  2. i'd recommend

    i'm having pretty good results with this. i wish i had tried it earlier >.
  3. i have recently started getting good results, after trying a variety of things [and probably damaging my skin in the process] over the past few months i would say it would be a good idea to draw up a plan, and change things month by month, to make it a controlled experiment, and find out what does and what does not work the important thing is to not fuck your skin up by being too harsh on it - that's the mistake i made before i took a more gentle approach i too switched to vegan/vege

    potentially more damaging than nourishing

    potentially more damaging than nourishing

    very harsh stuff. caused my skin alot of damage. can kill acne, but can damage skin. would not describe it as 'nourishing'
  8. up and down. quitting this kiehls facial cleanser soon i think. onto benzoyl peroxide from today. one side of my face is worse than the other. forehead, nose, chin is not perfect but pretty much fine. cheeks are pretty messed up as usual lately
  9. maybe talk to someone about it. if it bothers you, it's best not to avoid the subject, in my opinion
