Ive been following your blog for a while and I love it! =)

Just wondering...what products would you recommend for spot prone skin? Your skin looks gr8 btw.

thanks hun..

well, first and foremost, do your research and see a dermatologist. if you have systic acne like i had for years, try a pill called accutane. i swear up and down by that stuff, but it's kinda dangerous, and it's hard to get. not many doctors are involved in the program. it's really expensive if your insurance doesn't cover it, too. i'm talking like, $600 for a months worth of pills. i had to take pictures for my insurance company, just so they can see i really needed it. but if your problem's scarring, try tazorac gel--NOT THE CREAM. that's also kinda hard to get; i went through the same picture submitting process again. but this tazorac stuff is strong, too. mix about a pea-sized amount with double the amount of aquaphor, and rub it on the area, but make sure you wash your hands thoroughly after. it may take a few weeks, and the breakouts will seem to be more frequent, but only because the skin's peeling, so pimples are surfacing. your skin may get red and itchy and iritated, but it's worth it in the end. in three to four weeks, you should see some type of improvement.

i hope this long ass reply helps lol =]

Awwwww thank you very much for taking the effort to write all that was reallyy helpful!

I think I have mild-ish acne so the tazorac gel sounds like the best bet. =)
