  1. Night: wash my face with cetaphil facial foam (specially formulated for acne prone skin), then put on aczone and alittle atralin on top then sometimes ill pat cerave moisterizer on top after the medicne dries, plus pop my birth control to keep hormones regulated and usually keep acne under control! Morning: same routine minus atralin and birth control, but plus makeup (all non-comenogic and sensative) ... I have recently been using a new foundation that i mix with my usual clinique one.. i got
  2. For some odd reason after 4 months now of being beautifully clear i broke out on my cheeks with four big red cysts. Im not sure if it something i am doing new, the change in weather, or maybe my change in diet (not that i changed it i just recently lost too much weight unintentionally so have been eating whatever id like to gain it back- hence a nice amount of crap) maybe my being alittle more sad for being away from a place i loved this summer and back in school which i dont so much love? I thi

    All Clear

    Hello fellow acne sufferers! Im back!! I always HATED the posts that read "oh im doing so well!" or "Oh my skin is looking so great!" because any time I was on this website or reading or writing in my blog - it was because my skin SUCKED. like Major SUCKED (*if any of you followed me in the beginning of the summer you know what im talking about) SO- Im not going to start bragging about anything...what I am going to do is write to all of you about how I got to where I am now. Basically w

    Summer Time

    well used to be lots of antibiotics...then accutane...then birth control...then completely clear so stopped it all...stupid move on my part cuz it came back full blast..so went back on the only thing that cleared me (birth control) and im clear again and left with the remains- bad bad bad remains
  5. thanks. this definitely cheered me up a bit since i know it is very true.

    Summer Time

    So...the long summer trip is tomorrow..the day ive been waiting for anxiously and nervously is here. I have very mixed feelings towards it because a) my skin is definitely clear! thats for sure. (of course there are those couple of spots here and there that bother me but ill deal) but b) i still look like i have terrible acne because of the scars allll over my cheeks. the scars are bad. very bad. almost as bad as having the acne still. i hate to complain because it is so much better then it
  7. So I am three months into birth control and a month and a half now on solodyn.. things have definitely cleared up since my initial break out but with clear ups come scars. this can be so much worse then acne! because even with the clearer skin it still looks like i have bad acne! I am leaving in a couple of days...so much for being really clear and feeling confident. right now i am not at ALL feeling confident. this sucks. anybody have some words of encouragement? im in need

    Im smiling as i write this right now. I was really scared to do so because i really dont want to jinx it but i think it is time. My face has really cleared up. Big time. I am really happy with how its going but again- i dont want to jinx it so i wont get ahead of myself. but seriously- compared to what i was writing about and how i was feeling and looking only a couple of weeks ago this is a huge turnaround! My right cheek- well lets just say it is SOFT! i havnt felt soft skin on my cheek

    Sooo far.. If you read my blog youll see how awful of a time ive been going through with my battle with acne. But im about to post now my first one in a long long time of how much clearer my skin is looking. check it out
  10. I can relate completely. I also avoid places unfortunately because of how self conscious I am about my skin and how i look. I know people dont see it as bad as i do..but i will always feel that they do. I just keep telling myself to think positive and it will/is getting better!
  11. thanks. I definitely did a good job at changing my attitude this weekend and it felt good.
  12. Well, I have three weeks to go until i see people again that i havent seen in 6 months now. my face has definitely calmed down but the scars dont allow my face to show any progress- they are just as ugly...okay im exxadurating not just as ugly...but ugly still as having bad acne. I want them to fade more so that i dont look awful without makeup! please please please g-d let them fade more i am going to be going to the beach and swimming and sleeping over with friends and i dont want to worry abo
  13. thanks everyone. yea...this is not easy. nothing seems to be making it better. and now- im away for the weekend and forgot the epiduo (my topical medicine) which actually helped when i put it on at night to keep me from breaking out more...damnit whyd i have to do that!? im so scared of leaving and seeing everyone again looking like this!
  14. Clinique is great! i just started using one of their liquid foundations (i cant remember which one) and i love it it covers so nicely. also bare essentials i used for years and it blended really nicely and hid all the red marks.
