  1. I'm in the same boat. Do you cook with a slow cooker at all? I have issues with eating healthy because of a lack of time, and I find that if I use a slow cooker and set it to go while I'm at the office, healthy food is waiting for me when I get home. I have done a scaled back version of this: http://whoneedsacape.com/2012/11/crockpot-freezer-cooking/ It's committing to spending a few hours on the weekend to prepping slow cooker meals to freeze. I also use Pinterest to find some healthy food i
  2. I'm sorry to hear you are having such a hard time with your acne and feeling comfortable with yourself. It can be a really traumatic experience and being in high school is never easy, especially if there are reasons to feel different from others. I urge you to seek help about the impulses to self harm. I'm 27 and have had self-injurious behavior since i was a little older than you. It's not actually an effective coping mechanism, though it can feel like it may get you through the day. If you can
  3. Skin is beginning to clear up. Using more BP again but in conjunction with massive moisture, feeling good.

  4. Seems to help

    Effective Easy to use Fewer inflamed zits I've been using this in conjunction with BenzaClin and it seems to be helping. It has helped to make the pimples I do get stay less inflamed and I've been getting much fewer cystic acne. I use it at night and it has a good texture like a cream, and no side effects like burning.
  5. Effective for my skin

    Dual Medications Effective Drying Sticky I've been using BenzaClin for about a month now in conjunction with Retin-A. This is my first attempt to use prescription products to treat my acne. I believe the BenzaClin is being most effective. It does have a hardening effect of about 2 weeks then it begins to ease off. It also tends to make my face feel stiff if I don't apply moisturizer afterwards. Glycerin in some creams can also react with the BP and create some stinging. Overall I feel like it's
  6. Decent cleanser but I don't like the texture

    Cheap Non-Drying Effective Texture I've used Spectro Derm for a year now and I liked it's ability to keep my face clean. Its Regimen ready as it's a non-drying gentle cleanser. It left my skin feeling clean but is quite a slimy consistency. I found it hard to rinse off, and would have to rub harder than the Regimen suggests in order to get it off. Instructions say it can be wiped off, but i've never done that.
  7. Quality lip balm for dry lips

    Nice smell Works great A little sticky on the lips Winter is approaching here in Canada and the dry lips have already started. In addition to my skin getting dryer with the effects of BP, my lips have taken that hit too. Carmex is medicated and smells like vanilla and menthol, which is an oddly lovely smell. It is non-comedogenic and I apply it liberally so it spills onto my skin, and hasn't caused breakouts.
  8. Good quality lightweight moisturizer

    No/Low scent Not greasy Very moisturizing Reacts slightly with BP I've recently begun on the Regimen and started before I had a quality moisturizer. My skin was getting REALLY dry and I wanted to get rid of the visual effects of the hardening of the BP. The moisturizer I was using just wasn't cutting it, so I went out and got this one. After about 3 days my skin is almost back to it's normal moisture levels. It's not greasy though may not be heavy duty enough for the depths of winter. It hasn't
  9. Wow I'm sorry but those Spectroderm products are terrible and have a God awful scent to them and burn on contact with the eyes (at least for me). They had a sale on them at Zehrs so I bought the cleanser and a moisturizer and hated them both so much I returned them. I wou;ld stick with the Benzaclin and If you're looking for a good cleanser I suggest neutragena. Cool I haven't tried the Neutragena one. I didn't love the scent either but was making do as it seemed that it was the so called best
  10. I know this is an old thread but I'll comment on it never the less. I used SpectoDerm as well for a year and liked it in general, however I don't find it helpful on the Regimen. Because it's slippery, I had to scrub too hard to get it all off, though the bottle says it can be just wiped off, though I've never done that. It's not specifically Regimen but I was prescribed BenzaClin (available in Canada). It's 5% BP and 1% clindamycin. I just discovered this thread so I'll look for the 2.5
  11. I am truly looking forward to going makeup free. I don't feel confident enough yet in my skin because of scaring from years of acne and dermatillomania. I know that makeup can't be helping my skin to clear up, but I can't go without it yet. I do my best on the weekends to go makeup free, and that's a good start for me. I work in a fairly formal environment as well, and I feel like without makeup, I look like a child, already being the youngest in the office. But soon, and it's something I'm st
  12. Thanks so much for the tip, I'll give it a try. I also live in a cold climate and dry winter skin is common issue here. Down below freezing already a few times here and my lips are already chapped and my skin is dry.
  13. Hi all, I'm looking to order the Acne.org moisturizer but I wanted to know how it is. What do you think about it? Is it more like CeraVe or Cetaphil in terms of greasiness and dryness intensity it is most appropriate for? Thanks for any help you can offer.
  14. So I've been doing a modified version of the Regimen for about a week now. I was using SpecroDerm, BenzoClin and CeraVe. It's different, but I'm applying the theories of the Regimen. After a good few days of being very dried out, the hardening effect is starting to diminish. My skin is skill getting zits but smaller ones, which is good. Though I've noticed more on my neck, where I didn't get them before. I looks like the breakouts are reaching to wherever the treatment wasn't put. Now my face
  15. Thanks for the tip, I never considered blending it in with other moisturizers. That seems more functional than applying it directly. Thank you all for the feedback and good to know it's non-comedogenic!
