Saw Palmetto Making Acne Worse?

04 November 2013 - 12:44 PM

So, I have not had any problems with redness, scarring, or gigantic breakouts for a long long time. Well, I've recently started taking saw palmetto, because I read lots of reviews and posts saying that it helped tremendously. Well. It's only been about a week, maybe I'm not giving it enough time. But almost out of nowhere, my skin is now very red and I have at least 13 pimples in one area of my face. Has anyone taken sp and had a bad initial first month or so? Please, help. I need to know if I should just stop taking this stuff completely. Thank you. :)

What Could Be The Cause Of This?

13 July 2013 - 07:12 AM

Alright, so at any given moment, my skin is 90% clear, but when pimples do pop up, they're never harmless little red marks, or even black heads, or even whiteheads. Always, they are deep painful mounds with no head. No amount of spot treatment will make these babies budge, I sometimes have to wait up to a month for them to subside. It's so annoying!!! I use CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser, CeraVe PM moisturizer, and have stuck to washing my face only twice a day. So, I'm not using harsh products all over my face, the texture and tone has improved vastly since using this routine, but still, I get these stupid cystic pimples and I don't know what's up with my skin. :/ am I the only one with this issue?

Do You Have To Use A Different Moisturizer At Night Than During The Day?

05 March 2013 - 05:35 PM

I just got the Neutrogena Rapid Tone repair day and night moisturizers. The only difference I've really noticed is a slightly different texture, and a lack of SPF in the night version. So, why are there two different ones. I know many people use different ones at night than during the day. Is this necessary? Is it due to the SPF, more potent ingredients, the difference in texture, or what? I was previously using the Aveeno Positively Radiant Moisturizer, and I used it both day and night and didn't really see any negative effects. Help! :)

Ingredients To Avoid?!

04 March 2013 - 12:32 PM

Alright, so my acne is what I believe to be moderate. I don't break out very much anymore, but when I do, it's a big cyst farm on my face! :( I can go most days without wearing makeup, but some days, I just like to have a little coverage. When I was younger, I thought I needed the heaviest of the heavy, but I've grown to realize that sheer-medium coverage is all I Need. I've been experimenting with bb creams lately and have not been impressed at all! What are some ingredients in cosmetics that go directly onto skin (foundation, powders, tinted moisturizer, etc.) that I should avoid. My skin is extremely sensitive so all of the advice you awesome folks can give me will be much appreciated! By me AND my face. :)
