  1. 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

    Day 17

    40mg 2x day I should write down what happens, for myself and for anyone who might experience similar side effects/results. I'm turning 30 this month, going to be hard not to drink more than I should. My doctor and pharmacist said it was fine to have a few drinks from time to time. I've drank twice already on accutane- had half a bottle of wine, and another time had 2 drinks. Days 1-3- lips stated to get dry, nothing big. Days 4-10- lips got supe dry, and nose and skin. I had to upgra
  3. Roaccutane journal 10mg /day I am 24, female, and have been struggling with chin/jawline acne. This is a week by week journal of my skin while on 10mg/day roaccutane. I am currently 3 months in and will update as I progress. Week 1 (ending 9/6/18): Slight lip dryness (dry from winter anyway-not sure if this is a side effect) No new breakouts Still lots of existing congestion under skin around chin area (large cystic as well as little bumps) Wee
  4. My face is calmer this week, still getting new spots. I am hoping my face will start to clear and heal soon. Ignore the red eyes, my hay fever was particularly bad this week. (yay!)
  5. These are photos from days 10 & 11, unfortunately the next entry will be at the end of week two as I forgot to take photos on the other days. My face is calming down. Still have spots popping up but they go down quicker and are less angry the next day. I may start doing a weekly photo of my face instead of a daily. Bottom photos are day 10, top are day 11.
  6. The first week of this routine is over, not a lot of difference, face seems calmer in the mornings and looks better when I put make up on. Day 6 is the bottom photos and day 7 is top photos.

    Day 5

    Day 5 - Sunday 4th February Took 2 x 20mg pills after brunch. Skin has some dry patches on it, not sure if that is the accutane or its the spot cream that I have applied. Spot on side of my nose squeezed again this morning, few other little sore bumps around my chin and lower cheeks, but nothing major, will have to see if they turn into their usual big and sore selves. Feeling crappy still today but thinking I have a throat infection or tonsillitis, my mum read somewhere that accutane lowe

    Accutane At 37

    Hi! I am a 37 years old and just started taking accutane (actually the generic Myorisan) 7 days ago. I'm pretty nervous, but am hoping this works! Here's a little of my "skin history." I've never had SEVERE acne, but I have had persistent moderate acne for my entire adult life. During jr high and high school I definitely had pimples, but nothing more or less than what other kids had. I didn't LOVE my skin, but I didn't hate it, either. About my mid-twenties I started to get more and more brea
  9. I have started using Acanya in the mornings and Ziana at night. The Acanya tingles a bit after drying. Makes the skin a bit dry. Be careful not to put on too much, I use a very small amount, less than pea size. I add moisturizer about 20 to 30 mins after applying the Acanya. I now can wear my skin comfortably without makeup. Its not perfect but it looks smoother since using Acanya and it looks very healthy. No new breakouts in the last week.
  10. 4 Basic causes of Acne (and some types of Rosacea) - make sure your dermatologist tests you to verify which type you have. The treatment for each type is completely different. Correct diagnosis of the cause is important to clear the skin condition. Demodex skin mites are the most under-diagnosed cause of acne for people of all ages. Some more enlightened dermatologists will test for the mites. Many old school dermatologists were taught in school, that the mites were harmless. As such man

  12. Okay I’m 22 years old and have had persistent cheek acne for 3 years... I’m allergic to accutane so that is not an option. I’ve gotten laser treatments as well. Please help! Also how long did it take for people to notice change when they changed their diets?
  13. I have had acne now, on and off, for 10 years. When its on its been fairly severe, when its off I still have acne mildly. I have always understood my genes were to blame as both my parents had some acne when they were young and my older sister had some. The difference was I still have my acne, and my sister knows full well her acne is down to triggers such as alcohol etc... Hers is not as severe as mine and clears up quickly when she has a detox and relaxes. Mine doesnt. I have thought this is
  14. 23, Female Acne type: larger red pimples along jawline and cheeks. At least one new breakout a day. Also have blackheads on nose and milia (maybe just deep white heads) on my chin and cheeks and in between my eyebrows. Medications: birth control. And I take a vitamin A supplement every night I started getting acne when I was in grade school and I’ve and it ever since. I used Proactive in jr high and then quit it and started using over the counter products for about 3-4 years. I went to

  16. Im 14 nearly 15 and I've had acne and oily skin since I was 10 (i know I was young), but suddenly my oily skin has gone and in my t-zone it's normal and the rest of my skin is dry. Does this mean that my acne is going? As it has dulled down a bit lately. I just thought that I'm too young for my acne to go already, even though I wish it would.
  17. I'm 25, Male, My acne was totally gone for few months, I didn't even care that much about it while I had it before. Until suddenly (like 3-4 days ago) I started to fall in love with a girl I'm seeing regularly somewhere, I took an appointment to go there again in a week and boom, It started with 1, and now it's like 7-8 of the white ones (small white ones on chin and a red one between eyebrows!)... possibly more until my appointment so I'm gonna have to cancel it. I'm not sad or depres
  18. I've had cystic acne since I was about 12. I'm 21 now and I rarely break out in cyst. Just one or two a month or so. I mainly just have to deal with redness or dark marks that they leave. I recently stopped using over the counter acne washes and using only the cetaphil antibacterial bar. My skin has cleared almost entirely of these little colorless bumps I had and excess oil (no more shiny face) I even stopped wearing foundation, just powder and cover up to diminish the look of redness/scars. Th
  19. Hello I've not had acne for over 10 years, barely even a hormonal spot and now after coming off the pill in April I've broke out badly. Lots and lots of little skin coloured bumps on my cheeks and pimples! I've tried numerous creams/washes and very reluctant to go back on the pill again. Not been to see a doctor yet however it's starting to really get me down. When I got spots in my teens they never looked like this so really unsure what to do. Any advice? xx
  20. Hello everyone! I haven't posted here in a long time, I always feared this day would come where I would have to come back because of the dreaded acne. Some of you might remember me, some of you may not. Here is my issue, I have been using a specific brand of Spiro 100 mg for over two years now. I was using the Walgreens manufacture amneal. I chose to switch pharmacies, because Walgreens is terrible. That's a story for another time. Once my Spiro was being filled with target, I starte
  21. I used this initially for my heart (it helps with palpitations etc) and noticed how much dryer my face became. It was so dry i could actually moisturize with emu oil which i did not mind at all. It took 1-2 weeks to kick in, taking 1 gram in 600ml of water every morning, from a bpa free cup. I did not change my diet, but i did also drink more water (because i was drinking this in the first hour of being awake) I stopped taking Alcar recently due to bad time management and have noticed how oily m
  22. im 27 year old girl and my acne is mild to moderate at times - hormonal i think, but I am really tired of having bad skin at my age. My dermatologist has given me a prescription for very low dose of Roaccutane (10mg) to take but i am really reluctant to do this after lots of research , since there seem to be so many side effects some apparently which can stay with you forever. in any case my acne is thankfully not as bad as a lot of people's but it does really get me down at my age to always ha
  23. I keep getting these red spots on my cheeks under my nose and on my chin. I am 23 years old and I have never had any skin problems before. I went to my family doctor and she recommended going to a dermatologist and he told me it was a former of adult rosecea and gave me a gel to put on it. The gel only made it about 10 times worse and the only thing I that has worked to clear it up are steroid pills and I obviously cannot take them for too long or forever so I am trying everything I can to find
  24. I have been a long time acne sufferer and have done a ridiculous amount of research and self tests to see what might permanently cure my acne. You could call it a Borderline obsession when it comes to looking for ways to cure my acne. Anyways, Largely I feel like a proper diet and a healthy ratio of omega fatty acids are what it largely takes to maintain mostly good skin. You may or may not be aware of Leo from clear skin coach but that was the first step I took to permanently healthy skin.
  25. Hi all, My name is Danielle and I'm 25 years old. I never had problem skin until i turned 22 years old and my body started to change. Im not really sue what the cause of it was, maybe stress, maybe just changes but it sucked. My acne was big cystic pimples that would last for a really long time. They were only on my cheeks and nothing i did would make them go away. I would look at myself in the mirror and just cry because i felt like there was no way of curing this. I went to doctor after do
