    I use the neutrogena but i wish it was a higher spf. I like the 30+ spf of the bald guyz but i was afraid it might clog my pores.

    well the bald guy's one is definately better against the sun because it's spf 30+ ,and neutragena is spf 15.

    However, the bald guy's spf has oil's in it. Overall.... you have to decide which one you want.

    hey, but you can prob. get some sunscreen spf 30+ without oils!! :)

    oh one more thing spf 30+ means it will work for 30 mins...and spf 15 will work for 15 minutes...then u gotta reapply


  2. I have bacne, and im using tret cream which is doing pretty well for it right now. Ive got alot of scars that are taking their sweet time to go away tho. Anyhoo, ive always wanted a tattoo on my back, but I was wondering, is bad for the acne/scars? Would it make me break out? Get an infection? Or is it generally okay? Hopefully some one has experience with this...

    Hmmm....well I do know that tattoo artists do not tattoo over scar tissue because scar tissue isnt as pourous to allow to ink in.

    A tattoo will cover up scars. It's up to the tattoo artist to determin whether he/she will tattoo over the scars.

    :) good luck and tell me how it goes!


  3. ok I 've been on b5 for 7 months now and my acne had reduced but lately I 've been having dry skin, which i think it is making me breakout a bit. i was wondering do b5 users use facil lotion. I read that honey masks are good for dry skin. should i lower the b5 grams? I take 10 grams .

    thank eve.

    I use honey masks, and they work really well to absorb oil and heal/soothe the skin.


  4. When I was sick my acne got worse!!! I think it's 100% the diet today.

    For 2 months I gave up milk, sugar, chocolate, any caffeine (except green tea).

    I ate only almonds, fruits, veggies, fish and I took supplements such as calcium and omega fatty acids.

    My acne was 100% GONE!

    One day my sister offfered me a candy bar (snickers) and I said why not?

    I ate it, and again I was addicted to todays processed foods.

    I have acne again, and I try to go back o nthe diet but my cravings are too strong!!!!

    It's that physical and mental addiction to processed foods!!!!

    Someone help me break the addiction!

    Any ideas?


  5. you know- to the person above me-

    I always have had success with poping a cyst by making it come to a head.

    I know alot of peope say it'll just make it red and spread infection, but to tell ya the truth I find it better to squeeze the stuff out and apply benzoyl peroxide to the blemish.

    When I just leave them alone...they just hurt and it takes forever for them to go away!


  6. Were you really prescribed both Tazorac and BP ? Because thats outrageous! Tazorac alone is do irritating to the skin...and with BP? Wow man. How u do it?

    I know with BP my skin is dry and red, but if i added Tazorac....wow I think I wouldnt have skin left...

    no skin...no acne? lol i mjust kidding but really how?

    I know different peoples skin is different but I dont think it a good idea to use both.


  7. I used retin-a years ago, but I was like tottaly allergic to it. I didnt even put that much on and the enxt day my skin was so red and sensative that it like felt it was producing heat or something :xxx: . It cleared about 50% OF MY ACNE :angel: . I kept with it for like 2 months. It like burned my skin off. Good for the scars but bad for socializing.....lmao

    I didnt want to leave the house, so my derm prescribed me other stuff. But it worked really well for my sister, so I do believe it is a good product :D


  8. I developed acne at age 10. At 10 years old my mother took me to the derm. He prescribed a cream called Aknemycin. using it for 2 months, my acne dissapeared. Unfortunately my insurance stopped covering it after the 2 months, and my acne came back.

    Im 17 now, and for some weird reason my derm told me that my insurance now covers Aknemycin again!

    Anybody ever use it? Or hear of it? I know it's not well known because for many years most insurances didn't cover it, but im sure someone has recently been prescribed it!


  9. my dad is horrible to me about my skin! He says things like

    "Use the soap to clean your face once in a while"

    "Your skin looks like this kid I used to know in high school, we used to call him pizza face"

    My dad is so fucking mean. He has perfect skin, and I tell him to shove it up his ass all the time.

    See my dad is rude and immature.

    My mom....well my mom is just plain bitchy to begin with...


  10. I know this sounds really simple, but go to the store and buy aloe vera or vitamin E GEL (gel only). It's really cheap for a big bottle.

    Everytime you clean your face, immediately right after apply the gel.

    Do not apply around your eyes though.

    It doesnt burn, it soothes, dries up pimples, moisturizes (yes even dries up pimples), and it's cheap.

    I still have acne, but it's an ongoing battle; however, this works really well for me It's not a cure by any means, but it's pretty darn good.

    You should see results in 4 days!

    Try this, and tell me how it goes. Keep with it and keep me updated.


  11. Accutane is way too exspensive for those who dont have insurance. Don't think that accutane is the only way to help with your acne because there are lots of cheap alternatives. Plus, I never took accutane because it poisons your body.

    I have back acne, and it's horrible! My friends would invite me to go swimming, but I always made up an excuse.

    I tried putting Benzoyl Peroxide on my chest and back but oh my gosh did I ruin almost every shirt I had. BP bleaches almost everything! So my plan was so use it only at night with old shirts. It got rid of my back acne....I was clear for 1 year! Until now after not using it...my back and chest acne have returned.

    If you have a dollar general by you, they have good sized Benzoyl Peroxide cream tubes for only $1-2, and they last a long time!! Mix a nickel sized amnt of the cream and some water in your palm, then apply over you acne on your back. WEAR AN OLD SHIRT!

    You can always get BP at almost anywhere, but usually it's a really small tube for $4. I used to have to buy like 3 tubes at one time. It was too exspensive (im only 17 and no job lol). My friend told me they sold a bigger tube of BP at Dollar General for half the price, so im really happy about the deal!

    LOL

    Oh yea, and if you have head and shoulders, you can use that as a body wash. Alot of people say it worked well for acne.

    Hope I helped someway! Tell me how it goes, k?


  12. By the way here's a really interesting thing about my family.

    My mother is from a Island, and where she is from they dont have processed foods and dairy products.

    She told me no one ever had acne when she was a little girl.

    When outside foods were introduced to her island years later, alot of people started to get acne (including my mother).

    My mother moved here ( to USA), and had me.

    I have acne too.

    I believe my mothers people can't digest certain food sa certain way or something. Theyre not used to the foods.

    Thus, genetics for myself.


  13. Hey John, enchante (nice to meet you)

    I read everything on your website, and I completely agree with everything you said.

    I believe all these oinments oly work to help on the outside with acne, but the way to get to stop acne is internally!

    I also have to tell everyone that I also have severe acne, and Im always so embarassed to face people :(.

    A year ago I hated my skin so bad, I decided to do the hardest thing I've ever done in my life- change my diet drastically.

    I ate only fresh fruits veggies, nuts and fish for a month. I also took vitamins. Nothing else I ate.

    My acne went awa (100% away)...thing is I lost 15 lbs. Im already too skinny. My doctor (regualr family doctor) told me my diet was horrible just eating that way, and I was too skinny.

    So I went back to eating dairy products, sugar and processed foods. Voila! I have severe acne once again.

    It's so difficult to follow such a strict diet! It really is !

    I feel so torn between acne, diet, and life.

    I truly believe we know the cure. We don't want to believe it is though.

    Sincerely,

  14. Dear person,

    I get those around my ears too. although theyre not as big as the one in the pic.....still I think theyre the same things I get. Mines were cysts....for some reason I only get those type of cysts around my ear area..

    I onyl get like 2 a year, but they look like the same thing you have.

    Im not a doctor, so like the others said.. a dermatoligist is a good idea!


  15. how could a zit appear in 2 hours? i thought they took weeks to form (i'm almost positive they do)

    Yes, im 100% it was only 2 and a half hours!

    The body reacts quickly in response to all foods. Im sensitive to certain foods because of heredity. It's just hard to find a pattern for some reason. Prob. because I eat a variety of food, so I dont know which one exactly caused the breakout/reaction.

    I notice whenever I eat certain foods that have alot of sugar in them I break out prity fast. It just depends on the person.

    I think I broke out the worst ever when I had a frapachino. It took only one day for a bunch of pimples to pop up.
