Hey everyone. Not sure if the same people are still hanging out here, but I wanted to drop in and report that I am happily still clear. :) The scars and discolorations have faded quite a bit within the past year thanks to argan oil, grapeseed oil and the AHA lotion. I still have some pretty bad scarring around the edges of my mouth where I always got the huge cysts, but it's getting better. I might try the needling thing one day, but I'm not sure.

 

Also, I ended my toxic relationship with my ex and have a wonderful new boyfriend! I left North Carolina and am currently living in gorgeous Denver Colorado, the stoner capital of the world! lol... Life is great and I just wanted to remind everyone to keep hope, always try new medications and never give up. When I first began the regimen, my skin was a red, peeling mess. I have better skin than most people I know now, and I actually get complimented on my "pretty soft skin!"

 

DON'T GIVE UP! :)

 

ps. For those who don't know me, I had VERY severe cystic acne.

Hello everyone. I haven't been to the forum in ages. But I just wanted to report that I still have clear, pretty skin. I was one of the people who was on here feeling suicidal as recent as a couple of years ago. IT CAN AND DOES GET BETTER! You just have to find the right medication for you. I've been doing the regimen again for a couple of years now and my skin is crystal clear. I also got over an eating disorder *(related to trying to cure acne through diet) and started enjoying foods like cheese again. These two things made a big difference.

 

Please don't give up and please don't listen to bullshit like in the original post here. You are not born with acne and you will not have it your entire life. It's a condition that needs to be treated, just like any other medical condition.

That has happened to me as a result of the regimen, too. :) It's the best feeling when they can't even tell you ever had acne and actually think you have better-than-normal skin! We fought hard to get here. We deserve it! :)

Well I think I can finally say I have found my path to clear skin. It really feels like I have risen from the fucking dead.

 

I'm so happy for you! :) :) :) Please, do share!

Can someone please kill my mother? I have one nodule forming and a pimple! After days with non inflamed acne barely visible around this time of the month i was starting to gain my self confidence again. And she gave me this bread (i ate it because she didn't even cook and had nothing else to eat-except of course dairy or corn flakes or egg etc) and a teaspoon of "try and tell me what this is"-sesame seeds that i know they cause nodules to me! While i was thinking all these, drinking a spearmint tea to help with hormones she told me.. "are you drinking this thing again? it's morning!". She just doesn't want to cure my acne because she THINKS that there is nothing wrong or i should go to a dermatologist (yeah i did and guess what-nothing worked except spiro which my dermatologist didn't want to prescribe!). O hate her. It is so hard to keep away from things like bread or dairy and she asks all the time if i want to eat them...

 

That sucks, I'm sorry. Have you thought about talking to your Mom about eating healthier in general, not only for the purposes of acne. What about going with her when she grocery shops and picking out veggies and healthy things for yourself? You could even offer to cook dinner a few nights a week.
