Accutane-Week 7: Stay Positive

Posted by l9germaine in l9germaine's Blog, 04 March 2015 · 14 views

I have surprised myself. I never thought that I would remain as positive as I have been in the past couple of weeks. Although my last entry made me appear to have been very depressed and impatient with the progress I did remain and have remained it seems to have stayed positive.
 
I get up and go everyday. No matter how I feel, no matter what is star...

Almost Week 3 *pics*

Posted by CiciBabyGirl in Trying Natural, 04 March 2015 · 29 views

*See pics labelled Mar 4*
 
I was seeing improvement in my skin, no new pimples for maybe two or three days, then I steamed my face because I noticed I was getting closed comedones and now I have big red inflamed pimples everywhere. Note to self: no more steaming. Bad steaming. 
 
I feel disappointed. I feel like I want to go back to using...

Day 6 Of Acne.org Super Dry

Day 6 Of Acne.org Super Dry So it's been around 6 days since I started incorporating Acne.org (BP) into my regimen, and my face is SUPER dry and I've broken out into 3 pimples on each side of my face -_______- One gigantic one on my right temple and the stupid triplet pimples underneath my mouth (right) have started to become whiteheads. They hurt a lot.
I don't think my acne is due...

Day 62

Posted by hotspace in My Regimen Experience, 04 March 2015 · 27 views

I'm sorry it's been almost 2 weeks since I've updated last! College and work have just made me really busy :(
 
Anyway, since last time I've re-ordered the cleanser and the BP for the first time (in full sized bottles). Still using the Cetaphil lotion and it seems to be a lot better than the acne.org moisturizer for me. Twice a day I apply 2 pumps of...

2 Weeks Off Epuris

Just a quick check in. I'm surprised with how quickly time flies -- can you believe it's already been 14 days since I've quit my Epuris treatment? Woah.

I feel amazing. My eating habits are back to normal (hehe or my version of normal - AKA hungry 24/7), and even though I'm still struggling to go out more and not be at home all day, I've been feeling so...

A New Adventure With Old Friends (A.k.a. You Guys!)

Posted by JewelsKat in JewelsKat's Blog, 03 March 2015 · 28 views

A New Adventure With Old Friends (A.k.a. You Guys!) Hey guys! After a year of silent stalking I finally joined the community!
 
My brief history:
 
I had mild acne as a teen, was prescribed topical 1% clyndamycin and YAZ bc at 15. My skin was virtually clear! It wasn't perfect but I was happy. I used to show horses, I was an assistant trainer jumper working my way into the Prix's. Needless to say...

Week 2:

Been taking Diane 35 and Spiro for more than a month now. The good news is that there have been NO new breakouts for over a week now. The bad news is that the old cysts from the initial breakout are taking FOREVER to heal.

There are currently twin huge pimples right between my eyebrows, they used to be a trio but the other one dried up and I was...

Day 20 - Ordered Acne.org Regimen

Posted by virtualjeff in virtualjeff's Blog, 02 March 2015 · 30 views

I just broke out a whole bunch the last week...pissed me off...my skin is really oily too from the medication...I think the Retin-A.  So I said f*uck it and I ordered the acne.org regimen.  I've read so many people with great results and pretty fast compared to the Retin-A and Acanya combo.  I really don't feel like waiting 3 months to see...

Week 10 (Day 72)

Posted by leelowe1 in To Acne with no love, 02 March 2015 · 31 views

So it's been ten weeks and so far things are the same, no better, now worse.  I started to clear up somewhat this weekend but I have started the week with a few inflamed bumps, two of which are very painful and tender to the touch.  One makes my whole face hurt.  It is what it is though.  I restarted taking flax seed oil tablets after...

Update

Posted by glitznzits in Taking Your Beauty Seriously, 01 March 2015 · 34 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 · 53 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 being on my period doesn't usually leave me with cysts like I'm dealing with now.
 
I want to say I'm just purging, since I've been using a turmeric face mask (not for the purpose of treatin...

Day 11 - Dry And Chapped

Posted by ScarlettShannon in 28F - Accutane - Acne Sufferer for 17 years, 26 February 2015 · 68 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!

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....

2 Months After Atralin And Aczone With Solodyn

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 3

Posted by miztiger15 in We meet again, Accutane, 23 February 2015 · 54 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...
