Back To Benzoyl

So ive been using tto .. and its really good but expensive. So for a while now I was thinking of going back to bp . But initially wen had a lot of bumps (now i have inly scars .im using bp as a prevention )and I used bp it was really bad ... I had burning and itching and redness and dryness .. and it made my pimples real dry n hard and ugly looking .. worst two weeks of my life ... ppl actually thought I had a serious skin condition... like potentially life threatening ... it looked that bad ...

F*** The Acne

I met one of my friends the other day and discovered that he too has developed acne ! So I was telling her about acne.org and encouraging her to take treatment ! So we spent all of five minutes discussing the acne cuz this was her reply : fuck the acne I don't care about it !! I guess what I learnt from her is .. We shouldn't let acne dominate our lives ! We are still beautiful and can have fun irrespective Have a great day guys

End Of Week 3

Im taking amoxicillin 1000 mg a day along with the isotretinoin. My IB was pretty bad .. to the point I felt like staying indoors at all times . Its much better now . I guess the amox is stopping any new breakouts . I have continued with my steaming . And now I also apply tto to my face its 15% diluted.. says so on the bottle . I have stopped using any other chemicals on my face apart from my cleanser I feel its unnecessary . Before going to bed I do apply clindamycin. Apar

So Depressed

Have to go for a party today .. tried avoiding it .. but I couldnt . So now everybody gets to see my pimples and comment on how my skin turned from flawless to rocky mountains in a span of a month and offer advice on how I should wash my face more... cuz if u have pimples it obviously means ur unhygienic !! And to top it off two new big fat cysts .. yay !!

Honey Mask

Today I woke up to less redness on my face which was great .. it could be because : 1. I stopped using BP 2. Im adding tto to my steam water 3. Honey mask Im using a honey mask . ... everyday for one hour It makes skin soft ... and it has antibacterial properties so all in all its a win win If anybody wants to try this what I recommend : 1. Wear a tee which u dont care about much 2. Pull all hair back use a hair band if necessary 3. When applying the honey massage t

My History

I had a little time today and I thought I would write a post about my history I am 21 now and I got acne when I was around 13 and my mum took me to the derm and the derm was like oh that's cuz of puberty hormones doing the tango its completely normal it will go on its own . Aand guess what it never did until I was 18 ... When I started exercising regularly and eating healthy ... I applied nothing on my acne and it went on its own ... I used to get the occasional pimple every now and

I have only redness now ... my mom says my skin is looking much better ... but im comparing it to my pre acne skin and im not satisfied ! Im continuing with the tane... the only change I made was im laying of the BP for a while cuz my skin is a little tender from the peel and I dont want to dry it further with the BP. So im using topica

Dapsone

I did a lot of research on dapsone ...as it is unusual to prescribe dapsone for acne it is mainly used for leprosy . I spent the last two hours studying it ... and my study concludes that its not as usefull as the tane !! It has serious side effects. Also it is used to treat only acne fulminans which is a severe form of nodular cystic acne which comes along with musculoskeletal pain . So all in all I have decided to not take the dapsone at all and continue with the tane .
