  1. I stopped using my MUA 30% glycolic peel aftter my bad experience. My face was burnt due to the sensitiveness from Differin and Clindamycin. I really want to use something to exfoliate but am not sure what to use. Any suggestions? I am looking for something not harsh. TIA.
  2. I tried the tape method hoping to get rid of the red marks faster. My skin was sensitive from Differin. I yanked the tape off and end up pulling skin off. I have a small scar on my left cheek. Luckily I have a dimple there so it sort of not too noticeable. My face was RED from using apple cider - again hoping to get rid of the red spots. So far the only thing that I found works wonder for my skin is drink a lot of lemon juice. Lemon juice and exercise make my skin radiant.
  3. I was suffering from mild acne over a year ago. Since I have been on Yasmin, Differin, and Clindamycin, I have been clear for over a year.
  4. I have been using it for about 5 months along with Differin and Yasmin. I am not sure if it's working. I have moderate acne. At first I was on Differin and Spironlactone and they didn't do a thing for me until I got on Yasmin. I think Yasmin is doing the job. I continue to use a gel at night and during the day just in case.
  5. I think I will need to use this. I also have the same question for Differin users. Do you apply the Vita K before or after? TIA.
  6. I didn't know that he has/had acne. Cameron Diaz also suffers from acne. I have not ever seen her with it (tabloid photos) but she actually did not show up for one important event because she was covered with marks. She admitted it.
  7. I have moderate hormonal acne. They appear mostly under the cheek, jawline, and hairline (by ears). I am on Yasmin and it is working so far. I am also using Differin and Clindamycin.
  8. Yasmin works for me. I still get one or two breakouts during TTOM :? I wish the marks would fade :?
  9. How long have you been using this product and how severe were your marks? My PCP told me that acne scars takes about 6 months to heal when I asked her to prescribe something to get rid of them.
  10. I suffer acne on my lower parts of my face. I work out 3 x a week and I am always soak in sweat after I am done with running and I have not had any problems with my back. I recommend that you do not put your towels on the equipment and then wipe yourself afterward. I also wash my hands after I am done with my workout before I get undress. If you sweat profusely like I do, I use the towel on the bench but not let it contact my skin afterward. I usually get a shower within 30 minutes of workout
  11. I have been on it for 7 weeks now. It is hard to say whether it is working for me or not. I have moderate acne. I was taking Spirolactone for near 3 months along with Differin (at night). I broke out horribly (worse than b4 getting on med). I stopped taking Spiron and got on Yasmin (morning). I was also prescribed Clindamycin Phosphate for the morning. Yasmin cleared up the bumps I had while on Spironlactone. I was clear for about 3 weeks. Just this last week, I had 3 cyst popped out! I
  12. Lola, Thanks for the update. Glad to hear that it is working for you. Unfortunately for me, I was clear for 3 weeks and now have two cysts on my left cheek and one on my right cheek. I am just really fed up. I thought Yasmin was the answer but I am not so sure anymore. I think all the meds keep my acne at bay, otherwise, I would have jumped over the bridge by now. I will give it a try when my face clears, if it ever does! It's too sensitive now :roll:
  13. Hi Lola, How is this working out for you? I have not had any active acne (knock on wood) for about a month now. I have the marks on my face and would like to lighten it. I am exfoliating with the Scotch tape now and am eager to find out how Susan Lucci's Youth Essence is working for you. TIA.
  14. Wow! $2500!!! I would try Susan Lucci's Youth Essence first. Good luck and I hope you see good results. PLease keep us posted.
  15. Here's my current regimen for moderate acne: BCP Yasmin - 10 (used it for a month and it cleared my skin) Clindamycin - 8 (morning) Differin - 4 (night, not sure if this does anything) Spironlactone - 0 (used it 3 months and it did nothing)
