  2. stuff i've learnt about acne and some of my thoughts regarding the subject. -researching acne is 100% important when trying to "cure" yourself. there is different types of acne. all have specific treatments. (some skin problems are not even acne) - it important to educate yourself on post acne marks & acne scars + how to treat them. it is easy to mistake post acne/ skin damage for active acne. -sodium lauryl sulfate (aka "SLS" for short) is an ingredient in most acne soaps but shoul
  3. 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
  4. Hey all! I recently found that I most probably have fungal folliculitis on my face. I think it came when I first tried the OCM method which did not work for me at all. I guess my pores got clogged? Anyway I started treating it with Nizoral and Head and Shoulders Classic clean, alternating every 2 days or so. I have been doing it properly since friday (before that I wasn't absorbing everything so doing it wrong for 2 days). Things seem to be improving but not as fast as I had hoped. I have JR P
  5. Ive heard some very good things about oil cleansing, and some very bad things. Some people seem to say that after a while,(few weeks, months) they get clogged pores/breakouts/dry skin I was wondering if it's because oil cleansing is more like exfoliating,(removing deep oils in skin/massaging dead skin), and exfoliating often or everyday will dehydrate your skin. or do oils, specifically olive oil, clog pores?
  6. I use to use retin-a 1% every night, for about 4 months straight I'd say. The peeling never went down, i would exfoliate daily by rubbing in tons of moisturizer, continuing to rub until the dead skin pilled up, then lightly rubbing in circular motions all over with a face cloth. This would tend to get the worst of it, although it would leave my skin raw, not so much because it was red but it would sting when I applied toner and moisturizer afterwards, even though my toner is alcohol free. But
  7. Whenever I exfoliate with a washcloth I'm gentle as possible but still my face gets irritated it gets really oily and I see fine lines that weren't there before...I even tried with my fingers I had same results chemical exfoliates do same thing..so I decided to massage gentle cleanser morning and night and no irritation but will this keep dead skin away ? what I do is splash lukewarm water on face then massage cleanser then when it's all off I splash face with cool water
  8. good evening or day, recently thought about using green papaya powder to exfoliate my skin. am curious if anyone has tried it here. if there is a thread that discusses this please direct me to it. thanks. Found this online...
  9. Hey all, I have been looking on the forums, and the internet and I have found little information to manually get rid of dead skin cells and gunk off your skin, I know AHA can do the job, but to me it doesn't actually 'move' anything. Except for the jojoba oil trick, does any one know of any tricks to exfoliate which complies to the regimen? Thanks!
  10. I finished accutane in early April (in two weeks it will be 7 months after my course). Also, it's been 8 months into my water only regimen. The only thing I do is using shaving cream when I'm shaving. Recently, I bought an exfoliator (Neutrogena) because I was having some problems with dead skin and whiteheads (2). I never ever get pimples since I've finished accutane. BUT, I've bought the cleanser in the same line as the exfoliator from Neutrogena, because I still have red marks and since the c

  15. Ok. so the other day I purchased the Olay Pro-x Spin Brush. 32$ its like a clarsonic brush thingy. I used it last night and this morning and I have to say that first: I LOVE the way it feels. so soft and gentle Second: I was really worried about the exfoliation making my skin worse, especially since I had picked at a few spots before I used it.. BUT..it didnt! If anything it made them better. I also had a place on my check that was staring to hurt and get red which ment I knew I was about to h

  20. Hello everyone, Spring break i suffered with a hormonal break out that left me with a few indented scars that are a mix between boxcars and icepicks. Anyways, Currently i have been applying tea tree oil to the scars to make that skin dry out and cause it to peel the next day. This has caused the scarred skin to dry out forcing the skin to peel. It is helping immensely to "fill in" or create new skin to replace the existing dried scar tissue once it peels off. I thought that this needed to be a
  21. 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?

Any comments or suggestions would be appreciated!

  25. So 'The Regimen' has successfully cleared up all of my acne, however I still have dark scars and marks on my face that I'd like to get rid. I want to get a PMD (Personal Microdermabrasion) becuase I've heard many people say that it has worked wonders for them in terms of getting rid of acne scars, however I'm wondering if this will conflict with The Regimen. Has anybody ever used this before with The Regimen? If so, how did it work? At what point in your daily / nightly routine did you use
