Retin A UPDATE!!!!!

I hit the two week mark! To review: I am using Retin A in conjunction with the Obagi skincare system. My skin is so smooth. I cannot believe it. I have had always had acne, at least for as long as I can remember. I always cried over pictures that showed me with clear, pretty skin. My face is in no way flawles after 2 weeks but the improvements are really showing. My friend told me that my cheeks, chin, and forehead were so clear. The Obagi system I beleive is really helping even

For Accutane and DRY LIP Sufferers

Try Lypsyl It is a PURE SWEDISH BEESWAX lip balm. BEST I HAVE EVER USED...I put some on last night after exfoliating my lips...they were super smooth when I woke up.... It is not greasy, but nourishing. It is about 3 bucks, but worth it...much better than BURTS BEES, BLISTEX, or ANYTHING ELSE I HAVE TRIED... TRY IT! You wont be disappointed. I got it at Walgreens.

One Week with Retin -A

So... tomorrow is my one week anniversary with Retin -A. I know that I will not be able to post until Firday or Saturday of this week. My schedule is out of this world. Since I began this journey, no new pimples have popped up. The pimples I did have are either gone, or disappearing. The only one that is really working my nerves is on the side of my face. I believe it is a pretty large blackhead. At least, that is what it looks like. That is the onlyactive pimple I have. The burning

Cetaphil is a life saver

So, I read some blogs and found that Cetaphil is a miracle moisturizer.... IT IS! On top of it (when it dries I apply my gloves in a bottle) and irritation is null and void. I finally dont feel as though a fisherman scaled me and threw me back into the water Today is the end of DAY 5! Whoo-HOO.... UPDATE: nothing new... No new pimples, just irritated skin. With this skin being so red, I am relaly avoiding social events. I am only going to the movies tonight, beca

Is that you Santa?

I look like Santa... I AM PEELING. Bottom line. Due to the redness and peeling the past few days I can not tell if any progress is being made. Today is Day 5. I do not have any new pimples. Most of the pimples I did have flattened. One of the pimples I had prior to the treatment has popped up completely. It was a white head. Overall, i am happy because no new pimples have appeared. The Obagi system... I just use the cleanser (Clenziderm) and the Clear product (bleachi

Day 4: Full steam ahead to a week

This morning I woke up, and face looked.....AMAZING! Okay, I know what you're thinking...that was only 3 days of treatment, how could there be a difference. Here is the run-down... 1. I had no new pimples form.... 2. Still no initial breakout (I am waiting, though)... 3. My pores were teeny-tiny.... 4. My complexion was homogeneous. 5. I still had visible scarring, and old pimples healing, but there was a difference between Day 1 and the beginnin g of Day 4... After waking u

PEELING! REDNESS! AHHHHHH

So, I am a teacher and this is my second day using Retin-A, Clydamyacinn (sp.) and Obagi. My skin is soooooooo red and peeling. It is horrible. One of my students asked, super lod "Why is your face red and peeling?". It must have been horrible because I was near the fron of the class and he was ALL the way in the back of the room. I was thinking, "Oh, my God!" There is no way I can handle the Inova pads in conjuction with the Retin-A Micro and Benzaclin. My face is extremely tight. Pi

Technically, I started some of the treatment yesterday, like the Obagi.... I love the Obagi already....

It is suprsingly very gentle.... The Obagi bleachng cream is okay so far...i have only used it one day...so no results of course.

First Dermatologist Appointment

Hello Acne.Org Members: My first experience to the dermatologist was quite nerve racking. I went in with a lot of expectations for oral anti-biotics or Accutane. I received neither. My acne was not severe enough to be placed on any oral treatments. Therefore, I received a multitude of products. 1. Retin-A Micro 2. BenzaClain 3. Obagi Cleanser (love it already) 4. Obagi Clear (hydroquinone 4%) 5. Inova Pads I have a lot of discoloration from previous acne lesions and it rea
