#3305677 Narcissism?

Posted by Elsewhere on 26 November 2012 - 06:40 AM

You are not a narcissist. My boyfriend has occasionally thought I was absofuckinglutely nuts to pour so much attention into my skin - but the truth of the matter is I have to live inside this body, not him. It's up to me to decide what I feel good in - and keeping my skin as clear as possible (and finding the nesscary support in doing so) is paramount.

Priorities. And there's nothing wrong with skincare being one of them.

#3304525 I've Had Acne So Long That I Feel Like Turning My Life Around Won't E...

This is a fantastic post. There is a saying I like "Make positive effort for the good." Sometimes all I can do for that is to just get out of bed and go to work. That's it. Wake up, go to work, come home and collapse into bed. But those days have to count - we all need our small victories. Thank you for writing this, it was beautiful to read.


#3304433 Amount Of 5% Benzoyl Peroxide Use. Whole Skin Or On Affected Area?

Posted by Elsewhere on 21 November 2012 - 11:02 PM

For five percent I would stick with half of what Dan suggests. http://www.acne.org/regimen.html

If you go down a bit, you'll see the "Treat" discussion (Step 2) - click on the "Expand for Dosage". It's generally recommended that you use BP on any acne prone area - it helps prevent breakouts as well. (So for me, it always goes on entire face, chest, and often behind the ears and upper shoulders.)


#3304105 Quick Thanks To Dan

This is why Dan is my hero. He is, first and foremost, concerned with eradicating acne. Truly altruistic.
