In Topic: My Life & Acne

I know exactly how you feel. I'd cry every single night before i went on Accutane...

But in reality - it's not that important to other as you think it is. Many of my friends have acne and I NEVER SEE ANY. Never. When i think of their faces, i can't even remember how acne would look like on them.. It's like it's not there. And i might subconsciously look at their acne sometimes when we talk but it's like a quick glance it doesn't mean anything  and you think about it when you do it. it's like a glance at their hair or nose.. It's nothing. But you might be questioning yourself oh god, did they notice, do they hate me, are they disgusted? It's not like that.

And i've learnt one quite interesting thing while experiencing the both perspectives. When i had acne the easiest way was just look down and pretend i wasn't there and avoid all the eye contact avoid seeing their eyes traveling all over my face...But i didn't know back then, people notice it. People see and feel you're avoiding, they feel how bad you feel, they feel your insecurities. It makes them uncomfortable and awkward because they don't know what to do. And some might use the fact you don't appreciate yourself for bringing you down or using you. When you don't love yourself, others won't either because they see they can "afford you! "

if you show confidence, acne won't matter. I've seen a lovely sight of numerous guys with acne, i didn't care i think acne made them sooooooo much more attractive just because i thought to myself: oh god he is so brave and so comfortable in his own skin he can do it all blah blah :D But it's the truth, my truth at least.

Yes, you should start applying only pea size amount! The things about retin-a; less means better.

And yes, moisturize everywhere. You get oily skin when your skin feels the need to combat the lack of moisturization. So, apply moisturizer.

I just found this article and it tells you everything you need to know: http://www.nytimes.c...anted=all&_r=1


In Topic: How ya feelin' about your acne today?

I feel like I want to take my skin off and replace it with a brand new baby skin. :) That would be so nice!

But I also know this won't happen so I work hard in every aspect to eventually get close to baby skin.

 

I remember when my relatives came over and my little cousin said: "You should tell your mom you have chickenpox! "

It was very rude of me to think he meant it in a bad way but that was couple of year ago, I've matured very much since then.

I'd still be angry today but I'd handle it differently. More cunningly.


In Topic: Starting Retin-A. What Should I Expect?

31 January 2013 - 04:09 AM

I also use Retin-A (o.o25%) and i've been using it every night from the very beginning. I use only Bioderma as a makeup remover and clenaser and then a good moisturizer.

I've been using Bioderma long enough(two months) to say this is excellent for very sensitive skin. For my eye makeup (if I have any) I will use olive oil just like you said.

It's good to take vitamins. It would be better to eat food that contains them though. Because food has all the things in it besides vitamins that helps them work.

Most of all, try to eat a lot of proteins since rna translation can't happen without aminoacids. The best thing you could do is eat some protein with vitamin C(fish with a bit of lemon) before sleep and your skin will feel so supple and renewed in the morning. Why? Because It will be literally renewed. Your skin can't be nice if you don't give it materials it needs to renew, to repair itself.


In Topic: Question About Retin A

30 January 2013 - 05:16 PM

I would recommend using just the concentration you are using and also, why would you use two different products, both so aggressive?

I would only use one thing if I were you. Putting more effort into being persistent but gentle rather than aggressive. Skin is confused and because of irritation can even start breaking out more than it should.

Putting BP and Retin-A on such thin skin... This is really harsh!
