  1. Any updates from any users on low dose? I've been doing it for 5 years but I had to stop because of back and joint soreness noise and pain
  2. sebacia does not work. i tried it. no affect on oily skin! the only thing that has worked is low dose accutane, but unfortunately, it hurts my joints too much.
  3. Has everyone used azelaic acid to help with cystic acne? Is it better than benzoyl peroxide? I am thinking about adding the ordinary 10% to my routine every other day to keep my monthly chin pimple away. Any thoughts?
  4. I don't have acne anymore but I an prone to cystic acne because I have oily skin. Would a topical like tretinoin or adapalene help with super oily skin? anyone experiences? thanks
  5. I tried this straight for 2 weeks. At first it did feel very matte, but I was extremely oily again after 2 hours.
  6. I think 10 grams a day helped with my oily skin a bit, but when I cut down to 5 grams the oily skin came back but for the past 2 months I have had no cystic acne. miracle.
  7. the healing ointment as Lanolin alcohol... which is comeodogenic?
  8. The lip repair or the healing ointment?
  9. That's great. But I don't see a direct correlation for me. When I was living in Asia, I only drank bottled water and my country had no flouride in the water. Here in California, there's tons of flouride. The breakouts are the same and only on my chin occasionally.
  10. 10 grams a day, but I cut down to 7.5 grams in a week and will try to stay around 3-5grams depending on how oily my skin gets. So far so good and it's been only 6 days. It's not making me completely oil free, but I do notice about 50% less already, which is great. However, I defnitely don't want to keep it at 10 grams a day. The less the better.
  11. I have been using EOS lip balm for years and i just realized it has pore clogging ingredients. I only get acne around the lip and mouth area and chin. Sometimes on my lip!! so it makes sense. I also trued Vaseline lip balm but I dislike it the shine. Anyone have any ideas on what lip balm works for them with no comedegenic ingredients?
  12. I have very oily skin at 31 years old. But I do not break out on my forehead or cheeks. I only break out once a month or two with one or two deep cystic pimples on my chin or lip. Some months I am completely clear. I am male. Could this be hormonal acne? If so, what can I take to treat it? My diet isn't the best, but I don't think there's a direct link between diet and acne for me because some months Im completely clear.
