Any improvements? I'm gonna post new pics soon. At the moment, my face is soaked in honey in hopes of healing those rolling scars that appeared out of nowhere. My moisturizer has a low percentage of glycolic acid, and I wonder if that's what's irritating my skin. But I have been using it for over a year now. Is your skin overly sensitive to products like mine is? Lately, even washing it with plain water would irritate it, that's why I switched to spring water.
Btw, I used to use Lush's moisturizers but I haven't for a few years ....do you like their products?
my face isnt as sensitive as my neck, but it can still be irritated easily.
what moisturizer are you using? doesnt seem goos to be leaving glycolic acid on your skin all day.. but im not sure
my skin reacts really well to oatmeal and honey right now, i love it:)
i might post pics soon too but so far my skin is sorda steady.. doesnt look worse or better. just feels a lot smoother.
and the spot treatment is the only lush product i use.. it helps heal my acne faster, but its not a miracle.
i wouldnt buy it again. and since their products are based around natural stuff.. its best to just through your own fruits in a blender and put it on than to spend your money on their overpriced stuff, just my opinion
Oh, I have the opposite issue...my neck isn't as sensitive as my face. I usually test out new products on my neck and my forehead because they are my least acne-prone areas.
The moisturizer I'm using is Boscia's black hydration gel....it's actually very lighweight and can serve as a primer too under makeup. http://www.sephora.c...ion-gel-P297568
I've been using it for over a year, but only recently have I been noticing scarring, so I'm not sure if it's related to the glycolic or other things I'm using. On sensitive areas like under the eye area I use murad's clean scene moisturizer because it's mild (and for teens, but hey, my skin breaks out like a teenager's so why not). I also started using again Neova's DNA damage repair because it has good SPF and zinc oxide, which helps calm down redness.
I used to use Korres pomegranate wipes to take my makeup off with no issues for years, and all of a sudden a few months ago I started getting a bad reaction to those too...my skin would get red and blotchy after using them and I think I was reacting to the fragrance, to which I wasn't sensitive before. So weird.
At least my skin has been feeling smoother, which makes the makeup go on more evenly and covers up all the mess underneath lol.
Yeah, I agree about lush products...a friend recommended their saltwater toner recently, but I think I could probably make my own version using natural ingredients with no fragrance. I used to love their moisturizer, but last time I ordered (about 3-4 years ago) the moisturizer looked moldy (it had a greenish tint and smelled funny). When I tried to return it they wouldn't take it back and told me that this sometimes happens because they do not use preservatives in their natural moisturizers. So I never ordered again...although I love that they don't use parabens in their moisturizers, but I don't want to put mold on my face lol
Supplements: inositol, DIM, digestive enzymes [don't need them every day anymore, only on cheat days], herpanacine & vitamin C with rose hips [not every day], regular sun exposure for vitamin D3.
Lifestyle & Skin Care: Low histamine diet, avoiding unnecessary stress, balancing skin's PH (using Image Ormedics), using distilled/ filtered water to wash face, occasional high frequency facials... (although I have been slacking lately)
