Thankyou ladies, for the great suggestions.  I do have my client using a product by Murad (Complete  Reform which I was told would help soften the Milia and make extractions easier, but to no avail)  I do believe lancets are illegal in NY, but I'll double check. Thanks again for your great feedback.

Aromatherapy 101

The term "aromatherapy" did not appear in North America until the late 1980's and early 1990's. It is widely thought that Egyptians began using aromatherapy more than 6,000 years ago.

Needing help in the fight against acne/puberty

I'm new to this site and I'm already addicted! Everyone seems so willing to help others! With that being said, I need help too!

I know this is typical but it's frustrating to see my little guys deal with this as it's affecting their self-esteem (and I'm pretty sure they're starting to hate me for "picking" (aka doing extractions) on them every…

Female competition body builder facial

Needing some advice.  I have a facial scheduled for a female competitive body builder.  She is breaking out on her face, and is needing it to be spotless for competition photos.  She is five weeks from competition and is on a very extreme diet with supplements…no steriods, however.  Any contraidications?  Has anyone had experience with this that could give me a heads up on how her skin will react to glycolic, microderm, or lactic acid?
