Probably worst week in terms of new spots and redness. Spots starting to appear on my forehead which hasn’t been the case for a few years. Hopefully this is the medication working it’s way through the less stubborn areas and begins calming down within the next few weeks.
the photos you see were taken in natural lighting aka the WORST lighting other than overhead lights that make my scars light up like it’s Christmas lol.
I suffer from the aftermath of severe cystic hormonal acne that I battled with for many years in my teens. Being the dumb invincible teenage that I was, I didn’t realize what my future face was going to look like by neglecting to get proper treatment and picking at my skin.
I am currently using topical clynd
Skin feels smoother and less sore. Spots showing up in same places with more whiteheads showing but seem to calm down after 2-3 days. Worst week so far following the second week where the skin felt less irritated. These seems to be common with Differin use.
Skin doesn’t seem as dry this week, however still a little sore especially after coming out of the shower and applying moisturiser, calms down straight away though. less spots developed around cheek except for one or two which came Saturday night. Noticing a few spots coming above both eyebrows which is different.
red irritation around jawline (left) and general redness on cheek (right). Three/ four whiteheads developed on forehead. 4/5 whiteheads developed on jawline (left). Overall face quite irritated and feels as though the skin is losing its top layer and the skin feels quite fragile
PHOTOS: I just took these. Im wearing the BP have have a mini breakout (wow... 1-2 pimples is a breakout now lol)
I like to update this blog every time I come back to buy more products. I started in June of 2017 and it's now Jan of 2021!
I currently ONLY use the BP. I still put a pretty generous amount on my skin, but my skin does not dry out anymore. The one thing that sucks is that the BP bleaches anything I sleep in. So I have a designated pillow cover, only wear white shirts or bra
I used to have a clear skin until I turned 22. I thought I was the lucky one in our Acne- ridden family, but no. It didn't skip me, it just took its time.
I am 26 now and still battling acne
Everything changed since then. Before, I had a very simple skincare routine and often praised by friends and family members about my spotless skin and asked about my skincare routine.. which I didn't really have. Just a simple face wash and that's it.
Fast forward to 3 years, acne is still he
I took two courses of 40 mg accutane for 5 months each but acne came back in its nodular and cystic form . So i took 20 mg accutane daily+Azithromycin 500 mg thrice a week and continued this for a month. After that i started taking 20 mg accutane on every 15th day only and things are fine mentally and aesthetically. I am damn sure this will work for other too. These are just my experiences and I'm not responsible for any complications if you do this. So try at your own risk.
I havent upload much in the last months, because my skin was so beautiful. After May i started taking accutane less and less. As you know my dosage was 20 mg per day, but after May my dermatologist advised me to take 20 mg every second day, then every 4 four days, and lastly i took it once a week during the last month.
But i am back -.-
Today I got my first cystic pimple since i stopped taking accutane. It's a bit frustrating, because i stopped taking accutane only like 2 months ago. B
i just wanted to do a little storytelling for you guys, because i know how hard it is to get your mind off of your acne. I also want to use this blog to do something other than whine about myself. I feel better when i write, and if i can make someone else feel better, by making them laugh, or just by helping them not focus on whatever is making them sad, that would make me feel really happy.
im just going to start talking about some warm memories of mine. most of them were from my c
i really cant believe this three headed monster cyst is on my forehead.
there is a quarter sized bright red circle on the surrounding skin too.
so i have this big red spot and three painful bumps clustered together.
i have crater wounds on top of each bump too. i would be happy if at least i got to have a nice explosion of puss from one of them, but NOPE. NOTHING.
im really horrible, this morning i woke up from last night's picking episode and you'd think id finally just

so, i noticed like two of these little blackhead bumps and so i tried to squeeze them because the blackhead looked like it was going to come out but of course
WOW, 3 years off Roaccutane.
I don't even know how I thought of this blog today but it just popped into my head and I said I'd come on and have a look and give an update!
It's actually crazy reading back over my posts. This was where I felt I could express exactly how I was feeling about my skin with likeminded people. Its very obvious that as my skin got clearer and clearer, I felt I didn't need to blog about it! It wasn't on my mind as much.
It makes me quite sad readin
Ever since I was fifteen years old I've been ashamed of my skin, having this disease also made me really focus more on my facial features in general as I was growing into a young adult. And that's when I started noticing how ugly my facial features were even if I didn't have pimples. I started to resent my parents for giving birth to me. It took me almost twenty years to finally understand that I didn't win the genetic lottery. My self-importance doesn't want to accept that I'm inferior because
Hi guys, thought I would update you guys on my current skin. My skins been doing very still since i got off accutane. However, the past months i've gotten pretty bad "maskne" from working in the hospital and needing to wear a tight mask for 8 hours every day.
Well, my skin is looking really, really good. I have one small zit on the underside of my chin, because I rest my face there a lot. Other than that... pretty much no clogged pores, and definitely no pimples. Things just look so smooth, even, and good.
My PIH is also fading, although it is still there. I use AHA every other night; the rest of the time, it’s Dan’s BP with Cetaphil face wash and lotion, twice a day. I haven’t missed an application this whole time, except for one
Long story short. Ive never had acne, just the normal pimple here or there. I began a new moisturizer from Target back in 2019 and it slowly broke me out around my chin. The breakouts kept happening even after stopping the moisturizer. Everything i used, kept breaking me out. I didnt know how to stop it, so i went to a dermatologist. She diagnosed me with acne, and prescribed me clindamycin with benzoyl peroxide, as well as acnefree brand face wash. I used this for about 3 months and i was all c
