  1. Hey, I just to get some personal feedback and experience for those who have taken zinc for their acne? I am currently looking for ways to help with my scars and get rid of those little bumps that take forever to go away. Anyway, please share, thank you Below is my current regime: Morning -Wash face a gentle cleanser by my derm (I lather the gel and pat on my face using the palms and then using my fingertips on those confined areas.) -Soak Epsom salt with water and spread the mixture
  2. Hello anyone who reads this! I am 16 and took accutane back in 2013, finished my first course in the August. It did wonders to my skin - changed my life. But of course it came with side effects, I think mine were quite serious. I will now tell you the journey briefly and would extremely appreciate any guidance given to what I should do next. I began accutane on 10mg in the February of 2013, everything was absolutely fine apart from the dryness and slight lower back pain - nothing was se
  3. Hey everyone!!I've had moderate acne for the past 4 years and after endless medications and prescriptions I have built up the courage to go on Accutane! I've read so so many threads and logs and so many people have had great results! For the past 3 months this summer my acne took a turn for the worst after I got bronchitis and had to take a lot of medication (i thought antibiotics would help me??). Anyway, I've been even more depressed than usual and I barely leave the house so I don't pigment m

    Week 3 With Dan The Man

    Hey kids. So I just finished week 3/started week 4. And I'm still pretty pleased w the results of the regimen! As a reminder I'm using 1/3 fingers length of bp twice a day, with dans cleanser and Cerave moisturizer twice a day too. I also just started my 3rd month of the bc pill Trinessa... I try and wear as little makeup as possible. Some Clinique concealer under the eyes and on any zits usually makes me half presentable for a day at work. But I'd like to start trying maybe adding a primer
  5. Fingers crossed my improvements stick! We all know how that can go
  6. Hey guys! So first of all I have a little confession that I'd like to make. I'm already on day 40 of my Accutane journey so basically I'm going to start off this log with a basic summary about myself and of how the past 40 days have gone and then I will be regularly updating this log every couple of days, starting from today. Now for a little background info of myself. I'm an 18 year old Canadian male that has been suffering from mild/moderate acne since I was around 13-14 years old. But on top
  7. Here ya go! Now back to True Detective...
  8. This thread is for differin users to share and support each other whilst going through treatment. I am currently completing Week 8 and the experience has been both terrifying and challenging mentally and emotionally. I have had clear skin all my life until a few months ago when I broke into white comedones specifically on my left cheek. Understanding the science on how differin works (hence, the IB) and actually dealing with it week after week is completely two different things. I felt like I
  9. Hi All! Sorry about my username, I made it really quickly and I was tired so idk haha. OK so this is a log of my Epiduo + Clindamycin (a topical antibiotic solution) journey. I probably had the least acne of anyone on this site. I had about 8 small comedones on my chin that weren't visible if a little concealer was applied. I have the occasional cystic pimple. My "regimen" goes a little like this: Morning- Wash face with Clearasil DermaControl Oil Control Foam Wash Moisturize with Eucerin

    My Accutane Log/experience

    Hi I'm Kylie. Ive been dealing with mild to moderate acne for about 3 years now. At first it never really bothered me but then it got worse and worse (to me) and to the point where it was all I ever thought about. Nothing had ever made me feel so self-conscious before. It was honestly the worst. I tried almost everything to make it go away and it seemed nothing worked. My dermatologist recommened Accutane, which I had never even heard of before so I just agreed right away. Afterwards, I went hom

    My Accutane Diary

    Hi, I'm 20 years old, dealing with mild to moderate acne for about 7 years now. Tried many topical and antibiotics, birth control pill is the only one to make a difference but it comes with too many side effects for me so finally got put onto Accutane. Started last week on 20mg a day. I will be on 20mg for 2 weeks after which I will go up to 40mg until my next appointment with the dermatology nurse on the 1st June. Week one - I've been ill and so I don't know if some of the changes I've be

    If you drink while on accutane would it show up in the blood tests? Also what are the long term effects of drinking on accutane. Thanks

    Week 4 Optimus Prime-R...

    SOOOooo I mentioned last week that I wanted to try a primer/bb cream, yea? Yea, no... Bad idea. For only 2 days last week I tried the Smashbox primer light. It made my face dry as a dinosoar's ass. Needless to say, I live in the desert and it's over 100 degrees daily right now. PLUS the water in Vegas is super hard and terrible for dry, sensitive skin, like MINE OF COURSE LOLOLOL. So only 2 days of this stuff definitely made me break out. I went back to just my regimen and things are improv

    Here's More From Week Four :)

    Here's an adeeeshional peeeecture (read in a Russian accent) I've been really into Russian stuff lately I dunno.
  15. I'm 15 years old and I've had fairly clear skin my whole life. I would get 1-3 pimples at the most and maybe 3-4 when I'm on my period. But it was never a big deal because it would just go away. In the past 2 months, I have been breaking out on my forehead and I still have not found a solution to my forehead acne. It wasn't as bad at first and it was only at the very top of my forehead, and then within 2-3 weeks in the first month my skin was back to normal and I thought it was just a temporary

  17. Hi all! This is my first post ever, although I've spent hours reading this forum since years ago... Three years ago I thought that my nightmare with acne was over, and that I wouldn't come back here, but I was wrong. And this time I want to share my experience, I feel like I owe posting something. So if I can help feel better someone as I did reading other people's posts, I will be really really happy. I am 19 years old. My journey with acne started about 9 years ago, and I have had enough

    My Acne Past

    Sooo...today is the day that I decide to create a blog of my acne experience. I'm doing this to tell other people what will or won't help me over the next months (6-12 months), and to help me keep track of my progress. Another reason was because I couldn't find answers to many questions through a plethora of google searches (such as when your face gets through the purging stages of stopping benzoyl peroxide cold turkey). Let me start off with my acne story... The earliest I can remember h

    7 Days In, Dudes.

    Acne Story

    As a teenager I experienced a small pimple here and there, never anything cystic and never anything I would describe as acne. It wasn't until I turned 23 that my skin began having issues. I returned home from a family vacation with a pretty bad breakout. I tried over the counter products for a couple of months before I decided the breakout wasn't going away. I made an appointment with a dermatologist who took one look at my face (not a very close look) and told me that I had adult acne. Because

  22. I seriously can't remember the last time my face was completely clear. The first time I had breakouts was in 4th grade but I didn't think of it as acne until 7th grade when it progressed and not until junior year of high school did it get really bad. I don't remember a day when I didn't worry about my skin and that truly makes me sad. I hope that now at 18 I won't have to consider having adult acne for long. Does anyone else remember when their skin was nice?

    Accutane Journey

    Hi everyone! My name is Rachel, I am 18 and I just started using Accutane today (40 mg/day). My acne story: It all started in middle school. It was never really bad (just regular pimples all over my forehead) and it stayed for a couple of years...however I managed to clear up quite a bit and kept it under control up until my first year of university (this year). My skin was extremely good until the stress of midterms, my poor nutrition, sleep deprivation hit around this past Nove
  24. Hi everyone! I made it a thing on my list of to-do to write about my Tazorac cream experience. When I first started using Tazorac, the only thing I would search for on the internet constantly was people's experiences and actual progress pictures. I wanted to feel motivated and not feel so alone. So here is some history of my skin. I am currently 19 years old. I started suffering with skin issues when I was about 12. It started on my forehead where I would just get a bunch of bumps and I would
