I have acne on my neck that also itches; I think it gets dried out but I've had it for about 8 to 9 weeks I don't have any white heads or anything, it's just like little bumps and I've tried Benadryl cream and acne cream and can't get rid of it seems. Can't really see the bulbs but I can sure feel them. I am 30 years old with 2 kids 8 and 7 but also not sure if it my body changing or what. Never had acne on my neck/under chin before. The other though is stress...
It's been 2 months since i've been off accutane and my skin is still amazing. I get the small pimple every now and then but it's NOTHING how it use to be. I miss my hair not getting greasy while on accutane but that's okay. I still have some dark spots and a red tint to my face but i have no active pimples at the moment.
I used to have very oily and acne-prone skin due to my PCOS.
After taking Isotretinoin and DMPA for a year (and a monthly laser/microneedling treatments), I have felt my skin chemistry change as it changed from oily, to dry, to normal skin.
Aside from my pores being physically smaller, I'm now able to wear makeup that used to break me out.
No less than a miracle, I say.
I hope you all are well!
I need help! No one really knows what it is! I had lip fillers more than a year ago and it didn’t show any reaction. A month ago I started getting tiny blisters that turned into yellow crust. After that it spread around my lips. First doctor said its cold sore, second one said my immune system is very low and 3rd didn’t have a clue!?! I’m still waiting for dermatologist to tell me what should I do but no luck yet.
I started to treat lips with a
Acne is still a struggle but my skin is basically clear and I'm using products I trust. I have really oily acne prone skin so treating the acne is a balancing act between drying acne products and hydrating products. Also, I want my routine to be as simple as possible. Cerave is the best brand for acne prone skin and I trust all of their products. Even though I have oily skin, I use their gentle hydrating cleanser morning and night and use their night cream as a moisturizer. I use a benzoyl perox
I thought i would share my journey with how i got prescribed accutane, what it took to be referred to a dermotologist through the NHS and update on my journey throughout my 6 month course!
So i’ve struggled with acne since i was around 13 years old, through 13-17 it was never really proper acne i thought, just the normal few spots some people got as a teenager so it didn’t really bother me too much then because i just thought it will get better in a few years..which it didn’t. It act
Just wanted to drop by with another update. I have been off my birth control now for around four months. This makes me a bit nervous as it usually takes about 3-6 months for my skin to react when coming off the pill, well in my previous experience anyway.
Nothing new to report at all really. Apart from a potential 'big one' I had on my chin around November time, which made me think 'ok here we go'. But it didn't come to anything and I haven't had another sinc
so since i am super anal about my skin, i've collected a multitude of products over the past year, 99% of which i did not even touch- because im too afraid to use it!
so im going to list the products i have in my bathroom cabinet, and you guys let me know what to give a try, and what to throw out.
aztec healing clay mask
paula's choice BHA 2% liquid (had this for 10 months, the most i did with this was smell it)
clean and clear benzoyl peroxide 10% cleanser (not that
so i was washing my face with benzoyl peroxide 10% for a few months, and noticed in that time that it cleared up my skin in this first month, but after that i began to develop larger cystic acne while i was still using the product..... i dont really know why...
anyways i stopped using it altogether and have just been using witch hazel only on my skin for about a month now.
if u read my past two blog posts, i said that im going through a breakout, and i guess i have to use something t
i am just so tired.
but i dont want to die, i just want to be happy.
but i dont know how much more of this i can take.
how much longer until these tears become faded memories and i would have completely moved on,
if i knew what i should do differently, if i knew why this keeps happening over and over, like a broken record for 10 months straight...
do you know how it feels to have every waking moment, for 10 whole months, be about your acne?
i never thought i'd be feeling this way again.
i really dont know what the [censored] is going on with my body.
i thought it was getting better and then just drops back down to the first flare up i had 10 months ago, which was so bad, and made me feel so [censored] disgusting.
this familiar feeling, this familiar sad, horrible, stone in my throat feeling, i never thought i would have to feel again.
wow, i am so freaking sad.
does anyone know any good products that hel
I got a couple dms on the products i used while on accutane. Here are the absolute lifesavers. Kept my skin and lips moisturized at all times without ever over drying. I used the cereve lotion on both my body and my face because it was thick and I needed that. However, post accutane I would not put that thick cereve lotion on my face. I got a thinner one to use. I never used any other acne treatment products or face masks in the chance of over drying my skin.
Just finished my final month of accutane. I am very happy with the results. My derm prescribed me a topical retinal to keep my skin clear so updates to come on how my skin keeps up post treatment. My skin still has a strong red tint to it, but i'm hoping now it will go away. I would 100% recommend accutane to a friend, but i do have to say it was hard for a couple months. months of crying and staying in bed instead of going out w my friends. But now i go to class and go out with my friends witho
So I've I had acne for 2 years now and its gotten to the point where I don't know what to do. I've done everything to try and clear my acne. First of all I have changed my diet I no longer eat Nuts, Soy, Gluten, Carbs, Sugar or fruits High in sugar. I also taken natural supplements such as curcumin, cod liver oil, zinc, green detox, collagen, etc. (all together I probably take 8-10 natural supplements). My breakfast consists of a kale smoothie and eggs whites. Topically I apply tretinoin cream a
