1. What kind of acne do you have?

Mild acne that flairs into the moderate range under stress, occasionally flairs for no apparent reason as well.

2. How long have you suffered?

I started getting a spot here and there around 10 or 11. By 6th grade I had acne. I'm now 22.

3. Does it affect you social life?

Uusually only if I have a particularly bad flair up. I may not want to go do anything with anyone.

4. Does it affect your diet

I cut out a lot of foods and got obsessed with it. I didn't see much of a difference. I still had acne. So I added things back into my diet. There are still some things I haven't consumed in years though.

5. What over the counter products are good?

I like Neutrogena Gentle Cleanser, though it's not for acne. I can't name any over the counter acne products that have sone anything for me, unless you count a pedicure brush.

6. What over the counter products are bad?

Aveeno's acne treatments sent my face to hell.

7. Have you been on atibotics if so what ones?

I've been on minocycline...didn't work so I weened myself off of it. I've used quite a few prescription creams. One called Rosula was the only thing that worked.

8. Did the atibotics work?

The Rosula worked beautifully, but eventually it stopped being effective.

9. Have you tried tane?

No. It's one of those last resorts for me. I don't really have the type of acne for it, and I also don't want to take birth control pills.

10. Did tane work?

See above ^

11. Where do you get your acne?

My chin and around my mouth mostly. My cheeks don't breakout as much as they used to...but my skin tone is uneven. No matter what I've tried, it stays uneven looking. In some ways, that bothers me more than the acne.

12. How many active spots do you have at the moment?

2 regular sized ones, several small spots that aren't as noticeable.

13. Is your face red/shiny/dry/ or okay?

My face is oily and always has a bit pink look to it in some areas...it's just uneven looking all the time. Don't know why.

14. Where dont you get acne?

Forehead and along my hairline. My nose is usually good.

15. Name a crap product for acne?

Aveeno's acne line, as mentioned above.

16. Name a good product?

Haven't really tried any acne creams worth raving about, unless you count the prescription Rosula cream.

17. Have you tried dans regimen? is yes did it help?

Yes, for two months. BP works well on the acne, but it tore my face up. It looked horribly sunburned and tomato red. I traded acne for something just as awful looking

18. Do you think food affects your acne?

I did the diet change and still had acne, so no, not on a significant level.

19. What BP product is the best?

If I still used BP, it would be ProActiv's.

20. Finally name your daily regimen?

Wash with NeutrogenaGentle cleanser, exfoliate with the cleanser. That's it.

1. What kind of acne do you have? I used to have moderate acne. Lots of blackheads, whiteheads, and occasional cysts.

2. How long have you suffered? Over 10 years, since I was 12. 3 yrs before my period and right before I started using makeup.

6. What over the counter products are bad? I can't think of anything that made it any worse.

7. Have you been on atibotics if so what ones? Yes. Amoxycillin I believe, clindamyacin (liquid form), and menocyclin (sp?)

8. Did the atibotics work? No, they just made me nauseous or very dizzy. I couldn't use them long enough to see a difference. clindamyacin helped some as a topical

Wash face with Clean & Clear BP wash (I use a very soft brush)

Run nail brush over face to get dead skin and a healthy glow

Wash face with Hibiclens (soft brush)

Apply Norwegian formula Neutrogena moisturizer to eyes

Apply Persagel to entire face and behind neck...except eyes (duh)

I reapply moisturizer to my eyes in the middle of the day

1. What kind of acne do you have?

Currently: Excessive black heads on nose, regular reoccuring whiteheads, ingrown hairs which can become infected. Mostly mild and can sometimes get clear but sometimes get some real ugly reoccuring ones.

At the start I had every type including cystic which has eased off over time thank god.

2. How long have you suffered?

10 years, was not a problem as a teenager, had a supurb social life, looked great and felt happy, then it all kicked off at 22 im now 32. Im sure that work related stress, lack of sleep and a hectic social life was the original trigger. How my life and personality changed when it struck me down.

3. Does it affect you social life?

Yes, but its better than it used to be as other than reluctantly going to work which I need to do to survive and trying to build my career anything which was optional in terms of sociallising I would shy away from. Things have improved a good deal and I have got my social life back but still often have to make excuses to friends when im not happy to go out in a social situation. Everything is last minute as if I dare book anything in advance my face may end up in a mess and I dont want to go. I've not booked a holiday for years and have only had brief relationships with girls which I have let fade out as I wouldnt want them to see me when its not so good.

4. Does it affect your diet

Always eaten fairly heathily but have tried all the fads for three months at a time and found none made any difference. I now eat what I like and believe that it plays little part in acne unless you are stupid enough to eat crap all of the time. Im sure adding some items which contain the relevant vitamins help but you need to consume large quantities for a long period of time to reap any benefit in my opinion.

5. What over the counter products are good?

B5 was great for a few years but it dont seem to work as well nowdays, for the first two years it was brilliant. Im sure it works better for adult/stress related acne than it does for teens. Its always worth trying before accutane, I wish I did. Glycolic facewashes are good as they get rid of the layers of dry dead skin without causing irritation and can be used every day.

6. What over the counter products are bad?

All the so called miracle crap that you see advertised on the TV. They make non sufferers belive its that easy to clear acne, Clearasil etc profiting from our misery, cant believe its legal.

7. Have you been on antibotics if so what ones?

All of them for long periods, some I cant even remember the names of. Tetracycline, Minocycline, Tetralysal etc....

8. Did the antibotics work?

No but they help keep infection at bay. Acne is caused by blockages which fill with sebum which is normally excreated by an open pore or hair folicle to keep the skin from drying. Sebum is not a bacteria so an antibiotic will not stop it from occuring, the skin from becoming blocked or a hair ingrowing it will only help fight any infection which can result from having an open wound. Thats my take on it anyway.

9. Have you tried tane?

Yes about 8 years ago. The derm was useless, after tane had nothing to offer me other than what my GP had already tried. As with everyone who gives up after tane the Derm chalked it up as sucessful as I signed myself off his books. I was wasting my time and his so someone else may as well had my place.

10. Did tane work?

Made me ill, made my skin weak and prone to scaring and blotchy which it never was before. I regret taking it, a big let down left me depressed as it was the last great hope. Im sure the weakening of the skin caused the recurring problem that I have with ingrowing hairs today.

11. Where do you get your acne?

Used to be all over my face and back but has changed forms over the years. These days my nose, chin and neck are the worse with recurring problems and the rest is much better nowdays.

12. How many active spots do you have at the moment?

4 or 5

13. Is your face red/shiny/dry/ or okay?

My skin is real combination, after I wash its very dry, later on its greasy and blotchy especially when im stressed or tired.

14. Where dont you get acne?

These days my whole body is clear except my face, neck and a couple on my back.

15. Name a crap product for acne?

Roaccutane, Clearasil, Biactol, Oxy..

16. Name a good product?

Anthony Glycolic facewash. Not an acne product, expensive but worth looking out for if you have dry flaky skin.

17. Have you tried dans regimen? is yes did it help?

Nope, but have used BP and didnt like it much

18. Do you think food affects your acne?

Nope, you would have to cut out or take something for three months to notice any differance. Anyone who claims they got a spot from eating something wrong the day before needs to think about it. How long do acne meds take to make any effect?

19. What BP product is the best?

Dont use it

20. Finally name your daily regimen?

Glycolic facewash morning and night. Nothing else im going natural for now it seems to suit me best.
