Re: salicylic heal whiteheads?

Hey Asgirl,

I've noted some of the questions that you have been asking, and there is certainly nothing wrong with your inquiry, but there are some fundamentals that should probably be brought to your attention. Firstly, if you are battling non-responsive acne, you should start thinking about changing your diet (if you haven't done so already), and perhaps even some kind of androgen receptor blocker. Remember most people with acne do not have a colossal hormonal imbalance; they most probably have a small hormonal imbalance caused by the food that they eat (i.e. too much bread, pasta, milk and sugar). Combine this small imbalance, which I might add does not effect people who are not genetically predisposed, with overly sensitive androgen receptors, and you have an acne problem. So, you should probably consider either a natural or synthetic androgen receptor blocker, and, or a DHT inhibitor. For further explanation look-up the numerous posts on this topic authored by Sweetjade1. I'm only saying this, because given what you have said in relation to your skin, I imagine the last thing your needs is potentially irritating topicals. I hope this helps. If this post is redundant, in any way, please disregard.
