  1. Hey, I've been treating my facial acne for a few years now, but until recently, I haven't considered what may be done to treat body acne. The body acne which I have is predominantly on my chest back and shoulders. To cut to the chase, what I would like to know is any recommendations for products to use (products which are available in England). Ideally, nothing too expensive, and ideally something in the form of a body wash (so it's easy to keep the regime up). If anyone has any recommenda
  2. Hey, For over a year now, i've been using BP; Panoxyl AquaGel 2.5 to be precise. However, my skin gets very red and very irritated. I've tried multiple moisturisers; from body shop to Vichy, and in from the lines designed for heavily dehydrated skin. So, i don't think it's the lack of moisturisation that is causing it. Although, I must express a late thankyou to this community. Over the year, my skin has improved drastically and is much more manageable. However, I'm sure you'll know the fee
  3. Moisturising if particularly important, especially if you have sensitive skin. There's no real 'cosmetic' reason for using moisturiser (in the sense that it's like make up, it doesn't make your skin look instantly better and then wear off; although continuous use can improve the skins appearance). You use it to keep your skin in good shape. Seeing as you can get some pretty cheap moisturisers that are still good, there's no reason not to moisturise day and night. E45 is cheap, and Aqueous Cream
  4. Just go to your GP and make sure everything is safe. It's probably just a coincidence that it's happening after you started using BP.
  5. I've been on the regime since last september now. I used to be really pale, but now my skin seems red-ish more often. Every so often, though, i look quite pale, and i look how i look a lot more when i'm pale. I'd like to know, which of these would be good for me, or if there are any other products that i'm over looking. http://www.expresschemist.co.uk/product_81...cream-60ml.html http://www.expresschemist.co.uk/product_81...cream-60ml.html
  6. Currently, I'm using; Boots Expert Gentle Cleanser Aquagel 2.5 BP E45 Moisturiser I've been using that for a while, and now i want to add in BHA/AHA; to clear up my blackheads, even my skin tone and speed up the fading of red marks. I've purchased some 'Avene Cleanance K' AHA/BHA gel (pretty much the only AHA/BHA you can get in the UK). The only problem is, the instructions on how to use it aren't that clear. Do i use it; After BP In place of BP (only using BP once a day) After Moisturising

  8. I'm not sure if this is the right forum, but it seems right. Sorry if it's not. Anyway, I've been clear of active acne for a while now (even when i was ill, when i would usually break out quite badly. But my face is really mottled with red spots from old acne. I'd like to know what products are available int he UK to speed up the rate at which my red marks will fade. Thankyou
  9. Has anyone had any experience with products from this place? If not, can anyone comment on some of the ingredients (i'm rubbish at working what ingredients are good/bad). http://www.bravuralondon.co.uk/index.php?m...products_id=285
  10. It's completely worth it. I'd tried a bunch of stuff before as well, and was sick of being the only person who i new, who was my age and with acne. But I started the regime, stuck to it (the first week or two can be hard at times) and it's paying off: every few days, i notice that my skin is looking better than it has in close to a decade. I really doubt you'll regret it. P.S. Expresschemist is a great website for getting Benzoyl Peroxide (Aquagel 2.5) for a great price and with really fa
  11. Before i'd even heard of the regimen, i'd managed to tame some of my acne by good shaving routine. What you need to start doing is wet shaving, the proper way. What you'll need; A good shaving brush. A good shaving cream (i've heard good things about the creams you can get from the Body Shop) A good double edged, safety razor Hot water Step One: Soak your shaving brush in hot water Step Two: Flick off excess water from your shaving brush Step Three: Whip the cream in a circular motion (eithe
  12. I actually had a really bad experience with BP and Aqueous Cream. It made a death mask of dead skin; really freaked me out and made me quite anxious. But that was in the early stages when my skin was getting used to BP. Anyway, another good and reasonably cheap moisturiser is the one by 'Simple'. It's really light and feels refreshing. I'm using it now, and my skins starting to become less red. (I think i must sensitive skin or something).
  13. I've heard good things about this moisturiser, but it irritated my skin (although i used the left over on my hands to great effect). Give it a go, if it doesn't irritate you're skin, it will be good.
  14. I'm in the 4th week, and around the areas where i use the regime, my skin is still quite red. Can anyone recommend a way to fade this? Thankyou
  15. I already drink a lot of water. Anyway, i'm gonna give sudacrem a try, it's good for rashes and stuff, so it might help. Gonna see if i can get some jojoba oil as well.
