7 Days Until 6 Months On A Topical Retinoid

Posted by hope2013 in Hoping For Clear Skin with Spironolactone & Atralin, 02 September 2015 · 12 views

I've finished 23 full weeks on a topical retinoid, and I have just 7 days until I can say that I've been on this regimen for a full 6 months.

I've been keeping up with my birth control (Ortho Tri-Cyclen), Topical Retinoid at night (Atralin 0.05%), and Spironolactone (75 mg in the AM).  

RIght now, I have a couple of small red marks on my right chee...

Week 4 Differin (2)

Posted by MissSac17 in misssac17's Blog, 02 September 2015 · 20 views

I'm seriously not happy.

It's acrually me I'm so unhappy with. I seem to be in this constant cycle of look in a magnifying mirror and squeeze the HELL outta my pores until SOMETHING comes out. Then what this does is creates more anxiety and deep frustration and worst of all pink blotches all over my face AND raised bumps!!!

I never fucking learn.

So I...

Surprisingly i haven't had a pimple in like a month. I had this tiny whitehead but it went away the same day.

My regimen just includes washing my face with Clean and Clear 10% BP during the morning and at night with regular facewash and on random nights apply Retin A.

My face is slightly oily but with summer winding down it's great to say that my face h...

Things are still looking good. I have one tiny pimple right now and it's really tiny and already shrinking even more so. I don't want to jinx it but maybe this is my cure.
I'm sick (again) and as I said before when I am sick I usually break out but nope nothing! Right now I am more concerned about my health than my skin -never thought I would see the day!...

8/26/2015: Day ONE
I haven't been on in awhile, and since my last sign on I have run the gamut of 500 different attempts at curing my acne.
Stopped eating: sugar, gluten, dairy and all processed foods.
New pillowcases every single night.
all natural face washes/creams/cleansers.. and don't even get me started on the uselessness of the OCM.

I went through...

New Start

Posted by bibz in bibz's Blog, 27 August 2015 · 40 views

Okay, so I am very impatient when it comes to clearing my skin. Especially now, since I was clear for almost five years with only minor issues such as oiliness and clogged pores. I am trying a new regimen for my skin and I can say that the salcylic acid has made dramatic improvements on the clarity of my skin. My skin looks less blotchy overall, but I sti...

Week 5 - Progress!

Posted by Mels23 in Mels23's Blog, 22 August 2015 · 70 views

While my skin doesn't look like it's getting all that better, I can feel it noticeably smoother!
I've got only about 8 small active pimples on my face (excluding all the subsurface bumps on my neck. They just won't go away) and a few that are healing and thus a little crusty. Still lots of hyperpigmentation and scarring, but overall I think we're heading...

Month 3 Accutane

Posted by lus4279 in Accutane Journey, 21 August 2015 · 73 views

So im a few days in to my third month of accutane. My initial break out is still ongoing but seems to be calming down. Still on the same dosage 30mg. My PIH hasn't faded as much as it did within the last couple months but still has lightened more. Keeping on with the vitamins to try and speed this process up. 

Nothing really too bad with side effect...
