Day 5 And 6

Posted by Picky Nicki in Picky Nicki - Make It Stop, 23 April 2014 · 8 views

There really isn't too much to say. I picked a little bit on the 22nd, but it wasn't too bad, and I immediately put calomine lotion on my face and repeated that throughout the day. 
Today I want to peel the dry skin off my face soooooo badly, my fingers are itching to do it. But I can't and I won't because I start work again this evening, the first t...

4 And A Half Months

Posted by Genesys in My accutane journey, 23 April 2014 · 8 views

Skin is great. No new spots, just a couple of fading scars. Other than that completely clear all over. Need to improve diet and take daily zinc supplements to be doubly sure of no new breakouts and help scarring. Can't believe how little side effects I have had with this drug.

Posted by ashaleyyy101 in ashaleyyy101's Blog, 22 April 2014 · 17 views

How I Cleared My Acne! My Regimen! So a bit of background... I have had acne since I was about 12 and typically throughout school products didnt really work for me until I tried Proactiv. But over time, obviously this product isnt very cost effective and it was ruining all my towels!
I always wanted skin that was beautiful and clear and easy to manage! So I tried every natural way of tryin...

Every day (twice a day) I will use a Cleanser with 1% of Benzoyl Peroxide
Every Morning I will apply a moisturizer (Sebium Hydra)
For the nights:

Week 7 - Another Week Down, No Better

Posted by ivyagogo in 13 Year-Old's Journey, 21 April 2014 · 37 views

It's hard being patient when your child is suffering. Actually, I think he's doing a remarkable job but it really is rough. He was off of school last week and I think we left the house twice and then only because we forced him. Around the cysts his skin looks good, but those cysts are huge. His back seems a bit better, but the scarring is severe. I do hop...

Day 16 Well, finally getting over the initial breakout! Orrr at least I hope that I am! The breakouts around my lips and chin are pretty much clearing up! I have some big ones on my forehead and near my eyebrows but they are getting better. I can tell that the Isotretinoin is in my system and starting to work. As a result, I'm getting very dry skin and...

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...

Demotivated, Demoralized And Pissed!

Posted by leanna123 in Leanna's Blog, 21 April 2014 · 37 views

I have been on spironolactone for about six weeks and Birth control pills for about one week. I am concerned that this may not be enough. I am also still using all my topicals. I can feel some infections rising in the corners of my nose which concerns me. I know hormonal treatments take about six months to clear your face/back/chest. Thankfully, most of t...

Face Mapping?

Posted by potatothepotato in My acne story, 18 April 2014 · 35 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...
