  1. i'm 15 and have had acne since.. oh, i don't know? 10? over the years i've tried almost everything. topical treatments either didn't work or stopped being effective shortly after. i found out two weeks into minocycline that i was severely allergic to it; erythromycin did nothing; birth control didn't seem to improve my skin and made me a raving lunatic. the only thing that's been effective so far is accutane, which i've used twice, the first time for 2 months and the second time for 6 weeks. bot

  5. I swear by any Clarins mascara. Everyone always recommends one to me saying that it's not clumpy, but OH it is. Except for this one.
  6. Hello hello everyone.. Before I get started on this, I think I should explain everything first, or else this will be confusing. I've been seeing a skin specialist for about two years now, except he's not really a skin specialist - he's more of a general practitioner with an interest in dermatology. Anywhoo, three weeks ago to the day, I went to him and practically begged to be put on tetracycline. My acne is not as bad as most people's on here, but is still the major problem in my life (it's not
