  1. I wouldn't recommend it. I don't think it's worth the risk seeing the side effects.
  2. That definitely depends on a few things. I would firstly cut it down to 25 mg/day. There are certain things as well that you can do to lose zinc in your body (i.e. masturbation), so have you changed that since you started taking these supplements?
  3. I would vote against it. It seems like it's too thick, wouldn't absorb into the skin very well. And, oil naturally doesn't mix with water, so it would end up keeping water from doing it's job as well (showers, moisturizing etc). Also, you need some type of sunblock too, and olive oil isn't going to do it.
  4. There are definitely good products out there for cheap, but you can't over do it. Start with one, and only focus on stopping the current acne now before you focus on the scars. Once the current acne is gone and not a concern, look to fix the scars, again one product at a time.
  5. A lot of time those are brought out by the sun, so use a moisturizer with spf 15 or so, but make sure it's oil free. This should lesson the sight of them until they're healed naturally.
  6. I think that if it's getting worse, then it's not a cure for you. I think the proper cure would firstly stop all active pimples/acne/cysts, then you deal with what's there. BP will not alone cure it, only help it.
  7. Using some sun screens would probably help to lesson the visibility of the red marks on your upper back/neck.
  8. The weird part about that is that, for the most part, the people doing it are not intentionally looking at your acne.
  9. I disagree actually. I think that moisturizer is a must whether you have oily, dry, or normal skin. If you have dry skin, it will obviously moisturize it, and keep it from flaking. If you have oily skin, it will keep the sebum production down, hence both fighting acne and keeping your face non-greasy looking. It really depends on the amount of moisturizer you use. Hope this helps.
  10. This thread is a joke. You cannot expect what has worked for you to work for everyone. Also, lose the ego now, coming here with a full head of steam is destined for failure.
  11. I do, and have for over a year. It seems to be the only one that doesn't irritate skin, nor dry it out.
  12. Hey buddy, Don't get down on yourself! I went through exactly what you did! I can definitely help you out. There are a lot of things that you haven't tried, being natural/things you wouldn't normally think about that I can show you. Give me a PM please.

  14. That looks fine, as long as you're careful to not irritate the skin at all, that will cause the redness and infection. And also make sure the extractor is sterilized by either running it under very hot water, or under a flame.
  15. I have an herbal blemish stick, which is the simplest way to apply it. (it comes ready to apply)
