Another Milestone...for Me At Least.

skin progress, acne, marks and 5 more...

I’ve reached a milestone in my skin journey - I can comfortably wear powder foundation with a bit of concealer. Some of you guys are probably thinking, “so what?” Considering I have a preference for full coverage liquid foundation, it’s a big deal to me. Also, I only wear a full face of makeup twice a week...which is when I work. S...

Balancing Hormones Naturally

My naturopath gave me a tincture with vitex, red clover, dandelion, and crampbark a couple of months ago because she suspects I have an estrogen/progesterone imbalance, which may or may not be affecting my skin. This is because I get irritability and extra painful cramps before and during my period, and the presence of several fibroadenomas in my breast....

Epiduo

epiduo

Epiduo cleared up my skin after stopping antibiotics (see massive breakout in previous entry) and I was so confident for months! I feel like it's an endless cycle trying to fix your skin with pharmaceuticals and the big drug companies are milking it. Creams and pills really hurt my skin, so then I had to use another cream to clear it up...

clay mask, epiduo

Saw my derm yesterday, and one of the first things she said was "Wow your skin has gotten so much better!!"
 
Last week I was reading on some ways to help control oily skin, and I heard about using a clay mask, so I went out to CVS and bought the Freeman Feeling Beautiful Avocado and Oatmeal Facial Clay mask. I used it every day for 3 days, for just...

I hope everyone who stops by this blog can gain some prospective knowledge about Accutane when deciding if it's right for them.  I'll begin my Accutane journey in 2 weeks after much hemming and hawing around the subject.  It's time.  I'm a 23-year-old female and long-time cystic acne sufferer.  Enough is enough....

Finding The Regimen, And 1 Week In.

Posted by Sbarsotti in The Good, The Bad, and the Flakey, 15 September 2014 · 27 views

I became well versed in BP during my first stint in the acne world. I knew it worked for me.
 
I first tried the AcneFree kit- which is a BP wash and then a 10% BP cream (that doesn't rub in worth a penny).
 
It *KIND OF* helped, but not really.
 
Then I went back to my old BP wash from the old acne days. *KIND OF* helped.
 
Then, I fo...

How Do I Cope With This?

Posted by Drew F in Drew F's Blog, 15 September 2014 · 71 views

I'm a 17 year old male, a senior in high school, and I have acne everywhere on my body. Chest, back, face, stomach, and arms. I feel terrible everyday. I put make-up on everyday before school. I used to be outgoing and social, but now I just want to stay inside and never come out. I have decently toned arms and an eight-pack. I haven't taken my shirt off...

I am so ecstatic right now. I went on DIM Detox 3 weeks ago. It helps regulate your hormones and blocks the androgens which contribute to hormonal acne. It is completely natural and safe. I can't believe how well it's worked for me again.
 
I stopped taking it because I was pregnant but after deep research and consultations with my doctor and mi...

My acne keeps on getting worst. All the new ones are cycstic and they're everywhere. I can't help but cry every time I see my reflection.I've tried makeup but not even that works on me. Everything is noticeable because they are bumps. My skin is red all the time and my pores are huge and its just so overwhelming. I do have to admit that I pop a few but on...

Posted by runner7891 in runner7891's Blog, 13 September 2014 · 53 views

Accutane And Dry Eyes On my last month of Accutane (Isotretinoin) and I'm experiencing dry eyes. My eyes are very red and very dry. Anyone (who is or has been on Accutane) have an advice??

I'm Gon' Die!

Not really, but I felt like it last night (more details later).

1 Month Survived!  
I'm about 2 days from my 1 month anniversary of starting Accutane, and it's a good time to summarize my progress up to now.
Overall, my experience with the pill has been amazing.  None of its side effects are anything more than a nuisance, and if they don't get any w...

6Th Week Of Spironolactone

Posted by truegirl2anna in truegirl's Blog, 12 September 2014 · 41 views

So far I have not seen any significant changes. I had two periods technically though, which wasn't too abnormal. I'm due for one any time soon. My skin is less oily, kind of, and my skin is only getting about 5 pimples instead of 8. My hair doesn't appear to be falling out as much either. My body also seems to be slowing down by roughly about 10% maybe? O...

Photo Update On Indented Scar

Posted by mimime in mimime's Blog, 10 September 2014 · 78 views

Photo Update On Indented Scar About 9-11 months ago I had some very sad indented scars - angry and red, and they were visibly indented. I still have shallow scars, but they improve every day, and although it might be impossible, I have a feeling that they will more or less be invisible in a year or so, when all of the redness is gone, and hopefully when tretinoin has improved the text...

Not So Simple I like simplicity. I only own 3 pairs of shoes (summer sandals, fall/spring tennis shoes, and winter boots), my clothing could all fit into one large suitcase, my furniture is Spartan (I love open floor space), and all my media (music, vids, books) are digitized and accessed just through my laptop. You could say I live a minimalist lifestyle... except whe...

Week 29 Update

Posted by ivyagogo in 13 Year-Old's Journey, 08 September 2014 · 78 views

I got tired of doing this every week with no change. Finally, I think we have some change. He started high school last week and I had hoped this would be all gone by now, but we are at least on the right track!
 
How come whenever I post pictures now they are sideways, squashed, or upside down? I can't figure it out.
 
    
 
 

Month 4

Posted by bcurry0731 in Accutane: One Day at a Time, 08 September 2014 · 82 views

Well I just finished Month 4 and I could not be happier. I have zero pimples and my skin is like a baby's bottom. My lips are still really chapped and my hair dry, but no dry skin. I have been on 40mg as of month 2. I am really worried that my acne will come back. I have asked my dermatologist to up my dosage, but for some reason she refuses. My sister w...
