  1. Well, I know that accupuncture actually IS readily available in the US. You just haffta know where to look. My mom gets accupuncture for her shoulder and it's helped her a lot. I've never heard of accupuncture for skin conditions, though. I was under the impression that it was for more... internal stuff. Bone and joint problems and stuff. I could be wrong.
  2. Swimming frequently really helps my acne. A lot. My face and back are 100% clear right now because I'm in the pool and the sun almost every day. Once winter kicks in, though, I'll probably start to break out. I don't know if it's the sun or the bacteria-fighting chemicals in the chlorine. All I know is that I don't have bad skin right now! Of course, not all swimmers will have good skin.
  3. Going in the pool frequently and getting out in the sun really helped to clear up my back. Maybe it's the chlorine, maybe it's the sun, but it made my back completely clear. I also use Neutrogena BP.
  4. My skin is soft and smooth, although my nose is still oily. I've got some red marks that are slowly fading, but it's nothing I can't live with. That Neutrogena BP stuff really works for me. I use St. Ive's medicated scrub every other day.
  5. it's always worked fine for me. The key is moderation, though.
  6. I used the body acne spray. It cleared up a couple of zits, but that's it. Not worth the trouble.
  7. I've definitely noticed that using certain hair products (gel, hairspray, mouse, etc.) will cause acne on my hairline. If you use any of these, you may want to consider retiring them for a bit and seeing if that makes any difference.
  8. i love masques. I have oily skin and they really reduce the oil, redness, and inflammation
  9. apply just a little. Use moisturizer afterwards
  10. I recommend those pore-clearing strips by Biore. They're definitely NOT for sensitive skin, though. They're not a miracle, but they do help a bit. Also, i've heard that applying 100% aloe vera gel can help to reduce the "blackness" of blackheads. Hydrogen peroxide is supposed to help as well. But DEFINITELY don't do all these things at once or you'll be just asking for trouble. haha
  11. Proactiv is a load of crap. Honestly. It sucks. It made my skin worse. I've never had an allergic reaction to anything before, but Proactive sure screwed my skin up. I stopped using it after about 2 weeks and I'm gonna return it. It's waaaay hyped up.
  12. Alright, I'm one of those people with acne who has a very high self esteem (ok, my acne is really mild, but it still sucks). It's great that you have such a positive outlook on life and that having acne has helped you realize all that stuff. HOWEVER, you're making some broad generalizations there. Also, I really don't think that anyone would WANT to have acne. There are plenty of people who realize that there are more important things in a person than their appearance. Take me, for example, befo
  13. Are you guys serious? I had a horrid feel-it-coming zit/bump on my forehead yesterday. I put some toothpaste on it last night and it's completely and totally GONE today. You have to make sure that you use white, non-gritty, non-whitening toothpaste. The plainest stuff you can find. I use Colgate total. It seriously works. I mean, you can't use it as a mask or anything, that would probably make you break out. But a little drop on a spot works wonders.
  14. Yeah, some people break out in different places. I'm 15 and I have an oily but clear T-Zone and zits on the sides of my forehead. Ugh. As for the prescription stuff, I'm really not sure. Maybe you can ask the derm?
