Help With Acne Regimen

Recommended Posts

Hi guys I'm new to this forum, and hopefully you guys have a lot of experience and can enlighten me with the proper way to apply my acne regimen.


In highschool I had very bad acne I went from medicine to medicine, but nothing would work. The dermatologist finally took me off and made me get on acutane. I was on actuane for 6 months and I was acne free. It left a lot of scars unfortunately, but that didn't bother me that much. Skip forward 2 years later


Acne wasn't a problem for 2 years until I started getting a few pimples here and there. Eventually it led to a big break out, so I went to my dermatologist to get some help. I inquired to be put on acutane again,but he declined and put me on minocyline, retina, and acanya. It was ineffective for the most part so I underwent facials and let me tell you it was a lot of pain. My acne has gotten better after the facial, however I would like to be acne free. I would like some guidance on how to apply my medication.

TLDR- Took acutne unfortuantely acne came back again at full force, I have many acne medication looking for guidance for medication or how to apply it.

Right now in the morning this is my morning regimen

2. Cerave Moisturizer

1. Cerave Cleanser

2. Cerave Moisturizer

I've read that apple cider vinegar, honey, and lemon with sugar is a great remedy for scars and acne. Perhaps you guys can give me some guidance on how to apply it to my regimen, or enlighten me with your effective regimens.

Honestly, I think you're using too much product! I used to have insane acne, and currently I dont have more than 1 or 2 pimple at a time, but I used to have like 10 or 11 all over my face, and big red spots too.. My dermatologist told me to dump any products I was using (Acanya and various creams) and give the holistic method a try. I thought it was stupid, but I figured the creams clearly weren't working, so what's there to lose? I wound up getting Acne No More, and at first it didnt do much, but suddenly about 3 weeks into the system HOLY CRAP it was such a difference. Here is where I got it (I'm in NO way affiliated, mods if linking is not allowed, just let me know) http://www.youracnereview.com/ good website. Has a review of the product and a place to buy it. I think its like 30 bucks, but my god is it a life changer. Try it. Try not using the creams for a week and then use a holistic system like this.
