  1. Does anyone have any advice or experience taking DIM (Diindolylmethane) and Spironolactone together? I have taken DIM in the past, and it was always helpful, but it's just not enough. I just started Spiro, and so far, I have seen no results. But I'm willing to wait it out. I have a feeling that I'll need a good cycle or two to work it out. I'm also taking Chaste Berry again, which I haven't taken in years. Thanks in advance for your replies!
  2. I've never used beautyskin, but I have absolutely no complaints with the Verilux. And if you don't like it, you have 12 weeks to send it back. It's also big, which is nice! So, you know, if you have acne on your chest or back, it's definitely going to get at it. I had a clogged pore on my chin and another under my lip for like two months... you couldn't really *see* it, but it was there. Of course, I never squeezed them, because I knew it would become a giant nodule/cyst and then I'd have
  3. This stuff broke me out so badly when I was in high school that I ended up at the doctors. That's way before I ever had acne of any sort. I have PTSD from it!
  4. I just wanted to say that I LOVING this lamp. It's like I have my own tiny sun right in my apartment! When you turn it on and look at the floor, you'd think that there was a shade open and sunlight is streaming through the window. I had two gross picked-at cysts on my face and they are healing *so fast*! The only problem is that I want to sit in front of it for way longer than I should. I have to force myself to stop after 15 minutes. I still have 11 weeks to send it back, but I can't ima
  5. Just had the flu and was stuck inside for two weeks and got two nasty ones. It just added insult to injury
  6. I've used my ClearWave three times now... the first two times I used goggles but the third time I just kept my eyes shut because my boyfriend was in the other room and I am vain and didn't want to look like a spaceman. The instructions said the goggles are for people with "sensitive eyes" and didn't say anything like "Warning! Goggles must be worn at all times!" so I imagine it's a personal choice.
  7. Looks like a decent multi-vitamin, if nothing else!
  8. It's an interesting point, but the only issue I have with it is that (I believe) it has helped me and other people. I just did a google search, trying to find some more information or studies on it, but I can't seem to find anything. If you have any information, I'd be interested to read it.
  9. My Verilux ClearWave arrived yesterday, and I was so excited that I used it immediately and then again this morning. Both times, I ended up with a LINE in my forehead, you know, a little red indentation -- like I'd been pushing something into my head! It went away, but WHA-HUH?? Other than that, I'm totally psyched to keep using this. I just hope I don't end up looking like I've been sleeping on gym socks.
  10. Not using the red and blue light together seems exceedingly important, especially since Verilux has both bulbs on at the same time. I can't imagine that's entirely true, or the product would be useless, no? Maybe it's just the specific treatment that the derm does...?
  11. I was crushed with the flu for the week and now I've got a painful stupid whitehead right on the top of my lip and another smack in the middle of my cheek. The funny part is, when I was home with the flu and could only order delivery, I was even ordering salmon and brown rice from the Thai place every day. I guess the flu will have its vengeance.
  12. I think the idea that the body takes care of itself is true, of course, but it's also like saying that we shouldn't have to use antibiotic ointment because cuts are meant to heal themselves. I mean, it's true, but it's not like you can't help your own body heal. That's my basic thought on that. Of course, you don't ever want to go overboard and cause other damage by trying to "help"
  13. Anybody use these? Love them? Hate them? Think they're probably dangerous?
