Skincare products that fight acne without tons of synthetic ingredients

To all those beautiful offbeat girlies that have perfect skin… I am a 26-year-old and still have acne. I recently went off my birth control pills in order to make some off-kilter spawn and now my skin looks like I have the plague! My skin was pretty good on the pill, but now that I'm off, these painful little bastards are seriously putting a cramp in my style. I've got my foot out the door to the dermatologist, but before I go… Help!

How switching to a menstrual cup helped my home: A TMI adventure

So there are some people who are a little embarrassed to hear about, um, well…*ahem*, "feminine issues." This is not an article for them. This is an article for the other people who like to get all in other people's personal business, but understand that because of the constraints of polite society, they can't always ask all the questions they like.

Giving up shampoo and washing my hair less ICKS ME OUT — how can I make natural hair care products fit my life?

I really enjoyed the advice on brightening up red hair. In fact, Evathedefiler's comment led me to buy natural shampoo bars from Southland Soap.

Now I'm a little intimidated by my journey into Pantene Pro-V-free living, especially since I haven't had the best luck with this stuff before; trying to wash my hair every other day gave me icky shame. Could I get some advice on what to expect when you're switching to natural hair care? I'd like to hear about the face and body too.
