Not Sure If Anyone Will Read This.

Hello fellow acne suffers. I have returned to acne.org not because I still have acne, but because I wanted to cheerfully say I have ZERO acne and have been clear for almost 1 full year without using any kind of medication. The only thing I use as a regimen is Elizabeth Arden's visible difference skincare line for oily skin. It does not contain any kind of benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid. My skin has never looked BETTER then it does now. All my hyper pigmentation marks are faded and my mild sc

Sooo I Haven't Updated In A While!

Okay so I haven't updated in a while, but I would like to add that my acne is lessening! I am currently on package 4 of Diane35 and I definitely see a difference in my skin. I am still getting pimples but not as many as before, and they heal sooo fast it's insane. Before I got home from school today my face was 97% clear. I only had old ones healing and 2 small active pimples. That is a huuuuge difference compared to a couple weeks ago or in the beginning of the month. Unfortunately when I

Over the years and the effects of acne.

So over the years, acne has really taken a toll to my face. I was examining my face with a super magnifying mirror. I do have scars, they may be very small but I have them. I've recently experienced and learned about hygroscopic raised scars. I have very small ones on my forehead, that I never really thought anything about and I still don't mind them because you cannot see them unless you are using a magnifier. However, this past month I got two fairly large Hypertrophic (raised) scars. One from

S.O.B

I hate makeup! It makes my face feel itchy and uncomfortable. I wish I didn't have to wear it, but my hyper pigmantion marks are disgusting, even some I cannot hide with makeup. I can't wait to go home and wash it off. > NOT having a good day. However, my face is staying relatively clear & very soft. Didn't wake up to any HUGE breakouts just 1 small pimple. I think my pills are starting to kick in, finally. 3 months - Diane 35 1 week 2 days - Septra 1 hour later.. HAHA

YIPEE.

I have to say, I think my regimen is working!! My face looked great today, definitely a lot smoother. I think my previous cleanser was irritating my face, a lot. No new pimples today, just old ones healing!

New Regimen.

So today my mom went to the city and I decided I am going to start a Regimen. While I was on Doxycycline I didn't have much of a Regimen since my face was clear no matter what I did to it. Morning: Wash face with Cetaphil Gentle Cleanser - I used this for the first time tonight and I absolutely love the way it makes me face feel! It's such a soft cleanser, and the smell is good too. Apply Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Liquid Foundation + Mineral Wear

Right side breakout.

Okay, so anyone reading this knows that I had two REALLY bad breakouts on the sides of my face about 2 weeks ago. The breakouts have cleared a significant amount but the breakout on my right cheek looks HORRIBLY painful. There is about 2 very small active pimples and about 3 none active pimples that just sit there, and won't go away and they are all in a row. It looks almost like I got stitches and they are healing in a bumpy manor. Did I mention it HURTS a lot too? Like so much, ah! The only go

2nd package of Diane35 + Septra, Tuesday August 30, 2011

Status of Acne: No new pimples, just old marks and the 2 breakouts on the sides of my face are going away, slooooowly. Progress of Acne: It seems like it is finally starting to get better, but I think that is because I am almost done my period. Acne: Moderate. So my face looks better today, old pimples are drying up and are healing & I woke up this morning with absolutely no new pimples! GOOD. I wonder how long it will last though.

Weeeeird breakout!

I have noticed that the initial breakout on my right cheek area does not want to seem to go away. I have about 3 or 4 active small pimples and they just stay there, no matter how much spot treatment I do! Its really weird, its been about 3 weeks of this. Go away breakout!! jeez.

Another update?

So one thing I have definitely noticed while being on Diane35, & Septra is when I do get a breakout I rarely get those really BIG pimples anymore. Usually it is small ones & whiteheads, something I have never had before. I am definitely happy I don't get those huuuggggeee pimples anymore and I am so thankful for my Benzac cream.

Feeling Better.

I think I've realized why I keep breaking out so badly these past 2 weeks. I am starting to get my period, and usually this happens around my period time. Thankfully I am almost done my period, and I am hoping my face will somewhat go back to normal.

Wow!

So I wake up this morning and I am developing 3 new farely large pimples on my right cheek. They happened overnight!! My skin has NEVER been this bad, ever in my entire life. It is so weird, it makes me afraid to even sleep. I clean my face religiously, I just don't understand.

2nd package of Diane35 + Septra, Sunday August 28, 2011

Status of Acne: Right side of my face where the huge breakout was is pretty much gone, left side is gone just some red spots and dry spots. Pimple that formed on my left cheek overnight on Friday is going away. I think my makeup that I wore that night formed new pimples on my face. The zit that was on my jaw on the left side is also decreasing in size. The 2 pimples that I THOUGHT were forming aren't anything, just me being paranoid, thinking they were new pimples but actually in reality were ol

Okay, calm down.

Okay I took another look in the mirror at my acne, and it isn't bad.. I am being really really stupid. I wouldn't even say it's moderate, its more mild acne. I just have a hard time handling breakouts I guess & it doesn't exactly help that my older sister has perfect skin, & my younger sister who has GORGEOUS skin and my even younger sister has nice skin. My youngest sister has skin like mine, right now it's clear but I have a feeling once she gets older its going to get bad. I rea

2nd package of Diane35 + Septra, Saturday August 27, 2011.

Status of Acne: Breakouts on the side of my face are almost gone, except I have developed a new pimple of my left cheek and I am getting 2 new (pretty large) pimples by my mouth/chin. Other side of my face is better, except I have a huge inflamed pimple on my chin, hurts like a MF! Progress of Acne: NONE. It was clearing, but of course I just keep getting more. Acne: Moderate. NOOOOOOOOOOO! Why is acne so unpredictable? On Friday my face was virtually almost clear! I had only like, 2 or

2nd package of Diane35 + Septra. Friday, August 26 2011.

Status of Acne: Left side of my face is 98% clear, besides my new (suprisingly small) & painless cystic pimple. Right side of my face is 96% clear on that initial breakout, still have like 2 small active pimples. Probably will take longer to clear up. Chin is clear. Overall not too bad. Progress: Septra may be working, my cystic pimples usually are huge & very hurtful but this new one is pretty small and painless, maybe not a cyst? No new breakouts, just dry & spotted face from thi

2nd package of Diane35 + Septra. Thursday, August 25, 2011.

Status of Acne: Almost all cleared up. Progress: Some acne is surfacing but clearing up. Acne: Moderate. Okay, the fair is tomorrow & I am almost cleared up. So far I have not experienced any side effects due to Septra, but I don't know if its working either. I've only been on it for 2 days, so I don't really except anything just yet. I am kind of worried these pills wont work because they aren't DS. I think it should be okay, I have to take 2 which adds up to 800mg/160mg since it i

Update from Septra.

Okay wow, those pills are effing huge!! I can tell my face has stopped swelling already. I had a small pimple near my chin and popped it and it's already gone! It's amazing how much better my face looks compared to on Friday. I've been on pimple breakout lock down, pretty much. I am trying so desperately to get my face almost clear before the fair on Friday. I have to say, I've been doing a pretty good job. So far I don't feel any side effects, except for a super dry mouth, but I've been drinkin

Okay so my doctor prescribed me septra, let's see if it will work! I really hope I don't have an allergic reaction. Once my face starts to clear up I am going to try my diane35 again.

August 23rd, Tuesday.

Status of Acne: No imflamed acne, or new acne. Only healing ones. Progress: Left side of my breakout is 98% cleared up, right side still has a little ways to go. I swear that cystic pimple on my chin is never going to leave! It doesn't even hurt anymore.. its just like sitting there, unaffected. wtf?! the rest of my chin is 99% clear except for one small pimple. Acne: Moderate. So I am not going to take my Diane35 pill today. I am seeing the doctor tomorrow for sure & I am going to

Side Effects.

So I am having a hard time handling this aching pains in my body side effects. I am seeing my doctor either tomorrow or on Wednesday. I am going to ask him about Bactrim, Septra. I've seen a lot of good reviews on the drug and no side effects. I think it might be a better thing for me.
