#3430083 I'm At The End Of My Rope Here

Posted by UKdreamin on 04 May 2014 - 09:34 PM

Honestly… just give it a shot. I've been battling acne for 10+ years, was on antibiotics, prescription topicals, tried tons of natural and OTC remedies and nothing has worked as good as this. Although my skin is not 100% clear (I'm starting my 14th week now), my skin is the best it has looked in years.. and my makeup applies soooo smoothly now, no more bumps (and if I do have some, they're much much smaller than the HUGE cysts and nodules I used to get)… just give it a shot, I mean, what's the worst that can happen? Spending an extra 20 bucks or so?

Every time I'm on vacation in the caribbean, my back clears up 100% within 3-4 days…. something about the ocean and the sunshine clears up my acne in less than a week. I tried applying sea salt on my acne when I got back home to maintain it, but it never works like the real thing :(

Just checking in, about 4 months into the regimen. pretty much all that remains are dark spots, and I rarely get pimples now

Wow!!! Such an improvement. Your skin looks great! Congrats :)

#3409809 Finally Starting The Regimen

Posted by UKdreamin on 22 January 2014 - 08:44 PM

Hi everyone,

 

So I've finally decided to give the regimen a shot. This is my last straw. I have tried OTC treatments (neutrogena, OXY, proactiv, etc), natural remedies (ACV, honey, etc), oral prescriptions (minocycline) and topical prescriptions (retin-a, differing, clindamycin, clindoxyl) - if this doesn't work, I will be going on Accutane. I have been struggling with acne since I was 12 years old and I will be graduating university in June… far, far too long (which probed me to order Dan's BP - I really want clear skin for my graduation!!) My acne is hormonal - I usually have 3-5 PAINFUL nodules at a time before or during my cycle, which take weeks to leave. I very rarely breakout with non-inflammatory acne. This will be my regimen log, so I can document any progress I experience.

 

One question I have is:

Would I be able to use Retin-A at night, and BP during mornings? The Retin-A is beneficial for anti-aging and helps fade away my scars, so I would like to keep using it if possible.

 

Thanks in advance, and wish me luck :)

Hey! I've been using MUFE Mat Velvet + for 2 years now, and my skin hasn't gotten noticeably worse at all. Just make sure you wash ALL of your makeup off at night, EVERY night, cleanse, and you should be okay! The confidence that this makeup gives me by covering my deep acne scars and active acne is worth the world.

Ibuprofen and sulfur masks help calm down those under the skin bumps for me.




#3391903 Rude People Commenting On Adult Acne

Posted by UKdreamin on 01 November 2013 - 04:19 PM

Sorry you had to experience that :(. I experienced things like that in high school, now that I'm in uni I'd like to believe that people are more civil... Don't you just hate it when you can see someone staring back and forth from your eyes to your acne? Ugh... horrible feeling.

Posted by UKdreamin on 18 September 2013 - 11:22 PM

I'm so happy that more people are giving thyme a try! My thyme tincture is currently steeping, can't wait to use it and see if it helps! FYI, I have moderate acne (2-3 cysts at a time, maybe 1-2 odd whitehead) - but I also have scarring and red marks. Good luck everyone!




#3382231 Bp Out…Thyme In. New Regimen Log!

Posted by UKdreamin on 12 September 2013 - 08:49 PM

Please keep us updated! I am interested to see how this turns out. I have a huge cyst on my upper cheek that's been there for 2-3 weeks, and isn't budging at all.. I'm tempted to try your thyme mix and see what happens!
