  1. Retin-A is an exfoliant, so using other exfoliants will just irritate your skin. You should hold of on the other exfoliating products for now.
  2. Are you breaking out more than normal now that you started your new job? Sounds like it is caused by the stress of a new job.
  3. Hey, I've been trying to tell everyone that Accutane is not what's it's cracked up to be, but no one seems to be listening. I'm on your side. Sorry you had such a bad experience.
  4. Thank you! This thread had made me feel more normal. I'm sure the thick stage make-up the celebs have to pile on for work doesn't help their situation.
  5. most of my girl friends had mild acne while pregnant (but did have problems previously). However, for one lucky friend, pregnancy cleared her severe acne. She has been clear for five years now. I am hoping that may be my final solution, but she seems to be more of an anomoly.

  8. Well, I guess I'll try it and let ya'll know.
  9. I do not think the side effects are rare. Many people on this site have shared side effects, some okay, some down right scary. I suffered from depression about four months into the treatment, and it didn't go away until I was done. As a woman, I am worried about the possible birth defects, and the possible bone issues (Vitamin A weakens bones). The Accutane didn't solve my acne, either. After seven months of Accutane, my skin was so beautiful for about a year and a half, and then the acne s
  10. My dermo told me to try the "best soap in the world" called simple scents. http://simplescents.com/index.htm/ It seems all the soaps have oil in it. Am I not supposed to be avoiding products with oil? Has anyone else tried this soap?
