  1. I saw a post about Epsom Salt awhile back and thought I should try it, so I tried it and it worked great for about the first 2 weeks I mix it with a 2.0% salicylic acid treatment from Avon. I have been eating terrible like tons of junk food, ice cream etc. which I usually don't eat at all that could be the reason why it hasn't been working as good but that's the point am I supposed to use the Epsom Salt everyday should I do something different like wash my face one day then wash it with the Epso
  2. So after a disastrous recent run-in with my now-sworn-enemy, Biotin, months of skin-clearing progress went down the drain in a matter of 3 days. My entire face, neck, and chest were covered with oily, plugged pores, comedones, black heads, cysts...you name it. I was back to square one. After getting back on track immediately with a a full metal jacket megadose of Magnesium, Vitamin D3, Lysine, and 2 nightly sulfur masks, just about all of the active acne was gone in 2 days. However, I was lef
  3. So today is my first day of trying the acne.org regimen but since my products haven't arrived yet I will be using some of the products I have at home. Facewash: Dermalogica Ultra calming cleanser Treatment: Tretinoin cream 0.1 Moisturizer: Dermalogica Active moist with a vitamin e oil capsule to help with my scaring Last night I also started the Epsom salt soak to try and bring these cysts to heads. I'll see how this works and let yall know.
  4. Just wanted to share with everyone something that has been working wonders for me the past week. We all know that consuming sea salt over table salt is much healthier and a way to get essential minerals. Epsom salt is really great for drawing toxins out of the body when put in baths and can be used internally in small amounts as a laxative and for magnesium. I had a really terrible breakout from trying some decaf coffee last week and was desperate to clear it up somewhat. After taking a bath
  5. sooo I have been getting these dark spots on my face like underneath my mouth and in my chin crevasses. Any recommendations for a natural way of treating this? Also, what do you guys think about exfoliating with epsom salt? I'm trying to come up with a good exfoliator because I just can NOT seem to get rid of these blackheads all over my nose and chin. Any comments or suggestions would be appreciated!

    Day 2

    Day 2 of the acne.org regimen with my products and the epsom salt soak. My face is starting to dry up no new cysts or pustules. Went to the gym this morning sat in the sauna for about 30 minutes. So far so good.

    Epsom Salt Cheap Acne Fix:

    hey, this is a super EASY tip. Try disolving EPSOM SALT (salt of magneseum) in warm water. About 2 tablespoons of salt per cup of water. I have been using this as a toner acutally AFTER i moisturize, because It holds in moisture. After 5 days (of day and night use) my skin is clear of any active acne and red mars are fading and skin looks much brighter and smoother (no mirco bumps.) the reviews for epsom salt on this site are amazing, and you defiently cannot beat the price! it's super cheap and

    2 Weeks Of Topical Epsom Salts

    As per title been using Epsom salts dissolved in hot water, in shower, instead of salt, for the last 2 weeks. RESULTS 1ST WEEK Skin very good. Face was clearing up nicely. Couple of biggish ones in hair near back of neck. 2ND WEEK All went to shit. New breakouts on face. - one near ear, sideburn near temple, First spot on cheek for ages - led me to stop "experiment" - suspect it was affecting erythromelalgia so pointless if it isnt even stopping spots. Stopping after 2
  9. Hi all. I came up with a concoction in my bathroom which is greatly helping my face in its healing process, and it doesnt break me out. I started with a natural moisturizer which has essential oils in it. I found that essential oils help lubricate my skin and not only plump it up but helps stop it from making more oil and helps my scars heal. Moisturizer - http://m.beautyheaven.com.au/skin-care/moisturisers/38711-natural-instinct-daily-moisturiser So, i put a dollop of this in my hand. Next

    Hi, I am a long time reader of this forum and this is my first time actually joining and posting. I have had mild to moderate acne for about 15 years now. uggg. I am now 30 bout to be 31 and i guess now i am going to have to live with the fact that i will have it forever. When i was younger i always thought it would go away with age but no luck here. Anyway, to the point. I have very oily skin, especially my nose. Im talking after shower or just rinse my face i can start to see the puddles of oi

    Sea Salt Vs. Epsom Salt

    Greetings! I have read tremendously positive reviews for both sea salt and epsom salt: sea salt: http://www.acne.org/sea-salt-reviews-489/ epsom salt: http://www.acne.org/epsom-salt-reviews-1067/ I'm wondering from the people that use them, is one better than the other? Benefits? Differences?
  13. I had mild to moderate acne as a teenager, nothing terrible. When I was 15, a GP opened his huge book and then suggested Panoxyl Aqueous 2.5 % Benzoyl Peroxide Gel. That worked well and it kept my skin fairly clear. Then, it stopped being as effective so I began used the 5% Aqueous version. I used that pretty religiously until my skin began to clear up almost entirely during college. I would get some congestion and I'd get the occasional blemish but nothing severe and the BP seemed to work quick

    My Experience With Epsom Salt (Topical)

    I washed my face with Epsom salt after reading reviews about how it cleared up a lot of people's acne by drawing out the skin's toxins. People also say that magnesium and sulphate are great for your skin! On an aside, I also drank it once for a liver cleanse, and it tasted nasty. Something else I did was add a spoon of it to a glass of tap water for rinsing my face because I read that it can help reduce the harshness of chemicals in water (I don't know if that's really true or not). For a f
  15. I hope I posted this in the right category. I have a question about epsom salts. Various ways I have heard of it used are to put a epsom salt water soaked cloth on your face for 10-25 minutes or so, or to just put epsom salt water on your face and wash it off, or let it dry on your face or mix it with a moisturizer of sorts. I have used epsom salts two ways, mostly just on my face with a washcloth. I know this probably varies from person to person, but what way of applying epsom salt worked b
  16. K i have moderate acne ( few years) and a heavy handful of redmarks. Benzoyl 5% wash has helped me reduce my (on average at any given time) 12 pimples to 4 active ones. I was wondering if i could use Epsom salt (never tried it before) with my Benzoyl wash together? would it be too irritating? ive only heard good stuff about the salt. any knowledge would be good , thanks.

    Exercise Causes Constipation!

    ★★★Exercise Causes Constipation!★★★ One great medical myth, prevailing for 2000 to 3000 years, is that physical exercise helps in preventing and curing constipation. This false belief is still being dogmatically propagated all over the world by practitioners of Allopathy, Ayurveda and Naturopathy, and by experts in Health Education and Sports Medicine. All therapies based on this dangerous dogma are a threat to the health of many patients. I have never found any scienti
