  1. Hello everyone, I don't get on here often but I wanted everyone to know what has helped me with keeping my skin clear and under control. I take a probiotic called acidophilus once a day and it really helps with keeping my skin under control. It's not documented for helping clear skin but it works for me and I know of a few other people that take it for their skin as well. It does have other benefits to it also. You can get a bottle of about 60 tablets usually for about $8 at Wal-mart and
  2. I don't shave on my face b/c I'm a girl but I do shave other areas and occassionally I can get a pimple there and the cause of that is an ingrown hair infecting the area, I'm not sure if this is the cause for your problems or not but I know that using toner after shaving (i think after shaving, I don't really get anything too often after shaving so I don't really do much about it) but yeah I think using toner after shaving the area will help to decrease this problem, if it's a problem of like sm

    Birth Control

    I was on Ortho tri lo for a while and it didn't do anything for my skin, I finally just got sick of having to take a pill all the time so I switched to the Ortho Evra patch and after about two weeks I noticed it clearing my skin! But every b.c. is different for everyone so that's no promise that it'll work like that for anyone/everyone else.
  4. I posted in the other thread some answers to your questions. Hope it helps~
  5. I use the urine therapy and I also use makeup, in the mornings I apply the urine and let it dry. Once it's completely dry I just apply my makeup like I regularly do. I have never applied the urine on my face after I put makeup on. I think all that, that would do is to mix the makeup and urine, most likely ruining your makeup and probably making the urine be not as effective. After the morning I usually go most of the day with the makeup on, sometimes after work (aroud 4:30p) I wash the makeup of
  6. Are you sure the white dots aren't just scars? It kind of looked like that to me? I have a couple scars like that on my shoulders and they look similar. You said you didn't have acne in all the spots that are there so you don't think they are scars but what if you just didn't notice that you were getting scares till you got more? Or maybe you didn't notice the pimple even small insignifacnt seeming pimples have the potential to leave scars. The only other thing I can think of (though I'm certain
  7. I also forgot to say that I only apply it to my face 2-3 times a day b/c of my schedule but I'm sure that if I increased the applications it'd work even better but I'm happy with just the 2-3 for now esp. since I want to see what all my new b.c. will do also.
  8. I'm back. So I've still been doing it the urine therapy. I still get acne but it's not as bad, my main problem is that when i do get a few it takes a while for the red marks to go away so it still looks bad but i really dont' get as many pimples and all and I hardly get cyst type ones anymore so I'm happy about that. I think b/c I do still wear makeup that, that doesn't help. I think that if I stopped wearing makeup then my skin might get alot better using urine therapy. I definately do think it
  9. Hello again Jen. I haven't gotten on here in a while b/c I've had limited internet access but I just wanted to let you know that I have been trying what you said, rubbing on my face and not just dabbing and I've seen a pos. difference. I've been doing it about 3 times a day sometimes more if I find the time. My skin seems to be healing nicely, is moisturized and I have less pimples. I still get a few and I think it's because I wear makeup. When I do it and don't wear makeup like over night or ju
  10. Maybe i'll try it longer, i have been doing about 3-4 times per day but didn't really do anything than dab it so maybe i'll try what you do. I'll update later on.~
  11. So i've been trying this for like a week or something like that and I've noticed that it definately helps everything heal faster but for me it hasn't seemed to prevent new acne so I don't know if I'll be continueing to try this, it's not really making me break out more but def. not preventing/clearing anything up for me...I'm glad it's worked for you though jen! I'm going to be going on a higher dose of birth control (just b/c the patch is alot easier to remember then pills and i'm on lo for pil
  12. Has anybody used plexion? My sister was telling me about it and how she likes it. They're medicated cleansing cloths. She gave me a couple to try and they seemed to help so I want to see if I could get them but I need a prescription. My problem is I don't have a doctor and don't really want to go to one b/c I don't have any health insurance but does anyone know about the CVS minute clinic and if they might be able to prescribe something like this?

  14. yeah I definately see an improvement. the best thing is how fast my current acne seems to be healing. Things that I had gotten yesterday that would normally have lasted several days seem to be healing already. I do get the cyst ones sometimes and should have had worse b/c of my menstrual cycle but I haven't really. Usually this time for me my skin is horrible but it's healing so fast and redness is definately reduced! I'm definately going to keep trying this and see how it goes...yeah I don't th
  15. This is how I feel. I had pretty clear skin when I started dating my boyfriend but after about 1/2 a year I started breaking out again and have since then for the last 2 years. My boyfriend says he doesn't care or mind or really see anything and I know he can relate to acne b/c he used to have some as a teenager, very similar to mine actually, and he gets an occassional one here and there but nothing really. I tell him the reason he doesn't really see much is b/c of makeup but that they are ther
