    3. Sulfur: helps to stop acne
    4. copper: an important mineral for collagen formation, may be the key to firmer, more youthful skin.

    i m interested in sulfur mineral, but have not tried any. just wonder if any of you have tried it and see results. any feedback??

    some of the products from Murad, Peter Thomus Roth and DDF contains sulfur, and read some good reviews at MUA.

    Thanks in advance

    Hi duckiee, I've tried taking Blackmore's zinc pills for quite a while.It did good for my skin, reducing inflammation somehow strenghtening my skin.But i find it such a chore and it didn't taste nice

    Btw, by taking zinc, will also increase sexual drive..Tried and tested
    Hahahaah

    desperate to get rid of the zits and figured eating supplements would be better than antibiotics

    did a search on MUA and found out that zinc supplements aid healing and also help to control acne. this site provides quite a good explanation. anybody taking zinc and have seen good results? the girls over at MUA seem to it and i'm hoping i'll love it too

    Hi candee,
    Retin a is not an exfoliator which most people thinkso. But peeling and flakiness is a very common side-effect. It works by promoting healthier cells (don't know the exact chemical reaction, got to ask a derm or u could google search for it, or even in cc for similar discussion). Its good for even-toning of skin and zits but useless on freckles/pigmentation. To be used during only.
    My tube costs ard $24, which could last me around 1 yr.

    BP is Benzoyl Peroxide, the active ingredient in Oxy. But moi using PC Blemish fightening solution which I find its less drying than Oxy yet effective in the :piss: , during daytime. :thumps:

    HTH

    thanks for all the informations, ladies.

    retin a?? is it bad for skin?? err... i mean does it make the top layer of our skin thinner, hence skin becomes more sensitive?? :huh:

    sweetmango -> i m using Ettusais's acne concealer, doesn't seems to work for me.

    latte -> what's BP??

    echo_nym -> flaxseed oil pills...any side effect??

    But if I'm not wrong, only at the derm's office. I love Retin-A too! It's the best skincare item, if you can consider that, that I've ever ever used!

    But not everyone will get as good results. And because it's so strong, some people will have dry skin and peel non stop from it.

    Also, it's not cheap. Still, because it's everything in a cream, I only have to use that at night. Since using moisturizer over or under it will dilute its effect, it works fine for the minimizer in me.

    My grandma actually bought sulphur powder for me to apply when I was a teenager then...can't remember how foul-smelling it was. She used lemon juice to mix with the sulphur powder and *** it onto my pimples. It was so long ago and I don't know if it worked. My memory's failing me...u can get the sulphur powder from chinese medicine hall. No prescription needed. A little goes a long way.

    Went for a dip in a hot spring in China many years ago. They said it's good for pimples and people with skin problems. They called it liu2 huang2 shui3. I do see the Chinese there with very good skin.

    My gf swears by Retin-A as well...will get it when I'm in Bangkok.
