    Does Anyone Else...

    100% agree with you. I've always loved autumn/winter and loathed the summer (regardless of acne). However, I feel much more comfortable this time of year due to more hours of darkness. In the brighter summer months, I feel much more exposed and vulnerable. Wish it was winter all year round.
  2. Hey guys/girls. I've not posted here in a couple of years, but I'm starting to struggle with my acne again lately and I'm just on a bit of a downer this evening and had a bit of a cry after I washed my face a while ago (thanks to the hideous red marks covering my face). I just can't seem to win this battle....i drink nothing but water, I eat lots of fruit and veggies, I keep my face clean, I take vitamins, I've seen the doctor, yet I'm still suffering with acne after 10 years. I don't know w
  3. Hi there! I can't recommend the clarisonic enough!! I got mine over a year ago...it didn't make me break out at all! Your skin feels so clean and fresh after using, and it makes so much difference. I'm still using mine now! It's got rid of my acne and is clearing up my red marks significantly!! I really suggest investing in one. Hope it works for you!

    1. I was just curious . . you said the clarisonic mia worked to clear up your skin. Did it make you breakout for a while and is it still working now? I want to get one but I'm afraid it'll just be a waste of money for me . .

      1. hello! Another Brit here!! How is your skin getting on from your last post where you were upset and frustrated? Do you have a regimen you're following or anything?

          ClariSonic

          I've been using the clarisonic for about 3 months. My sister talked me into buying it, and it was the best thing i've ever agreed to. My marks have faded drastically, my skin is always so smooth, so glowy, and just feels a lot cleaner. I've had so many compliments about my skin (even my manager at work has even said how great my skin looks lately). So I would highly recommend this product. It's a great investment!
        2. hey there fellow brit =)

          1. leave it on the face for 15 min, rinse without rubbing (not to irritate). Some people also add jojoba oil. I guess I would too if I had it. Use spf afterwards cause it has salicylic acid. If you are interested check out the link: http://thegreenbeautyguide.com/?p=93

            oh, and I suggest doing a patch test first to make sure you are not allergic to it or something. Good luck:)

            1. I recommend reading the reviews on acne.org first.

              What I do: (usually, now I'm recovering from TCA:), so I have a break from the mask, I'll definitely get back to it asap though. I use it twice a week (some people more often, but be cereful cause it dries out the skin, moisturiser is a must). My recipe: 3 uncoated aspirin tablets, 1 spoon of organic honey, a few drops of water,

              1. Hey! Thanks a lot for your comment!! That's cool u liked my little list! :)....my skin isn't as oily as it once was, but it gets a bit shiny during the course of the day. I'm interested in doing aspirin masks....how do you do them? How often? any advice? I'd like to try it out. :)

                1. continuation of the previous comment:) - ...a week. plus moisturising a lot, especially after the masks, as they may make your skin dry and then it might start overcompensating with oil again. x

                  1. hey, I checked your profile cause I really liked the list of the things you love:) I saw in one of your old posts that you had problems with oily skin. I don't know if you still have that problem. I used to have that too, plus breakouts. Now I just have scars to deal with. Anyway, I just want to share what helped with my oily skin: no dairy and sugar!, low gi diet, aspirin masks! twice
