Fed Up with this Process :(


hope2013

I'm feeling fed-up with this acne regimen :/

I've been using it for over 7 months. While it has cleared out and purged my skin A TON, I'm still dealing with pores purging and because of it, frustrating red marks. I'm just so tired of breaking out and having to cover it up with concealer and powder... I'm praying that my face will heal and get better so that I can enjoy my weekend.

Has anyone else been on Atralin or a topical retinoid for 7+ months?? I really, really could use advice!

HAVE YOU TRIED USING THE REGIMEN FROM ACNE.ORG?
WHEN MY ACNE WAS MANAGEABLE AND MILD I WOULD USE IT LIKE A CHARM. IT DID DRY MY SKIN AND IT PEALED FOR A WHILE BUT IT GOT RID OF IT FOR YEARS. TILL NOW RECENTLY THAT I HAD A BAD HORMONAL UNBALANCE AND WELL... I GOT A BAD CASE OF SEVERE ACNE. I WENT BACK TO THE REGIMEN AFTER IT GOT BAD, BUT IT WAS TOO LATE, THE DAMAGE HAD BEEN DONE. I WISH I WOULD HAVE NEVER STOP DOING THE REGIMEN. BUT WELL, WHEN I WENT BACK IT STARTED TO WORK VERY SLOWLY BUT MY SKIN WAS SO DAMAGED THAT MY DOCTOR JUST SAID "FORGET IT, WE ARE STARTING YOU ON ACCUTANE," IVE BEEN ON IT FOR 4 WEEKS NOW.

DON'T LOOSE HOPE THOU, STAY OUT OF YOUR MIND. I FIND THAT WHEN WE STAY STUCK ON THE PROBLEM ITS HARD TO SEE THAT IT REALLY INST THAT BIG OF A PROBLEM.
THERE ARE PEOPLE OUT THERE WITH MISSING LEGS OR FEET, ACNE IS ONLY TEMPORARY :)

You're way too hard on yourself Hope. Keep in mind that you may not be clear 100% of the time (that's unrealistic).  If you're having more clear days than not, then consider yourself fortunate.

Hoping you find some peace and acceptance.

I am just going to let you know this right now. Topicals only help the acne about 30%. Its a diet thing you need to change, eating less sugars, processed foods, dairy, wheat all that stuff. Also plenty of water. Now you may need cleansing. You can go to olivus.com and get their olive leaf capsules which always has lessened my acne. Or get Renew Life Candigone and or Paragone , for some reason these seem to help clear my skin. They are kind of expensive but worth it. I notice acne seems to be linked to candida in the body ( yeast like substance in the body). You go this girl. On our journey to clear skin!!!
