    I'm an Essex girl (UK)
  1. I saw an advert in my local paper this weekend for ‘Futur-tec’. It was advertised as ‘Effective and painless in tackling harsh face and body imperfections such as wrinkles, cellulite, acne, acne scarring and stretch marks’. Apparently it combines ‘laser, micro-current, ultrasound and vacuum in one state-of-the art treatment’. It seems it helps with both indented scaring and hyperpigmentation. Here is the website: http://www.caci-international.co.
  2. Hello..... Neutrogena do a good day moisteriser - its called Moisture Day Lotion, SPF 15, you can get it from Boots and its £7.95 for 75ml. Also, the Body Shop do loads of SPF moisturisers - Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Tea Tree Oil and Seaweed (all £7 for 50mls I think). The Tea Tree Oil and Seaweed ones are especially for oily skin and leave a matte base which is good. Hope this helps.
  3. Yesterday I bought Oxy-on-the-Spot for £2.70 in Superdrug (normally £4.15). It was some sort of offer or something. So if anyone wants to stock up....
  4. I've read about how Accutane prevents oil being produced and thus reducing the acne, but what if you don't have particularly oily skin, yet still have acne. Would Accutane still work?
  5. Ok you very clever people, I've got another one for you - is there a glycolic acid 8-10% product for sale over here? There must be - I just can't bloody find it! Been to Boots and the chemist, but alas - no success.
  6. OK, you convinced me. First things first. My pictures are on my computer. How do I upload them to a geosites site or whatever? Thank you.
  7. I know these sorta questions are annoying, so sorry! What gycolic acid products can you buy in the UK? I went into Boots today and looked at the ingredients of a million bottles and people looked at me like I was mad. Couldn't find it anywhere. THEN I went into the chemist/pharmacy and asked for something with glycolic acid in it AND I asked for Alpha-Hydroxy acid, but they didn't have anything. Is there a brand name that I can ask for?
  8. Oh, well that sounds easy(!) It took me about half an hour to turn the bloody computer on, it will take me 10 years to figure out how to upload/download.. blah blah blah. MAybe I wont bother. Thanks anyway!
  9. I'm gonna give it a shot. Written by a doctor. Sounds like he knows what hes talking about. Most medicated/deep pore cleansing facewashes have salicylic acid in them (I think), but I am having trouble finding a 8-10% glycolic acid product. I can't find the Neutrogena healthy skin lotion here in the UK (if its not at www. boots.com then you prob can't get it here). Anyone?
  10. I absolutely cannot find Neutragena On the Spot 2.5% BP in Boots, Superdrug or Tescos. Do they not sell it here or am I just not looking well enough? Is there another 2.5% BP product available in this country? PS I am very computer illiterate, it has taken me about half an hour to write this stupid post, so please don't suggest me buying it online!
  11. A bit unrealated, sorry, but how do you get photos into your actual posts? Cut and paste disn't work for me.
  12. Hello I have read a lot on this board about various types of acids (eg salicylic, glycolic, alpha hydroxy and mandelic acid), but I am still a bit confused as to what they are/do. Are they used for the treatment of active acne and/or scars? And where in the UK can they be bought from? High street shops like Boots and Superdrug or only from pharmaciesor on prescription? Thank you.
  13. Hate to sound lazy, but wouldn't an extra Vitamin C tablet a day do the same thing as lemon juice? And I'm a bit worried about applying vinigar to my face - don't some people use it to clean toilets and stuff? What exactly does it do to to skin? Wear away layers? It doesn't cause wrinkles does it? Thanks
  14. I've been on Minocycline for about 2 months, and although it got rid of all of the small, non red spots on my forehead in about a week, it has yet to touch the big red ones on my cheeks. If it hasn't started working by now, what are the chances that it never will?
  15. To answer my own question, I take it this is severe: http://www.wacotrib.com/cim-local/images/a...llsize/2356.jpg But I still don't know quite how mild or moderate mild and moderate are!
