    Sea water helped me!!

    I went on a two week holiday, WITH MY PARENTS (at age 21) ... only to give the beach water a go since i prefer to take the natural approach. I visited the beach pretty much eveyday and here's the results it gave me.... I'd splash water on my face several times while in there, and thankfully there werent huge waves which allowed me to float on my stomach and just dunk my face in the water as long as i could, rubbing it. I exposed my face to the sun for once - i usually hide under make-up which

    Hey ALL! I honestly and totally forgot about this site! :-S hmm, guess that's a good thing right? *knock on wood* everything is still great, skin wise. Wish i could say the pink marks have completely gone but they're still there - fading...sllowwlllyyy! However, the main thing is no more bloody acne, they have seized and i'm SUPER happy about it! This is a fairly recent pic of me, i'm wearing a bit of loose powder and a little goes a long way! i mean, it manages to cover up the remaining

    DAY 28

    From the album: I know what i want NEXT christmas..

    Even though its been 1day since last photos... i posted this one cause i was suprised how little the redness was showing JUST after i got out of the shower today. Usually my face is pretty pink and acne itself is red!! Soo.. in other words, this was just something to keep me occupied even if for 5 minutes.. dont know how i'm gonna wait out a few days before posting pics, what do i do inbetween i get soo bored hehehe

    My skins pretty much the same as the previous pic, thought i'd throw one in where i'm wearing bit of make-up. My red marks are to the point now where i feel comfortable having my skin bare. Which i havent done since i was 16 and im 21 now... so i guess i got somethin to cheer about... And thanx for all your comments people Means A LOT!

    Thanks buddy Its going well.. Fade away left over red marks/pigmentation u mean?? ummm.. not really apart from keeping it reasonably moisturised avoiding oily products and products with fragrance etc.. ALSO, for 2 months now ive been using an Even Skin Tone Serum by ULTRAcuticals, cost me $75 for like 50ml or something... i reckon that has helped a bit.. its only applied at night, some mornings when i wake up my marks look like theyre not even there, its so light!! other mornings theyre visi

    Hey thanks hun!! yeah if ya look at my 2nd last pics u can see some shallow scarring. Pic doesnt show it well but they are there!! and the so called "redmarks" THEY are my pitted scars! even when the redness goes in time im sure the indentation will still be there. You've got scarring now cause the inflammation has gone down, u dont have that inflammed pimple filling it in... thats what happened to me once acne started clearing. i sure HOPE they "fill in" but i highly doubt it. i'll be looking

    Ok its been two months since i last posted a picture.. Took these today. tried different lighting and angle so u can see my scars, aint too deep but i think the pic doesnt bring em out enough.... meh! i tried. I'm happy with the way its going, still haven't broken out. This is my skin at its best i guess you could say.. Some days it looks like this, others my pink marks are more apparent (esp during the time of month) you know how it is girls, lol! For those that are wondering.. I haven't

    I'm back from my 2 week holiday and yay, i see improvement! Finally! The beach water and a bit of sun really did help my skin, its been looking more radiant than ever, i cant remember when my skin glowed this much. Of course i still have more pink marks i have to get rid of, but 2 visits to the beach a week should do. Also girls.. i havent worn make-up since beginning december and i think that too had an impact to the clearing up. I used to hide under make-up when i see my boyfriend ive been

    Greenberg : i seriously wouldnt know?? sorry. In my opinion, the salt minerals found in the water to me seem much more beneficial for the skin - natural! Hope it works for ya but

    If you compare my cheek to my neck (esp in the left pic) u can see the skin tone is totally different.. maybe cause i exfoliated just before i took the pic its still over scrubbed n pink. NO make-up in this picture btw!!

    sunburn

    Hmm, i quite like the sun! i tan as much as i can, and my red marks were terribly red. For those of u who dont know and havent seen my Gallery, i went on a two week holiday and was at the beach everyday, the salt water helped, but it was the combination of sun exposure as well (i believe)! My face and body were fairly burnt over the first week there and i was extremely paranoid that my marks would stay or turn brown... but they didnt. Ive continued to expose myself and red marks to the sun sever

    Hey all. wow havent been here for a good month!! How is everyone? Ive been going through some rough patches with the other half, been a bit stressed out and had no time to pop on here. (thankgod the stress didnt make me break out)! Ok well.. last time i posted i said i was taking roaccutane on and off... well i started taking it properly (40mg a day) for a week or so, then i stopped and havent taken a pill over 2 weeks now. My prescription repeat allows me 1 more box so overall i have 1 and a h
  22. I KNOW it was a stupid thing to do! But seriously it never occurred to me that i shouldnt be doing it. I guess i thought ive been off it for a month and it was OK (plus i really thought my skin was okay cause it wasnt dry) But boy was i wrong. When the beautician stripped the wax off my eyebrows it was SO painful and turned RED so quick! When she applied cream on it, it stung like CRAZY! When i sat up i saw a SIGN right infront of me saying - "Please notify staff if u are on any skin medication
