  1. Hello, I've been on minocycline and I've never had a sunburn while on it. Now I'm going on Doxycycline instead because I'm going to travel (since it protects against malaria too). So my question is if I never got sunburnt while on minocycline, does that mean I won't either on Doxy?
  2. I'm going to backpack throughout Asia for two months, mostly doing it overland (bus, train), so it's going to be hard to wash my face at the correct time (or even not being able to wash it at all) seeing as washrooms won't always be at my reach when I'm on the go, like on board of a bus. I was thinking of bringing with me those facial wipes/makeup remover towelettes. I know some people are against those, but I'll only use it exceptionally. Does anyone recommend any brand in particular (that doe
  3. I had awful, painful cystic acne all over my face, mostly my chin, mouth and jawline, like you, and I was put on Minocycline and I immediately saw drastic results within three weeks. By the third month, I was almost clear save for a couple little pimples (which i really didn't mind , i'd rather have tiny bumps rather than having quarter sized cysts). She then told me to continue on the antibiotic and added the birth control Alesse to see if the rest of the remaining acne would go away. Today, I
  4. In my case, it's the other ppl who are more critical towards me. I'm not my own worst critic nor am I in denial, because I know I have very bad skin. It is what it is. Take it or leave it,
  5. I've been on antibiotic (Minocycline) for almost 4 months now. Since it's killing the good bacteria in my gut, what probiotic do you recommend to restore its balance? I used to take Bio-K in the past, I was thinking of going back to that. I'm also planning to travel throughout south-east asia this summer, and I guess I'll be more prone to food poisoning because of the antibiotic (which is something I'm very paranoid about) . Can taking probiotics ahead of time and every day help prevent tha
  6. Honestly, I'd trade my scars for yours anytime!! They're really not as noticeable as you think. I think we'd have to be really really really close up to your face to see them like how they are presented in your picture. No need to worry more than necessary It's great to know that you're hearing from this guy again!
  7. The best foundation I've tried is Mary Kay Matte-Wear foundation and it's water-based. I have extremely oily skin, and this doesn't grease up on me a lot. Normally you need to buy it through a Mary Kay consultant (which I hate to do) but you can find them online instead (eBay or Amazon).
  8. That's an interesting question, I'd like to know too! I also wonder which application offers the best coverage, finish, etc.
  9. lol hell yea tell that to the Lush girl who kept talking to me about skin care...she was saying how drugstore products are not good becaus e they strip away the natural oils of the face yadiyadayada... I don't give a f*** , I only came to buy shampoo. It's like, people tell you things, suggest you things, things that we've already probably researched and heard so many times, and it makes me feel stupid, and I'm here thinking "Don't you think I already know that, and it might not be true for me
  10. Hello, I've been taking Minocycline for about 4 months now, and I've been gagging every morning. I've noticed that I always get some kind of saliva buildup in the back of my throat when I wake up. It feels like I want to vomit, but not really. It's just the saliva down my throat that I need to clear out. It makes my brushing my teeth an uncomfortable task. Now, I always take a pill in the afternoon and I try to take it with a meal as much as possible, sometimes I'm occupied and it's "imp
  11. Does green concealer work for those kinds of marks? I really don't know what to do...whenever I put foundation , the brown marks still show through since they're so dark almost kind of black .I've tried Make Up Forever's Full Cover concealer but it's not the right shade and it comes up orange on my skin. so tired of this crap aka my face
