  1. im already on birth control- micette- my doctor said it might help with acne, definetely wouldnt hurt it- im scared to use Diane 35 because someone told me it has terrible negative effects. do you know what they are? also, i dont think my doctor would prescribe this to me. so im not sure i could get it anyway. thanks though
  2. hello all! i have a dilemma and i was wondering if any of you could offer your expert advice Over the last few months, differin gel and clindamycin have stopped working for me (im not sure if they ever worked to begin with.. but thats another story). i went back to the derm and she gave me some totally bs. salicylic acid lotion and told me benzaclin. and my skin got WORSE. i think im immune to all those products. so heres the deal: im immune to differin, benzoyl peroxide, clindamycin, s
  3. hi! im about to run out of antibiotics, and theyre working so well for me still... problem is, my derm wont prescribe me any more. i know that eventually they will stop working for me, but i want to stay on them until that point. does anyone know if theres a way to get them online or from a different source than a derm? thanks a lot!!
  4. hi! has anyone tried to neutrogena moisturizer with sal. acid and retinol??? has it worked for anyone? sal. acid works well with me, but maybe by combining it with moisturizer ingredients it will just clog my pores? what do you guys think? thanks a lot!
  5. i just bought "vibrant" a lotion by Prescriptives for "dull, stressed skin." it says on the back that it "instantly brightens" blahblahblah with "vitamins c, d, e, b12, and b5"...also mulberry and grapeseed extracts. this is suposed to "boost clarity" even you out, etc. ANYWAYS ive been looking for the perfect moisturizer (which ive yet to find) forever and i came across this and thought maybe this could be my moisturizer. does anyone know anything about it, whether it breaks you out, or a

  7. what ingredient or medication works best to get rid of blackheads? i usually get rid of them by either squeezing or using one of those extractor tools- but now i have some on my cheek *yuck* and i never squeeze on my cheek (it scars too easily!) any suggestions for how to get rid of them? if i dont squeeze they usually stay around until the derm takes em out with her extractor tool! thanks a lot!! :wink:
  8. please help someone! its getting worse every day! what should i do
  9. hi! ive been on differin gel at night, benzaclin in morning, and doxycycline for maybe 4 months now, and my skin was doing great! its still relatively clear of big pimples, but recently ive been waking up EVERY morning with 5-10 new clogged pores- you know the underground bumps that you can see if you look closely in the mirror and that inevitably develop into huge disgusting zits! im tempted to go at them with a needle and one of those extractor loops that derms use.. but this is probably a ba
  10. i've heard that while you can't actually become resistant to BP, your skin can "toughen up" to it, and you need progressively higher percentages of BP, until eventually (after 10%) you need to take a break from it for it to work again. how long does it take for you to get to that point, and how long does the break have to be? thanks!!
  11. i had one of those underground whiteheads that seemed to be puffing up a bit, so i overloaded it with differin and now its bright red and it looks like a few layers of skin peeled off! i dont want it to turn into a huge cyst (which many of those underground whiteheads do) but i dont want to burn more skin. any suggestions? thanks!
  12. something ive found works for back acne: before you go to sleep, put an astringent or toner (something with salyclyic acid) on your back with cotton balls. wait for it to dry. then put ammens original medicated powder all over your back. then put on a cotton shirt. also wash it with a salyclyic acid face wash in the shower. i did this for about 2-3 weeks and the back acne cleared up. also wash it with a salyclyic acid face wash in the shower.
