  1. My diet... I don't eat enough. I've been majorly stressed lately and have lost 20 lbs which is bad because I was already skinny. Last summer my skin was pretty much clear everywhere. Back, chest, face. As for drying, my skin isn't dry at all. I don't need to moisturizer. At first the soap dried it out, along with me using a toner with it, but I quit the toner and stopped drying my face and it's never dry. Ive noticed I'm getting a bunch of tiny skin colored bumps in places I never really had
  2. I've been thinking about doing a water only regimen. I'm terrified to try it though. But... I guess it's worth the risk. I've been using Ivory Soap and a salicylic acid toner for about a week, and it just seems to be making me break out with those annoying tiny white bumps. I think I'll go down to using just ivory soap for a while, then slowly ween myself off of it. I don't want to go cold turkey because I don't want to have a massive breakout. I'm going to keep tabs on your progress. I'm h
  3. I've been researching this all night. And it seems promising. But I'm pretty scared to try it. I've had mild to mild-moderate acne since I was 13/14. I'm 18 now. And my acne right now is probably the worst it's ever been. And I'm starting to notice a pattern... Lately I've tried so many different products on my face. Proactiv (cringe) being one of them. I'm thinking I stripped my skin, and made it dependent on chemicals. At least, from these threads on using no acne medications, this is what I
  4. Oh my heck, I know that feel. Lately, since my acne has been flaring up (most likely from stress), I've been examining the crap out of my face at night and in the mornings. I tell myself I do it to see if what I'm currently using on my face is working, but... What I'm really doing is stressing the crap out of myself, and thus making my acne even worse. Cause acne is a female dog that gets worse when you worry about it. -_- I know I need to relax and take a chill pill, not inspect it so c
  5. You know, I wonder if this is what happened to me. My acne right now is more spread out then it ever has been, and I hate it. I used Proactiv for about 6-8 months, then switched to the Neutrogena Wave, and now I'm using Ivory Soap. So far... no big improvements. I don't know if I could just use water, though. That sounds terrifying... You should let me know if it works out for you. Maybe I'll give it a try in a couple weeks if this Ivory doesn't work. I'm getting so desperate. Anyway
  6. I hope this is in the right place. Though I've been reading acne.org for quite a while, this is my first time actually posting here. I hope someone can help! D;
  7. So I'm pretty much at my wits end. I joined this site to hopefully help find some answers. Because I'm desperate. I've had mild-moderate acne since I was about 13 or 14. I'm 18 now. I've gone through many different treatments, and twice in my life I've had totally clear skin for a couple months. I can't remember exactly why, but the acne always came back. I probably should've stuck to the treatments I had been using, but I didn't and... Well, here I am now. I've had a major overload of s
