  1.   So far, I've only done one cross and I see a little bit of difference to my scars. The most noticeable ones are on my nose. I'm hoping to do more in the future  
  2.   Before reading her update, I was pretty anxious to do the cross again. But she mentions about being patient and letting the skin heal, which I'm trying to do now lol.  I'm at day 19 and hopefully my skin is ready for another cross by day 30-31! 
  3. Scars on nose?

    Hey, you should try TCA cross! I just did one a couple of weeks ago and some of the pitted scars on my nose are healing and starting to fill in nicely.    I'm doing another cross next month!
  4. Oh this sunscreen spray is specially for the face lol  And it gives the skin a much longer protection from the sun than most sunscreens.
  5. Day 7: I  only have a few scabs left on my face, but they're still very noticeable.I'm out of the house right now actually.I used a sunscreen spray (SPF 50) all over my face  before I left the house.I'm trying not to think about them as much because it's pretty embarrassing to look like this in public. A s if having acne isn't embarrassing enough... lol T_T    
  6. What has happened this forum1?

    It's really hard to use the quote thing in this forum. If it was easy, I think people wouldn't be doing quoting like this tbh lol 
  7. Country to buy quality Derma-roller from?

    Try Amazon and read their reviews
  8. Day 6: - A lot of the scabs came off. My face doesn't sting when I apply my face products. - I still have a few scabs though. I'm going out tomorrow :S I hope most of them come off when I wake up tomorrow morning LOL If not, I'm not sure how I'm gonna be out in public looking like this T_T 
  9. What has happened this forum1?

    Do you know how to quote someone without also quoting the quotes that quoted? lol Cause I don't know how this forum works. It's so different from the ones I'm used to. :/
  10. Day 4: A couple of the scabs came off.  And some are peeling...  The skin underneath looks a little pinkish.   
  11. What has happened this forum1?

    Bahaha! Your post made me laugh lol Anywho... it's always best to eat in moderation! But I totally get what you mean!
  12. What has happened this forum1?

    Yup it may not work for some. 
  13. What has happened this forum1?

    Based on those studies, it's not 100% that acne is linked to diet.  Having said that, I do believe that having acne is a way your body is telling you that there's something wrong from within. So I guess it's about knowing what is inside of you that is wrong and having a diet that could remedy that. I've read that having a healthy gut could solve the problem. So taking probiotics or anything that heals the gut might clear the skin. But that's only if you have a leaky/unhealthy gut. It could be too much consumption of saturated fat, like you said or etc.  Dietary changes may help, but knowing what they are is the most important I believe...  And I still believe there's more to research though.   
  14. Updates: Day 1:  About 1-2 hours after performing the CROSS, the frosts darkened in color and became scabs.  2nd day: Still scabbing I guess lol. My face looks funny with all the dark spots @_@
  15. What has happened this forum1?

    Agree but there are other factors that contribute to acne and it's very different for everyone. What works for you may not work for others, and vice versa. Acne is a very complex thing and I believe there's more to research on and that there's more information we could get than what we have right now. 
  16. What has happened this forum1?

    Ah I haven't really seen any posts like what you just described here... but I kinda understand where you guys are coming from...  I've actually met people like those before (not here) who moan about how bad their skin is but they really only have minor problems, and their skin looks waaaaay better than mine. It's hard not to take any offence when they complain about their so-called nightmare whether it's intentional or not lol ;S  And I agree about having more research done to study acne... Maybe they already have people who are working on it.. but I feel that they should have come up with something by now... :S Then again, acne is such a complex issue...  so maybe that's why we still don't have the real cure yet.   
  17. I just did the TCA Cross. I wanted to take pics but decided not to because my skin looks horrible lol :S Anywho.. I'm excited to see how my skin heals!

  19. Age 25...Losing Hope...Need advice

    Hey there. I totally understand how you're feeling! I'm also 25 and have been dealing with acne since I was 13-14 years old. I tried doing a lot of things too and most of them didn't really work.  Sometimes I wish I'd grow out of it too but idk when that'll happen.  I hate going out and meet people. I'm really insecure about myself and having acne makes me even more insecure... And I get really jealous of those with beautiful skin too! Ugh! Especially those who smoke or have poor eating habits etc. I feel so unlucky! I've always felt that acne always hinders me from doing the things I like...  My acne is a little bit tamed now but I do get nasty breakouts once in a while which sucks a lot.  I have a lot of scars and having them adds more to my insecurity. I avoid looking at myself in mirrors or my own reflection. And I hate taking photos with people..  I feel like acne also prevents me from making good friends. And I've never been in a real relationship because I always fear that the other won't like me because of how I like.  Acne really sucks. And I think part of why I have panic disorder is also because of face demons... I try not to think much about my face. Cause it makes me feels horrible about myself. I always try to get myself distracted with things like school or TV series.. Those are ways I use to forget about my imperfections... I think it's definitely gotta to with the internal. Maybe acne is a way your body is telling you that there's something wrong from within.  I'm trying as much as possible to eat healthily. I hear a healthy gut helps you get clear skin and does other good things to your body. So I'm slowly trying to learn how to heal mine.  Anywho..  it's nice to know I'm not that I'm alone...  
  20. I got mine yesterday (Friday) I can't wait to try it! Maybe I'll do it on Monday or Friday lol  
  21. Yeah I'd like to get the 15% TCA too. Thank you!   
  22. I can't wait to try this tbh lol. I know that it takes about a week to heal but I wonder how long my own skin will heal though...  Also, how often should we do the treatment to see an improvement?  I'd love to get another TCA with lower concentration. I read 30% is good enough or is there a specific concentration for full face peel?
  23. Yeah I was thinking whether to get another TCA with lower concentration for a full face peel. 
  24. Yeah, I think that would be really helpful!
  25. Thanks, Audreee! Can't wait to get my order!
