  1. thanks! hey, i used to live in CA, too.

  2. I like your profile pic...truce....ah, if only it were so easy :/

  3. I think I noticed my pores getting larger around 21 or 22. I've been using retin-a 0.1% for about a year and it hasn't really helped much. I only apply it at night, and my skin is always oily when I wake up (which is odd because I normally have dry skin).

If you were to try this, make sure you use a good moisturizer as well. Whenever you use a product that dries your skin, you must
  7. I think that the dry weather makes people produce more oil to help moisturize the skin and since your skin doesn't exfoliate itself as well in the winter, this oil gets trapped, causing breakouts. I haven't worn wool in years, and I still have acne.
