  1. If this question has already been asked, I do apologize - 99 pages is just too much to go through. And thanks for everyone's replies on the thread, they have been such a help! I'm about to order some samples and need some help. I'm having trouble choosing my color, but I'll figure that out somehow, right? What I'm confused on is which type I should choose: original glo, matte, semi-matte, or intensive. I've been trying to read on here and on MUA but there is just so much and I haven't found the
  2. What are the ingredients of the gel? I would probably say just stick to one. I think your skin would get irritated by switching back from one to the other constantly. If the gel is working pretty well for you, then why not just stick with it, ya know?
  3. That's so great!!! I'm really glad you are having such awesome improvement.
  4. From the album: My Progress on DK's Regimen & Products

    I'm not perfect so I haven't followed everything to a tee. I have used the regimen every morning and night. It's just that maybe I used more/less moisturizer, more bp than what I stated I would start with, etc.. Just little things that aren't horrible harmful to the plan. I have only been using the bp at night and I add 6gtt of Jojoba oil to my moisturizer at night. So far everything is good. To get more detail check out my blog
  5. Well you never know, maybe its an ok side effect, you'll find out tomorrow thought. I hope it all works out!
  6. Interesting thing to ponder... I would have to say the former. The type of food we put into our system is the culprit for so much more than just acne (a great read to learn even more about this is the China Study). But in all truth, how does fasting from food for a moment help with acne when one will just go back to eating it after the fast? *Unless by fasting you meant more along the lines of abstaining. Either way it is all an interesting contemplation.
  7. Yes it's true. Isn't this why you are going to a physician? In order to get a prescribed cream/pill, something you cannot get from a drug store. Everyone's body is different, so unfortunately there is not just one pill/cream that will rid you of acne - this site wouldn't exist if there was. So the physician has to go through a trial and error period in order to determine what will work for your body. It is frustrating, but again everyone is different. Money wise: It sounds like in the end, bo
  8. Hmm... the rash is brown, that sounds different. I know that it can break you out in a red rash on your body, which is a severe side effect and should be stopped if it does so. I don't know your skin color, but if you are olive or darker skinned the red color of a rash could be masked. In order to be safe, I would stop taking the medication for today since you will be talking to your physician tomorrow. Missing one dose will be okay. The rash should eventually go away either when your body gets
  9. I love this, great idea and thanks for bumping this thread!

  10. I've made a hobby out of donating my hair to Lock's of Love - I'm very fortunate to be blessed with fast growing hair so why not give to a good cause right? Anyways, I always try to keep my hair in tip-top shape for this. My tips are, which may not work for some, but the key is less is more: don't dye hair, very minimal use of products, decreased heat - if you blow dry your hair then don't straightened it to, or vice versa, and limit your heat usage to as much as you can -air drying is always
  11. If you are taking oral antibiotics I would not recommend increasing the dose. You were prescribed a specific dose for a reason, and if you increase your dosage you are also increasing your risk of side effects. For instance with higher dosages of erythromycin you are more apt to have nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. The other thing, if you are seeing results with your current regimen, why risk ruining a bad thing? Rushing things is not going to get you better results. I don't see any harm in inc
  12. Love your initiative, I think that is great. I agree with electricfeel though, I need some tanning before I could try that. I do only wear it twice a week, as of now, though.
  13. Check out this link to figure out what type you may be suffering from. Inflamed acne: papules, pustules, nodules & cysts Non-inflamed acne: soft closed comedones, hard closed comedones & open comedones You could also post us a picture of your acne and maybe someone could let you know what it looks like. Hope this helps!
  14. I have not used tetracycline. A side effect of using tetracycline is a brown or yellow discoloration of the teeth. However, this is only on developing teeth. As your permanent teeth develop, the calcium of the tooth is exposed and this is what the tetracycline binds to leading to a discoloration. It binds to this because the enamel of the tooth has not fully developed. This process occurs until one is about 8 years old. I'm sure you are older than this, so your teeth should be well covered with
  15. I'm a nursing student > the stress of this alone is having horrible effects on my face. I'm going into my fourth year, so once I'm out I am hoping that my stress levels will go down and I will look more presentable to my patients.
  16. Yes, once Additional questions: How old are you now (almost 22), and how old were you when you first fell in love? 15 (4 year relationship > high school sweetheart) Was the love mutual, or one-sided? Mutual Have you been in love several times, if so, how many? No, just once Do you find it easy to fall in love? At the present, no Did you ever think you were in love, but it was really infatuation or obsession with the fantasy/idea of that person? No How did you know you were in love? Simple, t
  17. I would believe so. Not that bacteria are not capable of jumping, but I think it is more of the action of the phone laying flat against your cheek and rubbing. I do think that the constant rubbing of a cellphone against your cheek can cause bacteria to get onto the skin causing acne > which then leads to irritation of the acne by holding the phone against the area. I don't know if this would necessarily be the underlying cause, but I think it just adds to the acne battle. I know I have a to

    I would give the cream twenty minutes to absorb before applying moisturizer. I have not used that product - so it also depends how thick it is. Or once you think it is dry, just add an additional five to ten minutes.
  19. It's been 9 years so far - the last year is when it turned from black/white heads to nodules & even worse scarring. I'm soon to be 22 - so it started at 13.
