    i think something is working

    I just wanted to let you all know that it looks like some part of my regimen is clearing me up. I wish I could figure out WHICH part, but because I don't know, I'm going to continue with everything. What I've been doing the last couple months: Spironolactone: 150mg Vitamin B5: 10g/day Supplements: Essential Fatty Acids, EPO, Zinc, B-Complex Desert Essence products: Face Wash with TTO, Clay Mask, Daily Moisturizer ACV and/or lemon juice as astringent, scar-fader Neutrogena 10% BP for spot treatm

    How long for B5 to be effective?

    I'm taking 10grams per day. I'm scared to decrease until after i have cleared up a significant amount...if i EVER get clear from this!!
  5. I've been on b5 for almost a month and have only seen a slight improvement (and only sometimes). For all you B5ers out there, how long did it take for you to see a SIGNIFICANT improvement?? A couple weeks? 1 month? 2 months? 3 months? 4 or more?? I would LOVE your responses...thanks ahead of time!!!!!!!!
  6. Hi. I started taking 10g of Vitamin B5 on January 27th, 2007. It's now February 19th, 2007. Getting close to a month and I can't tell if I'm seeing improvements. I think I might be, but it could be because of the other parts of my regimen. I was just wondering if any of you have had success with B5 and how long it took to be clear from it!! Help please!! Thanks, in advance.

    What does a the "initial purge" look like?

    Yeah, I was wondering if maybe my skin isn't liking either ACV or jojoba. That would be really sad though, because so many people love it! I did start to dilute the ACV (doesn't sting nearly as much) and i think i will take a jojoba break for a little bit. back to normal moisturizer (

    How often to do you exfoliate? It seems you've flushed the toxins out of your body, now you need to properly cleanse your face without irritating it . I had that same thing going on after 3 weeks of acv, the small bumps. But I realized it's because I never exfoliated. What you need to do is get a small facial exfoliation brush, and as you use your daily cleanser, use the brush to geeeently rub it in your face instead of your hands. Then rinse off clean, you'll feel the difference, and within
  9. I've been on 150mg of Spironolactone, 10g of B5, ACV, and Jojoba Oil for a few weeks now (approx. 3). Recently, over the past week my skin has been doing weird stuff. I don't have as MANY big, painful zits as i used to, but i have many more smaller bumps. Some are really tiny (clogged pores??) others are little whiteheads. I don't know what's going on!! How can I know if I am purging my skin (which will help in the long run) OR if what i'm seeing is newly clogged pores??? HELP!!
  10. thanks for the encouragement ohnonotanothercysticpimple, even the smallest bit of positive information can be so uplifting these days!!! Everyone else-- Any other opinions/experience?
  11. I am getting really worried that this regimen I'm on isn't going to clear me up Maybe I'm just being impatient. I've been on 150mg of Spironolactone and 10 grams of b5 daily for 2.5 weeks. It seems like so many people on these boards see improvement from those things in only a matter of days. I think I maybe don't have as many active zits, but the ones i get are so red and painful--the papules that can't be popped and take forever to go away. Right now I have 3-4 of them. Does anyone have any
