  1. Thank you so much for ur advice! Very helpful!
  2. Hi, I would like to get ur opinion on what treatment will be best for my big pores mixed with indented scars? I bought a 5 treatments of laser Genesis and I have done 3 treatment.. Maybe I am not being realistic about the improvement it's going to get me but I don't really see any difference about the size of my pores and scars… even though I do see overall skin tone improvement… I asked my esthetician about micro needling but she kind of implied laser Genesis is better...
  3. Before I was using pure mineral oil to remove my waterproof sunscreens and makeup. Then I wanted to make a rinseable oil cleanser in hope to skipping cleanser and therefore reducing drying my skin. I followed recipe by mixing 90 percent of mineral oil with 10 percent of Cromollient SCE. Used this mix for paste 3 days. My skin started to break out with little tiny pustules on my nose, folds of my nose and in my eyebrows... And it's making my vision super blurry and eyes supper irritated that coul

    Fungal acne

    Its been a very long while since I updated here. Because my acne issue is pretty much 100% under control until a few weeks ago. I wanted to find a oil or balm cleanser that can remove waterproof makeup or sunscreen effectively and can be rinsed off with water. So I tried Clinique take the day off balm. Big mistake! I broke out badly especially on my chin... And then I stumbled upon a very helpful and informational website called simple skincare science and learned there is a type of acne that is

    Should I continue using safflower oil?

    Very old post already... my skin is pretty clear as of now. Big pores still from gene and skin picking.. but no big inflamed unbearable acne. Just want to update something here. I stopped using any oil on my face. It felt good for a while and it started breaking me out badly.. either the oil went rancid easily or wiping off oil was irritating my skin. I found a YouTube dermatologist Dr dray is very informational and helpful except her diet style.. anyways. Now my routine is all about b
  6. Current skin status 99.9 %clear. Some blackhead on nose. Pregnant with baby daughter and is due in next two weeks. as tile suggested, I stopped using safflower oil for some time. Because if the oil is slightly ever being off, it breaks me out.. and I don't want to keep my skincare in refrigerator... But I discovered a new HG facial cleaning product- Garnier micellar cleaning water- for sensitive skin (the pink one). In have gone through at least 4 or 5 bottles of it. Doesn't remove wate
  7. I have been searching sunscreen for at least 20 years and finally, thanks to ever improving technology, I found it!!! It is Heliocare 360 SPF 50 gel dry touch! Pros: Does not sting my eyes Does not break me out Keep me matte ALL DAY (therefore my makeup lasts all day) Does not have white cast. Does not gunk up on eyebrows nor hairline. Cons: Somewhat sticky, not truly dry touch (but doesn't affect makeup application) Dry down time is kinda long Hard to get in USA
  8. My skin currently is still pretty stable. I haven't been obsessed too much with my skin, meaning I don't have whole lot of bad acne going on that depressed me. Just want to make a note that I am searching for good sunscreen. Now I am testing out Heliocare XF gel cream spf 50. It's the most transparent sunscreen I have ever used. There is no white cast at all that would make my eyebrows look white. And this one doesn't sting my eyes. Even though it's very sticky after application but it's light

    Wrong product again...

    This time I found out Dermalogica intensive moisture balance is breaking me out. I used it with safflower oil as I thought I would like to add some humectants and some other anti aging ingredients from Dermalogica moisturizer to the oil. I was wrong... acne start to flare up again... Thankfully, it's not as bad.. I will only use my faithful safflower oil from now on.. I got Rhassoul Clay from mountain rose. Tried it as mask once. I liked it so for.

    Scared to moisturise... Opinions?

    I break out from a lot of moisturizers and oils.. I finally found one that saved my skin. Safflower oil. My face gets dry from all kinds of cleansers as well. Now I only use Safflower oil to clean my face. I massage it all over my face and use a microfiber cloth with lukewarm water to gently wipe off. If I feel dry, I will use 2 drops of oil.

    Should I continue using safflower oil?

    I will answer my own question. YES! And I will continue to use it! Safflower oil rocks!!! It saved my skin big time!

    Continuing improvement

    Some before after pictures. I am happy now. Under skin bumps/cysts have got flatten out dramatically. I have been using BHA pads like 5 times, not consecutive days since it will dry my skin out too much.. Now my face is kind of crust up with a dead skin on the surface from it. Not a bad thing tho. I know after the dead skin peeled off, new skin will surface and will be smooth. My routine is still the same and I will stick to it. I have found my HG products. Tretinoin, Saf

    Improvement :)

    I finally saw major improvement on my chin.. it got a lot smoother. There are still cysts but either those are very small or have been deactivated. I got acne.org AHA and tried using that last Friday night (I did not use tretinoin that night). I did not like the texture as its too sticky.. I will use it as spot treatment then. I also tried the cleanser. I added the cleanser to my safflower oil and messaged on my face. Not only it became so thick and cannot spread, but also it stung my face..

    Initial breakout?!

    Yesterday I posted a suggestion request on holistic and diet board but no one seem to have experience with safflower oil. By looking at my picture log, I think this is a IB because under skin hard bumps have been reduced even though some got inflamed to cysts.. Well I am prone to cysts on my chin so those are expected. My other acne prone areas like my eyebrows and in between eyebrow seem to stop breaking out. There were hard under skin clogs and now I cannot really feel those anymore with m

    safflower oil- 3rd week benchmark

    3/8 will be my third week of using safflower oil. My chin is still a mess up. Under skin clogs just inflamed to cysts.. There are giant harden clogs formed and fall out every now and then, even though I don't know if this is a good sign or not.. I don't notice a increase in acne though. My acne still are very localized (my chin and my forehead, my eyebrows and between my eyes) My between eyes area and my eyebrows seem to stop popping acne as I don't really feel under skin clogs with my finger
