  1. 2 months on my regimen! My skin felt smoother and improved 50 %! My mom even commented on my progress. Though to be honest i still feel insecure, mainly due to hyperpigmentation. Most prominent after face washing, but 1 hour later my face looks dewy and almost close to being clear (i dunno if optical illusion or something). And i still do get 2 or 4 small pimples a week, which resolves within 2 to 3 days with bp (spot treatment) and differin (whole face) ONLY at night. Well thats expected from w
  2. Hello! Brief introduction, I'm 17 this year and i'm Asian. I live in a humid country. My acne main concerns are on my cheeks as they are everywhere on my cheeks and get dry in the night but oily under the sun/will turn red. I have a few acne on my jawline too.Daily routineMorning:Slather my face with Raw Honey (Really Raw Honey brand) for at least 30minutes to an hour ; sometimes when i'm lazy or in a rush, i use Cetaphil Gentle Skin CleanserWash it off and apply toner (I use Bragg's Apple Cider
  3. So after seeking a second opinion from my trusted GP he advised not to go on Accutane next week. I explained to him that all the listed side effects I currently experience so imagine what it would do to me... I get flaking skin (which has calmed down since coming off epiduo), dry lips, joint pain and not to mention a stressful job. I Know I know Im scared and trying to talk myself out of going through. Funnily enough in the past month my skin has really started to clear. I'll post my curren

    Epiduo Sting

    I have been applying Epiduo for the past 3 nights, all is good. But when i apply the moisturiser after it its stings soooo bad and wont stop. Im just using Cetaphil. Can any one recommend a moisturiser that doesn't sting? If I just leave it I turn in to super dry peely red face :/ I put it on about 40 minutes ago and it still hurting.. I do not like. Suggestions? Thanks
  5. Hey guys, So I have been using Cetaphil's gentle cleanser to wash my face for about a year. However, it still dries my face a ton!!! I thought it was supposed to be one of the least drying products out there! If anybody has any experience with another cleanser that might be less drying please let me know. I can't even go swimming without my face looking totally dried and flaky. Please please please let me know if any of you guys are using a product that is less drying. It would help me immense
  6. Hi all! So I've been on roaccutane for 3 months now, I'm on 30mg. I've had mild to moderate acne for 6 years now & tried roaccutane as basically a last chance saloon. Not seen huge results so far, but my skin is noticeably drier; yes this is a good thing & the purpose but putting make up on is a nightmare!! I use liquid concealer & a power foundation obviously to hide the spots & scarring. Under my make up I've been using Cetaphil moisturiser but the dryness remains, and half
  7. Hey to everyone, I haven't been on here in a while. I have been really busy with my school work. I finally acheived clear skin during the summer 2014. I was put on Epiduo in February and Clindamycin gel in May. It took up until May for my skin to finally start clearing up and it kept getting better from there. It didn't stop breaking out until the middle of May I think. The clindamycin gel played a part in that because I can't use any other face washes besides cetaphil gentle skin wash b
  8. Okay, so I have mild to moderate acne, mostly around my mouth and cheeks in form of whiteheads. I have very sensitive skin that gets dry and peels very easily. I was prescribed benzaclin about two years ago and used it sparingly, and it helped my skin but recently my skin has started to get not so good again. I went to the doc and was prescribed Retin-A Micro and Benzaclin again. What I usually do is wash my face with salicylic acid in the morning, moisturize with SPF, and at night use a BP/sa
  9. 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!
  10. hello everyone this is my first ever post as i just signed up for some guidance.. i would say i have fairly mild acne, its not alot in any one area its just spaced out over my face so its not cystic and i dont very often have white heads on my face which is good, although i constantly have blackheads on my nose that are only really noticeable up close. okay so heres my story ive had acne since i was around 15 (im now 20) the severeness has changed a few times.. in june 2012 i suffered a bra
  11. So I've decided I'm going to follow the regimen precisely. Recently I've jumped in to the full benzoyl peroxide dosage charts and my face has literally felt like a statue! My aim is to be clear for when I go to China on a school trip in October. My name is, well just call me clear, and I love cats. I'm also fairly sporty and enjoy football (come on you R'sssss). As I'm a Britain the price for ordering the Acne.org products is horrendous, so ive bought products from stores, here they are; C
  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. 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
  15. Hey guys, I'm 16 and I just recently stopped using differin after two years of a red face. I don't want to jinx it, but my face is going well so far. I've also been using Cetaphil gentle cleanser for about two years also and I'm not really convinced it cleans well. Maybe I'm over exaggerating because I have two nearly invisible blackheads that I'm scared will turn into pimples (because I know they will). Whenever I'm washing my face after a shower, if i use my hands to try and exfoliate gently,
  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. Hey, I start my first prescription of isotretinoin/accutane tomorrow and I'm wondering what the best skincare products are to use? I bought a Cetaphil moisturiser today, as well as a La Roche-Posay cleanser, lipbalm and moisturiser. Do people recommend getting a Cetaphil cleanser too? Possibly a body wash and body lotion? Everything else I have at the moment is scented and will be too harsh on my skin whilst on the meds. Any advice is really appreciated. Lizzie x
  18. hey everyone, I went to the derm. today and was prescribed 0.4 Retin-A, Duac, and Doxycycline, and I've been using Cetaphil gentle skin cleanser to wash my face. Does anyone have any advice or tips and tricks to avoid skin irritation, and how long it will take to see results. Please help!
  19. So, more about Spiro and Doxy. FYI: this post is a bit messy, I promise I'm not usually this confusing. I'll post pictures later, but basically, I have cystic acne on the bottom half of my face--mostly concentrated on my lower cheeks, but also some on my jaw line and chin. My nose and forehead are actually quite nice looking. So I went to an endocrinologist and got my hormones tested. Everything is good except my DHEA, which is way high (darn adrenal gland, malfunctioning). Accord
  20. So my basic cleanser is quite simply amazing. Clinique Rinse off foaming cleanser. I love it. Although I admit I have tossed it to the side lately and used Clearasil as I was depressed and desperate. The Clinique is so gentle and great at removing make up, it makes you feel super clean and it's the only thing I trust to use while taking the Roaccutane. Cetaphil moisturiser I am using just because of the recommendations for this while on treatment. It normally brings me up loads of closed comed
  21. Hey there, I went to my dermatology appointment today at Harley Street Dermatology Clinic. Very fancy I know! Anyway, my doctor was really great and she answered all my questions. I am still very unsure of the link between digestive system and skin but that is another blog for another day. So, she said I am doing all the right things using non-comedogenic moisturisers and cleansers (Cetaphil) and said to stay away from anything that could potentially irritate the skin so that includes any sc

  23. Okay so this is my first ever blog on here, I started taking accutane 20mg a day 19 days ago and want to share my experiences on the drug. So here goes... My skin had been slowly improving ever since day one. I thought I was one of the lucky few who only ever improve on accutane and skip the whole IB phase.. but no I got my first horrific breakout yesterday morning when I woke up (day 18). I now have three active pimples on my forehead, one on my nose and a few (I gave up counting after 11.
  24. Hi everyone! Short-time lurker, first-time poster! My acne is mild (a few pimples a month). A while ago I regularly used Phisohex Face Wash. For the past four days, twice a day, I’ve used Cetaphil Gentle Cleanser. Both of these products make my whole face dry, and my brows and nose become flaky. A short while ago I went a week of washing my face twice a day with only water, and as a result my face didn’t feel as dry -- and there was no flakiness. Apart from these two products, I don't us
  25. Can anyone recommend a facial mask I could try at home without having to spend so much money of products? And how often should I do it? My current cleanser is Cetaphil AM/PM and Retin-A 0.1%. Which I'm thinking of trying CeraVe due to so much talk about here because I'm not happy with Cetaphil. I may just use what's left as a body wash and start CeraVe on my face. A few days ago I exfoliated with a facial brush. I did it with the Cetaphil and I wasn't rough. It looks as though I took
