  1. The center 1/3 of my forehead is my problem area and although it is oily and acne prone (clogged pores/blackheads mainly), it looks scaly and red ALL THE TIME. I am not sure why this is the case because the redness does not improve no matter what I do. I am wondering if it is red from the amount of harsh products I have used on it in the last year. Anyhow, I am looking for a cream or moisturizer that could repair this skin and get rid of the redness without causing any clogged pores or acne. Does anyone have any suggestions?
  2. Hi All, I've been lurking on the forum since July last year and thought I would share my thoughts and experiences on my journey and how I've come to a decision to begin roaccutane (UK). I know many people do not agree with this drug but I am completely aware of it's side affects and have read the booklet and the ipledge programme information already. People often bash others that take roaccutane for mild acne, but just like the rest of you, we suffer too. I can't remember the last time I looked in the mirror and felt happy about my face, I cry every single day and have started taking sertraline to be able to cope with how I feel about my face. FYI I'm not depressed, the sertraline is suppose to help with the OCD towards my skin, Acne has been a battle that has completely changed my life, I completely sympathise with every single one of you who post on here. My acne is mostly comedonal, I do suffer with the persistent breakouts of papules and pustules (normally 1-3) in the chin area but the main issue for me is the blocked pores, they cover my entire t-zone. Many people have told me my face is fine, most are extremely shocked I have been prescribed such a strong drug, but both my mother and sister have taken roaccutane for acne and we have strong acne genetics with-in our family. I want to get rid of this in its early stages and while I'm still 19 I have time to deal with it before it would get worse and begin to scar like my sisters. I started getting acne when I was 18, before then I had a FLAWLESS complexion. it began in the most persistent area to date, the sides of my mouth and my chin. As I became more worried about my skin the acne began to spread, it began on my chin and then blackheads and comedones began to spread all around my nose and up to my forehead, this destroyed me inside, witnessing it getting worse was devastating. I visited two dermatologists privately in the UK, both which prescribed a combination of medications. I have tried countless topicals (Differin, Duac, Epiduo, Zineryt) in combination with many different antibiotics (Lymecycline, Doxycycline, Emerythromycerin) All of which had no affect on my skin what so ever (Baring in mind I gave each treatment combination atleast 3-5 months). Lymecycline with Differin was my last treatment option, I gave it about 2 months and nothing had changed, I get I could've waited longer but I just no longer had the patience, the acne has stopped me from leaving my house, it has completely destroyed my life and relationship. People try to scare me with the side effects of roaccutane but I'm already at rockbottom anyway, I need the acne to go away. I went to a dermatologist yesterday (02/03). I made the appointment yesterday morning and saw my consultant dermatologist by 18:30 (02/03) in the evening. (I have private healthcare in the UK which means I don't have to wait at all) I went into the appointment expecting a prescription of Retin-A and another antibiotic combination. I can admit I did have roaccutane in mind. After explaining my distress to my doctor and explaining to him how much this has affected my life he examined my skin, asked about what treatments I have pursued already and questioned me a little further. After a 20 minute discussion he asked me if I had ever heard of isotretinoin, and after trying different combinations said it would be the most affective form of treatment. There was mutual agreement and I am overwhelmed with joy to undertake my treatment and I feel so grateful that it's happening as fast as it is (Normal wait-time on the NHS to see a dermatologist is 6 months considering my case isn't severe). I left the doctors office and had my blood tests done right away, I had a few more this morning too (03/03) but I am picking up roaccutane either today or monday (if my dermatologist doesn't get back to me). My point is people out there with very mild acne, don't suffer in silence. It has had such a profound effect on my life and my dermatologist could see this, after understanding my situation and that I've already attempted other forms of treatment I'm happy I am going on roaccutane. I've heard it has changed many people's lives and I cannot wait to witness it change mine, when he prescribed me the drug I felt like my life was being handed back to me. I'm going to document my journey on acne.org, I don't see many people with mild acne documenting there experience on the drug as many never decide to take it anyway. I just had a few questions to the accutane users on the more mild end of the acne scale before I begin my roaccutane experience... First of all I currently am using clean and clear and differin to help clear my skin up, should I stop this? I've heard many people have dry and irritated skin from roaccutane and my doctor did mention it would be a side affect. If so should I be washing my face at all? My skin is super sensitive btw (I have combination skin oily t-zone, dry cheeks) and if I should can anyone recommend any products to wash my face with and any moisturisers that I should consider buying in the UK! Thanks for reading and I hope you understand my decision to undertake roaccutane as my treatment. I hope I gain some responses! Ben!
  3. 1 month of using BP

    Hi! I've been using BP for a full month now and I honestly can't see much of a difference. I don't know if I'm gonna order the acne.org products and try them. I was kind of hesitant to use BP in the first place, because I believe the best thing you can do for your skin is just keep it clean and leave it alone and the BP clearly irritates my skin even now after a month. So idk, these 4 weeks hasn't given me more confidence in BP that's for sure. I'll do an update if I do decide to do anything. The products I'm using: Cleanser - Basiderm Oil Control Foam Wash Benzoyl Peroxide - Basiron 5% AC Wash Moisturizer - Basiderm Oil Control Daily Moisturizer
  4. Painful chin acne

    Hi, okay so I need help from all the acne solvers out there in the universe. I am a 17 year old girl, and have had relatively clear skin my whole teenage life- even when I hit puberty. Except for the past year my face (chin especially) has been HORRENDOUS. In the pictures attached you can see what it looks like. It is painful as you can probably imagine and had been consistently like that for a year (as I mentioned before). I've been forced to wear tonnes of makeup just to cover the redness, and even when one pimple fades, a red mark is left over and a new one pops up. I've slowly become incredibly self conscious- to the point where I won't even let my family see me without makeup on anymore. PLEASE if anyone knows how to help ( without going on medication) Please do I can't deal with it anymore. I've been cleansing with Liz Earle cleanse and polish- which I've been using for my whole life, then using their toner and moisturiser. I've not used many acne treatments because they never even to make it better- only worse. Thank so much, your help is much appreciated! This is it not even at it's worst (baring in mind these NEVER clear up, has been constant for about a year now) :
  5. DIFFERIN INITIAL BREAKOUT

    I started DIFFERIN 0.1% about 10 days ago and have already had a massive breakout. Like I can't leave the house because makeup can't even cover it breakout. It is so bad but I would get through it if I knew it was working. Is it normal to breakout immediately? And if I have the breakout so early on, is there hope that I will have clearer skin/see an improvement before 8 weeks? I just need reassurance that it actually works and I'm not going through the embarrassing breakout for nothing
  6. This is my skin. (See pictures) I'm 17 years old, female, and I have been dealing with acne since I was 12, but it properly started when I was 14. A brief background to my skin: I used Duac when I was about 15. It helped with my acne, but caused my skin texture to react leaving me with an orange peel-like texture, large pores. I think it is also due to over-exfoliation. I was prescribed differin later on, honestly didn't really do much at all. Just made my skin dry, the pore size stayed the same. (Ive tried DML lotion too. Applied it thickly like 6 times a day and it did nothing.) I have been dealing with this condition for 2 years now. I had poreless skin at about age 14. I am certain it is not to do with genetics either, both my family and parents don't have large pores. I will be going to try Paula's Choice 10% niacinamide from an FAQ that suggested it on here. Reviews are relatively good regarding the pore size, many saying their skin texture returns back to normal. But please anything you know is appreciated!! I am stuck. What's out there that I can use so my skin can return to normal? I am honestly so desperate. I have read all the forums there is out there.
  7. Guys Im only 16 but I have been picking on my face since 15, from time to time, I do get extractions but they still come back! I wear makeup to school since last year without fail. I am too embarrassed to show my monster face to people. Please tell me what should I do? And people that used to suffer had skin like me, what did you do to at least improve it?

  11. Tazorac + Doxy Log

    Hi guys!! I'm an 18 year old trying to get rid of her acne once and for all I have suffered from acne since my freshman year of high school (mild to moderate). My acne was never really cystic - I had inflamed pimples and blackheads in my T-zone. Through trial and error over the years, I was finally able to clear my skin through using Retin A Micro 0.04% (RAM) at night, along with Aczone or Finacea in the morning (alternating each day). However, during the fall of last year, I began noticing closed comedones (whiteheads) on the sides of my chin. I began using the RAM in these areas. However, this did nothing, and my comedones worsened. They began to spread to the rest of my chin, on my upper lip, and in between my eyebrows. My nose, which has always had blackheads, became even more clogged. The worst part is that these comedones become inflamed zits and leave hyperpigmentation behind. I talked to my derm about this, and she upper my RAM to 0.1%. This did not help, even after 6+ months. She said that the next thing to try was Spiro, which I did not want to take. (I have, however, through my own research found that Paula's Choice AHA and BHA gels do help to reduce the clogs to some extent - see my routine below.) I recently switched derms. He is putting me on Doxycycline (75 mg) and Tazorac cream 0.05%. I am hoping that the Taz, being a stronger retinoid, will help to eradicate these comedones. I also think that my skin may be slightly resistant to the RAM, as I have used it for the past 5 years. Because retinoids have worked well in the past, I'm hoping that a different retinoid will shake things up and clear my pores. Here is a great link describing the differences between RAM and Taz: http://www.skinacea.com/retinoids/natural-vs-synthetic-retinoids.html#.UsjULODFXJw As of now, my skin consists of comedones on my chin, nose, between my eyebrows, and on my upper lip. My "problem area" is definitely my chin (esp the sides). I get the occasional random pimple, but for the most part, any inflammation comes from my comedones becoming infected. My current routine: AM Wash with Cera Ve hydrating cleanser Mix Paula's Choice BHA 2% gel with PC AHA 8% gel Cera Ve moisturizing lotion Aczone or Finacea (alternate) PM Cera Ve hydrating cleanser Taz 0.05% cream Cera Ve lotion *Take 75 mg Doxy with dinner I will be documenting my progress on both Taz and Doxy - partially for myself, partially because I have been lurking on other people's logs for a long time and find them extremely helpful. Please comment with questions, support, or advice Other Links: Facial Masks I Recommend:
  12. Please help, how long does the initial breakout on DIFFERIN 0.1% last? I've had breakouts since day one. I've heard people say you get 2 weeks of breakouts then I have heard people say 4 months of breakout? What was it like for you?

  14. Hello forum! I know I should feel lucky for not being the victim of severe acne scarring. That being said, I've got a minor skin issue which, to be honest, greatly affects my everyday mood and self-esteem in a negative direction. For as long as i can remember I've been struggeling with black heads. In recent years however those blackheads have begun leaving noticeable "scars" (enlarged pores) when gently removed, especially on my right cheek. Those scars are somewhat deep and they look especially unhealthy in overhead lighting. I am kindly asking for any recommendations or advice on treating/minimizing the most apparent pores on my cheeks. I've read about chemical peeling and leaser treatment but I dont know if those are any good? By the way my skincare routine is as following: daily washing with a mild organic facial cleansing soap. thereafter using a moisturising cream from the organic brand "Lavera". Occasionally i've begun using an exfoliating mask but I dont see any difference, execpt maybe the pores event become larger afterwards. Hope anyone cares to give suggestions, thanks in advance
  15. It's been just over a month and a half on Accutane. I'm on 40mg once daily. My skin had an initial breakout when I first started that was really bad but only lasted about a week. Once my skin healed from that it was nearly flawless besides scarring and hyperpigmentation. Then once again my skin broke out last week, assumably from my period, and it's slowly starting to heal up now. I've also gotten a few closed comedones (?) their like little headless pimples on my cheeks. They aren't too bad but they are annoying. My forehead is probably the clearest. My skin is a lot less oily which I love because I don't have to worry about blotting my skin multiple times day. I got a few cysts last week that I tried not to pop but I gave in once I saw sign of them coming to a head. I know I shouldn't pop but they hurt so bad under the pressure. They've flattened now and just need to heal.
  16. Not the best lighting to show but those are small indentations and hyperpigmentation marks. Will these fade naturally overtime? I'm still dealing with a lot of acne I'm currently using Klaron lotion morning and night. So far I've used... OTC products Epiduo Tazorac Epiduo Forte Klaron lotion and none of these are helping that much. I have oily skin and a lot of clogged pores and now redness and sensitivity from the epiduo forte which just ripped apart my skin:( I don't know what to do I'm 21 I feel like I shouldn't be getting acne anymore This cheek has no scarring but a lot of clogged pores/blackheads
  17. Benzoyl Peroxide - Week 3

    Hi guys! I'm back and this is gonna be another short entry. I'm starting with week 3 now using BP, but I've yet to see any notable results. I'm using the BP both in the morning and in the evening. The only change in my skin is that it feel a lot drier. I don't know if that's normal or if I'm using to little moisturizer. Hopefully my skin will get better! These are the products I'm using: Cleanser - Basiderm Oil Control Foam Wash Benzoyl Peroxide - Basiron 5% AC Wash Moisturizer - Basiderm Oil Control Daily Moisturizer See you next week! Bye!

But please answer me to clear my doubts.i will be gratful for every answer i will recieve. Thanks ☺
  19. What Is My Next Step?

    I'm a 21 male with acne on my face. I first got acne when I was a preteen and i've never been clear since. I did get it on my back, shoulders, and legs, but that has since cleared up. I'm a vegetarian, and try to eat very little dairy, and don't eat junk food or fast-food. I've broken habits of pinching/touching my face and acne, and by now lost my acne scars. I do however wear makeup, mostly foundation and powder on top of that. I only wear hypoallergenic products, and always wash it off the moment i'm home for the day. I wash my face with facial scrub in hot water twice a day, morning and night, and use a facial moisturizer after because I have very dry skin. (I've tested makeup-free periods of time up to 2-3 weeks, but it makes no difference). In the past i've used peel pads, tazorac, and a bunch of different products with benzoyl peroxide, but all of those dry out my skin a lot and give me redness. My best success has been in minocycline, and it works well in reducing and preventing the severity of my acne. The issue is that I have never taken it regularly, because my dermatologist only gives me 30 days to "take as needed" over 3-4 months. I usually use it all within the first month and a half. We briefly discussed trying accutane a few months ago, but my dermatologist changed their mind because they were concerned it would have reactions to my ADHD meds (Intuniv and Adderall) despite my doctor clearing the accutane as fine. I still have acne. I haven't seen my nose free from blackheads in eight years. It doesn't come in waves, it's constant spots around my face (and earlobes) and they take turns flaring and disappearing. I have a healthy diet, healthy skin practices, and religiously clean it. It DOES spike in severity when im stressed, anxious, and have had no sleep. So my questions are: 1. Is it my makeup? Like I said, i've done makeup-free breaks for weeks and it makes not difference. And I feel very uncomfortable in public without it. 2. Is it entirely stress-induced? I'm always overwhelmed, i'm a working college student, so its unavoidable. Will it maybe go away when I graduate and life chills? 3. Should I push for accutane, or find a new dermatologist that'll consider it? I know accutane is for more extreme cases, but i'm so tired of this... Any advice would be great, as I have an upcoming appointment with my dermatologist in two days. Thank you!
  20. Benzoyl Peroxide - Week 2

    Hello again! So I have used BP for a week now. I don't see any notable differences in my skin, which I'm fine with considering that it usually takes a month before people see results. I'm gonna start using BP both in the morning and the evening from now one. These are the products I'm using: Cleanser - Basiderm Oil Control Foam Wash Benzoyl Peroxide - Basiron 5% AC Wash Moisturizer - Basiderm Oil Control Daily Moisturizer I haven't really changed anything in my lifestyle, except that I'm trying to drink less milk and trying to not touch my face as much. I'll do an update with pictures when I start seeing notable results. Peace.
  21. Not the best lighting to show but those are small indentations and hyperpigmentation marks. Will these fade naturally overtime?

  24. new red bumps everyday

    Hi, I have been on doxycycline for 4.5 months now (been on all other medications but accutane before). My skin is really fluctuating and one day I think my skin on my back and chest is getting slightly better and the next day it has lots of under the skin red painful bumps. I also have lots of blackheads on my chest and red bumps that just aren't going. Alongisde this I have very large open pores on my forehead and 'grainy' like skin on my chin with some red bumps, whiteheads, blackheads and under the skin spots. I have tried so many topical treatments, I am eating and drinking healthier than ever, and I use acne specialised soaps, but nothing seems to be working at all. I have recently been given vitamin d and folic acid and b12 suppliments by the doctors and I am worried this will make things even worse? Does anybody know a way to get rid of REALLY stubborn blackheads? And the best topical treatment to get rid of bumps? I have a cream finacea that makes the bumps turn into scars after like a week but would really like to find something that prevents the spots in the first place. Thanks!
  25. Hello again! So, today I started treating my acne with benzoyl peroxide. The products I'm using are: Cleanser - Basiderm Oil Control Foam Wash Benzoyl Peroxide - Basiron 5% AC Wash Moisturizer - Basiderm Oil Control Daily Moisturizer The cleanser was already foam when you squeezed it out of the bottle so I didn't really know how much to take, but I did use more than 4 ml. Then I used the BP-product and it was a little different from the acne.org regiment. Besides having 5% BP instead of 2,5%, it also had to be washed off after 1-5 min, so I waited approx. 5 min and then washed it off. The moisturizer seemed pretty simple, the only thing is that 4 ml seemed to be a lot, I don't know if I should use less with this moisturizer or if it's supposed to feel like a lot. Also, I haven't used any of the acne.org product so this comparison I'm making is solely based on the regimen video and the instructions. Lastly, If anyone reading this have used or is using these products I'm using feel free to comment how you used them and what you thought of the results I'll do an update in a week or two! Bye!
