Ok, Turning 30 next month and I'd like to share in all of your knowledge and help my skin look radiant! Currently I am using ilike products and my pores are rather large and black in places, yuck! Unfortunately I suffer from some adult acne. I research and see that I need some sort of acid in my cleanser? Oil free moisturizer with vitamins a, c, and e and sunscreen? I have read places that if your cleanser burns your eyes it is too strong? Mine burns!!! What else helps, any product recommendations?

For a while I was using Biore, but lately it's turning on me. I'm breaking out more and I can't get it under control. Everyday a new break out is happening. I recently started using GARNIER FRUCTIS moisturizing cream. It's work really good as for making my skin healthier feeling and looking. The cleanser is good also but I don't feel like it gets all the oil off of my face. I'm so confused on my skin. It's oily, then dry, then breaks out, then lots of blackheads and then cycles all over again.

I feel embarrassed that I just got my license as a facialist and I can't even solve my own skin problems. I'm so so so looking forward to getting a mentor to help me learn more about correct skin care.

Hi,
I am 27 and I have really bad skin with adult acne. Since I have been using clean & clear cream wash I have seen an improvement. You can give it a try?


I have large, open pores too but unfortunately I can't find any product to make them smaller

Stress, aunt flow, bad diet with the holidays, etc. It seems like anything sets it off. I know that getting facials help out a lot. It's just being able to afford the facials and getting there that's hard. Kids, husband, bills you know the routine. "stress"

You're right, Wendy. I can't afford a monthly facial because of too much expenses already like bills, kids,etc. I only have a facial for special occasions like a wedding, etc. I guess that's partly why I've got bad skin.. snif

Pumi and Wendy, I feel your pain. Facials are a necessary luxury I can not necessarily afford on a regular basis. I am looking into a clairsonic? Any opinions on these? My facialist used to not use this but I noticed when she went up $10 she started using one of these type machines and they are under $300 so it will pay for itself right?

No I haven't heard of that. Hmmm. I'm going to look it up online. I've been thinking of equipment lately. I'll explain on a different thread. :)

For large pores try the mask I talked about in my blog, white bentonite clay powder from Whole foods mixed into a paste with apple cider vinegar or red wine vinegar, it made my pores shrink and made my skin really shiny... not sure why...

I used to suffer from cystic acne. I would get at least one, sometimes two deep ones at pretty specific times in my cycle.

The acne blue-light therapy has kept me blemish free for almost 7 weeks strong. Only one pimple (not deep). I have escaped my premenstrual flare-ups twice now ... waiting to see if I get one post.

I have the Baby Quasar Power Pack. But I know some people were looking into other, less expensive blue lights. It probably doesn't matter much. I know that they are pricey, but when I think about how much money I have spent to try to control my acne so it doesn't leave the horrible dark hyper-pigmentation spots I smile to myself. This was definitely worth it!
