Hello! So I've been off of BC for about a month now and.... the results aren't too bad. At first I got a lot off break outs on my chest and neck but now that I'm on my period they seemed to have STOPPED. what.... Hopefully if this keeps up I don't have to go back on BC. That ruined my life in more ways than one. For example, this is my first month in 6 MONTHS without a damn yeast infection. I'm also not as hormonal as I used to be while I was on BC. so yeah all is good! I do have a large zit o
Hello everyone So in the past few days,I've summed up the courage to change my skin routine a bit. Starting with Evening Primrose Oil. I heard its good for acne and for the skin so I said "WHY NOT?!". It was like $6 for a bottle of 75 soft gel capsules at Walmart and I'll be taking one a day with a meal. Hopefully I can get rid of Trinessa soon. Them side effects are the death of me. Secondly, I ordered 20% salicylic acid from amazon, also known as the chemical peel. I read a
So yeah, birth control was the answer to my acne problems. Along with other problems. Mostly acne tho Since I'm on my period and I've been terrible with my eating habits, I did break out a bit on the right side of my face last week. Which got some rude comments from my douche bag coworker. >.> I've been drinking a TON of water instead of sugary drinks and I limit my poor eating habits too. My hyperpigmentation and ice pick scars still persist. I'm deathly afraid of try
So I'm considering doing a chemical peel(s) to get rid of my ice pick scars/other scars on my face. Has anyone had them and what were your results? This is something I really want to do. I think its the final step... I hardly break out and if I do they're REALLY small and along my hairline where no one could see them I have been reading up on the peels but they look really painful and intense. I'm kinda scared of fucking my face up more than what it already is. So yeah let me know
I have three words.... Ice pick scars. I have them now. Merp. Shit keeps getting worse, doesn't it? Now I have to invest in fixing my face.... *sigh* I do have a boyfriend now though. At least one person finds me attractive like this >.>
I found my confidence recently. Acne was finally not a problem. I was smiling and happy and going on dates with wonderful guys. Life was good. Then today one of my close friends saw me drinking a shake and asked why. I replied "I want to look good for the beauty pageant I'm doing next year!" He simply replied "What are you going to do about your acne? Girls with acne never win." And in that moment, I lost my confidence. I couldn't find it anymore. I just put my head down and walked aw
So December 2013 I walzed into my uncoopertive doctor's office with a totally non-acne related problem. Just as my doctor was about to leave me she looked at me and said "Have you ever done anything about your acne?" Of course I go into a 10 minute detailed list of allllll the things I have tried since 2009. She merely looked at me, ignored everything I said, and said "Have you tried Benzoyl Peroxide?" Of course it ticked me off a bit because I mentioned it threeeeeee times in my list of medicat
You would imagine that someone who has gone through acne as bad as mine would understand and comprehend how difficult and soul-crushing it is. I was so wrong. Today, I was on FaceTime with my cousin when she brought up a conversation between her and one of my ex-boyfriends. I had dated this guy for a month, but he was in college and I was in high school so we were in totally different phases of our lives so we broke up. She told me he messaged her and brought me up in the conversation. He
I had my period like two weeks ago, and I didn't break out as much as I usually do. I was really happy about that! But now, I'm breaking out all over again and it really sucks. I have a huge zit under my eye and I'm starting to notice break outs ON MY ARMS. I usally had a few zits on my upper arms but not its spreading farther down and they itch. I don't know whats going on anymore. I wish it could go away.
So I'm on the Herbalife/MultiVitamin regime and I was using -MultiVitamin bar soap -MultiVitamin Exfoliator -MultiVitamin Clarifying Mask -MultiVitamin Toner (Normal to Oily Skin) -MultiVitamin Contouring Cream (Night) I saw no change in my skin and was about to quit Then I saw that they had a daytime moistuizer and a moistuizing mask I added those two on to my regime. ONE week has gone by and the results are magicallllllllllllllllll On wednesday I HAD TWO R
People look at me and think that I'm careless and dirty because I have acne. No one knows what I've been through with acne. It's the worst thing that's ever happened to me. If I could, I would get rid of it. I can only dream of having clear skin. I wish guys would notice me. They see my acne, not the person I am. I haven't been in a relationship in two years. My ex boyfriend never loved me. It's like this acne defines me. It doesn't. But people just can't see past it. I didn't choose the a
I QUIT DOXYCYCLINE. For personal feminine reasons. If you're a girl you know exactly what side effect of Doxy I'm talking about. Lets just say it was pretty damn painful. I'm planning to go back on it again eventually when my feminine problem goes away and I'm no longer paranoid. I also started using Garnier Frutis BB Cream. I love that stuff. Absolutely love it. I wear it to the gym, where I met THE HANDSOMEST GUY EVER! I was working out and I was only wearing BB cream. It doesn't have hea
I've noticed a huge difference In my skin. I don't know if it's the Doxycycline or the benzoyl peroxide. When I wash my skin it's actually SOFT! I was mind blown. I'm starting to work out again (Yay Gym). I noticed less acne when I used to work out in high school. I just wear the benzaclin and a tinted moIsturizer:) sorry if this blog has a lot of grammar errors; I'm using my iPod at the gym.
My Regime Consists of: Doxycycline 100MG twice a day A mixture of BP and Clyndamycin Night time cream: Tretnoin (Retna-A) Cleanser: Olay Sesitive Skin Moisturizer: Pond's/ELF Tintied Moisturizer Diet: I've gone a week without Milk. I work in a sandwich shop that provides free sammiches, sooo I can't stay away from cheese. I hate my face. HATE IT. MY lips are dry. The area around my lips/chin is dry. My eye area is dry. Last night I opted out from using Tretnoin and this mo
Yeah. I'm starting to hate this. Ziana and Tretnoin didn't dry out my skin as bad as it is now. I applied my regular make up routine to go to work and my EYE AREA BURNED. It hurt so bad. It stung to put on primer. I hate this already. I put on some moisturizer instead of Tretnoin on my eye lids. Maybe they'll be better tomorrow? I have two huge zits on my chin. They hurt so much But with make up they don't hurt as much. Nor do I see them Other than those two zits, I seee SOMEWHAT of
So the day is almost over. Well not really. I woke up late and I had to go somewhere so I washed my face and mixed Benzoyl Peroxide and Clyndamycin together and slathered that crap on my face. Then I waited for it to dry before I applied moisturizer and tinted moisturizer then my BareMinerals Make up. As soon as I got in the car, I felt my face BURN. I have a feeling this isn't gonna end well. (I hate you Col, give me my accutane!) I did notice when I woke up that the postules around my che
I saw Dr. Col today. I wanted to shove him off a cliff. He is terrible. He gave me BenzaClin and Doxycyline for a month and I get to see his stupid face next month. I hella out smarted him. I laughed. xD He thought Ziana was Benzoyl and Clindamycin and I said No its not. Then he took out his phone and I was right. Take that! So I asked about accutane. He said we would talk about it next month. He says I have to enroll in the iPledge program and start birth control. I was like what?! Okay lets
So tomorrow is the big day. I haven't seen Dr. Col in like two years. I FUCKING HATE HIM. He had an intern look at my face and he gave me a random medication, which I think was Doxycycline and it didn't even work. He didn' t even care. Then a month later he had me go in for no reason. After that I told my primary doctor to shove her recomendation up her fucking ass because I didn't wanna see Dr. Col. He is the worst doctor I have EVER seen. My last Dermatologist (Which I can't see because I can'
I haven't came on this site since my last entree! I'm sorry! Not much has changed. If anything my acne has gotten a bit worse. I still have the same regime. Nothing has changed. I started working out though! I noticed that when i work out, i break out less. Which is good, of course. But I have a job now, which stops me from having time to myself and coming on here. I went to the doctor today. She perscribed me Epiduo. I don't like BP at all, which I know for a fact that Epiduo contains. I do
Hello fellow users, My name is Jessica, but call me Jessikur, I insist. All throughout high school, I had mild acne. I never really paid attention to it. I washed my face, put on mild acne medications and went on with my life. It wasn't until my Senior year that the horror began. I had a serious boyfriend, I was stressed about school and drama, and all that good stuff. My face.... became the Sierra Mountain Range. I broke out horribly around my chin and cheeks. My forehead too. It was my wor
