  1. I wasn't in that situation but I know plenty who were or are. My husband lived with his parents until he was 22. Then he scraped together enough money to rent a studio apartment. Eventually he was able to get a bigger apartment, his own car, etc. but it took a lot of time and saving. My brother-in-law is 27 and still lives with his parents. It's because he has a pretty sweet deal though. He works for them, so he pays rent to them (it's measly) and he gets his own side of the house, his mom
  2. I apologize for my incredibly selfish behavior of not being able to get on :( Life is hard! I'm trying though.

      1. Hi, I'm not new to acne.org by any means. I had terrible acne that I cleared up with the Regimen, and I've stayed clear since. However, recently something has been on my mind. My mom has rosacea, she's had it since she was 27. And right now, I'm only 19, but I know without a doubt I'm going to have the same rosacea as her, and what scares me is that I have all the symptoms now. I've always had problems with dilated blood vessels on my cheeks but recently I'm turning red on a hair trigger.

          I had this freak flu-cold hybrid that drained me of all energy and left me like a zombie for a week, and I spent about a week coming down with it, and took about a week to fully recover.. Then went on vacation to visit my family down in California (twice now since I've replied last), then had a freak snowstorm that knocked out my power for a week.. And I'm learning how to use Photoshop so I can color my doodles (I draw Pokemon.. like all the time) so whenever I have a spare moment I...

          whaaa the rest of my comment disappeared! OK, comment con't: Whenever I have a spare moment I work on my first ever drawing/coloring but only for like 3 minutes at a time, 1-3 times a week, so it's taking FOREVER... I feel like my full time job is eating my life and any energy I would have had to do anything else..

      3. It's not moisturizing enough for the Regimen for most people, plus it tends to flake off throughout the day. If you are going to try it, do what the first reponse says and get your own plant.. They are INCREDIBLY easy to take care of, we have one just for looks because they do not die easy and look neat. However aloe is definitely excellent for sun burns, etc. and helping skin heal because it has similar genetic structure to human skin (weird I know)

        Best Non-Acne.org Jojoba Oil?

        They're about all the same as long as they're 100% pure jojoba oil. But I also get Desert Essence because it's the best priced one in my area.

        Jojoba Exfolation Method

        It's not like jojoba oil is the only product in his moisturizer, there's also the licochalcone.. or however you spell it. The licorice extract stuff. And reagents to keep the product stable for shelf-life. It may or may not be the jojoba oil. But if you still have jojoba oil lying around I would try the jojoba exfoliation method, it's a great substitute for the AHA+ for exfoliation. It doesn't do quite as well but it's about as close as you can get while still being on the Regimen.
      6. Yes, get dressed before applying BP and just be careful when applying it. I've never had BP bleach anything but hand towels (not even my sheets) because I'm very careful when applying BP. I've used BP in one concentration or another for over a year.
      7. Did you ever try adding AHA+? That's what's been really effective for me. Using Dan's moisturizer in the morning and AHA+ at night. No mo' flakes! It's weird that the jojoba oil caused you to feel like your BP wasn't drying all the way though because you have to wait for the BP to dry before you put on moisturizer with jojoba oil...

        Does 2.5% Bp Commonly Bleach Facial Hair?

        It has never bleached any of my facial hair, eyebrows or otherwise (yes, I have "otherwise" ). I've seen one or two people post about it slightly dying their eyebrows before but generally you're not spreading it on your eyebrows anyways so I wouldn't worry about it.

        Aha + Question

        It's in the nature of the product for it to burn so don't freak out. Dan has admitted that you can start it as early as 3 weeks but he recommends waiting until 5 weeks because you don't want to freak out your skin by doing too much at once. Start slowly with it if you decide to do it.

        Does mystic tan clog your pores?

        Benzoyl peroxide does make it fade faster. While the rest of the spray tan can last up to 10 days the BP washed the face tan off in like 5. It's awful and unfair, I wish it didn't.

        Swelling Acne. Need Advice!

        Sounds like it's infected. The best thing to do is to leave it alone. Don't touch it, don't put makeup on it. I know it sucks to not cover it up but that thing sounds infected and doing stuff will just irritate it more. This is exactly why you aren't supposed to pop pimples, they are much more likely to get infected.

        How To Really Cure Moderate Acne

        Not if you have hormonal acne. Just saying. Mine is completely hormonal and it's not fair but all the women in my family are crazy-hormoned. But I completely agree that most people make their minor acne a ton worse by trying really super hard to get rid of it with all these awful products that don't work at all. It's best to leave it be or find one thing and stick to it instead of putting a chemical cocktail on your face.
