  1. Ah, I see your dilemma. Because usually doctors call it in, if you call it in they can't fill the prescription because some random guy called them and told them to. I would just call them, tell them what's up and they'll either tell you to bring it in, or call back your doctor. In terms of how long it takes to get the meds, it varies by pharmacy, but accutane is pretty common so it shouldn't take too long to get, at least as I remember it.
  2. The only way to truly know if something works is to try it yourself. Although I've never used it, you might as well give it a shot and see how it works. If you like it then keep using it, if not then drop it for good.
  3. Yeah I don't really use cleansers any more, except before shaving. I find that the oils/ph on my face are a lot more balanced.
  4. I don't think it's worth it in your case. How I look at is that the Clarisonic Mia is an accessory for skin care, and doesn't do much for treating acne. In fact, it may make your acne worse.
  5. We all have bad skin days, but what always makes me think more positive is knowing that if I stay the course my face will soon be clear. You can easily reinforce that concept by taking every effort you can today to make sure your routine is firing on all cylinders.
  6. At first I was like there's no way I'm reading all that, but I did anyway haha. Great read, very inspiring. It's so shitty how a few red dots has the power to hold us back so much. Just saying "Screw it" and pushing forward is what it takes. I'm going to share this post with some people if you don't mind.
  7. This is very interesting. Can you post the product your using? Also, what do you believe are the benefits of topical vitamin D over oral vitamin D?
  8. I take 4/5 products you listed, all except for psyllium husks. For me personally, the most effective supplement I have ever taken for acne is Cod Liver Oil. It's amazing. The potent combination of vitamins A & D, as well as the Omega-3 content is your skin's best friend.
  9. First of all, like Geeking said talk to your dermatologist. I currently use Clindamycin and Differin, the former in the morning and the latter at night. In your case, I'd use clindamycin in the morning and BP at night. However, keep in mind that BP won't cure your acne, it is simply a band aid treatment. It should only be used imo for spot treatments.
  10. Let's back up here a bit. Why is your skin sensitive to the point of it being "burning, red, and stinging"? Have you seen a dermatologist about this? What skincare products are you currently using? If you want an answer to your question though, I'm a big fan of Cetaphil products. Their moisturizer is gentle and shouldn't cause any irritation.
  11. The link you posted is an Amazon Affiliate link so either you or her are trying to push that product to make money off people. Always be wary of people pushing health products when they're not health experts. Do you mind posting the article where this quote is from? I'd like to see her cite some studies to back up her claims. Cod Liver Oil in my opinion is one of the best supplements for health out there. The only risks I've seen out there are possibly increased risks of prostate cancer
  12. I think any one who has suffered from moderate to severe acne has experienced this, at least I have. To me, the first step is getting rid of acne, obviously. If you didn't have acne, there would be nothing to worry about right? What is your current routine like? The problem is that because getting rid of acne is a process, you can't sit around waiting until acne is gone to resume your normal life. You want to start today. My belief is that you need to accept your acne and your skin,
  13. I think all the dosages are pretty solid, except Vitamin A may be a bit too high. Vitamin A is fat soluble so there is a small probablity of overdosing, whereas with water soluble vitamins like vitamin C that's not possible. Have you ever considered Cod Liver Oil? I prefer it over vitamin A pills because it's natural and not synthetic, and has a good balance of vitamins A and D, as well as Omega-3's.
  14. Hmmm I've never seen so much anti-Hulse sentiment in one place I personally love his videos. I'm into fitness and therefore find many of his videos applicable. For those who don't like what he has to say that is completely fine, but I think many people on here could find his videos helpful, which was the intent of the OP.
  15. Because you're still a teenager, it's likely that your acne is indeed hormonal. Have you seen a dermatologist? I can't remember if you need a prescription for Epiduo. If you haven't, I'd recommend seeing one as they can provide you with the proper care needed to balance your hormones. The problem with Epiduo is that it is simply a topical, and doesn't do much to treat the underlying causes of acne which is in your case hormones. Make sure that you aren't deficient in certain vitamins and m
