  1. The last few weeks my skin has been breaking out horribly, I was at a point where I wouldnt leave the house because of how it made me feel. Since I'm moving, I was clearing out the cupboards and came across this supplement I bought few months ago, but never got around using it. Its called zinc for acne, and it was super cheap, like $3-4 for 100 tabs. Main ingredients are vit A (1,000 IU), vit C (150 mg), vit E (50 IU), B6 (20 mg) and zinc ( 50 mg). I thought I'd give it a try for the hec
  2. I dont have severe acne, but my skin has gotten progressively worse over the last 2 years and I think theres an underlying medical issue. I think I may have PCOS based on the symptoms (hormonal breakouts, increase in upper lip hair, difficulty losing weight, abdominal pain). My main issue is that I dont have insurance since I'm in school and only work part time and I'm not sure who I should be seeing, dermatologist, endocrinologist or gynecologist? I went to a low cost clinic couple months
  3. I'm pretty bad at chosing the right shade and end up getting one thats too pale for my skin tone. My issue is that I have pretty bad dark circles under eyes. My skin tone is somewhat yellow-ish, I guess neutral, not really sure. Heres couple pics of me that I dug up, since I only have a handful, maybe someone can suggest which MAC shade is right for me? maybe something with yellowish tone to neutralize the darkness under eyes? pic1 pic 2 I know that ideally I should go to a MAC rep at the ma
  4. So its been a bit of a rollercoasted for me, but I think my skin is finally calming down, I've tried just about everything, but I kept thinking there was something lacking in my diet that kept my skin inflamed. I started taking primrose oil to help regulate hormones because I break out along the jawline, it helped to soften the skin but didnt seem to make much different in breakouts. I usually order fish oil, but this time decided to try Cod Liver Oil because Vit D and A difficiency can result
  5. I came across the reviews for this soap pretty randomly on google, so the next day I went to a healthfood store and got a $5 bar, I cant remember the name of it because I threw out the package, but it didnt have any additives in it and was dark brown in color. At first it dried out my skin a bit, but overtime it seemed to have calmed down and I later found out that the best soap to get is the raw unprocessed kind from Ghana, it seems to be more gentler, so I got a 1 lb of it from this site: shea
  6. I recently bought a juicer and am interesting in growing my own wheatgrass. But I have some questions: 1) What is the best place to get sproutable organic seeds? 2) Is it ok to grow it in a greenhouse? Also, if you have been drinking the juice for some time, have you noticed any changes in your skin? thanks
  7. my favorite is Racher Perry, peach and papaya gentle scrub, smells good and is very gentle compared to some other ones. I get it at health food store.
  8. After reading the reviews, I bought it to see if it would help to get my hormonal pimples under control and even out skin tone. This is my second week of using it and so far I'm not noticing any difference. I'm using level 6- once a day, no dryness, or peeling, but then again I have pretty oil skin. How long did you wait until you saw the results? what type of skin do you have and what level do you use? thanks
  9. No, I've been taking Inositol by itself for 3 months for my anxiety, but I just started taking Niacin couple days ago. Sorry for misunderstanding.
  10. I have a book called Prescription for Nutritional Healing, which can be found at any health food store, but heres what is says regarding Vitamin B3(Niacin, nicotinic acid, niacinamide) Vitamin B3 is needed for proper circulation and healthy skin. Its aids in the functioning of a nerveous system; in the metabolism of carbohydrates, fats and proteins; and in the production of hydrochloric acid for the digestive system. It is involved iin the normal secretion of bile and stomach fluids, and it in
  11. I love your screen name! Haha, it cracked me up. :)

  12. I'm giving this a try, just started on Sunday, so this is my second day. My skin broke out really bad because of my period and now all of those have subsided. The skin appears to be calming down and feels smoother, except one angry zit on my left cheek. I'm taking 250 mg in the morning and 250 at night. Its timed release formula, so I dont feel any flushing. I'm going to start green cream as well to see if it helps out with discoloration from previous scarring, hopefully it wont get in the wa
  13. The only thing that works for my super oily skin is a primer, my favorite is Model Co Face Base, its not cheap, but not the most expensive either. But a lot of people had success with Monistat chafing relief powder-gel, I use about quarter size to apply to clean skin, wait about 3-5 mins, then apply regular makeup.
  14. thanks, I ordered a free sample kit with a closer matching base color, so we'll see how it works. I noticed a lot of people put ton of stuff on their face, like powder, then liquid foundation over it. But I hate that slick heavy feel of makeup and have cut back to where I only use some powder, eyeliner and mascara now.
