  1. All I can say is hang in there! It took me 1 and a half month to get past the initial breakout. It could be longer for you if you have severely clogged skin. But it WILL get better.
  2. Another update after 4 days. 99% clear! Just acne marks and scars left. They're healing slowly but surely. The skin looks smooth and beautiful under a light coverage foundation. Here''s my skincare routine: -AM: Wash: Johnson''s Baby Shampoo Moisturiser/sunscreen: Neutragena Dry touch spf 45 (I find this is moisturising enough) Foundation: Maybelline Fit Me (very light and dewy, I have comibantion skin.) -PM: Wash: Baby shampoo again Just my forehead: (Wait 20 minutes) Isotretinion

So naturally I thought it wasn't acne but folliculitis. I took anti fungal meds, shampoo and god knows what and they got soooooo worse. I gave up and finally used topical isotretinoin as a last resort a month ago on 1st of March. Both tretinoin and isotretinoin are retinoids, iso is
  7. First let me start by saying that I've had extremely clear skin all my life. Never gotten any acne of any sort, I'm 20 now. Then after I started to smoke and eating lots of junk food, I started getting the occasional pimple, but ONLY on my forehead. This went on for 3 years until after a course of antibiotics, these tiny flesh colored bumps appeared all over my forehead. They were small at first, barely visible, but as time went by some of them became fully blown cyst pimples! Having puss and a
