  1. Ok after reading the rules above I have a question. There should be no difference between using 1 unit of a 5% BHA vs. 2.5 units of a 2% BHA correct?

  5. Am I supposed to be able to find 100% ACV? Everything I find says its dilluted to 5% acidity with water.. so is this what everyone is using, and diluting to 50/50 with more water if necessary?
  6. I was on accutane in my teens and I was completely clear. When I got off it however, the blackheads on my nose came back and I cannot get rid of them for the life of me. I have large pores and very oily skin, yet it dries out so easily. I always have to moisturize if my face any time it gets wet at all. After getting off accutane I tried queen helenes mint julep mask & biore pore strips, and biore foaming cleanser. After 6 months I didn't see results. About 8 months ago I got fed u
