I honestly and totally forgot about this site! :-S hmm, guess that's a good thing right? *knock on wood* everything is still great, skin wise. Wish i could say the pink marks have completely gone but they're still there - fading...sllowwlllyyy! However, the main thing is no more bloody acne, they have seized and i'm SUPER happy about it!
This is a fairly recent pic of me, i'm wearing a bit of loose powder and a little goes a long way! i mean, it manages to cover up the remaining pink marks nicely where as before i had to wear heavy makeup.
Dunno what else to say, but if any of yas have questions please feel free i guess...
well it might be different there, but everywhere i go here does those designs and they do cost extra but not much, only maybe 5 dollars more! just show them the pic and say thats what you want, any good nail salon should be able to do it
its not as harsh as most bp products but maybe just try erythromycin then, i only use it once a day though cus it makes my skin feel pretty tight. most of my little bumps turned into spots, probably cus im stupid and dont leave them alone
there are quite a few posts about what topicals worked best for people. a lot said what u used before was really good, but benzamycin (bp and erythromycin) is apparently really good. retin a etc is a bit harsh and causes redness if your skins already sensitive. otherwise you could just try a deep wash kind of thing, like neutrogena and apply sudocream after (only at nite, cus it looks icky and only a little) my friend said that worked wonders for him
i used erythromycin topical as well, although it doesnt do anything to me, i dont really know why i use it! but the little bumps are just undeveloped spots arent they :s? back when i used tetra it cleared me in literally about two weeks, the little bumps everything. it did stop working though, and my skin broke out in a gazillion little bumps on my forehead
my doctor said it takes 3 weeks for the bc to adjust to the antibiotics or something, not sure how true that is. it doesn't completely cancel the bc, it just won't be 99% effective during the entire course of antibiotics
