  1. My doctor put me on birth control (ortho-tricyclen) after my first period in middle school. Fast forward - clear skin for almost my entire life until I turn 19 and decide I don't need to be on synthetic hormones. Three months later, cystic acne all over my cheeks, jawline, and neck. Sound familiar? Straight away I go to the derm. Get put back on ortho-tri. I stayed on the ortho tri only to experience mediocre results, then moved onto yaz for three months which caused a literal facial explosion
  2. Hello hello, It has been well over a month since my last post. I think as the tablets become a daily routine and as your skin starts to clear up, you just seem to forget how big of a deal it was when starting on them and therefore forget to update! So lets just recap... Month 1 I was on 20mg a day - had a horrendous breakout (worst I've very had in my life) Month 2 I was upped to 30mg a day - Breakout continued and was not seeing much improvement. I was almost givi
  3. I can not believe how fast two weeks have gone. Wow. I am still breaking out which is mainly my jawline and neck which is my usual problem place. My back pain, well more of an ache, was annoying yesterday so I am seeing my doctor this afternoon. I only took 20mg today as I didn't want to not take one but thought I would take the lesser dose until I have spoke to the doc. From what I read 20mg is still an effective dose, it's just not as effective on the remission side of things. I will upd

    Update

    Hey everyone! So I've been on retin a and clindamycin for about ten days now and I'm starting to get that ever so dreaded initial breakout the breakout is consisting of a very itchy patchy area of tiny pimples. Not any big ones so that's good I guess? I hope this goes away soon ugh! Oh side note , yesterday I started oral antibiotics for a "girl" infection if you know what I mean... Lol so I'll be on that medication for about three days and I'm kinda hoping it helps my acne too ..
  5. Hello All! I just wanted to document when I really feel like my initial breakout is taking its toll. Last Tuesday I got one rather bothersome spot. It went away quickly, but now several others have popped up over the past week. I woke up today with new spots (cheek, chin) and have officially decided this is my initial breakout unfortunately. ARGHHH. Bright side: nothing cystic! Just inflamed white heads that won't budge unless I pop them. And they pop rather violently, lol, pretty graphic bu
  6. On an up side though, I have planned to book a dermatology appointment on Saturday 25th February. It is Harley Street Dermatology Clinic. Super Super excited to see a professional for the first time. I got really upset and phoned home last night which was a mistake. My mum is really annoying. She just buts in with stupid medical shit. She doesn't actually know what she is talking about because she has never suffered from bad acne. But anyway, mum and my sister decide to belittle my emotions and
  7. Hi. This is horrible. I got 5 new white pimples on each cheek.. I'm at the end of the WEEK 4.. It's not normal.. I also got 4 redness spots on the nose today and I absolutly don't know why. I've a simple diet with few meat and no milk (including no butter, no cream, no cheese..etc) Please if you experienced the same thing, tell it to me! I don't want to break out again I also need to buy a new regimen kit, (It Takes 3 weeks to deliver) but i'm hesitating because of this breakout.. Hel
  8. I'm busy at school that's why I decided to make my reports one a week (or twice maybe) instead of daily reports! So, It's bad on my chin. 5 new white guests. They were not invited to the party ;( I put BP at 12 AM today and 2 poped themselves. About redness: The area where I put the BP is visible but not red as a very irritated zone. (even it's a little bit "tanned") About Dryness: It's very dry after using the Cleanser but not during the day or th night (except this night) I decided to i
  9. Hi, I'm having mixed feeling about the ginko biloba supplement. I felt like it helped me the first couple days and suddenly I get multiple cysts. Has anyone tried this with a similar or different experience? Thanks
  10. I'm just really bummed... My face is purging right now on my right cheek--upper, middle, and lower, chin, and starting to purge on my left cheek. I have 2 actives--one on my lower chin and one on my upper chin (inflamed red bump). The lower chin one looks like it'll come to a head tomorrow and purge/go away. I have a bunch of red marks on the right side of my face and a couple on the left. Looks like the left cheek will purge soon too... :/ Any encouragement/ similar experiences would
  11. Hey everyone! So quite a bit has happened over the past few days. THE AWFUL MISTAKE OF USING SALICYLIC ACID WITH BENZOYL PEROXIDE: A few days ago I made the horrible mistake of using Salicylic Acid toner while using my regimen that contains Benzoyl Peroxide. BAD idea. BAD, BAD, BAD idea. Even though I applied it to 2 zits on my chin using a Q-Tip, it literally burnt out my skin to the point where it felt like someone had numbed my chin! It was AWFUL! I was really worried (as I should h
  12. It's now day 4 of taking the treatment. I have noticed some new pimples, but nothing super drastic. They typically pop on their own after I wash my face. I'm trying to wear the least amount of makeup as possible, drinking LOTS of water, and moisturizing regularly. My lips haven't gotten dry yet, but I apply Blistex often in order to delay it as much as possible. It was quite windy today, so skin feels slightly sensitive. My doctor recommended sugar-free gum to help with a dry mouth, bad breath,

    Week 6.1

    This week was better actually, by no means clear but better. And as I said in my last post it seems to be almost gone and then another breakout. It seems endless. I just washed my face and it always looks worse after I shower or wash it. So I'm down about that. It normally looks less irritated in the morning. Still continuing the process there are a lot of ups and downs to this product but whatever

    Week 2.8

    I've been using Bianca for 2.8 weeks. I should have started this blog earlier but better late than never. So starting from the beginning I used the regimen it worked for a few months and then my acne returned. So I panicked and went to my derm. She prescribed me Biacna gel topical treatment ( 1.2 % clindamycin phosphate and 0.025% tretinoin ) I have not yet experienced and bad side effects like irritation and slight dryness in the first week or so of use. At around 1 week and a few days or so
  15. I'm having a break out. I have around nine whiteheads on my chin that seem to have appeared overnight, and they're sore and red Only three of them are medium/large though. And I have some still forming under my skin. I'm thinking this is a hormonal breakout caused by the pill because I haven't broken out like this in months, I haven't changed anything else, and I have a whitehead on my jawline, which I hardly ever get. I'm going to be putting photos up so I can track my progress. Break
  16. So, I've been using Topical Isotretinoin (Isotrex gel 0,05%) and Benzoyl Peroxide 10% (Benzoilat 10 Emulgel) Things ARE NOT better. I'm still worse than before the use of isotrex (I have been using benzoyl peroxide since 1 year ago, so it was isotrex that gave me this breakout) SO I HAVE NOT IMPROVEMENT. (I remember you that I use isotrex in the night and benzolait in the morning) Should I still wait?? I will book a visit to my doctor as near as I can. However, I'm also thinking to change d
  17. So next day, and my skin is definitely having a breakout, just lots of white heads forming. Super frustrating as I have some events coming up over the next few weeks which I would have loved being clear (not including the damn PIH which doesn't fade even slightly on my skin) for. Still let's soldier on and try and stay positive! After all, it's future me that I'm looking out for here... Hopefully this is the last breakout and Differin (and my persistence) works some kind of magic out. Al
  18. From the album: Accutane Journey Results

    This and the other two pictures are from the end of 2nd-during 3rd month of my Accutane treatment. As you can see, my skin was terrible. I had cysts all around my jawline and some on my cheeks, several whiteheads, scabs, everything basically. I didn't like going out at all and sometimes I didn't want to go to school. It was really really bad physically and psychologically. My face would hurt whenever I smiled or ate, and I was extremely self conscious about myself. What hurt the most was the

    From the album: Annoying Breakouts

    I can't believe how bad my skin has gotten! This is extremely embarrassing for me especially around my friends who all have near flawless skin. I always get terrible acne around my mouth and everyone notices!

    Day 24

    So I've decided to start a blog about my journey on accutane. This is my first entry and it's already day 24. I am currently taking 10 mg, but I hope to be given a higher dose at my next dermatologist appointment. Before accutane my skin wasn't horrible but I definitely did have acne, and it is a HUGE blow to my confidence. I literally hide out in my house and refuse to go anywhere or do anything. I have damaged a lot of relationships with friends and family because I am so self conscious when i
  22. Hi, I just wanted to ease my mind regarding the effects of stopping birth control pills especially on the skin which is usually acne breakouts. I have been on Alesse 28 for 4 months only. I am just wondering if anyone who took pills for a few months still got bad acne breakouts? I’m quitting BC pills this week but I’m also scared about its side effects. Please help me. Thanks : (
  23. Hey all, Been an acne sufferer for over 15 years (about to turn 30). Been on every perscription, accutane 3 times, and have been taking .05% retina nightly for the past several years with the acne.org bp every morning. Recently been getting more nodular acne and the current probiotic I took for 1.5 months wasnt doing anything (it was 10 bil units, 2 strands, and i overlooked the refridge statement so they could have been dead for all I knew). Decided to give Doxycyclin another try. 2 w
  24. i dont know if i can do this anymore, I'm so sick of my acne. never had any breakouts throughout my high school years until april 2018, my cheeks started breaking out horribly. ive literally tried everything under the sun but nothing has worked and now my acne is getting worse. the post inflammatory erythema are so bad, they make my skin look like i have active pimples. ive cried several times because my acne, and i pray almost everyday for me to have clear skin again. and oh boy oh boy, i
  25. Hi! I was just recently prescribed Accutane and I am about to start my first course of 60/mg day tomorrow. I have been using the regimen EVERY SINGLE DAY (BP followed by AHA+ mixed w/ moisturizer) for about 2 years now, and I'm terrified of what is going to happen to my face if I stop cold turkey. I was thinking of gradually decreasing the amount of BP I use from two pumps down to one until I feel the Accutane is making my skin too dry to use any more. My face has always been extremely oily and
