  1. Hello. So I have been using the same cleanser for about two years now. (Proactiv's deep cleansing wash, which has expoliating beads and salicylic acid) I also went through my 2nd round of Accutane, which I got off of in Sept. My face became super clear and lovely and everything was wonderful until about the beginning of Dec. My skin has been acting very strange. I get these red, non-inflamed and non painful bumps all over my face. They're about the size of a regular pimple but aren't hard or p
  2. I used to have that as well after suffering really severe hormonal cystic acne. Ha, if the bumps weren't enough. I too had red marks covering my face and it really bothered me. What I found to be the most beneficial is just letting it be and giving your skin a rest (no make up or anything). Drink a lot of water so your face has the moisture to help heal itself. And one thing you could try is microdermabrasion which slowly removes the dead skin cells off your face, thus, removing the acne scars
  3. Hello! Background: -18 yr old female in college -completed 2nd 6 month Accutane course in September. -use Proactiv deep cleansing wash as cleanser -proactiv complexion perfecting hydrator as moisturizer Alright, so here lately my face has been breaking out in small, non-inflamed bumps ALL over my face. They usually last 2-3 days and often itch quite a bit. They aren't painful at all and you can barely feel them but they're very red. They never have whiteheads or black heads to them. It's
  4. I am 100000000% positive that I have developed acne dysmorphic disorder because of my traumatic experience with severe cystic acne. I am not being dramatic or exaggerating. It has affected my life completely. Acne has definitely caused serious mental problems with me. I'll spare you the details. I just wanted to know what steps I need to take to get the help I need. I know I need to see a therapist/counselor but I don't know how. My parents just yell at me and tell me to get over it. I'm t
  5. *when you know your Detmatologist's number by heart. *when you spend 24hrs a day contemplating on the "if had clear skin, I'd..." scenario. *when you take about 6 different pills a day JUST for acne. *when you honestly don't want to live anymore. THAT is when you know it's truly bad. ...when even accutane doesn't work.
  6. I honestly believe, from my own experience, that acne can definitely be related to masturbation. I have actually tested this logic out. My theory is that when you masturbate, your body releases all these hormones(which as you know, are notorious for causing acne), which makes skin break out. However, I'm a girl so I don't know if it would be different for me. All I know is every time I have, I got a new pimple the very next day... every single time. Without a doubt know the two are related. S
  7. I'm literally crying reading all of these because they're our reality. Our sick and twisted reality.
  8. Why is it that guys still seem to look really attractive even with acne but girls don't? It stinks.
  9. Hello! I'll try to keep this short and sweet. I'm 17 and literally JUST finished my 2nd round of Accutane (2 weeks ago) Took 1st round at 14, and acne came back something terrible. This 2nd course, I was on 40mg for 7 months, along with antibiotics, zinc supplements, and birth control. I am still taking the antibiotics, zinc, and birth control. However, I am now developing acne again!! After just a measly TWO WEEKS of Accutane, which has gave me clear skin for 3 months straight. The
  10. I am in in the EXACT same boat! I'm 17, took first round of Accutane at 14 and acne came back with vengeance. I literally JUST finished 2nd round of Accutane (2 weeks ago) and my acne is already starting to slowly creep back into my life. 2 freakin' weeks!! And like you, I do everything by the book in order to obtain clear skin. -I change my pillow cases. (DAILY) -Drink 2gallons water/day. -Eat very healthy. (Nothing but fruits, veggies, fish and chicken) -I run 4 miles/day. -NEVER EVE
  11. Honestly, I wouldn't suggest it. I was Accutane for six months and even though I did not have any serious side affects, my face became immensely dry and sensitive. When your skin becomes so sensitive, it wouldn't be a good idea to put a chemical hair remover, such as Nair on your face. It could cause bad irritation and tiny bumps to occur in the area. Trust your gut, if you don't think it's a good idea, then don't do it.

    Step 3, the combination therapy feels nice and refreshing. . Didn't work at all. . More breakouts(major) started to show up. Proactive may have worked for some people, but not for me. I used it for approximately a month and the only that it did, was make my acne even worse than it was before. The uselessness of the product stressed me out, resulting in even more breakouts. It seems like a never ending cycle. Personally, I think acne is a huge waste of money.
  13. Trust me, spending your money on Proactive is definitely not worth it. Though, Proactive may work for some people, practically all the reviews I've read have been negative. Rating, 2.6/5? ..Doesn't sound very convincing to me. With my experience with Proactive, my acne got the slightest bit better at first, but then started to break out worse than it has ever done so before. Giant, knot like pimples appeared all over my cheek and chin areas. Extremely sore to the touch. I kept using the product
