2014 Regimen

Two years have passed since my last blog post. Crazy. I never come to this site anymore BUT that is not to say that I don't appreciate everything it offered when I was in need. I found comfort here when I was depressed and feeling isolated, as though I had no hope to cure my severe acne. This community rocks because at minimum you know you are not alone. My routine has changed as my face has changed. It is very rare for me to get one cystic-type bump on my face now. I break out a litt

My Natural Regimen

I've come a long way from the days of prescription cleansers, pills and topicals. Some were helpful but all were harsh on my skin. Now that I'm out of the severe acne phase I'm trying to care for my skin naturally. Here is my nat. regimen: Morning - Rise and shine with a splash of warm water on the face. Apply moisturizer afterward. If I have a small breakout, I'll put some aloe gel on first and then moisturize. Afternoon- If needed (usually in the summer) wash with Dove sensitive skin

Vitex -My Hormonal Acne Helper

****EDIT 09-29-2012 I still take vitex daily but after moving (which kind of changed my diet) I had some small cysts popping up. Not cool acne, not cool! This finally led me to consider the role of sugar and dairy in my diet. That blog post coming soon******* Hi I wanted to add my support for vitex! I have not seen a lot of posts about it on Acne.org and I wanted to get a conversation going since I truly believe in it. I've been using vitex for the last six months and it has worked well for

Acne Makeup

Even though I don't wear makeup often, I still like to put some on from time to time. A couple of years ago I did a purge of all the un-skin-friendly makeup I owned and only kept the good stuff. Here is what I put on my face. Bioderma ---Link to product: here Pros: I like Bioderma because I'm guaranteed a product that won't clog my pores. I've used their sebium facewash, sebium moisturizer and photoderm tinted face cream SPF50. I started using this brand because my derm recommended it to

Skin Update And Natural Remedies That Work (For Me At Least)

I don't know about you but I've begun to be more and more skeptical of all these companies that sell me crap to put on my face and hormones to put in my body all for the sake of treating acne. Why do we constantly have to buy things to fix ourselves? Why are these expensive treatments rarely a long term solution? The more I research and experiment with natural products the more I learn of their powerful healing properties for the body and the skin. So with that said let me tell you where I'm at

Severe Acne Skincare -Do's And Don'ts

In the past I was truly ignorant in regards to taking care of my skin. I knew nothing about acne and what contributes to the problem. So, looking on the bright side, having acne forced me to learn how to care for my skin. I'm not an expert but I've found a few things that work for me now and definitely changed how I approach cleansing/drying my face. So here is what I did in the past that definitely didn't help my skin: Using a towel to dry my face. Sleeping on the same pillowcase ever

Review Of Everything I've Tried. Antibiotics, Creams, And Home Remedies.

THE BEGINNING: Rx run around Olive oil face 'wash' - I must have been desperate for trying this. You'll see people post about this home remedy on this site. My view: PLEASE DONT DO IT especially if you have severe acne. I feel embarrassed to say I tried this but I just didn't know what to do and I guess we all want to believe that something 'simple' will fix us right? I'm pretty sure this helped move me from mild to severe acne. Gulp. Bactrim 80mg - No negative side effects but also did n
