  1. Hello everyone! I have a question. If I wash my skin with a cleanser that contains moisturizer (Hyaluronic Acid with herbal extracts) prior to applying Retin A, will it interfere with the action of Retin A? Will it effectively penetrate my skin and work 100%? The two cleansers I'm looking at are Earth Science Clarifying Facial Wash and Cerave Foaming Facial Cleanser.
  2. It's actually $10 including shipping and handling, but yeah It's still a good deal considering how long it lasts. I would feel a lot safer ordering the 6oz since you have nothing bad to say about it and had no issues with shipping. I'm going to go with the 6oz just to be safe. Thank you. Just make sure to moisturize. And if you feel a slight tingle/sting when your apply it and the soap buds are working away, its completely normal. Moisturize after you cleanse at night though. Some people compla

  4. I'm curious, how long does the 6oz African Black Soap last? I'm thinking about purchasing the African Black Soap in the second link because you get a pound worth for just an extra few dollars, but I've read a couple bad reviews about the seller "HalaEveryDay".
  5. Thank you. I was leaning towards Purpose until you mentioned it has sodium laureth sulfate. I've been told using African Black Soap with my peels should be fine, but I'm a little hesitant. Where do you order your African Black Soap in raw/block/natural form?
  6. Is African Black Soap safe/gentle enough to use on my face during the Glycolic Acid peel/TCA Peel peeling process? I read good things about it. I'm debating on whether I should purchase African Black Soap or Purpose Gentle Cleansing Bar. Thank you!

    Should I Pop My Shoulder Acne?

    No, whatever you do do not pop them. There's always a risk that a pimple will leave a scar, but you increase the risk by popping the pimple. I'm sure you don't want scars, scars are much harder to get rid of. Just leave it alone and let it heal naturally.

    Shampoo & Conditioner

    Nizoral Anti-Dandruff Shampoo doesn't cause me breakouts. As for conditioner, I use a conditioner specifically for curly hair but you may want to try a conditioner made by Nizoral.

    Help!

    You're welcome! Oh, I see. It looks much much better now than it did 4 days ago so that's something to be happy and smile about. It looks like It's going to heal a lot faster than my prediction. It's noticeable but try not to let it bother you too much. Do you apply sunscreen every morning?

    Help!

    You're welcome. That may take longer to heal. It looks like a piece of skin is missing. I would probably apply some Mederma on it until the skin reattaches itself. I see you have a lot of old acne marks. I think your skin would really benefit from Glycolic Acid Peels or Mandelic Acid Peels. If you decide to give it a go, do not apply the peel until after your skin reattaches itself.

    Help!

    You can't predict how fast an acne mark will heal, because some heal faster than others. From my experience as a long term acne sufferer, I'd say it would take about 2 months tops if you let it heal naturally. However, if you apply medication on it I'd say it would take about 3-4 weeks to heal. I think you'll benefit from Glycolic Acid Peels or Dan's AHA cream.
  12. What helps gets my mind off life's issues is watching movies, listening to my old school music, and taking my Toy Poodles out for a walk. I play with my Xbox 360 occasionally. I'm really into Battlefield 3. Also, I like to play "Draw Something", It's very addictive.
  13. I can relate to most of those. I absolutely hate how acne just changes our personalities.
  14. 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. Yes, I know

    Face a lot darker than neck and rest of body?

    Holy!! I saw the before and after pics of a girl who had a TCA peel, with the exact kind of deep PIH I have and it completely cleared her up . I'm in awe...it's too good to be true...it must be. Yeah, TCA peels are awesome! Why haven't you tried it yet? I didn't think it'd be so effective tbh, I kind of lost hope for my PIH a while back. I'm going to speak to my GP about referring me to a derm soon though. I'll be doing this as soon as possible. Thank you I was just like you, I didn't think i
