  1. Niacinamide is an active ingredient in Olay Regenerist products: http://www.olay.com/skin-care/skin-care-sc...75-83628fc39a0f This is what i'm using right now. Here's the ingredient list: http://www.olay.com/skin-care-products/ant...id=075609007415 So if you want nice smooth skin and at the same time treat your acne, then you can buy this over the counter in any drugstore. It's not expensive especially if you get a coupon from CostCo.
  2. Looks like they raised the prices of their devices. Last time I looked the two combined costs $75.95 but it's free shipping (not sure if the prices in Feb includes free shipping). Their website looks very amateurish but it is very informative, perhaps to make up for the cheap design of their website. I guess that's why they can sell their devices far lower than their competitors plus they don't advertise. Any results from users?
  3. I almost bought this but I hesitated because I think I prefer to get the Tanda which is more tested by consumers and is FDA approved. You can check out some threads by posted by users at www.essentialdayspa.com and also on Amazon.com. I have been regularly getting cystic acne that past weeks and they take forever to get rid off. Before one subsides a new one appears. I thought I'd get a Zeno or a Thermaclear to destroy these damn pimples in a quickie but then I came across the ANSR (and its
  4. Jojoba "oil" is not recommended for oily skin, is it?
  5. This is an article from 2008 http://www.allure.com/magazine/2007/08/Acn...?mbid=yshine_pf PubMed http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/1730024...Pubmed_RVDocSum Buy here http://www.coleparmer.com/catalog/product_...asp?sku=8813390
  6. Here are some reviews I found: http://www.makeupalley.com/product/showrev...rand/Treatments http://www.essentialdayspa.com/forum/viewt...d.php?tid=32469 http://community.qvc.com/topic/Beauty-Bant...;#msg5800796080
  7. If you have sensitive skin and you want something mild, I vouch for that Thayers Rose Petal Witch Hazel Alcohol-Free Toner with Aloe Vera and Vitamin E. Check out the reviews: All 5 stars http://www.vitacost.com/Thayers-Rose-Petal...#ProductReviews http://www.mothernature.com/shop/detail.cf...&zmap=40071 http://www.sustainablescoop.com/2008/03/13...-jenni-simmons/ http://www.amazon.com/Alcohol-Free-Petal-W...r/dp/B00016XJ4M http://www.iherb.com/productdetails.aspx?c...mp;utm_medium=f
  8. Hmmmm....you will rub it all over your face everyday so there is a very good chance it will get in your eyes. Your eyes should be closed the entire time and after it has been rinsed off. Does the risk outweigh the reward (potential blindness vs. potentially good skin), u be the judge.
  9. Are you guys not concerned about Chlorhexidine?
  10. So any update on this Cyclic Nano-Silver soap on their acne? Where can I get this cheap? Amazon sells a sample but the shipping cost almost as much.
  11. (To the moderator: This is not advertisement so don't delete my post. FYI, I have made lots of contributions on this board. At least have the courtesy to send me a copy of my post so I can reword it. I just like to know the results of people in the forum who actually used it) Has anyone used this product/invention? According to the website, it can be used to treat acne. It has many uses as well, ie. deodorant, insect bites, skin irritations, etc. The website is crummy though, it doesn't loo
  12. It has been over 2 years. Does anyone using this nano product had any update for us?
  13. You should only take antibiotics for a month. Eventually, you will develop a resistance to it and the bacteria will be immune. That's why it will stop working after a while. In which case, it is advised that you take a hiatus on antibiotics after a month or two. Or you can ask your doctor to give you a different prescription the next go round. I have been applying a topical clindamycin for a while and it fairly helped but after a while it stopped working. I also combine this with differin
  14. Looks like that this PDT works for most people for acne. My derm told me that I have sebaceous gland hyperplasia which can be mechanically treated by laser or electrocauterization. He did not mention about PDT but based on what I read, PDT works for both SGH and acne which is good since I have acne and this would be like killing two birds with one stone. He does not perform mechanical treatments so he referred me to another clinic. He also mentioned that the procedure is not covered by insur
