  1. AcneFree, Who gives you the authority to go around praising water stating it will guarantee to clear you 99%?? Did you know a hormonal imbalance can cause severe cystic acne? Do you honestly think an MD, or anyone with a brain would prescribe them to drink as much water as possible daily to restore their hormones to proper levels? Umm.. No. Drinking lots of water to "help" improve the condition of the skin, is not rocket science, and it's been around since the dawn of the roman empire. Notic
  2. Dan, I just want to let you know, the past week or so I was doing spot treatment with your gel on my chin, within 3 days, the cyst I had pretty well disappeared!! I notice that i'm breaking out around my jawline occasionally, so I've decided to use it on my entire face now, and it feels and looks great Your a life saver Dan, if only there were more people like you, this would be such a great world . I'll definetly keep you posted on how it turns out, but just by the feeling on my face.. I can
  3. Yep!!! That's a water fast! Some people have gone as high as 40 days on a water fast. Mind you, it's really only for people with serious illnesses who need to do a major cleaning of your body. Youngen's need not apply.
  4. Good Advice.. I don't know why were so hard on ourselves, I really doubt I'll ever understand why. I realize we are our worst critic in every way possible. We live in a society, where a "perfect" image is constantly portrayed on TV.. It's so depressing when one minute you think your making great progress then you turn on the Tube, and take a look at all the perfect faces on TV.. (yes, I know alot of it is makeup), but it does have it's effect on ones self-esteem.. *Sigh* I don't know how the
  5. This one is extremely hard to answer.. I'm 21, and have had acne, since I was 18, it's had its ups, and it's down. I've tried so many different products it's crazy like everyone else. I'm "hoping", the older I get, maybe in 4 or 5 years time, I won't have to use any more topicals, but who really knows? My suggestion is if you find something that works, don't worry about if your acne is going to come back or not, just keep on doing what your doing and hope for the best. Cheers
  6. Tanning is awesome, I like to tan a few months prior to summer, because otherwise I have a job where i'm constantly outside, and if I don't tan, i'll start to peel like crazy. BP never effected me at all last year when I tanned, Actually I normally tanned later in the day, so applying BP in the morning, and then tanning sometime in the late afternoon, early evening was the best bet. I did apply tanning oil.. which I think was a mistake i wont' be doing the same this summer, creams are better
  7. So true. I'm trying to eat more salads nowadays, and I SELDOM have milk products, we recently started buying Soy Milk, which I have a cup of, occasionally ever 2nd day or so. I do drink ALOT of Protein Whey, because I workout, which I'm not really sure how much of a negative effect this would have on my acne, but.. it's part of my weight-lifting program, so I'm not about to give up everything I worked so hard to acheive just because i'm getting a few pimples. But I think like you said for mil
  8. If the main culprit is genetics, explain to me why both my parents have NEVER had acne in their life, in fact, on my mom's side NO ONE in their family has had acne because we talked about it one night, same as dad's side. While genetics may be at play for alot of us, it's not the case for everyone, Like I said.. It's not a "myth" for everyone, unless all these years when my face has been clearing it has been purely coincidental, and maybe my acne was never as bad as I *thought* it was and I w
  9. BlackBird, Awesome, Awesome post, I could never have put it in any better words then you have, and it all makes sense, most fail to view this side, as they aren't willing to put in 30-45 minutes of moderate to intense exercise EVERYDAY. I actually have a next door neighbor who is chinese and he SWEARS that sweating is EXCELLENT for health, and yes SKIN! The chinese have used this for a long time, and acne is more prodiminent in North America, then China, and coincidentally, the U.S., has roug
  10. Myth? Not really a "myth". I mean, I've never heard people prescribe sweat to clear acne, however... I believe sweating, and exercise in general is good for your health (obviously), and has some positive effects on how your body rids itself of waste, toxins, which DOES had a positive effect on your skin. Cheers
  11. Hmm I know I posted this on the 12th, but I haven't used anything on my skin since saturday evening. So far.. natural oil levels have seemed to returned to my skin (very quick), my complexision is DEFINETLY more clear, in other words my skin isn't near as blotchy when using BP, it's more consistent. the small bumps I had have disappeared, must have been the BP causing it, hence why i correlated sweating to improving it, as it was taking the BP AWAY from my skin. And to be quite honest, whe
  12. Yea.. very possible, I mean.. I've been suffering from acne for the past.. 3-4 years.. and now I'm starting to think back.. ok, when I was in great shape.. exercising alot (eating healthy?? Actually.. not really..), did I have any acne, or if I did what was it like? Now.. I remember I was on ProActiv at the time, as well.. BUT I don't think I used it very often due to the fact the sweat, pretty well takes everything off your face if anything is there. I have the sweat gene.. so 45 minutes of exe
  13. OK! I think I *may* be on to something.. this morning I woke up.. did my usual, applied some BP to my acne prone areas, leaving the spots, I think are being irritated by the BP out.. that was fine, it looked not bad.. Until, i went out in the sun.. now I stayed out for a bit.. was so warm.. I'm also an anti-sun screen users, as I believe the chemicals in sun-screen can actual PROMOTE skin cancer, rather then PREVENT it. As rediculous as this might sound, years ago our grandparents seldom heard o

  15. I think my best bet at the moment, is to let my skin "heal", for the next 2 weeks, without applying any products.. I'm inclined to say I don't have an allergy to BP.. but I can't be 100% sure.. but if i stop using it, and these bumps go away.. then I know there must be something there. Thanks! Cheers
  16. Thanks for the awesome advice! I'm going to check at my local pharmacy to see if SA Products are available. What really amazes me, or I guess confuses, me.. Is how, BP, could work successfully, with a 99.9% clear rate, for almost a year and a half solid.. and then one day doesn't become as effective.. and after going on and off.. and I need to find an alternate as BP sure it works for acne, but like you said.. it's not working for whatever other skin condition I have. On a side note, my fa
