In Topic: Proactiv Plus

28 June 2014 - 08:31 PM

My son has been on PP for 5 months he had pretty severe acne all over his face and it got even worst when he first started using PP, his face was super inflamed and dry it was rough for the first 3 months, right now he is pretty clear he gets a pimple here and there his red scars have faded alot you can hardly see them.


My son has always used the 3 steps twice a day even when his face was like a tomato, you can try cutting it down since your acne doesn't sound that bad.


Don't give up on it I was ready to give up on it when I thought his acne wasn't responding but my son wanted to stay on it and give it more time so I agreed and the results have been amazing.

In Topic: How Well Does Effaclar Duo Work?

04 May 2014 - 11:31 AM

My son was on it for about a year and it didn't work , about 3 1/2 months ago he had the worst breakout to date, he stopped using the effaclar Duo and started using the new Proactive Plus it took over 3 months for it to work but right now he doesn't have any acne just tons of red marks something effaclar was never able to do in the year he was using it.


Everybodys skin is different so it might work for you give it 3 to 4 months and see what happens Good Luck!

My son is having the same problem he is 20 and 6ft I dont know how much he weighs right now but he has definately lost weight since stopping all the junk food, before this it was hard for him to put on weight he would have to eat a ton of junk food to gain weight but that isnt an option anymore, he is not super strict with his diet but his eating habits have improved greatly.


I had purchased a plain rice protein powder to add to his smoothie but he says it taste horrible , I know they have flavored rice protein vanilla and cholcolate which might taste better so maybe you could try that.   Right now the most important thing is to keep the acne far far away.  I  also add walnut oil to his smoothie which helps put more calories and fat in his body its suppose to be good for acne since it  has lots of Omega.

In Topic: Post-Accutane Dryness

04 April 2013 - 04:54 PM

My husband was on Accutane about 25 years ago and his face is so DRY it definately ages you alot faster, doesnt matter what type of cream, oil he applys it just sucks it right up, people need to take this into consideration when they decide to take Accutane, if they are willing to give up all there oil in exchange for no more acne.
