    Effective Cheap Simple For me, epsom salts are a straight up miracle for acne. I have struggled with acne since I was 8 years old, and I am now 17. That's almost 10 years and I'm not even an adult yet! I've been on Accutane, Duad, Bactrim, Proactive, clearasil, Murad, and probably 50+ other topical treatments/antibiotics that did not work. I've had terrible cystic acne, and my face has caused me distress, embarrassment, and severe self-esteem issues. Although in the last couple of years my acne
  2. Last time I wrote about acne was June 2011, and the fact that I haven't been back since is actually quite good! I've been using Exposed Skin Care since June and it is by far the best non-prescription product I have ever used. Really, for the last 10 months I haven't had to worry about my face very much, which is just what I've always wanted. My scars still bother me, but they seem to be fading little by little and they look more like freckles than memories of painful acne and embarrassment.

  4. It looks like I'm going to be venturing out on another acne limb, and trying yet another new product called Exposed Skin Care. It has fantastic reviews, and I've dug pretty deep to make sure it's not just like Proactiv where they use actors and the same testimonials for long periods of time. It really does seem effective, and it's on pretty much every top 10 list for acne products out there (usually it's even number 1!). I'm hoping now that since my acne isn't quite as severe anymore, this produ
  5. I was seriously hoping I wouldn't have to continue this blog, because I though my "acne journey" was over, but no, here I am... My acne is very different from the way it used to be, much smaller and not as painful, which I'm thankful for. However, for being on accutane twice I am not pleased at all. I have tiny under the skin acne that seems to cover every inch of my forehead, and then redder surfaced zits on my cheeks and chin. Pisser. I'm contemplating a few newish products, because
  6. WHoah I can't believe how long it's been since I've entered anything! Well hello! Basically I've been trucking along with accutane. I'm on the fourth month (unexpected but I'm glad) and for real the last one this time! Only about 15 pills to go I'm quite pleased with the amount of clearness I'm seeing, especially lately. All I have left now is hyper-pigmentation which over time will hopefully fade. I am happy and at least for now am closing the acne chapter of my life. Best of luck to all of y
  7. Hello all you shining stars! I am about to begin my 3rd and last round on accutane. I hope greatly that it's the last one ever! Whilst I was in Mexico last week my face was I kid you not, completely clear. It was insane!! I was so happy and then as soon as I came home my face broke out a little and I was like damn, give me a break face gods! Now my face is still a little bumpy but better than before because yesterday my derm extracted some schnozzle. I suppose I'm at a point now where I'
  8. Greetings Earthlings, SO my face was doing quite well a couple days ago.... but now it is a minefield! Everything is so bumpy! It's weird and obnoxious. The most frustrating part is I can't do anything! I can't put any healy stuff on it because that will mess with the accutane and do more damage. So I just have to wait out this break out old school. And I'm sure it will take quite a while, for accutane makes healing slower. Insert squeals of joy. woo. Where's my acne crack when I need it? (this

    Just Me

    Thought I'd post some pictures so you could put my blog to a face =) These pictures were taken the first month of accutane and the second month
  10. why hello there! I believe I've taken about 5 pills from my second prescription. This time since it's 30 mg the pills are orange, which is MUCH more enticing to me! Not that this information is relevant in any way at all... The face. Oh the face. My cheeks are smoothing out quite nicely, all that's left there is that stubborn hyper-pigmentation dawdle-dee. BUT the doc said as soon as I'm done with accutane they will do something to heal that schnozzle right up. That's quite exciting =) Now,
  11. Hey thanks for responding! Sweet! I'm actually really excited about it...even though it's kind of expensive I think I'll just get the starter kit. I mean if my skin does clear up wonderfully then I don't want to ruin it with bad makeup like a lot of girls at my school do!...Oh teenagers and makeup..it's miraculously terrifying sometimes!
  12. Hey! That's awesome! Go teenage power haha. But yeah it can be really annoying! I feel like such a freak peeing ALL the time! He he...I guess it's good for us in the end!
  13. So sorry that I haven't entered in a while! I suppose I've just been so busy with summer.... I would say my bout with accutane is going much better than last time. The only thing I've noticed is dryness and as long as I put on lotion in the morning/night and always have chapstick I'm good to go. I've also been drinking an insane amount of water so I suppose that's helpful. But seriously, I have to pee nearly every 5 minutes. I actually was at my lovely dermatologist's today to get my
  14. I've taken approximately 25 clevaris pills. I think everything is going fairly well apart from the dryness. Also I was a bit worried because for a while my lower back really was bothering me and I know that can be an affect from the accutane. I'm definitely going to ask the doc about that, but I think if it was something to do with my kidneys it would show up in the blood work. Anyway I think it's going relatively well, my face is getting a bit smoother as each day goes on. There still some
  15. oh ok sweet! Thanks =) I'm just sick of things melting off my face and not covering at all...I shall be trying that! I'm glad it's pretty cheap...makeup can be freakishly expensive sometimes
