  1. Well, I already have jawline breakouts so I hope my trying out Physcian's Formula Mineral Makeup doesn't make it worse!
  2. I just purchased the Physican's Formula you can purchase at any Walmart or Target...general retail chains should have it. I paid about $9.50-$10.00 for it. I have used it the last to days....it has really good coverage for a simple powder and I haven't had any problems with breakouts from it at all. Actually I think the powder is helping to keep the oil at bay...I can only hope. It has only been a few days but so far I like it! Good luck to you.
  3. Wow guys! Thanx for all the advice! My friend as well as many of you mentioned the mineral makeup and I actually broke down and bought some on Sunday. I have used it the last 2 days without any flare ups and the coverage does amazingly well. I read about the regimen and went out and bought some "CHEAP" version of the benxyol peroxide (10% instead of the 2.5% recommended) used it sparingly and got horribly dry, bumpy, irritated skin from it. I guess I should have payed more heed to the 2.5% recom
  4. Help! I am getting married with in the next year (no date yet) and I stopped wearing makeup completely about 4-5 months ago. I was hoping that stop wearing it would clear my skin. I only wish that was true. I tryed switching from Covergirl to Nutrogena first and that didn't help so I just stopped. I only wear makeup on special occasions (i.e. holidays, birthdays, special dates out with my fiance). But I do notice now that if I do put on makeup for such occasions that I break out very easily us
  5. I stopped wearing makeup completely about 4-5 months ago. Found the man of my dreams so I stopped wearing makeup cuz I didn't have to impress anyone anymore. He saw me with my makeup off all the time, and he thinks I am beautiful reguardless, so I just stopped. I was hoping that stop wearing it would clear my skin. I only wish that was true. I tryed switching from Covergirl to Nutrogena first and that didn't help so I just stopped. I only wear makeup on special occasions (i.e. holidays, birthday
  6. I tried Nutrogena, it is no better than any other foundation. At least on my skin it didn't help clear my face at all. It still made my face look oily too. Best of luck if you want to try it though.

  8. My inner thighs and on well...lets just say my privates.....I heard a lot of guys say they got it down south too so I fig. I would share that girls...or at least this girl...has that problem too. My gues is that it is from sweat? I dunno though. Also had major cysts in my ears too when I was younger, and definatly had the arm pit zits too. Totally sux dont' it! LOL oh well!
  9. Dang! I am glad I read this thread before investigating futher! I plan to be married in the next year and there is a possibility of my soon to be hubby and I starting a family ASAP. I am not going to a dermatologist now, but I am glad I knew this little piece of info just incase I do. To responde to the previous poster......I think it is stupid to have to go on it if you ARE NOT sexually active...I mean if the only side effect is to a possible fetus....then say to your derm "What possible fetus?
  10. Me:21/Female Well, I don't know where I get my confidence from but no matter who I have been with I don't worry about my blemishes, just like alot of others metioned if they really care about YOU then they won't care about something as insignificant as that. And if you think she might really be a shallow enough girl then maybe you should hold out your search for the "right" girl. A couple of my X's were surprised and actually impressed at how confident I was in myself even though I have facial
  11. My doctor recomended this for my egzima but I find the product to thick and greasy. I am using a fregrance free version of Oil of Olay with SPF. Oil of Olay has great products and it is very light weight on the skin so you don't feel "caked up" or greasy from your lotion. I am not sure what is the best though I am just now trying to experiment and make my skin better.
  12. I have the same thing....only mine gets worse. I get large swollen lumps as well that sometimes burst and some times go away. But just like others have mentioned they are reoccuring. I can't pop the little white ones, but sometimes all I have to do is sweeze an area of skin between my breast (whether there is a bump there or not) and that foul smelling puss will comes out. My friend that goes to a dermatologist regularly says it isn't the same type of acne that is on your face...but she didn't e
