In Topic: Does A Good Moisturizer Even Exist?

09 July 2015 - 11:30 PM

I finally found  a moisturizer that works really well! It's 'EltaMD AM Therapy Facial Moisturizer'. Mind you it's pricey, but it rates really low (<2) on the COSDNA rating. and It does a great job moisturizing.
Not sure where you live - but there is also one made by 'CeraVE' , also the AM moisturizer which is a lot cheaper but also works very well and is non comedogenic.
Good luck.

In Topic: Suggestion For Natural Moisturizer

You could try an oil like jojoba or hemp oil.  Coconut oil seems to break a lot of people out and I have personally never heard of milk as a moisturizer. Jojoba oil (which is available on this site as part of the Regimen) doesn't agree with everyone either so it can be trial and error.  Hemp oil is the only oil that has an "0" rating on the comedogenic scale which means there is absolutely nothing in it to clog your pores or irritate your skin.
Good luck.

In Topic: Severe Acne Out Of Nowhere

Sorry to hear about your outbreak.
I have heard of people getting acne from fish oil pills, especially if they are not of high quality they can even be rancid. What type were you taking?
Never heard of zinc or vitamin d causing acne but that doesn't mean it can't happen. 
And you didn't change your diet at all?

It usually takes 3-6 months to see the full effect of BP so if you have only been on it for a month then you need to give it more time.  Don't give up on it and try something else just yet.  You need to be patient, even if it is hard.  After 4 months of using BP if there is no improvement then you might want to try something else.
Just my opinion.
Good luck.

In Topic: Mia 2 Or Clinique Brush Or None?

06 July 2015 - 10:53 AM

My daughter had moderate acne and her dermatologist told her not to use her clarisonic mia brush (which she had just bought!) because he said it would most likely not help her acne and could very possibly make it worse. He said even the softest brush to use with the mia 2 can cause irritation for people who have acne and spread the bacteria around. He feels that gentle is better so she just washes her face with her hands (not even a washcloth).  Her face has improved greatly (she is also using topicals  he prescribed however).

Of course everyone reacts differently and it may work for you so this is just my two cents worth!

I think it is wise of you to get input from people who actually have acne rather than people who have perfect skin.
Good luck.
