    I just use Vitamin D drops which contain only vitamin D (cholecalciferol) dissolved in MCT oil. I mix one or two drops with my moisturiser in the palm of my hand. It's very simple, and no different...

    Yea, I definitely think it's applying it topically that's making the difference rather than oral supplementation. I only take vitamin D supplements in the winter (which is why I'm comfortable taking...

    An update almost a year later.

    As I've mentioned in a few posts in other threads here (particularly Nick's Benzyl Benzoate thread) I've been treating what I had diagnosed as demodectic acne for...

    Just a heads-up: if you check the ingredients for it on CeraVe's US and UK websites, it seems just the US version contains it.

    The UK site lists these as the ingredients:



    Very similar, but...

    For those who are curious to try topical vitamin D in the form of cholecalciferol as Tom has been doing, CeraVe has recently launched a moisturiser including it, called the CeraVe SA Smoothing Cream....

    My opinion is that the Lumion products are overpriced compared to other hypochlorous acid products that are available, and differ only in their inclusion of "electrolysed oxygentaed water" which...

    The Noreva Sebodiane DS Microemulsion also lists niacinamide as one of its active ingredients and is designed to treat SD. I can share the ingredients if you're interested:

    Thanks, Brady -- I'll look into it. I did try supplementing with astaxanthin for a few months, which is another carotenoid, but didn't notice anything like the dramatic results mentioned in the post...

    If there were a straightforward way to reduce your skin's oil production, I'd love to know it. Sadly I'm unaware of anything that will do that.

    As someone who's suffered from very dehydrated skin,...

    I wasn't prescribed the combination, but I found that the two worked synergistically together. Adapalene, like most retinoids, doesn't have any antibacterial effect per se -- they treat acne by...

    I used Differin gel (adapalene). My routine was to apply a roughly pea-sized amount mixed with a pea-sized amount of Skinoren gel (azelaic acid) nightly, which kept me satisfactorily clear. The...

    I've definitely wondered the same. When I first tried my mix of De La Cruz with additional sublimated sulphur, my face exploded with breakouts, but I took solace in the presumption that more intense...

    Thanks for the update, Nick!

    As for me, I've kept my routine pretty simple as of late. In the mornings I rinse my face with just water and apply Hada Labo Premium Lotion. Then in the evening I'll...

    All shampoos are formulated differently, so when I advise against using them on the face, it's just because as a general rule they contain harsher surfactants than face washes, and foam up more,...

    I'm currently visiting Lithuania, and out of curiosity went to a cosmetics shop inside a supermarket here in Vilnius, and despite it being such a small store space they even had a section...

    My sentiments exactly. People resort to athlete's foot creams and doctors are prescribing harsh shampoos for the face -- a testament to how seb derm research and treatments are horrendously lacking...

    The ciclopirox olamine creams I came across, Mycoster and a generic, did not contain highly comedogenic ingredients like isopropyl myristate. That said, a formulation's comedogenecity can be highly...

    Not that I'm aware of. It might reduce the bacterial load from demodex populations, but I'm unaware of it having any effect on the demodex mite itself, and assume it doesn't considering how hardy the...

    The issue with steroids is that they treat the symptoms but not the cause, by suppressing the immune response, but the body has an immune system for a reason. When the immune system is locally...

    I generally advise against using shampoos as a face wash for the simple reason that they're designed for the scalp, which has thicker skin that can tolerate surfactants much better than the thin skin...

    Yes, I've also tried Mycoster cream which is 1% ciclopirox olamine, with no results. At the very least it's one of the cheapest options to try, as a tube of cream was only about 3.

    Sorry, I should rephrase my question: has the use of Accutane commonly caused rosacea-like (i.e. "red face") symptoms? I just ask because it's the first time I'm hearing this, so I'm curious how you...

    I've never heard of any cases of rosacea developing from use of Accutane before. Is there substantial evidence of that?

    I've tried the Face Cure cream for 3 weeks, applying to my affected areas (moustache and chin crease), and have noticed no improvement whatsoever. It also has the unfortunate side-effect of clogging...
