    Unfortunately all the other acne options suck. Most of the over-the-counter crap doesn't work too well.

    Your choices are topical or oral antibiotics or retinoids. Both require prescriptions. :(

    Damn it.. tanning it is..

    Do you just lay out in the sun or whatever?

    Or do you use a tanning bed? If so, how many times do I need to go? And how much? I'll be honest in that I don't want to look really tan.. not a fan of the look. Slight color is fine. More for the bacne.

    From a health standpoint it's probably better to lay out in the sun than use a tanning bed. Dermatologists are still generally very anti-tanning bed since it theoretically increases skin cancer risk(though there's little evidence to back that up in non-predisposed subjects). They also say there's no real great studies showing that tanning actually improves acne, though anecdotally people say it does.

    Sun exposure is one of those super controversial topics in health care that no one has really been able to figure out.

    may or may not cause skin cancer in non-predisposed individuals
    lowers blood pressure
    improves vit D and bone density
    causes wrinkles
    subjectively improves acne and skin appearance

    I've been bed tanning for the past week. Go every other day, start small (I started at 7 minutes I think) and work your way up a minute at a time until you're a color you want and then back off to weekly. Put sunscreen on your face so you don't end up like jarude.

    I'm trying pantothenic acid to decrease my acne, btw. It's not terrible but I get some on my back/arms. Will let you know in a few weeks how it goes. Right now taking 9g daily.

    Charly, I had pretty bad acne in highschool, went on accutane and it went away and it never really came back except for small little episodes, everytime that happened I used this and it cleared it up http://www.walgreens.com/store/c/panoxyl-acne-cleansing-bar/ID=prod2499873-product

    this is coming from someone who dealt with the shit his whole life, most stuff you'll buy in the store doesnt do much, that actually does. probably has to do with the high amount of benzoyl peroxide. whatevs.

    Not sure if you exfoliate either but using a loofah every couple of days should help, too.

    yep, this as well. i just have my girl scrub down my back once or twice a week, this plus tanning, plus benzoyl peroxide = no bacne.

    i find sitting in the steam room also helps, opening up your pores and shit. but that all broscience

    Not huge at all. Probably around 200.. but he's also 6'2".

    I think you're confusing a bit of veins for being "huge."

    Accutane crew checking in. Benzoyl peroxide is decent but can be harsh on your skin. And if you don't rinse properly it'll bleach your clothes.

    Got food poisoning two nights ago night. Threw up everything in my stomach yesterday morning and then realized I could, uh, self-medicate to control the nausea. The day got way better from that point :D
