  1. Hi everyone! Today is my first day on Accutane and I decided to read some logs on here to sort of give me hope. Well, it scared me more than anything. I would like to know what products you ex or current Accutane users are using to reduce common side-effects. I've heard about chapped lips so I got myself a repairing lip-balm. I've read that some users get nosebleeds and that is something I've never experienced before and I don't want to experience it so is it safe to use a nasal spray for dr
  2. I've been using the Cetaphil oil control foam wash for roughly two years now. I can't remember the results at first but today, I still have oily skin with the use of this cleanser. I was thinking, maybe my skin became dependent of it and now it has no more effect on me. Maybe it's time for me to change cleanser? I'm scared to change since I like how gentle it is. At the same time I feel like it is now the cause of my oily skin. What new cleanser should I try that will not cause oily skin? I also
  3. Thank you for the quick reply! Is that product available in Canada? I actually don't mind if we still see a bit of my hyperpigmentation, as long as it's less visible. I've tried applying lemon juice, tea tree oil and honey face masks but I feel like they don't work well on me.
  4. Hey guys, I have been dealing with mild/moderate acne for the past 6 years and unfortunately my skin has been recovering gradually slower with the years. This is why I've been using my mother's foundation to hide the hyperpigmentation scars that my acne leaves behind. I only use the foundation on the scars themselves and I have to say that it works pretty well to go out at night or in dimmed lighting. I'm looking for something that will hide my scars in daylight. Since I can't wear foundation
  5. Shaving can make acne 10x worse. Going over a pimple and slicing it open or having the hair pulled from the follicle won't be solved with fruits green and junk food. I have to agree with this. I know that shaving causes irritation, and irritation causes acne in those prone to it. This is why I'm looking to reduce irritation.
  6. This. I wake up with beautiful skin and my hyperpigmentation seems to have vanished overnight. But for me, a few hours after my morning shower my face becomes greasy and the hyperpigmentation is back. Maybe it has to do with the shower but I don't use hot water, I use lukewarm.
  7. I believe that I have both, ingrown hairs and acne. Thank you for sharing, I will look into it! That seems like a pretty thorough routine, you have good patience!
  8. I too would feel great while with my partners but when I'd go out with friends or was alone I'd get self-conscious. I really understand what you mean. But you shouldn't feel stupid for the nice things he says because he's seeing past your skin and into your personality. If he likes the person you are, you will eventually become the prettiest girl to his eyes no matter what! Take it easy on yourself, at least you have someone who accepts you like you are. Most of us are still searching desperatel
  9. I'm wondering what product I should use when I shave my face to avoid clogging pores and reduce irritation. Right now I'm using the neutrogena shaving cream with disposable 2-blade razors. I'm getting mixed results and I'm trying to figure out if this is causing my breakouts because they seem to occur a few days after shaving. I only shave once a week because my facial hair doesn't grow fast. I would most likely go for something natural with no chemical ingredients if possible. Thank you p
  10. That too is my biggest fear and I'm really sorry it happened to you. I'm on an online dating app too and I know my acne doesn't show in my pictures but if I go on a date with someone, they will eventually notice. The thing is, if he judges you on your skin, he's most likely not the one for you. Don't worry about it there are many guys out there who will understand your condition if you explain it to them. Face your fears and go on that new date. I totally understand why you go for disabled v
  11. I am no doctor but it could possibly be! I would try the things they recommend in this article and see if it fixes your problem. Eat foods with zinc, vitamin a, vitamin e and magnesium. I'm sure supplements could help too. I'm giving this a try aswell starting tomorrow!
  12. I read an amazing article and thought I'd share it with you all, as it might help a few of you out there. Here is the Article This article might not be for everyone, but I'm sure some of you will feel hopeful after reading it. Good luck!
  13. They look like blackheads to me but I could be wrong. Have you tried popping them? What happens when you do?
  14. Wow... I really appreciate this reply. I'm glad to hear that your current partner accepts you like you are, and even pops your pimples as if they were his. My ex girlfriend use to pop the pimples on my back and loved it. I'm overly sensitive of what others think of me by nature so having acne definately doesn't help me. The day I won't care about what people think of me is the day I'll be the person I've always wanted to be. I have a friend who had horrible cystic acne in highschool but was one
  15. See, that's something that I know but yet there's something about having acne that prevents me from being the confident guy I know I can be. As of now I've been waiting for my acne to disappear to then go out looking for a partner. Even while in a relationship, I still lack confidence because of acne and I'm concerned about what my partner thinks of my skin. anyways thank you for the info, I appreciate it!
