  1. apple cider vinegar has been my savior! I actually just posted a video explaining how I got clear with it
  2. I like using avacado oil for heavy duty moisturizing; be sure to test on one part of your face for awhile though, it can cause breakouts for some.
  3. I really like aveeno positively radiant, I've been using it for about 3 weeks now and I've noticed a difference in my red marks and overall skin tone. However, it isn't THAT moisturizing, but I don't need anything heavy so it works great for me. I've added jojoba oil of my skin is a little flaky and it works great though.
  4. I LOVE Faerie Organic foundation and veil. I've been using it for almost two years now and it's never made me breakout. I wouldn't reccomend their other stuff though, the mascara and blush could use some improvements but hey! I love the eyeshadow though, the pigments are bright and it stays on all day. It's a little pricey, but I don't wear makeup often do it lasts a long time for me.
  5. I'm pregnant as well! Going on 7 months, and my face is finally clear. I have always had acne, but it go wayyyy worse during pregnancy. What I have found is that less is more for my face, and it likes to be left alone at night. Weird, huh? But it works! All I do is an oatmeal mask/cleanser in the morning, a homemade green tea toner, then moisturizer with aveen positively radiant mixed with jojoba oil. At night I splash my face with water after my 3 mile walk, but thats it. Maybe some lavender oi
  6. I know what you mean! I'm almost 6 months pregnant, and my skin is so dry and sensitive. I've never had this problem before :/ it takes forever for spots to heal, but I've found the lavender oil is one of the best things to help speed up the process.
  7. I prefer lavender oil... I put it on any spots during the day, and then rub it into problem areas at night. It relieves redness and helps spots heal much much faster.
  8. try plain oatmeal as a cleanser... it works great and is very gentle. Youtube instructional videos! as for moisturizer, coconut oil and aloe are two very good natural moisturizers. Of course, I don't like Benzoil Peroxide at all... I use a homemade green tea toner to substitute.
  9. Just wanted to chime in here about homemade cleansers; definitely the way to go! A couple of my favorites are plain oatmeal, and milk and honey cleanser. The way you use oatmeal is to take about a tablespoon of plain organic oats in your palm, then clench your fist and run your fist under warm water (letting the water seep through your fingers) until the oatmeal in your hand is thoroughly saturated. Then open your fist and squeeze the "milk" of the oatmeal out into your other hand and onto your
  10. maybe try another batch with less salt? 1/4 tsp may be too much for you
  11. I just wanted to give you all an update on how it is working for me! I love the results, I've been using it for about... 5 days now I think? Twice a day religiously after cleansing with oatmeal. I varied it a little bit by adding 1:3 ACV and three drops of lemon juice (may increase the lemon juice later to help lighten my scars). Every morning when I wake up, my skin is less red than it was the night before. It may be the green tea masking the redness, but hey I'm not complaining! I have very pa
  12. Glad to hear that your redness is decreasing! I'm new to testing for PH levels. I am getting mine at Indigo Instruments - 15.00 for 100. Is there a better or less expensive source? Also, would you recommend a meter over the strips? I haven't read any good reviews on those that are less than 100.00. Seems like a lot of people check their results against the strips anyway. I want to make sure I have reliable strips, so any advise would be appreciated. strips arent reliable at all. atlea
  13. I just have to chime in here about aloe: I LOVE it! I have a couple of aloe plants and a bottle of Lily of the Desert Aloe. I honestly like both, and if my poor little plants produced enough aloe for me to use everyday, I would. But Lily of the Desert is the next best thing. I agree, most of the aloe crap out there is mostly chemicals. Hah! Proactiv. I should have guessed. I saw proactive on TV when i was 16 and was so mesmerized. And then i used it for 5 years, and finally found out there
