  1. I know alot how this feels. I used to wear way too much makeup. Kids used to laugh at me behind my back, and always comment on how much I wore. Honestly, i was uncomfortable either way. I knew i wore too much makeup, but i also knew my acne was really bad. I just felt like either way i was ugly, and either pimples were cacked on, or the makeup was. So i am sure she knows, and in time she will realize a better way to cover it up.

  2. My skins biggest issue is the red marks they leave behind. My skin breaks out, but the marks last for a long time, much longer than the pimple itself. Is it possible my skin heals slow? I know a lot of people's skin heals differently, and I am curious if there is a reason for that.. If anyone knows what may speed healing process, or possible lessen the red please let me know!

  3. the rollercoaster effect may be caused by your fluctuating omega 6 to omega 3 fat ratio.it is suggested that a ratio of 1:1 can help treat many diseases especially inflammatory diseases like acne. you would do this by taking fish oil. im am having alot of luck with it and have been on it for almost two weeks.

    to achieve a 1:1 balance first find out how many omega 6 you consume in a day in grams, so 1000mg=a gram , look them up at nutrition data.com

    then suppose you consume 6 grams of omega 6 average from day to day, you would then match your omega 6 intake with 6 grams of omega 3 from fish oil, therefore achieving a 1:1 ratio.It is ok to actually take a little more fish oil in relation to omega 6 just to make sure you hit the 1:1 ratio.

    also check out the fish oil threads in the diet holistic section.

    and just to let you know there is a ton of science behind this so this is not some crazy thing just made up to waste your time

    Polyunsaturated fatty acid regulation of gene expression.Sampath H, Ntambi JM.

    Department of Nutritional Sciences, University of Wisconsin, Madison, WI 53706, USA.

    Polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs), specifically the n-3 series, have been implicated in the prevention of various human diseases, including obesity, diabetes, coronary heart disease and stroke, and inflammatoryand neurologic diseases. PUFAs function mainly by altering membrane lipid composition, cellular metabolism, signal transduction, and regulation of gene expression. PUFAs regulate the expression of genesin various tissues, including the liver, heart, adipose tissue, and brain. The role of transcription factors such as SREBP1c and nuclear receptors such as PPAR-alpha, HNF-4alpha, and LXRalpha in mediating the nuclear effects of PUFAs are addressed.

    hey thanks a lot ill give it a go

  4. So i am an 18 year old girl, and i have been suffering from acne since i was 10. Of course it has gotten progressivly worse and better through-out the years. Its in a constant roller coaster. Over the summer i was completely fine. Sophmore year and freshman year i was a disaster. I can say i haev tried all prescription types.. well affordable ones. I have never tried accutane, but my mom is dead set against it. Which ultimatly i understand.So i was wondering if anyone knows of any home remedies that worked like charms for them. Maybe another route will do me more justice than the hundreds of dollars we have spent medically.
