  1. Yeah..I did! All I did was use water and even after a workout or a game i would just use water. At first it is really awkward and you'll feel dirty..but then you kinda get used to it and your skin feels and looks better by the end of the first week. I currently don't use a sunscreen..because most of the products available break me out..but there are a lot of safe sunscreen lotions out there..check out you're current product on www.cosmeticdatabase.com and the alternatives.
  2. Ignore the a-hole who posted above me....you're still 16 so it's very possible that you can grow in the next couple of years...drink milk,eat healthy,play a lot of sports and you should grow taller. You're height will be determined by genetics and your environment. So don't sweat it..boys grow till they are about 21...you still have a long way to go.
  3. AudiTy : Ok here is a list of products that I am currently using: Body wash/face wash/after shave toner/balm :Dr. Bronners magic Castile (lavender/Tea Tree/Eucalyptus/baby oil soaps) Shampoo: Avalon Organics peppermint shampoo Conditioner: Avalon Organics lemon verbena conditioner.

Toothpaste:TOM'S OF MAINE NATURAL TOOTHPASTE WITH PROPOLIS & MYRRH, SPEARMINT Shaving cream: Tom's of maine natural condit
  4. Actually LionQueen, your absolutely right about dr.bronners soaps being 'pretty alkaline'...but they also add Citric acid in their soaps as a preservative. Citric acid is an acid ,a AHA and acts as a toner and skin lightener. i haven't been using Dr.bronners soaps for very long (almost 3 months now) but I must say that I'm a happy with the ingredients in their castile soaps and the results i've had with them. I'm not endorsing the product ...I'm just saying that it worked for me. Citric ac

  6. Well again, if you read my earlier posts you would have seen that I washed with just water and it did "clear me up" completely. But i still had red marks left from acne that i wanted to clear up. I have changed my whole arsenal of products and don't have any problems with the current products that I am using. After the first month that my acne cleared up I introduced Bronners soaps slowly to see how I would react and then when my skin didn't i continued with them. After about two weeks my red ma
  7. That's true ...But I also used Neutrogena's Deep Clean Toner and their Oil free cleanser. I didn't give a complete break down of all the products I was using. But for your info, in my Colgate regular mint toothpaste..they used sodium laureth sulphate, in my palmolive body wash they used parabens and SLS, in my pantene shampoo they used SLS, in my Nizoral anti dandruff shampoo they used SLS, in my shaving creams they used parabens, in my deodorant they used propelyne glycol. I never said they
  8. I have never used the bar soaps...but I've never had any problems with the liquid soaps. I also have very oily skin and happen to live in a very hot humid climate. When i use bronners soaps my skin is neither oily nor dry ..it feels just right. Also maybe you're using too much of the stuff ..your only supposed to use a couple of drops of the stuff at one wash. And oh yeah...it does lather.
  9. Hey man, this worked for me...just washing with warm water in the morning and warm water in the evening. If i could give you one piece of advice.. after you wash with warm water follow up directly with cold water...it should take you about a month or so for your face to clear up..it took a month for me.Anyways hope this helps.
  10. For the majority of people suffering from acne it's hormonal...cause when a person hits puberty their hormones start acting up ...and when you mix it with products that contain chemicals that mess with your hormones ....you can definitely expect skin problems. If your products are working for you and you are happy with it, then stick with it. "Never mess with something that is working for you"
  11. Well, because I don't know how your skin will react to the new products. The thing is I cleared up my acne by going cold turkey and then introducing products that i had researched thoroughly and then started using them. By not using any products on your face...your face will clear up..then you can experiment with new products to see how your body responds.
  12. Well give me a rundown of the products you've used and are currently using ...Also if you only have the occasional zit then just spot treat the area and leave the rest of your face alone.
  13. Duchamp - First off....what products were you using prior to trying Dr.bronners soaps and what products were you using in conjunction with Dr.bronners soaps. A lot of the ingredients don't mix well with other ingredients. After all these are all chemicals..some mix and some don't ! I have attached a link to give you more information about your current neutrogena products: www.cosmeticsdatabase.com/browse.php?brand_id=434&category=bar+soap In my opinion AVOID NEUTROGENA products like t
