  1. Bare with me. Its a long story over 8-10 years of knowledge but I hope this helps someone. #Skin RE-CLOGGING ITSELF endlessly My acne slowly slowly started when I was 12 and atm im 22 (first with bumps and pus filled ones and at 20 years oled they were deep big under skin cysts- it was a stressful time w bad relationship/ I ate very much processed food and oils and dairy). At 16 I was on birth control for half a year which didnt help acne and my whole body hated it (depression, low energy, br

    Accutane 20Mg/week

    Hi! So I finished a full Accutane (Oratane) course about a month back with a cumulative dosage of around 6000mg. Skin was great, zero oil, flawless. However, the day after I took my last pill, I noticed the oil returning almost IMMEDIATELY and 5 days later, became significantly oily mostly on my T-zone. Talked to my derm, and he prescribed me 0.025% tretinoin cream (Retacnyl). Have been trying it out for a month and it has not helped with the oiliness at all. I also have an increase in blackhead
  3. I should note that I haven't had any inflamed acne in years (just minor every now and then)- my problem is congestion & comedonal "blocks". The problem is pores which are constantly full of oil & gunk. They then are covered with dead skin cells, with no opening to be removed (crazy because I exfoliate no nobodys business!) Mainly forehead, hair line. I also get cysts (yay!) on my jaw and chin area (related to shaving for extreme hairy face). But regardless I will get them occasio

    Retin A - Ib Stories ?

    Hey all, Before I talk about how Retin A is changing/affecting my face, I'd thought I'd give some quick background info I have [and still have though less severe than before] oily/combination skin which suffers from mild - moderate pustular acne [am 19, so for 5 years now] which has left several red marks over my face, especially on my chin and forehead, chin is probably the worst, as it constantly feels clogged/congested and I tend to pick that area too much I also have moderate bacne/ch

    Closed comedones?

    Ive had ups and downs with inflammatory acne for years now. It's been incredibly bad before and right now its slight/moderate. I've realized that most inflammatory pimples that ive gotten, started out as closed comedones. However, I can't figure out how to get rid of these closed comedones. If I squeeze them, it's always a 50/50 chance that the squeezing will either empty the pore/clear it up, or it will aggravate it and cause an inflamed pimple. I'm wondering what types of products I can use
  6. So I have struggled with small bumps on my forehead for about half of my life (since my teenage years). I had MASSIVE forehead envy whenever I saw someone with a smooth forehead. It seemed too that when I was stressed or tired the bumps would get worse, which made me think it could be some kind of allergy or rosacea for a while. Now I won't oversell my problem - the bumps were colourless and only noticeable when the light caught them, so it could have been worse. I've also had a touch of acne
