  1. Swits added a post in a topic My Epiduo experience   

    call me crazy but i wash my face with head & shoulders and then apply epiduo and i still dont get any burns or irritation like everyone here talks about. there was an initial breakout but its minimal considering head & shoulders dries your face quite a bit so the acne you do get is very small and dried up. my advice to people starting out would be to wash with h&s shampoo, then apply a PEA size of epiduo before bed. i stress PEA because you only need a smidgen of this stuff for it to work. also try to spread it as thinly as possible and do not use any moisturizer unless your skin starts to crack from h&s. like bp, your skin should get used to it though.

    no. second hand smoke is even a debatable issue whether it causes increased risk of lung cancer.

    I'm in the same boat as you right now. I tried Jojoba oil, it reduces redness, but the marks are still there and I think it's made me break out. I'm going to be trying emu oil soon. Right now I wash my face with a bar of soap with sulphur, and it's been great so far. It reduces the redness and makes your face paler, plus sulphur speeds up the shedding of skin cells. It does have that sulphur smell to it, but it's really subtle and I like the smell. Plus my face feels so smoooooth.

    before going on accutane i noticed certain foods would get me really oily. now that i dont get oily at all, eating certain foods makes no difference. drinking alcohol is fine, you just cant get wasted. under 6 beers is fine if you keep hydrating yourself and take it slowly.

    I would definitely wait if i were you until about 17/18. This is a really serious drug and you don't want it to interfere with your growth/maturing process. Plus accutane makes your skin scar easier so it might workout even worse for you. Go back on antibiotics if you want the relief.

  9. Swits added a post in a topic YIKES!   

    yeah take into account that people that have bad experiences are gonna come on here and bitch about their side effects so they can have some form of internet sympathy to make them feel better. everyone that's had good experiences won't say a word because they don't need to since they're clear. i just finished my first week of accutane and so far it's been going great. yes you will most likely get headaches and notice your mood go down or have a hard time concentrating but DRINK WATER. honestly, it's all about dehydration. as long as you keep yourself hydrated you'll keep your mind clear.

    you should pick up eckhart tolle's "a new earth" and read it through at least once. it may just in fact be the guidance/help you're looking for.

    love almond milk. my favourite is almond breeze unsweetened, which is pretty much just almonds and thats it. 0 grams of sugar. they also have chocolate milk with added cocoa and it tastes great. and its still got 0 grams of sugar. blows my mind

  12. Swits added a post in a topic ( Almond Butter ) This diet things is tougher than I thought...   

    yeah its definitely the nuts. avoid all nuts, even if their organic. you may want to try soaking real almonds and shedding the skin off, that may help. its all because nuts contain a lot of lecithins which break you out. most of them dissolve when you soak them in water.

    try improving your diet and see if theres a change. basically cut out any foods you think that are breaking you out. if theres no change, its most likely hormones. you have to realize that at your age its most likely hormones because you're going through puberty. so if hormones is the problem, colostrum can screw you over big time. just a warning
