Hmm maybe you are right, I suppose we are different but skin is skin lol! 

 

Yeah I know! I eat veg, meats, breads, fruits, and thats about it to be honest! yeah you can do, although you have to have been ingesting dairy for 6 weeks prior to a blood test, or it wouldnt prove anything as its not in your system, and i know i suffer with symptoms - bad gas and stomach cramps (not kool) 

 

Thats great i'm sure your'll get in! 18! i am 26 lol! had mild acne since 20- clear skin from 15 to 17, so yeah had it most my life?! 

haha sorry wasn't trying to shoot you down, that was rude of me! you should always chase your dreams, maybe you could be the one to cure it! you never know. 

 

yes the caveman is a very very interesting concept. have a read of it on 'love vitamin' search caveman, a girl did it and got great results. I think it has some merit in it. 

 

not sure what to share lol! just good to have someone who is using the product currently i guess. do you mainly get clogged pores? i've got two white heads right now, but normally its clogged pores, the reason they are relatively clear is because i squeezed them all out recently lol.. 

 

yes thats the catch, if your skin goes from good to worse and then stays worse... bit of a massive gamble really. you only get one face, i've ruined mine enough as it is! yes i paid £8 for the differin which i havent got yet, i swear it used to cost way more. I picked up the cream version didnt use it, and i swear it cost £60 or maybe that was the duac stuff :/

Don't know how you do it, I can't live without dairy! Seems like a healthy diet though, I really should be getting myself into one of those soon. Yeahhh, didn't think of that and noice, stomach cramps and bad gas is the devil. Second to acne, of course. I think the only time I got bad stomach cramps was when I intentionally ate a peanut because I wanted to see if I was still allergic, not one of my best decisions tbh

 

I hope I'll get in: love it so much! Wow, age gap much? I was the same, had perfect skin all the way through secondary school and then started getting these clogged pores at the end of Year 11/start of Year 12. Actually, I used to get clogged pores on my forehead because I used a moisturiser that was too thick for me but it was sorted out quickly with a bit of St. Ives Apricot Scrub. Doesn't do anything now though. And nah, I realise that it is a very big accomplishment but I can try? tongue.png

 

I will certainly have a read, sounds like an interesting concept. I guess it's because you're not disrupting your acid mantle with any harsh products/unbalancing the pH?

 

I love this community: it's great to have everyone in the same boat! Yeah, my acne is purely clogged pores, doesn't look bad at all if you compare it with inflamed acne but in certain lighting... it looks pretty damn horrible. With the Differin, you can actually see the 'seeds' coming closer and closer to the surface, it's so cool because then they just become so much easier to extract without prodding your face in the same place for ages. Sometimes I get spots around my period but that's hormonal and I can't do anything about it.

 

It *is* a gamble, I happy I took it. I was cautious at the beginning because my skin wasn't too bad in terms of redness and breakouts but I decided I really wasn't happy with the way it looked anyway so just threw myself in. Yeah all these medications are so expensive if you have to pay for them, I'm glad I didn't because what if you paid £60-odd for one tube and it didn't work for you? I'd be so mad

haha well I've done it for years now! I like eating good healthy food. It's just become part of my life to be honest with you.  Furthermore it started as another attempt to eliminate the cause of spots.... It was tough at first, in fact you go through an odd foggy head stage, but then when that goes you feel 'awake' again, i think its the bodies way of craving sugar, as in refined sugar.  

 

yea be careful with allergies! thats an entirely different ball game!!

 

you will ! i have faith in you, i bet a lot of dolla on it x 

 

Yeah honestly although some blocked pores have cropped up and a few small white heads over all it seems my skin has enjoyed the lack of washing, i think really its striking a balance, natural oils HAVE to be the best moisturiser... your body is creating it.. 

 

What I am a bit down about is the fact i've picked my skin for so long, I have some small scars/enlarged pores from doing it.. wonder if differin would help with those. i am talking small small indentations that i can see when i look within 30cm of a mirror.. 

 

So, how long have you used the diff for? i picked mine up today! just put some small dabs on some clogged pores, it says on the tube put on effected areas only. I guess the proper way to administer it is to put it on thinly allllll over the face minus the nose and eye area i.e directly under the eyes... would it work using it just on the clogged parts? 

 

so you are happy with results, what do you notice? smoother skin? even skin tone? reduced blemishes? fewer spots/clogged pores? 

 

I guess i am just too scared to start a regime :/ just feel like its a lot of effort/hassel when my skin can be alright, it just gets bad if it gets clogged and i pick at it.. as you can imagine.. 

 

ut yeah dabbed some on a cotton bud and applied a thin coat here and there on my forehead and cheek, chin. 

 

what do you think?

Day 38 | 6th week

 

Amount of breakouts reducing. Dramatically reduced amount of clogged pores all over my face day by day: if go to a window and face side-on so that the lighting is only hitting one side of my face, my forehead is looking pretty much smooth now. Cheeks still need a bit of work but even my left side of my face is starting to smoother too. Really very happy. Still not joking when I say you can see the bumps 'purge' themselves. Now got hyperpigmentation to sort out but that's coverable so it's ok. Let's hope it only gets better from now on!

 

@.JacktheLad.

 

Yeah I went through a phase of eating (relatively) healthy: no crisps, no chocolate, no soft drinks and no ice-cream. It's all still in the house though and I snack whenever I'm feeling the slightest bit hungry, especially when revising. So it's a bad habit I need to re-break haha

 

And thank you very much x

 

Hey, well if the whole no-washing thing works for you, why don't you stick with it? No need for a whole regime if it doesn't help. Besides, I think it's way better for your skin if you leave it (can't say the same for myself though!)
Differin probably will be able to help with those if they are very small indentations, not sure about large ones however. It's made people more oily too

 

Wheey! Finally got your Differin! I've been using it for just under a full 6 weeks and it's the best thing I have ever done. I don't know, I've always just put it everywhere but I guess it would work if you just put it on the affected areas. However, you might have some microcomedones that you didn't even know were under the skin surface so I would put it all over just to purge those too. It's certainly happened with me before.

 

I am very happy with results. Definitely smoother skin, dramatically reduced clogged pores and now that I've been using it for about 6 weeks, I can say that the amount of spots I've had in this whole period was more than I've ever had before? They were small though. But I think I'm finishing up my second breakout period so it's all good. As for hyperpigmentation, I think I'd have to use it for longer to see more of a noticeable difference but it has made my skin tone look a little more even. I think I'll use a specialised treatment for those though, just to speed it up

 

I don't think you need a whole regime if you're uncomfortable with it. If the Differin makes you a bit dry and flaky, just don't use it that night. But I think you still need to wash your face in the morning just to get the residue off. All those treatments that the derm prescribed you are optional, especially if your face is responding well to not using any products at all tbh

Hey thanks for this reply, really helpful. sounds like its working swimmingly for you! i'm very happy, its good to know its working for you so it can work for me.

 

ok so an update to my skin from now 21/02/2014 for reference; The whole 'not doing anything' was just masking up problems, it did however even the skin tone out a bit BUT it just made it clog up and i was getting white heads and congestion which cant be good really can it. Furthermore i had a white head on my forehead near the hairline and then a big white head sort of on my right cheek about 5 cm from the mouth. 

 

this brings me onto right now... I washed, exfoliated my forehead and then shaved, and then put a pea sized amount of DIFFERIN 0.1% GEL on my face, not neck as i never have issues there what so ever. 

 

i agree about putting it everywhere, but cheeks and forehead is where i will be applying it. Unless you strongly recommend neck?

 

you say 'All those treatments that the derm prescribed you are optional, especially if your face is responding well to not using any products at all tbh' 

 

So is it ok to wash it off with just water in the AM? 

 

Is it wise to follow a strict regime i.e the one my derm prescribed? i.e wash > moisturise > sunscreen   AM   and then in the PM wash moisturise and differin?

 

tonight i got very down about my skin, its so blotchy and sh*te bumpy etc from these clogged pores and spots etc :( will it ever look nice? :( 

 

yeah they are really small indentations, the doc said it would help... who knows... :/ 

 

So back on to what just happened now, i have applied differin gel all over my face minus the neck and let it sit, it didnt sting or anything.... i've done nothing else after this... the doctor said to wash it off first week of using it so your skin builds up tolerance to it... 

 

my skin is naturally dry and i wonder if GEL is going to be ok? shall i wash it off for first week of use and use every other night?

Yeah, that's what would've happened for me too if I didn't do anything to my face (especially because I wear makeup). Sorry to hear that didn't work for you sad.png

 

Nope, I don't put any on my neck because like you, never had any problems there; I apply it to my face only

Yep, that's what I do, just water in the AM because I don't want to dry out my face too much with excessive washing with cleanser smile.png Make sure it's warm/hot though (I'm a crocodile because I love washing with hot water)

 

Yeah, I would do a regime but you do need products that are right for you though. Definitely the Differin at night if nothing else

 

Aww no, don't worry, the Differin will clear it all up in no time smile.png Your skin will be nice and then your self-confidence will sky rocket! You've used it once: you've officially joined the Differin club now

 

That's good if it didn't sting, it didn't sting for me either
I never got told to wash it off or anything, I just put it on and went to sleep with it and then my skin felt really soft in the morning. Been doing that ever since. But I have combination/oily skin and you have dry, so it might make you more flaky initially, especially if you're using the gel so I'd say don't wash it off but use it every other night at first. If you find that you can't tolerate it that much, start washing it off. If that doesn't help, switch to the cream version smile.png

Didn't read it properly: yeah, if you don't want all those products, you'd probably just want to wash it off with a gentle cleanser in the morning. If you do use those products, then just water in the morning would be fine, because you'd be washing your face properly in the evening before putting Differin on again.

thats ok (: it taught me to appreciate doing less is sometimes more. I think it helped restore my skin somewhat and now it needs repairing from the acne outbreak and clogged pores i caused.. why cant my skin be normal. 

 

Oh good! its good to know I am actually doing the right thing. only thing is, i dont have those other products as yet! so going to call up tomorrow and do a bulk order, i get 20% discount (: so that would be nice. 

 

for me, even water can dry my skin out, its always naturally flakey in the mornings as it is!  i think its the winter :/ 

hmm products that are right for me... now thats a challenge and a half in itself I don't know if this is even possible lol 

 

Feeling good about joining the Differin club, I like that. I hope it does wonders, i've read for some people results happen almost right away and they don't have a messy IB. 

 

My skin is combination/oily if i don't wash, if i wash it becomes dry. so :/ yeah awkward skin. I plan to use it every other night and see how it goes, and if it starts going red or flakey i'll wash it off. I think the regime i.e spf and moisturiser will help it to stay calm though. i told the Derm i saw at harley street that i picked up the gel version she said thats fine. 

 

you did mention peoples skin becoming more oily, i guess because the differin is helping the pore to operate properly? if so, the gel could be spot on 

 

 

edit just read you added on bit: wait, so even if using moisturiser at night, you wouldn't want to use cleanser in the AM? 

 

hmm well i can try the regime am and pm see how its goes i guess, its what the derm said to do i suppose.. 

 

 

oh and, do you apply the DIFF to your nose? creases next to the nose? above top lip?

20% discount, lucky ducky tongue.png

 

Wow, yeah I do think it's the winter: I notice my skin becoming more dry too
I'm sure there are haha! Just need to find them, it's like trial and error unfortunately

 

I've read that some people don't have an IB either, they're really lucky but even I didn't have such a bad one tbf

 

The Differin does indeed do that, also it makes your skin shed more and it reduces the amount of skin layers you have so that sebum doesn't get stuck anywhere or under anything. Nice ey

 

'Spot' on... What you did, it was there. And I saw it. Probably unintentional but you tend to notice things like that hahah

Anyway, I digress, no harm in giving the gel a try smile.png

 

Oh, I was under the impression that you were just going to use the Differin at night: if that were true then water would be fine, however if you're using moisturiser (especially a hydrating/relatively thick one) then you might want to wash with a cleanser if your skin gets congested easily.

I find that thin moisturisers don't really leave any residue so I don't bother with cleanser in the morning - never did, even when I used to use it at night smile.png

Sorry, I keep missing things out and I can't edit my own posts for some reason :/

 

No, don't apply into the creases of your nose or too close to your mouth, it will make those areas flaky to no end

aw bless you i think its because you have under a certain amount of posts? 

 

Its my faults for asking too many questions all over the place! yeah i get 20% discount because my company has a deal with the other company!

 

I agree it is trial and error, sadly for me its all been error, everything has clogged it up and i've picked it sad.png so sad. I wonder if the IB inflames spots? from what I read in the instructions of DIFF is that it soothes and calms inflammation! 

Thats kool how it does that, I think the problem we both have is that the skin keratinises too much and thus clogs up. 

 

Yeah I will use the skinceuticals phyto corrective stuff, which i believe isn't thick or heavy, its a gel ? i think. so water as you say will or should be plentiful, unless it feels it needs it. 

 

haha yeah was a bit of a pun wasnt it, spot on!

 

 

edit: Hey sv, just ordered those products! came to £125 but with my discount including postage £60.  (That is 20% and minus the £25 refundable consultation fee) 

 

pretty good huh

I am sad that i caused enlarged pores either side of my nose where as before it was perfect skin.  I think its because i started shaving there and it irritated the skin. Then the time i used a thick moisturiser clogged it up and i squeezed all the black heads out and used an extractor. 

 

i wish more than anything i could undo that damage, i wonder if over time using differin etc will fix that area, or perhaps i'll need dermapen or a laser? sad.png so depressed every time i look back at old photos before this. not sure if this is fixable?

Really? Ah that's frustrating

Nah, it's not your fault haha, I like trying to help, don't worry!

 

Differin will absolutely soothe inflammation and redness, it did for me! The spots I got came and went in a day! Max. two days, so for one day my skin would be a bit spotty but the next day after applying and leaving Differin on overnight, they were gone, apart from probably a faint pinkish mark.

Spots (with a head) would also develop throughout the next day and I could squeeze them at night and then they were gone. It's so quick, honestly. I think the majority of the redness I actually got was from extracting clogged pores: it did help massively but I just made the area more inflamed for a bit, so then I needed more Differin to help calm it down, which inevitably took longer. This was at the beginning of this week. Now that I have stopped prodding and poking at my skin so much, my face does look so much better in the mornings and evenings.

I heard that as well: pretty common actually

 

That Skinceuticals stuff does sound pretty good actually, may have to give it a try because I'm intrigued now: I've heard good reviews. Also the La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo is good as a spot treatment and you can get it for Boots, £13.00 for 30ml.

 

That's such a good discount! Couldn't imagine spending more than £100 on skincare that might not work for me, bit of a risk but hey, can't go wrong for £60 I guess smile.png

 

Aww no, you might have stretched them over time, I don't know whether Differin helps for pores unfortunately because I have never noticed mine and therefore not had to do much research for it sad.png

 

I know that using an egg white face mask will temporarily reduce the appearance of pores though

Yeah its the way this website is made! keep posting lol

 

thats right, the redness in my face seems greatly reduced. cant wait for it to rid these clogged pores as well! crazy how they came and went in a day. 

yeah well the only advice i can say about picking is.. dont. something easy to say and *impossible to do. 

 

yeah the skinceuticals sounds good doesn't it, apparently its good for reactive skin, and helps break up pigmentation from sun damage and PIH i would imagine?

 

what does the La roche stuff do? is it a BHA/AHA? Its great discount! I think although i will have all these products, I am thinking of obviously following a regime but i think i will 'listen' to what my skin feels like before just blindly doing the regime day and night like a chore. i.e one night i may not need to use cleanser if not using an SPF in the day. 

 

Yeah they probably stretched over time. the left side is notably worse than the right. they got clogged up with sunscreen on holiday and persisted to produced inflamed white heads which i squeezed.. needless to say its obviously damaged the surface. I hope Differin will boost collagen and improve it. I guess time will tell. 

 

interestingly i have been doing a fair chunk of reading up on scars today and how to heal them, one thing i came across was copper peptides... apaz they do crazy good things for skin. have you heard of these?

The clogged pores will go smile.png Yeah, I thought it was crazy too! At least we know it's doing *something* hey

It's so easy to want to extract the clogged pores when you inspect your face in the mirror, when they've got a little indent in the top so I'm trying not to look so much in the mirror. It's working, I'll tell ya that

 

The La Roche-Posay contains niacinamide, a type of anti-fungal called piroctone olamine, linoleic acid and LHA. The latter two unclogs pores apparently while the niacinamide and the anti-fungal reduce/stop bacterial proliferation. Never tried it, seems good though; I've heard a ton of good reviews on that stuff. Been too stingy to pick it up though hahaa

 

That's what I do, I use different products/omit products if I feel like my skin doesn't need it that day.

 

It's probably because you had the sunscreen on and also you were sweating (if you were on holiday)? So that combo may have clogged them. The middle of the face is obviously more prone to being oily

I've done a bit of reading about retinoids and they do unclog pores, address pore size and boost collagen and it's also an antioxidant. Pretty cool stuff, maybe you'll actually have a bit of luck with this, I have my fingers crossed for you!

 

I have heard of copper peptides while browsing around the site actually, but never really read about them. Now I'm curious haha smile.png

SV... just had a shower after a work out, and this hard/white head has come up like a mofo... i mean i saw a red patch on my forehead for weeks... and this differin must have released it already!! 

 

its still under the skin, its very very close to the surface, almost begging to be popped.. i was so so so so so close to popping it but i used self control and left it. I refuse. I want the differin to kick its ass.

Yeaahh it's Vitamin B3 smile.png

 

And wow! That's really fast actually and hahah if it was me, I would've popped it because 1) I have no self-control and 2) I would wanna make sure it was gone by the morning tongue.png

But yeah, I totally understand why you would wanna leave its fate to the differin hahah :L

Well... it was day two technically for that spot because i 'spot' treated it. but still.. thats a bit crazy! 

 

so my question, what happens if i don't squeeze it? where does the white shit go? if differin brings it out then does it need a hand or?

I have no doubt that Differin will bring it out but if it's close to bursting then you might as well just give it a hand (no pun intended). Otherwise it might just pop by itself onto your pillow whilst you're sleeping hahaa
I have never let a spot hang around that long to find out though!
