    Working out, reading, Georgia football, travel, lake, swimming, Pinterest :) but mainly interested in having an acne free world!
  1. Thank you so much. I don't really know anyone who has diabetes and struggles with acne. I know a lot of people don't correlate the two but my glucose levels are so sensitive to anything I put in my body, I have to be careful. That's good to have a confirmation on accutane and sugar levels.
  2. megtree that is perfect! I'll have to look for that when I go to the store tonight. actually...my doctor didn't tell me about not mixing the two. I haven't done that but it is still good to know. there aren't a lot of great derms in this area and one of the "best" is who I saw...literally spent not even five minutes with me and prescribed me all these things. But she's the third dermatologist I've seen and I even drove 45 minutes just to get there. seems like all this is one huge mess. I'm hopi
  3. thank you! mrsrobinson I've actually been doing the no dairy thing for about two months now. I don't notice too much of a difference.. but I'll keep it up. as far as the toner I don't know a gentle one to use, I used to use one but my skin is so sensitive every one I tried felt like it was setting my face on fire Thanks so much for the replies, it helps a lot!
  4. I've recently started doxy among other things and my derm told me it would be about 3-6 months before full results and to absolutely do not give up. I know everyone reacts differently to meds but hang in there a few more months if you can. I've seen it work on two people I know as well after the 3 month mark I was looking into accutane too but will do anything not to go on it. Just read some of the issues people are having post accutane..sick, joint pain, perm. vision damage, headaches and a d
  5. Hi Everyone! This is my first time reaching out to anyone nonetheless a lot of anyones! I'm almost 23 years old and I've spent the last 12 years struggling with acne. Not only does it bother me in the physical sense but it has gotten to the point where I can't be in fully lit rooms for fear of people seeing my skin (even with makeup on) and I have avoided mirrors unless I'm face planted into one looking at all the bumps. I have tried OTC remedies, all natural ingredients remedies, all the kit
  6. I've been using the CereVe PM and AM moisturizer. It is amazing. I use that along with the hydrating cleanser from CereVe. I'm currently using Aczone in the AM and Differin .3 gel in the PM along with taking doxycycline daily. I'm getting flaky, dry skin all over my face but this stuff has improved my skin in a matter of days. The AM moisturizer also has sunscreen in it for protection. It burns my face (very briefly) when I first apply it, but I feel so much better after using it. I apply makeu
  7. I agree to every single one! So nice to know I am not crazy.. I'll add a few.. - having all the lights dim so noone will see your skin - wearing sunglasses and it making you have a little more confidence because it's covering a small portion of your bumps - constantly checking your mini mirror to see if any whiteheads popped up in the three hours you haven't been home - washing all your makeup off as soon as you walk in the door at home for fear your skin is mad at you -
