  1. I just wanted to share my response to a message I received asking if I am compeltely clear now. The person who wrote to me was wondering if the Clean and Clear skin care kit I use is worth using. I cant speak for everyone and say it will work, but here is my response to the message and some info on the kit.... "Nice to hear you read my skincare log. I always wonder who reads what and I'm happy to offer any help or insight into any product I use. Currently my skin has no active pimples - knock o
  2. I use iPeriod on the iPhone. I think I paid 2$ for it or something. They have a menstrual cycle tracker (which I have to say is pretty accurate at predicting the day I'll get my period), ovulation tracker, fertilization tracker, etc... You can choose general things like the flow for the day and symptoms like: acne, anxiety, cramps, headaches, food cravings, tension, nausea, weight gain. All those things have a none, mild, medium, severe scale to plug in. You can also keep track of your weight an
  3. Wow. My last post was about six months ago. Ever since then I have changed a few things... 1. I haven't been working out as much as I was in the last few posts, due to a new job. However I HAVE been drinking a lot more water. I bring a ton of water bottles with me to work - which does cause me to have many a bathroom break, but I think it's really helping to flush out my skin. 2. I've been using Clean and Clear ADVANTAGE® 2-in-1 Acne & Mark Eraser Kit. I really like this. http://www.clean
  4. I stopped using the Alpha Beta Peel..It was $80 a pack and I think there were 30 pads. It just became expensive for me. I don't know how well they improved my acne (I think the Clean & Clear Acne Kit has been the help through this all), but I definitely saw a difference in the texture of my skin during the period I was using them. I used them every night. Something good to note was that my skin did not react negatively to the peel, so that's a plus. In the end, it is definitely a product I w
  5. It has been almost 7 months since I have last updated. A bit has changed... Currently I've been working out more - about 4-5 days a week. I have been drinking A LOT more water! As far as my regimen goes... Morning: -Clean & Clear Acne Control Exfoliating Cleanser *(This is new since the last time I've updated)* -Christian Dior Hydra Action Face Cream -Christian Dior Hydra Action Eye Cream -Clean & Clear Fast Clearing Spot Treatment (Part of the Advantage Acne Control Kit) Night: -Cl
  6. DAY 20 USING ALPHA BETA FACE PEEL I'm still very satisfied with the Alpha Beta face peel. It is a product I will be using for life. I also think it is keeping away breakouts (knock on wood). I wish more people would try it so we could compare results. Since the last time Ive updated I have had a pimple on chin. Nothing major, but it was there. Tiny... White head, but big enough to have a bump. I started picking at it and my skin became really red. After realizing I really shouldn't have picked
  7. How is the 'no picking' going? I picked at a little white head the other night on my chin and now the damn thing wont go away. Hope youre having better luck!
  8. DAY 10 USING ALPHA BETA FACE PEEL Normally I use the face peel at night, but last night in order to cut my regimen short and have some more free time with my boyfriend at nice I just washed my face quickly. This morning I felt a pimple coming under my skin...right in the crease of my chin. So after showering and washing my face this morning I used the peel. It is meant to be used in the AM, but I actually like it better at night...for a few reasons: -I didnt like the way my makeup went on afte
  9. I feel as though I havent updated in a while. Been busy. I'll update tomorrow with some new pictures to show my progress. Around the 13th my skin was breaking out a bit, but that pimple is all clear and my skin is so smooth. I actually think my marks are starting to fade. Slowly, but I think they are. Pictures tomorrow morning after another treatment of the Alpha Beta Peel tonight! Today I starting using Plus White 5 Minute whitening. You use it twice a day. It got really good reviews on drugs
  10. I'm glad the mineral veil is working for you! It really is nice to use at the end of your makeup routine. I like it a lot. I've heard that toothpaste could break people out - I always brush my teeth first and then wash my face. Definitely get a new makeup brush if you think it's rough. I think that can irritate the skin. A good brush cleaner is essential also. I use the MAC brush cleaner and it works pretty well. As far as makeup brush brands go I like the MAC brushes - they are very soft
  11. Hey, Thanks for replying! It's nice to get other people's input about products and even my own progress! Haha. The morning burst scrub is really great...it's gentle but still does the job of exfoliating well. I even find myself using it at night along with the Acne Control Cleanser because I feel as though it removes the makeup well. I do like the tingly sensation with Acne Control Cleanser..it really makes my skin feel fresh. However I only use it at night (and sometimes on certain areas on
  12. DAY 5 USING ALPHA BETA FACE PEEL Well it's Sunday morning here in New York. We just changed the clocks back an hour last night. I went to sleep rather late after a few drinks, which hopefully my skin will be forgiving of. I also have slacked off in the food department this weekend topping the charts with Wendys, Taco Bell and Cheesecake Factory. Despite being extremely tired last night I washed my face with my normal routine and did another treatment of the Alpha Beta Face Peel. Im slowly seei

  14. DAY 4 USING ALPHA BETA FACE PEEL This morning I woke up and though my red marks are still there, the texture of my skin has improved in very little time. I feel as though I have a doughy look to my skin and it actually glows. The pimple on my chin has improved and I'm happy with the results far. (Yesterday when I woke up the pimple on my chin popped with just a gentle touch - gross! Now it has dried up and hopefully with be gone within the next two days). As many people, I always want instant
  15. Any before and after pictures?
  16. Sounds like this is really working and you seem very excited in each post. Keep us updated.
  17. DAY 2 USING ALPHA BETA FACE PEEL Today I woke up and my face felt very smooth. Im wondering if the Alpha Beta Face Peel did anything. It is only the first treatment, but we'll see. These can be used daily and I was very tempted to do another treatment this morning, but I think it is best to wait until night time because I can use them after I clean off my makeup from the day. I like the idea of these pads catching any of the extra makeup and dirt my cleanser didn't reach. Pictures from this mo
  18. Alright, I have finally decided to start a log. Many times in the past I have taken pictures and then deleted them. Wrote about my skin routine, then deleted it. Here I will keep track of all the products I use and the results. Currently I'm using: Morning: -Clean & Clear Morning Burst Scrub -Christian Dior Hydra Action Face Cream -Christian Dior Hydra Action Eye Cream -Clean & Clear Fast Clearing Spot Treament (Part of the Advantage Acne Control Kit) Night: -Clean & Clear Acne Con
  19. Ive called the office and a consultation is $300. Is that absurd or normal? I dont know. I know he is known as a 'celebrity dermatologist'...do you guys think its worth it?
  20. This may sound silly but Ive heard that many celebrities use Dr. Dennis Gross for their skin care routine. One for example - who has unearthly beautiful skin is Olivia Palermo: Olivia Palermo Pic1 (Sorry I cant insert the picture for some reason) Olivia Palermo Pic2 "What's your favorite skin care brand? For all my skin care I go to my dermatologist Dr. Dennis Gross in New York. He does everything and is fantastic." "Olivia's beauty address book: Olivia visits Dr Dennis Gross every few month
  21. Thank you for all the input. I've been thinking and reading about loestrin and am petrified to go on this. So many people said this screwe up their skin more. I'm thinking of calling my gyno back tomorrow and asking to be put on OTC bc I've read the most positive reviews about it regarding acne. What do you all think?!
  22. So I just came back from the dr. I was prescribed loestrin 24. Unforuntately I can't find too much on it and whatever I have really isn't posiive as far as acne goes. Ugh. I'm so upset. I'm meant to start the pills in a week after my period but I'm wondering if I should go back to the dr and get a different prescription. Or should I just try it? Ughh helpppp!!!!
  23. I was just prescribed this today and am really upset. All I've read is horrible stories about it Anything else to share boardies? I guess I'll give it a try but idk. I guess I was hoping for OTC or something. How has this been working for kelkel?
  24. Well thats really encouraging and true for all meds as far as side effects go...unfortunately. Congrats on the great results! Any before and after pics? Im going to talk to the Dr. tomorrow (well technically later today seeing as its past 12AM)....sooo nervous!! Ill update after my doctor appt.
