  1. If all you want is birth control without side effects, I would recommend the mirena IUD which I love. I had it placed over a month ago without any sign of new acne nor any other hormonal side effect. I LOVE IT!!!! Look into it because for me it is great but we are all different inregards to how our body responds to things. Good luck!
  2. I'm 31 & very thin thanks to my life style. I do not eat 4 hours before going to bed, drink loads of water instead of sugar filled sodas & the first thing in my stomach in the morning is a cup of hot coffee which gets my intestines cleaned and speeds up my metabolism to start burning calories even before I eat breakfat. I do not diet, just have my regular 3 meals like everyone else but never have dinner after 6 pm. Believe me, once you get used to it, it's really no big deal because the
  3. SO far so good ladies! It's been about a week and my face feels good( feels tight and had small rolls of skin come off on three different occassions while washing my face). I know it's way too early to give an accurate review but I feel very plased as of now. No breakouts, not flaky dry skinbut still exfoliating. I know there's the A cream from the home shopping network but the price is higher with half the product. Yes, the A cream contains a bit more vitamin a which is very compatable with
  4. I've used the cream for 3 days mornings and nights with no sign of new spots. With that said, I also had some little rolls of dead skin come off when washing my face but doesn't tell me much. Will keep you guys updated. God bless!
  5. This is what the ingredients say: Retinyl Palmitate 300,000 I.U. per ounce, Distilled Water, Aloe Vera Gel, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Shea Butter, Evening Primose (oenothera biennis) Oil, Tocotieno, (natural super vitamin E), Isostearic Acid, Glyceryl Stearate, Lecithin, Glycerine, Allantoin, Sorbic Acid and Grape Seed Extract. Paraben free So what do you guys think now? I'll try it and will keep you updated.
  6. http://www.avmazon.com/Merchant2/merchant....amp;Screen=PROD Do you guys think this would be a good product to use at night? I've become sensitive to retin A after 10 yrs or so of use and want to stick with it in a milder form. Thanks to retin A cream, I look 20 at 31 and since I don't break out on the face but the lonely menstrual spot now, I decided to order a few days ago. Any advice?
  7. search for lycos.com then look for Inhouse pharmacy, they have 100 of the 20mg for $110 dollars(including the sending fee).
  8. Do any of you guys know how much accutane or other generic will cost in the phillipines? 20mg.
  9. I've been using it for the past 2 to 3 weeks because differin & clyndamicine got to the point where my face was like a dessert. I decided to try it and it actually works quite well, is giving me about the same results as differin but with a very moisturized skin. Is not a miracle but does work. Is kipping my acne to about 2 per week but those old red marks make me look like I have lots of active acne.
  10. OMG!!! YOu look just like me!!!! I'm twice your age but it's really shocking to see your face, is like looking at myself ten years ago. Your skin tone, eyecolor and everything, even the hair color!! I'll pm you a picture of me so you can have an idea of how you'll look 15 years from now.
  11. I also live in Japan-Osaka and I am so mad at the system here because they consider acne a cosmetic thing and there is not much help with dermatologists unless you go to a plastic surgeon and that's to treat scars after acne. I've seen several dermatologist and they only prescribe 50mg tetracycline for two weeks and a small water based ointment (58 US Dollars W/ health insurance). You have to keep going every 2 weeks because is illegal to prescribe for a month. I will soon be 30 years old so
  12. I remember a nurse telling my oldest brother the same thing about 10 years ago. She said she'd done this blood thing for many teenagers at the dermatologists office where she worked. According to her story, it was done by native indian people as a natural rejuvinating therapy as well as beautification thing for all kind of skin disorders. At the time we all called her crazy and didn't even believe her but who knows? It may be true after all. Oh, and my grandmother also believes that using your o
  13. Erythromicin is the only antibiotic being used during pregnancy & breastfeeding.
  14. Thanks! I'll just wait for my skin to adjust then. I love what differin is doing for my spots I was just concern about the dryness.
  15. I read on one of the differin pages that you can moisturize as long as is oil free and no peeling agents. Do you use the moisturizer after the differin or wait till the morning to do it? I use differin at night and clyndamicin in the morning with olay complete combination skin moisturizer but I'm very dry at night and itchy.
