  1. You may be using too much of the benzoyl peroxide too quickly, and/or you may be allergic to it. It's a good idea to stop using it for a few weeks. In the meantime while your skin heals, I would suggest to use a gentle cleanser and moisturizer. You may want to take medicine like tylenol or motrin for the pain and puffiness on your face, and make sure to drink a lot of water. Applying cool compresses gently to your face may help as well. As long as it didn't burn too badly, it should feel bet
  2. So I'm at a cross road with my skincare. Currently I have mild acne that fluctuates during the month because of hormones; sometimes I will be clear, and other weeks I'll break out. Currently for skincare I use Grandpa's Soap Co Sulfur acne soap to wash in the evening with my Clarisonic, and apply a moisturizer. For a mask I will apply epsom salt to my skin to sit for 30 minutes about once a week. In the mornings I use a plain daily cleanser by salma hayek or ponds cold cream depending on what I
  3. That is awesome!!!! How often do you use the clarisonic to cleanse? I use it every night, so just once a day. When I first started using it (a little over 2 years ago), I used it about 2-3 times a week for about 3 weeks before transitioning over to once a day just incase it could irritate my skin. I never have experienced irritation or issues with my clarisonic, and I can't imagine being without it!
  4. I have had a completely different experience with the clarisonic, which was ultimately what cleared my skin. Two and a half years ago I had moderate acne (whiteheads, blackheads, red spots) on my cheeks, and t-zone that didn't seem to be clearing up no matter which products I tried (and I tried a lot). In the Winter of 2012 I bought a clarisonic and after 3 months, my broken out skin was more controlled. The texture of my skin was much smoother and very soft, and the reddish pigmentation that
  5. My skin is now clear, and the dark spots left behind by some of my acne is gone. It takes time for the skin to heal, but anything moisturizing should help. Make sure you are drinking enough water, because hydrated skin can regenerate quicker than thirsty skin. As for topics you could put on your skin, I would recommend Clinique's dark spot corrector, and Ponds cold cream. The dark spot corrector really does make a difference in the dark spots on your skin, but you have to make sure you are c
  6. SociallyAwkward, eating veggies and fruits are good for you and if you prefer to drink them, do so! I have about 3-4 smoothies a week either in place of a meal or a smaller portion for a snack. In my green smoothie I pack in lots of kale (atleast 2 cups), 1/2 of an avocado (to make it creamy), a small kiwi, one pear and 1/2 of a green apple.
  7. The first formula looks like it has a few more ingredients: Hamamelis Virginiana Bark/Leaf extract, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil and a few others. Typically, the less chemicals the better, but you should try the "new" formula out and see how it works for you.
  8. Hey Blowmeout! I've never tried this product so I can't speak from experience. But, I think there is a way to get over "purging." If you introduce the product to your skin slowly, your skin will adjust and won't breakout. But if you start using the product for maximum effects in the beginning, your skin won't be used to it and will freak out. I think your skin is reacting to the amount of product you're using, and it could possibly be what is in it. Go a day without using the cream, and see
  9. Thank you for your replies Alex and VeeHaru, my skin is doing much better than a week ago! I think it was mainly the Aveeno wash that broke me out, possibly the bad food too. (:
  10. Hedgecore, I've been using 1 gram of Omega 3 Fish oil for a month and a half now, and my skin feels very soft. Hopefully it will help you. Whoever says that you look like you do drugs, ignore them. You know you don't, so try to not worry about what others think of you.
  11. Thank you CWR34, LewisS, LadyPink, and Hedgecore for all of your helpful replies! I used my normal face wash tonight, so I'll see how it looks in the morning. I'm also going to try and eat healthier (thankfully all of the delicious brownies are gone!) and see how things look in a few days. (:
  12. Hello Everyone! I woke up this morning and my skin was broken out, I have about 7 whiteheads on my nose and my mouth/chin area, and my skin seemed a bit oily today. Usually, my skin is clear, except 1 or 2 small whiteheads during certain times of the month. There have been 3 things that I think may have caused this acne to pop up, but I'm not sure which one. 1st, this past weekend I've been eating badly, consisting of a lot of sweet Bourbon brownies, and hotdogs with fries and c
  13. Shocksl, I use the Clinique moisturizing gel, and it keeps my skin soft and doesn't make my skin look shiny or sticky like lotions do. Hope this helped!
  14. Hello Danny! Primers can greatly even out the texture of skin, so your makeup will look smoother over it. A primer I've tried is the Porefessional primer by Benefit. I don't have any scarring, but it perfects my skin texture and it feels weightless.
  15. Katie789, thank you for sharing your favorite masks! I have both the Mint Julep Mask and the Freeman Charcoal and Black Sugar scrub and I love them both! (:
