  1. Products I use: DHC Deep Cleansing Oil, Neutrogena Oil Free Acne Wash, Jojoba Oil, Dan's BP Gel, Oil of Olay Complete SPF15 Moisturizer for Sensitive Skin. My skin produces a lot of oil, but my skin gets easily irritated/dry which result in clogged, inflamed pores. This regimen helps me to treat my acne while keeping my skin moisturized and protected from dryness. Every morning I cleanse my face with Neutrogena Oil Free Acne Wash in the shower. Post showering I do not dry my face with a towel,
  2. Wow, I totally hated getting facials. I felt like I was being physically punished for helplessly having bad skin. haha ... it's funny when I think about all those emotions I felt while undergoing extractions.
  3. I found this great tip in a recent magazine article. Instead of drying your hair with a towel, wrapping it with an old tshirt will keep your hair smooth and frizz free. It works! Now I understand why my aunt sleeps with a silk scarf wrapped around her hair. Smooth fabric definitely helps keep your cuticles down and lock in the moisture.
  4. Your skin should be fine. If anything, it should get better from swimming. Why? Because as you swim, you will perspire and the perspiration will automatically be cleansed by the pool water. Whereas you will more likely break out from running where you can't wash off the sweat right away. However, you should always shower after any intense workout to maintain clean skin.
  5. i had an allergic reaction to this mask. test it out on a small patch of skin before going with a whole mask.
  6. No make up is the best make up for acne. I highly doubt anyone's skin will clear up completely if you use make up on active acne. In fact, make up looks horrible on people with severe acne. If your acne is minimal, then it's okay. Otherwise, refrain from it if it's heavy acne.
  7. Well, just make sure you do not use hot water but just warm/tepid water. This should decrease the drying effect you receive on your skin. I use a deep cleaning oil (dhc) to deep clean my pores, and it does not dry my skin at all. As long as you wash it off with warm (not hot) water, it should leave your skin clean and soft.
  8. I have a couple of those on my back, near my shoulders. I've had them for at least a year or two, and they fluctuate in size (constantly). My doctor told me it'll go away ... "eventually." I noticed that it grows if I touch it or pick at it. When I leave it alone for a relatively long time, it shrinks. Just don't touch it, AT ALL. Always apply sunscreen if that area is exposed to the sun. If you feel pain or discomfort from those marks, then definitely get an examination from your dermatologist.
  9. I never wear makeup when I go out. I don't like how it feels on my skin and I hate worrying so much about how I look. All I want is clear, clean skin, and makeup sure isn't going to help at all. Occasionally I'll wear makeup, but usually for special occasions or just for the heck of it.
  10. I am pretty positive that I am experiencing this same situation right now. My whole face blew up after using this particular makeup brush, and I have the same symptoms as yours. Also, I have eczema on other parts of my body .... so I wouldn't be too surprised if that's the case for my face. I've had my face inflamed like this before ... so I know it'll go away within a few weeks. =|
  11. tigress, have you tried other mineral makeup and had the same problem? I know there was someone on here that got tiny red bumps too and everyone thought maybe she was allergic to something in the makeup. Most people don't break out, but you could really be allergic or irritated by something used in mineral makeup. I hope it clears up soon, sounds frustrating.
  12. I tried Aubrey Nicole for the first time today. By the end of my night, my face was covered in tiny red bumps (some pus filled) ... in other words ... irritation.
  13. Baking soda. Just add enough water to make the baking soda into a paste, and gentle massage it over your face for a minute or two. Rinse with lukewarm water, and your face will feel like a baby's bottom.
  14. After reading about the excellent reviews and recommendations on the aspirin mask, I had decided to give it a try. I made a paste out of a few aspirin pills and water and applied it to my face for about 10 minutes a couple days a week ... and my face started to break out in ways it had NEVER broken out before. At first I thought it was normal, because a lot of people mentioned how their zits would go through a purging process. However, my skin started to get worse and worse each day. I never exp
