  1. lol the water is fine here imo. I would blame the breakout on different sleeping patterns, probably a change in diet?, and general stress. also if you were out drinking for freshers week or are just drinking more then that might be a cause. I find after 1 or 2 nights out heavy drinking my face goes to shit about 1 or 2 days after. and then I have to pay the consequences for the next week or so.
  2. why haven't the mods deleted or edited the original post yet? clearly is just an advert.
  3. people with acne have to stop comparing themselves to people who don't actually suffer from acne. sure there may be lots of people who have perfect skin and some who only suffer from the occasional spot, but that's just the way it seems to be. we can't try to copy these peoples lifestyles in order to get clear skin ourselves. I'm sure that if this was the case we would have found out what is causing us to all have acne in the first place. thats the thing I really cannot get my head round. We st
  4. necro I know my 6lbs is not a completely lean gain. but I wouldn't say I've put on 5lbs of fat. I'd say most of the weight will come from the fluid that will be in my muscles. Mainly because I started taking creatine. Anyway ever since I have been eating 3500+ a day my face is looking like complete shit again . I don't know whether its because I'm eating so much, or whether its because the antibiotics I was on have finally worn off after 6 months. I'm blaming both for the pretty bad breakouts
  5. I find it works better if you space out your meals when bulking. I try to eat 6 or 7 meals a day. About 2 hours apart. Each is about 300/350 ish calories, except for breakfast which is around 700 and either my dinner, or post workout meal around 700 also. Been working pretty well, and I gained 6 pounds in 3 weeks.
  6. I think its only available in the UK? Not sure. It's PhD Nutrition Pharma Whey PhD have some seriously good products. Their whey protein shakes are so smooth and tasty, and they also do great flapjacks. I wonder why they put the taurine in though? As soon as I saw it had taurine in it, I had to buy some. Turns out its the best whey I've bought.
  7. hmm come to think of it I stay in my room a lot of the day and rarely have windows open lol. Gonna start sleeping with windows open and keep my room aired. interesting theory .
  8. I think it was these anti-biotics that helped me get the clearest skin I have ever had with acne. Atleast for a 3 month period anyway. It took about 2 or 3 months for full effect, and then it lasted about 2 or 3 months. And now my skin has gradually gotten worse and worse.. and now looks worse than before I was on them.. I was taking them with differin and another topical anti-biotic. Don't know which to lay the blame on really, but its a bummer having such clear skin and then having it happen
  9. weeird I was thinking this the other day.. and then I saw this thread. About 2 months ago I had the clearest skin I have ever had since I started getting acne. I think mostly it was down to the fact I had been put on anti-biotics and differin a few months before that. However after about 3 or so months of clear skin it gradually got worse.. and worse.. and now it looks much worse than before I went on all the anti-biotics. My regimen is still the same, but my skin is just not the same as it u
  10. hmm ok. anti-bitoics are easy enough to take. and I guess if my face is feeling really dirty ill splash it with water. going without mirrors is gonna be a challenge. but I feel it will be good for me.. I have a small camping mirror.. guess it's for the best if I leave it. thinking of maybe taking the moisutrizer incase my skin dries out.. it has a natural tendancy to do this..
  11. Well tommorow I leave for a music festival and I will be camping for 4 nights. I'm wondering whether to bring my anti-biotics, face wash, mousturizer, zineryt (topical anti-biotic) and differin and keep up my regimen. Which is.. Morning: Take anti-biotic, wash, apply zineryt and then moisturize. Night: Wash and apply differin. Or.. leave it all behind and forget about the regimen for the days that I'm there? What do you think? I think my skin could do with a break.. its been on this regimen f
  12. well just an update.. my skin after 3 weeks is looking a LOT better. Still quite bad, but such an improvement. Still breaking out, but nowhere near as bad. Not had a horrible 8+ new spots day since I began. Those days were what gradually ruined my face before.
  13. I normally go at night. So I'll just wash my face and then apply my differen and then thats me good for the night.
  14. yay to weights. cant wait to start again after a month break. Makes you feel good no doubt.
  15. Have you tried the Regimen on this site? From what I have gathered that sort of acne reacts well to the regimen. I would definately try it if you havnt, before even considering accutane.
