  1. http://www.acne.org/messageboard/Accutane-...26#entry2866726 "My name is Paul. I have suffered at the hands of acne for seven long years... I have felt very self-conscious with my acne for some time. I have cried over it countless times, I have never truly acted myself, there is always something blocking me it feels like. This acne is a large barrier to my happiness..." Yeah, you sure do make it sound like a "mild condition". Haha. that's hilarious.
  2. Yup I agree, moisturizer is good for your skin. I stopped using it for awhile because I thought that the dryness wasn't really affecting me. Bleh, my skin darkened and then started peeling off. Not good. The moisturizer is good for skin for the reasons that Laddy Odd Duck specified- acne comes from irritated skin and the moisturizer helps combat that unfortunate effect of the BP.
  3. I stopped using the regimen last fall after doing it the enitre summer. Only reason was because it bleaches close when you sweat, and I played soccer so I couldn't have my uniform/ practice clothes being bleached. It did work for me, which is why I'm on it again. When I stopped, I did not have a massive breakout, and my acne didn't become worse than it had been before the regimen. It just went back to how it was before. The regimen will clear you up, but it's definitely not a cure for acne. I
  4. So, not much to report on the acne side of things. I've been a bit bad with picking (argh) but not too bad. It's just that when I run my hands across my face (haha also bad) if I feel aything that could come off, off it goes. Eh sounds disgusting imo but oh well. Other than that not much. I've been contemplating on why it is that I have acne. I don't think it's hormones due to my age because one- I got acne at a really young age. Granted, I was a really early bloomer....hm. Well okay it possi
  5. Good luck with your new regimen! Is the ACV in your Aveeno Skin Brightening Daily Scrub or do you do it separately?
  6. Your derm is probably right- you've made so much progress already! Congrats!
  7. Hey there! Good luck with your journey to stop self picking! Adding to doublehawks suggestions, you could come on here if you feel the urge to pick and write about it here/in your blog until the urge passes! Haha I know that surfing the web can be a mindless distraction sometimes so that might help. You know, I've never heard of an extractor tool before. It sounds terrible though haha. Sorry that your mom used it on you. Good luck!
  8. Success- did the regimen morning and night today =) I've gotten a few more pimples- small in size- due to purging/ the crappy job I did last week with the regimen. It's okay though, I'm sure they'll pass. They aren't too bothersome. Haha I'm really tired right now which is probably why I don't care about anything currently. Ummm...I've been looking into things to help with my PIH. I thought the AHA might work, and was going to buy that but then I saw some stuff about ACV (apple cider vineg
  9. A bit more description might help us out- are the marks still red or a different color than your skin? Because if the skin is smooth like you said, and not indented or anything than it's most likely just red marks/hyperpigmentation. If this is the case, then yes they will go away although for some it may take a while. There are ways to speed that up if you're willing to. Just look around on here and you'll find several ways. If it's not hyerpigmentation/red marks, then I guess it some accutane
  10. I was looking around and I saw that ACV (apple cider vinegar) has been used for helping along hyperpigmentation. I thought that I would buy some of Dan's AHA to help out, but now I'm torn as I already have ACV in the house. Would any of you recommend one over the other for effective reduction of the marks? Thanks!
  11. Day 14 So I've been getting better about doing the regimen. Mainly I've been doing it at least once a day, but like I said, I'm getting better about doing it twice a day. It helps that I can see the progress. My zits are dying of pretty quickly. I'm going to see if I can order some AHA soon to deal with the hyperpigmentation (it helps with that right?) as that's my main issue. I've got some actual scars, most likely ice pick but I couldn't care less about those currently. I want CLEAR skin, it
  12. So I'm home from school as I just finished my first AP test. Took a look at myself and saw that I was making progress! A bit of purging going on but that's okay with me. I'm probably going to go ahead and buy the AHA treatment soon so that I can work on my hyperpigmentation. Lets see...the fish oil/vitamin C supplements are definitely working on my hair haha- it's growing in really fast. Not so sure about on my acne but I have confidence. Long term results are what I'm aiming for. Especially bef
  13. I hope to log my progress (possible, and much wanted progress) using the Regimen.
  14. I actually do update, just on my blog. I'll probably update my log every week or two. But my blog will be every day or so. And it's going well so far! The regimen is definitely helping the existing acne I have.
