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 · 57 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...

ok so my moisturizer is working great.  I’m not flaky anymore.  i use it after every shower but it is too heavy for under make up but that's ok.  i gently rinse with cool water just to lessen the shine.  
   
however,  the damage is done.    
   
because of all the flaking blackheads are showing up all over like craz...

Day 47 - Balance Is Hard To Find

Posted by nancypan23, 07 November 2013 · 126 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...
