Welcome shoosta! Very Happy

I have to say that I'm not good at translating sms write, but I think that you may need to try and exfoliate. Also using a cleanser with BHA/AHA would help with exfoliating.
Re hair problem. Are you a gal or guy? If you are a guy what's the problem with dark facial hair? If you are a girl...I see your problem! You could try waxing or facial depilatories.
When you post next time, imagine you are writing toone of your medical professors. Some of us are quite elderly (but thanks to cosmeceuticals we all look 25!) and don't understand the young way of writing. HTH
Liz Cool

PS almost forgot...wear sunscreen if nothing else...well appart from clothes obviously Laughing

Hello Shooshta,

Please read the Announcement with the green folder that was posted by Mabsy, especially focus on the section reads:

INAPPROPRIATE CONTENT
.......
In a nutshell, please be considerate of others when posting here and please keep in mind that cultural differences may exist. Please also consider your style of writing when posting on these forums, e.g. posts written in upper case or using sms-style abbreviations can be difficult and annoying to read.


As a medical professional myself, I actually find your writing lack in clarity and somewhat a disgrace to the professionalism of the medical community. I don't mean to say that you have to write in a formal, proper fashion. However, out of courtesy for all those very helpful and enthusiastic forum members, you should certainly show your respect by at least distinctly stating your problems and/or any comments that you would like to share.

Using appropriate/understandable language not only shows of respect for yourself but also to the others. In return, we will gladly show you ours.

Moshimoshi~

Ummm.....Where have i been? I don't even know what sms style is? I do know that I can barely understand it. Who invented this style of writing and how can we make it stop? Just kidding Shoosta - I'm sure you're a love - I'm just an old poop who can only read old style!!

Like you, Maria, I haven't a clue about sms. In fact, had never seen it before honeylips used it in previous posts.

I don't consider myself "old", but this is definitely foreign to me! Laughing

sms is what the kids use when sending phone text messages it is quicker to write and they all understand it. I can understand quite a lot but then I do have 3 teenage too slightly older children, whom all like to keep me updated.

Yep, I'm with you guys on the SMS text...I haven't got a clue what Shoosta was saying and I'm only a 35-year-old poop! Smile

I think it's important for the rest of the world to know that text messaging hasn't really caught on in America (aside from those teenagers passing "notes" in class) so we don't understand a word of it. I think Americans don't utilize text messaging because our celluar providers charge the same price or sometimes even a higher fee to text or to talk....bottom line: you've got to spell it out to the Yanks in plain English (or even British English! Wink Very Happy).

I truly don't think this is an issue of age gap or us "oldies" aren't catching up with the advances of text messaging. I just turned 30 and I got headache trying to read Shooshta's message, let alone trying to make sense of it!!!

I think this is an issue of having common courtesy and being respecful and considerate, especially when asking for help and/or favor from the others... Poor Guapagirl, being herself so enthusiatic and helpful, is probably poking her eyes out and frying her brain trying to figure out what's going on This is just plain RUDE!!!

Well, I may sound harsh on Shooshta, but being that she may become one of my colleagues in the future, I would expect a lot more than this...

Shooshta -

Someone will be more than happy to help...it's just that we didn't understand your question/s.
As someone-else mentioned, not everyone on this forum is familiar with SMS texting so we aren't able to translate your post. If you would ask it again in plain English, I promise you someone will be more than happy to help you find the answer/s you need.

LOl! Very Happy
My dear! how nice to see you again! Do take a seat...care for some tea? Now, tell all us oldies about your problems...
Seriously...I got that you have blackheads? Is your skin pretty oily? I think the original suggestion to exfoliate is a good one, but there are many ways to do that. I think I'm right in saying that physical (using scrubs etc) is not good for skin which suffers from acne, but I think if you aren't erupting then a simple granular, or even face cloth may be good for you. I think some of the other members may recommend using a chemical exfoliant that has AHA or BHA. You sometimes see this as salicylic and glycolic acid. this can come in face washes, serums or creams and they basically disolve away the top layer of your skin. In high enough concentrations they will actually peel your skin off! (beleive me on this...I didn't get my sig for nothing!). My gues is that as a student you are prbably brassic so you don't want to go really high end. My recommendation is to use neutrogena visibly clear 2 in 1 wash and mask. It has the chemical peel stuff to lift off dead skin and makes a nice 2x a week mask to purify and clean out blackheads. You could also try pore strips...they are like elastoplast...you put 'em on your nose and pull off...they suck all the crap out of your pores...it's very satisfying Very Happy Avoid any toners or lotions with alcohol...they dry your skin out and it makes more oil...use a simple light moisturiser and wear sunblock. I realise that living in a polluted city you may be tempted to wash all the time...try not to as again you will just dry your skin out and make more oil. Make sure you drink pleanty of fluids...not just tea, coffee or fizzy stuff.
As far as hair on your face goes...I really don't know...if it's soft and downy, I personally think it's kinda cute. If it isn't or you really hate it and waxing makes it worse, then I guess you will have to go for electrolysis or laser removal. Don't be conned into thinking that these are necessarily permenant though, cos they aint. I have a friend who has tried everything and it still grows back. Unfortunatly for her, her hair was very coarse and it kept comming back thicker. She wishes she'd left it alone now...hindsight is such a marvelous thing Rolling Eyes
I suspect that you will get loads more suggestions. Read 'em, look up the stuff on the shelves, decide what you can afford and go for it. But remember, nothing happens overnight...you need to give any skincare a month or so to work.
HTH, Liz Cool

shooshta,

My mom's friend has electrolysis done and it makes her hair grow back thinner, and it has stopped growing back in some areas. It does affect people differently though. I also know men who've gotten the laser hair removal on their backs and I've never noticed the hair to get thicker. I'm not sure if they do laser on the face though...

There may also be creams that prohibit hair growth, I know jergens has one for the legs, perhaps there's one for the face? They also make Nair that can be used on the face, have you tried them?

Thank you, thank you Moshimoshi .I thought it was just me as I had the hardest time trying to figure out what was written. if you can't understand what is written, you can't offer any kind of help.

No offence, but it has nothing to do with "these people" not understanding sms-style of writing. I think it's a matter of courtesy to make sure that someone does not have to sit there and decipher your question when they are actually trying to help you. In fact, what you will find is that a lot of people will give up and not bother to read your post to the end because it's too time consuming to read it. If you could rephrase the question then I'm sure you'd get more replies.

What a difference 5 years has made! I know this has nothing to do with the original topic, but I had no trouble reading Shoosta's posts. It may be sad but true, but texting is the main way I communicate with my kids, husband, and even some friends! The times, they are a changin'... Smile
