  1. feeling hopeless. i dont know much money ive wasted in the last year but its more than $400 just trying to find a miracle product. still nothing.
  2. i don't know. maybe cut down on how often you use it. your supposed to start using it 1x a day and gradually increase. so if you are using it 1x a day maybe cut down to every other day. it does cause your skin to be more sensitive. if it is drying out your skin aloe vera would help it feel less sensitive. aloe gel has been a godsend to me, i put it on anything that hurts. i even use it as a moisturizer morning and night. if you do put aloe on don't put cheap stuff that has a ton of alcohol make
  3. is it still working for you?
  4. could be an allergic reaction or could be your skin is just purging. purging is when the product brings all the stuff that is deep down to the surface, and pretty much looks like that. if it's not painful i'd try to stick it out for a couple weeks and if it's just purging your skin will end up being alot clearer. any time i have an allergic reaction my skin burns and turns red.
  5. itchy acne is a sign of fungal acne. maybe look into that. head and shoulders shampoo might help with it.
  6. hey everyone, does anyone know of any dupes or generic versions of proactiv deep cleansing wash? money is very tight right now and can't afford it. i've been looking online and can't figure out anything to replace it. there seems to be a lot of generic versions of the 3 step system but i'm just looking for the deep cleansing wash. any help would be so appreciated Active Ingredient: Salicylic Acid 2% Inactive Ingredients: water (aqua), cocamidopropyl betaine, distearyl phthalic acid a
  7. it may help but once you go on the pill it is a million times worse when you come off. totally not worth it if you ask me. it completely imbalances you. antibiotics completely destroy your gut health. you kill the good bacteria along with the bad so you end up with candida. most the time they dont tell you that you need to be taking good probiotics if you take antibiotics. i would ditch the benzoyl peroxide and try sulfur soap and ointment/spot treatment. the treatments your doc prescribed are g
  8. I love celestial seasonings tea. I love their sleepytime tea and every night I drink a cup of the tension tamer tea which is wonderful if you have anxiety. Their tea isn't all certified organic but doesn't contain any pesticides. They are just the best
  9. 10% glycolic acid lotion or cream works best for me. i use a brand called neostrata which is in with the higher end products at bigger drugstores but there are many. acne.org makes one too. it speeds up skin cell turnover a LOT and also helps keep pores clear. https://store.acne.org/aha
  10. aveeno baby daily lotion is not bad and you can get a tube of it at walmart for like $5
  11. Pretty good

    This is the only cleanser with salicylic acid I've found that doesn't make my skin dry, irritated or worse. I don't use it as my everyday cleanser but when my skin is really bad and it seems to start looking better by the next day. Of all the drugstore brands; Neutrogena, Oxy, Clearasil, Aveeno, Biorre, Cetaphil ect. this brand and this particular cleanser has worked the best. ***EDIT*** After a couple months my skin has gotten more oily from using this so the last month I've been usin
  12. i have noticed people say that about sulfates and then recommend cetaphil cleanser too! pretty funny. cetaphil gentle cleanser has sodium LAURYL sulfate while most cleansers have sodium laureth sulfate and i guess lauryl sulfate is much more irritating and even carcinogenic. cetaphil gentle cleanser seems gentle but it clogged my pores pretty bad. when i was a teenager and even up until a few years ago i had no problems using cleansers with sodium laureth sulfate (the one in most drugstore clean
  13. maybe you are not getting enough antioxidants in your diet? if you dont already you could try taking 1000mg of vitamin c daily and drinking a cup or two of some organic green tea every day. there are topicals that help speed up skin cell turnover. like 10% glycolic acid lotion (i use neostrata). though you may have to wait until you are off accutane to use it. i think if the red marks are staying around for longer than a week or so your issue is going to be more dietary. vitamins, antioxida
  14. it seems to be perfectly safe according to cosdna http://www.cosdna.com/eng/cosmetic_237a261691.html
  15. congrats on getting married maybelline superstay better skin foundation is one of the few drugstore foundations ive found to be truly safe for acnegenic skin http://cosdna.com/eng/cosmetic_bd13227851.html maybelline primers all have some bad acne causing ingredients like stearyl heptanoate. ELF mineral infused primers are good tho http://cosdna.com/eng/cosmetic_154c255878.html my favorite water soluble cleanser for removing makeup is neutrogena fresh foaming cleanser. usually neutrogena drie
