ACNE UPDATE!
 
Face: still only one very very stubborn cyst left (its going away, but it is definitely taking its sweet time). stikl keep having those stubborn little zits all over random spots on my face (around 5 or so). the little spots come and go everyday. They are small and some are even flesh colored so its not a  huge deal, but its annoy...

About A Month

Posted by allthethings, 08 May 2014 · 118 views

Well, I said I was going to post a picture in my gallery, but I keep forgetting...but I will soon!
 
Quick update:
 
face: cysts are almost completely gone. Have around 3-4 little tiny pimples that aren't too noticeable (easily covered with makeup), so I am not too worried about them. However, I do have about 10 acne scars from all of my cysts....


Makeup- Need Opinions

makeup, recommendations and 8 more...
So,
 
I know I am supposed to be studying for my exams, but of course I am doing skin care research...so i guess if I fail at least my skin will hopefully look nice. Anyway, I just bought some new makeup to try out-
 
covergirl's tru blend mineral pressed powder
and Maybelline's super stay 24 hour concealer
 
and was thinking of going out t...

bactrim, alcohol, antibiotic and 5 more...
Obviously, I have been sucked into finals week. However i have a BIG BIG issue that I need to ask about, which is why I am writing this entry...
 
Well the 5th is my 21st birthday (yay me!), however, I am on bactrim still (oh no).
I have looked up alcohol interactions with this drug and don't think I'll be taking the risk of drinking while on it...so...

acne, bacne, back acne and 3 more...
Its finals week- so I wanted to go ahead and post about what is going on this week a little earlier than at the end of the 3rd week mark...
 
back- clearing (almost completely clear besides red marks and slowly fading bumps that you can't really see, but that I can feel on my back)
face- cysts are clearing, SLOWLY. So slowly. The bp is helping (still...


End Of Week 2

bpneutrogena, bacne, back acne and 4 more...
Well...
My back is getting better. I think the picture I posted to my gallery was a little misleading on what it actually looks like (bad lighting, etc.). It isn't fully better yet. I still have some (around 5) active acne spots, but they are starting to subside. My back has been so itchy and dry lately though that I have been putting a small amount of my...


Beginning Of Week 2

nuvaring, benzoyl peroxide and 6 more...
Well, obviously week 1 has been hell. My face is freaking out on the BP. I am only using it as a spot treatment, but my skin is SO sensitive anyway that in the places that I have been spot treating it has been either breaking out more or is SO exremely red that I have to wear makeup during the day so it doesn't look like I got punched in the face. I'm hop...


Just A Mid-1St Week Update...

neutrogena, benzoyl peroxide and 7 more...
Well, I ended up buying the 2.5% Benzoyl Peroxide from CVS a few days ago. It is the Neutrogena brand "on the spot acne treatment". So, here is my regimen (I am trying to stay close to what this website recommends, without actually having to buy the products promoted on here)...
 
- Rinse face with water in the morning
- put on neutrogena moisterizer...


Week 1-Ish

benzoyl peroxide, salycitic acid and 4 more...
Well, I never thought that I would be posting on an acne forum...but here I am.
 
Overview:
I have had really horrible back acne for the past 3 years. I was prescribed tretinoin cream for it when it began, this always cleared it up within a month or 2. However, my current doctor decided not to prescribe me the cream and instead gave me clindamycin lo...
