Day Seven

Posted by mr. matt in 25% TCA Peel #5, 27 July 2014 · 13 views

Today marks day seven of my fifth 25% TCA peel.
 
I took a shower this morning and shaved off one week's worth of growth off of my face and I am pleased to report that my skin looks great and has a slightly pink hue to it along with a small scaly patch under my right eye.  There are some small scaly patches along my hairline and near my eyebrows...

Posted by shaunlarry in Appleseed35, 27 July 2014 · 19 views

Before I start, it seems as though I break out on Sundays haha! Just not my day.
 
My forehead has improved. Just need to deal with old marks.
My right side had a small outburst of two large pimples, not visible in the photos as they only really protruded this morning.
My left side is breaking out a little but they remain under the skin. Also need to...

The Waiting Game

Posted by iCanDream in When Freedom Seems So Far, 26 July 2014 · 26 views

Hello Guys!  (and Gals who don't like being called Guys)  
Thought I'd entertain you with a picture (or pictures) I drew this morning related to how I feel about my own acne.
This last week has been nothing but a waiting game for me... 
I wake up in the morning, eat my breakfast, go to school (research), and come home with a new pimple.

Starting From Scratch...basically

Posted by beingliv in Liv's Acne Blog, 26 July 2014 · 31 views

      I'd been on the regimen for 5 weeks before i left for my vacation in Italy, and my skin was doing great! it was pretty much clear, except for one little spot of hyper pigmentation. When i got to Italy about a month ago, i decided to stop using benzoyl because i thought it would take off my tan and make my face like 3 shades lighter th...

Waiting For Regimen Products To Arrive

Posted by maykan in May's Acne Blog, 23 July 2014 · 55 views

Waiting For Regimen Products To Arrive I am a 23 year old female and I've always had good clear skin up until a few months ago. Of course I'd get the occasional pimple during that time of month or if I'd had too much junk food. But nothing compared to what it is now. Its starting to affect my self esteem and now I can't look people in the face when I talk to them because I'm so self conscious...

Isotretinoin Progress Hey all,
 
So far, my results on Isotretinoin (Accutane) are great! My skin keeps getting better and better. It definitely has taken the acne on my back the longest to clear up, but this month the acne is clearing up nicely!  I really hope the rest of this month and the next two months continue to be this great. Accutane has worked wonders for m...

Its been a long time. I stopped coming here when the site moved to web 2.0 design. 2010-2011 I spent a lot of time here.
Now, though, there is little to gain for me here. Reading other`s posts just reminds me of my own past and current hardships. There is so much pity, that, as someone else said, when you repeat yoourself over and over it gets old.

The Blame Game

Posted by leelowe1 in Letting Go and Letting God, 23 July 2014 · 65 views

So as I sit in front of my laptop and type this, I have to say that having just celebrated  my 31st birthday yesterday has brought on some clarity on my acne situation.  As a person that has suffered with this disease since 15 with 1 or 2 years of clear skin due to medication/topicals, I have come to the epiphany that we as acne sufferers are ma...

Day 17-18 DAY 17-18  
 
I had a great time in the last two days. I stopped putting myself in negative conditions and went out to a roadtrip and evening with my BF and friends. Normally with the actual state of my skin I would never had done such a thing, but I'm at a point I just don't care anymore. I didn't try to put makeup or anything, I just wanted to b...

14 Days After Aldactone

Posted by prettywannabe in prettywannabe's Blog, 22 July 2014 · 35 views

14 Days After Aldactone It's been 14 days since I've been taking Aldactone along with Birth control pills. So far, I don't see any improvement. Every time I look at the mirror, I'm counting my acne more than usual. Someone told me it can be related to stress as well. I don't know about that.
anyway, I'm not sure how long it will take me to see the improvement. I'm just praying e...


Day One Hundred Twenty-Something

Posted by Mels23 in Mels23's Blog, 20 July 2014 · 59 views

Derm appointment last Friday. I've been going to that clinic for almost 2 years, and this was the first time I had my appointment with the head derm, hah. Even though he'd never seen me before, he still said "Seems your skin is doing a lot better!", which is actually a bit true. I'm still getting pimples here and there, but haven't had any cysts in a long...

Day 45

Posted by JolieJulie in me vs. acne, 19 July 2014 · 43 views

Still using Environ. The first impression from the cosmetics is very good. The fragrances are nice. I like the textures too. It doesn't dry my skin and hydrates it. Seems like it's a bit smoother than before...Or maybe, it only seems to me... But no effect on the spots by now. Not enough time to speak about the results. 
Reading the articles on the i...

So I'm on Day three of the caveman, and I dabbed a bit of grapeseed oil on my face. My skin hasn't reacted badly so far and it's already been half a day, so we'll see what happens. I was just wondering if anyone had any similar experience to putting oil on their face while on the caveman? Should I stop this oil?
I read it has a pH of around 3.8 and our ac...
