Accutane failed..trying The regimen

Entries in this blog



last month my one and only wish was to wake up with nothing new on my face...now after my wish came true,,i am like : daaaaaaaamn how can i get rid of all these red marks!!!

well,,i know my face may break out any second...it calmed down suddenly and this might be the "calm before the storm" wacko.pngwacko.pngwacko.png I HOPE NOT!!

i'm still using the face cleanser and the moisturizer twice a day..this is how my face looks like now..blogentry-207701-0-94671800-1368737938_t


well,,i'm confused now!!

after four days on the regimen i decided to quit after my face burned badly ...

today (three days later ) 95% of redness in gone,, and,,,,,,,i have no "new" pimples or zits or any kind of acne!!i haven't woken up with nothing new on my face for soooo long!!!!

my left cheek has no acne at all now!!just red spots with no,,(hmm i don't know how say it)...no texture?!just red spots!

my right cheek still has three ones (they were newborns when i started the regimen).. i really hope and pray they would just die like the others without any reproduction!! :'( and of course i still have red spots too...

so,,was it b.p??? does it have a "four days" magical effect??or may face was meant to start clearing up during last week?? was it a coincidence??

should i apply b.p on these three bastards??? (not on my whole face)


Damage Control

so today my face is 24 hrs b.p free.. burned skin started to peel off but it hurts when i try to help it peel so i left it to take it's time..

my face is exactly like my shoulders in the day after when i swim for too long under the sun without any sunscreen ..like snake changing it's skin..lol i know i know you get it no more examples tongue.png

i asked a doctor friend what to do to make it heal faster,,and she advised me to use a topical cream called "Mebo" ..it's a great moisturizer and it accelerates skin healing plus help with reducing scars..i don't know if it's available world wide or if there is something similar ..it contains Sesame oil (oleic acid,linoleic acid,sesamin) ,cactus extract,beeswax..

the funny thing is that i totally forgot about acne because i was too busy thinking about my burned face!!

damn you acne vulgaris :@ :@ they should invent vaccines for it !! will someone please start to study this idea sad.pngsad.png i'm not smart enough tongue.png


White Flag

this is the fifth and LAST day on the regimen...i believe i am allergic to bp because now i my face is chemically burned ... yes burned it's not just RED now i also have burned areas around my mouth and under the area around my eyes,,l

ast night was a hell of a night ,i couldn't sleep because my face burned so much i couldn't take it no more so i went to wash my face..that's when i looked at myself in the mirror and OMG i looked like an evil creature from horror movies!!!

my face calmed down a little now (this picture is AFTER it calmed down),,

for those on the regimen with no significant problems,,,you are lucky and i really wish you best of luck <3

for those intending to try The regimen,,GO FOR IT!!!it didn't work for me but it worked for many many people..i have seen that myself....but try a little amount only on a small area at first just to make sure you are not allergic or your skin is not so sensitive..

and for me..i'll stay in my cave for a while ... i won't be applying ANYTHING on my face for a loong loooooong time!!

if anything,,maybe i'll try antibiotics but NOTHING topical sad.png

thanks for supporting me ..i'll stick around coz i can relate to many ppl here smile.png


GOD is this normal?????????????!?!?!?!?!??!?!?!?! my face is burning and it's so RED like a VERY VERY bad sunburn ...can somebody look at picture and tell me if this is normal!! (it's much worse on reality but the camera is not that good)

if it's normal when will it go away sad.png

i feel liking giving up on this..my skin feels so damaged burned rough ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

any advice?? HELP !


so i was feeling guilty about wearing makeup...I WISH I DIDN'T!! foundation started to cake and flake !i looked horrible i couldn't look anybody in the eye :(

confidence = zero

i think my skin is experiencing the so called "hardening effect"

i have no new pimples and the old ones are still there,but my face is red and swelled ...

patience ...patience...patience....


a teeny tiny amount of bp once a day and my face is BURNING !! i wonder how will it feel like when i start putting generous amounts :/

i think i'm gonna keep applying this amount for the first two weeks until my skin adjusts well to bp..

my face is just like yesterday so i will be posting images every week (in hopes that there will be improvement)..

i have to go to a party tomorrow ,, i don't just feel bad about my acne i also feel bad coz i will have to wear makeup :( i wanted to avoid makeup for as long as i can but here i am wearing makeup on the third day .. sigh ...


Day 1 On "the Regimen"


Sooo i decided to try The regimen AND make my own blog!!

about me (long story short) i have been suffering from acne since forever..i tried anything you can think of..nothing worked..so finally i decided to give Accutane a try (although i was against using it because as a pharmacist i know how BAD it's side effects can be)

before accutane my acne NEVER left any scars!!even after very bad breakouts..after accutane my face was acne free but every pimple left a scar!!so i was never satisfied because the scars were really deep and red!!but i decided to leave my face as it is for a couple of years then remove scars using laser or something .. (in my dreams lol)

a year and a half after i stopped accutane acne came back!!!like i have never treated it with such a strong medicine!!a second course of accutane is ABSOLUTELY NOT AN OPTION!!i suffered so much from dryness all over my body and i'm still on artificial tears and lots lots of moisturizers everyday,,plus my hair NEVER looked the way it used to be!! (i really don't recommend it)

i am so depressed now because my wedding will be in august and i really want to have a clear face on my wedding day sad.png

so i am trying The regimen!!!>> i will keep posting images,,i am full of hope!!

wish me luck!!!!no one can understand US except someone who has been through this..it's so sad
