    Shaving Sensitive Skin

    Like many of you, I's sure, I have sensitive skin as well. I recommend the following article http://ezinearticles.com/?Shaving-Tips-for-Sensitive-Skin&id=7840199 If you have further information on this topic, I would be glad to hear about it.
  2. I am looking for a moisturizer to mix with the Regimen lotion. The regimen lotion works great but my skin is very dry so im running out of lotion way before the cleanser and the BP. I am also using jojoba oil from acne.org for added moisture. I have sensitive, acne prone skin (obviously) so looking for something very mild and unscented
  3. People can indefinitely develop allergies, and perhaps one of the allergies you have unknowingly developed is to an ingredient in your face wash or lotion? It could even be one of those impossible-to-pinpoint ingredients. :\ That's what I ruled when using a cleanser and moisturizer set from my allergist. This stuff works WONDERS.. it's called "Free & Clear" and it's the mildest thing you could ever use. So whether you're on the regimen or not, you should be using a mild cleanser with
  4. Hi, I have been using the kit for around 3 days now (and I'm loving it so far!) and I'm using the BP as recommended but I'm finding that my skin isn't over drying or becoming itchy etc so I'm wondering if it would be safe to/ recommended to increase the dosage/ frequency that I'm applying it to my skin? Thank you, Erika
  5. Hey guys! I really need to start using a different facial clenser. Does anybody know a good clenser for dry/sensitive acne prone skin?
  6. Hi guys, I have been suffering for acne around 5years .i was cured on a few occasions but I didn't take care of it, and it flared up again. Now my acne is finally under control except that my face feels dry and I will experience 1-2red bumps once in every two-three days and the red bumps don't even hurt and it will just disappear after a while or might grow into a pimple on some occasions. I have been using Hada labor super hyraulonic acid foaming cleanser and nuskin day gel in the morning and

    Cysts, photofacials, and scarring

    Greetings, I have been battling an extremely large and persistent cyst (acne). Also, I have other skin issues (minor) with eczema and dermatitis. For example, a few days ago I had an itchy allergic bump that responded well to hydrocortisone. About 10 days ago, I noticed I was developing two new cysts. One of them was deep and quite painful. The stress of final exams probably played a role in the development of my new cysts. Anyway, I felt extremely ambivalent about seeing the dermatologist for
  8. Oh.. my.. god. I have FINALLY found something that produces consistent results... I bought their acne treatment (that comes with a full size soap bar and samples of their moisturizers - all AMAZING) and am speechless. It has BP in it, so I was wary but after seeing their guarantee and plentiful reviews I felt great purchasing it. I'm wondering if anyone here has ever tried their stuff?? It was free 2-day shipping and all of their ingredients are pure and non-acnegenic. M
  9. I've been on the regimen for 3 months now with mixed results. At first, it really felt like it was working. My skin looked better everyday. Now, it seems to be declining. My acne is still better, most days, but the state of my face is so bad. So red, dry, itchy. My eyes swell up badly, then when the swelling goes down they remain very red, then they start peeling. I have no idea if this is an allergic reaction or what. I'm very careful to avoid the eye area during the regimen. I follow the regi

    Foundations for sensitive skin

    Hey everyone, I seem to have the MOST sensitive skin ever it gets red so easily, and every foundation I have used (I have used a lot!) seems to make me break out. My skin type now I think would be normal. It isn't too oily, or isn't too dry, just really sensitive! I am looking for foundation recommendations that will not break me out or irritate my skin! TIA, Julianne

    Update on regimen, allergies

    My skin has been really itchy and I've been getting hives on my back. My face is itchy but no hives there thank the Lord! The hives on my back are there mostly at night, I wake up with an itchy back lately. I know I'm allergic to a lot of things but I don't know everything that I am allergic too. I'm not sure what's causing the hives so I prayed and started eliminating scented stuff. I'm taking a few different allergies pills and using topical anti-itch products. Hopefully my doctor gets my refe

    Epiduo Week 2

    My experience with Epiduo is going well so far. Going into week 2 my face was really red and very sensitive to almost anything. I had to keep manually exfoliating my face with my fingers in the shower because of the peeling and how dry it became. Also it didn't matter how long I waited after washing my face, the epiduo burned after I applied it and continued to burn for about 20 minutes after application. As far as breakouts go, my face started breaking out more in week 2. I guess it is more
  13. Hey guys, so I was wondering if anyone could help me out, for about 3 years now I've had these weird bumps under my skin, it is rare that I will ever get a pimple that comes to a head, if I have a pimple it will only appear if I've been picking at my skin, touching it too much or wearing heavy or cheap makeup. These pimples will only turn red and have a soft bump underneath the skin and if I do try to squeeze it only a small amount of pus would come out (gross I know) Anyways, my face for the
  14. Hey guys, I attached a couple photos of where my acne is most bothersome right now. I used to break out all over my face, but after using Retin A, the scarring and breakouts went away and I somehow no longer even need to use Retin A; this I am extremely happy about, but I now break out over my chest and back and have been for quite a while. I started cooking all of my own food and essentially avoid all sources of processed glutamate as possible (basically no processed foods aside from the occa

    Sensitive Skin Issues

    So I have sensitive facial skin I discovered over the years after wondering why my facial cleansers caused my face to get super oily and my acne to get worse. I have moved on now to using the Aveeno Active Naturals Ultra-Calming Foaming Cleanser and a Earth Therapeutics Basics Complexion Pad with my nightly shower and a Neutrogena Naturals Nourishing Multi-Vitamin Night Cream to help my face out. My skin type is sensitive, but not dry or oily, my nose and forehead do get oily, not super oily, bu
  16. Hi, I'm from the UK. My skin had become very dry and flaky as a result of my cleanser and the night cream i use for my surface marks. Hence, I started to use Eucerin 5% Urea replenshing cream. However, slowly my skin has become less dry as a result of the moisturising, exfoliating more often and steaming my face once a week. Now the problem I have is that the application of the Eucerin cream causes my skin to look greasy after a while. Therefore, I wanted some advice on a moisturiser I should
  17. (I'm sorry for the silly, slightly absurd doodle on my pictures cause those pictures are taken just right after when i woke up so i dont want all of you to know how crappy i look lol. Click the photo for a better view.. only of you want to.... haha) Anyway hi! Im almost 16 years old living somewhere in Asia.. a lot of people are often mistaken that (all asians) have perfect skin.. idk. That's a hasty generalization, don't you think? I've been struggling (kind of) with mild to moderate acne for
  18. Hey guys, I am currently SOOO frustrated. Here is some background: I never used to have acne not even as a teenager, im talking not even one pimpleeee (knock on wood). I had a pretty bad diet in college and I STILL didnt break out. I never even thought about acne lol I used to be happy haha Anyway, I started law school this year and idk if it's the stress or what not, I BREAK OUT LIKE CRAZY on my cheeks and chin. like my skin is so bumpy and frustrated. It is dry and flaky and large pores. It
  19. Hello, I've had acne since I was 9 years old and I'm soon approaching 20. Currently, my acne is just mild and mainly consists of just small pimples, though I frequently breakout on the left and right-hand sides of my face and my forehead, and occasionally on my chin. I also have extremely sensitive skin which means I have to be cautious about what I use (for example, SLS/SLES makes my hands breakout in an itchy rash, so I don't want to risk using products containing them on my face). At the
  20. Hey everyone! I haven't posted on these boards much, but now that I've found something that controls my acne I wanted to share for others out there struggling with stubborn/long-term acne. I'm a 23 year old female. I have very sensitive oily/combination skin. I've had acne since I was 12 and I've tried a lot of different treatments through all the years including over the counter, prescription topical retinoids/benzol, birth control, anti-biotics and chemical peels. I've struggled with contro
  21. I am struggling hardcore with my skin, and at this point, I don't know what to do. I'm 19 and have had cystic acne for years, and have yet to find a skincare routine that works for me. My skin is fairly sensitive, but the acne is out of control. I am desperate for any advice on products that won't break the bank but will really help my skin's appearance. If you guys could *please* give me your best recommendations, I would be so appreciative. I don't have any products that I swear by; I'm lookin
  22. hey guys, I have cut back to only using some clindomyocin lotion on my stubborn cysts, which are mostly due to hormones. However, I have always battled really really dry skin, even before using any acne clearing products (which notoriously dry out the skin). I was looking for something that would mousturize me really well without breaking me out. I saw the new Neutrogena Hydro Boost line in a store the other day and wondered if you guys had tried it?? I think the one for 'very dry skin' tha

    Mid Week 3-Ish

    Its finals week- so I wanted to go ahead and post about what is going on this week a little earlier than at the end of the 3rd week mark... back- clearing (almost completely clear besides red marks and slowly fading bumps that you can't really see, but that I can feel on my back) face- cysts are clearing, SLOWLY. So slowly. The bp is helping (still only spot treating), but I'm still getting other bumps on my face (not as bad as the cysts), so it is still not 100% clear at all. Have been
  24. My acne is healed. I healed my skin with a combination of: Diet - I do not eat gluten, I avoid dairy products, lots of fruits and vegetables. I still enjoy my food and eat out on occasion. A few months of the caveman regimen (which allowed me to discover that my skin is extremely DRY and SENSITIVE not oily.) Stopping my skin picking habit (took a long time but I no longer touch my face or pick my skin.) The first and most important rule of my current acne routine is that it
  25. Has anyone used the Aveeno daily moisturiser on their faces? If so what are your thoughts? Ive just started new acne treatment from my dermatologist that sheds/flakes my skin, so I need a good moisturiser (that isn't oily and won't cause me to break out). Im trying to avoid moisturisers with mineral oil in - Aveeno does not list it as an ingredient. Thanks,
