  1. Okay, so, I've had acne since I was 11. I've never been able to wear foundation without breaking out horribly. For Christmas this year, my brother bought me Bare Minerals, and I liked the coverage of the mineral foundation, but it still caused me to break out. When I ran out of BM, I decided to go to my favorite product site, etsy.com, and look for one that was cheaper and supported a small business. I found Ella Rose Minerals Acne Mineral Foundation and Midnight Magic. And I will never, eve
  2. Really? Is that the powder or the liquid? Definitely the powder. I've got a link to the website on my log, if you'd like to see it.
  3. I've started only using the acne free at nights, since it's so drying. I use the cleanser in the mornings though. My face is looking pretty good. I've got some scars to deal with. I've also got the two big ones on the side of my nose still yet. I've been working out pretty hard. 10 minutes of an aerobic video, walk for 30 minutes, and 20 situps. Today I went with my aunt on a hike and climbed a giant hill. I guess Dan's right in that exercise is a GREAT stress reliever. Also, I found an AWESO
  4. well, that's hardly fair at all! You think they would market it worldwide! well, do they have Loreal bare naturals mineral foundation (that's probably not the correct name, but you get my drift)? My aunt let me try some today, and I have to tell you, it didn't break me out, it's really light, it has SPF 19 AND it covered my acne REALLY well. Just thought I'd pass it on
  5. well, My skins still a little dry. I'm using aloe vera gel as a moisturizer right now. It's cleared up a LOT. That big pimple on my nose is not as painful and not as big. My blackheads are having trouble clearing up, I think that I'll use a biore strip for those suckers. I started the National Body Challenge on the Discovery Health website, so let's add exercise to my regimen, shall we. All in all, a good day.
  6. Really? That must suck. How do you manage to cover your red marks or do you grin and bear it? Oh, and thanks for commenting :) Usually, I just grin and bear it. I'll regret it the next day otherwise. And as far as moisturizers go, have you thought about that new Clean and Clear Soft? It's supposed to have sunblock and not clog pores. I'm thinking about getting me a bottle.

    The Real Erika

    just some photos to show how my skin's improving with certain methods, or the lack there of.
  8. day 8 Well, My skin is looks pretty good right now. Except for the sun burn, but it's fading quickly. It's a little dry. I've got to find a good moisturizer. Other than that, the only real problems I'm having is one HUGE zit on the side of my nose. The painful kind. I've got another smaller painful one on my left temple. Pictures....Natural light! Ugh! Note the flaky skin around my mouth. This is a problem. http://i256.photobucket.com/albums/hh177/e...rk/S6307467.jpg http://i256.photobucket.co
  9. hey! Thanks for replying on my regimen log. I'll post pics when I can, but I'm not sure if I'm having a set back or not right now. You know how it goes... As far as how much moisturizer to apply to prevent counteracting acne medicine, I've never quite figured that out. I've got to find some sunblock that won't clog pores now, as sun exposure has proven the enemy. And you're quite lucky that you can wear makeup without it making your acne worse. If I even put just powder on my face is broke ou
  10. Day 6? I'm having trouble keeping track. Well dangit. I seem to be stuck at this 20% mark, and a few big pimples have popped up, but seem to have shrank-but-won't go completely away. Also, this product has been pretty mild on my skin so far, but last night it itched and burned, and my face seems redder this morning. I think this is because I'm supposed to use sunscreen with it, and I did, but I used an SPF 15 and I spent a lot of time in the 78 degree weather yesterday. So, the weeks almost ove
  11. Day 3 Well, last night my face had a loooot of little pimples that were new, and they had all already come to a head. I resisted the temptation of squeezing them all, and put my stuff on for the night. This morning, my face has significantly improved. All the pimples I had are either a lot smaller or gone. My skin actually looks a lot healthier. It's smoother and softer. I noticed I'm not experiencing the dryness and redness with this kind of medication that I usually experience. Overall, I'd
  12. Well, It almost seems like my acne has gotten a little worse, but from the reviews I've read this is to be expected. The medicine has to pull all the acne to the surface to start working. I just found out my brother used this product and he's given it high reviews. He says it takes about a week to see real changes. I lost the battle with temptation and popped that annoying pimple under my nose. Other than that I'm trying my hardest to not touch my face. It's a hard habit to break. Day 2 http:/
