  1. Accutane is prescribed for both very severe acne, and also (sometimes) mild acne that doesn't respond well to other treatments.
  2. Awesome, thanks a lot! I'm going to purchase the 2%, simply due to rather sensitive skin. But thanks a lot for the recommendation and link to the site, much appreciated!
  3. Yes. I've been taking candex for almost 2 months or so now, and yes, my skin is dry, possibly due to it. I mean, even washing my face with warm water, it's dry afterwords. Like you, my skin used to be an oil slick. I have 0 oil on my face now, but my skin is almost too dry now. I don't know what's worse. Dry, tight skin, or oily acne prone skin? I would have to say dry, it can easily be combated with a good moisturizer. Oily skin on the other hand seems harder to take care of, at least personal
  4. Thanks for responding! Would 5% be safe to use on my skin you think? Is there a 2.5% available? I don't know, browse their site. There is! Thank you very much, there is also some fruit acid on there that I can use as a peel. Bookmarking, again thank you! So, have you tried their products yourself?
  5. I've often thought this, since being a somewhat attractive person (besides my acne) I've always gotten rather lucky in relationships and dated rather good looking girls with good skin for the most part. Like you, I've often felt self-conscious about mine. Often times I will think to myself, wouldn't it be nice to be with someone who just understands? But, in reality... it could cause problems. Acne is a stressful situation, it can often be one of the major things we vent about. I feel that if I

  7. I'm looking to buy some salicylic acid as a spot treatment for some of my breakouts, since my skin seems to generally be clearing up to a degree I'm avoiding picking at it due to what already seems to be a bad case of hyperpigmentation, mostly because of my pale skin tone. Anyways, I'm looking for a pure salicylic acid to use, naturally derived. I don't want some type of gel or cream, just the pure stuff! No fillers! Give me suggestions/links/whatever. What percentage works best, what have yo
  8. Quick question for those who have 'cured' your acne, or improved it by treating candida with Candex and activated charcoal. Did you notice that it decreased oil production and dried out your face? I've only been taking the supplements for several days, but I've noticed that my skin is drying up (this is a good thing, as I have extremely oily skin). Not to an extreme extent, but definitely noticeable. Especially directly after washing. Just trying to gain a feeling of whether or not there is posi
  9. I think you need to examine the "before" picture, not the "after". Look at the angle of the largest the scars to his cheekbone with lighting in mind. Also, keep in mind, you're looking at 72 dpi at low resolution. You're not seeing clear pixels here. I personally think the "before" photo is photoshopped and the "after" photo is legit. I looked at it all, I think it just comes down to angle and light source. I don't think it's Photoshopped and if it is, it's a very good job.
  10. Coming from the standpoint of a graphic designer, if that is a Photoshop job... it is a darn good one. Zoom in and you will see there are no pixel flaws, so if they Photoshopped it, they basically did it to perfection.
  11. The area on my forehead is most definitely scarring and active breakouts that are receding. They were just there, that is fresh post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, which I also think is what is on my cheeks. The pictures don't fully allow you to see, but I don't believe it is Rosacea per say. I can look into it though. If it is indeed Rosacea, what would be the best method to go about dealing with it? It just looks blotchy to me, but maybe it's just the pictures. Possibly seeing a derm and see
  12. The same reason that some people cover their skin flaws with makeup. If people feel a reason to hide it and can do so with ease, they will.

  14. This thread has been a long time coming, and I've finally grown the you-know-whats to make it... I'm 21, I've had acne since the 9th or 10th grade (American high school). Throughout my history I have taken many over-the-counter products including face washes, gels and cream - etc. You get the point. I've also been through, I believe it was, three separate rounds of antibiotics. My memory fails me, but I believe two cycles were the same antibiotic and another different one as well. So, three r
  15. False. I'm a vegetarian, and there are many more on these boards. Many of us have bad skin, still. There is much more to cleansing yourself from the inside out than simply becoming vegetarian... and if you don't do it properly you can actually make you skin and overall health much worse.
