  1. Yep, I guess they have their "professional pride". But anyway my main question was, how has it worked out with other people? Have you had a break out just after finishing accutane and then kept on going clear and stayed clear?
  2. I've been thinking the same thing. When I visited my derm the last time I asked about the 120 - 150mg/kilogram -dosage, but he said it didn't matter. He claimed that my 100mg/kilogram was enough. Goddamn if I have to get another course for this kind of shit caused by a stubborn derm.
  3. The last time I visited my derm was a month before my course ended and he said "everything's looking fine, no need to extend the course". Back then I was crystal clear. But during the last few weeks my face has started to show bad signs. I haven't had another appointment with my derm about this new matter. I have been off the drug for couple of weeks now. I recall that the time between isotretinoin courses should be atleast 2 months. So I thought I'd wait atleast a month before going back to m
  4. Hey all. I've had mild,persistant acne for many years now. So I took 5 months of isotretinoin, 8000 mg's all together. I weigh 80kg's, so it makes about 100mg/kilo. Now I've been off the drug for few weeks, and it seems that acne is coming back. Some small pustules and blackheads have appeared in matter of days. Is this normal? Did this happen to you before you got completely clear? Should I take another, harder course? Something like 150mg/kilogram? Thank you for your help.
  5. So what you are saying is that I can't never ever lift weights? Fuck...Not even after Accutane? This is bullshit.
  6. Hey. I've been using accutane gor 2 months exactly now. First month I was on 40mg/day and 2nd month 60mg/day. My acne is mild. The thing I'm wondering is that does sweating cause pimples? I've started to lift weights after a long time and after one week of sweating at the gym I got few spots on my face. Before I had none, thanks to accutane. So I'm confused. Is this an IB or does the sweating cause pimples?
  7. Well I'll get my pure, organic, cold-pressed Jojoba-oil in mail next Monday. Im pretty sure the real stuff will work better than the shit I had. I've tried so many lotions and creams this year, that I don't have money or interest to keep this kind of going up. So hopefully Jojoba works for me!
  8. Oh my fecking God! I just found out that the "jojoba" that I use has Paraffinum liquidum in it, in other words mineral oil! Why in the hell do the manufacturers recommend acne-sufferers to use that kind of garbage? In to trash can that bottle went. Im so fecking pissed off right now!
  9. OK, I've been using Jojoba oil for a week now, and some pimples have come up. I'll use this for a week or two more, hoping I'll clear up without having to stop using Jojoba. Before this I was 100% clear thanks to BP, but at the same time I was dry as Sahara. But I'd rather be dry and clear than moisturized and pimply. Hopefully this is just an initial breakout and that it will pass. Fingers crossed (and toes too).
  10. Here's the ingredients list: Aqua . Glycerin . Dicaprylyl Carbonate . Butylene Glycol . Dimethicone . Tapioca Starch . Glyceryl Stearate Citrate . C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate . Myristyl Myristate .

Iodopropynyl Butylcarbamate . Citric Acid Anything that clogs pores? I'll stop using this for now, I guess it clogs atleast my pores.
  11. The box says: Eucerin Hydro-Balance Refreshing Hydrating Cream. And it's meant for sensitive facial skin.
  12. Hi ya all. I'm new to the asking, but I've been around these forums for a long time. Anyway, my question is this: Can a new moisturizer cause some imperfections before it "adapts" to your skin? About 2 weeks ago I started using Eucerins Hydra-Balance Fresh, because my Nivea left me very flaky. Eucerin did the job, but now I've got few of these red dots on my face, that fade away in 4 days. Eucerin says it is oil-free and non-comedogenic. It's "working" ingredients are Isomerine and Alanine. Do
