  1. I think hormonal acne can only be remedied by addressing the problem with your hormones. You will not be able to find a topical treatment that will work for an internal problem. Even if you do, it won't last.
  2. A little upset. I deviated off my healthy lifestyle and have been eating a tad too much junk food! My face is angry at me for that, but I'm back on track now, so it should clear up soon.
  3. I feel great. I'm sticking with my healthy diet/lifestyle, and see the results daily (as my old acne dries up). Life is a gift and I need to remind myself everyday that there are people out there dying of serious ailments...acne won't kill me.
  4. I'm just starting out with an "anti-candida" diet. I found out that I have a yeast problem, so now my eyes are open and I'm not trying to feed the yeast at all. I agree with drinking more water. 4 to 8 glass is not enough, it should be 8+. You should notice a difference in your bowel movements when you increase your water intake.
  5. Don't forget about what you put IN your body. For some, acne is an outward manifestation of what is going on INSIDE your body. For me, when I start eating sugar, processed foods, and white-flour products, it shows up on my face.
  6. The only thing I can suggest is the pill. I take ortho tricyclen lo and it pretty much wiped out my jawline acne. When my acne does come back I try to deal with it by eating less sugar and carbs (white flower products). When I'm strict with my diet, it makes a difference. When I cheat (even a little bit) it shows up on my face.
  7. I'm 27 and have been dealing with my acne since I was 11. Who knew that I'd be plagued by this crap for so long! It is frustrating and I feel your pain. My acne clears up a bit, and then comes back with a vengence. Its like a never ending cycle! Right now my chin has decided that it hates me and I'm getting huge, inflamed bumps (almost like cystic acne) just on my chin. It is so frustrating!!!!
  8. Don't get me wrong, I STILL have acne, its just not as bad as it used to be. I know how it feels to have others comment on my skin - "is that a rash?" "are you using anything for your face?" "you should see a dermatologist" "wow, its getting worse" etc... but I refuse to let other people or acne kill my joy and steal any more of my life away.
  9. Reading your post saddens me. You are a beautiful and (apparently) talented woman, AND you have a man that loves you and wants to marry you. I do feel your pain (I was there before, trust me), but you have to get over it. Do not be ashamed of who you are because of what is on your skin. I felt like you a few years ago. I was so sick of my skin hindering me, that I just decided to focus on something else - my body and God. I found a church and became actively involved, and I also started
  10. I'll be in the USA next week so I'm going to look for Certain Dri PM...couldn't find it here. I did find Mitchum though!
  11. This happened to me, but I have eczema (pops up from time to time), so I attributed it to that. I realized that my hair products were irritating my neck and that is what triggered my eczema to flare up. I kept my hair off of my neck for about two weeks and used hydrocortisone cream every night and in the mornings. It cleared up in about two weeks and hasn't returned since. Now when I wear my hair down I just use less products.
  12. I use Secret, but I'm looking to kick it up a notch. Can you buy certain dri and mitchum in regular stores or do you ordem them online only?
  13. As others have said, some people have problems with soy milk. I didn't digest it too well and found myself bloated and having stomach cramps whenever I drank or ate soy products. When I do need "milk" I use rice milk.
  14. I'm 26 and people who don't work directly with me always think I'm a summer hire or an intern. I'm like no, I graduated from college 4 years ago and this is my real, full-time job. My friends used to tease me and say that I looked like I was in higschool...or a very mature 17yr old. I got so sick of it that I cut my hair so that I could look more mature. Well, I liked it at first, but boy did I miss my ponytail! I'm currently in the process of growing it back and I'm embracing my young-look
