Will Accutane Hinder Athletic Performance?

I am very into high intensity physical activity such as Basketball, weight lifting, and heavy plyometrics, and i was wondering if being on Accutane will reduce my performance in any way. Thanks

Why Does My Face Sweat So Much?

13 April 2014 - 04:05 AM

My face seems to sweat so easily. I wash my face in the morning and then if i walk briskly to catch a bus my forehead would start to bead with sweat (sport and exercise is my life by the way so its not because im unfit!). I am a twin and my brother doesnt seem to have this problem and isnt as oily as me either. I think this may be because of all the chemicals i have put on my face in the last 3 years. 

Eryacne, Differin And Minocyclin Log

06 April 2014 - 02:21 AM

I started this just to log my own progress because in the past i have used products which have cleared up my skin, yet i change products very often to experiment and have forgotten the specific details. I have been the the dermatologist and was prescribed: Eryacne, differin, and minocyclin for 6 months. I have mild acne.


Morning: Effaclar cleanser + Eryacne

Evening: Effaclar cleanser + Differin

Morning: Repeat

Evening: Effaclar cleanser + Moisturiser 



Week 2

- Spots on chin have faded slightly 

- red marks on cheeks seem to have increased which is odd

- redness increased

- spots on forehead appearing


How To Use Eryacne And Differin?

15 March 2014 - 10:09 PM

So i got prescribed both Eryacne and Differin last week but the doctor didn't fully explain how and when to use it. The instructions on the Eryacne say twice a day, and Differin only at night. Just using the Eryacne and then Differin over the top of it at night seems like it might reduce the effects of the Eryacne. Thanks

Azelaic Acid Conteracts Aha?

12 March 2014 - 03:50 AM

Currently i am starting off with a salycilic acid wash, azelaic acid cream, then at night AHA over the top or troubling spots in small amounts during the day also. I was reading and discovered what azelaic acid actually does, which is slow down the rate of cell turnover. However, in conjunction with AHA which is meant to increase cell turnover i was wondering wether they will not work very well together
