  1. Hello guys, I used to be an active member on this forum years ago, but ever since I took Accutane for 6 months during high school my skin has been manageable. Now I use Neutrogena oil free acne wash and it works great. The only problem I have (as you can see from the pics) is that taking Accutane left behind some scars that I'm trying to get rid of if possible. I've had them since I ended treatment around early 2011. I've tried some products in the Acne.org regimen in the past when my acne was w

  3. Starting Summer of 2010, I started my 6 month long treatment of Accutane. I was given a high dosage in my opinion (the first month I took 40 mg a day, and the other five I took 80 mg a day). It was a success and after the 4th month I completely stopped getting ANY bumps at all! I was amazed and even found myself forgetting to wash my face regularly. While on treatment I didn't get many side effects, (including dry, chapped lips) the only ones I remember are common bloody noses, and everyone tho
  4. It's been a year and a half since I've finished Accutane, and a little over a year after that my acne came back! I'm still thankful I took it because although my acne came back, all I need is an over the counter face wash to help since its so mild (before not even prescriptions could help me!!) also how long did you take it for and how many mg's? For my info see below, but I want to see how different everyone's results are.

    Banana Peels For Pimples?

    Granted the pimples weren't that big, really like Katy Perry on the Proactiv commercials big, but yes it did. I'm asking on here to see if it works with a little more severe acne
  6. Being a trashy reality tv addict, I was watching the premiere of Bethenny Frankels talk show today, and it was on cheap alternatives to beauty products (much more interesting than in sounds) and one of her examples was using a banana peel and rubbed it on one of her pimples for like 10 seconds and it was gone! She even had one of the audience members try it! Granted, their pimples were relatively tiny compared to how some board members might be, but I knew I had to post on here if anyone was act

    Tomatoes For Acne?

    @Epicdermis! thanks for the study! The product works really well, so it might just be the Salicylic Acid, either way i'm going to keep using it. It's just weird to me they put emphasis on the use of tomatoes, but they use different fruits/vegetables in their products for naturalness. Like "Yes to Blueberries" for wrinkles, "Yes to Carrots" for body lotion. they even use tomatoes in their hair shampoo/conditioner products hahaha
  8. Even though you didn't list it, I would use Cerave Foaming Facial Cleanser. Although i didn't use THAT version (because it's for oily skin) I used Cerave Hydrating Cleanser along with the moisturizer while I was on Accutane and it worked amazingly, I figured if the hydrating cleanser (which is for dry skin) worked good, why wouldn't do Foaming cleanser work as well for oily skin? It's pretty much the same as Cetaphil with more helpful ingredients.

    Tomatoes For Acne?

    Yeah, Salicylic Acid is the active ingredient, i just said Tomatoes was since the product puts so much focus on them as the helpful ingredient in the product, even though Salicylic Acid is the common acne fighter, so I didn't know if BOTH were. On my bottle, it says for key ingredients just Salicylic Acid and Lycopene (which i'm sure means Tomatoes lol)
  10. I've never heard of this, but after Accutane I started getting mild acne to come back (not nearly as bad as before) and I am able to control it with this product I use called Yes to Tomatoes. it's basically a 3 step product like ProActiv or AcneFree. A cleanser, a repairing "lotion, and a rolling ball stick (which you "roll" over your existing pimples). And the main ingredient in all 3 of these products is (you guessed it) Tomatoes! it works AMAZINGLY and usually gets rid of all my acne in 3 day
  11. Everyone responds differently to Accutane! I didn't start seeing improvement during Accutane until month 4! (i was on for 6 months) and have been clear for a year now! I mean, i started getting mild breakouts after 9 months being off it, but it's not like it was before, where over the counter could not help!

    Taking Accutane 3 Times Daily

    i would definitly take 40 in the morning and 20 at night. Roche doesn't reccomend taking 1 pill a day (even though i did for a short time with just 1 40 mg pill for my first month) but only reccomends taking 2 a day for optimal results and possibly as a safer result?
  13. just had to comment on this again LOL. TOTALLY have to agree that no matter what, our skin will never be good enough in our own eyes. I remember after I stopped accutane i looked at my face smiling and then i remembered. I have 7 moles on my face! it never bothered me before, but it was like, now that i didn't have acne to worry about, i tried to worry about something else LMAO completely rediculous I know, i should have just been happy to be acne free! but I looked up mole removal for 3 weeks

    Second round of accutane? Or just go OTC.

    I agree, I would like to stay as OTC as possible, possibly trying Dan's regimen again. I would really only consider a second course of accutane if my acne became moderate or GOD FORBID severe. even then i would definitly suggest me derm give me a smaller dosage than my 80 mg a day before.
