6 Weeks Of Differin 0.1

10 September 2014 - 02:08 PM

Hi everyone,


I have now been 6 weeks of Differin 0.1 but haven't really seen any change so far.

I don't so much have acne but I have a very uneven, patchy complexion, oily skin, large pores and blackheads.

I just wanted some reassurance that I should still keep going.

I haven't really received an IB. I only got an acne break out the day after I went out for a work night and I think that was most probably due to drinking a fair amount of alcohol.


Is or has anyone been in the same position?


Thinking About Getting Hormones Tested

17 July 2014 - 03:00 PM

I am thinking about getting my hormones tested but I was wondering if someone could outline the procedure. What actually happens and what is actually tested? I know that hormones can definitely apply to women due to cycles but I am male. Do male hormones fluctuate?


Any information would be great. Thank you.

Finding A Dermatologist

14 July 2014 - 02:30 PM

I'm not sure where this so I'll put it in the general forum but what I'm looking to do is find a qualified dermatologist to look at my skin and give me me one on one advice on what to do next.


I'm sick of trying more and more things and seeing no results so my question is how do you guys go about finding someone? Is it just a google search? I want to find someone who is actually good at their job rather than someone who has average experience who will take my money and offer medicare advice.


Any replies would be grateful, thank you.

Nettle Tea

30 June 2014 - 02:38 PM

Hey everyone,


I've decided to start drinking nettle tea as I've heard it have some skin benefits.

Has anyone had any success with it?

Are there any side effects?


Also my main question, how many times a day have you had it? I'm thinking of 3 times a day. One for every meal.



For Those Who Have Tried Finacea

21 May 2014 - 02:45 PM

Hey everyone,

So what I've been trying to get rid of is red uneven skin tone, blackheads, oily face occasional breakouts.

I have started using Finacea and am now on day 5. I've been applying it after I shower in the morning and before I go to bed.


1. At the moment all it has done is broken me out like crazy. Did this happen to anyone else? If so, how long did it take for it to stop?

2. My skin is now really dry and tight. My face actually stings a bit throughout the day. How long does it take for this to subside? I don't want to use a moisturiser in case it breaks me out more.

3. When I put the gel on it stings my face and itches for about 40 mins. How long is this meant to last for? Anything I can do to minimise this?

4. Has anyone had good results with this. If so how long did it take and how many times are you applying the gel?

Thank you
