  1. Skin Condition Skin redness seems to be minimal like it usually is Lots of acne marks still on my cheeks, no more whiteheads two small red pimples emereged on my upper lip. Nooo. No whiteheads on my chin Just like yesterday my skin was quite dry and flakey. Dryness around my pimples Not as dry around my eyes as yesterday (improvement!) Not as dry around my mouth, But this is still the dryest area of my face my forehead look
  2. I haven't been able to write for a while as I was on vacation. I bumped my dosage up to 30 mg for the second month, so I have been on that for about 20 days now. I will be seeing my dermatologist next week and I want to go up to 60 mg a day, which would be about my max, and would mean I could finish my cumulative dose by October. I know that low dosing provides less symptoms, but I do NOT want to be on this stuff for a whole year. We want to get pregnant next year, so... There has
  3. Hey! My dark spots are beginning to fade. They are still very noticeable, but I do see the improvement. I have two new pimples on my right cheek. A couple that are beginning to go away on my forehead and no active ones on my left cheek. I still have the same side effects, in addition to some new ones. My face and lips are still dry and my scalp is still itchy and flakey (although I got Selsun blue for flakey scalp, so hopefully that helps.) One of my new side effects is that I have a
  4. Whenever I apply Cerave + 4-5 drops of jojoba oil after bp, the bp immediately clumps up, turns white, and is just super hard to rub all over my skin. Whenever I mix in AHA+ with the Cerave and jojoba oil, however, this doesn't happen and everything goes on smoothly. Does anybody have any advice to stop clumping and/or an explanation of why AHA+ doesn't cause clumping?
  5. Hey guys, I've been doing the regimen for almost 7 weeks now, using store-bought products, and it has helped me a lot, but I still do get bumps every now and then and I still have a lot of clogged pores and whiteheads, so I think I should make the switch to Dan's BP, which I already use for my body acne. I originally used a CVS brand 2.5% BP + moisturizer, but I just don't think it's as effective, and it's way too expensive to use in the long run. I just don't know which moisturizer to use
  6. Hey everyone!!I've had moderate acne for the past 4 years and after endless medications and prescriptions I have built up the courage to go on Accutane! I've read so so many threads and logs and so many people have had great results! For the past 3 months this summer my acne took a turn for the worst after I got bronchitis and had to take a lot of medication (i thought antibiotics would help me??). Anyway, I've been even more depressed than usual and I barely leave the house so I don't pigment m
  7. Hello, I was wondering if it's okay to replace Dan's cleanser with Cetaphil's and Dan's moisturizer with Cerave's but still using Dan's treatment simultaneously? Please reply, help's appreciated!
  8. Hey guys, I've been on this site for a while now and am finally deciding to share my journey in hopes of getting 100% clear. Quick background, I'm a 24 year old female who has suffered from acne since puberty. It started as whiteheads and progressed to cystic acne as I became older. I used to have it all over my face, chest, and upper back but after getting on birth control at 17 I've had soft clear skin on my chest and back. Currently, I have a lot of hyperpigmentation and acne on my cheek
  9. Hello Everybody, I've been reading things on acne.org for a while but I'm just now really trying the regimen. After I wash my face with Cerave foaming wash at night my skin is so dry that its painful to put the bp on. Has anyone had success putting moisturizer on first? If so, how long did you wait for it to absorb before applying the bp? I've been using the acne.org moisturizer but want to go back to the Cerave SA lotion because the acne.org moisturizer doesn't seem to be keepi
  10. Hi Guys its been a while since i posted. As you can see in my previous posts i tried the caveman regimen and it did not work for me at all. my cistic acne on the right side of my face got worse. So i decided to visit the dematologist again. When she saw me she got so mad she basically started screaming at me asking me why didnt i follow the regimen she suggested. This happened the first week of December 2014. She decided to start me on a completly new regmen. First, That torture Facial I real
  11. Hey guys, The winter made my skin hella dry - so dry that it began to crack and peel. I recently switched from Purpose cleanser to Cerave Hydrating Facial Wash and it seems to helping a little with the peeling but I still get very oily. Given, it's only been two days I've been on this but I was wondering if anyone else had an adjustment period and saw progress eventually? My current regimen for morning and night is: wash - Cerave Hydrating Facial Wash, tone with a quick pat down of 50/50 apple
  12. Hello fellow acne sufferers, I have been on Duac(benzoyl peroxide + clindamycin) and retin a micro .04 % now for over a year, and my skin is so oily, yet so flaky. I am trying to cure my flakiness. I am currently using cetaphil moisturizer, but it is not doing enough. Here are my options: -jojoba oil -Cetaphil moisturizing cream -aquaphor -cerave pm moisturizer what are your thoughts?
  13. I need some help. So I had been clear for a long time(over a year) on the following regimen: Am: cetaphil normal-oily skin cleanser Duac Cetaphil moisturizer Oracea Pm: cetaphil cleanser again Retin a micro .04 Cetaphil moisturizer Ortho tri cyclen Then, I started getting occasional cysts on my chin, so I went to ortho cyclen. This cleared me up completely for two months. I stopped taking oracea, and my skin went downhill quickly. I started getting lots of little pimples al
  14. Last month, as of August 13th, I posted a topic about my horrible breakout I had from using bad acne products. On that day I immediately stopped taking the acne medications (Sulfamethoxazole/Tmp DS Tablet 2 times daily). And stopped cleaning my face with Tea Tree Facial Wash. I started, on August 19th, use CeraVe Foaming Facial Cleanser along with Thayer's Cucumber witch hazel & CeraVe Moisturizing Lotion. I still use my Clarisonic daily at nightime. I bumped up on Spring Valley's Hair, Skin
  15. I just ordered Dan's BP a few days ago as I plan on using Cetaphil and CeraVe (and sublock in the AM) in place of his cleanser and moisturizer. After seeing some people's issues with their faces turning darker, now I'm really worried! I always thought BP was originally marketed many years ago as a bleaching agent (I mean it definitely does a good job at bleaching my hair line!) before the discovery of its uses for treating acne, so I'm curious as to why this is happening to some of you guys. I a
  16. So it's been maybe a little less than a month since I completely stopped using my Clarisonic because I'm pretty sure it was doing more harm than good other keeping my skin smooth in the places where is wasn't breaking out. Soon after that, I stopped using acne medicated products altogether (currently using Cetaphil cleanser and witch hazel morning & night, Neutrogena Oil Free SPF 15 Moisturizer in the morning & CeraVe lotion at night). My breakouts have significantly reduced, b
  17. Hi guys i started on the regimen like two momths ago and i was still flaking i was using all of dans products moisturizer would always leave a yellow tint on my face i really didnt like it.. A few weeks ago i switched up things and sfarted to just use cerave hydrating cleanser and there moisturizer because the flakes were so bad... But now im braking out like crazy.. I want to get back on dans regimen but use an alternative moisturizer like neutrogena.. Should i restart the regimen.. And continu
  18. Let me first tell you that I know next to nothing about products and this is my opinion. For most men like myself, we are not used to putting things on our face or skin. It feels weird and it's sticky all day long. I hate putting products on my skin. I would rather have dry skin. Not only that, even when I do manage to ignore the feeling of lotion on my face, I have to wash my hands because my palms were just too sticky. Well I have been on Accutane for 3 weeks now and it is just beyond what
  19. Hi guys I'm new to this forum, and hopefully you guys have a lot of experience and can enlighten me with the proper way to apply my acne regimen. Background In highschool I had very bad acne I went from medicine to medicine, but nothing would work. The dermatologist finally took me off and made me get on acutane. I was on actuane for 6 months and I was acne free. It left a lot of scars unfortunately, but that didn't bother me that much. Skip forward 2 years later Present Acne wasn't a pr
  20. 12 Week update: A couple of weeks ago I started using Cerave moisturizing cream (the one in the big tub). My skin was so dry I was putting on two thick layers before going to bed at night and one more in the morning. I stopped using aloe and any of the oils because honestly I just felt like they were making my breakouts worse. In terms of dryness and peeling the Cerave cream saved my face. It moisturized in a way nothing else I have tried has, better than coconut oil, aveeno, or the regular Cera
  21. As evidenced in my last post, I’ve smeared a lot of crap on my face. But, what do I use now? And do I like it? CURRENT ROUTINE: AM: 1. I wake up, pissed off because I haven’t figured out a way to safely inject coffee into my blood stream. 2. Shuffle to bathroom. Shuffle to closet. Shuffle to dresser. Forget what I was doing. Groan. 3. Wash with Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser. Okay, so let’s be honest. I bought the knockoff Wal-Mart Equate Skin C
  22. Finally went to the derm yesterday after a pretty bad face asplosion last week. I started trying a couple new products at once about a month ago so I'm not sure if and which one of them's behind it, but I don't think my acne's ever been quite this bad. Anyways, here's my routine I started last night. Morning Cetaphil cleanser* CeraVe moisturizer Duac Evening Olive oil cleanse (around 3x a week) Cetaphil cleanser CeraVe moisturizer Tazorac .05% *Currently using the Target b
  23. I am in the second week of the regimen with all of the Acne.org products. I am having trouble with the moisturizer, though. I am using it as directed, and with several drops of jojoba oil with every application. However, it feels like it is not absorbing into my skin, just staying on the surface and leaves me looking really oily. I also don't like the yellow stains it is leaving on my pillowcases. Should I give it more time, since my skin is still adjusting, or should I try a moisturizer like Ce
  24. I've posted previously about not being able to find a moisturizer that works for my combo and very acne-prone skin after Spectro got discontinued. Many people have suggested Cetaphil and Cerave. I'm a little bit skeptical about this as there are a lot of mixed reviews online. Also, some of their products' ingredients are listed 3-5 on the comedogenic scale. Please help
  25. General Discussion on Cerave and Spectro Jel cleansers.. which do you prefer? I'm currently on Ziana (Biacna) and I use the spectro jel cleanser but I'm thinking about switching to either the hydrating or foaming CeraVe, if you want to help me out with choosing I have hormonal acne, dry skin from the Ziana but normally combination.
