  1. Hi all, so about a week week or so ago I was on clarithromycin for tonsillitis. After 4-5 days on this I experienced a pretty strong allergic reaction. My skin on face and body was really dry and red, and hot. It was a little itchy. Now it’s a week post. the skin on my face is very dry, tight and flakey. I moisturise multiple times a day and all over my body it’s still very dry. My face gets so oily during the day normally that I have to blot it constantly but now no oiliness. Even the ski
  2. Hi everyone, I've had this red patch next to my nose for as long as I can remember. There is also a spot on my nose that isn't in the picture. I'm honestly not sure what it even is or how to treat it. I've tried derma rolling, aha/bha gel, and other minor solutions but nothing seems to be working :-/ maybe someone else on here is going through the same thing or already went through it and knows what to do. It'd be awesome if anyone can help me out! Thank you!
  3. Anyone who is/has been on these two medications, please tell me how your experience was! I just finished week two and my skin is definitely more dry, but it's not too bad because I do moisturize and that helps. I have noticed a few new small pimples and I know that could be the initial breakout because it's pushing all the bumps under my skin, through. Just wondering what I should expect based on your experiences? if it's worth it to stick through. I never had acne growing up, just recently I s
  4. Can anyone relate to having severely tight/ dry skin coming on suddenly post accutane??? My skin has become painfully tight and feel taught around my mouth, cheeks, and forehead and indescribably dry as the desert. NO OIL PRODUCTION at all. The rest of the skin on my body is increasingly dry and uncomfortable also. This coincides with overly dry/brittle hair & severe hairloss which started a couple months after finishing. cumulative doseage was around 14 000mg's 53 KG adult female
  5. Sooo I'm stuck between a rock and a hard place. My face is constantly irritated (Daniel says this is bad) but its irritated because it is super dry. (Thank you BP) Since it is ALWAYS irritated, especially around my eyes OMG they are so raw! they are so wrinkly and red most of the time and sting whenever my eyes water. My face is so irritated that I find my self always scratching/rubbing/touching my face. (I know Bad girl) I would back off on the BP but I'm still having crazy breakouts and kind
  6. My son has used the regimine for 3 months and his skin gets a little better than goes back to bad acne. The moisturizer doesn't work anymore...what should he do?
  7. Hello people! I have been using the regimen for approx 2 weeks and it makes my skin super dry but then end of the day. This is to be expected for now - but is there anything I can do to ensure my makeup isn't flaky and dried out by the end of the day? I use bare minerals liquid foundation. Primer? Moisturiser? Tricks? Tips? With the dryness chill out soon? Any input is appreciated!
  8. ive been on accutane for 25 days now and its been getting really difficult. Im a 16 year old girl, junior in highschool. I was aware of the side effects before i started and i have really bad cystic acne so im willing to go through all of this due to everyone’s positive experiences on it. My skin just went through the purging stage but im sure the worst is yet to come, ive noticed almost all of my pores on my nose and chin have become full of blackheads that are pushing past the surface, it h

    Dry Skin?

    Many people have dry skin while on medication for their acne. I used to use the St. Ives face scrub but I was nervous to use it because I thought it would irritate my skin and cause even more redness while on Absorica. So while I stopped using the face scrub, I began to get really annoyed by the small dry patches on the top of my arms and on my face. I was looking for a natural remedy and came up with my new 'go-to' for dry skin. The best part? It's completely all-natural, and safe to use anywhe
  11. the problem now is that my face is very dry, i can feel like a layer of dead skin just accumulated on top of my lower part of the face. I want to exfoliate it so bad, but i shouldn't according to the regimen. and yes i do follow the regimen instructions diligently so i do use enough lotion by Dan and i have ordered the jojoba oil and AHA as well (didn't use yet). But it so disturbingly flaky. like around the mouth area and chin. also on the forhead. and those areas seems a bit dark as well. btw
  12. I recently picked my pimple right in the middle of my eyes (HUGE mistake) and it ended up just turning into one big dry, cracked scab. Whenever I put makeup on, it looks like I just have a clump of brown powder on it. I've had it for about a week now, and I've been putting neosporon on it for about 17 hours everyday. I think it's working, but in the middle of the scab is open, red, raw skin that just will not heal. It's so raw that my makeup won't even stay on it, and the dry cracked skin around
  13. Hi everyone, I'm new to the Regimen and I have a few questions that I'm hoping some of you that are more familiar with the Regimen can help me with! A little history about my skin and previous products: I'm 21 years old. I initially started the Regimen last year after seeing the results of my best friend, who recommended I start it. I had never really had acne prior to this point, but since I spent the entire Spring and Summer in Toronto in a really hot climate, I had bumps all over
  14. Hey guys - I was just wondering if anyone had tried fat grafting for the face and how good of a job did the stem cells do on the scarring? Further to that, if anyone has tried it who had chronic dry skin prior to treatment, did it also help the dryness and skin quality? Any information would be greatly appreciate as I am thinking of it as a treatment option for both the above.
  15. Wonder if anyone here can give some advice or combatted the same problem! Male, 32, had acne since I was 13. As I've got older breakouts happen now and again, I go through periods where I hardly get anything. I've had a recent breakout and the worst since I tried Clinique products three years ago they tend to congregate around my mouth mainly. I've got pale skin (Fitzpatrick 1 apparently if that means anything to anyone) and its sensitive. Oily t-zone but dry elsewhere but my skin seems
  16. So I know my skin is supposed to get dry on the acne.org regimen and I'm cool with that. It's annoying to deal with but I know my acne is going away. I apply the BP I let it dry completely into my skin then I apply the AHA with a bit of moisturizer and some jojoba oil. Once that is dried into my skin it kinda still feels a little tacky and sticky so I wait a bit and go over it with a tad bit more jojoba oil but then all these balls start forming and it feels like dry skin clumping up and rubbing
  17. okay so ive finished my coarse of accutane a couple weeks ago and my skin is starting to return to normal, and i was wonering what type of skincare regime would be good for my skin to maintain the clear-ness, because before accutane i was use a lot of facial washes specifically for acne prone skin and toners and benzyl peroxide creams, and now im not sure what to use, now i have normal skin because my previous stuff would damage my skin too much, please help, thankyou xo
  18. Okay so, I have pityrosporum folliculitis(fungal acne all over my face) is there a way to cure and get rid of this forever? I havent had this problem before and only got it after putting on topical antibiotics on my face for a few months. Do you think that folliculitis will go away if I leave my skin alone? What if I use nizoral twice a week, will it go away? Probiotics, do they cure pityrosporum folliculitis? Also, is dehydrated skin normal for fungal acne? I would rather be more thankful if my
  19. I have now been on Accutane for almost a month now. I have seen an improvement on my face, as I am hardly getting any whiteheads, and if I do they are going away very quickly with little effort. My back however has gone very bumpy, but I am praying this is where the blackheads are being pushed out. All the old spots on my back are drying out very quickly which is a positive. However, on the negative side I am really starting to see the side effects kicking in. I have dry lips constantly which
  20. I am feeling so sad. My skin is dry, cracked, and it hurts. It makes me want to take the BP and throw it away. I feel like it's destroying my skin. Like its stripping it of anything good it had left in it. I want to stop using it, but I'm afraid of what may happen. Before I started the regimen, my acne was getting progressively worse. The regimen stopped it in its tracks and even made it a lot better...until recently. I slowly started implementing the routine twice a day, and my skin is so dry
  21. From the album: BEFORE & AFTER ACCUTANE

    This is yesterday 13/2/13 - 21 months post accutane. I am very sick now.
  22. Hey. 21 year old. What kind of scar is this and how can i treat those? My derm told i couldnt do laser beacuse of the skin color/HIP.
  23. Hi there, I'm suffering from severe acne and I am 3 weeks into using the acne.org regimen kit (Cleaner, BP, Moisturizer). I'm not sure whether my skin has been getting better but the attached picture shows there are a lot of dead dry skin and it is looking TERRIBLE, any advice?
  24. HI there, I'm a 20 year old female, with oily combination skin, living in dry climate, I started using the Acne.org treatment around 3 weeks ago. There have been no huge results, and it seems my skin is just getting worse! Being on week 3 it says you will experience a break out after some initial clearing, however I have experienced no clearing, and it seems like my skin is just getting worse and worse. I only wear powder for make up, with the occasional day of tinted moisturizer and I am using
  25. Thought I might try to start an updated thread for skincare on accutane, since new products are constantly coming out and I've never seen a derm that didn't recommend anything other than cetaphil or cerave. I'm a 26 year old male, I started about a month ago, and my derm recommended the usual cerave etc. I tried them out, and aside from the cerave moisturizing cream in the tub I wasn't really a fan. I didn't feel clean and none of those cleansers removed makeup effectively for me. I did find
