Best Exfoliator??

13 posts in this topic

I am currently on topical and oral antibiotics along with tazorac cream .1%. I read that topcial retinoids like tazorac help to PREVENT those small under the skin bumps (known as milia) but they don't do much to make them go away. I have them on my chin, forehead, and along my hairline. So, my question is what is the best exfoliator for me to use considering the medications I'm already taking? Thanks!

I currently have a huge one on my left side of my temple tried everything to get rid of it and nothing i used to have 2 huge ones on my neck area for 2 weeks and then i used the mircale exfoliating cloth for 3 days and its disappeared i'm currently using the cloth on my left temple area but i have to scrub it soft since that area is sensitive!!

The Best Exfoliating Cloth ever!!

Don't buy from EBAY or online you can get these CLOTHS or GLOVES at The Body Shop awesome exfoliator!!

It did look pretty Harsh when i saw and picked it up but I gently rub it all over my face so the dead skin cells can fall right onto the cloth...


Present Regimen:

Morning:

-Carley's Soap/Just Water

-Fruit of The Earth Aloe Vera Gel

-Everyday Minerals

Nighttime:

-Carley's Soap

Also substituting the FOTE Gel for the Forver Living Aloe First Spray sometimes.

Now that I think about it, I did purchase one of those exfoliating cloths off of ebay. It didn't help my acne but I do think it made my skin feel smoother overall. Maybe if I add this into my current regimen, I will notice more of a difference. I have quite a few on my chin area that seemed to diminish when I used masks/exfoliators. I am going to get one of those body shop cloths and see how it works. Thanks!

i really like st. ives medicated apricot scrub its not too harsh as long as you scrub gently its a great exfoliator with both SA and microscrubbers and it makes your skin smooth and feel geat its brining all my clogged pores to the surface and allowing me to clear them out soon i wont have any left woo hoo

haha..i was at wal-mart today and saw the medicated st. ives scrub and decided to buy it. I'm glad somebody already recommended it. I hope it works! I'm just curious as to when I should use it. In the morning I wash my face with dove soap and then put on clindamycin(topical antibiotic). I'm wondering if it would be okay to wash with the st. ives in the morning then put on the clindamycin? Will the combination of SA and clindamycin irritate my skin?

I've been using tazorac for 2 1/2 weeks now and it is definantly helping. I just thought maybe there was something else I could do to help those little bumps. I used the st. ives this morning and I liked how it made my skin feel but then when I looked in the mirror, I noticed that it brought up 3-4 new little bumps on my chin. I think I may just stick with the tazorac. Oh well..at least the scrub was only $2.92
