I am seriously manically depressed right now. I don't want to go anywhere or do anything because of my hormonal acne. I'm 9 weeks pregnant and since 1 month and a half ago I went from having perfect skin controlled by DIM to this crap. I have tiny whiteheads where I would never get them before, like my nose and forehead. My jawline is just ridiculously br...

I Am A Hypocrite.

Yes, I fucking am.

My skin is horrid right now, not gonna lie, it really is. Its the end of the month and my period is due next week or something and this always happens at the end of every month. My skin is just so terrible and its making me feel like shit - again. WTF.

I am just feeling sorry for myself all the time. I look pretty unattractive with it...

This week has been rough. I am on the third week day 21 and my skin is poop. I broke out on day 18 of Spironolactone, it was just like my old hormonal days. I am worried because how could my skin be so awesome and clear then break out like a mofo right when things were finally starting to seem to work? Was it the "it gets better before it gets worse" kind...

Had An Epiphany Today

Posted by leelowe1 in Letting Go and Letting God, 21 August 2014 · 16 views

While many of my fellow peers were probably shopping  or going to the beach or hanging out with friends, I took a ride to the cemetery in my area.  I've always driven past it and had always wanted to stop in but never did.  Well today was the perfect opportunity.  I brought a snack, my bible, my notebook, my pen and i just sat there....

accutane, isotretinoin, 40 mg bid

Accutane Month 5 Month 5 on Accutane (Isotretinoin) and my skin continues to clear up. Same results as I have posted before and continuing to improve. Only side effect that is new is dry eyes. My eyes get dry and then bloodshot, but I simply use eye drops to fix this problem. Hoping the dry eye thing gets better once I'm done (fingers crossed). Only one more month to go.....

Proactiv Stopped Working

Posted by rfowke in I don't know what to do..., 20 August 2014 · 32 views

Hey guys, I'm almost nineteen and have had acne since seventh grade. The summer before eighth grade I went to a dermatologist and was given a couple of topical creams and oral meds, and those cleared my skin up but made it very red with extremely dry and oily patches. Then the meds stopped working altogether the summer before my junior year of high school...

I was a member of this site years ago, but couldn't figure out how to use my old username. I guess there is nothing wrong with a fresh start, but nothing has changed since the last time I logged on to this site. My face still acts up and the scarring just keeps getting worse. I've come to a point in my life where I have given up all hope. I'm not really a...

I'm 90 percent sure my skin is purging. Lots of active little pimples on my chin and a couple on the left side of my face. I expected a purging period since my skin hates me, ha. It is only the beginning of my third week with these medications so I'm hoping it'll start to get better next week when I hit the one month mark. Especially since I start school...

I have been following my regime religiously for a week now and my skin is looking fantastic! I honestly cannot believe the difference in a week. Not only is it looking much better but the biggest difference is how it feels - calmer, no painful cysts and it looks the best it has for months. I actually smiled looking in the mirror this morning.

I Feel Like Crap.

accutane, side effects, week 2

I am now on day 15 of my accutane course . I would say that my acne was moderate severe before starting and I had chest acne with scars. So far, my face has tremendously been clearing quite rapidly and I think this is due to me using tretinoin cream .1% about a month before accutane which I believe helped avoid an initial breakout on my face. As for my bo...
