  1. I have combination skin, (oily in t-zone and dry on cheeks) I exfoliate twice a day, is that to much? my skin is so oily and even after applying an oil-free moisturiser after exfoliating ( I heard oily skin is due to over-excessively dry skin ) hence the moisturiser. I'm going to cut back to exfoliating once a day in the evening but what do I use in the morning?!?! I dont know wether I should buy a cleanser but I have no idea if that helps and what even is it? I would really appreciate some advi

    Exfoliation Cream?

    Anyone know a good cream to exfoliate the face? Does it even help with acne? I get pimple about an inch below my lower lip on each corner of my chin, no where else. Looking to purchase something at wal mart. Thanks
  3. Does anyone have experience dry brushing their skin with a baby brush? I'd love some details.
  4. After using an AHA+BHA facewash, i notice my skin is getting shiner, it is a tiny bit oily but after i clean it, the shine is still there. It's not only on my t-zone but also on my cheeks. Is it possible that my facewash cause over-exfoliating?

    Day 43: Holding My Breath

    Well, after some much needed moisturizer and jojoba, my skin is back on its way. The swelling is completely gone, and the redness has gone down significantly. Also, the popped areas are still healing. They're not completely gone, but they're looking a lot less angry! I did have to exfoliate with jojoba oil this morning, though. I rubbed a good amount of it between my hands and massaged my face with it in the shower. It works better for me when my flakes are wet; they just come right off
  6. I have a kitten that is about five months old now and he often crawls on my chest and licks my face. It's annoying, but I let him do it one day. Let me just clarify that the results from the cat licking my face were incredible. My skin was an extremely smooth canvas and my blackheads on my nose were almost unnoticable. Maybe a cat's tongue is a miracle exfoliater? Cats use their own tongues to clean any impurities on themselves, so why wouldn't it work for scrubbing and deep-cleansing the pores
  7. Hello, I have been looking for a salicylic acid-based exfoliator for my face. I have heard great things about both Stridex Maximum Pads and Paula's Choice BHA products. Does anyone here have experience with either product, and if so, could you tell me about your experience? I have normal to oily skin. Price isn't an issue. Thanks!

    Ivory Soap + Back Scrub?

    So for like 5 months now, I have been showering with Ivory soap and a shower brush to scrub the dead skin cells off my back. And to my surprise, Ivory didn't break me out, in fact now I get less lesions on my back. However, I still have some remaining lesions. But I think the scrub should get more credit than the Ivory soap. Exfoliating my back everyday really helped. But that's just me. I was thinking about trying the Antibacterial Cetaphil Bar Soap. Has anyone tried it so far
  10. Hello, im new here. Ive read so much about exfoliation and how important that is for you, espeacially if you have acne prone skin like i do. Now, the thing is that i cant find the answer on how to exfoliate the areas on your face where you have facial hair grown, a beard for example. Shaving is one tip yes, but i prefer having beard. Are there any good ways of doing it? And also, how can i be sure that i have done it right? I mean, when i exfoliate my nose, around the nose, cheeks, foreheard etc

I've been on this water only regimen for 6 so weeks now and the dead skin cells are becoming an issue. without exfoliating, dead skin cells arise, and whenever i exfoliate with a washcloth REGARDLESS OF HOW GENTLE I AM I ALWAYS F**KING BREAK OUT. WTF.... i refuse to go back to using products. I need assistance. do help me, I have had enough of this turmoil i need to move on now. LITERALLY MY NOSE FEEL LIKE GRAVEL AND THANKS TO MY WASHCLOTH WHICH I USED 10 SO HOURS AGO I NO
  12. Right, so I have been suffering from these bumps across my forehead for about 6 months. I've tried benzoyl peroxide in hopes that it would clear away these bumps for about 1 month. It dried up my skin completely although did not remove the bumps. I'm starting to think that it is some sort of folliculitis as they first started across my hair line and gradually moved towards between my eyebrows and a few near my nose next to my cheeks. I've tried Nizarol and this has cleared up the bumps to some e
  13. I just want to start off and say this is the first time I've ever made a forum post, I am new to this website. I'm going to include some pictures of what my skin looks like right now. (Yes I am wearing makeup in the pictures and that's not something I can really stop doing as I'm very into makeup and don't feel as confident without it) Basically I have very noticeable bumps around my chin area, on sides on face, and forehead area. Pretty much everywhere but they are very bad on my chin area. I'm

    Scrubs & The Regimen?

    Hey. So if you've been following my posts for awhile you'd know that I struggle with acne and flaky skin. I've been on the regimen for 8 months now, and it's really the only thing that's gotten my acne under control. Dryness however has ALWAYS been a problem since starting the regimen. Nothing has really cured the flaky skin yet. I have a question about scrubs... Since I have a lot of dead skin cells, is it okay to exfoliate every week or so? I have relatively sensitive skin, so I don't want to
  15. Aczone and atralin 10 weeks in: Flaking and dry patches mainly near chin area but not breaking out there. Breakouts occur mostly on lower cheeks, with widespread closed comedones. Lots of hyperpigmentation. I have pics posted in the gallery. I think the main issue here is the flaking, which is probably why my skin hasn't improved very much. I haven't been exfoliating these past few weeks and i feel like its something I need to incorporate into my regimen. I just haven't found a gentle, effect

    Dry skin

    the problem now is that my face is very dry, i can feel like a layer of dead skin just accumulated on top of my lower part of the face. I want to exfoliate it so bad, but i shouldn't according to the regimen. and yes i do follow the regimen instructions diligently so i do use enough lotion by Dan and i have ordered the jojoba oil and AHA as well (didn't use yet). But it so disturbingly flaky. like around the mouth area and chin. also on the forhead. and those areas seems a bit dark as well. btw
  17. Hi ever since I started using the AHA it seems that my face is either slightly red all over or slightly darker pigment than the rest of my face. Am I using too much AHA? I used about an index fingers work just as I do the benzoyl peroxide.
  18. I wore makeup today! I thought my face was clear enough to wear some concealer and foundation. However, after the acne.org moisturizer, I put on some concealer on the red spots and foundation. I realized that my skin was super dry and flakes of skin was falling like snow flakes. My skin looks horrible with makeup on,and the red spots are visible because they look purple. I am not sure if I need to exfoliate to remove the dry skin and to have a smooth complexion. Please help any advise would do
  19. I am on week 6 of Ziana. My whiteheads are surfacing. Would it be ok to exfoliate while on Ziana?
  20. Now I know you guys missed me, it's been so long since my last entry, so here's a quick bullet-point entry to bring me back up to date (hehehe); Today: I did not go to the shopping centre and buy all the things I meant to (blender for smoothies/margaritas, sieve and mixer for baking chocolate-chip biscuits, non-comedogenic makeup, toothpicks) I did not wash my spare towels, or do my ironing, or go to the supermarket and buy healthy (or indeed any) food I did not go for the 8 km jog I wanted
  21. Hello, I have a thick layer of dead skin that I can't seem to get rid of, it has been accumulating, especially on my forehead, in-between my eyebrows and on my nose. When I get out of the shower it softens up and it is much more noticeable, like a white cast on my face. When it dries it isn't as noticeable but it has a rough texture. Has anyone else had this problem? I have looked it up and found others with the same problem but it always leads to a dead end. I've tried moisturizing with Ce
  22. Hi, I was wondering if anyone tried this product and if it clogs pores its a enzyme peel gel to get rid of dead skin alot of good reviews, but it has the ingridient isophropyl myristate which is high in the comedogenic list but its at the way bottom 15tg ingridient out of 17 would this clog pores or cause breakouts thanks.

    Best Method I Ever Tried!

    Hey everyone! So I've posted a few topics here over the years about my face routine. However, as of about a month ago, I came across the best, BEST method I've ever used. So much better that I'm never going back to a regular cleanser ever again. Oatmeal. That's it. Regular, PLAIN quaker's oatmeal. I always liked the idea of natural remedies for the face, but didn't think they'd ever work. Some information on me. I'm a 20 year old female. I had moderate to severe hormonal acne
  24. Hi, I'm male and I have a lot of small whiteheads with the size of a small pinhead. These small whiteheads are underneath my skin for several days or weeks, until a small white and tight globule (which contains the tallow) comes to the surface and fells of. This would lead to an increased pore which will shrink more or less over the next couple of months. I'm from outside the US and in my country I can’t order the products from Acne.org. But I tried some kind of the Regimen within the
