In Topic: What Does Clear Skin Feel Like?

02 July 2013 - 04:39 AM

Hello :)

 

I've finally got my acne under control, and except for the occasional small spot my skin is clear. My acne used to be moderate-severe, and at the time I had completely forgotten what it was like to have clear skin. Now that I have it, I can't quite believe it. Being a girl, it is lovely to be able to leave the house without lashings of make-up! However, I do remain completely paranoid. I'm convinced that if I do the slightest thing to upset my skin, the acne will come back. Every time a new spot appears I freak out a little, wondering if this is where everything goes wrong. Even if my skin is clear from the actual acne, it is covered in red marks from where spots were. Some days these can really get me down. Although applying aloe vera seems to be working to fade them. 

 

Sorry for the rambling post! In answer to your question it feels great, but having had acne has resulted in a paranoia which means I can't really relax and enjoy my skin. Or just move on. Hopefully one day I will. And I hope your acne goes away for you :)

In Topic: Lumie Light And Accutane

21 February 2013 - 02:57 PM

I don't know for certain, I've never been on accutane but my understanding of it is that it can make your skin very sensitive to light. Something to do with the high levels of vitamin A in it. The Lumie uses LED lights which shouldn't be that invasive. Having said that, my Lumie always leaves my skin very red and irritated looking, but that could be because I have stupidly sensitive skin. If your skin isn't that sensitive you should probably be okay :) check with your doctor, but I think it would be safe.
