  1. In order to get good results with my acne, how do I brew a good cup of green iced tea? I am thinking about brewing some in the morning, putting it in a water bottle, and then taking it to school with me to drink. Thnx.
  2. I want to recommend my customized proactiv regime to everyone! I have only used it for a few days and my acne is starting to clear up. Its time consuming to use it but so far its been worth it. These are the steps u take in order for best results while using it: Morning (7-8am): 1. Lightly rinse your face off with water 2. use proactive cleanser then rinse your face and dry 3. put proactive toner on a cotton pad and rub it on your face; let it dry for 10 seconds. 4. Rub a thin lair of

    Post your regimen here

    If anybody wants to make a suggestion or comment about mine, please do so. That's why I'm posting! To tell you the truth this thread is my second attempt at creating a solid regimen. My first attempt was way back in my very first post. hah For Face: I wash with a green tea soap (cold water only) and use benzamycin topical gel (Refrigerated Rx) moisturize (I'm about to change that thanks to big sis). Diet: I drink at least 10L of water a day. I'm not too strict with what I eat...I have been e

    B5 treatment log!

    Day One - 2/21/04 Alright, here we go! Background info: I am a seventeen year old female with mild acne. My skin is very healthy and nice in the areas that arent broken out, but my acne is not contained to any certain area. So when I do break out, it could be anywhere random and the red spots linger everywhere. I am so sick of waking up wondering where the next spot will appear and having to spend an hour putting on concealer all over. I am ready for a real change! I have tried every o

    Obagi Nu-Derm

    Hello all! I am brand new to the forum and wanted to share my experience with Obagi Nu-Derm. I am on week 4 and am still experiencing break outs. I am close to that time of month so I am sure that plays a part. I am a 25 year old female and have been suffering from acne for the past 6 years. Within the past 6 months my breakouts have gotten better and my skin started to clear up, however there were awful scars left behind the dark scars and even deep scars. This had me completely devastate
  6. After posting my blog post (which I will paste in below), I realized that I have no interest in blogging, LOL, and pretty much deserted it. I think I'd have better accountability at not picking and being good to my skin if it's daily/weekly/whatever thoughts quickly jotted down than via a blog post. So, here goes. This was my first post from Feb 3rd: I'm so not a blogger, but I wanted to keep track of what works/doesn't work in my fight to beat adult acne. I'm a 35yo female who has had acne of
  7. Hi there, I'm Zeru, nice to meet you. c: I've had acne since I was about ten years old. From a very young age up (until about seventh grade), I wore my hair in the same way: very long, with bangs. I still remember my first pimple, weirdly enough--my skin was totally clear except for one pimple on my forehead. Being a ten year old girl, I was morbidly embarrassed. And the solution, of course, was to hide up this pimple with those lifelong bangs I always had. Within a year or so, I had
  8. Whats really helped well is this scrub ive created. After all brown and red marks are on the skin surface, so any type of exfoliation works. This scrub works in two ways,the manual exfoliation and the mandelic acid. Scrub Ingredients: apple cider vinegar (10teaspoons) green tea (3 teaspoons) sugar (3 teaspoons) honey (just a bit for moisture) mix these in a bowl, apply to your face, VERYY VERY GENTLY scrubbing the sugar around in circular motions with two fingers. Let it dry for 30mins. When 3

    Biggest cause of back acne?

    Heey all, so I'm really wondering what the biggest cause of bacne is, or the top three. I'm currently struggling badly with it, and i seem to be doing everything right, but it just won't go away? Am i missing something? Some of my bacne may be caused by heredity, but my mom said she only got the occasional pimple on her back. Also, i wash my back twice a day, then spot treat at night, i maintain a healthier diet than i did before, i drink green tea 3 times a day, and i drink tons of water and e
  11. So, I've been breaking out like crazy the past week or so, and I've been pretty down about it. Lately I've been feeling a little fed up with bp...the bleached towels and hair, the large pores, and overall yucky texture of my skin. I've been thinking of switching my routine for a while now... Especially now that I'm preggers. I've been wanting to try something organic. Something that's actually GOOD for my skin. So I was at Target and came across these products by Giovanni. It's a detox system wi
  12. I have come to realize that these products don't help acne at all! Cetaphil is just a bunch of garbage, never should of used it. St. Ives is way too rough on the skin. It just causes more acne! I included the Muscle Milk because that makes me break out like crazy. Complete list: Cetaphil Gentle Skin CleanserCetaphil Moisturizing LotionCetaphil Antibacterial Bar SoapSt. Ive's Apricot ScrubSt. Ive's Green Tea CleanserMuscle Milk How about you?

  14. Alba Botanica Aloe & Green Tea Oil Free Moisturizer has anyone else had any experience with this lotion i tried it once and it was light and moisturizing .. how is it long term? http://www.amazon.com/Alba-Botanica-Moisturizer-Hawaiian-3-Ounce/dp/B001ET7BPS/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1324357327&sr=8-2
  15. The past four days, my face has been breaking out every few hours. I was a little sick and shivery the past two days, but I'm over that now. My skin is very dry, slightly itchy almost always, and my chin and the sides of my face are covered in zits. Some whiteheads will pop up semi-frequently, and then others will die out fairly frequently as well. Occasionally, some sort of toxic smell will emanate from my body. It happens at random times, but it's the strongest a little soon after I drink a cu
  16. I've been using AcneFree severe for a few weeks and having ok results, but last night my face itched like whoa, Ponds for Dry Skin didn't help and when I woke up and washed my face, everything seemed ok, I used the toner (which I like) and then applied the 3% BP cream from my Redness kit mixed with a little of the 10% and hoooooooooly biscuits. Acid! Acid! I washed it off using a mild soap and STILL ARGGGGHHHHH! So, I'm quitting that system today. (owie) I want to give my skin a break before I

    For the last two years I have been fighting with ACNE and the scars that are left behind Few times I have hit the wall and went on a rage. BUt since its summer I want to finally get some clear skin My problem area is on my cheecks and I HATE it because its the MOST noticable part. I dont break out on my chest or back which is good but my face is a war zone I really want to be able to go out with no worries instead of plastering make up on my face everywhere i go so that I feel some waht bette
  18. Hi there, I am a 23 year old female. I have oily skin and have been suffering (yes suffering) with the curse, the ailment, the 'monster', the whateveryouwannacallit, A C N E raincloud since I turned 17. Acne vulgaris, moderate to severe. Before then, I had a nice, clear, golden-tanned complexion. Little did I know, I would be unsuccessfully fighting my severely attacked face for the next 6+ years. I am a major google-er and have become slightly obsessed as of late with reading about acne treat
  19. I am 26 years old and I have battled acne off and on for years. Recently, though, my acne was coming back with a vengence. I had persistant acne (deep, painful cysts) on my chin and nothing seemed to help. 5 years ago I was prescribed a sulfur wash and tretinion cream. It definitely helped. However, I no longer have health insurance and I have relented to buying drugstore facial washes that are only minimally successful. I have suspected my diet for a while now but I couldn't put my finger on
  20. Okay, I have acne that has it's ups and downs. One day, I feel confident and notice a clear skin, then the next couple of days, its red and not the same. I have tried Pro-Active Clean and Clear Dan's Regimen. Dan's regimen was actually workings, for quite some time, then out of nowhere, it kinda stopped. So, my father bought me Murad. 30 dollars isn't bad for a month and I have heard some good things about it. The only thing is the "purging" process, week 2/3. So, I am gonna keep
  21. Hi i'm Lewis Just recently i changed my diet to a more healthy one. Making sure i got my 5 fruit and vegetables a day, and i can say my skin has never looked so good! I have tried all sorts of medications in the past and i'm sure most of you have. Tetracyline, BP (which was appaling for me, would not reccomend) and various other creams. None of which helped. I started balancing out my diet and drinking plenty of water and have seen a significant difference in my skin. Aside from diet i use
  22. last week was alright my skin was bad but i went to school everyday and dealt with it, but by the end of the week i ended up having three cysts on my nose.....right now my nose is huge and red with bumps and on top of that all the little whiteheads around my mouth and cheeks/ greasy skin..im going back to the derm in a few weeks, it just really sucks because i feel so ugly last night i was brave enough to go out with friends but thought about my skin the whole time i was out and i tried so hard
  23. I've been on the paleo diet for around 6 months now after having severe acne on my chin. At first I didn't notice much difference til I cut out fruit not that long ago and things started improving quite well. However now things are just getting worse again.. I think it may be after a meal with wholegrain basmati rice but that was atleast 3 weeks ago.. My diet consists of: breakfast- 2or3 boiled eggs, handful of nuts containing brazil
  24. Hi Just wanted to re post the general part of what I've been doing. I think the other version will just take too long to read for most people. Now I'm finally acne free. In summary what I have been doing: 1. No more coffee in my diet. 2. No more dairy in my diet. 3. No more diet softdrinks in my diet. 4. No more refined flour in my diet, and I am greatly reducing the amount of bread products I am eating. 5. I bought a juicer, and have my lemon juice every single morning first thing. 6. I have
  25. Hello everyone. I have finally found the best natural possible treatment you can have to help your acne. The fact is... Diet DOES affect your acne. This is very much so true. The reason why you hear so many Doctors state that diet has no affect on acne is because the dermatology papers and research were done back in the 1960's and 1970's, and they thought diet has no correlation to food. If you ask your doctor or dermatologist what causes acne, they will likely give a vague response such a
