  1. That's great! I hope it will continue to work for you. Good Luck!!
  2. I have been using aloe vera soap and aloe vera cream for about 2 1/2 weeks. I am seeing a major improvement. I know that the aloe vera straight from the plant heals faster. It is a waiting game, just try to stick with it. Good luck!!
  3. Try just a few peanuts at a time and see how your skin reacts. You will notice right away if it's going to cause a problem for you. I have a friend who is vegan and i know that there is alot that you can't have. Don't deprive yourself of something that you like. Good luck!!
  4. I had cystic acne too. I use aloe vera soap and aloe vera cream. I'm having great success with it. It doesn't work for everyone and it may take a few weeks to see a major improvement, but if you want to find out for yourself if it will work for you, it's called Aloe Vera by GRISI. I purchased mine at Wal.mart. Good luck!
  5. I have been using aloe vera soap and aloe vera cream and my skin is looking alot better. Now i have a healthy glow. I bought it at Wal.mart.
  6. That's great. When i was a little girl, my mom would always use aloe vera straight from the steam on cuts and scrapes. I love this stuff. It also helps to prevent scarring. I am really happy for your success. Keep smiling!!
  7. I use Neutrogena Skin Clearing make-up, with a neutrogena concealer, and a light dusting of powder.
  8. I can't use bar soap. I use a hypo allergenic body wash. Look for something that says, for sensitive skin. Or a baby wash.
  9. Having a darker complexion, you have the same thing as the red marks that lighter complexion suffers deal with. As long as it isn't scarring then they should fade away.
  10. If aloe vera does not conflict with what you are currently using. Try that. Also, vitamin e is used to prevent scarring, but if it has been there for three years, you may have to talk to your doctor about your other options.
  11. Yes. Most initial breakouts on any product will last from 3 days up to 2 weeks, depending on how your skin reacts to the new product. Give it a little longer.
  12. I think this is something that you should definately talk to your doctor about. He will be able to give you much better advice on birth control.
  13. It has been my experience that the clear pore gentle cleanser makes me breakout. You might change that step of your process and see if there is an improvement.
  14. Could you describe what you are having a problem with? We all want to help you, but we aren't sure what exactly you need advice on.

  16. Aloe vera soap and aloe vera cream to moisturize when needed. I have seen a big improvement in red marks. How long did you use aloe vera? And what else were you using with it. If you mix the wrong products, that could be the cause of an unneeded breakout. Try to simplify your products. Use only what is compatable.
  17. A grocery store should have it. Good luck! Let us know how it works.
  18. It could be that the coloration is the medicine in it killing the bacteria, like peroxide would do for a cut. If it is helping you then that is all that matters, right?
  19. I know what you mean. If it bothers you so much that people talk about other things, you should talk to a moderator about it. I don't know that there is much else you can do. Post questions about the things that you deal with and that should help you to get your questions answered. Good luck to you.
  20. I only moisturize when i feel like my skin needs it. I have enough natural oils for the most part. I moisturize when i feel the need, not because someone tells me i need to.
  21. I would suggest that you tell your parents that it bothers you that they mention it so much. Ask them to help you find something to help it. Then you will have to be open to what they say. It is all trial and error for most of us. Let them know what you have tried and ask for their advise. That way they know that it is something that they could help you with. If you shut them out, they will likely continue to mention it.
  22. It could be stress. Or a product reaction. It could be anything from a soap, a cleaner that you have come in contact with, a new detergent, just to name a few possibilities. Or it could be homones. If you are already under a dermotolgists' care. I would ask him/her, to take a look at it and ask for some advice there. I would say that is your safest bet.
