  1. Good luck, I will be anxiously waiting for your positive results!
  2. Hey All so I wanted to start recording my progress. Since my previous post my skin got so much worse, I blame it on the new Pill I started taking a month ago called Ortho-Cept. I relate my acne to being hormonal and initial cause from using comedogenic cosmetics. So today, I have whiteheads, blackheads about 4 small papules on the left side of my face and 1 large papule (cheek area) that just started going down. The right side of my face is pretty much clear except for whiteheads and 2 papules
  3. Rubber Duck it looks like you haven't been online for quite some time. A little discouraging to me because you are the first that actually kept a log of this particular birth control. I started about 1 1/2 months ago and I am definitely getting the purge from it. Ironically, about 4 months after I started taking Yaz I broke out horribly and I was perfectly clear before then. This is why I decided to get back on birth control and was prescribed ortho-cept because of the health hazards from taking
  4. wait...good lord your skin is flawless! Do you even have any acne/red marks? Can you show us a picture without your makeup on?
  5. Hi Kim! I am also Korean. Does the light really match and blend into your skin? I am really interested in buying this.
  6. I just want to note that the Estee' Lauder Double Wear foundation/powder broke out my two best friends. They had perfect skin prior. Are you having this problem?
  7. I'm sorry you are going through this. I recently just started having bad breakouts also and I was clear 3 months ago . But I will say this since my regimen I have been improving significantly. Since you have manuka honey already try adding 100% organic cinammon powder to it and spot treat over night. My 3 nodules/cysts have since then dried up and don't hurt anymore. I am just patiently waiting for them to go away. Although there will be scarring at least I can cover the red marks with makeup .
  8. Your skin is probably just irritated from all of the medication. Try a soothing mask of yogurt, oatmeal and honey to calm the irritation.
  9. Yes, it is definitely an internal problem. Do you take any detox supplements to clean your blood, liver, and keep your internals healthy? Make sure your hair doesn't touch your face. What face wash do you use? I would recommend Raw African Black Soap from Ghana to wash your face with. It will help remove some of the impurities in your skin after your workout. Make sure you are drinking lots of water! Your body loses a lot after a workout.
  10. Here is another option. It is definitely worth trying. Calamine lotion really does dry up pimples!
  11. Do you think your acne is hormonal? Also, I noticed you have long hair. Make sure to keep it out of your face and make sure to change your pillow cases/wash your hair free of product before you sleep.
  12. ah thanks for the help, could you suggest and moisturizer and a cleanser off www.boots.com? I would say for your moisturizer if you can only get it off that website: Boots Tea Tree and Witch Hazel Shine Control Moisturiser 4101405 or Olay Complete Care Daily Sensitive UV Cream SPF15 50ml 4642457 & Clarins Gentle Foaming Cleanser for Combination/Oily Skin Types for cleanser. But in all honesty if you could I would recommend you trying Raw African Black Soap from Ghana for a face was
  13. WOW! You're skin has improved so much! I am so happy for you!
  14. It is actually not that many steps and quite simple. I know it seems like a lot. You can find pretty much everything at your local Whole Foods, I am not sure where you live but whole foods is pretty popular on the west coast and carries a lot of organic food/produce. It is like a healthy grocery store. These are what you can find there: Dr. Bronner's Tea Tree Soap (liquid) Emu Oil (moisturizer PM) Manuka Honey (spot treatment/mask) Lavender Oil 100% Organic Bragg's Apple Cider Vine
  15. Even Better Foundation by Clinique is renowned for breaking people out. I can't see myself changing from Acne Solutions Foundation - it's brilliant. I'm waiting to hear back from Clinique after posting off the rest of my 3 step regimen. Hopefully I'll get a full refund! What do you think of MAC makeup? I've heard it's great for coverage but breaks people out. Ick I wish I would of researched that earlier. I just thought that all clinique was derm tested and non comedogenic. Oh well n
