  1. How do I get a password for The Dump section of the board?

    I am an older member on this board.


  2. LET ME JUST START OFF BY SAYING: I was looking through the blogs on this website, trying to find out about the Regimen and how people react to it, and I read so many blog entries which were filled with "life stories" and "daily activities" of people trying out the Regimen. In my opinion, anybody reading your blog on a website called ACNE.ORG is more interested in your skincare experiences, not your after-school band practice. Therefore, I want to let anybody know that this blog will be solely ab
  3. Let me give you a little run down of what this is all about. My name is Mike (say "MY-KUH") and I'm a 17-year-old male (hopefully). I've been dealing with mild to moderate acne since I was in freshmen year of high school. I've tried a bunch of the standard acne stuff: Clearasil, AcneFree, skinID, Stridex pads. I've even tried several different types of prescription acne treatments. But nothing has ever given me what I wanted. Inner peace? No. There has never been a treatment that has fulfille
  4. DAY 4: 10:30 P.M. I continued my experiment by using lots of BenzaClin and allowing my face to dry before talking again, and it was clear that once it was dry and hardened and then I started moving my face, the edges around my mouth turned whiter, just as I had suspected. Also, I had mentioned in this morning's that my chin has some whiteness to it after I put it on, but it might have just been dead skin. Well, after taking a shower, pat-drying my face, and waiting a few minutes for my face to
  5. DAY 4: 11:00 A.M. It's the first weekend of the school year! And it a three... day... weekend? My school is ridiculous. So, still three active pimples, maybe some whiteness but I didn't feel like taking the chance until I was sure. The one towards the middle of my foreword seems to have flattened out, don't know if I was just saying on it weird or if it naturally "opened", but it seems flatter. I used a normal amount of BenzaClin this morning and even though I did the "moving face" thing it sti
  6. DAY 3: 9:30 P.M. I applied lots of BenzaClin (a little less than normally for the night) and I kept moving my mouth and and eyes while it was drying, and it didn't turn white like normal. I guess after it dries, when you move your mouth a lot it starts to flake. But using this method it didn't flake at all. Neither of the three pimples have come to a head, so they can't be popped yet, but I've been applying 10% BP spot treatment overnight to try and bring them to a head, and this has been worki
  7. DAY 3: 7:00 A.M. I had to do this one at night because I woke up way late this morning. For perspective, I woke up at 6:45 and the bus leaves at 7:10. I wiped off the 10% BP spot treatment that I was using and I had a big pimple come to a head over my eyebrow. Unfortunately, I had no time to pop it, so I just left it how it was. I took a shower, I'm using Redken For Men pH Balancing Cleanser now (out of Clinique). It basically is a bar of blue soap. I applied WAY too little BenzaClin today, I r
  8. DAY 2: 7:00 P.M. I lathered a bunch of BenzaClin on before I went to sleep. I used spot treatment on several pimples that seem to be forming. A couple are forming near my hairline, probably as a result from the gel I've been putting in my hair. Oh well, they seem small so hopefully nothing will really take off.
  9. I just started a new medication called BenzaClin two days ago and the pores alongside my nose that were clogged seemed to "eject" the plug, with make a tiny hard spot that is nearly invisible unless you're looking up-close in a mirror. I used a needle to pick the spot off and it left a tiny tiny hole, basically an open pore. Has anyone else that their plugs "come up" and form a small hard white spot?
  10. I wouldn't stop using any treatment until I got into my twenties. I am currently fifteen. However, my dad had acne and said he only had it during freshman and sophmore year of high school, and after that it was minimal. I am currently a sophmore, so I'm hoping the treatment won't make me last longer, but people have to grow out of it sometime (unless they've got some type of adult acne).
  11. DAY 2: 6:30 A.M. So today is the first day of school (woo-hoo). Applying lots of BenzaClin didn't seem to have much of an effect, neither positive nor negative. I did get a new pimple but it's actually in my hairline, so you can't see it, and I can't really treat it, which is frustrating but it doesn't matter if it can't be seen. Since it was the first day of school I was afraid if I used a lot that it would whiten up, so I used as little as possible to cover my face. I do have some small, hard
  12. DAY 1: 9:30 PM I noticed that either the BenzaClin was turning white around my chin (just a little) as the day wore on, or it might have just been a little skin peeling. Since tomorrow is the first day of school I was faced with whether to use a TON in hopes to minimize existing acne and prevent new breakouts, or if I should only little to avoid irritation. I decided to slap a whole lot of medication all over my face, multiple layers that took time to work into my skin. It really tightens your
  13. DAY 1: 11:00 P.M. Unfortunately I overslept, not good considering school starts tomorrow and I'll have to be getting up at six in the morning. I took a shower, using Clinique again, pat-dried, same as yesterday. I didn't have any new pimples, which is good, but also none of my existing pimples came to a head overnight, so they can't be popped. When applying the BenzaClin, it didn't feel as tacky as it did yesterday. I don't know if I used more, or used less, but the feeling was definitely dif
  14. It would be great for you to have a second course of Accutane, but unfortunately it's a strong prescription med that didn't completely erase your problem the first time, so they might be unwilling to prescribe it to you a second time, now that your acne is light and it didn't completely work the first time.
