So fed up and sad, the right side of my chin is constantly broken out in lots of small red spots. Plus today I have a large sore papule too. All I can think is I have to go to work looking like this and see people. I look and feel shit and it seems never ending

Bad Skin Week.  I stopped BP on certain parts of my face and as predicted, i have broken out in red mosquito like bumps that itch.  Damned if i do, damned if i don't....sigh

Feeling pretty crappy this morning. Went down the natural route a few weeks ago and after three years of slathering chemicals on my face, I went cold turkey and my chin is breaking out SO badly. I refuse to look in the mirror, I hate how acne is controlling my life. I have a family party this weekend and I just know I'm gonna make up some excuse not to go because until my chin starts looking better I'm stuck at home. I wish I didn't feel this controlled by acne :(

Not good. Just looked at my mirror and I feel disgusted. And to think that the other day I was so feeling good with myself, but now I'm having my "off days" again. :(

Ugh I can feel a couple of deep breakouts coming up on my chin :/ I'm blaming stress - I've been a mess this week ha

Perfect timing too... Hoping they calm down before my birthday next week in case I have time free to go out and do something for it. Slapping on some AHA and BP and hoping that helps (giving AHA another trial - don't think it does much for my face but dry it out a bit more unfortunately). 

 

 

Hang in there everyone - hope you're all feeling better and seeing improvement with your skin soon comfort.gif

:( sorry to hear that

Is the regimen becoming too irritating for your skin now?

Really hope you find something that works for you soon!

first if you just started it takes a week for you skin to adjust to any new cleanser and I would not recommend a Bp cleanser!!! No no no that's far to irritating and drying. It's better to use a gentle cleanser like cetaphil and 2.5% Bp and a moisturizer I do suggest the Bp from acneorg but I tried a sever acne treatment from walmart that had the Bp wash toner and Bp moisturizer and my face went bizurk and dry and more acne formed I used it for a couple weeks

have you tried acne org products they work really well I had acne since 14 and been struggling bad once I got to 20 but it really helps but I heard if you quite cold turky that eventually it could clear your acne but I can only feel like it will get worse before it gets better especially if you didn't slowly wing your self of (chemicals I'm guessing Bp?) then your skin is going to be in shock

My acne healing has stalled..  I am getting new acne, which is quite depressing.  I actually formed two new bumps on both sides of my jawline.  I kid you not.. They were located right around the same location as eachother.   It's crazy.   

 

My red marks are still there.  I thought they were fading, but it just depends on how much circulation my face gets.......    O well, I've been down this road many times, and it gets rather frustrating when you get so close to being clear and you realize things are starting over again.  Or atleast, it seems to be that way.

feeling pretty bad about my acne today. Clear skin except for 2 deep cystic pimples. One of them I think has popped. The other one is still growing and hurting more and more.

Feeling a bit more grounded.  For the moment, not thinking about tomorrow and what new joys acne will bring.   Trying to live in the here and now.

I had to completely stop BP and subsequently, the itching has calmed down tons.  I am also taking benadryl.  Not sure what my next steps are but i'm taking it 1 manageable day at a time.

Acne wise I'm clear and feeling happy about that :) Now to figure out if I should use the retin-a in cream form that my dermatologist prescribed me, I've been using the gel form for 15 years now and didn't even notice I was given the cream so I am debating to use it or call my derm and tell him to change it back to gel. I'm assuming it was a mistake.


MORNING

Wash face with Skinceuticals Simply Clean
Neutrogena Sensitive Skin Moisturizer
Take Minocycline 100mg (when needed)

NIGHT
Take Spironolactone 50 mg
Wash face with Skinceuticals Simply Clean
Apply Aczone 5%
Retin-A .1% (waits 20 to 30 mins before applying)


MAKEUP

Origins Silk Screen Powder in Light Spice from Macys

Dermablend Smooth Indulgence Foundation
Lancôme Blush in Shimmery Pink Pool
Origins Lipstick in Buttercup
BareMinerals Flawless Definition Mascara in Black
Sephora Contour Eye Pencil Water Proof in Black Lace

seems I have a never ending pimple again. Keeps refilling with puss. In my mid-30s and I'm looking like a 16 years old with a huge zit on my face. Amazing mood to go to work.

Kelli344- I've tried Dan's products and my skin just doesn't like bp. I was controlling my hormonal acne with AHA but it never really cured me because I have hormonal acne so it's more to do with what's going on inside my body than what I can put on my face :( feeling a bit better now, I think the shock my skin went through when I went cold turkey is almost over, just a few dying spots. Trying to stay positive :)
