#3361587 I Don't Want To Go Swimming

Posted by Kris1787 on 25 June 2013 - 11:18 PM

I go to my local pool almost everyday and I wear a full face of makeup. However I don't get my head wet. By the time I go home, my face feels so gross from sitting out in the sun and sweating. I hate it but I'd rather do that than not wear any makeup. I'm kinda in the same boat. I don't have any huge active ones, but a lot of tiny non-pustule type ones and redness. Like what you said, try and find a waterproof foundation, or get a tinted moisturizer. I'm actually gonna look into a waterproof foundation now too! Good luck!


#3356808 Tretinoin And Minocycline

Posted by Kris1787 on 10 June 2013 - 08:32 PM

My derm prescribed me those two too. I was put on 100mg and I think it helped somewhat but now I'm on 50mg and its just not working out. I'm on my second month. As far as the tretinoin, I stopped using it because I hated how it makes you break out. If you read the prescription information it actually says your skin will be worse for 8-12 weeks. I was like hell no am I doing that. It's just not worth it to have my skin go through hell for 12 weeks. The tretinoin gave me huge nodular pimples that hurt and stayed there for weeks at a time. I'm going on accutane soon anyways so I'm not doing the tretinoin any more.


#3356805 Did Anyone Out There Get A Bit Scared Before Starting Accutane?

Wow that's great, I will hopefully be starting accutane soon, have another blood test to take and then I will be in the ipledge program. I am going to look into the products you use, thanks for that. By the way I love your user name...Avada Kedavra Acne!!! Awesome


#3349429 First Time On Acne Meds

Posted by Kris1787 on 17 May 2013 - 11:28 PM

Wow, I go back for my one month follow up next week. For me, sometimes I think the minocycline is working and then the next day I get some small pimples. I definetely don't get huge cysts anymore, but the acne just keeps coming back it's very frustrating. One day ill feel so great and my face will feel so smooth and soft and the next day it's like ok I'm ready to do accutane.
