Update

Posted by glitznzits in Taking Your Beauty Seriously, 01 March 2015 · 11 views

So I've now been using spearmint tea for nearly a month. I can't say its' made a dramatic difference so far, but I'm going to keep it up for a few cycles to see if it kicks in. 
 
I did notice that my period came RIGHT on day 28, which it never does (usually its more like day 30-33). I'm cautiously optimisitc that this is a good sign. ...

Not Sure What It Could Be

Posted by Mels23 in Mels23's Blog, 28 February 2015 · 25 views

For the past week now my acne has been pretty bad. At first I attributed it to me being on that time of the month, but that's been over for about 4 days now and I still have lots of pimples, along with those bumps that I know will turn into some soon.
 
I want to say I'm just purging, since I've been using a turmeric face mask (not for the purpose of...

Hello to whoever is reading this blog!

I started taking Diane 35 and Spiro both on the same day over a month ago. Since then, I have been spending a lot of time here posting my concerns as well as reading about other people's experiences. Since I was posting almost every week, I figured I should just start my own blog so I can track my progress as well....

Week 2-Regimen And Products

Posted by CiciBabyGirl in Trying Natural, 27 February 2015 · 26 views

Well, I feel like my skin is getting better, but its also the week before my period when my skin normally does get better anyway so its not really reliable. I'm still getting a new pimple every day, and today I got what I can only assume is a cyst from the pain and ache. I'm going to ask on the forum because I've never gotten anything like it before....

Day 11 - Dry And Chapped

Posted by ScarlettShannon in 28F - Accutane - Acne Sufferer for 17 years, 26 February 2015 · 31 views

Hello! The side effects I had in the beginning (headaches, joint aches, irritability, blahness, low energy.... it really felt like a hangover for a week) are GONE! I'm feeling more like myself pre-Accutane, except for the dry dry dry lips and the start of dry skin. I can start logging more about my face/skin now! I'm glad I didn't give up right away!

sensitive skin, dry skin and 7 more...

So I have spring break in TWO weeks, which is going to be great with the sun on my face and back. I need some vitamin D! I take vitamin D supplements every now and then, but i want the real stuff. Anyway, the reason I am back on here is to look at my progress that I made last year with my acne, and see if I can do anything about my current situation....

Accutane-Week 6-Rock Bottom

Posted by l9germaine in l9germaine's Blog, 25 February 2015 · 43 views

I am completely overwhelmed with emotion. I am sad. I cry, at least once a day.
 
I understand that depression is a major side effect of this medication but to be honest the only reason I feel the way I'm feeling is because of how my face looks. I am obsessed with it. I stare at myself in every mirror, every reflective surface. I think about my face...

2 Months After Atralin And Aczone With Solodyn

Posted by Amanda4747 in My Solodyn and Ziana experience, 25 February 2015 · 31 views
solodyn, atralin, aczone

I know I haven't been on here for a while.. I wanted to log on post an update on how my skin is doing because most Solodyn logs I saw were incomplete and no ending results were noted. So, anyway, I was on Solodyn 60mg and Ziana for 2 months. I was still getting some inflammation and clogged pores. Then, my Dr put me on Atralin, Aczone, and Solodyn 80mg fo...

Week 9 (Day 66)

Posted by leelowe1 in To Acne with no love, 24 February 2015 · 50 views

Well I am heading into week 9 and I am still in the midst of this breakout.  I am noticing some clogs turning into inflamed, undergrounders so hopefully that means that I am moving in the right direction though it seems that I am constantly breaking out in the same areas over and over and over again.  I am seeing more hyperpigmentation that is n...

Week 3

Posted by miztiger15 in We meet again, Accutane, 23 February 2015 · 35 views

So far nothing really crazy. Symptoms I have:
VERY chapped lips. I have been using aquaphor every chance I get
My skin is still pretty oily, but my cheeks are sometimes flaky after I put on makeup.
Since it is really cold out it is hard to tell if my face is getting red from the freezing wind or the Accutane. Redness doesn't stick around though.
My scalp...

Day 13 Looking Better

Posted by virtualjeff in virtualjeff's Blog, 23 February 2015 · 36 views

I'm still in the purging phase, but it hasn't been too bad.  Some new acne showed up where it has never showed up before.  The turn over rate of acne has definitely been expedited by the RetinA.  I think the BP 2.5% has helped too with the existing acne.  I still have some black heads in my problem spots, but there are less.  The...

It Has Finally Arrived! 😲 😲 😲

Posted by Mary Blount in Mary Blount's Blog, 23 February 2015 · 41 views

And there it was this 5 lbs FedEx box filled with happiness and joy sitting at my door step at 1:47pm EST. I was so happy that it came. And of course I already ripped the box up to shreds lol #TeamWolveren and used the products already simple because I couldn't wait any longer. Pictures coming soon.

P.S

Epuris - Why I Quit (96 Days)

Posted by katabbs in Defeating the Monster, 22 February 2015 · 68 views
epuris, accutane

As the title suggests... I quit Epuris after my third month. For the first 30 days, I was on 20 mg. Then, for the next 60 days I was taking 40 mg. My blood work was good after the third month, so my doctor decided to increase my dosage to 50 mg a day. I was on this dosage for 6 days, and then I decided to stop. 
 
It was not an impulsive decisio...

Day 49

Posted by hotspace in My Regimen Experience, 19 February 2015 · 86 views

Hello again! So I'm approaching 50 days on The Regimen and time is really flying by. 
 
At this point I'm doing the same routine all of the time, and I've gotten used to taking a half an hour every morning and night on my face. It gets a little annoying and tiring, but I'll do whatever it takes to get perfect skin.
 
Anyway, lately my bigge...
