    moisturizer that keeps my face shine free ALL day

    i know it seems expensive, but it seriously lasts FOREVER and is worth it. what kind of skin do you have though? because mine is a combination of dry AND oily (lucky me, right?) and when i don't use a moisturizer it actually makes my skin wwaayyy worse, because if your skin thinks that its too dry, it'll try to overcompensate and even things out by releasing oil, which usually just makes things messier than they were to begin with. just try to avoid using harsh cleaners or rubbing alcohol or any

    moisturizer that keeps my face shine free ALL day

    mindwitch- i'm not sure if its oil free or not, but i'd assume so. idk how much i get it at sephora for usually, but its 40$ when you order it from the link at the end of this post. wowacne- yes that's the one i'm talking about freeride6227-i get it from sephora, i'm not sure what other store would carry it. i just checked and its not on the sephora website, but is on the murad one. here's the link. http://www.murad.com/moisturizers/oil-cont...fier-spf-15.jsp hope this helps, sorry for the del

    oh yeah i used to have the whole regimen kit thing and it didn't really work, but i've been using just the moisturizer for months now and i've been pretty pleased with it. thanks for the advice and i'm glad you found something that works for you too.

    Niacin topical and oral

    i'm not really sure if this helps, but recently i got some capsules that say 'vitamin B-complex with C' i guess they're used as a dietary supplement by most people. i was taking two on random mornings (i'm never good at remembering to take vitamins every day) i didn't really see much of a difference, but last night i thought i'd try breaking the capsule open and mixing the powder with a little water and applying it directly to my face. i had recently picked my face really really bad and it left
  7. my skin has always been oily, like so extreme that on the few days i didn't wear make up i'd be able to wipe the back of my hand on my cheek and see the oil on it. my mom always told me to use moisturizers, but this either made it worse, or only worked for an hour or two. i used to think that i'd have to wear make up everyday, just because it was the only thing that seemed to soak up the oil (i know that everyone says make up just makes you break out worse, but it was seriously the opposite for
  8. i have to apply make up atleast halfway down my neck every time i do my make up because i break out and have scars that far down. i think it also makes it look a little more natural, because the color doesn't stop suddenly at your jawline, it blends.
  9. i've been using NARS from sephora for awhile, its one of the few foundations i've found that really covers my scars without needing to be caked on, and try applying your foundation with a foundation brush instead of fingers or sponges. brushes make it go on a lot smoother and can be washed often so you won't spread bacteria around every time. oh and if you have really oily skin that makes your face shiny, even when you're wearing make up, the oil control moisturizer from murad is AMAZING. its th

    12.23.10 the beginning.

    okay so i recently picked at my face, more severely than i ever have in almost the decade i've been doing it. its limited to a few places, mostly upper cheekbone area by ear&hairline on both sides, but its so deep.. seriously like massive holes in my skin. this was the last straw, i've never looked at my face in the mirror and wanted to cry so hard as i did the next day. i've made attempts to quit in the past, but they never lasted long. i thought that if i have a place to write everything
  11. i know exactly how you feel, but try not to get so down on yourself, it usually just causes more stress and anxiety which makes things worse. take down or cover the mirrors you usually use when you pick, or if you can't try to put up post its around it that remind you the pride you will have for controlling yourself will outweigh the satisfaction picking will give. just take it one day at a time, everyone has relapses sometimes. you just have to think 'i will regret this later' or 'think of how
  12. i think the difference between someone who picks at their skin constantly and someone who is addicted to picking is that the addict will go looking for any imperfection they can find, anywhere. even if their skin is perfect, they will pick because it makes them feel slightly euphoric(a rush, a relief, etc.) i've found myself picking because i'm stressed about something, and when im sitting there infront of a mirror, all i can concentrate on is finding something new. it distracts me from all my p
  13. i've dealt with picking at my skin since i was around 11 or 12 years old. i'm 16 now, 17 in a few months, and i've completely destroyed the skin on my face, neck, chest, shoulders, and even arms. i never really realized how serious of a problem it was until a couple months ago when i found out there was actually a name for it. its a huge relief knowing that people out there are experiencing the same thing. i won't leave the house without lots of make up to hide the scars on my face and neck, an
