    Okie dokie. This was taken the Saturday before school started. My skin is... okay. Not terrible, but not good. It's also on the decline though because of all of this stress! Ahh! Anyway. Yep. I didn't have any make-up on... so... yeah.

    Okay, so my last post may have been a little too optimistic. I am getting some small pimples on my cheeks and my skin is getting oily. Lame-o. Still not near as terrible as it used to be, but I want to see more improvement before school! ... Anyway, just thought I'd post again. P.S. It mosdeff looks like I have two chins. What is up with that?!

    Well, first, thanks! :] Right now I just use Benzaclin in the morning and Differin .3% at night. It seems to be working for me. I go back to the dermatologist at the beginning of September (I think) so that we can change my meds if she doesn't see enough improvement.

    Alrighty, well my skin is looking better! Not perfect, but better! I am not on the Monodox anymore as it made me WAY too sensitive to the sun. Things still seem to be under control after two weeks without it. My skin is getting smoother and I mostly just have residual red spots. My nose is only red b/c I peeled after sunburn and the pimple on my chin is just a 'period pimple' which disappeared after only 2 days! :] Anywho, I'm feeling better now, but hoping it looks even better when school start

    Oh dear.

    Okay, this is my skin as of now. CRAPPY! I'm on Monodox, Differin, and Benzaclin. It's gotten better, but not by much. My skin is still oily, bumpy, and red as ever. I basically want to peel it off and have new, clear skin! How easy would that be? I'll just stick to this and see where it takes me. Almost one more month and I go back to the dermatologist so she can give me something new if this stuff doesn't kick into gear! Btw, did I mention that I HATE acne?

    I have been using Differin, Benzaclin, and Monodox (oral antibiotic) since July 7th now, and I was really excited b/c it seemed to be working really well while I was at camp. My skin was much smoother and I had virtually NO new pimples. Now that I'm home though, my face is going back to normal. Normal = crappy. I have new pimples and my face is REALLY red. Gaahhhh! When will this madness stop? I really HATE my skin! Virtually NONE of my friends have skin problems... I always feel so ugly! :[
  9. Thanks! I'll ask my derm about a new sunscreen. Woah. Small world. I live right outside of Houston in a nearby suburb!
  10. Yeah, your skin does look like it's red. I didn't want to say 'fine', but compared to my terrible skin, I wouldn't be complaining! Okay, so that sounded mean. I do think the DKR could help you out. Why not give it a try?
  11. I'm going to summer camp in about a week, and it lasts for two weeks. It's a YMCA camp near San Antonio, Texas. This will be my fourth year to go. We are outside pretty much ALL DAY long (except for meals and rest time after lunch) so there's a large chance of sun burn. I have been on the DKR for about 4 weeks, and have seen improvements -- my skin is smoother and there isn't as much active acne, but I still have tons of redmarks and my skin is still dry! I mosturize with Neutrogena Oil-Free Moi
  12. Well, I have a dermatologist appt. on July 5th, so I think that I will see what she says. She probably knows a little more than my pediatrician, so I'm hoping she can help. Is it a better idea for me to wait for her opinion?
  13. I never had bad acne until about February of this year and it has gotten increasingly worse! I started Dan K's Regimen about a month ago and have been seeing improvements -- my skin is smoother and there isn't as much active acne, but it's still red all over. I had a physical for camp (I'm going in a week and a half) on Friday and the pediatrician (I honestly don't know why my mom still has me see one... she says they have all my files) prescribed me Tazorac and Benzaclin. I haven't gotten the p
  14. I think it will irritate your skin more if you washed more than twice a day! Good luck!
  15. Okay, so I have been on the DKR for about three weeks. My acne has gotten a little better, and my skin is a little smoother. It was going better until my freaking hormones decided to revv up a couple days ago (uhh... they do every month... if you know what I mean...). But my skin is still wayy dry and is now getting rough! Aahhh! I've also noticed that it's terribly 'dull' now. for the most part, my skin used to be 'bright' even with the acne. I really hate this! When is my skin going to look GO

    Thanks! :] But I don't agree. Not right now at least!

    I look VERY angry! Eek! I don't normally look this angry, I assure you. My skin looks terrible! This is after 3 weeks on the Regimen. I occasionally (okay, a couple times a week) forget to do the stuff at night, so I think that's part of my problem! I'm gunna start having a set time! Should I keep with the Regimen?!

    I don't know why the left side of my face is so much worse than my right... but it's irritating! WTF?! On the Regimen for 3 weeks... I'm still dry and red! Ahhh!

    My 'good side' although I don't really have one... On the Regimen for 3 weeks so far... Probably at least twice a week I fall asleep before I can do the stuff at night. That's part of my problem. My skin is peeling and still red as ever! AHHHH!

    I'm the one on the right. This was at the banquet for the debate team at my school. My skin is so gross!

    This is before I started any treatment. I was at the pool...
  22. Thanks all of you guys! I don't think I'll say anything to her, after all, I did say she could ask. Perhaps I'll just keep on the regimen and show her that I am 'doing something about it'. Revenge sounds pretty righteous right now, but I know that it will just come back to bite me later. *Sigh*
  23. My acne is pretty bad, but I started the regimen 4 days ago, so hopefully it will just get better from here. Anyway, I have a friend named Ashlynn who is complicated. I guess she says what's on her mind. She's the kind of person who will tell you to take a shower if you smell. So we were talking on AIM last night when she asked me if she could ask me a question that was "sensitive but based solely on friendship" (or so she says). I didn't think anything of it, and told her to go ahead. She then
