  1. I live in Florida. It sucks. Anyways I decided to only use BP on my forehead, chin, and jawline, because I rarely get acne on my cheeks, and that's where it burns the most. It burns on my chin and around my mouth too but it's more tolerable than my cheeks. Are you saying Cetaphil cream isn't good enough? I had a really similar reaction to Retin-A, where I had discomfort all over my face no matter where I used it. Unfortunately my solution was to throw the stuff in the trash and try some
  2. The Regiment works. Most of us can acknowledge that. But what do I do when my skin is clear? I don't need to rub harsh chemicals on my new, clear skin to prevent breakouts-- then I'm fighting irritation as if it were the acne itself! Also I find that BP and other acne fighting products cause me to become unbearably oily. It's easier to cover up a few zits than to fight a complete oil slick all day long. I relapse regularly. About every two months I clear up for a few days and have beautif

  4. I think I may have this, the only thing is that while they do not disappear, using acne medications such as Clearasil's 24 Hour Vanishing Cream does diminish them. Does that mean that it's not fungal, or does the fungal react to acne medications as well (but isn't cured by it)?
  5. I have moderately sensitive skin-- I tend to dry out extremely quickly and make-up removers that aren't Vaseline absolutely tear my skin apart. What I've found is that moisturizing IMMEDIATELY after washing-- and I mean immediately-- tends to help. I wash my skin, towel off, and apply my Olay Daily Moisturizer with SPF 15 for Sensitive Skin right away. I let it sink in a bit before applying any acne topicals. If you carry your topical with you during the day (I use one that suggests I apply
  6. I don't think you're damaging your skin, so don't worry. If you were damaging your skin it would be oily, not dry. So you're merely lacking in hydration. If you're north of the equator, it's winter, and being in a heated atmosphere can cause drying even when one is NOT using 2.5%BP. I recommend getting a stronger moisturizer that is made specifically for sensitive skin. And don't forget to drink lots of water! It helps with the dryness and the blotchiness!
  7. I'm considering the same solution to my scars and clogged pores; however, I'm still not clear of acne yet (and probably never will be completely) and I'm wondering if using microdermabrasion at this time would only agitate my skin by tearing off the skin on top of my zits-- creating a bloody mess. It's happened when I use other exfoliating types of products. I'm also aware that harsh exfoliating causes oil slicks-- since oil is a natural defense against agitation, traumatizing my skin may help
