In Topic: How ya feelin' about your acne today?

I am posting way too much on this board. Procrastination....


Lilly75, what about topicals? Tazorac worked miracles for my cystic acne! I am glad that at least my acne isn't painful anymore...


Also, I don't know how many of you are under 25, but good news! I just found out that adult acne is over 25 only, and there's still a chance that my hormones will balance out and acne will stop being a problem within the next couple of years. That's so exciting! I hope I don't have adult acne :\

Haha I waste too much time on here too sometimes...

I didn't actually talk to my doctor about topicals... I've used Duac in the past and other BP based products / gels - they did help but I was only ever clear completely if I used them with antibiotics. My skin doesn't seem to respond as well to SA as it does to BP. But I'll remember to ask about other topicals when I see my GP again in a few weeks. (Thanks for reminding me! tongue.png

 Try spiro + birth control combo and talk to your dr about accutane. Accutane works.

Woke up today and my skin looks okay. Kinda shiny from using jojoba oil, but it looks...shiny in a healthy way?


I really like it to exfoliate with. It seems to wipe away dead skin, I love it. 


I hope to order some BP this week to try and get myself clear again...

I've seen a few people say that they use jojoba oil to exfoliate... how do you do that? Just rub it on your skin and wash off?

jojoba oil is amazing you can wash your face with it. i wash my face with jojoba oil everyday.

Hi just wanted to let you know i have done Accutane twice as well (2010 and 2012), and i'm getting hormonal breakouts starting the pill again (2 months in). I'm going to push through and see if i can clear up without accutane. The doctor prescribed me Duac gel which is a topical antibiotic and BP gel, i find it really helps with the deep cysts and painful pimples. Make sure you use it with a good moisturiser and perhaps wash your face with jojoba oil as well because its drying.


Best of luck
