  1. Hiya, I get pretty much the same thing, my acne always flares up around that time of the month. My skin also gets really really oily. What I suggest is to pay special attention around that week or so. I usually wash my face in the morning and evening and then apply any products apringly twice a day. What I also do is splash my face with cold water if it feels 'dirty'. I find that it really closes up your pores. I hope that helps!! PS: I try to watch my diet, try not eat fatty and greasy foods.
  2. So after all of my pimples went away ( except for the couple that pop up now and then ) I am pretty much acne free (yay!). But instead of zits i now have red irritated skin on my chin and around my mouth. It feels kind of like really dry skin but it isn't dry, i have naturally oily skin. I have tried using moisturizer on it because in the beginning i thought it was just dry skin but I began breaking out after a couple days so I stopped. Does anyone have any suggestions?? My cheeks are also reall
  3. Hello! So in the past few months I have cleared up all of my acne, gotten rid of my oily skin, and have minimized my breakouts. I have been using 5% Benzoyl Peroxide and a dead sea face wash, as well as Vitamins A and D. I also take an antioxidant blend twice a day. I have noticed that after my acne cleared up I was left with red marks on my chin, cheeks, and near the eyebrows. I also have VERY large pores on my cheeks and nose. Does anyone have any suggestions?? THANK YOU!
  4. I used Bare Minerals makeup (foundation, bronzer, and the clear powder). After a while it would make my skin really, really itchy (a problem i wouldnt run into with any other foundation). I also developed little pimples on my cheeks and forehead (kind of like a rash). So yeah, it kinda did make me break out!!
  5. Okay so, I have mild breakouts, usually 5-10 zits a month (depends on stres level and such). For my birthday I got i.d. bareMinerals makeup. I got a kit which included the foundation, bronzer, and finishing powder. I used it but I really , really didnt like it. I didnt break out, but the coverage just wasnt that great, you could still see all my zits (they're usually red, and really stand out, i also have pretty large pores around my nose). I used to use an Estee Lauder foundation but the fragra
  6. I used Yasmin for almost a year, and now ive been off of it for 3 months or so, and I don't see ANY difference. So I don't really reccomend it, I just found that it got a little better. The acne never went away. It really sucked.
  7. I am a teenager myself and personally, I probably wouldn't mind if my mother offered me some help with my face. I would just bring up the subject really gently and if he responds well then you can convince him to take the accutane or whatever else you want. If he doesnt respond that well then tell him that you want to help. You should consider his personality when telling him. Just consider that in the future it may really help him. I hope that kind of helps. I wish you the best of luck!
  8. I've been thinking about waxing but I don't tolerate pain well... and I don't know where to get a waxing kit I've tried waxing for the legs and to be honest, it is not that great. I have the exact same problem with the hair on my legs. Right after you shave your legs try putting lotion on them. I do this, and it keeps them smooth and soft for at least 4 more hours. Haha. But yeah, I dont recommend wazing epecially if you have low pain tolerance. I tolerate pain really well and I can't do it
  9. I sleep 12 hours since I am on my summer break and I feel more tired then I was when i got 7-9 hours of sleep. And nothing has changed either.
  10. I have really oily skin, so I have my own mask recipe. LOL. I use oatmeal, mixed with water, then i drain the water and mix in some honey and buttermilk. I let it stand for 10-15 minutes until its a little stiff. Then I place it on my face and leave it on for 15 minutes. It dries out your skin REALLY well and gives you a great healthy glow! I heard that lemon with honey is really good too...but I have no idea. Ive also heard about Urine Therapy which is like....the best thing possible. But th

  12. I would be careful not to scrub at first. Just try washing your face with it and see how your skin reacts. My suffer breakouts because I have really sensitive skin. So try with small amounts at first, and if you see improvement try using more.
  13. I have recently done some research on this topic. Urine Therapy is used for many things like wounds, burns, ashtma, and even cancer. And there is no harm in trying it! So, you want to make your urine as clean as possible, so be sure to drink a lot of water and keep up a good diet. You don't want to use your morning urine because this urine has the most waste, so I would probably do it before you go to bed (when you don't see people either ). Also, urinate a little bit into the toilet and catc
