I'm clearing up remakably...HOW?

By stopping ALL MEDS!! I've dropped all medication and started just using soap and water, and I've cleared up at least 50%. I have no new pimples, just some markage left over from previous outbreaks, but they are light in color. I only have one or two real pimples but they are on the way out for sure. I figure, all I did before I ever had acne was use just soap and water, and well, I really think it helps!! All I do is wash my face with PURPOSE soap in the shower. I then put on lotion if I plan to use makeup to help cover my old marks, but if not I use nothing. I still plan on taking accutane though, just to prevent future breakouts and get rid of the marks. I know a lot of you might be afraid to stop your treatments, but in all seriousness, ISN'T IT WORTH A TRY??? Give it a week. I was using a whole slew of medication...Benzoyl Peroxide, Differen, Minocycline, Clean & Clear Continuous Acne Control Wash, astringent. My acne cleared up a little but then I just stopped and boy can I see the difference!! biggrin.gif/

Congrats!!! I think it's always best to use the least amount of chemicals. For me, I have my good days/weeks and bad days in terms of breakouts....it's probably the same with many other people. Hormonal level changes have some play in it.

That was definitely alot of medication/chemicals you were using. Glad that you're giving your face a break from all of it smile.gif
