In Topic: At home chemical peels compared to professional?

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.

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 thought I'd update as well.  Things are still the same since the last time I reported.  Same improvement, no change since then.  It's obviously something that is going to be slow working though.  As for breakouts, I'm still breaking out a ton for some reason, but I blame that on other reasons ie: too much drinking, certain supplements I introduced, etc.  I'm not sure if the serrapeptase is contributing to my breakouts a little bit or not.
