  1. I just posted this exact thing in a similar topic in the over-the-counter forum, but am replying to this one as well just in case people don't normally look through those. Last week I bought the exact same stuff Christian is talking about, De La Cruz 10% sulfur ointment, and I got it from Walgreens and it has made the MOST DRAMATIC difference in reducing my acne than anything I have ever tried. I wash my face morning and night with neutrogena daily scrub and then apply the sulfur ointment both
  2. Last week I bought the De La Cruz 10% sulfur ointment from walgreens and it has made the MOST DRAMATIC difference in reducing my acne than anything I have ever tried. I wash my face morning and night with neutrogena daily scrub and then apply the sulfur ointment both morning and night. I do not use any other moisturizer or toner or anything with it. I've read some people complain that it dries their skin out, but it doesn't do that to me at all. I would typically have a pretty greasy face b
  3. I don't know if the AHA is intended to be strictly a moisturizer, but that's how I use it. I put it over my entire face. It's the only thing I've ever used that practically gets rid of all the flakiness from using benzoyl peroxide. And it's consistency is about what your typical shampoo is like (a little runny, but not too much).
  4. I've had acne since high school, it didn't go away when I went to college, I've tried about all the silly things I've read about to get rid of my acne, so on and so on. About half a year ago I thought I'd try Dan's AHA+ lotion, and I'm pretty sure that's what was the big breakthrough for me. Basically, I follow dan's regimen (twice a day I wash my face, then add benzoyl peroxide, then moisturize), but like I said I think it's the AHA as a moisturize that helps the most. The Products I use: F
  5. I've been trying yogurt and it helped a lot in the beginning but never knew if I should leave it for 5-15 minutes or leave it on overnight while I sleep (I've heard to do it both ways). Anyway, is your live culture yogurt just the same plain yogurt you can buy at the grocery store? With the coffee, do you just brew up some coffee, let it get cold, then smear it on your face? Where did you hear that coffee helps with acne?
  6. I work at an elementary school as the tech guy and everyday I see little kids with perfect skin, and a lot of them probably only take one shower a week. I wanna know what makes kids with perfect, flawless skin get zits a few years down the road. Puberty is the obvious answer, but what is it about puberty? I don't really expect anyone to know what answer I'm looking for, I'm just putting my thoughts down.
  7. I hear a lot that what works for one person might not work for another. I'm thinking that your genes play a good role in if a person gets acne or not, so if people have similar body types (tall, eat whatever you want and don't gain weight, etc.) than maybe they'll have similar results with getting rid of acne. I'm a 23 year old male, 5'11'', 150 lbs, I can eat and eat and not gain a pound. Not meaning to sound gross, but I have one or two BMs a day. I'm only saying that because my girlfrie
  8. I use Dan's regimen and wash my face, then use BP, then moisturize. After I use the BP my face is fine until I start smiling or talking a lot, then the areas around my mouth flake and peel pretty bad. I use a moisturizer which gets rid of it, but it always comes back the next time I wash my face and put more BP on. I've tried the baby brush thing but it doesn't seem to smooth out all the flakes. I'm just wondering if there is anyway to put a stop to the flakes, or if I shouldn't worry about
