  1. In the mornings if I go out, I'll always use lotion to moisturize. However, when I come back home and wash my face, I'll substitute lotion with aloe instead...

I'm also an advocate of being gentle with your skin -- make sure that you're not overdrying it with the acne products and that you apply oil-free SPF 15 lotion everyday (I use Olay Sensitive Comple
  5. Hi everyone, About a year ago I was really experiencing the lowest point in my life -- as a Senior in college, I was graduating and facing the world with severe acne that never plagued me until then. My boyfriend had gotten me a facial package at Bliss Spa in New York (yes, one of those hip places in SoHo) for my birthday and the lady had irritated my face so much that my acne basically blossomed. I had a couple of pimples on my cheeks and forehead and I remember her deeply raking my face... I'
