Day Two - Post 25% Tca Peel

Posted by mr. matt in 25% TCA Peel #5, 22 July 2014 · 14 views

I woke up a couple of times during the night because my face hurt.
This morning, I took a look in the mirror and my face looks like I have a very minor tan and it feels somewhat tight.
Based upon my experience with this in the past, the skin on my face should become progressively tighter and tighter and begin to peel in about two to three da...

Day One Hundred Twenty-Something

Posted by Mels23 in Mels23's Blog, 20 July 2014 · 38 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 12-16 DAY 12-16  
My job on the movie set this week went well, even with the condition of my skin. I was still ashamed and felt very miserable when all the cameras and lights were directly on my face :( Although no one made a comment on my breakouts (ouf!).  
Skin update    
The few whiteheads from last week are slowly healing. It seems that my s...

Day 45

Posted by JolieJulie in me vs. acne, 19 July 2014 · 29 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...

Home Remedies For Eyelash Growth

Our eyes enhance our facial appearance. It therefore does not come as a surprise why much attention is given to the eyes especially with the ladies. The application of make-up around the eyes is all in an attempt to make your eyes 'pop'. Due to thi...

Posted by shaunlarry in Appleseed35, 18 July 2014 · 46 views

My week started off rough. Many break outs, redness and texture wasn't good. I woke up this morning and saw noticeable improvement. I hope this is the turning point. The thing is, my good and bad days alternate. Every time I think I have a good day, the next day will 100% be bad and vice versa. 
My left side has more break outs than the right....

Update On Honey And Licorice To Clear Skin

Posted by katie070 in katie070's Blog, 18 July 2014 · 26 views

Hello all! 
Been a few months. Just wanted to update my progress. I stopped doing the honey and switched to a moisturizer after the worst of the 'crepe-paper' look that my forehead in particular had was gone. 
My skin has improved 85% from where it was even three months ago. The licorice (now I take less, 2 capsules of 450 mg a day) settled my h...

Living Above It All

Posted by leelowe1 in Letting Go and Letting God, 17 July 2014 · 43 views

It's fascinating to me when I see people with adversity that go about their day like nothing is out of the ordinary.  Some of these people have life changing disabilities that are highly visible and yet they go out and LIVE not just EXIST.  I so want to be that person that overcomes.  I am struggling though, I truly am.  I know this is...

accutane, advice, dermatologist

I'm so sorry!  
I haven't written in over a month, and it was intentional.  I don't want to write every day or every week when there is nothing interesting 
to write about.  What I've basically been doing this entire month is calling any dermatologist in my area I could find, and asking how soon I can be seen. 

A quick reminder, th...

So, it's been just over two weeks since I started Accutane. So far, the side effects seem to be pretty normal. There are a couple things that I'm not so sure of because they may or may not be completely unrelated.
My skin is defiantly dry. Yesterday I could feel how dehydrated and tight my cheeks and jaw were as I talked. I've got big patches...

5Th Day After Aldactone

I'm 31 years old and been fighting with acne since I was 14 years old. Unfortunately, I have this bad habit picking on my skin that I ended up getting scars around my chick and jaw lines since I was in early 20's. I was able to cover with make-up. I've never went outside without makeup since I was a teenager...

My Skincare On Accutane

Posted by tanna23 in A New Start, 15 July 2014 · 44 views

So far my skin care regimen since I've been on accutane is doing pretty well. My skin is normal, not dry or oily and I got clear very quickly. My biggest problem now is all the PIH and unevenness.

Old regimen

Cleansers -
Aveeno clear complexion foaming cleanser on most days
Dove pink bar in days when my skin looks a little dryer
