Are you women telling me that you don't wear Ugg boots and short shorts in the warm weather in AZ?
It is boots weather at least 9 months a year here. I love it.
the coldness of my office makes me feel ok dressing warm for work. i wear fingerless gloves for crying out loud. and yes, there are scottsdale idiots in uggs and victoria's secret pink booty shorts.
audra, after further thought in the dentist's chair, you probably don't want to live with someone you work with. you would ALWAYS be around them to some extent and if you ever play hooky or do something your employer wouldn't approve of, she would know. not sure what type of friend she is so maybe that's not an issue, but still something to consider.
She works in the field so we rarely see each other at work, and I would never worry about her telling my bosses anything, she hates them more than I do. I am more worried about us hanging out and drinking even more. She likes to get off work and drink vodka at home. I can see that being an issue. But it's still very tempting. I could have a car and. Be out of debt in a year. I could bump my 5 yr plan down to 3.

So I have blonde lady mustache hair that I usually remove using depilatory cream. But I ran out and couldn't find the brand I like, so I decided to try these honey-maple waxing strips instead. Except now I just have a sticky and inflamed upper lip and I have no idea how to get the sticky off.
Do any of you use these sorts of products, and if so how do you deal with the residue?
Oil. I think a lot of kits come with baby oil, but anything should work. Moisturizer might work too.
Use baby oil on a cotton ball. Then ice it.
I can sympathize with oily, acne prone-skin. But I never wear foundation. It had always only ever made it worse. The list of chemicals that should never in anything that touches acne-prone skin is very long, and I never found any foundation that didn't have any of those things in it. My only suggestion would be mineral make-up?
No. And that's being a bit overly-dramatic, isn't it? I understand being self-conscious about your skin (I had cystic acne and have deep scars on my forehead/temple), but I doubt other people see you as severely and critically as you see yourself. Acne is not leprosy.Taking a deep breath and trying to not stress about it too much is helpful to both your skin and your general well-being. Mineral make-up is just that, it shouldn't have any extraneous stuff in it. I'd go that route before resorting to foundation. Also, you see a dermatologist, what does he/she suggest for make-up?
Keep your skin clean (might want to invest in something like proactiv) and your acne won't be so bad.
I have oily skin and I use some neutrogena every morning/night with warm water so the active ingredients can reach into the open pores.
Heavy makeup only makes it worse ;(
If you HAVE to use a light powder and sanitize your makeup/brushes/applicators OFTEN.

I already have a skin regimen and I have been taking oral medicine for 3 months, and the past two weeks have been just awful. I can't afford the $250 topical medication my dermatologist recommends, so I have been trying other benzoyl peroxide creams like Neutragena On the Spot. Maybe I need to up the benzoyl peroxide percentage because On The Spot is only 2.5%. I am just worried about over-drying.
Sorry to be a drama queen. I don't have really bad cystic acne, but I do have 5-10 large blemishes at a time now which makes me feel very self-conscious. My mom made me feel bad about my acne the other day, and although I know she is crazy and just says whatever pops into her head, it still hurts.
well tell her that stress causes breakouts and she's stressing you out
Well, tell your crazy mom to shove it. (Although, that's generally not helpful, and just adds to your stress level, which then makes your acne worse.)
You have a pretty face and, crazy mothers aside, people really don't see you as critically as you see yourself. If you do want to wear makeup, play up your other features, your eyes or your mouth, and try to keep whatever you put on your skin as minimal as possible. And wear it as few hours in the day as you can.
amyzzzz. did your derm suggest it could be hormonal? just curious. I have to use two topicals (super expensive but thank god for great insurance) to keep my skin normal and supposedly its due to that. which is just lame. when do we catch a break?
