Day 11

Posted by luwcas20 in Accutane Journey, 01 July 2015 · 6 views

Day 11 Started to notice that my skin is flaking on my ankles and on my chin just under my lower lip. Im guessing that this means the accutane is starting to take effect and I should make more of an effort to moisturise. Still no big side effects which I'm more than happy about.

Help: Summer Sun

acne, regimen, sunscreen, sunburn

As many of us do venture out into the sun in these hot summer months, the use of the regimen products can severely burn and damaged our skin; especially if you are active and tend to absorb the sun's harsh rays for 8 hours or more each day. Is any one aware of any helpful sunscreens that:
-Have an SPF 15+
-Non-comedogenic
-Non-greasy

As we all know acne can be hard enough . However some are also struggling with eczema . As I do myself I know its hard.

A Good Day

Today I decided to take my dog out on a walk at a trail near my house. Today was also the day that I wore a tank top in public for probably the first time in my life. It was liberating, but still terrifying for me. I'm still incredibly insecure of the scarring I have on my shoulders, but I am slowly starting to realize that it isn't that big of a deal to...

Week 10 - Stressing

Posted by Mels23 in Mels23's Blog, 28 June 2015 · 23 views

I've finished 10 weeks of Ziana, and unfortunately, absolutely NOTHING has changed. I'm still going to use it until I've done 4 months, but the fact that I haven't seen any changes at all is really disappointing. At the moment I'm having a bad breakout since I just started my period, but honestly it's not all that different than what I normally experience...

Day 6 Post 25% Tca Peel 06.26.15]

Day 6 Post 25% Tca Peel 06.26.15] Today is day six after my 25% TCA Peel.

I have a red streak over my right eye brow from the peel and I got the same thing last year.  Must be an area which is very sensitive to chemical burns.

I went out of the house today with an SPF 50 sunscreen on my face and burn ointment over my right eyebrow.

My face is a slight pink color and my skin looks...

Cycle 2 - 2Nd Update

Posted by maplesyrupmama in maplesyrupmama's Blog, 24 June 2015 · 41 views

So...I started breaking out again about a week and half ago, so approximately 6 weeks after finishing the course of antibiotics.  Urgh! What gives?

I had a small cluster of cystic-type acne on the left side of my chin (always the left side!) and one under my left nostril.  The cluster is healing now (but still red and lumpy) and the one under m...

Is It Worth It?

Posted by leelowe1 in To Acne with no love, 23 June 2015 · 63 views

Face is horrible.   Just made an appointment with a face reality related clinic in NJ for a consultation. I wasn't going to as I'm not a fan of facials and extractions but they do comprehensive acne treatment so maybe they'll have a clue about something.   It's only a consultation so I'll discuss eczema and sensitivity to many products.

I feel like a tro...

I've never been one to blog but felt compelled to share my experience on Accutane after reading countless blogs and reviews from others.

Day 3 & Day 4 (The Weekend)

Posted by Luna1990 in No Acne Picking Challenge, 21 June 2015 · 59 views

Ok, 

Good news is: I have not picked on my face, and have completely avoided the mirror. I wash my face, brush my teeth and run out of the bathroom. 4 days of completely avoiding the mirror. 
Bad news is: I have picked a lot on my chestal area! I've killed it! Especially yesterday, which was the third day of the challenge. 

Very very bad!...

Hey hey

So another week has passed. I was breaking out like crazy at the start of the week. I have seemed to have cleared up a bit now. I haven't had a new pimple for two days.

I woke up with dry peeling skin on my nose which hasn't happened before and my body is dry all over.
I've also had a really dry inner nostril that I'm pretty sure is scabbed ove...

My Story With Acne

acne story, acne, teen acne, teen

So where do I start? Hopefully not with the whole puberty talk but just the acne problem that comes with it should do (chuckle). When I was in grade 5 about 11 I got my first zit on my nose. I didn't know until then but that was a pustule where there was a red inflamed look to it. Of course no one in my class was use to it so they called me rudoph the red...

My Depression; Struggling With Acne (Bare in mind the photo above ^ is with makeup and good lighting. To see my skin without makeup go on my previous blog post)


So how do I say this without sounding conceded, I am an average person I would say physically. I am not a "unattractive person" per say. However, facing moderate to mild acne for a couple years now has really affected my personal...

Week 2/18 Days

Posted by +++dizzy+++ in +++dizzy+++'s Isotetroin (Accutane) Treatment Blog, 18 June 2015 · 82 views

Week 2/18 Days After my second week of treatment, I have already seen a dramatic improvement in the amount of active acne and bumps that I have. My skin looks a lot clearer. The majority of my skin is flat now with a small amount of red bumps, although I still do get some new bumps and whiteheads, some large ones too. 

My skin is incredibly dry, particularly on my...

Day 85 & Some Deeper Pimples

Posted by hope2013 in Hoping For Clear Skin with Spironolactone & Atralin, 18 June 2015 · 66 views

It's been a few days since I've posted. I'm a bit perplexed because I feel like there are very few clogged pores left on my face. And yet, I've gotten some deeper zits the past week or so.

A couple weeks ago I had a flare of purging, then things got so much better and my face healed, and then a bit more purging, more healing, and now a couple more deep...

Really Long But Worth The Read:)

Posted by emily14 in emily14's Blog, 17 June 2015 · 67 views

I have had acne for 4 years. I am 14. My acne doesn't look like the regular type of acne with white heads, blackheads, etc. I would describe it as tiny bumps everywhere. When i get in bright light or the sun there appears to be millions of the bumps covering every inch of my face. Going to dermatologists never helped me bc they would just give me the gene...

Accutane Day 59

Posted by piano36 in piano36's Blog, 17 June 2015 · 67 views

I had my 2-month appointment with my dermatologist today. I've been clearing up a lot lately with only 3-4 spots on my face at the moment. Since one of my main concerns is my hyper pigmentation, I made sure to talk to him about that. He told me that once I'm off of Accutane, a lot of it will fade, but he did give me a prescription for Aczone to use in add...
