  1. Willow, just found a good answer why salt can cause acne. "Blood-salt levels are about as strictly regulated (30%) as blood-glucose levels, but unlike excessive sugars, which can be easily stored as glycogen in the liver or muscles or eventually as glycerol in adipose tissue, there is no such storage place for salt. That is why the body tries to eliminate that excessive salt / spices by excreting it into urine and through sweating. But to sweat this salt out, it is first IN the skin, where it
  2. Is iodized salt the same as table salt? I use table salt to anything almost, perhaps that could linger acne more.
  3. How much is the shipping cost to Sweden (Europe) and how long time is the shipping approximatley? /AWA
  4. I thought that we could start a list of food products that causes breakouts. Of course it´s very individually but it could be intresting to see what type of food that causes breakouts. I will start by my list and please try to keep this thread fairly clean. - Chocolate - Dairy products - Orange juice /AWA
  5. Brandy, do you have anything to add? I found a good face wash at my pharmacy. What do you think about this one, I have listed the substance below. ACO 01 CLEAN Cleansing face wash; Aqua Disodium Laureth Sulfosuccinate Sodium C12-15 Pareth Sulfate Cocamidopropyl Betaine Glycerin Sodium Laureth Sulfate Laureth-3 PEG-7 Glyceryl Coacate Salicylic Acid PEG-150 Distearate Piroctone Olamine PEG-3 Distearate Bencoic Acid Zink Sulfate Fat: 1,25 % /AWA
  6. I am still very indignant over my breakout which I had for a couple of days ago so I just wanted to see if I am using the regimen properly. I do use another BP which contain 5% so you know. Morning: Quick Shower Apply the BP (~)2min) Moisturize (~1min) Night: Quick Shower Apply the BP (~)2min) Moisturize (~1min) I am really pissed of because the breakout I got gave me hugh pimples (some cyst? )which is fairly unusual for my skinn. I am on the edge of quiting but that would be 4 weeks of waste
  7. I am on my 25 day at the regimen and just like that I got a breakout on my whole face, perhaps 8 pimples, huger than ever (?). I have eaten good and all that so it can´t be that. Does anyone know why I suddenly got a breakout, seems very weird to mee /AWA
  8. I am wondering, how huge difference is it between BP 2.5% and BP 5% when you are using a smaller amount of BP 5% to compensate the amount of the 2.5% (2.5% = lighter). /AWA
  9. Well, there are many factors involved. - How does your nutritiuon look, do you consume large amount of milkproducts? - How old are you? - Are you on the regimen? Use a needle instead of picking in your face. Torched the needle before using it. /AWA
  10. There is studies showing that milkproducts have an effect on acne. J Am Acad Dermatol. 2008 Jan 12. Dermatol J. 2006 May 30;12(4):1. /AWA
