  1. So I'm pretty sure that most of what is on my face is scarring and have realized that my acne is moderate. I just don't know what I should do first... try to cure my acne first or try to find a good way to treat acne scarring? I've tried many over the counter products and and it either irritated my skin or never showed improvement. I can see that if my acne wasn't covering my skin, I would be glowing! I've never not had acne and I don't remember what it's like to have clear skin. If I could have

  4. http://www.cosmeticsdatabase.com/ Type in the kind of make up you're using right now and see if it's safe or not! It also lists the ingredients. It's really a must to check this website out!!!
  5. Well, you can check out: http://www.cosmeticsdatabase.com/brand.php?brand_id=4332 It shows the ingredients the company uses. You can also use this website to check out any make up to see if it's safe or not. The make up I suggested is almost close to perfect.
  6. My mom sent me a link to a place where they sell healthy make up and their foundation even includes Jojoba oil. I know it's somewhat pricey but I think they have great benefits. http://www.nimli.com/items_1565.html Just thought I would let people know! Tell me what you think.
  7. I love bare minerals! Not using it right now, but definitely would recommend it.
  8. If you have a higher percentage of BP, does that necessarily mean that it'll work better for your skin? I just started using a 10% BP cream at night and a 2% BP night gel seemed to have worked better for me...
  9. I just read somewhere that tap water was the major cause of acne. Just google it and there will be results haha. Do you think this could be true though? If we just washed our faces with filtered water, our acne could clear up?

If you drink or wash your face with tap water, then you need to stop doing so. Studies have shown that tap water is causing acne. People always have assumed that the usage of unfil
  11. aw, I really appreciated that message, and I'm sure a bunch of others did too. It really is hard to have at least a little confidence sometimes but like you said, some people don't even realize it. I was complaining to my friend about how terrible my acne was and she said she barely noticed it and it wasn't as bad as I made it out to be. We're our worst critics so we just have to try to stay positive and hopeful.
  12. I just bought AcneFree Severe and the next day I formed three pimples near my mouth and one of the pimples on my forehead got worse. :/
  13. I tried posting links here but it shows up blank for some reason.
  14. I'm confused with what kind of acne I have and what products to really use. I've gotten a few opinions, but more would definitely help! hxxp://tinypic.com/view.php?pic=bi3x35&s=5 hxxp://tinypic.com/view.php?pic=33uealw&s=5 hxxp://tinypic.com/view.php?pic=2a5db7n&s=5 (replace x's with t's) Thanks!
