  1. tea tree oil soap for folliculitis on the legs really helps a lot
  2. Try an AHA glycolic acid lotion
  3. Get a prescription of ur derm or normal doctor for calmurid its the pharmaceutical grade of eucerin. 500ml for £6.75p or whatever they are charging nowadays.
  4. Johnsons baby top to toe so simple yet strangely more effective than any acne gels or anti-bac soaps i have tried (must be cos its gentle and doesnt strip my back of every nit of moisture and aggrevate). This plus vinegar keeps me 100% clear.
  5. Simple shine control moisturiser + zinc is good and easy to find in boots. or what im using at the moment is Hawaiian tropic sun lotion factor 15 i picked up in home bargains for £3 both are non-comedogenic and cheap and last a couple of months
  6. Just look at the ingredients of whatever you are buying and try and avoid ones that are known to be comedogenic (see list). http://www.zerozits.com/Articles/acnedetect.htm#inglist
  7. Hi after getting fustrated with the BP and AHA back regimen i decided to give this a go. Heres what I found. I tried Aplle Cider Vinegar at night times only full strength after showering and leave on till shower in the morning. The results where ok I guess still got the couple of spots but nothing amazing happened like mentioned in other posts. So then..... I went back and read the original post and tried tea tree oil(with ACV) as suggested by thread starter. This broke me out a little.... T
  8. Cheers avironeur you just reminded me about johnsons baby oil i use to use it years ago and completely forgot about it. Been looking on internet and see that boot$ (UK) sell a new version for £2 and the only ingredients it contains are; mineral oil, aloe vera and Vitamin E which all score zero for being non-comedogenic and non-irritants. http://www.zerozits.com/Articles/acnedetect.htm#inglist So im off to boots today to pick one up. Only gonna use on body though will not use on face or neck.
  9. In my never ending search for a body moisturiser to use on my back and arms without buying them and later binning them i found this list that shows what ingredients are comedogenic and irritants and which are not. Hope this HELPS it has helped me http://www.zerozits.com/Articles/acnedetect.htm#inglist
  10. Any one care to share there regimens in a little more depth that would be great thanks!!!!
  11. None of them say on the packaging, but from my experience even the extra sensitive skin cream bar broke me out
  12. I think you answered your own question there. Dont use the moisturiser
  13. So any developments with this regimen??? thinking of starting this myself but am having great success with dans AHA and BP back regimen! Wondering if i could use the vinegar method before i shower wash it off then still aplly dans aha and bp method after the shower each night?? Any thoughts?
  14. Was just wondering what active antibacterial ingredients people use/prefer?? I am currently using Dettol antibacterial soap 0.5% chloroxylenol morning and night all over body/hair/face/neck everywhere in the shower TWICE a DAY. A night i follw washing with simple oil control moisturiser on face and on back i use 10% AHA glycolic acid smoothing lotion followed by 5% BP. After 4 weeks of a constant regime i am nearly completely clear. (I take also take 45mg of zinc twice a day and eat healthy and
  15. This is true like a lot of other vitamins and minerals just do a bit of research. If you dont understand chemistry/biochemistry dont just dismiss things although i would suggest taking the isomer in the D form of vitamin b5. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pantothenic_acid And before you bounce back with a smart alec remark, i do have a masters in applied chemistry and one of my final year research projects was drug design and discovery using naturally derived acetate pre cursors for drugs.
