prelim examinations a month ago. during that time, i ate a lot of junk food, and slept around 3+ hours a night for days. my face remained clear. i can tell you that eating a bag of chips or half a pizza has little to no effect on my face. i also never get stressed, except over my acne... i've actually been clear for 3 months. the only difference so far is the jojoba oil. i want to kill myself.
  5. hi folks. so i started using jojoba oil a week ago. let me tell you a bit about my acne history first. i battled moderate acne for nearly a year, i had at least 10+ inflammed spots at any one time - not your "garden variety zits". anyway i cleared up 3 months ago when i began taking flaxseed oil, and stopped using medications, just a cleanser and plenty of moisturizer. for the last 3 months i rarely got a zit, usually a small whitehead that would go away on its own... my main problems were the
  6. Hi friends. I have a really severe problem with oiliness. I'm reading a lot about jojoba oil, and it seems like it has a lot of promise. However, apart from the fact that this forum has a rather odd and inefficient search engine, most of the posts I've found about jojoba oil seem to merely rehash the same idea that jojoba may help trick the skin into producing less oil as it has a similar texture to sebum (smth like that). I've looked at the Ratings page for Jojoba oil, not that much info on ho
  7. Btw I gotta say. I don't know if steaming/dipping actually works for some of you. But I found that in that past when I didn't begin bathign with hot water, I never had acne. Recently I stopped bathing with hot water for the past few weeks and I do not even get the smallest pimple. This might be the result of the flaxseed oil as well, but I'm about 90% sure it has something to do with not bathing with hot water as well.
  8. OMG I feel you, except HAHAHA you think that's bad I get oily in like 1/2 an hour uhhhh yeah, it's HOOOOORIBLE! I agree those little blotting things don't reallly do crap. Hmm... where can I get the flaxseed oil etc? Hey babe. Hmm any health food shop I believe? I live in Singapore, and if I can find it here, I'm sure it's all over in America. Be sure that it's Certified Organic. I think you can get it at Wal-Mart as well. ;)
  9. Hey fishies;) Er what exactly is dipping? I really don't know about washing once a day. I could try to see how that goes, but the cleanser I'm using now is probably as mild as it gets. I'm definitely looking into trying jojoba oil.
  10. Hey folks. Well I'm cleared of acne now, but I've got a severe problem with oiliness. How oily is my face? Well it starts to get shiny like 3 hours after washing my face. After 3 hours, I have to use like 2 whole blotting sheets on my face (I use Clean & Clear), and I have to blot every 2 hours after that to keep my face matte. This really isn't a solution. I wash twice a day, with warm water, and Eucering Sebum Reducing Cleansing Gel. I moisturize at night with Eucering Skin Regulating Crem

  13. what acne? btw, your little sister looks damn fine;)
  14. Craigy, I'm very fascinated by your findings, and it seems like you're on to something. My question is, what was the amount of Biotin you took a day, and for how many days did you take it, before you noticed your skin becoming more oily?
