Day 45

Still using Environ. The first impression from the cosmetics is very good. The fragrances are nice. I like the textures too. It doesn't dry my skin and hydrates it. Seems like it's a bit smoother than before...Or maybe, it only seems to me... But no effect on the spots by now. Not enough time to speak about the results. Reading the articles on the internet meanwhile and people are writing different things about it: for some it's good, some are not satisfied with what they get. Still don't hav

Day 35

So, to begin with, wold like to say that Environ is an "expensive pleasure". Comparing to Dermalogica. The line responsible for acne here is called B-active. They have a lot of everything. As I'm not a Rockefeller's granddaughter, I decided to be very serious about chosing the products. Here we go: B-active Sebuwash B-active Sebuspot AVST1 (moisturizer) Actually, they have other Sebu-stuff but I took the main products: something to clean the skin, something to fight with the spots

Day 32

...And so I saw my dermatologist. Made a few blood tests as probably it can be the hormonal changes which cause the acne at my age. Will remind you, I'm 23. The hormones my doc was interested in are testosterone and mammotropic hormone. And so, of course, my testosterone is higher..tadaaaah!!! So, I was suggested to have a course of hormonal pills but I've been through this already and no huge improvements (besides hormones are still hormones!) My aunt is a doc and she promised to prescr

Day 24

Well, well, well...I'm still using Dermalogica..Don't know...but my skin started to be sooo dry...Haven't decided yet what could cause it: mask or booster or both...What if I use it too much...or maybe I apply it wrong...Jesus Christ, I definitely do something wrong.... My diet pisses me off!!! I can't drink black coffee anymore and yes (!!!) I do love cheeses and I will eat'em. We live only once and I can't limit myself all my life. Bygones. What can I say..I'm a sad trash today) Just reali

Day 19

Hello, everybody! So, the summer has come to the UK too...Finally no more rains...good, sunny weather....Yeeeeaaaaahhhh..Which is very nice because the sun improves my skin a lot))) What about you? Did you notice any changes on your skin during summer when you turn your faces to the UV, eh? Trying (in vains) to find any article or post or anything to convince myself that sun really helps when you have acne pron skin...but..nope...nothing My skin really looks better and not onl

Day 15

So, hello everybody! Do the mud and clay masks help??? In my life I tried many things. Muds are really something worth of mentioning. There are lots of them: black muds, blue muds, red muds, white muds....choose any you like. Would like to highlight the benefits of the black mud which is suitable for all skin types, but is especially effective for skin suffering from an excessive oiliness. The thing is that the minerals which are contained in the masks are able to penetrate the deep skin la

Day 12

So, it was Dermalogica. It was nice). The therapist asked about my skin concerns and what products i am currently using. My skin concerns are (as you all probably aware): constant breakouts and not actually having a professionally prescribed regime (must admit). The therapist spent a long time looking at my skin - had to examine it before offering a facial for my skin type. The problem was obvious, of course) The whole thing lasted smth like 45 min and I almost fell asleep. What's very interes

Day 11

I've tried one interesting thing - honey and found out that it works as a nice antiseptic on skin. Yes, it can dry it a lot if you apply a thic layer of honey as a mask on all your skin face. But if you apply it locally on the problem spots, it will be better already in 2 days, take my word for it. So, today is my first treament with Dermalogica. Excited to try it, excited to see how my skin will feel after. Excited to talk to a beautician. It's important to do the facials when it's not irrit

Day 8

Huh...Got a bit upset with the reports on the internet about this Dermalogica. Seems, like, yeah..there's no universal product that helps (all of the beauticians I called were like "ohh, it's so good! the clients love it!) But will make a facial first, talk to a cosmetologist and after make conclusions. You speak about diets? Maybe I really should. I've never killed my body with junk food, you know..I don't smoke (if you do, you may forget about good skin - this is sure). ALCOHOL. This is s

Day 7

I've got an appointment! going to a beauty salon on Monday! Tadaaaah!!! The girl works on Dermalogica (c'mon, seems like whole London is crazy about it: in 7 salons I called, 5 work with thos stuff). So if it's so popular then maybe it really works. But hmmm..we all know that a good product should not be advertised. We'll see, we'll see.... Today on my way to home noticed a poster with "Perfectil"... I've never been so interested in taking pills as it's health, ppl!!! But I'm just curious. May

Day 6

The skin looks better a little bit. Tried Jojoba oil on it...and it became reddish (think, it's normal and it has nothing to do with the oil as it's just the irritation..poor skin) Today looked at myself in the mirror..it wasn't worth of it at all. Spots stayed as they were (maybe less visible BUT only because I’d burnt the skin all over the face) What else..it is flaky (salicylic acid made its job) and tired from all of my experiments. Looking for a beautician meanwhile…Professional help’s requ

Day 4

Well, I have a problem))) Was so pissed off with the pimples on my back and chin that decided to try smth THAT radical as salicylic acid… The skin looks awful on my face now. The back is more or less alright...itchy, though... The skin got burned…Of course, I’m stupid and it’s my fault but I just could not wait any longer for the spots to disappear themselves. But now I know…I will NEVER EVER again in my life do it. People, be really careful. Yes, you can use it just to stop inflammation if

Day 1

So, hello everybody! I know that all of us are here because we suffer some skin problems otherwise we won't be wasting out time on forums, blogs and sites to find out valuable information on how to cure your skin. I have a combination skin which is oily on my T-zone with visible pores (rather big ones). IT could sound not that awful if not the acne problem which is with me for (let me think...) 11 (!!!) years. Firstly, I thought those were growing-up years (almost everybody, we were not per
