Derm Appt #1: Trinessa, Minocycline And Accutane.

So I've been washing my face with Walgreen's Gentle Skin Cleanser then using Clean & Clear 2.5% BP then Walgreens Alpha Hydroxy Face Cream for the past month waiting for my derm appointment. It has helped a lot, but not completely, which I didn't expect. Anyways I went to the dermatologist for the first time. He said I have a lot of acne that is cystic and severe and that it's too bad to treat with topicals. So I'm going on Accutane next month because I need to be on birth control for a mont

Acne Update #2

So, In my last Acne Update I said I was washing my face with Cerave Hydrating Cleanser then applying BP like a moisturizer then using Vanicream Lite Lotion. My acne has gone away so quickly. I have like 3ish pimples. Here's the bad news. My skin looks like leather. Around my eyes and forehead it is incredibly tight, not flaky but tight. When I smile you can see a BUNCH of wrinkles on the side of my eyes. The skin on and above my eyelids are really tight too. So I've ditched the BP and Cerave. Fi

Acne Update

SO in my last post I posted about how I was still breaking out and I was getting really tired of trying so hard. So I got rid of all of it and have been washing my face with Cerave Hydrating Cleanser, then applying a very thick layer of 10% BP. In the morning I will apply the BP like a moisturizer then apply my Vanicream Lite Lotion(moisturizer), if needed. It will be a week on Thursday(it's Tuesday). My skin is SO much better since I've started this. It just dries up all of my acne and it's be

Fed up, going to the derm.:(

So the reason why my acne is so bad right now is because about a month ago I tried using the ACV toner and it completely broke me out and I know it wasn't purging because I was breaking out in places I had never broken out before. I was using the OCM at the time by the way. After that I kept on forgetting my cleansers inbetween switching from my mom and dads houses(their divorced). So that also contributed to it. I was really having the hardest time to get back to somewhat under control like it

Drinking Lemon Juice to Prevent Breakouts

If you look at the reviews on here for Lemon Juice(as a drink) you will find so many positive reviews on this. So many people have said it's cured or prevented new breakouts so much just by drinking lemon juice or lemon water everyday. I've been trying to go on a more holistic route lately so I'm going to try this out. Yesterday was the first day I did it. I downed the juice of half a lemon, and to improve the taste I added about a teaspoon of the raw honey I use to cleanse my skin. I added the

The Taping Method

Although I have a reasonable amount of live acne most of what looks like live acne are just scars. It's really frustrating because your the only one who knows that it's not acne, its just scars, so it feels like you've made no progress. I've been searching around on ways to get rid of acne scars on Acne.org and came across the taping method. The taping method is a method of exfoliating the skin and removing dead skin cells. What you do is you take a piece of tape, preferably Scotch, that is used

New Regimen: Honey!

I had been using the OCM at night and honey in the morning. It wasn't doing much for my skin and I had been breaking out recently do to forgetting my cleansers at my house and having to use something different so I decided to ditch it all and go more simple. The honey I had been using was Aunt Sue's Honey which is the best raw honey you can buy at Krogers. It wasn't making it worse but it wasn't making it better, and I would still break out. So I went to Whole Foods and got the best raw honey I

My Acne History And What I Have Changed For My Skin Recently.

I've been struggling with acne since I was 11 and I am now 15. It's gotten worse and worse over the years. First it was on my nose then my forehead, then it started on my chin, now theres a little on my temples and its all on my cheeks and chin. So I decided to stop being lazy and finally go holistically. I have tried endless different products so obviously if none of them can get it right then I'm probably not going to cure my acne with products. I was using the OCM at night and honey in the mo
