Making My Own Regimen

28 June 2013 - 07:05 AM

I'm 15 with acne thats I would describe as mild and close enough to moderate.

I have it pretty much under control with:

 

Day:

Cleanse with acne.org cleanser

Moisturise with acne.org moisturiser

 

Night:

Cleanse with acne.org cleanser

use Duac once daily gel

Moisturise with acne.org moisturiser

 

I was using isotrexin, when my prescription ran out I stopped using it and I had a pretty bad breakout after a week.

My doctor then prescribed me with duac once daily (5% BP, 1% clindamycin phosphate)

and after about two weeks im really happy with my skin in terms of acne.

 

The thing that is slightly bothering me is acne marks, so i'm looking for something to get rid of acne marks and get rid of redness if possible?

 

Im also wondering do I need to add a toner and/or exfoliater to my regimen?

not even fully sure if they would be of benefit to me.

 

So after all that my general question is: What should I add to my basic regimen bearing in mind that I want to remove redness and marks.

 

note: I don't think I have acne scars because the doctor said to me when prescribing duac "I have no reason to worry that you will have significant scarring in say 10 years", although it kind of worried me that he brough up the subject of permanent scarring because I was never worried about it.

Replacing Bp With Isotrexin

31 May 2013 - 06:25 AM

Hey, I went to a dermatologist about my mild/moderate acne in september and he prescribed me with Isotrexin and Tetralysal to use both once daily (Isotrexin at night and take a tetralysal in the morning).

I recently got the acne.org cleanser + moisturiser.

I am using them with what I have been prescribed and I'm wondering is it as effective as using BP?


Using Moisturiser With Isotrexin

12 May 2013 - 06:09 AM

I am buying this moisturizer and cleanser:

http://www.amazon.co...e/dp/B000052YP1

http://www.amazon.co...r/dp/B0081E6X1W

 

I am planning to cleanse once a day and moisturise twice a day.

I usually shower at night, apply my isotrexin and sleep. I then wash it off in the morning.

 

Now I'm planning to shower, cleanse and moisturize. Then apply my isotrexin.

Is it ok to apply isotrexin on a moisturized face?
