  1. I love it, too! I make a liver-cleansing smoothie with apple, lemon, ginger, flax oil, tumeric and a bit of cayenne pepper (takes a bit of getting used to but I like it spicy). Great for the whole bod and good for circulation which must be good for skin!
  2. That is EXACTLY what I had. I've stopped the BP and switched to Neutrogena and now everything is great. In fact, (knock on wood) my skin looks almost perfectly clear and glowy. Thanks for the info!
  3. Do you remember where you read about the others so I can check out that thread?
  4. I'm using all Dan's products!
  5. Hey guys, Today is my 6th day on the regimen. I was totally expecting redness and peeling while getting used to the the BP but I've had a weird and unexpected reaction. My forehead and sides of my cheeks have broken out in tiny tiny skin colored bumps. It's not especially dry or peeling (I do have some other normal-type peeling and dry skin and this seems different), and it's not even especially red. In fact, in dim light it looks almost normal but at other angles you can clearly see tons o
  6. I know there has been some talk about taking Niacin or Niacinamide internally to clear up skin. I've been doing a bit of research about it (in my opinion so far niacinamide is the way to go) but I also came across this idea to use it externally as a mask. http://www.skingeek.com/generic-niacinamid...-at-home-masks/ Turns out some skin care lines are beginning to use Niacinamide as an ingredient in their products (Olay has it as the second ingredient in their Total Effects cream) I'm gonna t

  8. Actually, I already use BHA 2% from Paula's choice. I like it but the effects don't last long with my rate of flaking!
  9. I know exactly what you mean. I've been using Ziana for 4 months and my forehead is "glossy" to be sure. It drives me crazy and I don't know how to fix it. Just like you described, the pores on my nose (and blackheads) have actually gotten worse. Only on my nose and in the "nose creases" on the sides. All I can think is that maybe they are more open due to so much exfoliation? I'd also love to know what your derm says.
  10. I've been on Ziana (.025% tretinoin) for about 5 months, and had used Green cream level 9 for 9 months before that. My skin is looking pretty good as far as acne is concerned but I have so much flaking! It's not just big flakes and peeling skin like I was experiencing during the adjustment period, this happens throughout the day. I can wash (and moisturize) in the morning and put on makeup and by 1pm I can see tiny flakes and "texture" covering large areas of my skin, especially around my mouth
  11. I have a feeling that you would just increase the time span of the "adjustment period". It might be milder but last longer so it's up to you. You should ease into any retinoid anyway to let your skin get used to it, but I'm guessing your doc will have you start applying every third or every other night to start out. Basically, all the acne you currently have under your skin will come to the surface just so yes, it will suck for a while. Try to think that every zit you get, you would have got
  12. Hi Lion Queen- Just wanted to say a quick thanks for sharing all your wisdom on this site. I've always had pretty mild acne, but when it continued into my mid-20's it just made me so mad! Thanks to you, I've learned a lot about my skin and that my acne is mostly non inflammatory (the dreaded bumps). I've been using and loving BHAs and I'm currently working my way into green cream which, i can already tell, is moving me in a very nice direction indeed. Best of all, I understand more about h
