  1. I've been watching your regimen logs for a couple years now and I just wanted to say that you are an inspiration. The last week my face has been awful and I have felt down about it, but reading your posts brings me hope.

  2. Hiiii its been forever. Ok well not forever... but... a long time. LOL Im breaking out again right now. it might have to deal with me working out and taking supplements. the hell if i know.

  3. Hey, Girl,

    My skin is doing so-so. You know, I gave up the regimen a long time ago because the redness of my skin was out of control. A few months ago, I went to a dermatologist and she told me I have rosacea! So I totally changed my medications to rosacea stuff (mostly sulphur based) and my skin is doing okay. I'm still getting some cysts, and am thinking seriously about going back o

  4. You were on about 2 weeks ago and I missed you!? How's your skin? Your life? :)

  5. I've been doing well with taking my supplements. I am taking Centrum multivitamin, also Evening Primrose OIl capsules (1000 mg). I plan to go up to 2000 mg of EPO. I'm also taking 1 Fish Oil Capsule Daily. Started drinking a glass of V8 juice with a scoopful of powered greens yesterday. My Skin Medica toner is gone. So now my daily regimen is: AM: Cetaphil bar wash, 15% AHA/BHA cream Makeup: Bare Escentuals PM: Skin Medica face wash gel, Retin-A micro I only have one tiny tube of Retin-A micro
  6. I am posting pictures mainly for my own record. But feel free to comment if you have any suggestions. Notice all the red spots on the right side of my face? Those are not pimples, or at least not like any pimple I've had before. They are just red spots, without being raised or filled with any pus. Sometimes a few of them to fill up, but not often. I'm perplexed. The worst part is all the closed comedones near my temples and on my chin. It looks like a plucked chicken!!! Also, I'm a little flushe
  7. Arrrrrgh... Okay, so, I'm disappointed in this regimen. I've given it several months now and it's not working. This is what I've been doing for the past few months. It's not exactly what the esthetician ordered, but close. AM In shower, wash gently with Cetaphil bar. Pat dry and cleanse with Skin Medica Toner (with tea tree oil) Apply 15% AHA/BHA cream (occasionally, I'll have a breakout and I'll switch to BP for a few days. Not often.) Sometimes if my skin seems dry I'll apply the Skin Medica
  8. Arrgh. My skin is doing so crappy right now. I have fallen back into the trap of switching around products, trying to figure out what is wrong. Right now, I have 2 cysts on my left cheek. I have several comedones around my jaw. I'm thinking about stopping the retin-a and going back on the strict Dan Kern regimen. But I'm not sure. I don't want to end up with rosacea and a slew of closed comedones again. At the same time, I don't want to have cysts plus red pimples on my face. Why, oh why,
  9. Hey there! Thanks for the reply about body wash. I passed on the info. In return, may I make a suggestion about your workout? For the past few weeks, I've been alternating between cardio and pilates. I have been doing Jazzercise 3 times a week forever, which has kept me in decent shape. But since I've been working out with my Winsor Pilates DVD (which you can get pretty much anywhere) I've REALLY noticed a difference. I mean, my arms look more defined. My stomach is definitely flatter in that
  10. Last night, I put on retin-a micro before bed. After my shower today, I applied BP and then Cetaphil moisturizer. My skin looks especially bumpy right now
  11. Hi Lion Queen, I looked up AmLactin, hoping there would be a related product in shower gel form. Do you know of any shower gels or body scrubs that help with dry, flaky skin? This is actually for my mother. She just got out of the hospital and her whole body is very dry and itchy. The flakes fall off onto her clothes. (ick) She says she has millions of lotions, but wants something that she can use in the shower. Any ideas? Thanks in advance. Tina
  12. Hi All, Sorry I haven't been updating much. I never went back to the aesthetician who started me on my retinoid regimen. I moved around a lot this summer and now I just don't have the money to keep going back to someone every month. Hopefully one day I will be able to do that because I do believe that the Jessner peel did wonders for my skin. The AHA/BHA plus retin-a is working out well for my clogged pores. Albeit at a snail's pace. My skin is smoother, but not smooth. Unfortunately, I have be
