    Over using the oil cleansing method!

    I really liked how the OCM removed blackheads on my nose and cheeks when I used it about once a week before applying my mask. When I started using it every day, it was great for about 2 weeks, then my skin started to rebel. My pores got all clogged, and I ended up breaking out really, really badly. After reading your post on OCM, I think I agree that for me, it caused too much in my skin surface, and also the layer of oil left behind didn’t allow for my moisturizing products to get to my skin.

    I have been going on a detox (Elimination diet), and also coming to your spa for facials and peels, which has also been helping!

      That’s so great Catherine! I’m glad to hear you’re finding some great holistic beauty solutions. Yes, the OCM can be a bit much – some people break out in a huge eruption from it – its a lot of stimulation and oil – and also can inhibit water absorption…I’m sticking to the once a week deal.

    Hi Kristen,

    In my teens, desperate for clear skin, I once slathered my sensitive, acneic skin with egg yolk because I read in a write-in (the age before email – in other words, ancient history) column in a newspaper that the author had miraculously cleared their acne with regular egg yolk masks. It dried hard & crusty and made less than zero improvement to my troubled skin. It also got me in trouble with my mom for wasting perfectly good eggs!

      I’ve used egg white, but never egg yolks. That’s odd – they are full of fat so maybe that writer found the moisture helpful? Anyhoo, I think its hilarious that it also got you in trouble with your mom. I did so many things that my mom got annoyed with. I once used her expensive perfume as a spot treatment bc I heard the high alcohol content was good for pimples…so silly.

      • Nadine November 26, 2012 at 11:13 am - Reply

        I know – I was so desperate for results that I did it all:
        constant picking
        “toning” with pure rubbing alcohol
        Never moisturizing (because I thought it caused acne)
        Accutane 3x or 4x (lost count)
        BC pill from late teens for more than 10 years
        Laser treatment for rosacea
        etc.

        Not only was the damage to my skin brutal but so was the damage to my self esteem-sometimes that takes more time to build back up than our skin’s natural balance & defenses.
        Very thankful for P&S/HV & Amy at Y&Eg for helping me see the light (and clearer skin),

    oh my goodness… what HAVEN’T i done to my poor, poor skin? it makes me sad to think of the terror i put it through in the quest for a clear beautiful complexion.

    let me name a few horrible choices i made (and let me point out, i really did not think i was doing anything wrong, i did not think these methods were too drastic at the time):
    -using pure rubbing alcohol as “astringent”
    -picking at my face then applying bp/sa/toothpaste/whatever drying ingredient i had
    -getting a conventional facial the day before a big event… boy was i red – and i could NOT do a thing about it

    I used fall into bed with makeup on which caused me to suffer breakouts unnecessarily and then to use harsh products to try and clear the acne. Thank goodness I learned from my mistakes and now treat my skin to thorough cleansing, but with gentle products.

    I’m terrible.

    First, when I’m on vacation, I tan and I don’t often put on SPF in my moisturizer. If I’m at home, I put minimal amounts for fear of shiny face and on vacation, I don’t apply as much as I should. So I’ve got a bit of sun damage now on my face.

    Second, recently I started breaking out with stress. It wasn’t the simple whiteheads most people get but more like the cyst type where it doesn’t come to a head and I can feel a lump under. I’ve done things like lance it myself and squeezed it (which results in it being worst), putting on a ton of acne medication and/or tea tree oil to dry it out (which then makes the spot red, even worse than before when it was just a not very visible lump, then dried up/crusty) or when it’s in the dried up stage, when I wash my face, I end up rubbing it (I have like OCD) and then it goes back to redness. Everyone tells me to stop touching my face but I’m so self-conscious when I have break outs that I think that doing the poking and prodding is helping.

    I am now a lot better but I sometimes still can’t stop myself from picking at things or trying to squeeze anything out of an imperfection.

    I never listened to my mothers advice to not to touch my skin when acne flares up, instead my OCD instincts always kick into desperate phase. I was once so desperate to pop a pimple that clearly was not ready to leave my face, I used a thumb tack to try and ooze the puss out-resulting in a bloody mess. Not advised…

    The worst was the sun & baby oil combo each summer in my teens. Thankfully a woman in her 20’s that I worked with impressed on me that not only was that bad for my health, but did I really want wrinkles when I was 30? That piece of advice worked! Sunscreen every day now!

    Kristen,
    It was my son’s wedding, my hormones were going haywire a few months before his wedding because of menopause. My face looked like I was 15 again. None of my products were working. I realized that the focus of the Wedding would be on the Happy Couple, but in my minds eye I thought everybody would be staring at my 6 cyst acne spots. They were like red head lights screaming off my face. What would everybody think! I had heard that if you dab Thyme essential oil on the zit it’s anti-bacterial properties were 100 stronger than over the counter spot treatments. So I gave it a try one week before the wedding. Well somehow I missed the part where you were suppose to dilute the thyme with water and then dab it on. My face burned so badly that it left scars all over as if I had accidently burned my face with a curling iron . The worst spot was the size of a quarter right between my eyebrows. Needless to say 4 weeks after the wedding my face settled down and have been clear ever since.
    p.s. I purchased the kit at the Whole Life Expo and have not stopped raving about it to all my friends. My face is super soft and all the old acne scars are starting to fade. The best Pure and Simple product to date!

    I used the toothpaste “trick” as well! I’m not sure how that rumour that toothpaste dries out pimples got started, but it definitely doesn’t work.
    I was the absolute worst about popping zits too. I just couldn’t leave them alone. I actually never got scars back then (luckily), but now I never pop them and I still get those stupid red spots that acne leaves behind (they’re not real scars, but maybe lingering inflammation?)

    I once read that you could apply a thick gelatin solution all over your face and pull it off and the effects would be like a Biore strip… sounded appealing but boy was I wrong. I put it on when it was WAYYY too hot but couldn’t get it off until it was dry and the smell was beyond raunchy (they don’t tell you THAT part). All in all an awful experience for my skin. I wish I could post the picture here. I’ll send it in if I win 😉 It’s horribly embarrassing!!! Now it’s all about gentle products for my skin. I started using Holistic Vanity last year and just got my mom on it recently. She’s been having all kinds of changes to her skin due to menopause and these products have literally cured her “burning” sensation all over her face. I <3 P+S!!

    I had enlarged pores on my nose and terrible blackheads, so I decided to take measures into my own (teenage) hands.

    I tried the products the dermatologist prescribed but they made my face better for a couple of weeks and then horrible rebound effects, and rosacea much worse, after using them.My skin is also dry and trying to find a product for rosacea that does not strip skin of moisture and is natural is difficult. As a cancer survivor I am very suspicious of chemical laden products.

    I read on MakeupAlley that putting milk of magnesia on your skin in a thin layer prevents oiliness and creates a matte finish under makeup. What it did was dry my face out and sucked out all the moisture. I was like Charlize Theron as the Queen in Snow White. Ahh!

    As a teen year after year I would go to the dermatologist for a fix to my acne. Summers would be spent indoors as my face peeled and burned. No fix to be had and in hindsight it probably wasn’t that bad at all. I still have hyper-pigmentation to show for those efforts, but now I have the knowledge that my face likes natural products best.

    I used to love picking my pimples back in high school! I remember reading an article in one of those teen magazines about the best way to treat pimples. It said that I should steam my face for 10-15 minutes then cut a cotton swab in half and use the end of the stick to “gently” squeeze out the puss out of the pimple and smooth over an alcohol based astringent. This was in now way shape or form gentle! I ended up crying afterwards from the pain and breaking out even more the next day. Yikes! Im glad my picking days are over.

    When I was mid-adolescence I thought applying aspirin to a zit (under a bandaid) overnight was a good idea. I woke up to a black/blue/purplish chemical burn. I made a trip to the pharmacy and purchased concealer for the first time.

    The worst thing I ever did (besides toothpaste, picking, washing my face more than twice a day, etc etc, I’ve done it all) was tan for so many years. I started tanning when I was 15/16 and tanned up until my early 20s. Maintaining a bronzed look made me feel good and kept my skin acne free. Man do I wish I REALLY understood all the damage that would happen to my skin instead of being a know-it-all teenager. I figured, if I couldn’t see any damage then no damage was happening. I now have a few broken capillaries on my face and back and brown spots all over. Lovely. Cheers to being young and dumb! Lol

    As a teen I never realized how important regular skin-care was. I used to sleep with makeup one, and never used any makeup removed (especially for my poor eyes), and thought I could compensate with a high-end skin-care line (like Proactiv). Growing up I understand it’s important to remove makeup, wash twice a day and moisturize (hopefully with SPF protecting) daily.

    Years ago when I was a teenager fighting severe acne, I went to a local beauty salon in my hometown in India. The salon owner was sure that her herbal treatments would cure me of my acne. Desperate to find a solution, i agreed to the facial treatment. 24 hours after the facial, I started having discomfort and pain all over my face. I think my face actually was severely inflamed. By next morning my face was completely septic and inflammed. My worried mom took me to the dermatologist who was shocked to see me and prescribed antibiotics. That sure gave me a scare for my life.

    Hi Kristen!

    In my twenties my acne curse became a rosacea curse. I would be burnt red in my cheeks and forehead for 2 days which would dry up and peel off in layers over the next 3 days and the cycle would start again. To combat this the only thing I could think to do was use hydrocortisone creams of varying strength for relief for the burning itchiness. It was a horrible time in my life.

    I have since discovered that this was largely due to food and chemical allergies.

    I tried everything when I was younger, but I have to agree with others, tanning salons are the absolute worst! Also, when I went outside in the summer for a “quick errand” I usually didn’t bother putting on sunscreen.

    I don’t even know if these are still being sold. I used the Oxy facial wipes for Acne in hopes of the clear complexion in the late 90’s as per TV advertisments. Although all it did was burn my face, it went dry and flaky. Then I’d pop my pimples then use the product thinking this would work better. I also used tooth paste and sometimes proxide. This only multiplied my problem. Not only did I have worse acne but red, dry blotchy skin as well. Boy have I learned a lot about skin care since highschool.

    I am still relatively young (turned 22 this August) but I regret not putting on sunscreen when I was younger. I have red marks from post acne and the scars just won’t go away =( I still get acne and now I know not to pick at it and not touch it however tempting it may be. I’m glad I have a pretty steady skin routine but I know I should have started sooner.

    Another mistake from the past is giving into all the hype about certain luxury brands before doing thorough research on the products and companies themselves.

    I would continue on with the amusing “fake and bake” stories when being orange was cool, but I figured I’d move on to the more PAINFUL ‘don’t try this at home’ type stories…

    Ever tried waxing your bikini area at home? DON’T!

    Me, being the smart intelligent woman that I am, was strapped for cash as I had just splurged on a sun-filled vacation to Varadero, Cuba. Super excited (as I was going with my new main squeeze ;)) I decided to wax-ify my whole body AKA. the works. Sure enough I went to my local drug store and purchased the super hard wax that you microwave for 5 minutes and then apply the scorching hot wax to your ‘sensitive’ areas…. Well sure enough as I was scared to death, I couldn’t effectively rip the strip of the who-ha area when I was waxing! The strip got stuck! Not to mention the deathly pain associated with it! I finally had to end up cutting the wax strip off (yes, it was attached to my skin) which later caused me to break out in some sort of reaction that looked like HIVES! The whole vacation I had to wear a skirt, embarrassed of my ‘try-me-at-home’ wax job. The joys of being a woman! 🙂

    In highschool, I was too chicken to wax, and when I did I got massive burns that would last weeks on my skin from heated waxs,and I hated shaving. So I bleached instead. The embarrassing part, is that I used boxed blonde hair dye. I did small spots, then in the name of vanity, I got obsessed with covering up every single hair. With the burns from hair removal, and natural the skin damage from bleach…what’s worse is one time my eldest brother walk in on me with all the hair dye overing me from head to toe 🙁 so embarrassing

    The worst skin mistake I’ve made over the years is thinking that SPF is for the summer only. “I don’t need sunscreen, it’s winter!” I finally learned that exposure to UVA rays, the primary culprit behind aging, happens all year long. In addition, I also learned that UVA rays can penetrate glass, so you’re susceptible to the rays even when you’re indoors or driving in your car. I spent years choosing to not wear sunscreen in the winter and I like to go on long walks, hikes, runs and ski in the winter (UV exposure is even greater in higher altitudes!). I’ve been sunburned across the nose and cheeks many times in the winter. I now live by the following: Everyday, I use a sunscreen or moisturizer with a minimum SPF 30, which I feel is the number one way I can keep my skin looking youthful.

    The worst thing I did to my skin was overdo OCM and ignore the symptoms. At the time, my skin was OK, but I was obsessed with getting rid of my blackheads. I suspect at the same time I also had some serious hormonal fluctuations because I started getting terrible cystic acne that persisted even when I stopped doing OCM. It took 6 years for my skin to calm down completely and I stillll have blackheads However, I’ve learned a lot along the way.

    The worst thing I did was mistake my rosacea for acne. This led to a terrible cycle of “treating” my skin with drying acne products, over-exfoliating, and not enough moisturizing. All these products led to redness, and you guessed it, acne flares, as a result of the irritation. I’m still dealing with skin damage as a result of my mistakes! But I’ve since learned to be very, very gentle to my skin.

    I have done so many terrible things to irritate my sensitive skin, but I think the worst thing was starting an anti-aging regimen too young. I literary burned the top layer of my skin with using too many strong chemicals from the next “miracle product”. My dermatologist said that I may have even caused the rosacea that I have now. It has gotten worse in the last couple of years, but recently I have switched to using all natural products. Although I haven`t seen any major changes in my skin, I`m happy to say that the products I`m using haven`t caused any irritation and that`s such a relief. I`m finally learning that I have to be gentle to my skin and use gentle products for it to finally heal.

    Before I was diagnosed with seborrheic dermatitis, I used to try to remove the flakiness with all of the wrong products – abrasive exfollients and skin polishers. Even after the diagnosis was made, I used the prescribed steroid creams and antibiotics to no avail. It is not until I switched to P&S natural skin products and a no gluten/dairy diet that my skin finally began to calm down.

    Before being officially diagnosed with seborrheic dermatitis, I used to try to rid my skin of flakes by using harsh exfoliants and skin polishers. This made my skin even more irritated. I then switched to the prescribed steroid creams and antibiotics, with no results. It was not until I adopted a natural skin care routine and eliminated dairy and wheat from my diet that I began to see my skin mae a drastic improvement.
