  1. Hmm the explanation in your second quote makes sense. Will see if I can find some info on how SSRI`s affect the endocrine system. I thought it was minimal but maybe i`m wrong.
  2. Hi, I had moderate to severe acne from my 17 unit now (i`m 24). In that time, like many of us, tried numerous things to get rid of it, all with little succes. I tried all the topicals, supplements, antibiotics but nothing ever helped. A year ago, i was prescribed Prozac (fluoxetine) for my anxiety and depression. I started taking it, and soon I noticed a drastic improvement in my skin. It wasn`t as oily as it used to be, the blackheads stopped appearing and the inflammations reduced quickly. It
  3. I think i have to agree on this allthough i find it hard to understand. I think its more complex then just cortisol. Anxiety and stress can mess up a lot more in your body. I`m taking klonopin for my anxiety disorder for a couple of weeks now, and my face has never been as clear as it is right now. Its now only my view, my family members and friends also noted it. I`m not eating very well and i`m not doing anything with my skin other than washing it once a day. So it has to be the reduced anx
  4. The probiotic will not make the antibiotic less effective. The antibiotic will probably undo all the positive effects from the probiotic though... I would wait until your antibiotic treatment ends, and then use a good probiotic to restore your gut flora
  5. When i quit smoking (after 3 years) my skin got a lot better. I notice that my skin really heals faster and the cysts i sometimes have in my neck are way less as they are used to be when i smoked. For anyone trying to quit; read the book from Allen Carr, really helps you to quit smoking!
  6. What a nonsense. The only link that might make some sence is that acne is aggrevated by hormones, and hormones make you want to wank off more often. Not the other way around.
  7. I was wondering if i can keep the green smoothies in the fridge for a couple of days, so i dont have to make one every morning? Or will this cause some elemental vitamins to go away? If so, for how long would you recommend to keep them max.? Thanks
  8. Accutane (Isotretinoin) is a retinoid. As far as i know most topical retinoids are actually stronger then isotretinoin but because you take isotretinoin orally it works different (maybe better) then the topical retinoids do. And i think differin cream 0.1 is the mildest topical retinoid looking at the severity of the side effects yes. I use differin gel 0.1 which only dried out my skin a little in the first couple of weeks. The cetaphil hydrating lotion fixed that well.
  9. Depends on the product. AHA and BHA products are proven to prevent skin aging also at the long term. Topical retinoids like differin do that also. BP i think is not good for your skin at the long term
  10. IF YOU HAVE LOOKED 10 SECONDS ON THIS WEBSITE YOU WOULD HAVE SEEN IT IS RECOMMENDED TO PUT A MOISTURIZER ON AFTER USING BENZOYL PEROXIDE SINCE BENZOYL PEROXIDE DRIES OUT YOUR SKIN AND APPLYING A MOISTURIZER DOES NOT DECREASE THE RESULTS BENZOYL PEROXIDE HAS ON YOUR ACNE. P.S. CAPS LOCK FTW!!!
  11. Still using normaderm because my skin seems to handle it and i`m affraid to breakout if i quit it
  12. Cleansing is very important if you use acne medications. If you clean the layer of oil and dirt first, your acne medications will reach your skin and pores better, making them way better to work. Besides that, people with acne should clean the skin AT LEAST once a day to remove this oil, dirt and dead skin cells to prevent the pores from clogging and forming a whitehead. Some people also state its for killing the acne bacteria, but i don`t believe that because its always there anyway... I th
  13. Friday the doctor prescripted me differin gel 0.1 (in combination with eryacne) since i don`t seem to become completely clear just using BP. I was just wondering, why is it that a product like Differin and other topical retinoids are available on prescription only, while a product like BP is considered as a medicine that is available without subscription? Does it have something to do with the fact that these products work in lower skin layers or something? Just curious
