Photo Update On Indented Scar

Posted by mimime, 10 September 2014 · 329 views

Photo Update On Indented Scar About 9-11 months ago I had some very sad indented scars - angry and red, and they were visibly indented. I still have shallow scars, but they improve every day, and although it might be impossible, I have a feeling that they will more or less be invisible in a year or so, when all of the redness is gone, and hopefully when tretinoin has improved the text...

Posted by mimime, 30 August 2014 · 287 views

I haven't had time to update this blog at all, but it also means I have more interesting news since it's been a while. I still have the same regimen:
A-derma oat cleansing bar evening and morning
Avene moisturiser evening and morning
Retin a (airol) 0.5% evening
Dalacin (topical antibiotic) evening (and morning when I remember)
Yasmin birth control...

A Question About Layering Products

Posted by mimime, 15 July 2014 · 167 views

I was just wondering if what I am doing at the moment is ok; I am currently using dalacin in the morning and after I cleanse my face at night, and then I wait 30 minutes for the dalacin to dry before I apply retin a. Is this ok to do? It is working well for me at the moment, but I was wondering if it is hindering the retin a to do its work (although I fee...

A Few Thoughts On Natural Remedies

Posted by mimime, 10 July 2014 · 190 views

I believe a good diet, natural skin care products with few ingredients, exercise and a holistic approach to combating acne can be a good thing, but I don't believe it is "the cure". People react to different things, and if chocolate, gluten or anything else obviously makes you break out, it is a good idea to eliminate these things from your diet, but I th...

Day 1 With New Regimen

Posted by mimime, 09 July 2014 · 157 views

Today I got all of my prescriptions; dalacin, airol (0,05% tretinoin) and yasmin birth control. I obviously have very little to write about, but I just applied some dalacin on my broken out areas, and it smells incredibly strong of alcohol! I hope this doesn't irritate my face too much. It had a sponge thing on the tip of the bottle which made it easy to...

Anyones' Experience With Not Using Moisturiser And Retin-A/differin?

Posted by mimime, 08 July 2014 · 172 views

I made a little discovery the past week when I got lazy with moisturising after applying differin. I've been very consistent about using moisturiser every day and 30 minutes after applying differin at night, but the last week I haven't, and I'm sort of noticing the small spots I have, as well as the larger nodules are going away? Is this only due to my sk...

Before It All Starts

Posted by mimime, 06 July 2014 · 124 views

Before It All Starts I need to just write here to let it all out, really. I went out a couple of days ago with some friends and felt terrible because they all have flawless skin and I am still very self conscious about mine, although I know it has improved. My shallow scars are bothering me, but I'm not sure if it's body dysmorphia or if people actually do see them. I'm reall...

My Current Skin

Posted by mimime, 03 July 2014 · 157 views

I'm just going to give a description of what my face looks like now, before I possibly start to see any changes from the new regimen.
- Forehead and temples: small spots all over forehead, mostly closed comedones, 3-4 tiny red spots on each temple. Dryness between eyebrows, flaky skin but still very oily at the same time.
- Cheeks: Outer che...

New Regimen

Posted by mimime, 03 July 2014 · 115 views

This is my first time posting anything on this website, after browsing it for almost a year after my acne went from mild to moderate. I am mostly writing this for myself to keep track of my progress, but maybe someone is in a similar situation and will find my log helpful.
After having a small breakout due to stress, and after searching online for...
