God does not punish us. God is not "warning" you by giving you acne in any way.

In Topic: Done With My Accutane Journey! (Pics)

Just wondering what your using now that your done. My derm gave me no advice at all!

 

Been off of Acne.org for quite a while due to school being in the way (and social life obvs tongue.png) but this is what I do now:

 

I still have some red marks mostly on my cheeks, but after 3 TCA peels I decided to try a more natural approach with my skin due to it being so sensitive and all. I began using Aloe Vera straight from the plant (I extract the gel myself) and apply it twice a day (morning and night). I've used it a week so far and it is absolutely amazing. I've seen my skin improve greatly in appearance. My overall skin color is finally starting to match my neck color and so on. 2 days ago I drank a little too much liquor which gave me a breakout today, but the Aloe helps a ton.

 

Trust me mate. If you have the red marks, I suggest you look into using 100% all natural Aloe Vera. Go to your supermarket, buy the leaf which costs like $2, wash the outside with water, cut it in half, and scrape all of that gel into a plastic container. Put some on your face and store the container in the freezer. You will see results. Hope I helped smile.png



>>Wow, it feels as if you and me have the same type face, I had real bad acne under my jaw line and cheeks, it really takes a toll on your confidence and makes you depressed if you let it get to you. But its so hard to ignore it, acne has got to be one of the toughest things to go through, almost harder than cancer imo because cancer you still look fine on the outside, severe acne you walk around and you get looks, and in this day and age appearance seems to be everything to people.

 

Anyways, my face looks kind of like yours does currently, alot of scarring, starting my second month of accutane, two 40mgs a day. Still have some active acne left but its starting to go away. What im wondering is I have alot of the scarring/hyperpigmentation as well, what are you doing to help get rid of it and if you are doing anything is it working? Because you arent suppose to do anything for scarring for up to 6 months so they say. Any help would be nice

 

Well I suggest you don't do anything to your skin while on Accutane. Just leave the medication function. Afterwards, wait like 6 months and ask about a TCA peel. It won't help much with the red marks, but it will surely help on the skin's texture and overall scarring. After, I suggest you use Aloe Vera gel straight from the plant. Do NOT buy the gel; get it yourself. How? Buy the leaf at your supermarket (it's really inexpensive, like $2), wash it on the outside, cut it in half, and scrape off all of that gel into a plastic container. Put some on your face since it's fresh when you just cut it, and store the container in the fridge.

 

I've used aloe vera for around a week so far, and it's done wonders. I'll post pictures whenever I can.

 

 

I heard about a soap that helps with the skin, Called "The Miracle Bar" - *Moderator edit, URL removed - read the board rules*

 

Its an all natural soap, amazing ingreadients and I emailed the creator of the soap and he says the soap is great with scarring and he claims that his scars are almost completely gone from the soap alone. Check it out.

People get to scared to easily about the "side affects" dont think about em and nothing will happen. Been on for a month and only thing thats annoying me is it kind of turns your skin a hint of red and dryness. But in a year looking back we will all be glad we did it.
