  1. So I am sick AGAIN. I have a cold which is usually not a big deal but this has been bad. It's going on a week now and it's only gotten worse... no energy, sore throat, fever / chills... ugh. I am ready to be healthy again. As far as my skin, it took a turn for the worst. I started taking probitoics (Dr Ohhria's Probiotics Professional Formula, paid $80 for them!!!) in early March and I think those are the cause. I got them after my last sickness thinking it would help to balance out my stomac
  2. My skin now is the worst it's been in 6 years. Being as vain as I am it's actually pretty traumatic and I've been finding excuses not to leave the house. Having taken a (9 month?) course of isotretinoin (Roaccutane, Accutane) when I was 14 or so I've been more or less acne-free for a long time, until literally a few months ago when, slowly but surely, they starting cropping up out of nowhere. I suspect that because they're concentrated around my chin and, when I'm PMSing, my jawline, t
  3. I started thinking that maybe my last post was a little spammy so I'm just gonna say real quick that I am in no way affiliated with Clarisonic or any distributor. I've been lusting after one for about a year now and scored a good Black Friday deal lol so that being said - DANG! It has been so cool and dry in SoCal lately, my skin will not stop looking red and peeling! I don't want to kick Triretnoin from my regimen so I decided I'm going to back off the Clarisonic a little bit and only do it
  4. So I just tried my Mia 2 for the first time in the shower this morning... I applied my Avar Sulfur wash straight to the brush and got down to business. It was interesting, I think it'll take a few tries for me to really get the hang of it but here's how I approached it: Started on my chin and worked my way around clockwise - I wanted the worst/greasiest part of my acne on the left side of my face to be last so I didn't spread it around on my face. I noticed after my face felt incredibly soft.
  5. Tomorrow's food/regimen will be (I have veeeeery limited food options for certain reasons...): On face: Lotion, makeup (I'll check which kind I use tomorrow)Breakfast: Wheat toast and peanut butter Apple Snack: Banana Lunch: Carrots Hummus Apples Snack: Raw almonds Dinner: Salad (non dairy dressing) Cooked vegetable of some type Wash face with Purity Cleanser, some Nivea lotion (keep it simple, no picking...which I already did tonight. Ugh.) Anyway, I'm t
  6. Hello everyone! I'm on day 98 of Spiro, today makes exactly 14 weeks. I got super discouraged on Saturday because my skin looked terrible. My left cheek was so red and irritated that it was all I thought about all day. So I've been trying to drink lots and lots of water and be extra gentle when I wash my face. Yesterday morning I used my Cetaphil Gentle Cleanser and last night I used the Dove Sensitive Bar Soap and used my Clarisonic. After that, I used the Boscia Luminizing Black Mask that I ju
  7. Loging in for the first time in 6 years. And surprise, I'm still dealing with acne. But after reading my old posts I know I'm dealing with a very different type of acne than I did back in high school. Quick run down - My skin did look great for my senior prom. Now in the grand scheme of things, prom really wasn't that big of a deal and neither was that first date. I finished out my Actutane treatment and suffered from some pretty gnarly side effects that I won't ever willingly revisit. I continu
  8. I work night shift so I woke up about 3 pm today. I rolled out of bed and went to the bathroom and to my surprise, there were no new pimples on my face. Which is SO rare! The left side of my cheek, that was covered completely in acne for the last 3 weeks, has healed up so much. November 10th will be three full months that I've been on Spiro. I'm trying not to be too hopeful, because I'm afraid my skin is just calming down and going to freak out again in a week or so. But I cannot help how excite
  9. So here's my story. I'm 22 years old and have been battling acne for about 4 years now. I had perfect skin up until my junior year of high school. It was nothing serious, but enough for me to tell my mom I wanted to get on birth control to see if it would help clear it up. (That was honestly just an excuse to get on BC then because I was in my first serious relationship.) So my gyno prescribed me the pill (I can't remember the name) and within a month or two I was a nightmare! I was emotional 24
  10. Hey guys, long time no speak. I can't believe it's been nearly 6 months since I posted on here. So I want to get straight into it. Here's an updated skin routine then I'll go into some details, some things have changed some haven't.

  11. Hey Guys, Veteran member here. Ive been battling acne since I was a teen, cant remember how young now. I've had 2 courses of accutane and tried numerous topicals. Around 26-27 yrs of age, my acne became very mild and manageable. I've just had my first child, and my skin has steadily gone downhill since giving birth. I am 11 months post-partum and my skin looks the worst it ever has. Over the last 6 months i have tried proactiv, PC BHA 2%, PC BHA 4%, (no BP as this is too damaging to m
  12. So...I started breaking out again about a week and half ago, so approximately 6 weeks after finishing the course of antibiotics. Urgh! What gives? I had a small cluster of cystic-type acne on the left side of my chin (always the left side!) and one under my left nostril. The cluster is healing now (but still red and lumpy) and the one under my nose is smaller than it was, but still a visible lump. I am more than a little worried that another lump is forming in the cluster area. It is not to
  13. SOOOooo I mentioned last week that I wanted to try a primer/bb cream, yea? Yea, no... Bad idea. For only 2 days last week I tried the Smashbox primer light. It made my face dry as a dinosoar's ass. Needless to say, I live in the desert and it's over 100 degrees daily right now. PLUS the water in Vegas is super hard and terrible for dry, sensitive skin, like MINE OF COURSE LOLOLOL. So only 2 days of this stuff definitely made me break out. I went back to just my regimen and things are improv
  14. So, it's been about 2 years since I last blogged here. Unfortunately, I am back again! Earlier this year (January/February) I started breaking out again with cystic acne. I really don't know what caused it, but I had recently switched from eating Special K every morning to oatmeal - hoping that oatmeal would help keep me fuller as I was trying to lose some post-holiday weight gain. Anyway, I started getting about 2 per week over the course of about 4-5 weeks so I hauled myself into the doctor, k
  15. I've been a silent observer to this website for a very long time. So long in fact that I have already made the life-changing decision to begin an Isotretinoin treatment and am currently on my 47th day of treatment. Reading so many other blogs has inspired me to create my own, especially when I've experienced the difference it has made for me to read the commentary so many others have provided throughout their Iso journey. So even though they will probably never read this, thank you to all of the

    Ziana Gel

    My progress on Ziana Gel. Ive attached pictures to show how my skin looks after every week or so. I started Ziana December 1 2014, I experienced burning sensation sometimes due to using too much of the product. Not too much peeling, but I have oily skin. I didn't experience dryness, again due to oily skin..I believe. Ziana started working for me instantly. Reduced breakouts and helped breakouts heal faster, also helped dark spots shrink at a decent pace. Since using Ziana, I dont have t
  17. I don't know why I didn't start a blog sooner- probably because I was hopeful enough to think that my acne would have been cleared again by now! I had my first outbreak when I was 22. It started around my chin (a combination of closed comedones and cysts) and spread down to my cheeks and up to my jawline. Before then I'd always had perfect skin, if slightly on the dry side. I even remember once wishing that I could get zits because I watched the episode of My So Called Life where Angela Chas
  18. Hi guys and girls! I'm 28 and have been suffering with acne on and off for over 10 years. I've attached some pics of my current outbreak. I've pretty much been on every medication available except Roaccutane. The only medication i've used in the past which has completely cleared my skin long term is Dianette. However my doctor will not prescribe me this anymore as I occasionally have migranes with aura and apparently this heightens my chance of a stroke. VERY FRUSTRATING My curren

    Retin A Week 1/2

    So my acne started to come back, and after a failed antibiotics and over the counter cream (will review those soon) I ordered Retin A as ive heard quite a lot of good feedback about it. I think its actually discontinued (in London at least) so I ordered from an Ebay seller : http://www.ebay.ie/sch/popugai/m.html I've been using it for about 2 weeks now and so far all I'm experiencing is flakey/peely skin and more spots... I hear this is normal for the first few weeks so I am trying t
  20. I'm going to try to keep this short because when I read acne stories (or anything really!) I like when it gets straight to the nitty gritty. (but if you have any specific questions then feel free to ask) So, I've had acne since I was about 11/12. (I'm 20 now) so I basically haven't seen my skin clear for almost 10 years!! >.< Although, since around end of 2013/start of 2014, my skin had started to clear up. I think this was a result of drinking more water, cleansing efficiently/re
  21. This week is my lady week and along with it came one great big pimple on my left cheek. It hasn't really surfaced but it's red and it hurts.. Could also be because I was super tired on Saturday night and didn't properly wash my makeup off before bed (I used a wipey thingy though!). Other than that, I've been on the right path. You know, the one that EVENTUALLY leads to clear skin. Maybe I haven't been great at remembering to apply lip balm lately, because my lips have been so dry. Even drier
  22. Let's see I guess i'll start off by giving you a little idea of who I am. I'm a twenty something year old who works with dogs in sunny Southern California. I enjoy everything the outdoors has to offer. My favorite things to do are hiking, camping, backpacking, rock climbing, kayaking You name it! I've always struggled with hormonal acne, but not until a couple years ago I started breaking out with tiny little nodules under my skin, and soon they spread ALL over my cheeks, and chin. Thanks t
  23. PROGRESS Two weeks ago (Day 154) I reported that the left side of my face was very clear while the right side was still "catching up". I have not had any [major] pimples on the left side of my face since writing that. The right side of my face has since had a pretty ugly breakout 1-2 big-sized pimples that are still healing.. One of them is a real eye sore, right in the middle of my cheek. It's in the middle of drying out right now. For once though, I don't even care. It doesn't bother me. I ke
  24. Hello to anyone who is taking the time to read this... My name is Ali. I am a soon-to-be-21 year old psychology major, and I also study public health and nutrition. Woo! I love it !! I am also dealing with acne! Boo. My struggle with acne started when I was 18. From puberty until I turned 18, my skin was flawless. But then I suddenly began breaking out very rapidly and severly for no apparent reason. This was extremely traumatizing for me. I quickly began to hate myself. In no time, I wa

    Introduction

    The woman in my mid 30s who had always had very good skin until about 30. I have tried everything it started with Clinique and proactive and Dermalogica then Bocia, Avene, la Roche, dove, simple, spectro, Aleppo soap and on and on and on. I've discovered the awful truth about moisturizer. And that is, once you start using it it changes the way that your skin produces see them forever. A Swedish scientist recently discovered that using moisturizer actually makes your skin worse: http://www.
