  1. Hello Everyone! If anyone has been reading my blog thus far, you will know I have been on the regime (drugstore version) for about a month. I can honestly say that benzoyl peroxide is a very effective acne/blemish treatment - at a cost. The dryness, roughness and overall uneven skin texture is a trade off for fewer pimples and potentially clear skin. I found that my skin was so rough and uneven that it just didn't look great, even though I had fewer pimples and blemishes. Doing some research
  2. I just wanted to write a brief history of my experience with acne before going into writing accutane blogs. I have had acne since I was nine years old. When I was younger it was only a few pimples but it got worse throughout middle school. It seemed to calm down in high school and college but I still never had clear skin. Now after graduating college it has all flared up again. When I was in middle school I used Retin-A and differin topical creams that were prescribed to me by my primary c
  3. Hello there! I promised myself that I'd write a blog post whenever I found something that 'worked' for me and gave me clear skin. Reading blogs on Acne.org really helped me find the products that worked best with my skin, so I wanted to tell my story in case it can help anyone else struggling with acne/breakouts. It took a lot (like, a LOT) of trial and error to get where I am now - so above all the one thing to take away from this blog post is don't give up. Ever! I know how crappy it feel
  4. Hello! I've been on my natural skin care mission for about 4 days now, so I thought I'd share some of my impressions on how it's going so far! I suppose I can't review the vitamins so much right now as I think they take some time to get working in your system, but I have also begun taking Vitamin D3 which after looking online seemed to be another effective acne solution. So as it stands I'm taking the recommended dosage for Vitamin A, E & D3 - though I can't speak for effectiveness
  5. Hey Everyone, I decided - after a few failed attempts with other methods - to start the regime. I will be using drugstore products that I will list below. I'm starting this blog so that anyone reading can share their experience with the regime or good drugstore products I might not have listed. I'd also love to hear any tips and tricks you might have in approaching treatment. About 3 years ago I ordered Dan's products, which are awesome. Great price, large quantities, and for the most
  6. Fuller's Earth, also known as Multani Mitti in Hindi, is a clay or soil substance which is popular and well utilised in parts of South Asia due to its powerful healing properties against acne and blemishes. Fuller's Earth contains magnesium chloride which helps reduce acne by cleansing the pores of any dirt 'debris' and bacteria. Multani Mitti is a less common source of cleaning the face of impurities. This is due to the geographical location which it is found at - Pakistan. The most of amaz

    Epiduo Week 1

    I just went to a new derm a week ago and she prescribed me Epiduo. Everyday I wash with Loreal sensitive skin, non-medicated wash and at night I apply a pea sized amount of Epiduo. I have Ulcerative Colitis so unfortunately I am unable to take any oral meds because of the condition of my UC. Before I started Epiduo my entire face was broken out. There was not a even a spot on my face that was clear. I didn't have but like 2 or three cystic pimples. The rest were clogged pores, like little ti
  8. Hey Everyone! I know it's only been one day since starting Dan's regime with drugstore products, but I wanted to give some of my 'first impressions' and let you know how it's going so far - in case anyone is looking to start it! Also looking for a good non-greasy moisturizer suggestion so please feel free to share any you have found in the comments! Here is my routine so far: NIGHT: I wash my face gently with Cetaphil, pat dry with towel, then let my skin dry (5 min). I next put on th
  9. Hey Everyone, I wanted to do another update, as I've been doing this regime for four days now. I can tell that my skin is getting a bit dry, but not in a flakey way - more in an itchy way, with lots of very, very, tiny bumps. It's kind of like getting to be the texture of sandpaper, which is generally how my skin reacts to being dried out. I think this is a result of the BP treatment as I knew I was going to experience some drying so I guess I'll have to see if my skin gets used to it! On t
  10. I did terribly posting regularly on here after all, but I do want to make an update on my status. I finished my treatment at the end of July. I was prescribed accutane by my dermatologist and I was to be on it for 4 months. Boy was I ever glad to finish taking those pills. I had to put up with a lot of dry, peeling skin. Especially around my lips. But making sure to moisturize constantly really did help me from looking too bad. The one thing I did enjoy was my hair not getting greasy at all.
  11. I am kind of bummed because I am on spring break from college right now. I am hiding in my apartment because of how bad my skin looks. I am too embarrased for my friends to see how bad my skin looks without makeup....so no pool time or beach time for me this spring break. So I finally decided to go to a new dermatologist last Thursday. My last one kept prescribing me stuff that either dried my skin out too much, burned it or gave me a allergic reaction. I went through loads of prescription
