    Re: Hydrogen Peroxide!!

    most premature aging is due to sun damage.people with oily skin tend do get less wrinkles than normal skinned people.well its the lower layers of the skin where the sebasious glands are sensative to androgens.i was using benzoyl peroxide on my skin for a couple of years and my skin was really taking a beating and looking old.i never used hydrogen preoxide on my skin.topicals do for the most part seem to dry the skin but your sebasious glands keep producing more.other than balancing your hormones by diet or using accutane to shrink the oil glands or lasers to alter the oil glands or anti-androgens this includes bc pills i dont know any other thing that can reduce oil production.i guess almost everything you do to combat acne has its risks!

    I know that it may sound crazy but have any of you tried Urine theropy, where yes you actually apple the urine to your face, some people say that it really works. It worked for me in the area that I applied it on. If any one is interester go to the herpes board and do a search on urine theropy. Hope this is not too out there for some of you.

    Re: Hydrogen Peroxide!!

    HI everyone! I am the original "post-er" girl of this thread! I am so happy to hear that others are using hydrogen peroxide and seeing the amazing benefits that I am. I've been using it now for about two months! I am acne free for the most part. I still get a few pimples right before that time of the month, but that is it! And I was breaking out like crazy before the peroxide. O.k. to address some questions:

    I totally agree that there are some pretty crazy acne treatments out there that are tremendously damaging to the skin. I used Neutrogena benzoyl peroxide treatment and I looked like an old lady on my jaw line and neck!

    My mom has been using peroxide on her nose for years! The only bleaching that occurs with peroxide is that your blackheads aren't as noticable! That's a good thing! You do need to be careful of your eyebrows as mine have lightened. I was being a dope though and in my excitement of this product just swiping it all over my face. Now I just avoid the eyebrows! :-) As for discoloration of the skin........none that I have noticed in my mom or myself, and again, my mom has used it for years. Think of this. If you dye your hair and get some of the dye on your skin, it comes off, and that is DYE!!!

    As for free radical damage. Nope! All I can say is do your research on what free radicals are, what causes them etc. etc. [ removed ] I use it twice a day ALL OVER MY FACE (minus those eyebrows) and have been doing so for a couple of months now. I experienced drying for a couple of days last week because I used my tretinoin cream with it. So I wouldn't reccommend any creams. Unless you have already tried yours and you were fine. With the peroxide itself.....absolutely no drying. As for comments about the stinging, it is new to your face and if you have pimples on your face that stinging is the peroxide cleaning the abrasions. Just like it stings when pouring it over a cut. It's killing germs!

    So congrats to those of you who are using it and having success! I can't tell you how excited I was to share this info with people. I stumbled across it and it has made a HUGE difference in my life! I'll check back again soon! Hope to see more great stories!
