  1. Has anyone experienced increased breakouts--particularly nodulocystic ones--from eating coconut oil? I know that it rates a 4 on the comedogenic scale, so it can make skin break out, if used externally. But I'm wondering if it can have the same negative effect if taken internally? Thank you, PI
  2. Hi! Long time no see (skin have been nice lately)! So I got a new face wash as a gift, first I was happy (kind of), but then I saw SLS on the ingredients and got bummed, what should I do? I can't just throw it away, how I can use it up? Btw it's Uriage Hyseac Cleansing Gel.
  3. Recently I became curious about the claim that silicone is occlusive and causes acne, so I decided to take a look at some information on it, and share it with you guys. Any thoughts? It'd be nice to see what everyone's opinion on silicones and acne is. According to Cosmetics Cop by Paula Begoun, there's scientific evidence and reasoning that shows that silicones do not suffocate skin or clog pores: "... the molecular structure of commonly used silicones makes it impossible for them to su
  4. Comedogenic: Tending to produce or aggravate acne. This post lists comedogenic ingredients and products containing those ingredients above a certain threshold. This is the BAD LIST of what to avoid in your skin care products. If you want the good list of non-comedogenic products, see this alternate post. This is purely informational. I am not making any blanket statements concerning any particular product. Use this post to inform yourself. What you choose to slather on your face is your o
  5. Dan's products have arrived! I'm so excited! I can't wait to update on how they feel/work out, but first, I have some news from yesterday: SO, I had full coverage for my performance last night. I used Bare Minerals powder, and quite honestly, I've decided that I hate the way it looks on my face. I have very oily skin, and Bare Minerals has no problem showing that. I wasn't sure why a powder would make skin oily at first; maybe because I didn't use the matte formula? Anyway, Bare Min
  6. Hello, This is my first post so I'll start with a brief history of my acne struggles: I'm 23 and have had mild to moderate acne since I was 13, on my face, neck and back. After trying pretty much 'everything' from harsh chemical washes, scrubs and nappy rash cream, nothing really made much difference to my skin. Recently I've been making an effort to eat more healthily (in the past my diet has been very poor), exercise more and drink green tea (I'd actually recommend this for general hea
  7. Hi all, Background (You may want to skip this and move to Main) I have been on the regime since May 2015, it has really cleared up the acne that I had. I have been getting inflamed acne with nasty in it all over my face (from Oct 2014- May 2015), except for my forehead. I don't know what caused them but I'm guessing it could be stress induced acne. I remember having 3-4 pimples at a time sometimes 7. During this period I did not wear any makeup, i used to wear light makeup 5 days a week an
  8. Hey guys, I dunno if I'm just being typical paranoid me, but I find that every stinkin product clogs my pores. I feel like I can never use a scar cream cause it will cause pimples, vitamin e oil is a no go, hemp oil clogs pores even though people say it has a pore clogging rating of 0, any moisturizers I try to use, even if they say non-comedogenic clog my pores. I find that all products have mildly pore clogging ingredients in them. I am now only using simple brand face wash. I was using Tamanu
  9. I've been on The Regimen for three months now. My acne has slowed down impressively (I usually got 1 inflamed pimple every 2-3 days, now if I do get one is like every month or so) the thing is my face is red. I live in a country were none of the recommended moisturizers are available (Except for Cetaphil's Gentle Lotion or whatever, but it costs almost 40USD and it contains comedogenic ingredients) .I am using a Neutrogena Oil free SPF as moisturizer , but it doesn't even moisturize. I recently
  10. is wheatgerm oil considered comedogenic? i know jojoba oil is considered similar in constituency as sebum and is considered non-comedogenic. do u guys have any idea about wheatgerm oil (used in any product like cosmetics,sunscreen)??
  11. Is Simple Kind To Skin Replenishing Rich Moisturiser non comedogenic? this pdf sais all kind to skin products are: http://www.simpleskincare.com/Uploads/FactSheets/18/FactSheetDocument_FILE/SIMPLE-MOISTURIZERS-FACT-SHEET-20120127.pdf Ingredients: Aqua, Glycerin, Coco-Caprylate/Caprate, Polyglyceryl-3 Methylglucose Distearate, Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate, Stearyl Alcohol, Butyl Methoxydibenzoylmethane, Stearic Acid, Panthenol, Polyacrylamide, C13-14 Isoparaffin, Methylparaben, 4-Methylb
  12. As said, I purchased six trial vials of the stuff on Ebay for twenty bucks (it's usually 80 online) and woke up yesterday with the cysts I used to get before Accutane--big, hard, deep, so filled with gook the pore was open. I pushed the stuff out (gross--sorry)...it seemed never-ending. It's a big swollen semi-hard wound now after (gently) using tissued fingers to push out some of the pus today. I am horrified. Maybe I just haven't been minding keeping my hair out of my face enough, maybe it

  14. I feel like I've run out of options when it comes to clearing up my persistent forehead acne. I'm a 17 year old girl and I've had acne on my forehead consistently since I was 12. I occasionally break out on my chin (right below lip, never on jawline/any of the hormonal areas - although my acne does get worse around that time of the month) and sometimes tiny bumps (clogged pores) right next to my nose. The main problem, however, is my forehead. It's this constant spattering of small, red bumps,
  15. Hey! I finally found a moisturiser that my skin can actually tolerate without getting red and making me feel like my face is going to burn off. I have seriously bad allergic skin. The only issue is, the 6th ingredient on the list is the dreaded "Isopropyl Isostearate" which ranks at a whopping 5 on the comedogenic scale. I probably wouldn't have got the product or used it on my face if I read the list first. But I haven't used it long and my face really seems to like it. I suppos
  16. what do you guys thing of this bb cream.Is it comedogenic?I use it often but i wonder if its actually not doing any harm to my skin here are the ingredient: Active Ingredient: Titanium Dioxide 20%. Ingredients: Aqua/Water/Eau, Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethicone, Stearoxymethicone/Dimethicone Copolymer, Maltodextrin, Camellia Sinensis (White Tea) Leaf Extract, Camellia Sinensis (Green Tea) Leaf Extract, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Citrus Paradisi (Grapefruit) Fruit Extract, Citrus Aurantium Ama
  17. So I've been on the search for a new toner and found Dermae (Derma E?) Vitamin A Glycolic Toner at Whole Foods. I chose it because it's list of ingredients was very short and everything was pronounceable and recognizable. I did notice, however, that there is Macrocystis Pyrifera (Sea Kelp) extract in it. I have heard that seaweed/sea kelpish ingredients are comeodogenic, though. I did some of my own research and got some conflicting answers. I'm super nervous about using this toner now! Ev
  18. Ive recently started using this brand of skin care products called primal earth mainly because it says its for sensitive skin which i have. What i want to know, is the Primal Earth Aloe Hydrate Moisturiser comedogenic or non-comedogenic ? her is the product http://www.primalearth.co.nz/primal-earth/aloe-hydrate-moisturiser
  19. I'm just become paranoid about products. I've searched high and low, for good products, but there is always something wrong with them. I don't trust cetaphil cause it breaks people out. And I thought CeraVe was good, but I suspect it causes breakouts. I'm 95% clear (knock on wood), and I don't want to compromise my skin by a dumb topical. I've switched out all my hair products to just natural non acne forming products…I actually only use two products now. I use a probiotic shower gel, I use
  20. Hello, I've been using BHA, and Tretinoin for quite a while but no moisturizer because I just couldn't find one for my skin. Somehow my skin got quite dry two weeks ago so I decided to start using a moisturizer that doesn't cause breakouts. I found the Bioderma Sebium Hydra http://www.bioderma.com/en/nc/the-products/what-s-new/product/characteristics/235.htmland start using it. Somehow I started to get some pimples and now I'm scared if that moisturizer causes it or something else. On

  22. Hello! First time post here! What ingredientes in lotions/makeups etc should be avoided? For instance, acne causing ingredients, and just bad ingredients like petrolatum and other chemicals....? I'm sure the list is ridiculous, but maybe some of the most common? I've been trying to educate myself about what I'm putting on my body. Thanks!
  23. Hey guys! I really need your help! I've been reading about argan oil and I really want to try, but some people say it could be comedogenic, while some say it doesn't block your pores at all. I intend to use it as a moisturizer. I have inflamed, and quite severe, acne, but I'm trying to get better via the natural route! (I really don't want to take accutane) So what are your experiences with argan oil? Or what have you heard about it? Does it block pores and cause more breakouts? Or does it reall
  24. Has anyone ever used Sodium Hyaluronate (to be specific a serum that contains Sodium Hyaluronate that you use for moisturizer) and what's your feedback? Ever since I used a moisturizer for the first time in my life a few weeks ago (my skin is naturally very oily), I started developing whiteheads on my right chin only (other parts are much much better). So my dermatologist changed the moisturizer into a serum which contains 3 ingredients: aqua, sodium hyaluronate and pantothenic acid (vitamin
  25. Hello,everyone!I have really bad breakouts recently,so I decided to order new acne products from the Net.I ordered them (neutrogena spot stress control 3 in 1 cleansing lotion; neutrogena spot stress control scrub) but today I saw that they've got Cetyl Alcohol. I read that this ingredient is harmful for the skin...I am so worried,because it is one of the active ingredients of the scrub.What harms I'll get on my face and will I 100% get any?What do you think?
