  1. 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
  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. Hello, I've had acne for quite some time now, about 4-5 years, but only last year did the breakouts get more intense. Over these years I've used pretty much everything but accutane. As I'm already 20 and have no longer hormonal fluctiations (nothing noticeable, at least) and both my parents and my brother have or have had almost no acne as teens, this year I decided to look for what could be causing me acne. I've tested primarily foods, but since I'm already almost vegan and do not really
  4. Why You Shouldn't Use a Washcloth to Wash Your Face

    People with acne often wrongly believe that aggressively washing or scrubbing the skin will help to improve their acne, but the opposite is actually true. Acne-prone skin prefers to remain as untouched as possible, and staying gentle is best. Almost any cleanser you use will be more than powerful enough to remove surface oil, dirt, and pollution from your skin, and that is all that is needed. Dermatologists know that physically irritating the skin through too...
  5. Hey everyone, I just decided to go SLS free with my shower products. SLS free shampoo, body wash, facial cleanser and toothpaste. However, I noticed that the shampoo and body wash says "sulfates and paraben free" but still contains Sodium Olefin Sulfonate. Does anyone know if this is as bad as Sodium Lauryl Sulfate or using this won't be an issue? Please let me know because I spent quite a bit on these products and don't want to use them if they are useless. Thanks

  8. I'm in a bit of a predicament...I've found something that seems to be keeping my acne under control, but I just don't know if it's worth the possible consequences. Like many people on this site, I have been around the block with all kinds of products and there are very few out there I haven't tried. Nothing really seemed to help, and Ihcame to the conclusion that my "acne" is caused by an overabundance of fungus. I have very oily skin, and I get cystic like bumps on my forehead that just be
  9. How You Wash Your Body Might Be Making Your Body Acne Worse

    People with acne often wrongly believe that aggressively washing or scrubbing the skin will help improve their acne. The opposite is actually true. Staying gentle is best. Dermatologists and scientists know that anything that physically irritates the skin by causing too much friction, tension, rubbing, or pressure to the skin, especially for an extended period of time, can cause acne. In fact, it is such a well known fact that it has its own medical term:...
