  1. We shall see how it goes. I am using it right now and it seems to be dripping all over. fingers crossed!
  2. What are you tried and true methods for helping red skin, whether it is a rosacea flare-up or just leftover scars? Which moisturizer do you find to be most helpful and any specific ways you wash your face? I work with Eucerin and wanted to give some background information about eczema. The medical term is Atopic Dermatitis and affect approximately 15% of infants and children and 3% of adults in the US and results in skin losing its moisture. There are ways to help when your eczema gets bad.
  3. I love the VIVA la Juicy and Vera Wang Princess. I love perfumes with a great powder finish that aren't overwhelming!
  4. I would be careful about Neosporin since it can easily clog your pores. You want something that will absorb better so you can wear it during the day, rather than just sit on your skin. I have combination skin so during the winter months I get some pretty dry patches on my cheeks and around my nose. I actually do some work with Eucerin and like to use a little dab of Eucerin's Calming Creme. It is non-comedogenic so you don't have to worry about clogging, plus it is made with oatmeal and soot
  5. While on vacation I came across a RedBook with a lovely recipe of home made ailment recipes-- for scars they said to use plantain leaves. When I was looking up different ideas and reviews about using this for acne, I came across overwhelming research towards African Black Soap which led me to Raw, Unrefined Organic Shea Butter from African (said to be the best and more pure and free trade). I was unsure which is better East or West so I bought both. Does anyone know if mixing the 2 in my ha
  6. if anyone is still interested in this topic: I have bad acne. It all started two Octobers ago when I traded my nuva ring in for the copper IUD. I went to the derm a month after I took the hormonal BC out so she said it was just my body coming down from the hormones. It has been over a year later and my face won't stop. I have really bad inflammation that I am sure will eventually lead to scaring. My face has never been this bad and I can almost guarantee it is from the copper. They say th
  7. Those pictures look like my current face (minus white heads, just all red and bumpy and downright no fair). I am thinking about doing a second round of accutane when I get insurance so I can pay for it. Hopefully everything works out for you! Get Aquaphor moisturizer and start using it for your lips now. They will peel like crazy.
  8. I was using hibiclens for over a month but saw no change. I switched to Desert Essence but I don't think that is helping (more break outs). I may have ordered a defunct bottle because whenever I pump I get all foam, no liquid. Could this be the problem? I ordered from drugstore.com
  9. I have been on B5 for over a month. There has been a huge decrease in oil production, i have broken out a couple of times but they have been small. I would say it has made a difference, but not huge or anything. I will continue to take it for the 3 months and see how it goes. I think after I will check my liver, take a break from megadosing and stick to fish oil/multi-vitamin and see how niacin works (if the b5 stops working, if results continue to increase I will stay on a small dose). i d
  10. wash your face only twice. before practice and bed. in the morning just wash with warm water and moisturize. this way you aren't over drying your skin. as long as you clean off the oil/dirt/sweat/gunk before you go to sleep there should be no reason why you need to wash it again in the morning. 3 times a day is a bit excessive especially if you are doing accutane,which is super drying. people do say that there is an initial breakout with jojoba so it may be the cause but both oils you are
  11. I just finished my first month of Pantothenic Acid mega dosing. For girls: did it ever cause you to be late? I have the copper iud and have been relatively regular (give or take a couple of days). I am over a week late and I think it is because of the B5 but I can't find anything to corroborate. Please respond asap!
  12. I haven't started the niacin yet. I am just finishing my first month with PA and I do have new ones coming in, but I heard that this is the time where breakouts happen. Either way my face is still gross. Not as many new spots, but still the same huge bastards from before refuse to leave. There is definitely a reduction in oil. A couple more months and we will see what happens. I think I am going to hold off on adding Niacin until I get to a lower does of PA. Does anyone know if PA can me
  13. Would CVS brand no flush niacin be ok to take?
  14. So far the best deal I have found Pantothenic Acid: http://www.swansonvitamins.com/Search?doSe...mp;doSearch.y=0 500mg, 250 caps $8.99 each. With a $5.40 off coupon 6 bottles (1500 pills, 20 pills a day= 75 days) cost $53.53 Ordered it Sunday and will be receiving it in about 3 days.
