  1. Hello everyone! I haven't posted in here in a while (which is a good sign considering I've been clear since 2009). I've recently decided (literally recently, as in yesterday) that I don't want to take birth control anymore. I have been taking it since October of 2008, till last week and quite frankly I don't want to rely on hormones for the rest of my life, especially when it comes to my skin. A bit of background on my skin: - I started to get acne in the 6th grade - I tried a lot of over t
  2. Thank you. Do you consider what I have on my forehead to be acne? Right now I am looking at my skin in the mirror every like 5 minutes lol... and it looks like extremely enlarged pores. Do these ever go away?
  3. Hi guys.... now I have pretty mild, to none acne majority of the time.. but lately something has been going on that ISN'T normal at all. My forehead used to be very smooth textured looking and free from big bumps, and got the occasional pimple here and there. Used to be verryyyy smooth to the touch. Then out of nowhere towards the ending of January I started to seee my skin looked very unsmooth. It looked almost like it was peeling, which I didn't make a big deal out of because from time to time
  4. Hey BreannaBreanna Thanks for getting back to me with a response. I personally do not think it is the retin a because I have been using retin-a since October 09 with no problems... and the rest of my skin seemed to have cleared up when I started the new form of retin a... just this area is giving me a hard time. Its weird though because like you asked if this area is usually a problem area, the answer is no. My forehead usually stays the clearest... I have been using the retin a micro and cli
  5. Haha, yeah blackberry cameras suck -__-... but I was actually talking about the middle area where it kinda seems like there is a cluster of small bumps or something. I dont know its beginning to really irritate me!
  6. Are these small bumps that will go away with time, or pores? This is my forehead and my forehead is usually the most clearest/t/smoothest part of my skin but a while back it began looking kind of bumpy and what not. I've been using retin a micro at night and clindasol as a moisturizer in the morning (both prescribed by my derm) and they have worked wonderfully as I don't get any more breakouts anywhere on my face, and my forehead area has improved a bit... but I just don't know if this is as goo
  7. Usually my forehed is very smooth and clear looking, but lately its been the exact opposite. My skin feels smooth when I touch it and looks alright under certain lightings but it's been so weird lately,and rough looking. At first I thought it was a rash/pimples but usually that clears up within 2-3 days, and I have not changed my skin care routine that I've been doing for over a year now. This has been going on for a little over 2 weeks now and I just want my clear skin back My overall sk
  8. SkyLynn - no it's LIGHTER, like noticably lighter in that area. Saved By Grace - That was what I was thinking, but it doesn't improve when I leave the area alone.
  9. Hey guys, I have a skin problem (obviously, lol) that I am unable to identify what is it. To give a quick background, I was on 2 courses of accutane first one was on October 2008, and second one was September 2009, and both went great and for the most part (95%) my skin is clear from pimples, except for breakouts here and there every few weeks. During my 2nd course of accutane, I experienced discolouring above my lip/right underneath my nose... and that was the ONLY place I experienced this.
  10. I'm so upset, I really thought this would be the solution. I should have stayed with my regimen before hand. When I went to the derm, I asked him if the differin would cause my skin to be worse before it gets better - he said no because my skin was already cleared, but it just wouldn't do AS good of a job at keeping my skin that way ( WHAT? lol ) I'm on my period this week, so I hope that's contributing to the breakouts that I have. I have tiny little red bumps on my upper lip and a bit on my ch
  11. UPDATE - I stopped using the vitamin a liquid and was just using the differin cream, and spectro pads, for a while the small bumps i get underneath my nose/above my lip were GONE completely, like they usually do. Now they've returned, and so has small bumps on my temple, and a random spot.... I'm not sure what to do atm. I have a feeling it has something to do with my period coming along, I'm supposed to be getting it this week, but I just find it weird because I'm on Yasmin birth control pill,
  12. Hey guys, I need some help, advice, reassurance, all the above! lol. Well, I've been using vitamin a (retin a) liquid for about a year now, but the irritation got wayyyy out of hand. It did an excellent job majority of the time when keeping my skin clear, but i was always flaky and irritated, especially on my upper lip area which is noticeably redder than the rest of my face. I decided to go to a different dermatologist last week Thursday, and he decided to put me on Differin CREAM 0.1%, I used
  13. Hey guys, I'm on the search for the perfect POWDER foundation. A couple months ago I tried mac mineralized skin finish natural in deep dark and looooooved the way it made my skin looked, but the ingredients in it broke me out like a b*tch! I read about it later and found out that it broke out most people with acne prone skin. The only problem was that I looovee the way how it made my skin look and it felt extremely light and natural. I was wondering if there is any other product like this that d
  14. I agree, but that's too hard to do! Ugh 6 months there's gotta be another way! lol
