  1. i couldn't find olive oil but I did find vegetable oil. Would taking accutane with 28 grams of fat (4 saturaged, 0 strans, 16 poly, and 6 mono; I know, math doesn't add up, but I'm just reading the bottle's label) be good enough to ensure most of the accutane is absorbed?
  2. Hi guys. I was wondering if you could help me out. I see that some people on this forum have used the Clenziderm system from Obagi. I was wondering if any of you could tell me what color the serum is. I bought my first Obagi Clenziderm system at an actual beauty clinic and the serum was yellow from the beginning then. However, the one I bought off ebay recently has a white / clear color serum, and it doesn't feel as strong as the other bottle that I was using. Any help? Is the serum supposed
  3. Well, I was thinking more along the lines of of the information found here: http://www.acne.org/types-of-acne.html Is the regimen more or less effective against certain types? I think I suffer from "papules" mostly.
  4. Can anyone help answer this question? What kind of Acne does Dan's regimen work best on? I am using Retin-A, I've been on it for at least 1/2 a year, and at first I saw hopeful signs. I seem to have stagnated now though. I was wondering if anyone can tell me what kind of acne Dan's regimen works best on. I am thinking of applying the regiment twice daily, but still going to sleep with the Retin-A. Any thoughts on this? Any help is greatly appreciated. I am 20 yrs old, and when my skin was
  5. Hey Irin. Just wanted to see how you were progressing. Well, I don't know how long ago I (re)started with RAM 0.1%, but luckily my prescriptions don't expire until November. I'm on tetracycline 500mg 2x a day, plus the RAM. I don't think I'm going back to the derm until I am running out of prescriptions. So my face has improved, but very very slowly. Acne is actually no longer the main problem. I have maybe 4 or 5 pimples in total, but that's spread across my chin and cheeks, so no biggie real
  6. It takes a very long time to work. I'm not sure if 12 wks is realistic, but good luck. Don't get discouraged if it is not that great. it will work eventually, believe me.
  7. Great. Seems like things are looking up. Keep giving us updates. :-)
  8. You really don't look that bad at all. However, you, like me, probably want clear skin, not "not that bad" skin. I am on retin-a as well. I will wait for a year, and if I don't see clear skin by then, on to the next thing. So far, I see improvements, nothing close to clear. I am pretty good about not picking my face, but sometimes it still happens. I get peeling once in a while, maybe one day out of the week, but nothing major. I use sunblock as well. Best of luck.
  9. Megaman, I'm sorry to hear about your situation. You know guys, a lot of us have to struggle with acne (not many like megaman), but for the most part, we are able to see a derm and at least see if there's anything out there that can help. Even if it is disappointing for some (most?), at least we know we tried everything. I wouldn't mind if megaman set up some kind of link where we can donate money for his cause (say paypal). Hell, imagine what 1/2 of us donating $5 can do? I would definitely d
  10. Please do keep us updated. I am using Retin-A Micro 0.1%. I am trying not to keep track of how long I've been using it. I will look into it soon (I wrote the day down on a notepad). I have heard a lot of people say that 2, even 3 months is much too soon to tell if RAM will work or not. There was this great external article about a girl that used RAM for a year, even though she thought it wasn't doing a damn thing, and now she has the best skin of anyone she knows. Also, I've looked at what other
  11. Does anyone else have a problem with Retin-a leaving a white fluff on the face after application? I would like to have the retinoid on my face 24/7, but that seems hard to do considering that people will think I don't wash my face.
  12. Hey guys. I was reading the sticky on the inventor / discoverer of BP & Retin-A, and he said that you know that retin-a is working if your skin peels every week or so. I have read some of the reviews, and a substantial amount of people said that, even though they did not peel, Retin-A still worked for them (in fact, most of these people gave retin-a the best reviews). I was using retin-a, and after 2 months, I decided to quit, since I didn't see much improvement. However, I am back on th
  13. MissDC, the Retin-A probably left you with a very thin layer of skin. It's an exfoliant (that's why you peel so much). You probably need to let your skin build up its layers before you can use BP again. BP is a mild bleach, but it's not so mild when you only have a thin layer of skin.
