In Topic: How Long Before The Flaking Stops?

Sorry for the late reply - for some reason I don't get notified if someone quotes me or responds even if I ask for notifications.

Anyway, my daughter used the AHA both morning and night, in the morning just on it's own and at night mixed with moisturizer.

Hope you found what works for you!

I agree with megtree, your skin looks pretty awesome to me and I can't see any redness.

I would also agree with her advice and suggest that you stay away from tea tree oil which may irritate/burn your skin and use the cream from your derm.

Again I don't think you really need to do anyhtning to your face but if you must maybe use  the rosewater toner suggested or a gentle, non comdogenic moisturizer.

But seriously you look great!

In Topic: Ziana And Cerave + Theatrical Makeup?

I agree with SiriBai!

Wipes are not the way to go. Also look at your witch hazel and if it contains alcohol (some does and some doesn't) I would ditch that too.  So just use your regular cleaner to get the theatrical make up off your face. The makeup is probably not helping your skin but you have to wear it so just try and get it all off when your done.


I also agree that you should clean your phone and pillowcase frequently,.


good luck.

In Topic: Moisturizing After Tea Tree Oil Use?

27 January 2015 - 01:34 AM

In my opinion it is best to use tea tree oil as a spot treatment rather than all over your face.  You don't have a lot of blemishes so it should work well that way. If you want to put moisturizer on top of the tea tree oil a gentle moisturizer might be best rather than one with salicylic acid so you don't irritate your skin. 

You could always wash your face in the morning and then apply the moisturizer with salicylic acid.  Then in the evening clean your face and apply the tea tree on certain spots and maybe just leave it (ie. no moisturizer at overnight).  I don't know your skin so if it is very dry then maybe you need moisturizer overnight, sometimes you just need to try things for a bit to see what works for you.

Just my two cents worth!

Good luck.



In Topic: Pantene Pro V Shampoo And Conditioner Caused My Adult Acne!

That's awesome that you discovered what was causing your problem!  I had no idea that those products could cause the problem. Thanks for sharing.

Do you mind me asking what shampoo/conditioner you are now using?
