SELSUN BLUE THE NEW PROACTIV?




There is an underground cult of straight men that know more about beauty than women. Years ago my own brother had a case of traumatizing face acne. One day he decided to shower with Selsun Blue. Magically it had disappeared over a short period of time.

A few weeks ago one of my clients came to me about her friend's acne problem on his back. She said that he had been to all kinds of doctors and specialists with no success. She asked if I would be able to help out. I told her that he should try the Selsun blue first and let me know what happens. In about a week it was cleared. She said that the only side effect he had now was dry skin and some of the scarring.

I can't tell you how many times I have seen this help others.
The selenium sulfide is the active ingredient, but make sure you follow the instructions. In all instances the users used it as shampoo not as a body wash. Just allow the suds to run down the body.

Let me know what you think!!

I am 38 years old and have had mild acne breakouts since my teens. Recently I had a stress related breakout and my face had been sore. My mother gets soreness and swelling around her eyes and her doctor told her to try washing her face with Selsun Blue and it really works. She suggested that I try it so yesterday I washed morning and night and today my acne is alot better already. I will try it for a few days and see what happens. And yes, my skin does feel a little tight due to drying, so I'll see if that gets any worse.

I need to say that this is the best acne treatment of all time! I'm now 100% acne free, and I never thought I would be before I discovered this! I do have a few tips for using it though. I read about this on an acne.org forum, and decided to give it a try. Now, right before I tried it I had some exfoliation procedures done, which I think really irritated my skin. When I used the Selsun Blue I DEFINATLEY noticed a huge difference in my acne! In fact it was so dramatic that over night all of my pimples had completely gone away! Only red marks were left, however, my skin was severely dry. The next day when I woke up my acne was even better, the redness had turned into pink dots, and all the scabs were gone, but my skin was so severely irritated that if I tried to smile my skin crinkled all around my face, and it hurt just to open my mouth to eat. I tried putting coconut oil on the dry skin, and it just swelled up! I looked like a pouting monkey! I was afriad that the dryness was because of Selsun Blue, and switched to Head and Shoulders. Eventually the redness subsided, but the acne came back with a vengeance! The combination of the oil, and dry skin, plus using a less effective treatment just did not do my skin well! After about a week I decided to give Selsun Blue another try, and BAM! MAGIC! My acne is gone, and my skin is not in the least bit irritated! I highly recommend this to everyone! Just DO NOT try it if you've recently had a peel, and use a moisturizer! As a person who tried EVERYTHING, and I mean everything from antibiotics, prescription creams, proactive, Murad, acid peels, natural oils, Cider Vinegar, Vitamins, and has been on a candida diet for years I can say that I've tried everything there is to try in the world of acne treatments, even salt water! This is the best! I had some small success with Murad, and antibiotics, but this in all seriousness CURED my acne, and in about 2 days! That sounds too miraculous to believe, but it's true! Just dilute it in water, lather it on your face / back / chest and massage for 2-3 minutes. Then rinse well. Go ahead and use any moisturizer you like. (I can now use moisturizers that aren't even intended for oily skin, like Nivea cream, with fantastic very non-oily results!) If you are suffering with acne, especially with adult acne, (Like I was, I had severe cystic greasy acne for 11+ years!) Please give this a try! There is no chance you'll regret it! Like I said, it CURED my acne! Please give this a try! <3 <3 <3 Thanks so much for this post! -Lisa

I will not agree on it. I assume nice post. Especially the title attracted me to read the sound story.

Um its great for a lot of people but selsun blue definetly didnt due anything for my acne. I had backne for yeasrs and thats becuase its genetic/hormonal.But it does help clean a lot of the grease on my hair that had been building up on my scalp because it simply would not wash off with normal shampoos (the gunk would just accumulate). I think that grease was slowly sliding from my scalp to other parts of my body and staying their. wierd i know.

I am a 38 year old, black female. I have had back and arm acne since I was 16 years old. I also used several antibiotics but the acne keeps returning. I stared using selsun blue AND head and shoulders. I rub a dime size amount on my arms and back, leave it for 2-3 minutes and shower. I then use Hydroxy lotion and wait 2-3 minutes before applying eucerin body lotion. I have to say my acne has cleared tramendously! I would recommend Selsun blue in a heart beat for bacne!

After everything I tried FINALLY I am acne free 6 months now and scars are barely visible. Even if you do get 1 this stuff heals it and flakes it right off overnight. I use for oily hair, has to have SelEnium sulfide as active ing. Also I mix mine with medicated acne scrub foe exfoliating and Burt's bees for sensitive skin as moistureizer. I feel tho my acne was related to candida over growth as this kills a yeast related to p.acnes....?

Ok ive been hearing alot latley about selson blue, & how it supposivley works magnificantly amazing for acne! I am so excited 2 try this product only because the 3 step skin system that im using seems 2 work somewhat for my acne, but its not as satisfying as i hoped it would be. I know exactly were to get this shampoo & everything but before i do the only reason im holding back from not trying it is, because people say that it leaves your skin tremendously dry & for a 15 year old hipsanic girl, i already have dry skin skin as it is...i mean its not 2 say my skin is super super dry but it does
get a little dry here & there so i do have 2 use a specific type of moisturuzer for my skin, therefore that is the only huge downfall that i think im going 2 have with selson blue :( Please if any of u guys have any recommendations for me with my moisturzing issues, please be so kind as 2 help & suggest anything that would b able 2 calm this issue down!! :) i would appreciate it a ton guys! As i am desperate as well as being so excited 2 try this product please respond!! Thank u & Bless u all!

After reading this post I decided to buy the generic brand of medicated selsun blue? I don't know if that's the one I should have bought,but it didn't do anything for my acne. Or maybe its because I didn't buy the right one???

Selsun Blue has anti-fungal properties which should improve Seborrhoeic dermatitis which is often mistaken for acne. I had this on my forehead and was actually making it worse by exfoliating and drying out the area. If you are looking at red, bumpy skin but not pustules, it might be a form of dermatitis.

HELP. I have been hearing about selsun blue helping sun spots, and mine get terrible in the summer from the sun, even though I use the highest SPF and even wear a hat. I started getting them after I went to a dermatologist for glycolic peels for my acne scars. Now, they are so embarrassing. So I heard about selsun blue. I accidentally fell asleep with it on my sun spots on my face overnight and now my face is super dry in those spots and red. WHAT DO I DO?! please help.

We tried everything for my 20 yr old daughter to cure her acne, she has been seeing a dermatologist for years- we have spent tons of money on prescription creams, she has been on doxycycline every day for about 6-8months and it helped a little but not a lot. Finally I noticed my mothers rosacea was looking dramatically better and asked her if she was back on her antibiotics and she told me know, all she uses is selsen blue. I thought if it worked for the rosacea maybe it would work for the acne- within 1 week of using it my daughters acne was almost 100% clear. how wonderful to see her with clear skin again!! she saw the dermatologist Monday and they compared her before and after pictures and even the dermatologist was amazed. Told her she really didn't even need her anymore!! So now she gets to move onto the next step which is trying a chemical peel to remove the scarring left by years of acne. It is so nice to see her get her confidence back. And we have her dermatologists seal of approval!

I used the Selsun Yellow for my itchy scalp, I also have acne on my back. After using the shampoo I notice the acne on my back also decrease so I decide to test the shampoo on my back & it works great.
