In Topic: Would Salicylic Acid In Foundations Be Safe To Use While On The Acne.org Regi...

13 December 2014 - 11:31 AM


My daughter has been using that concealer for about a year now (while on the regimen) and she loves it!  I think that the amount of salicylic acid in it is so low that it does not cause irritation (1% I believe), You should be fine with it unless your skin is super dry or already irritated from the benzoyl peroxide.  Just my opinion.

Good luck.

jojoba oil made me break out horribly - so maybe it is not the aha?

just a thought

In Topic: Hormonal Acne And Actual Adrenal Treatment-Anyone Thought About It

Sorry to hear of your struggles but don't give up!

I don't know where you live, but if you are in Canada there is a line of products by Lorna Vanderhaeghe which my daughter and I have both used with success.  Lorna is well known here and you can read about her products and research on her website www.healthanimmunity.com (she also has several books on women's health).

FYI I am in no way associated with her I have just found her products to be of a good quality and very helpful. These are herbal supplements and not prescriptions so it usually takes a few months to see the benefit.

My daughter takes Adrenasmart (support for the adrenal glands) and has noticed a difference in her overall mood and stress level. I take Glucosmart (helps with blood sugar levels) and we both take Estrosmart.  You may benefit from Estrosmart as well which helps balance your hormones.  Anyway it may be worth taking a look at her literature. Just a suggestion!

Good luck.

ps. I have read articles that say that drinking spearmint tea (not peppermint) everyday helps reduce androgen levels.

In Topic: How Long To See Any Results From Glycolic Acid (Aha+)

31 October 2014 - 12:12 PM

From my experience aha (glycolic acid) didn't help with the hyperpigmentation at all (I used Dan's from the Regimen). It is great for getting rid of flakes and moisturizing the skin however.  Some hyperpigmentation fades on it's own (can take 6months+) otherwise you need something that speeds up the cell turnover of your skin like a retinoid.  Some people on this forum recommend azaelic acid although I am not familiar with it.

Good luck.

In Topic: Azelaic Acid And Tazorac In Combination

29 October 2014 - 12:13 PM

My daughter has been using Tazorac for 6 months now and all of her hyperpigmentation is gone.

Her dermatologist told her that if she was using any other topical (she used BP) to make sure she applied it at least 10 hrs away from the Tazorac or it could make it

(Tazorac) ineffective.

Going with that idea then, if you use the azelaic in the morning and the Tazorac at night it should be ok.

Just my opinion.

Good luck!
