  1. Wow it has been quite some time since I've been on here but I'm back and still suffering from acne So anyways I asked my derm about going on Accutane since I've tried literally everything but she refused since my acne is not bad enough so I decided that instead of going down the never ending road of topical treatments that I would take matters into my own hands and try something different. I have decided to start taking 10000 IU's of Vitmain A every day along with a zinc supplement at nigh

  4. Hi I was wondering if you think differin is worthed?? im currently on Duac and im taking an antibiotic called oracea which is basically doxy just a lower dose and my derm told me to use the differin along with the duac but to be honest im terrified of differin after all the horrendous things ive heard bout it like the Inital breakout and the flaking and the redness and im scared to try it so if you have any advice or any suggestions of whether or not i should try it then i would appreciate it.

  6. Okay so i went to the derm fer the first time ever and she prescribed me 100 mg of doxycycline a day and differin to be applied at night only.....now ive been taking the doxycycline but i am flippin TERRIFIED to try the differin. I have Mild to moderate acne and ive only been using duac for it which was prescribed by my regular doc like a year ago i havent cleared up and im still breaking out although it did clear up my chin forehead and nose ares but my cheeks are still breakin out like crazy
    -Clearer skin -less oil -still working and it s been over a year -reduces size of pimple sooner -Dry skin -Takes about 3 weeks to see improvement -slight redness -flaking -didnt fully clear my skin It worked and is still working pretty good and its already been over a year. I have suffered from mild to moderate acne for about 4 years now...Im 17 by the way...anywho i was prescribed this duac gel by my doc and when i started using it my skin became unbearably dr

  8. lol the title makes me giggle anyways i was wondering if you all could answer some questions for me. Does anyone know what kind of nuts make you break out the most or what nuts are okay to eat like Almonds and Cashews and stuff so please if you have any ideas on the subject of nuts (lol) Then pleaze dont hesitate to tell me thanks:D
  9. Okay so ive been eating alot healthier for about a year now but ive fallen into the same routine of what i eat and im getting sick of it i would like to try out some new recipes that are healthy but sadly dont really know of any....Plus some of the recipes i do know of are extremely hard and time consuming but im willing to try it if it gets me something new to eat....although i refuse to eat anything that swims lol...so if you have any healthy recipes you can share with me whether it be breakfa
  10. okay in my experience when i stopped drinking caffeine and milk i stopped getting those nasty under the skin bumps (cysts) that would stay for months so i would reccomend finding out what food may be causing you to break out...That also may include gluten or eggs...i would also reccomend leaving sugar out of your diet as sugar makes most people break out. I also reccomend you see a doctor or dermatologist for this they will be able to prescribe you somehting better then OTC products.. Best of l
  11. i used to have your problem as well but i switched moisturizers to cerave and then i added some drops of extra virgin olive oil and its cleared up the flakes quite nicely or you could try jojoba it works as well hope that helped!
  12. okay every line you just wrote pretty much applys to me...i used to have really bad self confidence i hated myself because i had acne i never wanted to go out and i hated looking at myself in the mirror.. i also never looked people in the eyes and used my hair to cover up my face...but now a days i have learned to stop stressing and to go out with my friends and feel good that i am alive...you have to live your life while your still young cuz if you dont then your going to end up being 30 years
  13. omg!!! i was reading this and every single one I was like check , check, check.I have done or still do all of these except the makeup one. Thank you. It made me smile and tear up at the same time Lol your welcome i was sure someone could relate to me on at least one of these things lol:)
