  1. Hello Everyone! So, I'm on my second week on the Exposed Skin Care Line. The pamphlet says that my acne might get worse in the first two week and it definitely has. It isn't so bad though, I've had a lot worse on other systems and medications. My main problem is that the old pimples have left dark marks all over my face. I've heard they take months to go away, so I'll have to patient. I feel really hopeful at the moment, as hard as it is to keep trying new products all the time. At the momen

    New Beginnings

    So I have been on Differin since Dec 2012 and so far it has improved my skin a little. However, I had been on and off cleaners like crazy. I was mainly on the Bert’s Bees Acne Wash, but it didn’t really do much for my skin. I am stopping the Differin and trying out a new acne line called Exposed Skincare. I’ve seen really great reviews online, so I thought I might as well give it a try. I’m hoping to be updating more frequently than I did for Differin. The Exposed Skincare line has to

    - great coverage - mineral based - has SPF - doesn't case breakouts - great with other foundations - a little expensive - face can become shiny if you have oily skin like mine I have been using this product for many years and have loved it! I have tried using other products that were cheaper and was easier to access, but I always go back to this. I have had acne since elementary school and this makeup has been the best that i've used.
  4. Hello Everyone! I haven't been on in the longest time, so I thought it would be best to write before I forget again! So I have been on Differin 0.1 for the past 6 weeks. Tomorrow will be the start of the 7th week. I have had about 3 major breakouts since I've started using it. The first breakout was around the first or second week, the next was around the 4th week, and my last breakout was at the beginning of the 6th week. For the second two breakouts I am pretty sure I know why they happene
  5. Urghh! Face, why must you do this to me?

    1. I totally know how you feel! I have been depressed about my acne for the longest time! Makeup is definitely my saviour too! If I didn't have it I probably would never leave my house! I have friends that always tell me that my acne is not that bad, but they have NEVER seen me without makeup! Since I was in grade 4, I've never known what it is like to have clear skin! Hopefully we'll both get there one day!

      Update!

      So i have been using differin for 5 days now and my face is definitely worse! The first time I used differin my face didn't start breaking out until the third week of using it. I also have exams right now, so that's probably not helping either. I've been getting really big pustules all over my face, mainly on the sides, jaw and chin area. My face is also a little dry which I knew would start happening. My old acne marks also seem to be a lot more pronounced and red. I'm still only using a washcl
    3. So my face is finally settled down from the chemical burn I got from using the mask the other day! My skin is still dry in some areas, but it is so much better! Like I said before I am using a wash cloth and only water in my face and so far it's been great in letting my skin calm down! Now it just feels like its getting a little clogged, so I was thinking of going back on my differin. I was put on it a month or two ago and I really liked it at first! However, I had been using it for about 7 week

      Hopeful!

      Ok, so it's only been a day or two of not using any products and I feel that my face is getting better already! Like I said in my previous post, I must have destroyed my face with all the chemicals I was slapping on it! My skin doesn't look like a tomato now! The overall colour of my face is not as red as it was! The redness of my pimples has definitely diminished too! I have a couple new bumps but they are probably an after effect of the damage I did the other week! However, my face is still ve
    5. OH MY GOSH! I'm sorry that happened! What ever you do, do not give up! I know participating in sports can make acne a lot worse, I should know because I have to wear a helmet all the time! You could try using Polysporin cream to help heal the damage that has been done! (just use the cream not the oil based one!) If you really love wrestling, definitely continue with it! I don't know that much about wrestling, but all I can suggest is thoroughly washing any equipment you use, especially if it's a

      About Me!

      Thanks you so much for the comment! It's nice knowing you're not alone in this struggle for clear skin. I'm so happy to hear that your skin is clearing up! It must feel like weights are lifting off your shoulders! I actually haven't tried the Regimen yet. I heard about it a long time ago, but never thought to give it a try. Now that my acne has completely flared up again I definitely think I should give it a try. And I totally have friends that have completely clear skin, and I definitely think
    7. I can really relate to you in many ways! I have been struggling with multiple mental illnesses, and acne on top of it makes everything 100x worse! I am also on medication and sometimes I wonder if the meds have anything to do with acne! I'm glad you are so passionate about a topic that can be very depressing and that many don't even know about! For me, acne is a major trigger that makes many of my symptoms worse. People tell me to get over it, or my acne really isn't that bad! People will NEVER

      About Me!

      I have been completely fed up with my acne! I have been struggling with acne since I was in elementary school and it has just become progressively worse. I have spent thousands of dollars trying to help with this debilitating skin condition, with no luck. I have kind of let my skin go because of University and I am currently battling mental illness, which has caused me to break out. As a person with multiple debilitating mental illnesses, acne is just another trigger that can cause extreme episo
