Dinair Airbrush Foundation?

30 May 2014 - 11:02 AM

Hi again everyone!
So I was researching water based/light foundations, and I came across Dinair Airbrush makeup. I've been reading reviews, and everyone says that it never breaks them out, looks great, and feels really light. I'm really interested in purchasing it. However, it definitely is not cheap.
Have any of you tried this or heard much about it? Right now, my foundation is Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse. I've used it for years, but it's really heavy and VERY hard to remove. It also really highlights my dry areas from BP. I would really love for Dinair to work out. It's the most sanitary option out there as well, as no brushes, fingers, or sponges are used.
What do you guys think?
 


Best Light, Easy To Remove Foundation?

28 May 2014 - 12:24 PM

Hi everyone!
So I am possibly going to cosmetology school this fall. I'm all about not wearing foundation every day, but I feel like there will be days where I want to not look gross in school (especially on days where I will be working with clients). I don't know, I feel like a lot of clients wouldn't want their hair done by someone with acne marks and occasional acne flare ups... sad.png 
Anyway, have any of you found a super light weight foundation that provides a decent amount of coverage, but didn't break you out after wearing it for hours? I also would like the foundation to be easy to remove at the end of the day so I don't have to rub and irritate my skin to get it off.
Any recommendations?


Best Vitamins To Take?

15 March 2014 - 01:21 PM

Hello everyone.
So I'm getting really desperate, as it feels like I've tried almost everything. Recently I've read about vitamins and how they can really cure/help some people's acne.
My esthetician has me on micellized Vitamin A... It's in liquid form. I've been taking it for about three weeks, and the first two weeks I was getting NO new pimples! That is the first time that has happened in months. I was thrilled. But last week I broke out like crazy. Not little pimples but really red and painful ones that extended far under the skin, but had heads.
I'm hoping that it isn't the Vitamin A, or maybe it's the vitamin clearing me out.. I don't know.
BUT ANYWAY. I'm thinking of starting to take tablets of Vitamin D3, as I've heard it has cured some people. What other vitamins should I take along with the D3 that would really amp it up? What brand of Vitamin D3 should I get? 
Really hoping this works... I'm feeling really hopeless. 

Btw I'm deathly allergic to fish, so I can't take the vitamin D3 tablets that have cod oil in them.


My Mental Health Is Destroyed... Please Send Good Vibes.

09 March 2014 - 11:26 PM

Hey guys.

So at the beginning of last summer, I became obsessed with my worsening acne. I decided to make a change and made the BIGGEST MISTAKE OF MY LIFE. I read and researched everything there was to know about diet and acne on this website. Before I even knew what happened, all I was eating as cabbage and occasionally gluten free waffles . That was the beginning of my eating disorder.

Months later, I have now been diagnosed with BDD with awareness(basically I know my skin isn't that bad, yet I believe it is. It's confusing and I hate it), OCD, Restrictive Food Intake Disorder, anxiety/social anxiety, and depression, all because of my stupid acne.
All of my dreams have gone out the window, I see no one anymore, and I can't eat anything without having a panic attack, in fear of breaking out. I go into the bathroom with the lights off so I don't have to see myself. If I get one tiny pimple, I fall deeper into depression, regret everything I ate that week, and hate myself even more.

My skin isn't even that bad. I'm working with an esthetician who literally works magic on acne, but I'm still not happy. I'm afraid of screwing everything up and going back to square one.
I am wasting away, losing weight again (down to 90 pounds) and never feel happy. The determined young girl is completely gone. I'm literally a shell.

I am living in hell, a prisoner in my own mind. I'm finally seeing a therapist and I have my first meeting with a dietitian coming up.
Please send your good vibes my way, and I'll send mine to everyone else suffering. I needed to get this off my chest and warn everyone before they start researching diet and acne, PLEASE BE CAREFUL. I was stupid and took EVERYTHING EVERYONE SAID ON HERE way too seriously, and ate myself into a corner. Now I am a different girl than I was. Like I said, a shell of a human being.
Sending my love. <3


Acupuncture Treatment

12 September 2013 - 10:55 PM

Hey everyone!
So, like many of the users on this forum, I am fed up with Retin-A, Accutane, birth control, etc being forced upon me, and doctors saying that "These are the only cures". After a lot of research, I have decided to start getting acupuncture for my possibly hormonal acne.


Do you think it will work? I've heard of a number of people curing their acne from acupuncture.


I will keep you guys all updated on the progress! Hopefully it works for me, and I can recommend it to you all!
