  1. I had braces when I was in junior high but my teeth went crooked again over the years to the point where I needed them straightened again a couple of years ago. Since my problem was mainly with overcrowding and a few teeth going crooked in the front and sides I was able to get invisalign and they did a great job. I did need to have quite a few of my teeth 'reshaped' (basically filed down) so that they would all fit but it really wasn't that bad. I have a retainer that I wear every night now,
  2. I've been using it for seven years now and it is the best I have ever used as well. Everytime I try somthing different I always kick myself after as it either clumps and makes my lashes stick together, or it is impossible to remove without losing half my lashes. I've finally just learned my lesson, cut my losses and go for the full and soft everytime.
  3. I would probably still wear a full face of makeup everyday. Even if not a full face, mascara and eyebrow pencil because my brows and lashes are so blond they are invisible and I am almost as self-concious about them as I am about acne.
  4. I break out everyday, but it seems to get worse around that time of the month and slightly before.
  5. I am 30 years old and I have finally, in the past 6 months, outgrown the bacne that I have had since I was 14. I have tried just about every nonprescription remedy out there to no avail and in the last couple of years I just sort of gave up. I had just been washing with a mild, unscented baby soap in the shower once a day and that is it, no BP, no SA and no other kind of treatment. My bacne just sort of started clearing up a few months ago and just kept getting better and better every day. I
  6. You can actually remove the yellow deodorant stains from your white shirts quite well using vinagar. Just pour white vinagar over the yellow stain and let it sit for a couple of hours. Then pour a little laundry soap over it and spray with a little water and rub it in a bit and then let it sit again for a little while. Then throw it in the washing machine in the hottest water that the fabric can handle and the stains will fade right out. I do this with all my white shirts.... it works the b
  7. Hey I was reading one of your posts under my topic where I was venting about my horrible hair days. Is there a specific baby powder you would recommend using?

    1. I am 29 and have had bacne since I was 14. The only thing I have ever found that clears it up completely is tanning beds. I now go to them every summer so that I will be able to wear backless shirts and bikinis without feeling like a freak and like everyone is staring at my back. You may want to start going in for 12 minutes a couple of times a week and gradually work your way up to 20 minute sessions. I usually start seeing improvement within the second week, and by a month I am completely
    2. I have the same problem with comedones and Neutrogena Oil Free acne wash with 2% SA has been the only thing that keeps my skin under control. My face explodes whenever I try something else.
    3. If you are trying to draw it to a head, you may want to try a warm, moist compress on the spot. But I think I would leave it be for now. And I wouldn't be putting any more BP on it, it will only make it look worse to have flakes on top of a big red zit. If it were me, I would probably cover it with concealer, but if your skin is dry this will only make it look worse. I have given up on using BP for this reason... I don't find it clears you up any faster and makeup won't cover as well or look
    4. This is the only face wash that I have used for the last couple of years because it works really well to keep my clogged pores and bumpy forehead under control. Whenever I have tried a non-medicated face wash, I have broken out pretty badly. If clogged pores are your problem, I would reccommend trying it.
    5. Try rubbing some baby powder (or any powder) through your hair around the scalp area. I always use baby powder on my hair on days when I don't feel like washing it, or after I work out and it works really well to absorb the excess oil and not make it look so greasy.
    6. Try Drysol... depending on where you live it may or may not be prescription. I've found this works the best for my hyperhidrosis. Some others that are not so harsh that you may want to try first are Maxim and Certain Dry. Again, you may need a prescription for these. Good luck.
    7. I am 29 years old and my back has looked like yours since I was 14. I have tried absolutely everything: BP, SA, toner, Proactive, rubbing alcohol, vinegar (both internally and externally), oatmeal, raw potatoes, Head & Shoulders, Nizoral, exfoliation, eliminating greasy/sugary food... and those are the ones I remember. I have literally tried everything short of medication. The only thing that ever cleared me up 100% was tanning beds. I have been using them every summer for the past 5 y
    8. ^^ Yep. It's funny, everyone I know who's my age remembers where they were when they found out Cobain died... it's like JFK or something.
