Hello everyone, my name is Maria and this is the story so far:
Last August I moved to a new city (London! yeah) but SURPRISE, a tremendous acne surge was waiting for me. As a teen I suffered horribly from acne, I even used Accutane TWICE! but i got the problem under control for at least seven years. When by my third day in my new town I had pimples...

Face Mapping?

Posted by potatothepotato in My acne story, 18 April 2014 · 6 views

There's this thing for acne called face mapping that tells you why you're getting acne based on the location of your pimples. I've heard that what you're putting on your skin is only about half of the solution to acne. I've also heard that eating certain food isn't scientifically proven to cause or cure acne. I have to say that this actually helped with m...

Day 1 - Make It Stop Sigh. 
I'm back. Again. 
I had a blog here before, however my picking has not gotten better, in fact, it has gotten worse, and now I have done so much damage to my face that it is starting scar. 
I fairly good skin, though I do get break outs from time to time, but that's not really the issue. It doesn't really matter what my skin is...

So, funny story. 
Back in January, I got my hormones tested for the first time. My DHEA (which deals with androgen, which deals with hormonal acne, yada yada) was higher  than it's supposed to be. It was in the 300s range . So I started taking Spironolactone. 
Now, 3 months later, I got my DHEA tested again. 
My DHEA is...

1. Why Me?

Posted by Squirre123 in Squirre123's Blog, 18 April 2014 · 20 views

Lately I've been trying to find out why and how my acne started. I'm an 18 year old guy and I've had it since I was 12/13 like most people on here. The severity of my acne has increased in the last two years.

What bugs me the most is the fact that I spend ages trying to look after my skin no matter what I do it ends up the same. And then there are my fr...

2Nd Week Of The Regimen

Posted by lilymartatina in lilymartatina's Blog, 17 April 2014 · 11 views

so its the second week and I'm still feeling pretty shitty about my skin. A little background about myself: all hell broke loose with my skin after I went off the birth control pill and got even worse after I entered college (even though I've been extremely careful about washing my face, etc) I've tried salicylic acid and raw honey, taking evening primros...

Hello everyone reading this, this is really more for me so I know my progression with this damn skin of mine. Today is April 17 2014 and I am very stressed and even depressed about my acne. Hopefully I'll get clear skin one day

Week 4

Posted by Cali C in Absorica, 17 April 2014 · 10 views

Almost to the end of my first month...it seems like it's going by so quick! My skin is definitely clearing up! I can tell a huge difference, especially when I put on makeup. It no longer takes me 30 minutes to do foundation, concealer, powder, and then touch ups. My scalp is ridiculously dry but sulfate-free shampoo is helping and I only wash my hair once...

One week on the regimen!
What happened:
I've already doubled the dose of BP during the first week. Works fine. Sometimes I apply 2 layers, sometimes just one.
I had a very minor breakout (2 pimples), but they disappeared faster than usual. However I think I need to be more gentle and probably use more BP. Still, only 2 pimples in a wh...

Hey beauties!
This here is the first post after the initial post stating that I am starting all of these prescriptions prescribed by my new dermatologist.

Now it is official. I had my annual woman's exam this morning and my blood pressure was normal so I got birth control pills. I read somewhere in a dermatological journal online that spironolactone combined with an estrogen birth control pill clears acne for 88% of women. I took my first birth control pill of the month at 9:44AM! If you have followed my bl...

The Truth About Spironolactone

Posted by Pimple Zone in pimples on forehead's Blog, 16 April 2014 · 21 views

Although it paints a negative picture in some peoples’ minds, there are all kinds of scientists and researchers working in laboratory conditions in order to find cures for acne. Sometimes, however, drugs that were designed to do other things end up working very well on skin conditions like acne, in what can only be called a happy accident. The Spiro...

Month 2: Accutane

So I am now on day 3 of Month 2 dosage and feel like I'm getting better symptom wise every day. Everything that I told my dermatologist is normal -- so I am hoping it stays that way.
