  1. hey all, just a little fyi ... i am not putting down the dove, obviously everyone loves it. however. be aware that often your derm is recommending something b/c that company came to her office, gave her samples, and paid her to recommend it. seriously. just like drug reps. so you can't always trust dermatologists. i actually have a friend who is a salesperson who goes to derm's offices and sells... anyway. do your research.
  2. who has had this done? what are the results? how long are you red for? thanks.
  3. that is just plain stupid. maybe when you wank off you sweat and then don't wash your face immediately so you clog your pores. why don't you try washing your face after you pleasure yourself. and stop stressing over it - you're probably causing the acne by worrying that your jerking off will break you out. they taught that crap in bible school when masturbation was still a "sin" - it's not true. plain and simple.

  7. my derm's smoothbeam laser broke so i am getting clearlight treatment but w/ a 1 hr long peel called "levulen" ... i did a search w/ that spelling and came up w/ nothing. apparently it will leave me pink for a few days and very photosensitive, but the levulen helps the clearlight penetrate and therefore is good for both scars AND active acne. anyone have ANY info on this?? thx

  9. i want to recommend a book to all of you - it's called _don't go to the cosmetics counter without me_ and it's by paula begoun. (she's the one who started paula's choice brand) she reviews almost every single cosmetic, toner, cleanser, etc under the sun and also explains different ingredients and terms. for instance: "dermatologist recommended" means absolutely NOTHING! the fda has no regulations on what these terms have to mean, so "derm recommended" could mean that a dermatologist who is

    oh honey, you are so gorgeous!! i know you feel insecure but you don't need to be! maybe that is roseacea?? (ok that's the wrong spelling, i apologize)
  11. maybe ask your derm about different laser treatments that work to even your skin tone. good luck!
  12. topamax isn't an antidepressant, it's a an anticonvulsant. i have been on: zoloft, wellbutrin, effexor and celexa and none made any difference on my skin whatsoever. everyone is different though, ask your doctor if he/she has ever seen it...
