  1. How do you wash with milk of magnesia? Let it sit until it dries and then use water to remove it? What about the eye area? Do you use baking soda/ milk of magnesia there? What if the face becomes too dry, isn't a moisturizer necessary? What do you recomend? It's better to skip a few days of this regimen?
  2. Johnson's baby top to toe wash has the same ingredients as the ones above and it's the cheapest.
  3. Thank you for answering. If Sodium PCA has the ability to absorb and retain water, is there a chance that it could drain the water from the deeper layers of the skin, not just from the air? Does hyaluronic acid have the same effect? If this thing happens it is safe to use? And shouldn't the cream/toner containing Na-Pca/HA be sealed with an oil? Immediately? After how much time? Last but not least does oil applied on a wet skin moisturizes effectively?
  4. All oil will suffocate the skin, and eventually you will notice your pores start to clog creating a myriad of different types of acne. Jojoba oil DOES NOT moisturize the skin, it may feel moisturized but it isint, the only real moisturizer i found most effective is aloe vera moisturizer... it actually penetrates the skin unlike oil, oil just sits ontop of the skin and creates a suffocating barrier. *sigh* Jojoba oil is a carrier oil. It does indeed penetrate the skin. Adam, you are qu
  5. Does GC (and retinoids in general) makes wrinkles more proeminent before it diminishes them?
  6. Romey, have you ever tried to use other oil than rosehip seed oil with backing soda and noticed the same great results? I'm thinking to use sweet almond oil instead. Do you think it's ok?
  7. Wynne, could you please tell what sunscreen you're using? How about facial moisturizer? What do you think about Avene mineral sunscreen spf 50?

  8. Does anybody know if it's ok to use another oil than rosehip oil with baking soda?
  9. Purpose Facial Cleanser has the same ingredients as Clean & Clear Foaming Facial Cleanser, Sensitive and Johnson's baby head to toe baby wash; they are all made by the same company; the last one is the cheapest from the three cleansers.

  11. From every pore around my mouth and nose there is pinhead sebum (1-2mm) coming out, literally. I also have some whiteheads in the same area. I was following a regimen consisting of retin a alternating with glycolic acid cream for 8 months, and skinoren for the last 4months when I decided to stop every toppical I was using, because every pore on my face was still containing some sebum (verry little) I couldn't get rid of, and it was very noticeable when I wore foundation. Along with these clogged
