Frustrated and hoping for the best!

Recommended Posts

DAY 2 (Started yesterday :))

Nothing huge so far, but haven't had any new breakouts, and skin's been flaking a bit. Moisturizer is working wonders for that though.

Hi everyone!

I've had moderate acne since high school...it would come and go. And when it came, it was real, REAL bad. I've tried the retin-A, antibiotics, benzaclin, all of that jazz, and I finally mustered up the effort to go give this a go. I am realllllly freakin hoping this works out!

I'll try and post pictures on a weekly or monthly basis. I'm on Amnesteem, starting out at 20mg pills twice a day (40mg total per day)

Here's my current regimen: (please feel free to critique!! I could use all the help I can get!)


- Cetaphil daily face wash

- Neutrogena Alcohol-free toner

- Neutrogena daily face moisturizer (w/ spf 15) - real light, real nice.

- breakfast & 1 20mg pill

When I shave:

- KingOfShave's pre-shave oil

- Neutrogena sensitive skin shaving cream

- schick quatro razor


- dinner & 1 20mg pill

- Cetaphil face wash

- Neutrogena toner

- Neutrogena face moisturizer

I also have blistex medex for my lips (just in case, havent had any issues yet) that I'm applying throughout the day. Finally, I'm drinking lots and lots of water.

It seems that everyone here has been really helpful to each other and I'd love to get anyone's two cents :)


- Does anyone know a good multivitamin that doesnt have Vitamin A? If not, what supplements do you take and why?

- Any other precautionary measures I should take?

I'll post pictures probably at the end of the week.

Thanks a ton and here's to hoping for the best!
