morgasm-in-your-coffee asked: are you happy with the acne regimen you're on?
Hi! I’m currently being kind of lazy with my skincare but I’m happy that I’m not excessively breaking out! I recently moved back to Southern California and I’m surprised I haven’t broken out from the change in weather / atmosphere.
Currently, I just wash my face with Purpose cleanser and do face masks from Daiso. I rarely take my Skin Pills and I shower daily, if that helps your curiousity.
It took a while for my skin to heal from breaking out (from birth control) and if I need to change anything, I will! :) Thanks for asking, have a great day!
Anonymous asked: I get this really big nasty thing on my face,They are not pimples becouse they have pus in them. What are these? How do i get rid of them? (they are usually on my upper forehead) Please help
I honestly have no idea what to tell you because I don’t know what I’m working with here! If they have pus in them, which is that white stuff on top, it could be a pimple! Pimples come in all shapes and sizes, white stuff or not.
How often do you get them? Do you wear hats a lot? Is your shampoo irritating your skin and you don’t even know yet? There’s a lot of possibilities that could be going on here but since I can’t really see your face and what’s happening.
All in all, try not to touch it! Wash your face daily and keep up with a good skincare routine.
If there’s something you don’t want the public to see or it’s just more convenient for you, email me! I decided to set up an email so I can communicate with you guys more.
I just had to post this.
A few years ago, I can’t exactly remember when but I was at my mom’s friend’s house and she commented on how my skin looked bad and asked if I washed my face or not. My mom replied that I was using a ton of different washes and that my skin still didn’t clear up.
I have nothing against my mom’s friend as she is like a grandmother to me, but today I saw her and she complimented on how pretty my skin was and remarked about how it used to be really bad and full of dark marks. I genuinely smiled and thanked her. Knowing I cleared up my own skin without the help of a dermatologist makes me really happy. (And knowing that I can help others with their acne makes me feel great as well!)
I just wanted to share this because it’s all about the long-term investments! Your skin is the biggest investment you should really treasure and work on, besides your body and overall health! Your skin shows signs of disease so it’s crucial to take care of it and keep it healthy.
Be patient and results will come in time and your acne will be gone! Eating healthy not only helps the skin, but helps you from within as well. Treasure yourself and always give yourself THE best. Never degrade yourself and think you deserve less. If you want your skin to improve, you’ve got to give it your all and not give up.
Hope everyone’s summer is great and remember to wear sunscreen!
dog-with-a-bong asked: Do u know If 100% lemon juice gets rid of acne scars?
It depends on the severity of your acne scars. If they’re just tiny dark marks and not deep pits, then yes, they can help but they don’t magically make the scars disappear. I wouldn’t use the lemon juice too much due to the fact that it IS an acid and makes your skin sensitive to the sun and such.
I think I’ve tried it once but it slightly burned my skin because I still had some active acne around my scars. Make sure your skin is fully healed and you don’t have any active zits! Don’t do it too often and be gentle with your skin and don’t be too abrasive.
Tell me how it goes for you! I would do it maybe once a week or twice a month so your skin can rest. Applying lemon juice to your face constantly or everyday wouldn’t be too good.
If it hurts, don’t touch it, pop it, or pick at it.
If it only hurts a little bit but still hurts, don’t touch it, pop it, or pick at it.
If it hurts if you push hard enough, don’t touch it, pop it, or pick at it.
If it hurts A LOTTTT, DEFINITELY DO NOT TOUCH IT, POP IT, OR PICK AT IT!!!!
reneechristopher asked: Does the Hair, Skin, and Nails work for you? :) I don't really take Acne pills but I do take Virgin Coconut Oil caps. It's supposed to get rid of Candida which might be the cause of my acne. :) Love your blog! ♥ ♥ ♥ *hugs*
Hiiii! Yes, they do work for me. They are essentially vitamins. Your skin is the last place to get vitamins so all these vitamins really help out with the skin, your hair and your nails as well. But, with everything else, I do think your skin gets “used to it” and there is a possible chance of you breaking out after a period of clear skin. This could be due to the fact that a lot of your skin cells regenerate at a faster rate, which made me shed and have dry skin alongside dandruff. :[ But I just have to scrub my skin a bit more and use Head & Shoulders from time to time. You get used to it, I know I did! lol
I’ve tried a different brand from Wal-Mart and it has the same effect. I haven’t heard of Virgin Coconut Oil caps. :o But I’ve heard coconut oil is good for your hair and skin!
And thank you! *hugs back* :)
I’m on my second bottle of this:
And I’ve noticed that the packing has changed a bit.
It’s a pop off cap! There’s no need to twist and turn the cap anymore.
The pills are a smaller size! I would say it’s a bit thinner and easier on the swallowing. I think the smell has changed a bit as well.
I got this at Costco for about $13. Sometimes they have coupons and you can get a couple bucks off the regular price. Well worth the price I do say. I’m used to the “adverse” effects, so it feels normal to me. When I say adverse, I mean the eyebrows becoming a bush, upper lip becoming a mustache, and nails growing a bit faster. Luckily, I learned how to thread so removing facial hair isn’t too much of a trouble for me. If you guys take skin/hair/nail pills, let me know how it’s going for you!
It makes me so excited to see messages! I feel like I can pick the winner soooon! :)
Before with my previous giveaways, I would extend the deadline for so long and I would only get a few messages.
Giving away stuff is so exciting- I love free stuff and I know the feeling is always great! :D
My mom surprised me with two of these! Since I only need one (and trust me, one bottle will last you a long time) I decided I want to give this one away! It really helps with acne and I don’t want this to go to waste.
Like always, just send me a message as to why you want this mask and I’ll announce the winner in a few weeks. (: good luckkkk!
booksandfucks asked: Sorry if this is a stupid question but I have pih and I have heard you should wear sunscreen. I have combination skin, should I use the sunscreen as an alternative to my usual moisturiser? I have just been told I should apply my usual moisturiser but wouldn't that make my skin oily? Lol
You should wear both sunscreen and lotion. Moisturizer shouldn’t make your skin oily unless the product is too heavy for your skin type. I usually just use Olay’s Daily Lotion with SPF 15. Sunscreen doesn’t last forever so you do have to reapply it throughout the day. I would mix your lotion and sunscreen together if I were you.
Also, EVERYONE should wear sunscreen. It’s a daily goodie!
Wow, hi all (:
Logged on and saw many new followers! I’m sorry for not posting as much, a bit sick for the moment. Because of my sickness, newly acquired busy schedule, and spring semester stressing me out, my skin has taken a huge hit!
Also, I got off birth control after being on it for two months so my hormones are probably still regulating.
Oh and I’ve been eating nothing but cup noodles and microwaveable foods due to my school cafeteria not being open ;( I’m not feeling very confident about my skin right now.
Any questions / comments, send them my way! (: I’ll be happy to help.
Anonymous asked: I have red acne marks for about 2-3 years. they're not going away. ): I don't really have acne but my skin looks worse than people with acne since my skin is more pigmented and noticeable. =] I hope you are having a wonderful day and thank you for taking the time to answer everyone's questions. you are beautiful inside and out ! ^_^
Sorry for the late reply, but I actually have no idea what could be going on! A part of me doesn’t think it’s acne marks - but possibly another skin condition? It could be genetic - look at your family’s skin and see if they have the same thing as you. OR, it could be the fact that your skin takes longer than most people for scars/marks to lighten/heal, it has something to do with your melanin and skin pigment, I’m assuming. You can try some light scrubs, keeping your skin moisturized, and wearing sunscreen.
Anonymous asked: Hi I actually have okay skin but there are these craters on my nose and in the middle of my eyebrows and my chin for like no reason and they used to be pimples but now they won't go away or even scab, it really sucks. Any way to get rid of them? also I have a really big under skin pimple right in the middle of my nose, what should I do to make it rise to the surface so I can pop it?
Ohhhhh, I know exactly what you’re talking about. Do you have combination skin or oily skin at all? It could just be pores w/ oil & sebum in them. I have them as well, they’re just “open” pores. In essence, they’re filled with oil. I took some skin pills and it shrunk some of them, so they don’t appear as bad as they used to be. I have a lot of them between my eyebrows, and I find that after a good scrub & some lotion, they temporarily shrink and “go away.” But I find that they always come back because your skin is always producing oil. Try to keep your skin moisturized! :)
For the pimple under your skin, I would just let time do its thing. If you keep trying to “push it up” or “pop it”, things might just get worse. Eventually, it’ll either go away or rise on its own time, and then you can safely pop it, while being very hygienic about it, of course. :)
