#3382450 Skin Update!

Posted by Madeleine24 on 14 September 2013 - 12:44 AM

Several months ago I posted photos of my skin http://www.acne.org/...tos-of-my-skin/


I am now happy to say my skin is coming along nicely smile.png. It feels like a constant battle still...once it clears up it comes back again sad.png. My main concern now is marks leftover from acne, which the SkinDoctors should help with if I am patient!


I have been using Skin Doctors Gamma Hydroxy Forte morning and night, sometimes having a few days break from it as it is quite strong! Cleansing with Cetaphil and moisturizing with Ultraceuticals Protective Daily Moisturizer SPF 30 you could use any basic oil free moisturizer with sun protection. I just chose this because it was a product I had sitting in my cupboard, Dermalogica was stinging my skin with the strong treatments I am using. Oh and if I am wearing makeup I cleanse with Estee Lauder Perfectly Clean foaming cleanser, again something I just had stashed away in my cupboards. I find this does a really good job at getting the makeup off which Cetaphil doesn't.

Yes clearisil lol not clean and clear. They seem like the same to me anyway. I know tell me about it, my hormones are suddenly whack and I always have it... The one week a month I don't have it my skin clears up lol

I am impressed that the clean and clear is working. I never liked their products that much. I actually use a clay cleanser myself and it's not drying at all. I love it.

My skin looks the same, and Acne treatments aren't really helping at all! I wonder how it could have developed this?


Do you think Tea Tree products would help and plain natural yogurt seeing as it's a fungus? I checked the ingredients of H&S it contains no ketacanazole and also Dimethicone which is a known pore clogging ingredient. Beware. 


And BTW your skin looks amazing, it's healed up incredibly well! I wish my skin looked like yours! I've had these stubborn bumps for months.

aanabill, that's exactly what I am saying. Both parents could have perfect skin and the child could STILL end up with acne. 


Besides, you've got to let your children be who they want to be. Your son might not want to be athletic, he may pursue art, music or aviation instead.
