  1. Hello. I don't come here much, but I have an account because I have a persistent mild to moderate acne problem. I've been thinking about using a sulfate-free cleanser. I'm referring to cleansers without the popular sodium lauryl sulfate or sodium laureth sulfate ingredients. In fact, I want a cleanser that is free of any detergents. Is anyone familiar with a cleanser without detergents? I've been looking into detergent-free soap like the original lye soap of the old school, but I haven't boug
  2. I went to the derm and he told me to keep on using it because it doesn't cause abnormal lightening of the skin. However, when I called OrthoNeutrogena, the company that makes retin-a-micro, they told me to stop using it and see what happens. It just so happens that the light marks on my neck gradually went away after I stopped using the medication. What happened with you?

  4. I've also stopped using shampoo because I have a dry, itchy scalp. I would like to stop using soap/body wash as well, but what about the body odor that comes from the underarms, genitals and feet? P.S. Thanks for advising me to rub my skin when cleaning. It crossed my mind earlier in the week but I forgot about it.
  5. I've heard that it takes 2-3 weeks for a pimple to surface. It supposedly develops over the course of 2-3 weeks. I asked because this way I can know whether or not to expect something in the next 2-3 weeks if the water-only method breaks me out.
  6. Hello, I am starting to realize that drawbacks come with our cultural practices in regard to hygiene. We use cleansers on our skin to clean off the oil, dirt and excess dead skin. As a consequence, we often end up with dry, irritated skin especially in the winter. This dry skin caused by cleansing warrants the use of moisturizers for relief. These moisturizers often worsen breakouts if we have acne. I've used plenty of "non-comedogenic" moisturizers (jojoba oil, cetaphil, etc.) and all of
  7. Hello, I have been using retin-a-micro for almost a year now. It has been working really good on my acne, but I may have another problem. Suddenly, about a week ago, I noticed that these light marks are coming up on the left side of my face. I am an African-American with medium to light brown skin,, and the lightened areas are yellow to light brownish. I know that I have a lot of hyperpigmentation and sun damage from inflamed pimples and using excessive acne products for five years now, but
  8. Doesn't work all that good on me, but the two main ingredients are Benzoyl Peroxide and Glycolic acid. My regimen consist of these two ingredients, but works much better for me than proactive.
  9. Jojoba oil is alright, but it doesn't really moisturize. It lubricates you skin (slightly). It helps to seal in moisture that's already present. If you want an effective moisturizer that is light and doesn't break out I suggest Nutraderm Therapeutic lotion (original formula). Everyone has different skin, but every reviewer I've read said it never broke them out. I use it and it's feels really light and absorbs really quick. Actually feels good on the skin. Try it out.
  10. I KNOW THE CLEANSER YOUR LOOKING FOR. I AM USING NOW. IT'S CALLED REVIVA LABS GLYCOLIC FACIAL CLEANSER. I WOULDN'T CALL IT A MIRACLE CLEANSER, BUT IT DOES SHED THE DEAD SKIN, HELP EVEN OUT THE OVERALL TONE OF YOUR SKIN AND MAKE IT SMOOTHER AND IT'S AS GENTLE AS CETAPHIL'S GENTLE CLEANSER. YOU SHOULD USE THAT, DAN'S BP GEL AND NUTRADERM THERAPUEDIC LOTION (ORIGINAL FORMULA).
