  1. Hi, I have been using retin-a .25% (a really low dosage) for about 2 weeks now, in the past 3 days, my skin has started breaking out pretty badly . its all over my cheeks, sides of face and temples. What I would like to know is how long does this last? One week, 2 weeks, a month? I know I have to go through this "purging" stage, I just hope it dosent last very long. Thanks! Eva
  2. I think Johnsons head to toe body wash is the same as Purpose Cleanser. Same company, smells the same, both tear free (ph balanced for the eye)

    DAY 6 So I have been stressed so I will probably breakout pretty badly. It happens everytime I get stressed. My current breakout is drying up, which is good. I have to say my skin is not as dry as it was, a little right after I wash my face, but not that all day dryness. The Neutrogena lotion is great. My skin under my bottom lip looks bleached. Its lighter than the rest of my face. When I do my makeup you can notice a little more, but I dont care anyway.

    Okay, so as i just took a shower and was brewing over my skin, I think i may have figured it out........ 1 --- i think its the concealer that I started using a couple of days ago. I am using Physicians Formula Concealer Twins Cream Concealer 2-in-1 Correct and Cover. Its supposed to be Non-comedogenic, however, i think that is what is breaking me out. the breakout is primarly where i have the most red and dark marks and that is where i use the concealer. makes sense to me. i am going to

  7. i know its not funny but i laughed when i read about your daughter drawing you with acne. my 3 year old daughter asked me why i have red spots on my face and the other mammys dont. i was heartbroken. but their honesty is so funny. OMG, I was totally heartbroken when he did that, i wanted to crawl in a hole, but yes, it is funny!

    DAY 4 So i have a few more bumps on my face today--again. I pray for clear skin I am going to stick it out this time, I am going to do this for at least 3 months!!! Please check out my post on the make-up help section. I am trying to get a makeup ratings page set up. Thanks!!!!! http://www.acne.org/messageboard/index.php?showtopic=79706
  9. I modified my post, you are right to want to protect your email address, i just thought it would be easier for me because we have limited space in our message boxes. I will remember to check it often. Thanks!! Makeup alley is wonderful (thank you for sharing that with me, it was fun to play around on! ), however, it is not really geared toward individuals with acne prone skin. Yes it is true that we all react differently to different products, but we are all here for the same thing--
  10. I emailed Dan regarding a Makeup Ratings section, just like the Product Ratings section that is currently in place. Dan thinks its a great idea, however, he needs a list of makeup products. Here is where you come in.... MESSAGE ME AND IN THE MESSAGE TITLE type the BRAND NAME of the makeup you are using. For instance Bare Minerals, Almay, Covergirl, etc. In the text type what type of make up it is.....liquid, powder, mineral, concealer. Please include if you wish, a rating on a scale of

  12. Hey girl, I am so with you. I am going to be 29 in a few weeks, I have 3 children and have had acne since i am 11 years old. It was once moderate/severe. I had every type in the book, and now its light/moderate acne. I went to a derm not to long ago and her attitude was "sure, you can go on accutane" but after thinking about it, i didnt want to because I dont even think my acne is severe enough now (i should have just taken it though). I wish I can get something for all these scars from all
