In Topic: Using Cetaphil- How To Deep Clean?

12 March 2014 - 02:08 PM

No such thing as "deep cleaning". Nothing gets deep down into the pore.

I find I have to do several washes with cetaphil, and it won't remove  makeup  at all. Other products do a better job.

 

I want to be able to cleanse as effectively as posssible after facial  steaming.

 

More 'effective'  cleaner   than 'deep', if that will   enable you to answer the question.

estee lauder double wear is my number 1 go to product for coverage. I seriously can make a red inflamed face look flawless with this stuff.

 

There are quite a few products out there, but I even find the double wear more effective than concealers.

 

For applying I would use fingers to press product into the skin, and build as many layers as needed. In my experience pressing gives better coverage than beauty blenders or brush.

I just went to ebay looked at the mid price range and looked at reviews.


In Topic: Dermajet Or Single Needle

I would say single needle, especially if your skin between the scars is reasonably smooth. 

 

In my experience my skin became ripply from rolling. It was much smoother prior.

 

It did help my scars- but didn't help the skin texture in general.


In Topic: Could Nyone Explain The Tca Cross Method, Like How To Apply It

22 February 2014 - 07:39 AM

ok so did a bit of reading on the cross method i use 100% tca on an icepick scar and make sure not to hit the edges of the icepick scar just literally only the middle of the icepick scar. and you do this by stretching skin before appying it with a toothpick and you keep it stretched until your skin frosts then you can let go.

 

did i get the right info? and if anyone has any other tips from their experience with tca cross method let me know please thanks in advance

If you are anything like me- scars ranging in size- it is necessary to file down the toothpick so it is somewhat blunt, and fine enough to go into the middle. Some of my scars no matter how much I stretched the skin it would touch the sides/frost the edges. I haven't noticed any additional damage on the scars where it touched the sides though. 

Might help to use a lower percentage and layer so you have more control of where the acid is going at first.
