  1. I have been using Tretinoin microsphere gel 0.1% and Minocycline 100mg (twice a day) for a couple of months now and I was on the acneeinstein.com website and the suggestion of taking zinc/Vitamin D3 pills was suggested. I wanted to ask and see if it was ok that I take these pills along with the medications that have been prescribed to me? thanks in advance.
  2. I started developing severe cystic acne when I was 20. They were huge red cysts with three heads each that would grow on both cheeks (almost symmetrically), and wouldn't stop being inflamed for two weeks at a time. It was ugly and really painful, and they left marks that would not go away for atleast three months and scars that are still on my cheeks. As I went from acne-free to covered in horrible red acne and scars on my face I became depressed and lost five kgs. I also started to *lose m
  3. So I've been using Jojoba oil, zinc oxide and benzoyl peroxide for the past week. Zinc with benzoyl does not seem like a good idea since my skin got super dry after I washed it. I've got cystic acne on me cheeks, I believe its from touching/pillow but the oil production hasn't decreased yet and zinc is working like a charm(not sure if it's good in the long-run tho). Has anybody else tried doing this? How can I modify this routine to get more results? btw going to stop using bp and see if anythin
  4. Hello everyone, I am 22yo female half black and half white. I suffered from acne since I was 13yo : extremely oily skin, black and white heads, occasionnal big painful zits as well as some cystic acne. I live in Paris France, where it's cloudy and cold most of the time. I'm inside an office all day. I wash my face and body with Dudu Osun, African black soap. I use Dudu Osun on my face to remove make up, then I cleanse it with jeunesse global luminesce cleanser. I've been keeping this c
  5. During my many years struggling with mild cystic acne and after seeing many different Dermatologists, who put me on many different medications (including Accutane), I discovered that I must be the one to resolve my acne. If I was ever going to manage my acne, I must be proactive and study my skin in order to understand my acne disease process. So I began reading all I could about the skin and what role it plays with the body. Then I systematically examined my skin, trying to figure out what w
  6. How's it going everybody! Well, I'm new to participating in this community (long time reader and site-surfer) and I need to figure something out. Recently, about 2 weeks ago, I adopted an entirely new diet; one that I hope will assist with finding the real underlying reason for my acne. A little bit of background: I've had acne since I was 13 years old - I'm 18 now and heading into college (I'm a guy by the way). At first it was mild/slightly moderate with occasional inflamed pimples. I went

  8. Hey guys, I've stumbled upon several different consumer products that can help strengthen and heal skin affected by acne. Well, common ones are the vitamin Ester-C, skin support tablets by Blackmores(meant for acne skin),Zinc and acne formulations that contain herbs such as Burdock, Sarsaparilla, Echinacea and Sassafras.These can help skin that is suffering from active acne and needs extra help to clear up. A little more effective for skin that is already recovering from acne is IG6. This pr
  9. I have been taking vitamin C, zinc and centrum for the past 2 days , but still nth can stop me from scarring from no where . I can't see a new formation of acne , just a scar from no where .

  10. Has anyone got some information regarding taking zinc when eating Accutune? Thanx.
  11. how much zinc does a guy lose during ejaculation?
  12. There are so many guides out there about mineral makeup! There are so many ingredients that can be put into mineral makeup. Some are good and some are not so good. There is also a lot of bad hype about certain ingredients that is simply not true. Another note about ingredients. Mineral makeup doesn't generally contain what people like to call "fillers". I have not seen an ingredient in my research that does not have some form of use in each product. So, I don't consider anything liste
  13. Revised due to: caffeine's effect on melatonin, and folate's ability to influence light-induced melatonin suppression. Morning EGCG + caffeine along with moving folate intake to evening is about the only significant trick I've discovered in the last couple of years. Recap: Zinc is one of the longest-studied nutrients that correlates with statistically significantly less acne. Some months years ago, I discovered that around 200mg/day of zinc picolinate could, under some circumstances, make m
  14. Hello, I once suffered from pretty severe acne. Perhaps between moderate and severe, everyday I would feel self conscious about it and it put me into a significant depression. I recall it consuming my entire life, I would literally hide my face and stray away from people around. Could you believe I would even skip college classes due to a breakout? I would actually see my face in my car mirror and feel disgusted by my appearance and I would just hide in my car until class ended. I just couldn'
  15. it has zinc oxide, sulfuric acid, SA, and more. Anyone use it, i used it awile ago and it was good. Wondering if anyone else uses it?
  16. Hey, I have stopped the regimen becauseit was making ym skin too dry, although I have switched to a Antibacterial Tea tree Oil Saop bar thaty always works wonders for me, while I will continue to use BP, 2.5% (Neutrogena) although it will only be used for spot treatment. Along with this I am taking 2 Multivitamins a day, alogn with 50 mg of zinc on tpp of this and 1000 mg of Vitimin C, 500 in morn then 500 at night so it absorbes. If I begin to break out again, I will apply BP at night. So

  19. ive been on antibiotics and benzaclin for a while which keeps my acne under control , but i still had a problem with my back, and area around my hairline (forehead, sideburns, etc) A few weeks ago, i was searching for a shampoo for my oily hair (unrelated to acne) and found a product called folli cleanse. It is the only shampoo i have found that contains sodium lauryl sulfate, instead of sodium laureth solfate.( which is known to irritate the skin) It also contains something called zinc pc
  20. Well after a week of taking 10G of B5 I havnt even seen the slightest amount of reduction in my oilyness, However i must be doing something right as I compared my skin now to a photo 3-4 weeks ago and it was terrible, I currently have 3 large red pimples on the right side of my face which started soon after I started taking B5 but there all pretty concentrated in the same place on my face, and If i think back around when my face looked like a pile of shit i remember putting some anti bacterial c

  25. Hi everyone. I have been lurking here for quite a while. I have moderate cystic acne that I have been able to control pretty well by much of what I have learned from this and 'another' website. I do not know what exactly is working beause I do a few different things but basically...I take B5 x 4-6 grams a day, 30mg of zinc, 1000mg of C, and a good EFA...topically I alternate between Alpha Hydrox 10%, Paula's hoice 1% or 2% BHA. And I ALWAYS moisturize with Eucerin Renewal. Every Sunday I give my
