  1. Cerave will be releasing a new sunscreen at the end of June (hopefully). I've been using Cerave cleanser and lotion for two years now and I think both are just as good (or better) as the cleanser and lotion sold by acne.org. I have a lot of confidence in Cerave that this new sunscreen being released will be top-notch. Scroll down to the bottom of the page to see Cerave's response regarding a new sunscreen product: http://www.cerave.com/2009/12/03/use-the-l...gets-advantage/
  2. I also use CeraVe cleanser. Their cleanser is better than Cetaphil and it also doesn't have sodium lauryl sulfate which Cetaphil has (its probably not that big of a deal but its known to be a bad ingredient that aggravates your skin). If you use lotion or cream, Cerave cream is less shiny than Cerave lotion so if you use it during the day get the cream.
  3. I started taking stress-vitamin b tablets twice a day (buy them at a health food store) and its helped a lot. Acne is caused partly by stress so thats probably why. Switching from aveeno ultra-calming soap to cerave cleanser helped. Eating slightly healthier seems to help. Anyone else have anything to add?
  4. B5 won't work that well. Its NOT the same as accutane. Accutane is a safe way of overdosing vitamin A. I would recommend accutane over B5. You'll see results w/ accutane.
  5. CeraVe cleanser is better than both of those. You can get it at Walgreens. I would say Cerave>Cetaphil Gentil>Cetaphil Daily.
  6. Definitely see a derm and NOT a GP to get accutane. GP might not want to put you on it. Also, use cerave cream and cleanser twice a day. Accutane will dry you out.
  7. cerave is better for cleanser and moisturizer. the ingredients for the cleaner are better than cetaphils. theres no SLS in cerave.
  8. ya, there is a special medicated one. it works a lot better than the regular burts bees
  9. carefull with vaseline. if you get it anywhere above or below your lips you'll break out. go to walgreens or cvs and get burts bees medicated lip balm. that shit works awesome.
  10. cerave works better than cetaphil. i buy at walgreens or cvs. get the cream, not lotion for less shine.
  11. I used to use Neutrogena Ultra-Sheer Dry Touch SPF 30. Now I"m using PETER THOMAS ROTH - Uber-Dry Sunscreen SPF 30. It's almost the same as the neutrogena except it has better/healthier ingredients with no fragrance. PETER THOMAS ROTH UBER-DRY SUNSCREEN, SPF 30 has a hazard score of 2 out of 10 (1 being best) http://www.cosmeticsdatabase.com/product.php?prod_id=159854 NEUTROGENA ULTRA SHEER DRY-TOUCH SUNBLOCK, SPF 30 has a hazard score of 7 out of 10 http://www.cosmeticsdatabase.com/product.
