    strong chemical peel?

    Be very careful with chemical peels because unlike lasers you can't control the depth of the peel very well and in a lot of cases do more harm than good. Lasers are better in my opinion because they are very precise and can be set to how deep you want them to go.
  2. I agree with CeraVe. I use the lotion and absolutely love it!

    Hormonal acne?

    I take Yaz birth control and spironolactone for my hormonal acne. Spironolactone is an anti-androgen blocking pill that suppresses that hormone since it can cause acne. It has been my miracle drug!

    Advice Needed!

    Instead of treating your face topically have you tried oral medication? I use spironolactone for my hormonal acne and it is the only thing that has ever worked for me. I went from severe acne to about one pimple a month usually around my period. It has been my life saver and unlike many antibiotics and accutane you can take it indefinitely. I will take it for the rest of my life if I can be pimple free! Ask your derm about and see if it would be right for you. Also, if you start something

    what kind of face wash do you use?

    I use Kinerase Gentle Daily Cleanser which I love! It is noncomedogenic and hypoallergenic. It is moisturizing too and does not strip your face. I get it at sephora and it's about thirty dollars but it is worth it.
  6. you should at least use a spf of 30 and they make sunscreen that is sweatproof and waterproof for up to a certain amount of time. Just make sure you reapply every once in a while and you should be good.

    ASPRIN MASKS WITH HONEY...

    I have added honey to my aspirin mask. It makes it easier to stick to your face. Also, it helps hydrate since the aspirin can be kinda drying. Once I crush the aspirin in a tiny bit of water I add just a little bit of honey and mix it all together. That's it!

    Lotion is it neccessary? Read on.

    This is too funny! I just replied on another post from "Spironolactone" about how spiro is such a great medication. Now I am seconding CeraVe too because I also use it! I love it also and it has the right amount of moisture without ever feeling greasy and has NEVER made me break out. Try it!

    Everyday Minerals Cult

    Just curious, I have recently jumped on the bandwagon of everyday minerals but I was wondering what brush people like best to apply the foundation. I ordered a kit with the flat top brush and I am sure it will work great I was just wondering what everybody else likes.

    Murad Clear Skin

    Different products work differently for different people. In my experience, Murad ruined my face for about 9 months even though I only used it for about 2 weeks and I am just now getting it somewhat back to normal. With all the negative comments about it I would try something different. I use proactiv and it works well for me but you have to find what works for you.

    The Ultimate Healer

    I just wanted to say that I am sorry so many people are so offended by this post. I wanted to say that with my personal experience God has had a powerful impact when it came to my acne. I would pray everyday, sometimes in tears because I was so frustrated, for Him to cure me and make me better. Although bad things happen, they always happen for a reason and sometimes God puts you in those situations to bring you closer to Him. I know that is exactly the case for me because I have been throug

    Cortizone Shot question

    I have had one once and went pretty well. They inject it straight into the pimple which makes the swelling disappear. Yeah it does hurt alittle bit but they are so worth it. Usually the cyst will be gone by that night or the next day. It's better than having a cyst that's been there for weeks.
