  1. Thank you Too bad you are allergic. I am allergic to BP. It gives me big red swollen frog eyes. It is really gross. I got my peel from skinlaboratory.com. I noticed they have a lactic acid one too.
  2. I noticed too that since battling acne I can tend to scrutinize my skin. I was looking closely at the faces of a group of people I was with last night, and almost everyone has some sort of discoloration or other issues. No one is up in our face looking for every little mark so we might try to stop doing that to ourselves.
  3. I did a 20% salicylic acid peel 4 times this week. The first time I put it on, it was really tingly and uncomfortable. It felt like severely dry skin x 10. I left it on for about 2 minutes. The next day I did it again and it wasn't as bad, I left it on for close to 10 minutes. A couple of days later I left it on for 20 minutes and didn't feel much. The day after that I left it on for an hour or two and barely felt anything. This is a gentler peel. My skin did not actually peel but it did
  4. You said you'd tried peels before? Had you tried a salicylic acid peel? That's what I'm using now and it is really working for me. I love it. I have recorded my progress in my gallery. Now that my skin is clear I can see a lot of mild scarring so I'll have to do something about that. I'm thinking about doing something like maybe lactic acid. Has it helped your scarring? This is a pic of me today. I have done the salicylic peel 4 times.
  5. Have you tried a salicylic acid peel? I too tried everything and am finally having luck with this. I am using 20%. I posted results to my gallery just now, so they should be up as soon as they are approved. I thought salicylic acid didn't work for me because I had tried a bunch of products with this ingredient, but the peel has a much higher percentage.
  6. I did that and it didn't work for me. It was kind of depressing. I do think my skin got worse. I haven't had any luck with dietary except being careful not to get greasy food on my face.
  7. Right now I am using Kiehls brightening mask and it is really helping with redness and dryness. You can see some pics on my gallery. I've always loved Almay lasting for the coverage and staying power, but mineral makeup should work nicely if you moisturize enough.
  8. I am reviving this old topic to comment that I am trying a new treatment. I am using Fungicure soap on my face twice a day. I have photos posted in my gallery.
  9. I've tried a lot of stuff and ortho is the only thing that worked for me.
  10. I use Crystal Body Deodorant stick, I like it. You need to apply twice a day if you need a lot of protection. Sometimes over that I use a natural deodorant with grapefruit seed extract. You can find lots of natural deodorants online. Some are terrible and some are ok.
  11. Okay, just researched BHA - and apparently that is salicylic acid. I've tried this several times without results. In fact, the murad program I just tried was based on this. I have seen a derm twice. The first gave me antibiotics which cleared me for a couple of months. After that he didn't change my program even though I got worse. I was just a kid, though - so I didn't push the issue. He should have done better for me. My second time I visited a derm for my scalp and he said I have psor
  12. have you thought about exfoliating gently, daily? This could probably help with them..
  13. I've been googling diet related acne lately and I've had a hard time finding any research. Does anyone have links for real scientific studies involving diet and any kind of acne? Even allergic reactions.
  14. does it leave icepick scars? i had like one the other day, feels like a scab, so i eventually started picking at it and the result was a lil ball of dried wax i guess? left a lil hole but eventually closed up. I was askin about this as well in a diff thread, i wanna prevent these ><
