In Topic: Travelling : Backpacking Essentials?

Just use a baby wipe brand, for sensitive skin. Products for babies are pure and more secure for any type of skin. Baby wipes are excellent choice. I use them daily to take off the make up and then i wash my face. You can have a mild face lotion with you and dab it on your face with the wipe for extra feeling of cleaness. Plus the baby wipes packaging contains about 70 wipes, while the make up removing towelletes around 30 or less!!


ahhh that sounds great!!

In Topic: Antibiotics And Birth Control Together?

21 April 2014 - 09:31 AM

I had awful, painful cystic acne all over my face, mostly my chin, mouth and jawline, like you, and I was put on Minocycline and I immediately saw drastic results within three weeks. By the third month, I was almost clear save for a couple little pimples (which i really didn't mind , i'd rather have tiny bumps rather than having quarter sized cysts). She then told me to continue on the antibiotic and added the birth control Alesse to see if the rest of the remaining acne would go away.

Today, I must say that my face has never been this clear since a year and half ago! I'm only on my first month on birth control, so I'm not sure of its true impact yet, and I'm still on minocycline, and I still have two months or so worth of prescription left. The true test is whether I can remain clear even without the antibio. :/


I still have post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation but that'll go away with time.

In Topic: Are We Really Our Worst Critics?

In my case, it's the other ppl who are more critical towards me.

I'm not my own worst critic nor am I in denial, because  I know I have very bad skin. It is what it is. Take it or leave it,

Honestly, I'd trade my scars for yours anytime!! They're really not as noticeable as you think. I think we'd have to be really really really close up to your face to see them like how they are presented in your picture. No need to worry more than necessary smile.png


It's great to know that you're hearing from this guy again! smile.png
