  1. It depends. Some people say no, some people say yes. I have combination oily skin and personally I don't apply moisturizer in the day after I wash my face - just a sunscreen Trader Joes Face and Body Sunscreen SPF 30. At night I'll apply moisturizer and the next day my face is soft and fresh. I haven't gotten any new acne since doing that and my face is looking pretty good. So give that a try.
  2. Your face is less red and that is a positive! Make sure you are cleansing your face a moisturizing as well. Lemons help with blackheads so try rubbing some on your face after cleansing, leave it on for 2 minutes then rinse it off with cool water.
    -Lightweight -Soothing -No breakouts -Makes skin really soft -Parabens for some people, but I'm okay with it I really love this moisturizer and I'm glad that I picked it up out of whim! It is light weight and not greasy at all, which is great for my oily skin. I never experienced any burning or irritation with this product but everyone's skin is different. Give it a try if you want a nice light night moisturizer. I would also recommend using this in the day if you have a powdered
  3. I know the feeling. I have tons of hyperpigmentation, blothes, and discoloration and it can be very daunting to look at them. But at the end of the day, do your best wtih what you have. There are ways to cover your scars with a big of makeup (Gossmakeupartist on Youtube is the SHIZZZ) or use oatmeal to hopefully reduce redness. Actually I wrote a blog entry about not letting acne (and this applies to scars too) rule our lives. http://www.acne.org/...rule-our-lives/ You are a beautiful per
  4. Justice League is on my mind.I love Batman! :D

    1. Lately I have been getting whiteheads and acne on the bridge of my nose and I didn't think much of it until yesterday when I saw a HUGE whitehead right under my left eyebrow. It looked so weird compared to the rest of my face because there are no pimples around my eyes except this one lone soldier. I washed my face with my Clearasil Wash, moisturized then put my glasses on. Then I paused. Took my glasses off, then put it back on again. The pimple was right where part of my glasses framed my face
    2. When I scroll down and read the blogs here and even just looking at Youtube, its not hard to find people frustrated with their acne/acne-prone skin. At times it can lead to depression and it is a self-esteem destroyer. I am not immune to its effects - I suffer from acne and LOTS hyperpigmentation, and I can't help but compare myself to my relatives who do not have acne or hyperpigmentation. I become jealous and angry just because, to me, my skin looks hideous. But through out my time in colle
    3. Good luck with the shift in the diet! Just remember you do need something from the wheat group - try some quinoa after you are done with your 4 week diet! My friend from India made some with mixed veggies and curry and it was delicious! Now is this for improving your acne? Or just a change in lifestyle?
    4. This is a topic that I don't think anyone has touched on. Honestly I didn't even know this acne product changed in its formula, rather I thought it was just a change in the packaging. However when I recently purchased it, I noticed on the left corner of the tube the "NEW FORMULA" label and wondered how it would compare to the other one. I've been trying to look for reviews on the new Clearasil Ultra Acne + Marks Wash and Mask formula, but can't find it on Youtube and I can't tell if the reviewer
    5. Well I have tried oatmeal, which I personally love and it has helped my skin a lot! My acne has reduced and I mostly have to deal with my scars. I'll have to try out some products to see if any others work well with my skin. Thanks for following.
    6. As someoe with a darker skintone i am no stranger to hyperpigmentation. Something that has helped me with my hyperpigmentation is gentle exfoliation with oatmeal and lemons. Oatmeal is an excellent cleanser and it exfolates the skin by physically removing the dead skin cells to reveal brighter skin. Lemons have alpha hydroxy acids which help with exfoliation as well and act as a natural skin lightener. Here is what I do: in the morning I cleanse my face with plain 1 minute quick oats by tak
    7. I use SheaMoisture Organic African Black Soap Shea Butter Wash. It really cleans the face wothout over drying like traditional black soaps do. It is all natural with no harsh ingredients. It is about $10 for a 13 fl oz bottle and can be found in Duane Reades, Targets (some of them) and Walgreens. I love it cuz you can use so little to clean your far and you can use it as a body wash and the smell is great - for males or females. Give it a try.
    8. I'm glad other people are using black soap! It's not just for black people! (When I was suggesting it to a Caucasian friend of mine he seemed confused and ask if it was just for black people. Smh) It's pretty nifty and doesn't have that many ingredients. Though it can be a bit drying in the winter months so I make sure to put serum and moisturizer immediately after. Makes my face baby soft and has cleared most of my acne - not all but that's my fault cuz I yield to my sweet tooth temptation ofte
    9. @ComebacKid So I am trying out the HIMistry Alpha Arbutin serum and I am happy to tell you that it hasn't caused my to have a rash or breakout, which is a HUGE plus! I can't really judge its lightening ability just yet since I have only been using it for about a week. It does brighten up my face though and I am happy with that. So I'll give it like a month or two then come back and tell you how it is working for my dark spots. In the meantime, if you aren't doing it already, use lemon. Best
