Switching From Bp To Aha

07 June 2013 - 01:25 PM

People may not still be on here if so, but has anyone had luck switching from bp to AHA? I've had amazing clearing with bp, but the bleaching and dryness are impinging on my lifestyle, and I'm wondering (as terrified as I am) if it's time to try AHA+ instead.

I'm going to start with AHA+ in the mornings and bp at night, and slowly cut down on the bp until maybe I can limit it to once or twice a week. That would be amazing. Though, it is hard to keep a once a week regimen-- much easier to have a daily schedule than a weekly one.

 

Best,

Wool And Breakouts?

05 December 2012 - 02:34 AM

Not sure if this is the best forum to put this in, but I was wondering if anyone knew if the lanolin in wool could cause breakouts? I know the irritation can, and that lanolin has antibacterial properties, but could it also clog pores?
Thanks!

Bp Time- How Long?

13 August 2012 - 01:55 AM

I was wondering, how long does it take for you guys' bp to dry? I've talked about this in posts before, but I really feel like mine takes forever to dry despite rubbing it in and having completely dry skin beforehand.

Also, while I'm posting, I get super dry hands from putting the bp on my back. Other than using a tool, what do you guys do to prevent this?

Hope everyone is well!

Thoughts On Hormones

26 May 2012 - 01:43 PM

Okay, I have a question-- if the hormones that rise during PMS are progesterone and estrogen, why do treatments like BCP and Spiro, medications that would increase prog. and est. in relation to other hormones, work for premenstrual acne?

Thanks!

Holi

23 March 2012 - 05:29 PM

So, I just participated in a holi festival. While it was a HUGE blast, I'm now freaking out. The color won't come off, even after vigorous scrubbing, both of which I'm scared will worsen my acne. And I know the powdered dyes you get sprayed with are supposed to be really irritating and drying and people develop rashes, to which I'm prone.
Anyone else play holi this or some other year, and, if so, have any tips?
