  1. Neosporin works wonders. After you apply the neosporin, wait ten minutes and apply concealer. The neosporin will prevent it from scarring, too.
  2. I see you have listed the Puredeming intense gel. Have you tried it? It really evens out skin tone, very quickly. It is like magic. It also makes your skin look like "good" skin; it gives a glow. I have been so happy with this over the counter product that I just bought the mini-peel by puredeming--I hope it works nearly as well! I tried it for 1-2 weeks. I saw little results, should I give it more time? Maybe my redmarks are just too stubborn, they WONT go away. How long did it take for

  4. I am on week 15 and my skin looks beautiful, now. . . I was hating life during week 5 just like you, then, all of a sudden, I stopped breaking out. I haven't had any active acne, since. I am praying this is permanent. I am getting used to clear skin. Hang in there! After the IB is over, 5 weeks will seem like a very short time.
  5. I was prescribed differin at night, duac in the morning. You just need a thin coat of both. After clearing up, a stopped with the duac and am still clear. The differin is not drying at all.
  6. I'm 43 and I still have it. A bunch of my friends have it, too. . .
  7. umm no its a big black clot..u know like you get on a bruise. i know it'll come off in a few days but don't know how to conceal it till then. it won't even cover up with makeup :( Neosporin will help with the dark color. It will also help it NOT turn into a big scar. Exfoliate with a very soft toothbrush, and gentle soap like cetaphil. Then apply a thin coat of neosporin cream. Now, apply concealer/then light foundation. You can also ice it.
  8. Wash your face with a GENTLE soap (like cetaphil bar) and gently run a clean, soft toothbrush over the top of it. This should remove the flaking. A little neosporin on top of it after you dry your face should make it smooth, dry, flake free, and ready for concealer. The neo will reduce/remove the redness, and also make it clear faster with less chance of a scar/red mark.
  9. Have you tried an intense moisturizer, after the cetaphil bar? That's how I get rid of the occasional flaking. Sometimes, I have to apply to or three coats, and let it soak in. . .
  10. Good luck--I hope the differin works for you as well as it does for me.
  11. It's true; the retin-A is already exfoliating for you--you are rubbing your skin raw! Try the cetaphil moisturizing bar; it is super gentle, and somehow seems time-release; my face is moist (not oily) hours after I use it.
  12. COTZ is a gentle, non-comedigenic sunblock based in zinc oxide that I swear by. It is 58 spf, slightly tinted, non-greasy, super gentle, and it works. It is also water and sweat proof. If they stop making it, I am DEAD because I have age spots, and use acne meds combined with laser treatments that make my skin super sun sensitive. Put COTZ in a search and find their website; this stuff is famous, and well-known world wide as being one of the best sunblocks out there.
  13. I am on differin, which is a weaker retinoid. My ib lasted four weeks; my acne was much worse than it had been (I have mild adult acne); but I stuck with it. I haven't had any active acne for almost seven weeks now. Unfortunately, the ib left marks; but those are now fading. If this keeps up; it was WELL worth it, as my skin has settled down and become predictable. It's a nice feeling, being somewhat confident that you will not break out--even during hormonal times--I hope it lasts! I als
  14. I have often wondered the same thing. Just from skimming this board for five minutes (and there are lots of other sites out there) you can see the potential, as far as money making. It's clear any one of us would do ANYTHING to cure this problem; and lots of us have spent big bucks already, with little or no results. Acne in adults seems to be getting worse, too. I don't remember my friends' parents having acne when I was a teenager; now I'm in my forties, and most of my friends are sufferin
  15. I, too, am an adult with the "clogged pore" type of mild acne. I have had very nice results with differin. I don't know what you've read, but it is actually quite gentle as far as acne topicals go. It does give you an initial breakout; but now it's smooth sailing. This stuff does not dry out adult skin and actually gives your skin a nice even tone. I really like it.
