Topics I've Started

Epiduo

22 August 2014 - 05:32 AM

I have been using Epiduo once before and It worked very good. I switched from the regimen to Epiduo and had no big problems whatsoever. I decided to quit the regimen because of the dryness, redness and all the time you'll spend on applying all the stuff to your face twice a day. I wanted a more simple routine and Epiduo gave me that. 

 

After a couple of months on Epiduo I had to renew my prescription but It never happened because of laziness and I thought my acne was under control. I decided to replace the nightly Epiduo with the regimen once a day. After a couple of months my acne was back. 

 

I got a new prescription and i'm back on Epiduo for a week now. Right now my skin is in the purging-state and my skin looks terrible. I'm looking forward to clear skin again smile.png I hope it works this time as well. 

 

My current routine

 

Mornings:

 

Acne.org cleanser

Acne.org moisturizer

 

Nights:

 

Acne.org cleanser

Epiduo

Acne.org moisturizer + Jojoba Oil

 

I'll do some updates in this thread. 


Need Advice To Get My Acne Under Control Again

02 October 2013 - 11:36 AM

Hello acne.org

 

I have been using the regimen for 2-3 years with 2-3 weeks off because of vacation. The regimen is usually able to keep my skin pretty clear, but the last 7-8 months I have been struggling to keep clear. I use the full amount of BP and Dans products twice a day. I get zits on my right/left cheeks, the area above the lips and on my chin. It's like theres a few new zits every week and it's driving me insane! It's like my healthy lifestyle is in vain when it comes to preventing acne.  

 

I eat healthy: a lot of vegetables, lean meat, whole grain, no dairy, no sugar and only a couple of cups of coffee a day. I do take zinc 15mg, Vitamin D3 and Fish oil omega 3. 

 

I don't normally eat junk food and if it happens it will be one time a month or so. I do a lot of exercise every week: cardio and weight lifting 4 times a week. 

 

Why the hell am I struggling to keep clear now when I could keep pretty clear before? Is it because of my weight lifting? (I didn't do as much lifting before, but drank whey protein 2 times a day. I don't do that anymore and haven't been doing so for a month). 

 

My type of acne is papules (most) and pustules. 

 

I would appreciate if anybody could offer me a good piece of advice on this! whistling.gif) Thanks a lot.
