OMG!!!!! U GUYS MUST TRY THIS!!

Recommended Posts

sorry if I missed this but do I have to be clear of acne to start this or can I do it in conjunction with the DK treatment (or any treatment)? Also, I have very sensitive skin which is almost always dry while on the dk regimen, will adding this treatment make the dryness worse?

If you have not already tried this, PLEASE DO. I started this 3 days ago (actually just the baking soda scrub and egg mask) and my skin has seen a HUGE improvement. Marks have faded 40% and my face is actually 1 COLOR. Wow. The egg mask also feels fantastic.

I know this is an old topic but still i wanna try this. So you have to apply that Baking Soda paste and then Apple Cider Vinegar solution or just mix the ACV solution with the Baking soda?

ive read up to page 20 and tried this last night

now im not sure if im doing it correct.

wen i mix the baking soda with the water its not really a paste its jus white water

should i jus wash my face with it like that? cos it feels like im washing wit tap water..

also with the egg n the lemon squeeze, i beat it n it dosent come out thick, again its jus

like slimey water i jus pour it on face is that ok it does eventually dry tho

and as for the white viniger i jus pour it into my hands out the bottle n wash my face wit it

leave it till it dries then rinse it of after 10 min this leaves my face a lil red tho.

does the apply cider 1 make ur face red? i just wasnt sure if im applying correct.

I have read this with great interest as my red marks are really getting me down. I have been on accutane for 6 weeks now and have no new spots but the red marks on my cheeks are quite severe.

Can I do this regimen on accutane?

Also has anyone heard of scar repairex?

[Removed]

its supposed to help but my derm said it probably wouldn't.. Has anyone tried this?

thank you

I tried the acv mixed with water and it just made my face feel dirty all day, and I had 2 new pimples the next day. The egg white & lemon juice mask made my forehead breakout. I dunno why this is working for so many people. Could I have been allergic to these items?

I have a question about the lemon/eggwhite protein mask. Is it normal for your skin to feel really tight and dry a few minutes after putting it on or am I doing something wrong? Please reply I want to make sure I have this right.

One other thing I didn't have any lemons, but I had a lime so I put that in. Do you think it makes a difference? I assume that the reason for the lemons in the first place is because of the citric acid, and if thats the case limes have way more citric acid and should work just as well?

Colmeng: After you have applied the protein mask, it will dry. Just wait 10 minutes and wash it off. I also feel dry when I have it applied. When i wash it off I feel nice:) I think lemons and limes go for the same.

Thanks. Yesterday I used it for the first time and when I woke up this morning I had like 3-4 new whiteheads??? I'm on accutane and I haven't had a whitehead for like 3 weeks. Do you think its because of the mask? can a whitehead develope overnight?. My skin is mostly clear of pimples all I need is to clear the red marks and I thought this would help.

If you guys think I'm allergic to something in the facemask, what should I do? Should I use other fruits with citric acid? or use some other type of protein base? Please comment reply. Thanks.

I was thinking about going back to this sort of thing again instead of using all the chemical products as they aint giving me results. Anyway, has anyone had good results from doing this sort of thing and cleared there acne?

my aesthetician is just AWESOME!!! I had gone in for my second Silk Peel and we were talking abt various skin care mistakes for acne-prone skin... she told me that all u need for those red marks to go away is follow these simple rules.

morning...

1) cleanse with a mild cleanser for sensitive skin.

she says the concept of oily skin and using oily skin products for acne is wrong! oily skin products are best tolerated by ppl who have oily skin but free from breakouts. anyone who is doing ANY treatment for acne will have sensitive skin. so hypoallergenic and sensitive skin products are the best bet for them! this is because oily skin products strips of all the oils on skin..so the skin counter-reacts by producing more oil and hence more acne. those with breakout free oily skin...mm...the lucky few..r the only ones to tolerate this..P.Acne bacterium..why do u hate some ppl and leave the others alone??? WHY??? :boohoo:

2) exfoliate

avoid all scrubs..no matter how mild they claim to be. but how do we exfoliate, do u ask??? oh thats easy...and DIRT CHEAP too!!! 2 WORDS- BAKING SODA!

she says that she has not come across any acne-prone patients who has benefitted from scrubs. it may work for a while in some...lead to initial happiness..yeah, and then lead to final gloom when breakouts appear from everywhere...even the areas where it was break-out free in the beginning! SO NO SCRUBS PPL :naughty: .use baking soda instead... just make a paste out of baking soda and water...and massage very gently. wash immediately. u have to do this after cleansing. u may be able to extract some ripe or loose blackheads afterward. hey and never try to squeeze a blackhead if its not ready to come out...u will regret it!

3) tone to balance pH

now that baking soda is basic in nature..something acidic is needed to balance the ph. ANSWER? APPLE CIDER VINEGAR!

use a 1:8 (vinegar:water) solution first and then gradually increase to 1:1 ..never apply it neat. BALANCED pH = BEAUTIFUL SKIN! wash off after 10 mins. dont leave it on.

4) apply ur acne cream..i use the Proactiv BP lotion. i use the amt Dan suggests for beginners...( edit: i switched to Neutrogena on-the-spot now). U can use ANY acne cream which suits ur skin. Dont skip this step.

4) Moisturise with SPF containing moisturiser. I use Cetaphil and it does not break me out. Look for the words sensitive skin, hypoallergenic & non-comedogenic WITH SUN PROTECTION FACTOR when u buy any moisturiser.

5) And for those who apply make-up, use non-acnegenic products containing titanium dioxide or zinc oxide. they r good for the skin too!

evening..

6) cleanse ur face ..( use baking soda and acv only once a day..morning or evening as ur preference)

7) apply a mild protein mask....till date..ive never found a mask that gives as good results as this mask..this is my aesthetician's favourite mask (btw..she has absolutely gorgeous baby-smooth skin and she told me that she had acne in her teens! hard to believe..!)

1 tablespoon of egg-white whipped up + a squeeze of lemon (dont put too much). smooth it over ur face..avoid eye area... wash off in 10 minutes....and look at a NEW REJUVENATED YOU!! :dance:

i tried this mask every day for 5 days....its AMAZING...my skin looks so refreshed! And bonus point is that done everyday...this will make the red-spots VANISH!!!

8) Apply ur acne cream before bed.

THATS IT!! JUST 8 STEPS FOR A HUGE BOOST IN YOUR CONFIDENCE!!

I am not kidding...there is a HUGE difference in my red-spots after just 5 days of this routine. I am going to stick to this routine. U guys ABSOLUTELY MUST TRY THIS.....

i will be glad to answer any questions regarding this....

TAKE CARE ALL OF YOU!!

Can anyone compare this regime to using Aqua Glycolic cleanser? If this is better I could try it for 3 weeks while I'm home.
