  1. I have been on Spiro (50 mgs per day) for about 4-6 months and its been absolutely wonderful for my skin! (I'm also on Yaz bc) I've been getting blood tests every few months and the results have been fine. Just recently after my last test my doctor called and said that my potassium level was a bit above normal (which totally freaked me out because I've read what that can do to you). She stated that I should simply avoid bananas and dried fruit...but I've looked up a few websites and just about e
  2. I have another question: Does anyone know if Doxycyline can interfere with certain types of Birth Control pills? I guess I'm just freaked out about the term "low dose" birth control...please help!
  3. Thanks Mandy! I've been reading a few of your other posts and they have really given me some more hope that one of the two will work for me. At this point I think I'm leaning towards Yaz since it is the only one that is actually FDA approved for helping PMDD AND Acne...and the fact that I would be taking 3 more days of active pills makes me think that maybe they may help with my headaches too! I'll keep you posted! Thanks again!
  4. Hi Everyone, I recently went to my dermatologist who suggested that I switch my current BC pill (desogen) to either Yaz or Yasmin. I noticed on the websites of each that Yasmin has 21 active pills and Yaz has 24 active pills. I've read quite a bit on both and I'm really freaked out about the side effects! I have moderate acne...which definitely gets worse during the week of my period. I also get horrible headaches for that week that I'm on the placebo pills...aka the week of my period...to th
  5. LauraLee: How is is coming? The ACV for me has helped in all places except really for my chin and around my mouth....which is the place that breaks out the most for me when "that time of the month" rolls around for me. Otherwise my skin is acceptable during those other times. This is SO frustrating! My Regimen: I drink 2 tsp. of ACV Morning and Night. Sometimes I use Basis Face wash in the shower, but mostly I just use the ACV with a cotton ball to remove dirt and oil and then splash some on
  6. Andy you may want to try adding the ACV to something like Apple Juice when drinking it...it makes it go down ALOT better! and don't forget to drink with a straw! It will help prevent your teeth enamel from deteriorating faster!
  7. I have been using ACV for about 2 weeks now and at first it really seemed to help my skin..the red marks seemed to be fading and I had no other breakouts...I didn't use anything but the ACV (except when I wore mineral makeup and at the end of the night I have used Basis gentle skin cleanser to remove the makeup...then I put ACV on a cotton ball and wipe on my face). I have been drinking 2 tsp. of the ACV with Apple Juice every night and just a few days ago I broke out again...on my chin and one
  8. Hi Kel, I just read your log and I want to say that I'm sorry about your brother. I was on Accutane in High School (which was about 10 years ago) and it worked well for me then...but it definitely got worse before it got better...and that was so tough! I just want to say hang in there and remember that you are a beautiful girl! I know its hard to hear that from people that don't have acne but just try to remember that they are trying to help as best they can. I'm 26 now and I'm breaking out al
  9. This may be a long shot...but try applying Apple Cider Vinegar to your face twice a day...once in the morning and once and night..it may help to even out your skin's ph and help prevent that flair.... Good luck with the oral surgery!
  10. Scott and anyone else: I have been using ACV for about 2 weeks now and at first it really seemed to help my skin..the red marks seemed to be fading and I had no other breakouts...I didn't use anything but the ACV (except when I wore mineral makeup and at the end of the night I have used Basis gentle skin cleanser to remove the makeup...then I put ACV on a cotton ball and wipe on my face). I have been drinking 2 tsp. of the ACV with Apple Juice every night and just a few days ago I broke out aga
  11. This is just a heads up for anyone looking to wax....PLEASE be careful! http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,288860,00.html
  12. I agree with Opportunity...I bought it and I didn't like the way it felt on my face..and the color was way off...I returned it. I still use Almay makeup...its the new Almay Pure Blends Mineral Makeup..it comes in a pre-filled applicator brush...its so good!
  13. I really like Rimmel's Lycra Lash...separates and really builds well! Eye Liner: I don't really have a favorite...Wet and Wild seems to work well and when I really want it to stick I'll use Loreal Wet Liner.
  14. I currently use it and I really like the way it covers some of my scars...BUT...I tend to use their green concealer first just so I can make sure that I get the best possible coverage. Also...on days I just want to go with a very small amount of makeup, I use the new Almay Mineral Makeup (the one that comes in a pre-filled brush) Its great!
  15. Has anyone here mixed the 2 tsp of ACV with Apple Juice and then drank it? I've been doing that each night and I'm trying to work up to two times per day...but I gotta say...its not one of most pleasant things I've ever ingested. Its like drinking Apple Juice with quite a kick! I've heard people say it's not great for the enamel on your teeth either so it should be sipped through a straw..which sounds about right to me. My boyfriend is pretty much horrified that I'm drinking this stuff but at
