After doing some reading I’ve come to the conclusion that my showers are WAY too hot.  no no no not like that LOL  
I love a scalding hot shower but my skin does not.     
I turned down the temp and immediately saw a difference.  I wasn’t so red and irritated when i got out of t...

Learned Something New

Posted by nancypan23, 18 December 2013 · 93 views

I learned something new while watching the Dr's on TV.  Never use ret-A and Glycolic acid at the same time.  It may seem obvious to some but i didnt even think about it.  i would use my pads and then use my ret-a night cream shortly after.  
i never noticed a huge reaction but apparently it is really irritating.  maybe this...

Posted by nancypan23, 07 November 2013 · 175 views

balance is hard to find.     
it's also hard to resist candy and sugar.  I'm dead serious when i say i have a reaction to this.  It's NOT a myth.  Halloween was a week ago and i'm still suffering the consequences of too much chocolate/candy.  
on top of that i did too much tea tree oil on the forehead and irritated...
