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

26 April 2015 - 07:48 PM

Cleared up in one area, breaking out in two others. Very frustrating to say the least. At what point does it end or does it ever. Thank God I anchor myself in things above or else I would have given up and given in a long time ago.

In Topic: Is My Acne Moderate Or Severe?

Moderate. It could be hormonal if your chin is the only place you get it. The regimen took me four straight months to get the results I wanted and my acne was on the lighter side of moderate so you still have a ways to go so don't get discouraged. In the meantime, expect worsening and funky skin.

Did diet and lifestyle changes work for you? And what do you suggest?


Diet definitely makes it worse. I truly believe my acne stems from hormones so unless I get those under control, I'll always break out. Paleo seems to be a good one that cuts out most allergens. Give it a 3 month shot.

In Topic: Tetracycline For Acne? Yes Or No?

Don't waste your time.  Antibiotics for acne will eventually hurt your body in the long run and the rebound effect can be rough.  Ask for a retinoid and an anti microbial such as BP and stay off the oral stuff if you can.  

Reevaluate your diet and stress level and take it one step at a time.

In Topic: Differin Initial Breakout Is This Normal (Pics)

23 April 2015 - 02:06 PM

It is absolutely normal.  I am 4 months in and still breakout but there has been improvement.  If at the end of 6 months the acne hasn't slowed down, I'll try something stronger.  Give Differin between 3-6 months before deciding it doesn't work.  You're still early on.

Good luck!
