  1. hi, i totally understand what you are going through. i gave up on confiding in people without acne a long time ago b/c they just really dont get it. thats why i like this community so much b/c you can come here and find others that can relate to what you are going through. i suffered with acne for a long time and what finally cleared me was sulfur and a low dairy diet. as for makeup, i wear it often and it doesnt break me out. its a matter of finding the right one for your skin. same goes for p
  2. thanks honeymaid,i have ethnic skin too. this thread was a great idea. edited to ask: why is it posted in this forum? i rarely come in here and would have missed it.
  3. neo ointment will work better. its vaseline PLUS vitamin e and cocoa butter which will help it to not scar.
  4. i highly rec sulfur products! you can use a sulfur soap or a sulfur leave on lotion. mario badescu has a couple of them. and for your marks i'd rec the mario badescu whitening mask. my marks have gotten a ton better since i started using it. good luck to you!
  5. boscia purifying cleansing gel is excellent! doesnt contain vitamin e though.
  6. you can try dabbing it with a sulfur mask. leave it on overnite to reduce swelling. not sure if it will help with the redness though. good luck to you. and have a great time regardless of your skin!
  7. Most of are in the same boat. I had mini large pores or tiny scaring. More recently, I got a shallow scar. I am using differin. Asking for retin A from my dermatologist and asking about non ablative laser treatment. I am so envious of people with clear skin. If you look at me, much like BX, I got an athletic physique, 6pac, good looks, eat healthy but, stuck with scarring. It honestly could be worse. The shallow scar is crippling my self esteem so, I am considering laser treatment. I am the sort
  8. yea, you need to clarify. is it microderms you're asking about or lasers?? they are 2 totally different things. if its microderms you're considering, i can tell you from my own personal experience that they dont help with scarring. i had a series of them done and was very disappointed with the outcome.
  9. i totally relate to everything you said. have you tried sulfur products? sulfur and a low dairy diet cleared me up. best of luck to you!
  10. ^ same thing happened to me too. my cystic acne returned but i refused to do another round of it.
  11. i second this! neo ointment is great for popped pimples and helps them fade away without leaving a scar.
  12. i used natures gate vitamin E oil for a few months and really liked it. it didnt break me out at all and my skin is hypersensitive. i didnt use it for acne though, just to improve texture. vitamin E makes my skin look a lot healthier and smoother.
  13. boscia purifying cleansing gel is awesome/ sulfate free. sold at ulta/sephora.
  14. ?? those percentages dont add up.... anyway accutane was definitely not a permanent solution for me. my acne came back full force. exactly i totally agree with you!. i have another friend who took accutane and her acne came back worst! and she had to take accutane twice, but still her acne came back again. most people suceed with accutane some of them don´t. but just because it didn´t work for you doesn´t mean is not gonna work for other people. i´m not saying that accutane is a permanent s

  19. you're welcome. sulfur improved my acne dramatically however i was still getting bumps under my jawline. everywhere else was clear. thats when i started experimenting with diet and discovered that dairy was giving me the jawline bumps. so now i only have dairy in very small amounts. good luck to you!
  20. Thanks! I love your quote of the day, very inspirational! =) thank you, im glad you like it. the only thing im considering right now is a filler. i have a pit between my eyes. ive been told that i have to be very careful because for one that is a very, thin delicate area of the face and for two i have dark skin. i hear a lot of people say that the filler traveled and left lumps near the scar or gave their scar a donut effect but i noticed you didnt mention those things about fillers. do yo
  21. your skin looks great. i was just telling someone in another thread that despite what people say, medicated cleansers DO work. im very happy for you
  22. thats awesome!! i tell ya, im in love with the Mario Badescu line. they have amazing products. there is a huge transformation in my complexion since i started using their products.
