  1. Might be interesting for some http://www.myzeno.com/
  2. you might be two different skin tones if you used topical RX acne products and didn't use sunscreen while they were on your skin. It's called melasma. Hydroquinione is really the only thing that works for african american skin, you can get it through a doctor or some OTC products have it-along with other products that help it do its job.
  3. Since June I've been just wasing my face with warm water and using a toner and neosporin about twice a week and my face hasn't been this clear in about 2 years. My pores aren't clogged at all and I didn't get any intial break out or anything like that. It was just a progressive clearing of the pimples that were there and now I only get 1 or two during that time of the month. I am still oily and shiny but my acne, texture, dark spots and over all appearance of my skin has improved dramatically. I
  4. Cocoa Butter or shea butter 100% natural and definately moisturizing. Palmers makes great cocoa butter that smells great in lotion or in a tub. You can get it anywhere, CVS, Meijer, etc.

  6. I went into sephora and this very helpful sales girl who often helsp me with questions was explaining to me that if you use any kinda of scrub on acne it will aggravate it and spread the bacteria that causes acne. When you use a scrub on acne prone skin she suggested that it have some sort of bacteria killer (BP, SA, AHA, BHA) in it so that while the bacteria is spreading it will also be getting killed by the bacteria fighting agents in the scrub. I personally used the apricot scrub for sensiti
  7. I heard about this about 2 years ago, it's supposed to be a huge Japanese skin care "secret" using cleansing oil. They say that oil suppresses sebum oil from over producing on oily skin and encourages it to produce on dry skin, basically making it suitable for all skin types. I found this forum with more information: http://forums.longhaircommunity.com/showth...12&page=1&pp=15 has anyone tried this? I think I will try it about 3 times a week to start off with just to see how my skin
  8. Bobbi brown, NARS, prescriptives, shiseido, sacha, and stila all have yellow undertones to some of their line. I like prescriptives and they also have the color match where you can get a color custom made if you need it (about $60 for a good size bottle of liquid). NARS did not have a color for me, I'm african american but the asian sales girl at sephora uses NARS liquid foundation. If there is a sephora near you just go in there and browse, get some they also accept returns on anything you don
  9. so you like that cleanser? I've been thinking about trying their pore refining products but haven't heard (or read) and reviews. Are your pores visibly smaller? How long have you been using it?
  10. say you just left an important interview/appointment where you couldn't have a bunch of spots on your face. Or say its that clearasil salyclic acid stick that has concealer in it too. Or like human biology said tell them to STFU.
  11. I use cetaphil only at night or to wash off make-up. I think its a great cleanser for dry skin but it can cause those tiny skin colored bumps if used too often on oily skin. My boyfriend loves it but his skin is so dry he coats it in a vaseline type substance that he gets from the pharmacy.
  12. ACV helped with oil control and over all feel of my skin but it stopped working and definately didn't help my dark spots.
  13. check the "over the counter" threads, people have started using neosporin, seeing results in 5 days.
  14. for olive skin tones (same as me) the only way to completely remove dark spots is to use hydroquinone 4%, you can only get it through a prescription. It will take about 5 days for it to lighten dramatically (2x a day application). And you must apply with a q-tip precisely on the spot, otherwise you will bleach the skin that isn't dark and it will all look splotchy. There is no fast way to get rid of dark spots. But you can quickly cover it with a good concealor, hit your local department stor
  15. I use the on a clear day protection cream. It can be used as a moisturizer or a make-up primer. It basically blocks out all the bad environmental pollutants in the air. I love it, I use it under my sunscreen and it keeps my face from getting greasy throughout the day. Its $15 for 1 ounce but its well worth it. I don't really have a problem paying more for acne products because usually the department store brands will guarantee results-or your money back, not something you can do at Walmart or C
