    Hi there! Yes, I still use Retin-A occasionally on individual spots - no longer have access to doctors or a new prescription, so I'm stretching out my last little bit. :) My skin is in great shape...

    My skin consistently is better when I cut out grains (whole AND refined), along with soy & dairy. I can eat sugar for a while without flaring (actually cane sugar seems to not be a problem at all -...

    Don't overdo it - that's my tip, too! :)

    I use it very rarely these days - for a while it was twice a week, then once a week. Then I had to stretch it out further and further - I don't think I've...

    Third. :)

    It felt nice, did nothing at all in re: my Rosacea symptoms.

    A-HA! You were the one! Then, I thank you - it was most interesting. ;)

  7. G.A.R.D. diet

    Hi there, I don't buy into the blood-type diet stuff, but as for the rest, this was an informative/helpful site for me on the same general topic: http://dogtorj.com/

    I use this from time to time when my skin is particularly upset (inflammatory, P&P's, burning), and it is helpful to reduce inflammation. I usually see improvement quickly (within an hour).

    It thickens the DERMIS - the epidermis is the top layer that sloughs off. Most of us are avoiding excessive peeling that comes of overuse of retinoids, but yes it can peel you to an uncomfortable...

    Yep. I have an overall pink face pretty much all the time, still haven't been able to undo that. Sometimes pinker than others. It doesn't look all that bad really, except for the fact that my neck...

    Hm. Exfoliation & pore cleansing - it's probably the only acid I will ever use, if I'm looking for what Alpha Hydroxy Acids usually do (surface exfo, flaky skin) and/or what Beta Hydroxy (Salicylic...

    OK, gotcha. :)

    I don't think MA will hurt you, but don't know if it would do much to alleviate redness or burning. It hasn't caused me additional redness when I use it, and it does smooth out the...

    I am able to use mandelic acid occasionally, without negative reactions. But formulation is pertinent to the discussion, as is the strength. I have only used fairly 'clean' low-strength serum...

    Let me throw in here that cool & cold compresses also bring me a lot of relief. I do warm for the MGD, and cool/cold for relief.

    Rhinophyma would be very, very unlikely. I stop short of saying impossible, because almost anything is possible, but the likelihood is so slim (in an 18 year old) that you can pretty well dismiss the...

    I don't speak for Shantelle, but I believe she's saying that if Wormgirl is entirely correct, that Rosacea is solely an infectious disease, then other things that are known to be triggers of the skin...

    What Shrimpy said!

    In fact, depending on the situation, I *do* sometimes just say "I'm allergic." No one questions it, and it's much easier than explaining something that isn't anyone's business...

    Your body will adjust blood sugar-wise if you are consistent eating protein with every meal, and eating when you are hungry. That has been my experience, anyway. :)
