  1. proactiv makes a really good toner that doesn't overdry the skin. It also exfoliates pretty well because of the glycolic acid in it. I would recommend that
  2. I have been researching for acne cures for so long. Finally I came across this board and followed the BP regimen, it worked but gave me bad discoloration. So I stopped doing that and went to a derm who put me on antibiotics and topical acne meds. Helped for a while until I could no longer afford. Well the things on my face came back twice as bad!! URGGHH!! Finally I went through most of the posts on this site until I came across the one that explained how pityrosporum folliculitis is usual

    yeah I saw the informecials and decided to buy to try it out. I mainly used it on my chest. It works but its just a slight improvement. I really saw a huge improvement after 2months of using it. It's an alright product, not really a miraculous product I would say....but its worth a try
  4. I am really happy with my results ...maybe that's why the cream was so expensive...like $100...I don't think any insurance covers bleaching creams...I think that's so unfair.. If they can cover acne medications...they should also cover bleaching creams..anyways..you know the saying.."you get what you paid for.." I think in this case..it's absolutely true...I think it's so expensive coz It works. I sacrified half of my paycheck so I can pay for this cream..I am not regretting it. Please pe
  5. I have had mine for like 3 years...and now they are fading so nicely...thanks to this product and Dan's regimen... ←
  6. Yes...absolutely...I haven't had any breakouts in over 3 months.....I really thinks it does..that's why I love this product! ←
  7. Well, it's used for melasma but my derm told me that it's the best for PIHP. She told me that it works better than LUSTRA AF...after all they all have 4% hydroquinone so they should work the same way. THe instructions on say only use it once...at bed time. And the instructions specifically state that just put a little bit on each red mark and don't put more than necessary because it doesn't really make a difference. I have been applying this cream religiously every night since I bought it
  8. I swear by this stuff. It was prescribed to me by my derm. I started using it at the end of june..now it's almost the end of july and I swear my red marks are 85% gone already. People are complementing me on how great I look... IF you have the money to buy this..and can get a prescription..go ahead and buy it..it's worth all the money. I bought mine for like...$98..I know its alot but I had to ..I couldn't bear to see my face w/out makeup. Now I can go out w/out makeup and feel good. When
  9. MY mom just told me that this product contains 4% hydroquinone, 10% glycolic acid and hyaluronic acid(which is supposed to be a moisturizing agent that is supposed relieve the irritation that is sometimes associated with hydroquinone use. Apparently you don't need a prescription anymore you can go to your local pharmacy and purchase it. It's about $60-$70 I am going for it...I mean what do I have to lose...I will let all of you know how it works. I am tired of all these scars...I don't fee
  10. I know about some of the side effects of hydroquinone, but right now I think it's worth the risk.. I want to use it only at night and only on the dark spots. So I wanted to know if I could still apply benzoyl peroxide then hydroquinone after a few minutes or so. Thanks for the warning though
  11. I am trying to get rid of my dark spots as quickly as possible. Yet I am scared that my acne will recur if I stop using the benzoyl peroxide. Can I use benzoyl peroxide together with 2% hydroquinone?? I am really desperate. I was thinking I could just apply the vanishing 10% benzoyl peroxide then after some minutes or hours then I could apply the 2% hydroquinone....what do I do???Please Help
  12. Neutrogena's new blackhead eliminating astrigent....Is this any good?? I know it has alcohol (which is bad) but It also has glycolic acid..which I need for my regimen. I just started using it so i don't know if this will work or not. Current skin care regimen: Morning...wash with aveeno foaming cleanser (.5%) salycilic acid followed by the aveeno daily brightening scrub (for exfoliating) then I use the Neutrogena Blackhead eliminating astrigent (containing .5% salycil
  13. I would say about 2 days....after I ate something containing sugar.(refined or not) URGGHH Even when I drink pop...I believe I might be allergic to something not really the sugar..who knows??!! All I know is I have to cut back on all these sugary things
  14. About a few weeks ago I did an experiment. I am a sugar fanatic (literally) I love sugar in everything....I used to eat it like wow! so I stopped for two weeks..I saw that I didn't break out as much, I was surprised..then after the 2 weeks I started to eat the sugar again....breakouts like crazy...Now..no matter how much I love sugar...I have to LET IT GO.....I can not afford to have these pimples anymore...If I have to eat sugar..or something..It will be once in a while for now GOOD BYE SUGAR!
  15. I combine salicylic acid with benzoyl peroxide because it seems to work better. I came across "THE ACNE CURE"...I read it somewhere how combining salicylic acid, glycolic acid and benzoyl peroxide at the same time will work. I use the aveeno products and then I apply the clearasil ultra which contains glycolic acid and benzoyl peroxide. before applying the benzoyl peroxide use Ice cubes to slow down inflamations then apply the cream...This really works, someone try this and let me know how th
  16. aveeno products; cleanse,exfoliate, tone,contains salicylic acid then I apply clearasil ultra, contains benzoyl peroxide...seems to do the trick'
  17. I am using the regular 10%bp, although I was thinking of changing to the ultra one if it doesn't work out. Hopefully I can stay clear for a while. I do realize that once I stop using the bp, my acne will probably return so I guess I have to continue using. I researched and also noticed that some people become resistant to the drug (bp) hopefully that doesn't happen to me...anyway I pray this works!
  18. I have been wondering about the same thing...I think you can apply the hydroquinone once you feel that most of your acne is under control. I don't think it would be a good idea to put them on all together, maybe you can alternate every other day or something.......
  19. I use the bp all over my face and not just the spots because i want to prevent others from breaking out..and it really works.
  20. I need to know if anyone has tried to put on a daily brightening treatment with spf 15 for morning and afternoon and use a fade gel containing hydroquinone at night. I don't know if this will work but I am going to try it. Right now I just need something to get rid of these spots! I will keep you updated on how that goes
  21. I currently use aveeno products. They really work for my skin. I cleanse, exfoliate,tone with aveeno products then I wait 15-20 minutes before I apply the bp. I know sometimes some people recommed that you don't use salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide together. However, i tried it and it worked for me. Hopefully this helps someone. As I said now i am in the process of trying to figure out how to get rid of the dark spots I have left on my face. good luck
  22. I can honestly say I am 97%clear. I only have 2 zits right underneath my chin. I followed the regimen of assaulting bp for 2 weeks! my face is really clear, the other day i received compliments on how my skin is looking! I am now looking for some products that will help me with the hyperpigmenation....... never have I ever thought I would clear skin in my life..but I now do! I used the clearsil with 10%....I know dan's regimen says 2.5% but I couldn't find any..but it worked really well for
