  1. I just bought zinc (50 mg), vitamin A( 8,000 IU) , and omega 3 (1200mg). Has anyone had success? Is there any risks? Should I take one of each a day?
  2. I have been on differin(the new higher 3 strength) for 11 days. I have some redness and sunburnt feeling but barely any peeling and my acne looks better everyday. I was on tretiniod for 5 months a little while ago and got a horrible IB with no improvement so i stopped. This was about a year ago. Could the IB from tretiniod have prevented me getting an IB from differin. I know I have only been using idifferin for a little while but my skin has never looked better. Is it possible to get no IB fro

  5. Although things work differently for everyone, the dab-on application of clindamycin made my skin literally prefect (and i had stubborn mild-moderate acne). It evened out skin tone and I don't think I had a pimple worth stressing over the whole time i used it. However, it stopped working after a little less than a year. But i still compare everything i use to the fantastic and near perfect results i got with clindamycin.
  6. I am very interested in thisproduct, but I am not sure about using another product wit retinol. I had a doctor who put me on Tazorac and my skin broke out horribly, like never before, and never got better even after 7 months of using the stuff. I have some breakouts but my main concern is just the poor quality of my skin (uneven tone,texture, small bumps). Do you think this would have the same bad results as Tazorac or should I give it a try? Also, my skin is not sensitive.
  7. I used to get monthly glycolic peels (usually 20%) and saw some great results, but now I am away from home at school and it is hard to schedule. I saw that you can but 20% and up peels over the internet to use at home. Is this safe? If so, where is a good place to purchase these online?
  8. I am taking Adoxa which has helped clear up my face after a terrible run with retin-a. I went on vacation to St. Thomas and no matter how much sunscreen i put on i still got badly burned on my face (adoxa, and antibiotic, makes you very sun sensitive). My nose is now peeling horribly with scab like patches and brown spots and my cheeks are bright red with scaly patches. My forehead has less noticeble scaly red patches with what looks like a breakout near my hairline/part. What should I do? Any s
  9. I have a tiny, white bump under my right eye that has been there for a while, but has just gotten a tad bigger. It is not actually on my eyelid/eye, but like 1/4 inch below my bottom lashes. It looks kind of like a white head, but when i tried to pick or break it, it didnt pop. It isnt a stye is it? I thought those were only on your eyelids.
  10. Are you using the gel or the cream? I was just prescribed the 15% cream, do you think that makes a difference? &&Thanks for the plug
  11. I went to a new derm who prescribed me Finacea(15%) at night, and Clenia and one 150mg Adoxa (doxycycline monohydrate) in the morning. Has anyone tried any of these three? Also, with the Adoxa do I take it after a meal? And why without dairy? Info on any of these would help a lot, I usually know a lot about the product they give me but I have never heard of any of these!
  12. i went to a skin clinic, not a derm/doctor, for a peel and she gave me some without a prescription. You could try an online pharmacy, a lot carry retin-a without need for a doctors rec.
  13. sorry, bumping this because i have a derm. app in a week
  14. i used tretinion .05% for my face and am just now seeing improvement after over 3 months. My initial breakout was AWFUL, but I stuck with it and hopefully things will only improve from here. My advice is stick with it for atleast 3 months, do not use too much, and use mild cleansers. good luck!
