Hi, kitty just wondering, Have you tried Niveau Krill Oil for hair, nails and acne? I have read good reviews about it, but I want to hopefully get some first-hand experience from any users on your page? Thank you!

Hey Kim, I personally do not take any supplements in relation to hair, nails, and acne. I've tried previously with no different results taking fish oils, omegas, vitamins, etc. My birth control regulated my skin back to normal. I have tried looking up actual data on Krill Oil in regards to skin, hair and nails (data that isn't shown on a product if you know what I mean) with no results =\

Hey Kitty, I have a question re: forum rules. I saw a thread recently where a user was reprimanded for cursing, and not to be pedantic, but Beautylish's TOS state that to participate in the Talk you must be at least 13 years of age (or the age of majority in one's country). Surely a thirteen year old can handle reading a bit of profanity? I mean hell, I cursed like a sailor by the time I was twelve, and in many places it isn't uncommon to swear in everyday conversation. Even PG movies use blue language now. I can see removing comments for abuse toward another member, but citing "inappropriate language" feels a bit silly. Is there a threshold for it, or has Beautylish enacted a blanket ban on cursing?

Hi Emily,
Beautylish has never allowed inappropriate language on their forums and moderators have worked to maintain a positive enviroment. And writing the F word has never been permitted, especially so consistently. Moderstors here enforce the rules made by Beautylish, and one of the rules is that inappropriate language and behavior isn't allowed. Beautylish aims to be a fun, friendly and positive forum to cater to all ages and while some people may cuss up a storm in person we ask that members maintain a friendly enviroment. We have to respect all Beautylish rules, even if we don't agree.

Hey babe. I seen your before and after acne photo. I have hormonal (pcos) acne and my skin was clearing up but now I'm breaking out badly and I'm at my wits end. What products do you suggest I should use? My skin is usually dry but because of my testosterone is elevated I am producing more oil than usual. So I'd say I am now oily. I have a dry texture spot due to using acne spot treatment (I believe) and sometimes it can be a little itchy.

Hey Phylicia,

I have dry (sensitive) skin that's acne-prone.
My skin is consistently exposed to a lot of pollution, humidity, sweat, my skin can get clogged like oily skin does.
I've tried several cleansers, lotions, toners etc.that can cater to my dry skin and as well treat the congestion from the day!
My top skin care brands are: Drunk Elephant, Paula's Choice, and Cerave.

My first favorite (and holy grail cleanser) is the Drunk Elephant Juju bar. It has moisturizing ingredients, superfine bamboo extract and clay. The mild exfoliation really helps with cleansing your skin. I find it to be the best cleanser for acne prone skin.
Drunk Elephant also follows the same standards as Paula's Choice... so I don't have to worry about fragrance and other irritants being placed in my products.
My skin can be really sensitive, even to Paula's Choice and I find Drunk Elephant to be much more gentle than Paula's Choice.
I actually take a minute or so massaging it in before going in with my Luna mini.

Another product I find important for keeping acne at bay.. is using a BHA. Right now I do just fine using Neutrogena's Rapid Clear Lotion. This is a BHA, not an actual moisturizer. BHA's come in several different forms... liquid, serums, and creams. Paula's Choice offers a great range of them in different %'s, but Neutrogena is easily available so I tend to go for it.

I do use a spot treatment, but rarely. I don't like to irritate any acne I get with excess products. Salicylic acid cleans out the pore and helps with irritation and inflammation. The more red and inflamed a spot is, the less I touch it. If I want to extract any acne using a comedone extractor I usually wait for the inflammation to go down as much as possible. I typically extract the small bumps with no inflammation we tend to get on our foreheads (milia), and by tomorrow they're gone. BHA can help with those as well.

I don't really get any extractions done by Estheticians anymore. My derm has one in his office and she's great, but I rather pay $90.00 and have a 40% salicylic acid chemical peel that will get rid of any current acne and brown spots on my face than endure pimple popping torture, lol. If any acne is too inflamed he applies a cortisone shot which brings it down from a big pimple to a tiny white dot.

The biggest point for me to prevent more break outs is really the cleansing step. I definitely take my time cleansing and it's helped prevent so much. I'm a quick on the go girl, and I've noticed the difference by just taking a minute to really massage my cleanser in. I do double cleanse as well to make sure I get off as much off my face as possible.

Acne prone skin is pretty tricky and not a lot of people can really get it. Also take note on what days you get a spot.. there are certain times during my BC cycle that I break out. I always break out around the beginning of my light blue pills, so when I start taking them I know to be more thorough with my skin care.
