  1. I love reading reviews on makeupalley (I guess I don't have a lot going on) and people just love Make Up Forever Full Cover Concealer, and it's available at Sephora. I plan on trying it, as soon as I get going to a Sephora.
  2. I had a similar problem for years and years. I was always flakey between my eyebrows, nasal folds and chin crease, no matter how much lotion I used or how much I exfoliated. But on top, it was always slick and my make up would melt off. It was so frustrating because my make up always looked awful. It turns out I had a mild case of seborrheic dermatitis! It cleared up with the use of a 2% zinc pyrithione cleanser. I'm not saying that's what you have, but it's a possibility. Maybe you can goog
  3. This company has a DIY Vit C serum that I've heard good things about: http://stores.skinessentialactives.com/-strse-81/SEA-C-Serum-DIY/Detail.bok I haven't used it myself though.
  4. Hi all! Good luck with the retin-A! I'm about 6 months into using tretinoin cream (0.025 for 4 and now 0.05) and it's true that it's not always easy. I had very mild acne, but it was persistent and no OTC products were working for me. I didn't have any sort of purge until about 2 months into it, in fact my skin cleared up perfectly initially. My purge manifested as a million closed comedones all over my forehead. It looked like a non-inflamed rash! Of course, they got inflammed and then w
  5. I know that my insurance only covers the generic tretinoin gel in 0.01 and 0.025, but it covers the cream in 0.025/0.05/0.1 strengths. I wonder if that's a similar thing with your insurance. I doubt you'll have much irritation and I hope that the lower version works for maintain your good results. I apologize that I don't have much to contribute other than that since it's been yearsssssssssss since I used RAM and I'm currently using the cream version of tretinoin. Good luck!
  6. Of course, do whatever you feel is best for you and your needs. But I found that my skin cleared much faster once I stopped wearing liquid foundation. That is so hard for me to even type because I am such a make-up junkie and NEVER would have left the house without at least foundation on. When I was having a hard day and wanted some coverage, I would put concealer on the spots and lightly powder on top. I imagine that the differin will still be effective though, even if you continue to us
  7. It's really not fair to anyone, to just throw around cliche's like that. Confidence cannot compensate for flawed attributes. Yahoo answers is notorious for giving out bad advice and the politically correct response is always "Confidence, personality blah blah" to convey a false nobility that they don't really have. It's all in fact a fallacy. If we're going to be honest here, in most cases, if you don't pass the screening process (surface aka "shallow" attraction) your odds are already severely

  10. I went to Puerto Rico for a family vacation last summer, it was a nice place, but expensive (by my frugal traveling standards). My skin has been slowly clearing up and I have been enjoying going to work and out and about without make up on, and not thinking about it at all. I woke up late this morning to work and ran out the door without a spot of make up, I wouldn't have done that ever 6 months ago. Also, when my skin is nice I wear bright pink lipstick. It makes me feel vivacious.
  11. You should get to a dermatologist to make sure that's not something non-acne related, such as a cancerous lesion.
  12. I threw away my hand mirror at work because I started obsessively looking at my skin. I was checking my face at least 20x a day, for no reason at all. I would just be working and then have an intrusive thought that I had to check my skin. I have loads of other compulsions, but this one was the most destructive because I would pick, at nothing. I'm sure some of my coworkers think I'm incredibly vain, but I'm not actually (well, yeah, some), but I wasn't admiring or looking at myself as a whole.
  13. Ouchie! All that stuff is good, but I would also suggest a barrier such as aquaphor/polysporin/vaseline on top of your moisturizer. I know that sounds awful to put on acne-prone skin, but, it will really protect the skin and let it heal. Good luck!
