  1. I never though I would be doing one of these posts, its amazing to write this. I suddenly started to suffer with moderate acne when I turned 21, I had painful nodules and pustles on my forehead, cheeks and sometimes chin. My skin was oily, and just looked so awful. I am no by means saying this will work for everyone, but I wanted to share what I found worked for me after many months and a lot of cash spent testing and trialling products, both over the counter and prescription. One I got rid of
  2. Thank you all so kindly for replying. It is a real support and comfort to know people are in the same boat and can relate, even though I would not wish this upon anyone you know what I mean. I think it can be soul destroying, and it is not one of those things you can talk about with friends or family, or even sometimes professionals, as it truely is something you can only relate to if you have been through it. I hope everyone here starts take make positive changes and that we can all suport each

  4. This isn't a fully pledged reccomendation. I used elizabeth arden 8 hour cream moisturiser spf15, but they do a 30spf version. So far (touch wood) it hasn't broke me out. Its a lovely moisturiser. If you have the cash you can get dermaquest moisturiser (spf 30) which is meant to be good and help acne. It is available at selective stores though, where do you live? Or you can buy it online. x
  5. Most people on acne org have probably seen me posting quite regularly in recent months. I think I have a problem, well I know I have. In the past week I have had 2 friends pull me aside and tell me that I have gone beyond obsessed with my skin and that they are concerned. My housemate said she thinks I have the biggest cupboard of products she has ever seen and that my obsession with my skin has gotten extreme. Both have told me, amongst others, that my skin is improving. I just don't think i
  6. Congrats darling! Good luck with the plan and simple b5 x
  7. Wow, I can really relate. My story is the same, I am the same age as you and expected it to be much more wonderful than it is. Looking back there was nothing wrong with how I looked, I had quite a bit of attention which I was blind to but now it has stopped I am so aware of what I had. Do not lose sight of what is important and do not forget that acne is just a challenge in life. Its a struggle we face to learn from and you realise the true beauty of people is not on the surface. You are not alo
  8. Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour cream, as well as the Elizabeth Arden 8 hour moisturiser with spf 15. The eight hour cream works on healing pimples, and the moisturiser has helped revive my skin after it got seriously murdered by BP. It also helps heal up scabs. The eight hour cream is also good for ANYTHING, its magic in a tube.
  9. I see people with acne. I NEVER see people with scabs/acne wounds or anything. I feel like an idiot going out when I have attacked my face. I swear I have never seen anyone with it and it makes me more self concious. But then again, a girl may walk past you or me and think 'I wish I had her hair' or 'I wish I had her body'. We only look for our own insecurities in others.
  10. It sounds like your skin has gotten flooded with different treatments, and seeing as it takes up to 3 months usually for them to work your skin hasn't had time to adjust to one product. I don't know when you started taking them the last set? Duac should not make your acne worse as it is an antibiotic, but differin is known to have an IB period. If you were having success and the cost is not much of an issue sticking to a product you know works is a good idea, but I think you need to choose a pr
  11. I have heard that Malarone can cause/exacerbate acne. Is this true? I don't want to go on doxycycline as I don't want my acne to get worse once I come off of it. I swear everything causes acne. Why does acne make travelling a nightmare . x
  12. I need to get this off my chest. I swear I have just lost it mentally and emotionally. I have had 2 friends comment on how my skin is improving, however I just feel like its getting worse. I have got obsessed, to the point I have barely been able to leave my house and I check my face ever 5 minutes. Pores that are clogged I attack, that you can't even see or notice and I feel like my pre acne days I probably would have never noticed. But now I do. And I just get so depressed over every imper
  13. Thank you!

    No I haven't! what is it? My digestion is pretty good, I take psyllium husks in the morning and I started taking pro-biotic/pre-biotic tablets yesterday as well. Keep me updated on your progress :)

    1. Have you ever been on antis? How is your digestion? I love your posts. I am trying a pro-biotic experiment. I surely hope it works.

      1. I think its all about the way you hold yourself. If you go in confident and acting like you don't care about your acne it makes the person not care, and honestly you seem like a genuine guy so I don't think it would matter at all. I have a problem of hiding my face when I talk to people/not looking them in the eye, and its then when they make comments about my skin as they know I am so self concious about it. I swear once I have had a drink and don't care (I am not saying drink!) people treat me
