  1. Come to West Virgina, I 'm sure you and your cousin will be welcome here. Keep mostly to the southern half of the state, try Bluefield. No really Slience of the Lambs did more for WV then that Wrong Trun movie.
  2. I was wondering was the aloe vera gel from fruit of the earth the clear kind or the green kind.? And was it in a tube or a bottle?
  3. Don't use it. I tried it one winter it made by skin really bad. It has some bad pore clogging ingerdients in it. And I read in a home remedy book that because it has a lager amout of water in it, the lotion evaporates quickly drying your skin.
  4. I would like to see how many ladies have had problems with BCPs. I think ortho tri-cyclen may have caused me to breakout too plus I think it caused my skin to become super sensitive (I can't use most hair conditioners, mosituizers, latex anything). I also have had changes in my mood, fine one minute crying the next. What are BCPs suppose to do for your skin any way.
  5. Does anyone know anything about cetaphil lotion. Not the one with SPF in it that stuff burns my skin. Most oil free lotions don't work well for me, but I am afraid this will clog my pores.
  6. Does anyone with dry skin use the Neutrogena SPF 15 moistuerizer? I am using Diffiren right now and am on my great search for a good moistuerizer. I like the neutrogena stuff but am not sure it is enough.
  7. I may take several weeks for that stuff to work toally. Before my skin got really bad I used the Neutrogena clear pore and liked it but it took at least 3 weeks to get rid of a blackhead and you will breadout with it in the beginging. If your skin isn't too bad then I say stick with it.
  8. I am not on the regimen it did not seem to do much for my skin. Right now I have almost no iflamntory acne just blackheads. How do you get rid of these things? Right now I am on diffrin which I think I have had fairly good results with, but I am wondering if the diffren is bringing all these blackheads up to the surfface of my skin and I should just let it work or what. Anyone know how long it takes for you to be able to see a blackhead or how long they take to form?
  9. I would just like to know what everyones favorite cleanser and/or moistureizer is.
  10. I would like to know what everyones favorite moisturizer is.
  11. I disagree with the comment about differin. I think it depends on what type of acne you have what will work for you. Bp did nothing for me, but differin worked very well in a short amout of time. I think if you really are upset about your acne you should see a derm to find out what problem is really causing you to break out.
  12. Finally someone with the same problem as me. I almost never get the pimples with the pus in them. I think I get those things (I call them clogged pores) because my skin is dryand flaky and that skin gets trapped in my pores. Bp did nothing for them. I was put on differin and it worked wonders, until I moved and it irritated my skin. I was staying with my family until the closing of my new house and was away from my humidifers. I am back on it now and I think it is working because I am brea
  13. I have some questions for anyone who has dry skin. 1. What type of cleanser do you use? 2. What kind of moistuerizer do you use? 3. What has worked best to clear your skin?
  14. Hey I used to come here alot before I moved , but anyways, I was put on differen which worked until it irritated my skin (cause I moved?). Now I can't really use anything on my skin, makes things worse. My skin is dry and flaky, the flakes cause problems (blackheads). Is it safe to exfoilate like 3 times a week (aha lotion drys me out)? And what would be a good scrub, and a good daily cleanser, and the best moisterizer? By the way I also take ortho-tri-cyclen.
  15. I know several of you have seen the zerozits website. Some of the moisturizers listed for the regieme are listed as pore clogging. Can someone tell me why these produts are said to be non comedogenic?
  16. Hey I am so sorry I forgot to send it. I just mailed it out today. Once again I am sorry.
  17. RevolutionIsMyName I'll send you out the last two tubes of bp.
  18. Hey I have been on these for about a month now. I am very pleased with the results of the Differin(I am using the gel). I don't use a lot of the CleocinT because it had a lot of alcohol in it and I already have dry skin. What I have been doing is using the Differin at night and the Cleocin T only on the breakouts. I mostly had clogged pores and blackheads and it really helped bring the stuff up to the surface of my skin. It does cause some breakouts in the begining of use but for me they d
  19. I am not on the regieme but was on it for awhile (now using differin) so I have some stuff that I don't want to go to waste. 3 tubs neutrogena bp 2.5% 2 bottles of eucerin aha lotion 1 bottle netrogena mosituerizer (I used a little not much) I even have some proactive (I used a little of it too, for anyone who wants to try it before they buy it) Send me your adderss and I will send it to you.
  20. Thank God I am not the only one who has used the neosporin and a band-aid over night thing.
  21. Has anyone ever tried Aveeno skin brightning Moisturizer or Aveeno Positively Radiant Saily Moisturizer? Did it even out your skin color? Did you have any problems with either one of them?
  22. I have been on Ortho tri-cyclen for about 2 and a half years but only for the birth control part of it. I don't think it did a thing for my skin and my derm said it was really a marketing ploy. As for the bloating part, how much water do you drink? Drinking 6-8 glasses a day should help.
  23. How can you tell if the moisturizer or what ever else you use is clogging your pores? I know you are suppose to look for noncomedogenic but like everything says that. So if your using some how can you tell and how long should it take before you know if it is pore clogging?
  24. BHA is beta hydroxy acid as in salicyic acid and AHA is alfa Hydroxy acid as in latic and glycolic
