  1. Thank you everyone! I am thrilled about my face, but scared that any day now I will wake up and realize it was just a dream. I don't care if I have to take antibiotics for the rest of my life, I don't even care about the belly aches that come with them. I'd do just about ANYTHING for clear skin, like I'm sure anyone who suffers would. Here's the exact sunblock I've been using:
  2. Hey. It sounds like you're doing some good things to help your skin. I would advise you to see a Dr. if you have health insurance. If not, there are a few things you can do to try and clear this up. For working out, the thing I find most beneficial is planning my workout to end right before my nightly face washing. That way I'm not "dirty" for a length of time and I've heard you burn more calories in your sleep. Perhaps this would be better than splashing your face with water and washing lat
  3. I posted a thread titled "In Need of Advice and Encouragement," but everyone forgot about me. That is mostly because I stopped coming to this site for several months. As you can see from my before pics I was super depressed. To the point where I didn't want to get out of bed in the morning. I didn't want to look in the mirror anymore. I got so caught up in trying every little wive's tale and secret trick and miracle cure. I was desperate. I have very dry skin which makes treating my acne more
  4. Thank you Master Thief for the compliment many moons ago. I'm posting this new post to let everyone know that I'm finally clear, except for ONE zit that popped up during my period last week. How did I do it? The doc put me on differin and a topical antibiotic. After two months I'd improved significantly, but was still unhappy. The doc then added an oral antibiotic and one month later I am clear. I used to put so much crap on my face and now the answer is so simple. This is what I do: Mornin
  5. I didn't do it for a loooong time. But yesterday the one on my jawline was just TOO much for me. I stuck two cu-tips on it to squeeze it out. Very satisfying.
  6. Okay, here's today. Day 8. Please never speak to anyone of this horrible, horrible picture of me.
  7. I took LionQueen's advice and applied my BHA last night 30 minutes before the Differin. It (BHA) stung a little when I first put it on, but that went away quickly. This morning when I woke my dry areas had more wide-spread flakes than usual. Instead of dabbing squalane I used some Paula's Choice moisture gel. I don't know what the heck is going on with the pimple on my chin. Every night it loses its whitehead and every morning it has grown it back... the same pimple! It has done this for three
  8. thanks! :dance: I have that, too. Actually my dad has it real bad and my younger brother has it, too. My dad used to tease me and say I have "chicken skin." It used to be a lot worse than it is now. My right arm is almost completely clear except a very few dusted here and there. My left arm is worse, it can be quite noticable. I haven't tried exfoliating, but I think I'm going to now. What helped to really fade it was moisturizing my arms with a thick body cream EVERYDAY right after my s
  9. QUESTION: I want to incorporate my 2% beta hydroxy acid (paulas choice) into my regimen. This is what I do right now: Morning: Cleanse w/ Paula's Choice Skin Recovery Cleanser wait 20-30 minutes and then apply my RX antibiotic (cly-something. It's liquid and you roll it onto your face) Apply squalane with a cu-tip to dry spots only Evening: Cleanse w/ Paula's Choice Skin Recovery Cleanser Apply pea-to-dime-sized amount of Differin to entire face wait 1 hour and go to bed I want to know when
  10. I know accutane can have severe side affects, but I'd take it. It depends on what YOU want though. If you want to risk the affects at a chance to be free of acne, than that's what you should do. If your acne doesn't bother you and you don't want to risk your sports fun, than you shouldn't. Follow your heart!
