  1. I haven't been on Acne.org for a while now but I'm soooo elated to report that my acne has cleared up very nicely. It took 4 months for me to stop having active breakouts which was a result of patience but primarily due to the use of a 1% clindamycin gel, consistent use of the 15% AHA Neo Strata gel that made me break out in the first place and daily application of a aspirin honey mask for 4 months. The purging period initiated by that AHA gel was terrible and there were many occasions when I wa
  2. Glad to hear you're nearing the end of your purge. I've been purging for two months and there does not seem any end in sight

    Day 5

    what if you accidently break a pimple e.g. when cleansing. if i do, i often find it really hard to resist and end up popping it
  4. omg i've been using Diane 35 for about 10 months now and I think you finally gave me an explanation as to why I think my breasts have gotten bigger.. oh crap
  5. Happy New Year peeps! I hope this year will be best year yet for your skin, self esteem and confidence. Here's hoping! I just HAD to make a post about a wonderful treatment I've been applying to my skin since December 26th; it's none other than the aspirin honey mask that I'm sure a lot of you guys would have come across when google-ing for acne remedies like I'm sure almost all of us have done countless times. Basically it's aspirin pills (I use two pills of 300 mg dosage) dissolved in a so
  6. Thank you for your comment Shelby. I've been using it everyday since for 30 minutes and I've been getting impressive results! :D
  7. I remember exactly what I was doing on this day last year. Feeling just as shitty and depressed as I was that day; I've done a complete 360. Absolutely hate that nothing has changed. I just wanna curl up in bed under a blanket and dwell in my sorrow but I have a fucking 8 hour shift to do; it's Boxing Day here in Australia. The only thing I'm looking forward to is an aspirin and manuka honey mask. I've read a lot of good reviews online but then again I've been disappointed by the results, or lac

    Acne - depression

    Awhh I'm so sorry to hear that. The exact same thing happened with my sister yesterday except she didn't laugh. She doesn't understand how it can cause me to be sooo depressed. She has never had acne so she cannot relate; I don't want her to be able to relate because I wouldn't wish this feeling of constant low self esteem, low self worth and social anxiety on anyone. Even I thought of doing that but I feel like I'm nearing the end of purge soon (it's almost two months now) so I want to stick

    10 days with Diane-35

    I know I should but I haven't gone. Yea you will have to wait for about 2-3 months. I'm not sure if it's just in my head or not but i feel like my appetite has increased and feel quite chubby in the face, but then again I might be imagining it.

    10 days with Diane-35

    i'm on the same BC pills too! been about 9 months or so now. it worked beautifully to control my hormones especially when i stress out during exam time. the only thing is that it screwed up my period cycle (i havent had it for 5 months or so now..). I know that's really bad but long story

    Acne - depression

    I feel you Adeel. I was using 10 AHA for a long time and it was working beautifully but i wanted to step up my skin game and get better results so i upgraded to 15 AHA. My skin is going through that ugly purging period and I cannot stand it! I'm going home for the holidays and whilst i'm exciting to see my family, I cannot help but feel like I dont want to go there and show my face. Was skyping with my parents today and my dad asked what happened to my face (during our last couple of skype sessi
  12. I've been mentally beating myself up for the last three and a half months or so. I had upgraded from Neostrata 10 AHA solution to Neostrata 15 AHA gel. My skin was doing amazing well with the 10 AHA and I thought "hey, why not upgrade to 15 AHA because my skin is pretty used to 10 AHA and the results are consistent but I want to look better". I mean, who doesn't, ya know. BIG MISTAKE. Or is it? I guess only time will tell. I've been breaking out profusely (interesting along my chin and jaw area
  13. I have been on birth control pills for 7 months now! For the first couple of months I was using Brenda-35 but one day when I went to the pharmacy to pick up my prescription they were out of it and gave me Estelle-35 claiming that it's the same thing. I believe Estelle worked better for me but I cannot be too sure. That being said, I will continue with Estelle from now on. I hardly break out anymore which is something that I thought that I would never be able to say and it is a blessing that I
  14. Ahhh it feels so amazing to scrub my skin again!! I've had quite bad luck with my skin for the past couple of months so I strayed away from scrubs like they were the plague (I used chemical exfoliants though - namely Paula's Choice BHA and Neostrata 8AHA). I searched for a mild scrub, my favorite from the past was St. Ives Green Tea scrub (btw, it smells divinel!) but the only St. Ives scrub I could find were the apricot ones. NEVER and I mean NEVER use that jagged ass shit on your face ESPECIAL
  15. Damn, I forgot to keep tabs on my blog.. My skin has been doing pretty great lately! I was skeptical and worried out of my mind that the stress during exam time would get to me and cause me to break out like it always have ever since I got acne. This year because I'm on birth control pills, I haven't broken out from exam stress at all! I really should've been on these pills sooner but I was living with my parents at that time and I'm sure they would not have agreed to get me a prescription. I
