  1. hi! looking to see if anyone has a similar story... i had mild acne as a teen and took yaz(generic brand) and it helped immediately!! it was a miracle and i took it up until 2017 because i feel like it made me depressed/gained weight. once i got off it i went from 120 to 105 pounds. i had mild acne nbd for about a year and a half but for the most part my skin was perfectly clear. this past march (24 years old now) my skin broke out horrifically (worse than i’ve ever experienced). it’s
  2. I have been taking isotretinoin in a relatively low dosage for almost four months. The breakouts seem to have stopped, I hope they won't return. However, my nose is full of blackheads, and milia don't seem to go away either. Can I expect those to be helped, or it's almost sure that if so far it hasn't worked for them, I will not in the future either.
  3. I believe wholeheartedly that Dan's regimen should be the new gold standard or "first line defense" treatment recommendation for/from all dermatologist nation wide. Licensed practicing physicians are so quick to turn to oral antibiotics for a first line treatment defense. Even in the age of antibiotic resistance.. yet still commonly and more than not, oral antibiotics such as doxycycline, tetracycline, etc etc are quite often prescribed for a "quick fix" to acne. However the side effects exponen
  4. I've been using tretinoin for over 8 months now and have gone through my purge phase already. However, I was in Florida for a week and took a break from using it. If I start back up, will I purge again? How long of a break can you take without having to go through the purging phase again?
  5. hi everyone .. I'm a 15 year old girl with moderate-severe acne and I've had acne since I was around 11. I turned 15 last august so am around 15 and a half now. nothing and I mean NOTHING got rid of my acne over these years, I literally tried everything, so I went to a derm and asked what I could do. he offered me Accutane. obviously at first I was a bit sceptical about going for it because of all the reviews, but then I was so desperate for my acne to go away that I figured i'd try everything.
  6. So I've been going to the dermatologist for a while now, and I have been purchasing their in office acne products alongside the prescription medicine that they prescribed me. The only issue with the products they sell to me is that they are expensive. They've been charging me over $100 for a cleanser and a triple antioxidant cream. I was wondering I I could just get an in-store acne treatment and use it alongside the prescription medicine for the same results?
  7. So I stopped using accutane 6 months ago and my skin is clear i just have some whitehead on my nose sometimes but thats not really bad , but i’m st Really scared when i want to eat something unhealthy, like today i ate a chocolate and i feel really guilty about it i’m scared that my acne would come back now that i’m off accutane So can you eat whatever you want after you off of accutane or still you need to be careful?
  8. Hi readers, I apologize for not updating in awhile, but I hadn't had much change to write about until now. I just entered my 4th month on Zenatane and have noticed a few new things. First off, my skin is about 99% clear right now! Its a wonderful feeling to be able to just walk outside without any makeup on and feel confident. I have noticed some minor scaring and a few very tiny ice pick marks but I am trying not to be too concerned about them because I know isotretenoin can make scars more
  9. DIET: Being in an acne safe diet means cutting certain foods from your every day diet. Give it a period of 35 days to up to 3 months to see this truly works for you. But trust me, give it a real fair shot! NO: Dairy, Coffee (yes coffee!!), gluten, sugary drinks, alcohol, sugar (cut it out), seaweed, turkey, shrimp, and SOY (yes even soy milk, so no more soy lattes please. Make your self a favor and get more involved into cooking rather than eating out. Restaurants tend to use a ton of che

    Day 1~2

    I decided to document my 6 months journey on Oratane (isotretinoin) and I just this website so I decided it'll be done here! I'm 21 years old and I had acne ever since I reached puberty so it's like since ever! Honestly my acne was never so bad. I had the normal few on my face, but it was when I was in the 8th grade when I had a horrible breakout on my arms, they were tiny pimples and there was at least a couple hundred of them on each arm, they were so small and harmless I thought they'd go
  11. So I only have about 2 or 3 days left on accutane and I'm pretty nervous to go off. I've had persistent chest acne for years so the point where before going on accutane I hadn't gone out in public with a v neck or anything that showed my chest for a solid two years. It's been my biggest insecurity. My chest cleared up instantly on accutane and I can finally not worry about what to wear because I don't have to find something that covers my chest. But as my treatment is coming to an end in noti
  12. The 2 month mark is here! 8 weeks! This is a crucial milestone, people. A crossroad of sorts. This is the time I told myself I'd evaluate my progress and decide if I should continue... Well? What do you guys think? Is it worth sticking it out another month? Another 2 months? Forever?!?
  13. For me, one of the worst parts of suffering from adult acne (moderate and sometimes, pretty darn gnarly) is the anxiety and pain associated with low self-esteem. I NEVER leave the house without makeup, and have a minor panic attack when camping, traveling, or sleep-overs are involved in my plans (how will I wash my face? Will people see me without my makeup? I'll have to get up at 5 am to get ready, just so no one will see my bare skin...). I also model, and you can imagine how hard it is to see
  14. Hello everyone, I've had moderate acne since I was 12/13 (I believe my acne is mostly hormonal and make up related). I'm turning 27 this month, and my struggle has only worsened through adulthood (until recently). I'm sharing my regiment with the world with hope that it will help some of you. (Also note, I just purchased the basic kit through this site, and I will update once used for 30 days). *Failed attempts include: antibiotics, Spirolactone, topical Retinol, ProActive, endless over the co
  15. So where do I start? Hopefully not with the whole puberty talk but just the acne problem that comes with it should do (chuckle). When I was in grade 5 about 11 I got my first zit on my nose. I didn't know until then but that was a pustule where there was a red inflamed look to it. Of course no one in my class was use to it so they called me rudoph the red nose reindeer. Kids can be cruel right? Well needless to say, I just brushed it off until I started middle school in grade 6. That's when my s

    Anti Biotics And Acne

    So a little background knowledge on my skin, at the age of 13 I began to get the occasional breakouts here and there. My skin was not terrible and my 2/3 pimples on my forehead were not something which bothered me or even began to strick me as something "different" when I looked in the mirror. As time progressed I can't remember there being a drastic change but my face slowly worsened and that led me to my first facial product which I ever purchased, well my dad. It was a scrub by the brand "sim
  17. Isn't that what we tell all the dermatologists who we see, now? "Sooo, it all started when..." blah blah blah. So my story sounds a lot like what I've already heard so many times on this site. I'm 25, female, and have battled acne on and off since middle school. In high school, proactiv controlled it somewhat so that it was manageable. But my freshman year in college my periods went crazy, I got ovarian cysts, and my skin opened up a can of whop ass on me. Proactiv was no match for th
  18. Everything was good until now-okay well like 4 days ago. I’ve always had oily skin so I got all excited about dry skin and my makeup staying on my face for once. But alas-I prepared. I asked my derm, I researched though so many blogs on here and found your favorite products. I got the biggest tub of aquaphor, a medium sized tube, and two small tubes-because Accutane is the bible ya’ll swear on in acne court. I got a huge tub of ceraVe cream and cetaphil face wash because my derm said they wer
  19. Today was Day 20 on Spiro (75 mg), Benzoyl Peroxide face wash (PanOxyl 4%), and Atralin gel, aka topical retinoid (0.05%)! Overall, things are improving My face is doing so, so much better. The pink mark on my left cheek from that stubborn zit is fading and healing. There's a small pink mark on my right cheek that's fading. And there's a bit of a red mark healing on my lower chin/jaw from a pore that purged an acne seed yesterday. Right now, my complexion looks so much better! It's mor
  20. Hey everyone! So I'm doing pretty good right now (knock on wood. knock on wood. knock on wood). Summary of weeks 1,2, and almost week 3: Week 1 - Drying out. Skin shedding its top layer. Starting to get small bumps/ more zits. Week 2 - INITIAL BREAKOUT. Happened to forehead first, then in different sections of my face. Broke out on forehead, nose, chin, then right cheek, then left cheek, then chin again a bit, then right jawline, now left jawline a bit. Tons of small bumps, more zits, a
  21. Does anyone have any suggestions on properly putting prescription acne medication on the back? It's so easy to mess areas. Thanks
  22. I am planning to stop taking birth control soon, and I'm worried about my skin breaking out like crazy. Before starting the bc Loryna, my skin never had huge cystic breakouts, and I only got a few pimples on my forehead and on my cheeks before my period. I did not start birth control to help with acne, but ever since I have started bc, I have had more severe acne. Becuase I did not specifically start bc to help with acne problems in the first place, am I at risk for developing
  23. I had a small breakout on both my weeks this week but I think it has to do with the fact that I’m during ‘that’ time of the month. There was one huge one on my left cheek to that was so painful and it was blind too which makes it worse! Eyes and lips extremely dry to the point that I have to put in eyedrops a couple times a day to refresh them and I put on caramex at least 20 times a day!!
  24. This has absolutely not been my week. Maybe because they didn't up my dosage and my skin has gotten used to 60mg a day? Idk. My skin is feeling pretty oily again and my lips are a million times worse. They are almost constantly bleeding and burn because they're so dry and I use every thing under the sun to moisturize them and they refuse to heal. Those I can atleast deal with bc I care so much more about my skin than my lips. But my skin has gotten worse this past week. Four new friends popped u
  25. So I’ve struggled with mild acne for 13 years now. I’ve tried everything under the sun. I finally went to see a dermatologist after all these years and the first thing he said to me was “try a low dose of Accutane”. Now trust me, I’ve done my fair share of research about this ‘miracle drug’. I was very apprehensive at first due to all of the side effects, especially the liver damage! However, after much deliberation I’m now on my 12th day of Accutane. The results have been pretty dra
