In Topic: Jojoba Oil Not Working

Use Cetaphil dry to very dry moisturizing cream. Nothing else has ever worked for me and I've experimented with the regimen for 10 years. 


In Topic: End Result?

22 September 2013 - 11:01 AM

I started the regimen when I was 20. I stopped a few times to see if I "outgrew" my acne. I'm now 30 and am still using the regimen. I never thought I'd be 30 and still have acne, but that's life. Consider accutane if you like, it's a viable option. I thought I would have the same problem when I went camping, but remember it doesn't have to be in the bathroom especially if you have a small travel sized portion antibacterial soap...


In Topic: Biggest Mistakes People Make to Treat Acne:

I note on the do's and dont's list, that Moisturizing creams are a "don't. I use Cetaphil dry to very dry Moisturizing Cream, because every single other moisturizer I have ever used (and I have tried pretty much every single one in my 10 years on the regimen) don't stop me from peeling. EVerything from Cerave, to Dan's jojoba oil to neutrogena moisturizers do nothing to stop my flaky face. How is it possible that people can use that stuff?


In Topic: Regimen Leaving Big Red Marks

Anyone have any advice?

 

I'm not popping my pimples, nor am I going out into the sun, but 3 months back on the regimen my face isn't clearing up at all and every single pimple is leaving behind big red/dark spots. I'm using only acne.org products and following the regimen exactly.


In Topic: Stopping The Regimen At Some Point?

I started the regimen at 20. I always thought I'd grow out of acne in my 20's. I turn 30 in two weeks and if I stop the regimen my acne comes roaring back. Some people don't grow out of acne, it looks like I'm in that camp.
