Giving Up

Posted by leelowe1 in To Acne with no love, 18 April 2015 · 2 views

I Have quit the Paleo detox for two reasons:

The discomfort felt as if someone was sitting on my chest.  It was almost like i couldn't breathe

Secondly, the breakout I am getting is just so upsetting.  Red bumps all over.  Since Sunday,  I have broken out in over a dozen pimples.  That is definitely unusual for me, especially since I started topicals....

Start Of - Ziana

Posted by Mels23 in Mels23's Blog, 18 April 2015 · 6 views

5 days ago my tube of Ziana came in. For the days preceding it I was super worried about this stuff. I heard a lot of negative reviews of how the purging phase lasted forever and that overall a lot of people were unsatisfied with the results. But there were quite a few that said you just need to know how to use it right, so I guess I'm willing to give it...

Accutane-Week 13 (Be Grateful!)

Posted by l9germaine in l9germaine's Blog, 18 April 2015 · 5 views

I no longer count the days or weeks. Its taking less time to get ready and I no longer stare at my face in every possible reflection. I am extremely happy with the progress in this month.
What makes me laugh is that when a new spot comes out, a tiny spot and just one; I get angry. You have to realize what you have gone through and how far you...

Keeping a list of previous products and their ingredients so I know what ingredients I can safely use.
Loved the Dove Deep Moisture facial lotion with spf 15 even though it was for dry skin. Never caused a problem and made my skin so awesome. Had green tea in it, too! They discontinued it.

8 Weeks Off Epuris

Thought I'd give a short little update on my progress. I was on Epuris from November 2014 until mid-February 2015. I stopped my treatment about 20 days before I was supposed to, because I just couldn't do it anymore. My mental state was just not... the best during these months. It was probably unrelated to the medication, but I believe that the medication...

Hey everyone!
I really, really, really wish I had tried this regimen before resorting to Accutane last year, which didn't even cure my acne because it didn't target my face enough and didn't solve my problem of hormonal acne. 
Today was Day 24 of my regimen! My skin is doing SO well. Honestly, it's pretty crazy how much can change in ju...

Where to start... I am a 19 year old female (almost 20), living in a lovely green town in the North of England. My life mainly consists of playing netball, going to the gym, studying to be a health professional at university, winding up my boyfriend and drinking wine on the weekend with my friends. On paper my life sounds pretty tickety boo, however, my w...

Accutane Prep

Posted by piano36 in piano36's Blog, 14 April 2015 · 29 views

Idk if anyone is going to be reading this, but I thought it would be good for me to document my accutane experience either way. I am a 17 year old girl and I've had acne since the beginning of middle school very mildly, but it has gotten much worse in the past few months. It is still only categorized as moderate acne at most, but I have many black heads a...

Hmm interesting stuff, so you know i have been taking Accutane here and there for the past 5 months, though only of two months supply. Had to end it early because of side effects and stuff. So i have 5 pills left, i took five pills 3 weeks ago and my skin has remained dry. Usually i would stop taking it for two weeks and oil would return.
After thr...

Day 8

Posted by LexiGunn in Journey to clear skin, 10 April 2015 · 26 views

Finally past that first week mark. 
My skin is definitely improving on my cheeks, the spots are becoming less red and inflamed. Although I woke up this morning with a little breakout on my forehead, but it is nothing to noticeable - to be honest I'm not to worried about the spots on my forehead, mostly on my cheeks is where I feel most vulnerable....

Side Effects After First Treatment The day after my first treatment I did not notice any redness, peeling, or breakouts.

The third day after my face did peel (all over) but so minor and slightly that you couldn't even really notice it.

Along the fourth/fifth day I did notice the breaking out symptoms they talked about. I got one pimple on my left cheek and four small pimples along my ja...

Day 44

Posted by banana96 in Banana's roaccutane journey, 05 April 2015 · 57 views

Hello my beauts! So day 44 of this journey and well the dryness around my eyes is just unreal. I don't know if last time I mentioned that I got an eye cream but that isn't even working for me! It's all super red and flaky and itchy. Just plain unpleasant really.
My face is healing up quite a bit since the last awful breakout. There is about 4 spots...

What To Learn From Two Acne Treatment Books

Posted by BraveAcneWarrior in BraveAcneWarrior's Blog, 04 April 2015 · 57 views

What To Learn From Two Acne Treatment Books I recently ran into two books about curing acne from our local library book shelf. I would love to share some of my thoughts on these books and maybe you will want to check them out yourself.
First one is called The acne prescription by Nicholas Perricone.  The second one is called The acne cure by Terry J.Dubrow and Brenda D.Adderly.

Still Here!

I haven't been writing because there's nothing new to report. My skin is starting to get better again after my gross hormonal (perhaps an "initial") breakout. Hoping that I won't get another one this month. My side effects are about the same or better, except for the dryness on my face and lips, which seems to be a little worse.

It's still weird to me h...

Current Routine

Posted by ashala in How I Cleared Up My Acne, 03 April 2015 · 69 views

Randomly popped by.
I started wearing makeup.... God, a year ago? Longer? Since then, was oil cleansing to remove the makeup, and this is what contributed to my skin issues. The oil itself is totally fine, not an issue, but the removal process  was effing with my skin. Wash cloths are a huge no-no, cotton pads were better but still caused issues ov...

So, officially day 3 of my 30 day no pick challenge. didn't make it around to post, so I'll catch you all up. Day 1&2 were pretty rough emotionally. The wounds were so deep, looked like I got attacked. Couldn't bare going outside or seeing anyone. I eventually had to get out though, and makeup took about an hour. still pretty gross though. I did not p...
