OK, no one is reading this anymore. I started a blog OMG almost 10 years ago EXACTLY, how crazy is that, and now I'm back.
Long story short: my skin is acne-prone, and I thought I could outsmart it, or figure out a new way to treat it, but here we are. I'm back at DKR, after hating on it, wishing I didn't have to be on it. But I do, and it works, and I'm grateful for it. For the first time in a long time I even reordered the BP.
The thing is, I do eventually think I'd li
Bien, como dice el titulo tan solo utilizaré diferencie 0.3 y yo lávare la cara solo con agua, tengo el régimen por 12 semanas, el 13 de julio volvere, les contare que tal me fue, es tan simple mi rutina como ya lo dije, espero que me opere.
Its like EVERY year I come back around the same time because I am battle the same issue ACNE and I’m never consistent with a regime. I find one - skin clear up- I act stupid and stop- and it’s BACK.
Welp this time I am going to stay consistent. I started Acne.org AGAIN, I’ve added BHA (salicylic acid) along with Spironolactone.
Check my page for a quick run down of my trials and tribulations AS WELL AS PHOTOS!

Cotz face natural primer spf 40
Its silicone based. Did not help with foundation application. Too dark for me. Did not break me out.
Supergoop cc cream spf 35
For some reason as soon as I apply this to my face, it starts to itch like there's cat hair stuck to my face. Did not break me out though.
Spironolactone 200 mg per day
I dont really feel its helping with my oil production yet it just destroyed my always on time period cycles ... I have been on it for abou
Hey people i have to refrain from using words like b*tchez n f*~k because ive already gotten two warnings from the site
ok so, i had a good few months.
started eating everything again. gained 20 pounds. yes. 20 pounds, which i am not the least bit upset about. I wanted to gain weight, and i felt so good these past three-ish months because of that. Ive been genuinely happy, eating whatever the f**k i wanted.
now this week, i guess i over did it... let see, three nights ago i ate.
I'm no professional writer. I got that out of the way! Let’s get started! You may say I do not have much acne compared to most people why am I making a huge deal? After giving birth to my beautiful child my skin changed and so did my insecurity. Nothing has helped birth control, topical creams, dermatologist, healthy eating NOTHING is working. I have been on my skincare journey for five years. It has took a lot of my self esteem when the first thing people notice or we feel
Busy med student but finally had time to do TCA cross due to quarantine lock down in my state. Thought it was a good time to finally do a TCA peel and TCA cross. I did a 25% TCA peel then after all the peeling I did a 100% TCA cross on both my cheeks for the first time. Just wanted to share progress pictures. So far I have Before Pictures Day 1 - 8 pictures with some days in between missing because I forgot / looked similar to the day prior.
It's been 8 days but only a fe
It broken me out with tiny blister like acne. I am glad I patch tested it. I think its shea butter..
I originally bought that for my daughter's irritated face because cerave cream cause burning sensation on her irritated face (but ok for her body). this Cica balm didn't burn but didn't heal her irritated face either..
Btw, I decided to stop using tretinoin 0.1 on weekly base.. my skin is too irritated for too long out of a week time..
I now change to use glycolic acid toner fro
Ok, it's been 3 months since the first blog.. I am 99% clear.. just a few closed comedones, one on my left jawline, one on my right jawline and one on my right cheek.. doctor wouldn't extract those for me and told me just let them disappear by using my medications (aczone and tretinoin).. I managed to extract/picked two out from my right cheek. Only these three persisted.. I kept prodding/touching them which I shouldn't.. they are not even obvious/visible if i dont use my finger to feel them...
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
