  1. Save your time, frustration and emotional distress and get Accutane. Yes, you're going to have a few pussies come here and give the entire worry-wort speech, but overall, they're a minority. Accutane for a VERY high number of people = cure. Yes, no more acne, and significantly less oil production. FOREVER. There are risks yes, but the majority of them are minor and subside once you're done with your course. Meanwhile antibiotics not only build up bacterial resistances, they also can
  2. Thanks so much! I remember drinking straight spirits and my throat being tortured. Just a means to an end. I missed beer too. Doesn't feel right sitting at a bar drinking ice water while all your friends have beer. Update: My skin looks pretty much the same as it did before I went out. Hoping it stays like this. When I got home I downed 2.5 litres of water. Plus had ACV and food. On a strange note: I did have my first blood nose (although minor) in 3 years when I woke up. Apparently
  3. That works, but know there really isn't anything crazy about Finacea. Just a naturally occurring acid. It wouldn't worry me in the least. Now, having some sort of retinoid or benzoyl peroxide rub off on me...well, that'd bother me. Finacea rubbing off on someone or something shouldn't do anything. I actually used to wear it while I was working out and I never could get it to run off or notice it when I was sweating.
  4. I'm still around, albeit not as much as I used to be. I was the clearest I've ever been on Finacea. For a bit over a year I've been off Finacea sadly. Dermatologist thought their work was done and convinced me I could do without it. At the time I believed it, but now I wouldn't mind going back on it, if for just the sake of having smooth, new looking skin. Out of all the products I used, I like Finacea the best. It was just easy for me. Could wear it during the day w/o a moisturizer, it didn'
  5. You can put Finacea on red marks whether or not they're from acne. Put a very, very small amount on a specific mark and it should work. I wore Finacea during the day time. And did all the BP applying during night when I could really apply the moisturizer I needed without worrying about how I looked. You can switch things around depending on your schedule. Consistency I find works the best.
  6. 15% is Finacea. 20% is Azelex. The difference isn't much, but since i have no tried Azelex I won't comment. http://www.acne.org/messageboard/Review-Fi...le-t194294.html That's a user review based upon trying both. Finacea for me revamped my entire skin. Texture, feel, smoothness....it made pores look smaller and my skin more even. The redness went away and it was awesome for day time wear.
  7. Well obviously you are or were worried because you went through the trouble of creating this thread and testing out the telephone method. Why you quoted what you quoted made absolutely no sense. All i said was angle the phone...isn't that a premonition? I'm also sure that everyone else DOESN'T know that angling the phone is the solution, including you. Otherwise you never would've texted instead of talked, and everyone else wouldn't be like; "Wow, you're right...not talking on the phone re
  8. You guys are aware the phone DOES NOT need to be plastered to your face... correct? Hole it up to your ear and angle the remaining half of the phone away from your face/cheek. This is just ridiculous if people are seriously worried about this.
  9. For that reason i don't press the phone against my face. I put it against my ear and angle it away from my face. I can hear and talk perfect. Now if you turn your head, and rest your phone on your shoulder to do something with both hands..then yes that's why you're breaking out.
  10. That's normal if your skin starts to get the early stages of un-hydrated skin. Try a light moisturizer if you can fit it in. Shouldn't be oily, or affect your skin. Should just hydrate more than the little Finacea takes away.
  11. You can use it for the rest of your life and it'll work just as good. The antibiotic may quit working as good, but it's really the BP that's doing all the work. You can't become resistant to BP...so basically use it as long as you need to.
  12. I sometimes use Biore shine control cleanser. It's not completely necessary, but if you've only been solo'ing it for 2 weeks without one, then just wait a little bit more. If you've been doing it for a while ( months) and it's fine, then good, you don't need a moisturizer. Finacea helps all types of acne. With BP, make sure you use a very thick moisturizer. I apply Duac at night and use Cetaphil moisturizing cream. It's in a 16oz tub and cost about $12, but it's worth it. Lasts me 4
  13. Here's your problem. You're letting your skin get "Chapped" much like your lips in the winter. Anything you apply will BURN like a complete bitch. You need to go to the store with $15 and get a 16oz Tub of Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream. http://www.cetaphil.com/Products/moisturizers.aspx It's the 2nd from top, and is in the tub. It's thick and VERY hydrating. You could apply BLEACH to your face, put this over it and you'd be fine. It's made by the same labs as Differin, so it's safe
  14. Finacea is a white gel yes. It may instantly give you a nice "White" tinting effect that looks natural no matter the skin shade. It's beneficial as it's almost like a cover up to instantly hide some imperfections, but at the same time it's doing so much for both acne and rosacea sufferers. It will not block or clog pores, as it rapidly sheds skin, reducing redness and marks. You're basically getting rid of accumulating skin cells before they're allowed to become blocked into your pores. You
