Is cetaphil facial cleanser could cause serious damage to the body if used frequently for a long time?
No, it's fine to use: Cetaphil facial cleanser or skin cleanser are milder than soaps. The Cetaphil cleansers don't take away too much skin oil, so the cleansers don't leave your skin too dry. These cleansers can be used every day instead of soap. They are not "facial scrubs" or "exfoliators" so won't be abrasive to skin. (Use a little each time, because all cleansers go down the drain, to our water supply or oceans (oxymetazoline).) ...Read more

Scientific Rx: First, manage your acne. If 5% topical benzoyl peroxide 2x/day hasn't cleared you in two weeks, get with your personal physician for something to add -- acne can be managed. Hydroquinone bleach can fade the dark spots (not the red spots) left behind, but be sparing or you'll disfigure yourself. Best wishes. ...Read more

The road to health..: The road to health does NOT lead through your rectum. Colon cleansing can cause vomiting, electrolyte imbalance, dehydration, jaundice & kidney failure.

My face and neck is so darker than my body. I am using skin lightening cream. And sometimes cleanser, toner and moisturizer. No use. Please help.
Sunscreen: If the darker areas are on the face and neck, sun is the most likely cause. You need an excellent sunscreen with SPF of about 50. I suggest looking for zinc or titanium oxide in the ingredients for the best results. If you avoid the sun and wear sunscreen every single day, your skin should gradually even out. ...Read more
Will using zdot hair cleanser work in passing a hair drug screening test for meth used meth onlly 3 times in the last two months?
Doubt it: Zdot is an expensive shampoo ($34.95 for one use, and that's "guaranteed" for only 24 hours because your body oils will re-contaminate the hair, supposedly.) Once you've used meth, the drug could be in your hair for 3 months. If using at all, it's very dangerous and very addictive. Please get help for your drug use. http://www.crystalmeth.org/cma-meeting-directory.html. ...Read more

Check the label: Depending on how much of the cleanser you actually ingested, it may not pose any real emergency.
