  1. Has anyone experienced any hair loss after prolonged B5 intake? I'm considering trying to use B5 to control oil production, and I want to make an informed decision. Thanks in advance.
  2. It's possible. Maybe it's trying to rehyrdate itself after all the b.p?
  3. Yeah, my skin's oil levels jumped noticably as I started applying lower levels of BP, too. I didn't have oily skin before I started BP, so I'm wondering if this is a temporary deal. Sure is obnoxious.
  4. I'm in the process of coming off BP myself. I started by not putting any on my chin, which was never a big problem area for me. After having no problems, I stopped putting it on my cheeks. Currently, I only put it on my nose, upper lip, and the area right around my nose; occasionally I'll put some on my forehead at night, but not too often. It feels great to come off the stuff--you can feel you skin saying "Phew! It's about time!" If you don't feel a positive difference in the feel of your skin
  5. I've used the stuff for a while. I used it twice a day when I used more BP because my face was flakier, but now I just used it in the morning. It's great.
  6. I was never on the DKR proper, but in the past I've used quite a bit of BP morning and night in much the same way that Dan recommends. Recently, I've tried to come off it a bit because I'm sort of "growing out" of acne (thank God). I've noticed a pretty sharp increase in my oil production, and was wondering two things: a) Is there a direct correlation between coming off of BP and increased oil? and b) What can I do to combat this? Here's my "regimen", if you want to call it one: Morning: Exfol
  7. As I've mentioned in other threads, I'm currently in the process of weening myself off BP. I don't get much acne anymore (2-3 spots a month at most), but I still use the same washing regimen that I've used for the past 4 or so years--aka, when my acne was mild-ish moderate. Here's what I do every day: Morning and Night: Exfoliate with Nivea for Men face scrub Wash with Cetaphil face wash BP everywhere but forehead and chin (at night I put it on my forehead, though) Nivea sensitive skin moisturi
  8. Look for changes in the feel of your skin. It's hard to describe, but you'll know the feeling when you get it. I've mostly "grown out" of it on my chin and part of my cheeks.
  9. I don't see any cysts, so I definitely don't think it qualifies as severe. I don't really understand the distinction between moderate and mild, but I'd lean toward the latter because it sound like the least extreme classification. You don't look too bad. Try BP--I think it might help. I used to be similar to you when I was your age, and BP did wonders for me.
  10. What are you exfoliating with? Chemical exfoliants never worked for me, and I know a lot of people who have had little success with them. I'd recommend an actual face scrub; I use Nivea for Men's stuff, but I know there are a ton of others that work just as well.
  11. I heard that you can cure acne by mixing 2 parts gasoline to 3 parts antifreeze to 1 part play-dough. Come on, ya'll--this thread is a joke. At least I hope it is...
  12. Congratulations on your success. Out of curiosity, what was your normal routine before you started this method? Like I said before, I'm curious to see if there's any commonality between those who have had good results on the dip regimen.
  13. Easy there--never said that. I've never tried this method and I never will. I've read a good chunk of this thread, and the majority of the responses say something about how it either hasn't worked at all or it worked for a few days and quit working. Very seldom do I come accross a poster who's had consistent results using this "regimen". I'm not flaming people at all; I'm simply saying that on paper, merely dipping your face into hot water isn't as effective as other options. If it works for you
