Ok, I tried the Elmer's glue thing last night.  My Elmer's was too runny (and kinda stinky, can Elmer's go bad?), so I washed that off and tried Aleene's Original Tacky Glue.  All I can say is.....OWWWWW!  I managed to pull out every single facial hair that came in contact with the glue.  Then, there were all these 'holes' in the 'strip', were it looked like it didn't adhere to the blackheads, like they were too oily to stick too?  So, pulled out facial hair, didn't touch the blackheads.  Sigh, disappointing, and really painful.  So, I did a clay mask after that, to make sure that no glue was stuck down in my pores....can you imagine?

So, if you are really into pain, try Aleene's Tacky Glue.  Guaranteed to bring tears to your eyes.

Oh nooooo! That wasn't supposed to happen. I wouldn't have suggested something that I thought would cause someone else pain. I'm so sorry lunacouer. Embarrassed

I didn't have any pain when I did mine. I did it on my nose. Maybe the skin is tougher there?

Well, I'll go back to minding my own beauty business from now on.

You are not the only one. I am like, the cleanest person ever, and I like to pop zits. I think its cause you are getting something gross out of your body, or its like popping bubble wrap or something. I can't explain it. It is a girl thing, I know that, because my friends and I are always talking about it. Plus, every time any of our boyfriends get zits, we have to FIGHT to hold them down and pop their zits.

This totally made me laugh out loud.  I'm not the only one!  Grin  My BF succumbs willingly, however - his are because of nasty ingrown hairs. 


Lordy, it's a zit pickers dream.

I think this is the best hygiene-related phrase I've ever heard.   Wink

Can you use straight tea tree oil?  Just wondering if it needs to be mixed with something since some essential oils can be super harsh or harmfull if you put them straight on.

I suppose it depends on your skin, bjut I always use straight tea tree oil. However, lately, I have been using moisturizer in the day because I think the tea tree is drying me out a bit.

so I don't know if anyone's mentioned this yet.. I started to read, but now I want to post before I go out the door..

So do any of you know about vitamins/pills to take for better skin? Wholefoods just opened where I live (it's my new love) and it has so many vitamins/treatments/etc. and I didn't know if taking vitamins or pills would actually be a healthy thing to do.

I dab a bit of clay masque (Queen Helene Mint Julep is the most hardcore/cheap one I use but any CLAY mask seems to work. Look for clay or kaolin at the top of the ingredients) on the zit and leave it overnight. (like the toothpaste method) Usually dries them up in a day or so, maybe more for particularly icky ones. For prevention I'm a big fan of Philosophy "On a Clear Day" cream, it's very gentle! Also their "invisible makeup" seems to help control oil and add a protective layer to keep skin clear and oil free without drying.
Just my 2 cents (still fighting the occasional zit at 38...meh! Hoping the oil is preventing any incipient wrinklage!) Now if anyone has the puffy eye miracle I'd love to hear it! But I guess that's another thread, eh?
