Week 6 on differin

Sydney Girl


Well I did end up going off differin for a week due to my skin breaking out like crazy. Well I didn't use any chemicals what so ever during that period. My skin started to look even more like crap. Black heads were becoming more noticeable. I went to the doctor and told him things aren't working for me. He looked at my skin and was shocked and described my acne as "severe" I was shocked by this. I knew my acne was bad but didn't consider it "Severe" He told me I should go on Roaccutane. I said no.. I have depression that runs in my family and I seem to be the only generation that hasn't got this yet. So I told him, I will continue with the differin for the whole 12 weeks and if things aren't better, I will return. So I got home and decided to get serious. I have been eating a really strict diet of fruits and veggies. I have been taking Fish oil capsules and Vitamin E tablets. I have been using differin every night and guess what guys? My acne is clearing =) I have mainly acne scars at the moment and just one active pimples on my face right now. No longer hurts to lay down on my pillow at night. I'm happy and I hope this continues to improve =)

Heyy! .. I'm a 21 male and from sydney too =)Hows it all going for you? .. ive been on differin/duac combo for 7 weeks now, and been breaking out for probably the last 3-4 weeks.The breakout hasnt been too bad, but definately persistent and more pimples than usual. These red marks it leaves suck!Weeks 8-12 are suppose to be the best ones, so soon we should see some good results if its working! .. Try not to miss doses even if you're breaking out, the differin is bringing all the nasty stuff to the surface. Your diet sounds really good and healthy. I dont eat badly but i dont have the discipline to just eat fruit and veg lol.Anyways let me know how its all going for you, Take care =)
