In Topic: Is Anybody Here Just Thrilled With Their Foundation?

Love double wear light, still great coverage!  I mix it in with Charlotte Tilbury Wonder glow for more of a soft focus finish, really tempted to treat myself to the new NARS all day luminous foundation, it's just out in the UK and always heard great things about NARS, I love their creamy concealer.

Have you tried massaging the scar tissue?  I had a raised bump for a cyst that lasted about a year, I found using differin and massaging the area, as if pushing the lump back in gently seemed to help over time and now I can't feel it.  Google massage and scar tissue it can help break it down if it is raised, assuming that there is nothing left inside the cyst. It took about 6 months to a year for my cyst to go completely flat so consistency and time are important

Thank you for posting your journey and sharing it with us.  I have looked at subscion a couple of times but a bit nervous about the procedure, some of the before an after pictures on the net are so unreliable so it's great to follow real persons journey and honest opinion on the procedure.  I think 3 days is still fairly earlier, it will probably be the best part of a week before any swelling should noticeably reduce, stay strong and keep doing what your doing.  I would add any other treatments like suction in at the moment, let your skin heal from the subscision first. Remember that healing collagen formation can take time, months even so you may see your results getting better over time.  You're very pretty and seem like a lovely person, wishing you all the best

Have you tried a retinoid cream or gel?  I have been using differin for about a year and a half now, I also was prescribed dianette and I am now on cilest.  As well as the differin I like to use aha in my regimen to clear out my pores so I have an aha wash and a salycilic acid serum that I alternate with the differin.  Moisturiser is important too, I often apply my topicals over my moisturiser if my skin is too dry and only use cream cleanser with a wash cloth or tissue to take off.  Would you consider going back on birth control?  I'll probably stay on mine until I decide to have kids, my skin is too unpredictable without it.  Your skin really isn't that bad but I know how frustrating it can be.  I was also off the pill a few years ago and skin was fine for about a year then gradually got worse again, so I've kinda admitted defeat on that one xx

Dianette was amazing for my skin but the doctor advised that I switch. I have now been on cilest ( which I think is the UK version of ortho cyclen or ortho tri cyclen) for about four months with no problems.  I have tried mercelon or marvelon in the past ( can't remember which, but it worked well also.  I always steer away from progestin based pills and go for a combined pill.
