  1. Just thought I'd share the amazing experience I had through using zinc oxide 40%(more specifically: burts bees baby bee diaper rash ointment). A little back story, I'm a 24 year old who never really had issues with acne until my Mirena iud birth control made me get horrible acne on my forehead. They were mostly closed comedones but there was one huge cystic pimple. I, of course, tried to pop it numerous times only to make it worse. Eventually it flatten and I was left with a scar(which hydroquin
  2. ZINC OXIDE: IF YOU GREW UP IN THE 80′S YOU MAY REMEMBER ZINKA…. Back in the 80′s the zinc was not micronized so it was very WHITE, and sometimes contained the addition of a hot pink, green or yellow color! Life guards wore it on their noses and lips. Yes the 80′s did happen. So did Stussy, big shoulder pads and NEON. So why am I obsessed with zinc oxide? It has cleared my acne, healed my eczema and calmed my irritated skin while providing UVA/UVB protection. There are not enough produc
  3. hello! (although i mean to start it primarily for those in India but in today's age boundaries aint really an issue ; considering online shopping and other modern facilities. so,do not hesitate adding ur suggestions or posting questions/concerns or seeking additional tips on sunscreen) according to me, an ideal sunscreen (for acne prone skin or otherwise) should be one - with spf 30 or morewith both chemical and physical barriers(for complete protection from UVA & UVB) with zin
  4. i also confirm CUTADEN is amazing! if you're from Romania, buy it now (if you're not, search for inotyol). for my back acne it works better than benzoyl peroxide. it has a particular effectiveness for cysts i think. in 3days most of acne will be gone. i'll also write it's ingredients: Petrolatum, Lanolin, Aqua, Ichthammol, Hamamelis Virginiana Extract, Sodium Borate, Zinc Oxide, Titanium Dioxide, Parfum.
  5. So i heard diaper rash cream can shrink a cystic pimple because of the zinc oxide. anyone tried this.. In the past what has helped is coconut oil spot treatment (take about a week), garlic use spot treatment (3 days but be careful too much causes blistering of skin), and alcohol (same as garlic), drinking lots of water, taking zinc..castor oil spot treatment (helped bring to head in a day), certain brands of calamine lotio, prevention through taking care of my body. not masterbating (lol seri
  6. So I went to Shoppers Drug Mart and picked up Bioderma Cicabio Soothing Repairing Cream. My acne is mostly under control thanks to daily supplements of cod liver oil and zinc (50 mg), so I've just been looking for a product that will get rid of the marks left on my face without breaking me out. They're not exactly red anymore, more so pink. I remembered reading somewhere on here that Bioderma had almost entirely favourable reviews, so I thought I'd give this cream a chance. It's intended for
  7. Hey everyone. I'll be quick about it. I recently discovered that 'zinc oxide' can be the stand-alone acne cure for some people. (Seems like most actually). These people use baby diaper rash creams and sunscreens with a zinc oxide percentage of 5 to 40 percent. I have been intrigued to try zinc oxide related products. Note, zinc oxide is recommended for oily skin-types. I have mostly dry, sensitive skin. So this is a risk, because I'm a bit desperate. (Arn't we all). Though the warmer clima
  8. Hi guys... Okay so I've finally got my acne under control..and really want to start using SPF everyday. I ordred mine from Pratima Spa- it's called Neem Rose facial Sunscreen and it's supposed to be amazing, naturally I researched every ingredient to make sure it doesn't clog pores, it also claims to help acne too. However it contains zinc oxide which has had such a big debate. Renee Rouleau's team claims it doesn't clog pores at all..and Paula Begouin claims it does. So much researc
  9. Hi guys, Just curious if you have any suggestions for mineral makeup formulated without zinc/titanium oxide..one of those if not both are definitely clogging my pores. As soon as I stop wearing the mineral powder with both of those present..the clogging stops. Any suggestions?! Thanks
  10. Does Lemon Juice Clear Acne?

    Numerous online anecdotal reports suggest that lemon juice helps reduce acne, while others report no acne-clearing benefit. Scientists have not performed any studies investigating the effect of lemon juice on acne, but studies on how individual chemicals present in lemon juice suppress the factors involved in acne help shine some light on the subject and point toward the possibility that lemon juice, and oils in lemon peels might help to some degree. Chemical Composition of Lemons Lemons...
  11. Hey guys , I really hope someone here can help me out. So like many people, I realize the importance of wearing spf everyday but it's really hard to do that when every sunscreen you've tried on the market has broken you out from mineral based to chemical based. Here's a little background on my skin... 18 yr old female (Not on any medications/prescriptions) Asian .. Fair Skin (Around NC20) Little Acne (Acne is most prominent on the apples of my cheeks and in b/n my eyebrows) .. Chin/forhea
  12. Hello! Has anyone tried diaper rash cream? I just bought this for my son and he tried it for the first time last night. It contains 40% Zinc Oxide and 13 % Cod Liver Oil. I've been reading some good reviews. I'd love to hear your thoughts. Thank you very much
