  1. DAY 1. Wash face with Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wzsh Pink Grapefruit foaming scrub. You can also use St. Ives Gentle Smoothing Oatmeal Scrub & Mask beforehand to open up the pores. (Othergreat face washes which are more expensive are Neostrata Foaming Glycolic Wash and Glyderm Gentle Face Cleanser) 2.Witch Hazel Toner 3. Stridex sensitive acne medication pads 4. Neutrogena Rapid Clear Stubborn Acne (10% benzoyl peroxide) all over the face Night 1. Sam
  2. I have very sensitive skin (probably from using retinoids all the time) and I was wondering if anyone knows a way to lessen the pain from a chemical peel? I have a low percentage lidocaine solution but since it's in a cream form and hard to wash off I dont want there to be a chemical reaction with the peel.
  3. TCA cross with 50% was a big mistake, it made things worse. It deepened my scars. I'm definitely not a candidate for subcission. I did mini microneedling sessions and by mini I mean not going too deep. 1mm-1.5mm is the deepest I've gone. So far I've done 3 sessions 5 minutes each check over the affected area on fast speed with the derminator. These are the results. I will probably continue with the microneedling and I will finish with chemical peels.
  4. Has anyone read about gluten's effect on acne or experienced changes in skin condition themselves?
  5. This is the starting point. I'm seeing a professional in about a week to start treatment. The clinic performs laser treatments and chemical peels- I don't think they do microneedling or tca. What type of treatment do you think I need?
  6. TCA cross is an extremely aggressive treatment that only a doctor should recommend. You can see improvement with regular microneedling sessions once a month.
  7. That's what I am doing for the most part (dairy free, no gluten, no sugar, no fruit, low carb, caffeine free, etc.) and I got clear too.... I've noticed, that gluten or sugar in very small quantities is safe. For example, 1-2 tablespoons of sugar won't break me up, or if I have a piece or two of gluten-free bread. I get acne when I have gluten and sugar in big quantities, for example when I consume a lot of fruits, or if I eat regular bread. Dairy always breaks me up, even in small quantities,
  8. I knew all about it except that it healed skin. I did notice however that once I upped my water intake, I started eating less, like twice a day, and my skin got clear.
  9. I posted my 1st post in this same section in the forum and it's called "finally cured" I also don't eat any sugars, including fruit and no gluten. I eat only berries because they are low GI and sometimes granny smith apples. So I'm in the same boat as you....and I don't find it strange anymore that certain foods break me out.... Yes, it was not cool of nature to make me break out from good healthy products like whole wheat and fruits, but it is what it is.
