  1. It's a little pricey but if it'll keep my skin from breaking out I'll pay a little extra! Thanks
  2. Hey guys, I'm going away to Mexico next week and will need a serious sunscreen but I find that sunscreens with a heavier spf feel greasy and tend to make me break out. Can anyone recommend me a sunscreen with at least an spf of 30?
  3. Thanks for sharing!! I'm definitely gonna give this a try What brand are you using? Where did you get it?
  4. Aloe vera seems to help... but its definitely not a quick fix
  5. I don't ever get the amount of sleep I should. The problem is not that I don't have the opportunity... I simply can't. I average about 4 maybe 5 hrs a night lately (i think; it's hard to say for sure because I wake up so often). Anyways, one of my friends recommended melatonin, which is a hormone that is already produced by the body, and I was just wondering if anyone here has had any experience with it (or knows someone who is taking it). Does it seem to effect acne at all? Thanks
  6. Last night I used benzoyl peroxide (prob a bit more than i should have as it turns out) as a spot treatment (for a whitehead that was hardly noticeable). It was left on for about 14-15 hrs. This morning I woke up with a circular welt/burn(?) in the area i applied the dollop. It is red, raised, and inflammed and about 1 cm or so in diameter. Has anyone had a similar experience? Any suggestions for how it should be dealt with?

  10. I don't know about red marks but I would think people would be ill advised to rush out and try to clear their skin troubles with Mary Jane's assistance. Here's the experience others have had with with marijuana in relation to their complexion http://www.steadyhealth.com/marijuana_and_acne_t56010.html Doesn't seem too promising a treatment to me. But I suppose everyone reacts differently. Perhaps you're a fortunate freak who responds favourably to marijuana lucky you
  11. Has anybody had any experiences to share regarding this? Can exercising maybe speed up the healing of these damn red marks? http://www.prevention.com/article/1,5778,s...-6801-1,00.html
  12. Although i do not have roscea i still may get this done as it targets several other problems and do have some mild facial redness. Anyone have experience with this?
  13. I really want a tan but the medication that I use for my acne won't allow it so thought that 'd try a sunless tanner. I tried a particular one yesterday and ended up with a lovely skin rash. Although it was non comedogenic it was still irritating as you can tell by lokking at my red splotchiness. Hooray. Anyways any help on finding a sunlerss tanner that will not irritate my skin and above all will not give me acne would be much appreciated. Thanx
  14. Bimbles did Diane make your skin look worse or did it just not help make your skin look any better?
  15. I might give it a try. Why not? But has anyone tried something similiar and had as positive experience. Thanx http://www.absoluteacneinfo.com/breakfast.html
  16. How long does it take approximately for the body to build up a resistance to antibiotics? Can the body build up a reistance to topical anti-biotics? Thanx you very much.
  17. I'm using Benzoyl Peroxide and I recently started Diane 35. I was reading the ratings for B5 and it got some reallly good reviews. BP obviously dries the skin out, and apparently Diane 35 is supposed to as well. Would going on vitamin B5 be just too much in the way of drying my skin? Thanx.
  18. Thank you all very much for your support. I just hope this is all over with soon. I've gotten rid of it before I just hope that I can do it again! I just hope he can pu up with me while I'm all mopey like this.
  19. I'm really depressed about my skin and I mean my skin was actually perfect when I met my boyfriend. We never talk about my skin but I knw he can tell its there. He's so sweet and always says the sweetest things but I just don't understand how he can mean them. I find it hard to even look at him. I just don't feel like I can have a boyfriend when my self esteem is like this . I just wish my skin could look how it did when I first met him so things could be the way they used to. I just want to be
  20. Why am breaking out so badly in just this one area. I have barely any zits elsewhere but there is this one area on my chin with several severe zits!! What is wrong? Somebody please help me!!
  21. Ok I had a whitehead on my chin and they do often turn into zits. This one however turned into what sounds an awful lot like a cyst. Is this possible? Can a little whitehead turn into a huge painful cyst or is it just a zit?
  22. If your worried about your shaving lotion making you break out then use fruit of the earth aloe vera as your shaving gel. This stuff couldn't hurt acne, if anything it helps.
  23. Like Dan says, you should gradually up the does. I would not suggest using it night and day just yet because for me at least my skin gets far too irriated. For the first little while just try using it at night and when you think that you areready try uping the dose. Hope this helps.
