  1. How terrible! I know what you are going through, although my parent's supported me when I asked to go to a dermotologist. I don't know your age, but perhaps you could talk to your guidance counselor or nurse at school about this. Acne causes emotional/mental health problems, at least it did for me. You must talk to someone!!! do not hold this inside, you are going to make yourself sick. I'm sure your parent's have health insurance, what's the big deal to take you to see a skin doctor. Goo
  2. I've been on accutane once, hearing that it was the miracle cure. To my dismay, it didn't work! I just had a mild-moderate case of acne, but it did absolutely nothing other then giving me dry lips and dry skin. I am now forty years old and still get the occasional zit. While in my adolescence, zits ruined my life. I gave up so many things, not dating, not going out. I eventually outgrew that, but still won't go out or socialize if a big zit appears. I don't think I'll ever outgrow my obse
  3. Clindamycin is an excellent antibotic for the skin. Try it in unison with Ovace face wash. That combination works. As for Dan's regimen, didn't work on me, but thanks for the encouragement folks. The clindamycin coupled with the Ovace wash should have you improved in 2 weeks or so. Good luck #-o
  4. BP, Cleocin T and Differin, that's quite a "harsh" regimen. The research I've read on Cleocin T and Differin say not to combine with any other product.. I'd use Dan's regimen soley... using the bp only, etc....
  5. Ditto to what Lisa posted. An expensive product that did nothing. I should have known. Even in the informercials they had people with beautifully clear skin. If it really works, why didn't they have people with "problem" skin using the products??? Oh well.....
  6. I don't know the extent of your acne, but if it's a couple of pimples, ask you doctor for cortisone shots. They clear up the pimple in 2 days!!!! Maybe you could go to your dermatologist a couple of days before the wedding and explain the situation to him that if for some reason unexpected zits comes up he could fit you in for an injection. I just figured I'd share this information, as I myself know how frustrating acne could be. Good Luck! and Congrats!
  7. Excellent site! Excellent advice! and a regimen that is "do"-able. This is truly a user-friendly site, I'm glad Dan doesn't charge for his "expertise" I visit frequently to know that I'm NOT alone in my search for a "zit" free complexion.
  8. I'd go see a dermatologist. From my experiences, the "quickest" way to get rid of a zit is to get a cortizone shot. I've had many, many a shots in my life. It works. Also, it seems accutane would be a good choice for you. But - get a dermatologist's opinion. Good luck!

  10. I agree with Diana's post. The tinted "defuses" the look of a pimple. There is no difference in the effect of the product (tinted vs. vanishing) have the same results.
