  1. I'm pretty sure they are Fordyce Spots. As far as I know there is no easy way to get rid of them but they are harmless.
  2. Chances are if you have blackheads now they will always come back even after you have them extracted. Best thing to do after extraction is use a BHA product as preventative maintenance to keep the pores clean.
  3. Stick it out with Paula's Choice 2% BHA for at least 2 months before you give up on it. It's normal that it gets worse before it gets better. It's probably the most effective product out there for blackheads. Otherwise, visit an esthetician to extract them. They can also offer other suggestions that might help.
  4. Ray Kurzweil takes 250 supplements a day. He doesn't do it for acne though. Due to his wealth, he probably gets his supplements custom made and with guaranteed purity and quality ingredients. http://www.livescience.com/health/ap_Kurzweil_050213.html
  5. I'm not sure if you're already doing this but adding 30-45 minutes of cardio 5 times a week can help.
  6. There are no magic words to pick up women. You either have it or you don't. Men who have success with women are usually very social people who can maintain conversations with anyone. If you're not outgoing and social, then you'd better be very rich or easy on the eyes if you expect any success at night clubs. You can try putting on a front and act like someone you're not, but it's not going to get you a long-term fruitful relationship. You'd be really lucky if it even gets women back to you
  7. You can use BP, but keep in mind that once you stop using it, your acne will come right back; unless you get lucky and grow out of it. With BP, your acne will likely get worse before it gets better. Not to mention having to deal with flaky red skin that looks thin and unhealthy. I would focus on reducing inflammation from the inside. Eat lots of fruits and leafy greens while avoiding highly inflammatory foods like junk and processed foods.. Maybe also introduce a zinc supplement and Omega
  8. I think it's because skin cell turnover is much faster in that area. You can help speed things along in other areas by exfoliating.
  9. The quickest way would be to get some sort of prescription steroid pill. Another solution which will take more time is simple aloe vera gel. But it can take a while depending on the severity of the burns. You can also try a mild 0.5% hydrocortisone cream which can be found for cheap at your drug store. In the meantime, don't use any harsh topicals or exfoliants on your skin. Also, use a gentle cleanser without any BHA or AHA.
  10. Something very similar happened to me several months ago when I first tried ACV, although not as severe. I made the mistake of using ACV the day after a BHA or AHA peel(can't remember). I guess I hadn't diluted the ACV enough and it was my first time using it. It took at least a week for the rash/burn to subside but the redness lasted about 3 weeks. For treatment I just used tons and tons of aloe vera gel and also stopped using any other topicals. My skin was back to normal within a month.
  11. http://www.drugstore.com/products/prod.asp...randFilter=7836 Get ready to say goodbye to other cleansers.
  12. The only way to get rid of blackheads without resorting to accutane is to follow a strict regimen for several months. Mine took about 7-8 months to clear up using the following products: -Paula's Choice BHA, twice a day, everyday. -Biore Ultra pore strips once a week. -Pure Deming 5% salicylic acid mini-peel, once every 2-3 weeks. -Baby brush exfoliation, whenever my nose didn't feel smooth. Keep in mind, a lot of your blackheads took years to form. They will not disappear overnight or even
  13. I can relate to your situation but for me it happened at 24 years old. Best thing I can tell you is avoid those antibiotics and harsh topicals. Get yourself a full physical exam. Test everything, blood, liver, stool, etc. Acne is not a disease but a symptom of something that is going on inside your body. One does not suddenly develop acne during adulthood without some underlying cause being responsible. Find the root of the problem and deal with that. Personally, I've finally gotten m
