In Topic: Bare Minerals New Liquid Foundation

09 May 2014 - 12:07 AM

i know that they advertise it as a "complexion corrector" instead of a foundation. that may be way its so sheer. I had gotten a sample a month ago and never tried it because it looked so tiny and thought i wouldn't even be able to tell how it looked. maybe I'll try it now. let me know how you like it!


In Topic: A Lot Of Chin/jaw Acne

29 April 2014 - 12:13 AM

Chin and Jawline acne is usually hormonal acne and very prominent in females. Since you have never had a problem with it before and it suddenly showing up it may be a kind of "purging" of your skin and there were a lot of clogged pores in that area. Stick it out a few more weeks and if it keeps coming up then it could be something else, not the Regimen. Try changing your pillow case as often as you can or sleep with a fresh, clean towel over your pillow, these things can help minimize jaw/check acne. Also if you have recently changed your makeup or diet that can be a factor in it as well. The first week can be the worst for some people, it all depends on your skin type. I know its hard right now and since you have done it before and you a re having a different experience then it can be a bit disheartening since you were hoping it would work like last time. Things change over the years and especially with women's hormones and having kids that can do a lot as well. Keep going until you've been on it for at least a month and if you are still getting new breakouts in the same area consult a dermatologist and he may be able to tell you whether it is caused my a hormone fluctuation. Hope this helps a bit!


In Topic: 1St Week Advice Please!

28 April 2014 - 12:29 AM

Yes the first week BP is only used once a day! Only a pea size amount also, about 1/4 of a teaspoon. Im sure once you cut down and apply a good amount of moisturizer your skin will settle down! best of luck xx


In Topic: A Good Sunscreen

25 April 2014 - 11:04 AM

My favorite is Shisedo  Urban Enviroment Oil-Free UV Protector. It has an SPF of 42 (sorry its lower than you wanted!) But is super light feeling, goes on smooth and sinks right into the skin, non-greasy or oily and feels like you are almost not wearing anything! I love it and wear it on a daily basis. 

Shisedo also does a 50+ called Ultimate Sun Protection Cream+ (for face only) and Lotion+ (for face and body) this one is really good as well but is not oil-free and is thicker. I used to use this during the summer because i wanted a lot of protection but I am one of those people that hate the way sunblock feels and this feels like sunblock.

Hope these options help!

In Topic: Thoughts On Green Tea And Cutting Out Dairy?

25 April 2014 - 10:57 AM

About 8 months ago i went vegan after being a vegetarian and there was a huge difference in my complexion! But then a few months ago I started having dairy here and there again and my face went crazy. Now I cut it back out but am stuck with getting rid of my acne and the scarring. I recommend cutting out dairy (of EVERYTHING that means no cheese, milk, milk products, yogurt etc) for a few months and seeing what happens. I know it works for a lot of people. There are a lot of alternatives to all these things, although some of the vegan options take some time getting used to (but now whenever i eat cheese it really grosses me out). Just give it a try for a few months and BE STRICT on yourself, because sometimes just the smallest bit of dairy can mess everything up. I know a girl that stopped consuming dairy for years and then started again and broke out in horrible cystic acne that took here even longer to get rid of. Everything is worth a shot, so give it up for a few months and if you see a difference then great! if not, then you can go back to your regular eating habits.

 

As for green tea, it is very good for you. I would recommend at least 3 cups a day. Hot is the best way to drink it with no added sugars or anything (you'll get rid of all the good stuff if you do this) you can drink it cold also, its just not as powerful. You can add a tad bit of honey, i know that doesn't completely make the green tea loose all its antioxidants and such and honey is really good for you but honey also loosing a lot of its great factors when added to hot drinks. So that kinda sucks for a green tea and honey drink but if you can't handle the taste of plain green tea had a teaspoon of honey. hope this helps! :-)
