#3443903 Aha?

Posted by AyeAye on 28 July 2014 - 12:14 AM

AHA helped with my blackheads and under-skin bumps.  Perhaps as others have suggested above BHA's may work better for this purpose but for me personally, AHA worked really well to get my skin smooth, blackhead and bump free (along with BP that is).

#3443899 Need Help! I'm Losing Hope

Posted by AyeAye on 28 July 2014 - 12:05 AM

This is the most trying time im afraid.  The only advice I can give you is to hang in there.  Make sure you're following the instructions exactly with no variation, and just when you think its not going to improve, you'll see improvement.  We've all been there before and its not easy but stick with it!  Good luck :)

#3436987 The Regime: Some Questions

Posted by AyeAye on 19 June 2014 - 07:08 PM

Avoid the sunbed, and apply SPF while you're away and you should be fine.  Also make sure you wear a hat.....if your skin isnt used to the sun you may find that you will start breaking out due to sweating and sun exposure.


ETA:   I live in Australia where its pretty hot for most of the year.  I wear SPF 20 on my face every day with no issues, but I do wear a cap if I'm going to the beach etc.

#3425200 Cephalexin Smell?

Posted by AyeAye on 09 April 2014 - 12:02 AM

I don't know about the medication that you're taking, but I know that if my boyfriend takes berocca (vitamin B drink) I can smell it through his pores the next day.  Maybe ask a family member if they can smell it on you? :)

#3421605 Acne.org Members That Have Commited Suicide

Posted by AyeAye on 20 March 2014 - 10:10 PM

Honouring the memory of people who have lost their lives is important for friends and family members.  Discussing and speculating on details of a past acne.org member who may or may not have taken their own lives is not honouring their memory, its gossip - pure and simple.  As Garrett has already mentioned above, sensitive subjects like this can be disrespectful and hurtful to friends and family who have lost someone, and as such, this subject is closed.

I'm unsure how to edit tags, but if you want a title changed, just report the thread and request the title to be changed.  A moderator will get to it :)

#3410999 Will The Regimen Work Now That I Seem To Be Immune To Benzoyle Peroxide?

Posted by AyeAye on 28 January 2014 - 11:45 PM

I second everything Lilly has said above.  Give the regimen a go, but expect a bit of redness and dryness in the first 8 weeks or so.


It is impossible for you to become 'immune' to bp, it may have been that you altered your routine in some way so it became less effective.


Good luck with whatever you decide to do. :)

#3409133 How Can View All Of A Users' Post/thread History?

Posted by AyeAye on 19 January 2014 - 08:03 PM

Clicking on 'find content' then "only posts" should show up the members forum history.  If only a few posts show up, then that is all they have posted.  If you let me know who you're trying to search I can see if it works.

#3383309 One Month In

Posted by AyeAye on 17 September 2013 - 11:45 PM

Congrats on your progress and for sticking it out through the initial tough stage.  I think your skin is looking a bit red, but its also looking great!  The redness is annoying but it soon fades....  Here's to more progress over the next 4 weeks! :)


ps.  why don't you include a link to your other post so that members can easily see your progress.  Its always so encouraging to fellow new comers to the regimen.

#3383299 Helpppp, Itchy Eczema Type Rash On Face

Posted by AyeAye on 17 September 2013 - 10:31 PM

Who knows.   Take both way from your regimen, recover and then introduce one at a time.  That should do the trick.


Good luck :)

#3383289 Exfoliation? Almost 12 Weeks In The Regimen

Posted by AyeAye on 17 September 2013 - 09:47 PM

I was clear for a couple of months on the regimen (5 months or so in) when I was tempted to use my dermalogica exfoliating pads.  OMG did my skin feel amazing that night, and when I put makeup on to go to a party my skin looked fantastic and the makeup sat beautifully.  Until 2 days later when I had an awful breakout which took a couple of weeks to clear again.


So my advice would be to give it a go, but be mentally prepared for an adverse reaction (however you might be one of the lucky ones! :) )
