  7. I don't "break out" from waxing -- I get ingrown hairs. I can't wax anywhere on my body! In order to shave my legs, I have to use a pumice to exfoliate in order to avoid the ingrown hairs (sigh)...I've been at this for decades and found that this is the ONLY thing that works. So, it may not be pimples that people are getting, but ingrown hairs. Cashmira
  8. I'm in my early 40's...mine's been hormonal, and I FINALLY just got put on Accutane! It's worked better than anything ever has. Go for it. Cashmira
