In Topic: At home chemical peels compared to professional?

24 November 2009 - 09:31 PM

I got a 15 or 20% (can't remember) salicylic acid peel.. it's the MUAC (makeup artist choice) brand.  I love it.  I've used it plenty and it always refreshes my skin and makes pimples shrink and my skin glows.  I just used it a couple days ago and my skin has been a bit flaky, but other than that, all is good. smile.gif

Everyone is different, some people never get IB's, some people do.  The IB's can last from anywhere from a couple weeks to a few months.  I personally got a really bad IB starting after the first week of taking it.  I'm going to be starting my 3rd month in about 8 days and I am finally just starting to clear up now.  I not by any means close to being clear yet, but the severe breakouts have stopped lol.  I'm confident by the 6th month mark, I'll be completely clear.  

Also, my breasts don't often get sore, only when I'm close to starting my period.  I woke up this morning and they felt a little sore, but it went away.  I started noticing less oil half way through my 2nd month.

Perfect!  Thank you biggrin.gif

In Topic: Finacea and salicylic acid?

18 February 2009 - 10:11 AM

Nope it'll be fine smile.gif  I use 2% salicylic acid whips with finacea with no problem.  If anything, the salicylic acid would help the finacea absorb more since it's an exfoliant.

I don't post here often, but I saw this thread and got sucked in...

Bee Yummy Skin Food: Just got it yesterday and it's already my HG moisturizer. It doesn't smell all that great since it's all natural, but it feels wonderful. My hands get super dry and scratched up from washing/drying/brushing dogs all day (yep. that's my job.) and it works wonders. Really looking forward to how it does on my face. I hear it fades marks...only time will tell.

Smoky Mountain Minerals foundation & all purpose concealer: Looks like I'm wearing nothing at all, quick and easy to use, and I've been breakout free since I started using it in July. Nice.

hehe, did you find out about bee yummy from highonhealth's blog?  I've been dying to try out that moiusterizer myself...

Also, I love Smokey Mountain Minerals!  They are pretty "underground" for a MMU company, aren't they?
