I'm starting on Friday, and I just wish I'd done this sooner (ie. when I was at uni). I was actually referred to a dermatologist whilst at uni but he put me on Epiduo which helped but didn't work, I wish I had gone on accutane instead now.
Sorry I don't have any good advice for you, good luck whatever you decide!

-I controlled my acne after cutting off whey protein, after 4 months it came back.
-Then i tried an strict paleo diet, it worked. But the ocassional few pimples didnt let my PIH fade
-I wasnt happy with my routine, coudnt drink with my friends, eat different food and the worst: i was loosing confidence
-When my PIH was fading, i broke out, because i tried vitamin C to end with the ocassional pimples, which might cause stomach irritation=break out
- I wasnt happy because of my diet, just broke out, and i started accutane asap.
- Currently, im taking accutane even thought my acne is mild, but with persistant PIH, just few weeks left, no more pimples anymore.
"If i had a wish, i woudnt ask for flawless skin, I'd ask for the maxium of confidence"
Poeple think they are going to be happy and confident if they get rid of their acne...well..they are totally wrong

I persist - I persist - I think I'm hiding
I've lost my soul - No happiness
I FEEL SO...
Are you ashamed
- of what you've become
You call my name ---
You call my name --- I try to run
I've lost my soul --- no happiness
I FEEL SO...

Try avoiding high gi foods, dairy and too much caffeine. Acne is a hormonal thing and they all affect your hormones in a bad way. Drink plenty of water.
Interesting article with more information here: http://www.purelynat...t-causes-spots/
Be sure to get calcium from other sources.
Wash your face twice a day with something gentle. A lot of products aggravate things. I like this cleanser http://www.purelynat.../acne-cleanser/
Also moisturise only when your skin is getting too dry (which can be a lot if you use harsh products). Max twice a day.
Be sure to use a non-comedogenic moisturiser (will not clog your pores). Hard to find but this is the best thing I have found in 5 years, http://www.boots.com...11051#container
Personally think drinking alcohol is okay ( have really acne prone skin), its more what you drink (try stay away from caffeine and sugary drinks).
