I have gone from younggrandma to just yg. Now,
I am using my real name.
I don't think anyone who knows me will have trouble figuring out who that is!

I have been gone a while dealing with things in my own life. I am back now to help once again. Do not expect answers from me that just tell you what you want to hear. Life is to short for nonsense. :)

UGH. So,i've always had mild/moderate acne. And on friday night my mom bought this stuff called "continuously clear" by "serious skin care". Well after i used it i found out i used WAY WAY WAY too much of it! And ever since friday night, my face has been PUFFY, BURNING,ITCHING,TIGHT AND RED. My eyes feel huge, every inch of my face Itches like crazy, and the puffyness of my face is unberable; haha. I've tried some things but nothing's been working ;;So far i've tried-

-Putting Ice ALLL over my face;which feels good but is only temporary.
-Putting Tea Bags on my face(hah my mom thought i should try this)-didnt help at all?
-Putting a crap load of moisturizer on my face-inefective.

My mom said i over-peeled my skin?
Honestly i really can't take this anymore, in four days i'm going on a cruise, and i just want this pain to go away so badly! Any methods?! Please help, i'm sorry i'm being really obnoxious right now XD! Thank you SO much,really, it'd help me so much! (link)
You need to see a doctor. Seriously, you have some serious chemical burn on your face. A doctor can give you some burn cream & tips on healing. You may even need an antibiotic.

You don't want to be on a cruise and get sick. It will ruin your trip. See a doctor and get some professional advice. You face is one of those things you don't want to mess around experimenting on.
