Whilst painting the garage earlier I spent a rather disturbing amount of time staring at a roll of sandpaper. You doubtless all know what I was thinking. Which left me wondering - how many people have tried to sandpaper their skin off like some sort of deranged DIY microdermabrasion? It made me reminisce about the time I tried to offer my eternal soul to the devil (yes, I know) in exchange for nice clear skin. lol.gif

So, what's the most ludicrous skin-related thing you've ever done?

Pro-Activ. Maybe not crazy, but sure as fuck EXPENSIVE....

lmao! That's nuts Calibos, but at least it's...organic?

Wart remover for me... Left nice little burn marks *thumbs up*. Or no wait! Hemorrhoid(sp?) cream. I used it for the cortisone, which supposedly helped with redness and inflamation. It was nasty shit!

The Regimen of One Who Loves to Experiment with New Products:

AM -
  • Some random gentle cleanser - usually with SA (Currently Phisoderm)
  • Jojoba Oil
  • Yes to Carrots Facial Moisturizer
  • Makeup: Philosophy The Present, MAC concealer, Benefit Some Kinda Gorgeous
PM -
  • Same cleanser, or sometimes I exfoliate
  • Jojoba Oil
  • Juice Organics Brightening Serum (trying it out for 1st time)
  • Spot treat with Clearasil (if need be)
Taking Yasmin for hormonal breakouts.

Slathered my face nightly with Retin-A cream.

Or, exfoliating every morning with an AHA scrub and washcloth, and following that up with an astringent and a moisturizer that contained salicylic acid.

I actually used a pumice stone on a huge spot once that formed out of no where. Still got a big red mark to prove it tho its faded a lot over the years.

deciding to wash my face rigorously no less than 10 times a day for about 3 months. aaa shitted up my skin good and proper.
oh i also used to put on make up for work before i went to bed so i could sleep in an extra 10 minutes in the morning.

Dipped my face into a sink of malt liquor for a few minutes. I heard good things from the bum who decided, in all his wisdom, to offer me acne advice. Didn't do much and I smelled like a drunk for a few days. Probably not the smartest move I've ever pulled.

As for the " trying to make a deal with the Devil", I've done that too. Sadly, didn't get a response. Hell, I'd sell my soul to anyone on the org if they could make my face completely clear again.
