    Week 3 With Dan The Man

    Hey kids. So I just finished week 3/started week 4. And I'm still pretty pleased w the results of the regimen! As a reminder I'm using 1/3 fingers length of bp twice a day, with dans cleanser and Cerave moisturizer twice a day too. I also just started my 3rd month of the bc pill Trinessa... I try and wear as little makeup as possible. Some Clinique concealer under the eyes and on any zits usually makes me half presentable for a day at work. But I'd like to start trying maybe adding a primer

    One Month

    FEAR ME! Yes! I quit benzoyl peroxide cold turkey.. One day I just .. STOPPED. OK. Well, I am at 1 month. I thought my acne was bad while on the REGIMEN. HOLY COW. This last month has been awful. I've broke out on my forehead and on my chin; places I've NEVER EVER got acne before. Not on my nose, however...strange. Not to exclude my cheeks and the sides of my face. During this last month I've had to prepare myself for college which means being out in public and showing them my ugly mu

    One Week

    It has been one week since i started taking the 10 mg pills twice a day, so 20 mg. There hasnt been many changes yet, but i have had stomach pains twice, but I took paracetomol and they went away. The ores around my nose have become very visible and large, and Ive been getting tiny little bumps around my chin and forehead where i dont usually get them. Havent experienced any dryness in the lips and skin, although I feel more thirsty. I hope my skin will start to clear up soon.

    My First Blog Entry

    Hello fellow Acne sufferers, this is my first blog on this site. I joined because honestly acne has become a huge stress in my life and I think blogging would help. To those who decide to read this I will introduce myself. My name is sk8(not posting real name) lol. I am a 17 year old male, yes that may sound weird but even teenage boys can talk about their problems. I am a sponsored skateboarder so that is the influence behind my name. I am still in high school, a junior to be exact. I make dece

  7. Here ya go! Now back to True Detective...
  8. Hello, lovely people of this website!My name is Marissa and I'm 17. I just made this account today. I thought it would be hella cool to start a blog so I can keep track of my progress (or lack thereof), spread information/be a reference for people new to Accutane, and hopefully make some friends on here. So here I am. Nice to meet you.Some background:So I actually started Accutane last month (4/27/18) - I'm on my 25th day today (5/21/18). I've never had great skin, but around age 15-16 it starte

    Mid Week 3-Ish

    Its finals week- so I wanted to go ahead and post about what is going on this week a little earlier than at the end of the 3rd week mark... back- clearing (almost completely clear besides red marks and slowly fading bumps that you can't really see, but that I can feel on my back) face- cysts are clearing, SLOWLY. So slowly. The bp is helping (still only spot treating), but I'm still getting other bumps on my face (not as bad as the cysts), so it is still not 100% clear at all. Have been
  10. [side note- I'm new to this place so bear with me and forgive my mistakes, not even sure if I'm making a post properly hahaha..] A little history about my experience with acne- I'm 23 and never had issues with acne throughout middle or high school. I started getting my issues more in my 'young-adult' years, it went from mild acne to painful cystic acne. Compared to many others my acne is/was quite mild but I couldn't seem to be clear.. ever! So I've tried everything under the sun (just

    2 Months Into Dans Regimen! Whoop!

    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?!?

My hyperpgimentation is still there and I am patiently waiting for them to fade. Theres not really much else to update. Keep reading!!!

    End Of Week 6

    Hello All, So I mentioned before that I was going to see my Derm this week to see where I was with my treatment etc. looks like my body is taking accutane very well, as my side effects are not as severe as what most people go through. 1. My initial breakout was a couple of big cysts, only lasting for just less than two weeks. Apparently some people can suffer from IB for a month. However, she did say that this can be curbed with antibiotics and it's rare that it should last that long -

    1 month on spiro

    So I can officially say that it has been a whole month of taking spironolactone. I've decided to keep my dose to 50 mg as I have noticed major improvements on my face - starting with forehead which was filled with cystic acne just over a month ago and now I have none. I still have a small number of breakouts on my cheeks and a couple on my jaw but it is not as worse as how it was before I started taking spiro. I am however left with a lot of scars and pigmentation which I know can be sorted out

    My Accutane Diary

    Hi, I'm 20 years old, dealing with mild to moderate acne for about 7 years now. Tried many topical and antibiotics, birth control pill is the only one to make a difference but it comes with too many side effects for me so finally got put onto Accutane. Started last week on 20mg a day. I will be on 20mg for 2 weeks after which I will go up to 40mg until my next appointment with the dermatology nurse on the 1st June. Week one - I've been ill and so I don't know if some of the changes I've be
  16. Update: It has been 26 days since I started Retin-A, and I am sorry I am late to the party. I have been on Accutane before and my dermatologist has advised I move onto Retin-A to maintain my skin. My thoughts so far on Retin-A have been positive. I definitely did get the initial breakout but it went away pretty quickly and my face is a lot more calmer. I am applying it every night on top of my moisturizer and I think that helps with the flakes and dryness. Initially, I did get flakes bu

    Week 4 Optimus Prime-R...

    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

    Prologue

    My battle with acne started when I was about 13. It was terribly inconvenient, as that was about the time I started actually caring about my appearance.. but anyway. My entire face broke out. Literally, the whole thing except my eyes and lips. It was terrible. What was even worse was the fact that I didn't know any better and decided to slather on a layer of drugstore makeup to cover it. *cringe* The only thing I really used for it was pHisoderm face wash. I was unaware of the amount of prod

    Week 13 - Month 3

    So week 13, it's gone quick. Ill be finish in 2 months according to derm! Positive experience all round. Symptons havent been as extreme as i anticipated. Dry lips and a dry inner nose is the only issues for me. Dry inner nose is sore and constant vaseline poking up my nose! Seems to have calmed down though Lips are fairly constant. But my skin in flawless except from odd spots i mean 1 or 2. Still have lots of scars but no bumpy oily spotty skin. Skin isn't dry. Just not exactly oily. I

    Day 7 on Spiro 25mg

    So I'm on Day 7 now and I feel worse than I did yesterday. I woke up with new cysts popping up all alongside by lower jaw and under my chin and forehead. It's absolutely horrible, I don't even want to look in the mirror anymore. I'm also currently in the middle of my exams for university so I think I might be breaking out due to stress as well. I've also been using Epiduo on active acne in the evening to get them to shrink down and all but not much of a difference because when one goes another c

    So here I am I cant believe im 78 days into Accutane. I still feel the same and I still have those stupid red marks and I wish theyd go away but the derm told me it'll talke 6-12 months. My skin was clear since my last blog update until yesterday I got 3 small pimples. No biggie theyre getting smaller already and they're pretty small. I still use the same moisturizer (Earth Science Spf 15+ almond-aloe moisturizer) and I swithced my eye cream (not that it effects my acne I just think its good

    14th week on Yasmin

    This week I started my 4th pack of Yasmin and it's the first time that it didn't broke me out at all (not complaining about the one teeny tiny spot I got) like it used to do while starting a new pack. My face hasn't been pimple-free since ages. Yasmin has work wonders for me so far. My periods are the most regular they have ever been. It hasn't done a lot to prevent my excessive hair growth, but the doc told me that I'll probably see difference after a couple more months of using the pill.
  24. I'm embarking on a skin care challenge with Carley's Clear and Smooth Products and will be updating on my blog along the way. I blog about skin care products and cosmetics for individuals with very sensitive, acne-prone skin. For anyone who's interested, the post is here: http://www.lipstickjezebel.blogspot.com/2013/04/carleys-clear-and-smooth-skin-challenge.html I hope you'll join me along the way! =)
  25. Today is day one for me with taking Amnesteem and I am pretty nervous because of all of the stories I have heard mainly about how it will get way worse before it gets better. I have struggled with acne for so long and I have tried everything under the sun and over the counter etc. with no positive results. I am wanting to start a blog on here to so I can keep up with my progress throughout the medication but I can't figure out how to start the blog on here. Can anyone help me?
