  1. Hi, I just wanted to tell you that I love the quote in your sig. I needed the inspiration today, thanks!

  2. Hey greentiger, thanks for the tip about Paula's Choice products. How did you find out about her product line? I'm a bit scared to use something I've never seen an advertisement for, that's all.

  3. Hello, Has anyone tried the complete Clear Anti-Acne System by Paula's Choice (Normalizing cleanser + Extra Strength Targeted Acne Relief Toner 2% BHA + Extra Strength Acne Fighting Treatment 5% BP)? I know everybody raves about Paula's BHA but does anyone use the complete system? If so, can you leave the BHA on for 10 minutes and then the BP on for another 10 or is this too much? Or how else do you use this? I have bought the BHA but how effective is Paula's BP? Thanks, Serena
  4. Thanks for the info. There does seem to be many good reviews on PC's products here. I just ordered the PC product you mentioned. Hopefully it works better than the cheap stuff that I've been using.
  5. Hello everyone, I have cystic acne and deep blackheads on my cheeks and chin. I want to buy a product that contains salicylic acid but should I buy a liquid cleanser, a scrub or a cloth? Examples of each: Liquid cleanser: Aveeno Clear Complexion Cream Cleanser (I like this because I can leave it on my skin for 5+ minutes to let it soak in but it's not really a "rough" exfoliator) Scrub: St. Ives Apricot Scrub w/ 2% SA (Is this a good exfoliant? Can you leave it on your skin for 5+ minutes t
  6. PLEASE GO!!! I was broken out when I got my B. Sc. and I will still have acne when I finish my M. Sc. so I can relate. The truth is, fear or nervousness about an event or change is how you know that it will be really really good for you. A quote I live by: "We can either watch life from the sidelines, or actively participate... Either we let self-doubt and feelings of inadequacy prevent us from realizing our potential, or embrace the fact that when we turn our attention away from ourselves, our
  7. Sorry about that, Wynne. Thanks for the reply, Ashley. I know that a concentrated paste does burn a lot and is very drying so maybe I will try a more dilute mixture for a face mask. I will test this on a small patch first though, thanks for the tip.
  8. Hi, I wanted to use BP at night (For my cystic acne - ex: As in Proactiv cleanser) and SA in the mornings (Helps my blackhead problem). Is it safe to use BP and SA? Thanks!
  9. Hi everyone, I wanted to try a nutmeg mask for my cystic acne. 1 tbsp of ground nutmeg mixed with 1/2 tsp of milk. OR 1/2 tsp of ground nutmeg mixed with 1/2 tsp of honey. Has anyone else tried this? If so, what was your recipe and did it work for you? Thanks!
  10. I wanted to try nutmeg on my skin (I have cystic acne and blackheads). Has anyone else tried this? If so, have you been successful? And what was your face mask recipe? Thanks.
  11. Thanks for the reply, I will try hot compresses. I agree with you about feeling helpless, I think that's the worst part.
  12. Hey guys, Whenever I use salicylic acid on my forehead I end up with these cysts that are like rock hard. This only happens on my forehead though. Does anyone else get this? If so, how do you treat them? Thanks!
  13. This is my story for the night too. Going out to a club with friends means having to be flirty and in a good mood and I just don't feel like that tonight. If only acne parties were real.
  14. Hi, I have a cyst near my jaw line (below my bottom lip). It came to a head a few weeks ago so I popped it and got everything but it came back a few days later so I popped it again and more came out. I have another cyst right below it that is just sitting under the skin. Has anyone had a case where a nearby cyst was "feeding" another cyst? I'm worried that the top cyst is just going to keep coming back as long as the below cyst is there. Thanks.
