Anna-Lisa Aranda's Tazorac & Tri-Cyclene Lo Jorney

Recommended Posts

Alright the Regimen I'm trying to use is a combination of

Tazorac and the birth control pill, Ortho Tri-Cyclene Lo.

I've been dealing with acne since I was 6th grade and now that I'm a senior

for next year, I CANNOT go to prom looking like a pizza.

So...

Since I don't like to write alot, I'll just show things in pictures.

Here I am June 29, 2007:

Here is my acne as of July 2, 2007. ((TODAY))

Man - my face hurts, so bad..... :xxx:

I think it just got worse....

(NOTE: just came out of the shower so my face is red,but

now you can see the actual damage.

I am extremely flakey and my skin is just screaming.

I can't sleep properly at night or talk on the phone without having to use my

blue tooth - its painful! I'm always praying to god to let my acne clear up, but its just

getting worse and worse. Every morning I wake up with white heads dotting my

chin and sides of my face - T_T I just wanna cry at how ugly I really look right now......

WARNING: The pictures you are about to view are

disgustingly distrubing.... viewer discretion is advised - whatever that means.

Hi,

Good luck with your regimen. How long have you been on the birth control and the Taz? I know lots of people who used Taz experienced acne flares in the beginning. How often are you using it?

My face is burning.. when I got out of the shower, I saw all this dead skin around the bathtub just from my freakin' face! I hate this..... I just wanna cry and be emo abou this whole thing but I can't - I finallly got the job at the bank and I feel like my personal image is ugly....

((don't tell my boyfriend I said that))

I must have the worst acne....

and I'm only 17....

Here is the non-flashed version of my face.

For some odd reason.... this camera isn't giving the full detail of my face - its

MUCH worse than this....

Just used green tea and it stopped my face from swelling and my inflamed acne went down dramatically! sweeeeeet! I think I'll use Green Tea as the natural way to reduce the redness... 3-4 cups of chilled tea - ahhhh refreshing! My face feels better now! ^^

Very cool tea will definitely feel good on your inflamed skin.

Please use warm, not hot showers. Hot showers can make the inflammation worse. :(

Good luck on your course, and I hope you clear up! You're definitely a very pretty young woman. :)

Well my face is clearing up - Still having issues with the REALLY dry skin for some odd reason - its to the point where when I take a shower I can see the dried off skill in small bits in the water when I open the curtain. Is there a moisturizer or something that can help me with that? Its gross!!!!!!!!!
