  1. Hey! So my acne started back in march, after trying out first time birth control and staying on it for a week, stopping because of explosion of acne I had never experienced before. Then immediately following a taper of a corticosteriod called prednisone, because my doctor thought it was a rash on my face that was some sort of allergic reaction--which was false. It was acne.. Theres the background... So I've experimented on my own with different supplements--fish oils, multivitamins designed
  2. Hi all. So I was on accutane back in 2013 with great success. However, back in November I had a breakout that was a little worse than usual. I wasn't too worried because I tend to get these in a very minor form still a week or so before my time of the month. However, at the same I had been to see a doctor because I was having issues with painful periods, bad PMS etc and she recommended that if I wanted a natural solution I should try Evening Primrose Oil. I started taking these with grea

    Oily Skin Experiment

    Let me start by telling you that I am a full time college student and a part-time EMT who has suffered VERY oily skin and is no stranger to Accutane. I took isotretinoin for 5 years—some of it was supervised by a physician, some of it wasn’t—not that I need to get into that right now. I have been off of Accutane since September 2013 and I wont ever be going back—also a conversation for another time. SO, I have been experimenting with different supplements, vitamins and lifestyle changes for
  4. Hey guys So since we last spoke (I spoke you read) I felt as though clearogen was being way too harsh on my skin so I made some changes. I'll go into my current routine later on. On Friday I had an appointment with a new derm... He told me my acne is probably genetic (even though it's clearly around my jawline and was caused by Yasmin one would think its hormonal hmmm). We did speak for about 45mins (my apologies to the people waiting for their appointment after me). He suggested roaccutane t

    From the album: My Skin

    Hey y'all. Just an update on my skin, this photo was taken today, April 1st, 2014. I have recently begun taking beta carotene again (after weeks of being without it), & I have also added a mixed capsule of fish oil, borage oil, & flax, plus a primrose oil supplement (supposedly it helps to balance a woman's hormones). I also plan on taking a probiotic I purchased regularly as well because I'm trying to restore my "good" gut bacteria. Topically, I have been doing a lot of Glycolic acid
  6. Hey guys, Since my last blog entry I have only been suffering with acne in the corner of my forehead. I get small bumps on my jawline but nothing major and I treat them with a face mask(as a spot treatment). My updated skincare routine is as follows: PM: acne.org cleanser clearogen cleanser (daily) Acv toner pixi glow tonic tone ole henrikson night treatment la roche duo and H moisturiser Sunday riley artemis (amazing oil but hurts my bank account) Products I use sparingly: Alp
  7. New blog so I can post photos! Duh! For your reference... this is me: Meet Natalie! Today at work...I'm dead. I'm so sleep deprived I have no idea how I'm still functioning. I ate and I feel sick. It's about 4pm. I'm ready to go home and sleep. I had to start this blog because my other one ran out of MB??? I don't even know. Ain't nothin' changed...Drinkin' tea...Workin'...YOU already KNOOOOW. photos with my hair down are last night and today with my hair up at work looking like death hah
  8. I recently started taking 1300 mg epo by the brand sport research. It has fairly good reviews for acne. 87/91 of the reviews are positive. However when I started taking it, the pimple on my forehead and between my eyebrows became bigger and red. I had also consumed a slice of cheesecake that day so idk if it was the epo or the cheesecake. I did some more research on epo and discovered that it does make many people break out, some people recommend taking it with fish oil. Will fish oil with epo b
  9. I have what I suppose is fairly mild acne but it really upsets me and affects my confidence. I am a bit stuck for whether to continue using the acne.org treatment because I feel like it has made my skin worse and it doesn't seem to be getting me anywhere. And the fact that makeup makes me look like a lizard isn't helping because I can't even hide behind a mask! Here is a brief history of my issue... I am 26 now, I started getting acne at around 24-25 and tried all the usual shop things. My
  10. Hi there! I am a 21 year old woman, and I just started using acne.org. I'm from Denmark, so my english is not flawless I've always had unclear skin, starting in my teens, but it has been ok, I could keep it at bay with topicals and murad skincare. But then I got really sick with anorexia, and as I slowly gained weight again in recovery, my acne exploded. Never had bad cystic acne, but really really bad whitehead (inflamed) acne especially on my lower cheeks. It made me absolutel

    Hey y'all. Same ish as usual. Just working my butt off. For the past week or so, I have been taking my walk around the lake in the mornings usually at 10:45-11:45 or sometimes 11:45-12:45. Depends on how work is goin and if shit pops off. I've been getting good sun. The morning sun is the BEST. It's currently 93 degrees where I'm at. AND NO BREEZE LOL. I have not been putting argan oil on my face in the mornings-- just at night before I put on my aloe. So my routine for the past two nights ha

    Last night was the same mask as usual-- I tried the rosehip oil out finally, after the Argan and before the aloe. It's 5:55am right now and it's time to punch today in the face haha!! It's 10:25am right now...Work is KA-RAZZZZY. I'm going on my walk after I eat a snack. Yayyyy. its almost 8:30pm I'm going to lay down and rest I'm dead I'll deal with life tomorrow
  13. Hi all, I am new to this site but have been following with interest for some years. I have always struggled with my skin but consistently one thing has always helped: the mini-pill. I'm aware of how unusual this is because typically the mini-pill causes acne to get worse, but there it is! However, the pill also has some bad side effects for me, namely hair loss and terrible mood swings, so last year I came off it. I felt amazing, the hair loss stopped, and my skin was almost perfect for about
  14. I havn't posted on here for a while! So I have had a pretty notable success using these two in conjunction with eachother, I think AgnusCastus has been the most effective in helping keep me clear as I don't suffer with hardly any hormonal acne any more, I get maybe one/two around my time of month and then they subside and my skin has gotten clearer and clearer with each month I have been on it. Also my periods are a lot shorter and lighter maybe only lasting 3/4 days and not heavy at all. Anothe
  15. Basically I can keep my acne somewhat under control (never 100% clear) with the use of a BP regimen but i'm still not happy with the fact that my skin is a complete oil slick - no kidding I can see little droplets of oil on my noise 20 minutes after washing my face. So i've decided to get internal and supplement to see if this reduces my oil production in any way. So this is my regimen as of today: TOPICAL Quinoderm 5% Dove Sensitive Beauty Bar Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion INTERNAL Saw Palm

    Hey y'all. Happy thursday! I did not take my N-A-C this morning. And I'm going to be taking a break off taking that, for a little while. I ate like 10,000 calories today. Not really more like 2700 but I walked over 5 miles for sure because I charged my phone so I didn't have it on me for an hour and I still walked almost 5 miles today. Plus most of those calories are from nuts lol, deeeeez nuts. im looking into what it takes to be a paralegal. So yeah, that's what ya girl Natalie is do
