  1. I went to get a facial and it did wonders for me skin, I know its too early to tell but I stopped with the regimen and only been using the aha at night for about 5 days. My skin is flat, there are no breakouts, only a few spots but I can deal with them.
  2. Yes, just like natalilucy said maybe try decreasing the amount of bp you are using, that is what I have been doing for the past two days. I am on my 6th week and still breaking out, still have not seen a great improvement but I am trying to be patient and think that it is coming soon. Good luck thank you! Let me know how it goes for you!! I guess we all just have to be super patient xx I thought after decreasing it I started seeing an improvement now my chins clearing up but I have break outs o
  3. i might try this, Its been 6 weeks for me and I am still breaking out, so I will try stop using the moisturizer for now and maybe add some more bp at night. Do you use the aha?
  4. My worst breakouts so far happen on week 3 and week 5. I also decreased the amount of bp. This week I had 4 new breakouts but 2 are gone, only 2 are left which were cystic but aren't as big as the one I got on week 5. Tonight I will no longer use the moisturizer, only the aha and see if that helps. I am also going to a spa tomorrow, I will start a treatment called Iclear phototherapy. The treatments can be a bit pricey but it will be way cheaper for me than going on Accutane.
  5. Acne sucks, period. I never thought this will be so psychologically debilitating. I am 6 weeks in the treatment with absolutely no signs of progress. I break out continuously. I still get cystic breakouts and my left cheek is almost covered in them, I have never seem my face this horrible. I never ever want to leave my house so I am highly considering going on Accutane, I have mild to moderate acne but I am feeling desperate. I received the booklet for Accutane from my dermatologist, it is truly

  7. yeah I'm pretty sure that when I have my scan they are going to find cysts aswell. I never break out on my forehead either it's completely clear and my right side was always the worse now my left side has started to look just as bad. The acne being worse on different sides could be down to the side you sleep on or the side you hold your phone to your face. I've tried the washing my pillow cases every other day and didn't really work out. Yewh you shohld get the test my derm reccomended that I
  8. it's really hard isn't it.. I can't look people in the eye and don't go out on nights out to stop myself from wearing makeup as I'm scared even if I put a bit of concealer on it'll go crazy! I have been on accutane before and definitely don't want to go back down that route xx Thank you. I'll stick it out x It truly is, I was feeling exceptionally depressed last night and used this site to vent, here you can see my rant http://www.acne.org/messageboard/topic/354110-help-dealing-with-depression-
  9. Same here, I am on my 6th week and still breaking out consistently. I am doing this before going on Accutane since nothing else has worked for me. I am ready to give up as well
  10. Hello all, I am feeling particularly depressed tonight. A little about myself, I am a 27yr old female. I've had completely clear skin all throughout my life, never wore makeup. EVER. All that changed 5 years ago, I started breaking out, I would only breakout once or twice a month but it was always cystic. I decided to go to the dermatologist and was prescribed with clindamycin and differin. It made my skin flawless again for a year almost 2, so I stopped using it. Then my acne came back, with a
  11. oyinkan98 Well, a least its only one, I keep breaking out ughhh. I only use the aha at night, I mix it with the moisturizer. It says it can make you very very sensitive to sunlight so it is better to apply at night. NatalielucyI never breakout on my forehead, ever so I really don't bother putting any bp there. my problem is my left cheek, I never breakout on the right one but ever since I started putting bp I've had 2 breakouts there, which it isn't bad. All of my breakouts are happening on my
  12. It might have been the aha, since my skin was doing better. I also decreased the amount of BP, by now I should be using two full pumps but I only do a pea size amount in the morning and half a finger's length at night. I have also been taking pics and yeah it def looks a lot worse than when I started. Like I said I will try to give this two full months before stopping. I woke up with 2 more breakouts today. I have never had so many in my life but I am trying to stay positive. I added it beca
  13. I added it because I had no active breakouts, but I broke out again and still kept using it. I'm on week 6 and got 3 more new spots, not too big, 2 are very tiny and only one is visible, but it is still soo frustrating. I want to stop breaking out already. Wish I was one of the people that stopped breaking out after 2 weeks or so. That's so weird, I had 1 huge breakout in week 5 also lol Ha, weird indeed. Is it getting any better for you? I just started on my 6th week and still no drastic im
  14. That's so weird, I had 1 huge breakout in week 5 also lol Ha, weird indeed. Is it getting any better for you? I just started on my 6th week and still no drastic improvement, makes me want to give up. Still have like 3 minor breakouts on my cheek and FOREHEAD and my face got so dark, like darker than my neck, but I heard that happens because of the peeling. So so close to giving up but I won't lol! I'll go on for 2 months. That's so weird, I had 1 huge breakout in week 5 also lol Ha, weird inde

  16. I've been on the regimen almost four weeks and I haven't experienced any redness since my first week but I'm in the same boat as you right now my skin is so dry and flaky and also am experiencing a break out the right side of my chin has had 3 large pimples on it since k started and when one seems to go down another one pops up this is so frustrating but apparently we have to keep going ! Hahaha yes! I'm going through a lot more than just one breakout though. All my redness has seemed to come
  17. It def gets worse, I am also on my 6th week and still experiencing new breakouts. They say don't give up or wait until the second month, I hope I see some improvement soon because I am close to giving up

  19. Hey! I broke out HORRIBLY on week 3, it was the worst. I was so happy on week 4, no new breakouts. I am just finishing with week 5 and broke out again. The difference is that I only got one new cystic breakout, not the many I got on week 5. It is huge but hey, it is only one. I also added the aha and my skin is no longer flaky nor dry. I hope this means that my skin is improving, i just want to stop breaking out already!! Hang in there!
  20. I just finished with week 5, week 4 was better, no breakouts, but this week I broke out again, the only difference is that I only have on cyst, instead of the many I got on week 3 so I guess it is an improvement, I added the aha and my skin is a lot less flaky and dry and feels nice to the touch. I hope this means that is improving. I just want to stop breaking out altogether. Thanks so much! I am trying, hopefully the purging face will be over soon I guess patience is key... and also a
  21. Hey guys, I need your help! I've only been on the regimen for 3 weeks, I know its a short time to notice any difference, let me just say that I never had severe acne, only mild to moderate but its persistent and whenever I get a breakout they're usually cysts. I decided to try the regimen after trying everything else, going to the dermatologist, you name it, I've tried it, and this is my last resort before going on accutane. The first two weeks were ok, did not get worse but did not see any sign
