  1. hi! looking to see if anyone has a similar story... i had mild acne as a teen and took yaz(generic brand) and it helped immediately!! it was a miracle and i took it up until 2017 because i feel like it made me depressed/gained weight. once i got off it i went from 120 to 105 pounds. i had mild acne nbd for about a year and a half but for the most part my skin was perfectly clear. this past march (24 years old now) my skin broke out horrifically (worse than i’ve ever experienced). it’s
  2. I never thought I had an IB. I never thought my skin was that bad. But tonight I finally found the courage to look at my progress pictures album. I took a photo every day in July and carried this on but now I only take a couple a week. I never thought I had an IB because I thought it could't happen in the first week. But the before pictures here were took on 11th July which was 12 days into my treatment. Yeah my skin is still red but it's CLEAR of acne and bumps. For some silly reason
  3. Hi readers I guess this is my 1 year and 2 months on differin. My situation right now is 70% better. The rest is uncontrol acne that would keep coming. I start to think that this is the most I could get from differin and benzac. I still have pastule, papule and cyst 2 - 3 in each week. Eventhough, I apply benzac all over my face at noght and spot benzac on the cyst itself, it does no effect or little effect to the cyst. My dermatologist recommend me to change to retin-a. Has anyone ever switch
  4. My face is calmer this week, still getting new spots. I am hoping my face will start to clear and heal soon. Ignore the red eyes, my hay fever was particularly bad this week. (yay!)
  5. These are photos from days 10 & 11, unfortunately the next entry will be at the end of week two as I forgot to take photos on the other days. My face is calming down. Still have spots popping up but they go down quicker and are less angry the next day. I may start doing a weekly photo of my face instead of a daily. Bottom photos are day 10, top are day 11.
  6. The first week of this routine is over, not a lot of difference, face seems calmer in the mornings and looks better when I put make up on. Day 6 is the bottom photos and day 7 is top photos.
  7. It's the very beginning of week five and holy crap, my skin is so clear! There are still a few tiny scabs and red dots where some blemishes are still healing but I don't have any active pimples. My skin tone is very even as well, and I've noticed that I have almost zero clogged pores! That's such a miracle to me because in the past even when my skin was perfectly clear, I always had clogged pores in my problem areas. This is such a relief to me because now when my skin clears up it won't breakou
  8. 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
  9. Skin Condition The acne marks on my cheeks still improving, but today they seem to have taken a slight step back The discoloration on my lip is looking better than ever though My chin looking the most inflammed this morning with some new pimples popping up around my mouth. this is where i focused most of yesterdays exfoliation. So i think it was to blame. No dry skin this morning but my skin feels a little irritated. my forehead has lots of little red bu
  10. Skin Condition Per usual, my skin looks the least red in the morning Lots of acne marks still on my cheeks, no surprise The pimples on my lip continue to shrink and dry out The three tiny whiteheads on my chin have reappeared despite popping them so I guess thats a sign not to do that again I actually woke up with what i would describe as slightly OILY skin. Wow. Thats the first time that has happened since I started this treatment. It wasnt gross oily, but like, he
  11. Today I went to the doctors about my skin. I ment my grandfather in the waiting room, who commented that my face was a mess. Immediately I wanted to run home and hide (any bravado I'd managed to work up going there without make up was instantly shot down). Anyways. The doctor took a look, and said that the acne wasn't going to go away on it's own without medicine. She prescirbed me an oral antibiotic and a gel for nighttime. I'm returning next week for a blood test. This might seem completel
  12. Let's see I guess i'll start off by giving you a little idea of who I am. I'm a twenty something year old who works with dogs in sunny Southern California. I enjoy everything the outdoors has to offer. My favorite things to do are hiking, camping, backpacking, rock climbing, kayaking You name it! I've always struggled with hormonal acne, but not until a couple years ago I started breaking out with tiny little nodules under my skin, and soon they spread ALL over my cheeks, and chin. Thanks t

    Well I used Differin the other night! I followed the instructions to a T and made sure i used the 'pea sized' amount that everyone recommends. I was expecting my face to burn up but it actually felt ok, maybe because I put it on straight after moisturising. My face felt no different the next day, or the day after.. However, after showering today, I used my Clarisonic (delicate head) as advised by my derm) and my face felt so raw after, especially around my left cheek bone where I was starting to

    7 Months

    Hey, so just checking in with my monthly update. Nothing new to note, month seven of dianette and differin. No breakouts, scarring still fading. Feel so much better with and without make up. I think it will take me a long time to get over my insecurities about my skin because my last breakout was the worst I have every had. This regimen is keeping me clear and giving my skin time to heal. I am hopeful that in a years time things should be even better, as I have heard that hyper pigmentatio

    Week 12

    So 3 months mark of dianette and 11 weeks of differin. Not much difference to report, I did get one spot/blocked pore in my breakout area on my cheek, I burst it (I can't help myself). It kina scabbed over a wee bit and is now away apart from the redness. Stil have that blocked pore/cyst but though in the last day or two that it was maybe going down a bit. Chin is still very clear as is the rest of my face. I keep getting frustrated thinking I might be left with a couple of scars. but as ti
  16. Hey, so as promised here is my monthly update for you all. It has been just about six months or maybe a little bit more since I started using Dianette birth control and differin to help with a really awful breakout and general terrible skin I was suffering from for about six months. I have keep weekly, then monthly blogs to help anyone else who is starting a similar course of treatment. I think I have mentioned in my previous entries that my breakouts stopped about the 2 and a half to 3 mont

    Day 2

    Hello everyone! I created this blog to track my skin's progress as I begin Isolaz treatments. Mainly, this blog is for me to keep track of how I'm doing, but anyone and everyone, please feel free to comment with your feedback. I'm 22 years old and I've had acne since I was a teenager. It has always been relatively light to moderate until recently. In high school I have used topicals such as Duac and Atralin which were severely drying for me and worked okay, but never fully cleared my skin (A

    Day 57

    Hi all! I hope everyone is having a happy holiday season Since my skin was doing much better after my last Isolaz treatment, I decided to hold off on it and go in again in 4 weeks. My next Isolaz appointment is on January 11th. Although my skin is doing significantly better, unfortunately I'm still breaking out in 2-4 pustules every few weeks or so. I've noticed as soon as my old breakouts completely go away, new ones crop up and it's so annoying...!! I feel like my skin stays clear for
  20. Hello I’ve been using differin for 4 1/2 weeks now and my acne is terrible. I’ve attached pictures. Keep in mind I use to only have like 1-2 pimples here max. Should I quit differin?r
  21. Hello. Curious to see what others were prescribed/advised these two and how you apply them. My doc said differin during the morning every 3 days and benzaclin each night. I had irritation from benzaclin on night 3 but figured that I might've used too much too fast. Because of this I did not start differin yet. I ceased use immediately. I have been using Neutrogena's BP clear pore wash for 10+ years and never had a problem, so I'm assuming that the concentration was too high for something I wasn'
  22. Hey guys, I’m currently on Differin 0.3% and Minocycline 100mg twice daily. I’ve been on the Differin for 3 months and the mino for less than 2 weeks. The Differin was doing absolutely nothing but ruining my skin, and the mino has helped me out a lot. BUT, I’m still getting new pimples every day, and I’m not too fond of the Minocycline. I’m looking for people who have transitioned straight from retinoids and/or Minocycline into Accutane and if you had an initial breakout? My face is FILLED w
  23. Hey is it okay to use Differin at night and Sudocrem in the morning? (with using Vaseline in between) And washing my face with manuka honey soap?
  24. I’ve been on Differin Adapalene 0.3% for 8 weeks and 4 days now. Here’s a rough timeline. Week 1: Face looks great, stoked! Weeks 2-4: IB period, broke out in pustules everywhere including my jawline, which I had never seen acne on before. Skin VERY dry. Weeks 5-6: Stopped seeing jaw acne for the most part, random recurring pustules on cheeks. Skin less dry Weeks 7-8.5 (present): Seeing a few tiny Whiteheads on jawline again (currently 2), still recurring pustules on my cheeks. Not much imp
  25. I purchased differin over-the-counter and started it 09/06/17, using it sparingly every other day since. So that's 3 uses by far. My skin is extra sensitive so to avoid adverse side effects, I decided to moisturize prior to applying differing and yet my skin is so so sensitive. Although I was fully aware of the side effects prior to my usage, I'm not sure how to know when a side effect is serious enough to stop the treatment. Prior to differin, I had completed accutane treatment and it's been
