  1. Be careful going "all natural". Not all "natural" things are safe to use on skin while pregnant. I have been using a sulfur based mask as a spot treatment and eating more fruits and veggies. Is green tea safe to drink? Sorry, I don't know much about tea...does it have caffeine in it? I'll look into the face wash, too. Thanks for the tips. Good luck trying to conceive!!!! :)
  2. I posted asking for help at the Everyday Minerals site asking for help covering acne, but I haven't gotten much help. Maybe someone here can help! I have the following products at my disposal, but recommendations are welcome too. The flat top brush Start to Finish in fair Pick Me Up Pink (pearl) Mint Concealer Intensive Concealer Fair Multi-Intensive Concealer Fair Neutral Semi Matte Foundation Fair Neutral Matte Foundation Sandy Fair Matte Foundation (can you tell I'm super pale?) Sunlight C
  3. Let me clarify... During the work week, I wash within 5 minutes of getting out of bed. However, there have been times (home sick from work, on the weekends, etc) that I may not wash for several hours after waking up. Either way, my skin seems to get worse as the day goes on. I don't think the washing/not washing right away has anything to do with it.
  4. Yep, I've noticed that for a long time. I have no clue why that is. It seems like my skin starts off looking its best for the day, and then after I cleanse, its downhill from there.
  5. Hmm...I think I had one of those once. (Knock on wood...it better stay away! I hope I'm not jinxing myself by talking about it!) It was a bump that was skin-colored on the bottom right of my chin, close to the jawline but not on the jawline. It actually felt like a little pea or pebble under the skin. It got red and swollen for a bit after I stupidly messed with it (tried squeezing it)...eventually with my regular regimen at the time (PC 2% BHA and BP spot treatment), it went away...but i
  6. BlueDove, I feel your pain. I just posted something similar myself. I'm also pregnant. Most people seem to want us women that are preggers to stay away from BP and salicylic acid...though some doctors give it the ok. One thing I've pretty much heard everyone say to stay away from is retinol. Hope that helps SOME...I'm still struggling myself.
  7. So...when I was a teenager I suffered from acne pretty badly. I tried all sorts of over-the-counter things, but what eventually worked for me was the following: Cetaphil gentle cleanser Neutrogena on the spot acne treatment (vanishing formula) Paula's Choice 2% BHA liquid (a fantastic product) And...since I'm female...birth control pills! A combination of those things gave me GORGEOUS skin. Seriously, women would randomly come up to me in public and compliment me on my skin. After suffering
  8. Actually, I've been told by my doc and from researching online that benzoyl peroxide should NOT be used.
  9. By the way, if you email Paula's Choice customer service or call the number (they are on the website) you can request free samples. That is what I did before I purchased this stuff. They sent me a a sample of pretty much every SA product for the face that they have.
  10. http://www.cosmeticscop.com/shop/category2...PE=2&PAGETYPE=S The BEST SA products (and I've used several) are the BHA products from Paula's Choice. Personally I use the 2% solution. I use it at night after washing my face/removing makeup, and BP in the morning. They aren't expensive either. I was paying $7 for the Clear Advantage Daily Acne Clearing Lotion which didn't do anything for me...this product comes in 1 oz. The Paula's Choice stuff is about $14 for 4 oz.
  11. From what I've read on the internet there doesn't seem to be any firm evidence that accutane and depression are linked. However, I'm sure we all know that it is easy to become depressed when dealing with something like acne. So although I think these lawsuits are probably frivolous, maybe it will help bring attention to the fact that people (especially kids) that suffer from acne can easily be depressed, and may need help to become social and feel better about themselves.
  12. http://news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&u=/a..._restrictions_2 WASHINGTON - The Food and Drug Administration (news - web sites) is facing renewed pressure from lawmakers to require that patients receiving the acne drug Accutane, health workers who prescribe it and drugstores that dispense it enroll in a national registry. Four lawmakers including Rep. Bart Stupak (news, bio, voting record), D-Mich., whose teenage son committed suicide while taking Accutane, threatened on Thursday to seek l
  13. I have been using the clean and clear advantage (1% SA) recently as well. I don't know if it's really helping though.
