07/10/08 - I bought some Clinique products today. That lady was super nice, she found my right color in the clarifying makeup (it has salicylic acid, so it fights blemishes as well as covers them), oil free loose powder and the skin toner. So basically now, my makeup itself is my acne fighting solution now! Now I wont worry about wearing makeup too long and clogging my pores.
Also I am currently doing this experiment of not drinking any milk. So far so good. Haven't got any new spots. I am taking calcium supplements, in caramel flavor( yummy.. , so I am not missing milk too much for now). I bought soy milk but not a huge fan of it. Some people say they break out from soy milk as it has lot of phytoestrogens. I have never consistently had soy milk but hopefully its not the case for me. What I have noticed is that meat usually breaks me out, that too in big pimples. But I think milk and eggs is ok for me as long as I dont have too much of it. But I do tend to break out in small pimples from time to time, so I want to see if eliminating milk can completely eliminate those!
Also I bought olive oil as it's supposed to be anti-inflammatory and better than vegetable oil. I cooked some stuff in it yesterday and didnt notice too much of a taste difference. So I think I can stick with that.
My doc has given me Retin-A but kinda scared to try it due to the IB. My face has no active pimples right now, just some red marks. So I dont want to start something new now and get a face full of pimples. I am just going to do the milk expt. for now and see.
Will continue later...
