    Yes you absolutely need to have a good amount of down time if you're doing like resurfacing.

    I never had pimples before and now all of a sudden a few pimples popped up and I’m actually losing it.

    oh, you went fast to the midnight land

    Lately I have been shedding a lot more hair than I am okay with and I'm not really sure why (haven't changed my diet, not on medication, haven't styled it differently). The only thing I can think of is that I was in a car accident over the summer and have been extra stressed since then. I bought the SheaMoisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen & Restore Masque from Ulta last week, so hopefully that helps with damage I might be doing from styling etc. But other than that, what else should I be doing?

    So you likely have telogen effluvium related to the accident plus stress. Could take 3 to 6 months to stop shedding then another 3 to 6 months to regrow it.

    Always want to make sure it's not related to a metabolic issue like anemia, low thyroid, or low vitamin d levels. Make sure you have a healthy diet. You may consider daily biotin which will make your current hair thicker. And a multivitamin daily wouldn't hurt.

    Iirc you have really good skin but I don't know your baseline. Milder peels like a glycolic acid peel you can do on a Friday before a long weekend. Great for like old mild acne scars and blemishes.

    My skin has been a bit of a mess since I switched birth controls. I think it may be settling out a bit finally (three months later!!!) But it's causing some scarring and my pores look ginormous. I just want bright healthy looking skin but lately it is all sad and acne filled. People keep commenting on my appearance and I'm like THATS JUST MY FACE RIGHT NOW OK!!!

    Can a latex allergy/sensitivity make areas of your body irritated that doesn’t come in direct contact? Like latex exam gloves, not only do my hands itch, but my arms and my skin gets very dried out and break. Use lotion every day

    It 100% can. It's known as an id reaction. Your body is sensitized the latex in one area and a totally distant body part will react despite not having any contact with the irritant. I see it all the time. Treatment is moisturizing and, if you have, a medium potency steroid ointment.

    Lmaooo I'm sorry you're getting annoying comments.

    Switching birth control is a mess but it's good your body is adjusting. 3 months is fairly quick.

    So for scarring laser might be a good option but since pores are an issue too I would go with a light peel spaced maybe 2 months apart first.
