Week 4: Dry But Improving

The last week has been much better than when I last posted. First, the jojoba oil I bought from Whole Foods worked like a charm! I also learned this weekend that Trader Joe's carries jojoba oil as well so I bought theirs too. The Whole Foods one only dispensed 6 or so drops at a time and I was getting too oily. The Trader Joe's version lets me tailor how much I need, drop by drop. I've found 3-4 drops is more than enough. Anyway, adding the jojoba oil has made a big difference and helped the fla

Week 1

I wish I could say this is my first acne.org blog and that I'm surprised by how badly my skin has been behaving. Unfortunately, acne is all too familiar a story for me. I'm 30/F and have dealt with acne for more than half my life. I've been on Accutane 3x and yet my cystic acne keeps coming back. The most my acne stayed away was for 7-8 years the first time I was on Accutane... but the next two times my acne came back after 2 years. The combination of Retin-A and Duac has helped me stay somewha
