View Full Version : Ditching regular shampoo cleared up my bacne... I think : )

Seven weeks ago I switched from using silicone-laden SLS shampoos and conditioners to diluted Burt's Bees shampoo (still trying to figure out the best non-cone, non-SLS conditioner for my hair). For the first time in five years I have no acne on my back. No whiteheads, no blackheads that I can feel, and most importantly, no cysts! I hope it isn't just coincidence.

Yay! Its such a nice feeling when skin behaves.

When I was using coney conditioners I use to have to wash my back after rinsing out the conditioner otherwise I would get a back breakout.

Oooh! What a brilliant side effect! I'll keep an eye on my back and see if I get something similar.

Congrats! I've never heard of that happening, but that's pretty cool.

I think you might be on to something there, as I find silicone in a lot of cosmetics can make my skin on my face get oily. Ironic, really, since silicones are used to give cosmetics slip when you apply them and are often used in 'oil free' products.
