  1. Hmmmm....sounds almost like a sunburn. When you have a sunburn on your face, it will do just about the same thing. Do you use AHAs or anything else that might make your skin overly sensitive to the sun? W + S
  2. I use AlphaHydrox Enhanced Lotion (10%). Works great for me!
  3. It's my understanding (and keep in mind I'm not a psychiatrist) that people who cut themselves are not necessarily seeking attention. They cut themselves because that will focus themselves on physical pain rather than emotional anguish. Your friend needs professional help. Really.....try to get him to see a counselor. Good luck, W+S
  4. Laser therapy.....oh....probably not unless you actually were married!
  5. If I were married to one, I'd better get free products out of it! Sometimes doctors will give you free samples that they have received from drug company sales people. You should ask if there are any free samples you can have next time you go....
  6. Your skin really has improved! I can't believe it because I finally see someone else who gets the spots right on the edge of the lips.....I thought I was the only one.... Good luck with accutane if you get on that regimen! W+S
  7. You definitely get less "bang for your buck" with Neutrogena OTS, but I use it because I can simply pick it up at the local druggist's or at the market. Plus, it seems to work fine for me.
  8. Yeah....same here. At the moment, the right cheek is worse than the left. I think it's 'cause I sleep on my stomach and sometimes I face left and sometimes I face right ... wait ....that didn't make any sense at all. Well, I think you get what I mean.
  9. Keep in mind.....these people are only there for one thing...to sell you product! They will say anything they think will make you take the time to listen to their pitch. That way, they have a better chance of selling you whatever "miracle product" they are selling....
  10. Ohh......I know how you feel I try to tell you skin (like talking to it is going to help) "either pimples or wrinkles, but both is just not fair!!!!" I am having some luck and improvement with a 10% AHA lotion, though. Any retinoid or AHA, BHA product might help! Good luck, W+S
  11. Two of my favorite musicians are brothers (Roy and Victor Wooten) who perform with Bela Fleck. I read in an interview that their mother used to tell them that when they look in the mirror every morning "Remember...you will not meet a single person today who is worth more than the man you are looking at right now." Those are powerful words and worth keeping in mind! W+S
  12. I use a 10% AHA both morning and night (mixed with a drop or two of Jojoba oil). This seems to work for me, but I think a lot of people use it at night only....AHA's help your skin exfoliate overnight so that when you wash your face in the mornings, fresh, new skin will be revealed. This has helped my red marks noticeably fade!!! Good luck! W+S
