    Going To Give This A Try

    I just ordered the acne treatment regimen for the face will arrive in a few days. I am hoping this will work to clear up my skin, feeling optimistic. I do see that acne.org has a seperate wash just for the body, is anyone using that? I read from a peer reviewed article that you can infact use the same acne wash on your face onto your whole body. Is anyone else using the face wash on their body instead of buying two different treatments? I also would like to know of the side affects that actually
  2. Day 6 on Zenatane 40mg a day (20mg morning and night): Skincare and makeup: CeraVe foaming facial cleanser (morning and night) DHC deep cleansing oil (to remove makeup) CeraVe moisturizing lotion (morning and night) Aquaphor (for lips) Tarte amazonian clay foundation NARS creamy concealer Update: Minimal symptoms / side effects No major breakouts - small pustules near both temples but smooth texture overall Eyes feel a little dry and tired Feeling more lethargic than usual (although did
  3. (Beware for the dreaded long long long post! I hope some of you have the patience to read and help! ) Hey guys, so in just over a week I will be starting Accutane. I'm, understandable, terrified and could really do with some advice, suggestions and, overall, positivity. Some basic info; I'm a 23 year old guy from England. I've always suffered with mild acne (as in, I'd always have one or two spots somewhere on my body) and dryness/redness around my nose and the surrounding area (looked
  4. Bit of background: I was always a "spotty teenager" (also see: fat, short, awkward, bit too clever to be considered popular), but nothing horrific. I first noticed blackheads on my nose, spilling out across a 1/3 of my cheeks when I was about 12 years old - they have been an ever-present friend ever since. I used to get the odd whitehead, couple of little pimples now and again. The doctor put me on oral contraceptives when I was 16 because, well, when I had my exams, I turned into a hormone
  5. I've had mild acne and have tried countless treatments and products. Yet nothing seems to fully get my skin clear for a continuous time. I figured by having mild acne and just buying the 3 step Regimen would that be a good starting point? Or should I go ahead and purchase the $80 kit with the jojoba oil and Aha treatment as well? My skin doesn't severly dry up so I was just thinking of going with the 3 step process and trying it out. If later on I feel it's necessary to purchase the jojoba oil a
  6. So I've been prescribed 100mg of monocycline and ziana to help with my mild acne. My acne is far from severe but it is persistent and I do sometimes get cystic acne. My dermatologist looked at my skin and after telling her I have very sensitive skin, that benzoyl peroxide drys me out she prescribed ziana. Now I've never been on a prescribed medication let alone a retinal ( is that how it's spelled?) and she did not inform me what so ever about the possible side effects or that you shouldn't be i
  7. The topic title makes me both happy and extremely sad at the same time. Eh. ANYHOO, HEYA! Let's dive right into the story, shall we? Well, it all began when I was born... No, kidding, a newborn baby with a face full of volca-coughcough-acne would be kind of scary, don't you think? So... yeah. I kinda had acne since early teenage years. It was never bad, just a zit here and there. BUT THEN HIGH SCHOOL HAPPENED. I mean, aren't those 3 years (not from the US, by the way) of torture enough? Isn'
  8. Hello everyone! I am brand new to joining this site after using it for years to read reviews on certain acne products and treatments. I am about to go to the doctor next week and ask to be put on Accutane. He has talked to me about my acne before, so I'm pretty confident with him putting me on the medication without a problem. I have never used Accutane, and I'm hoping it can help me out, seeing as it has helped a lot of people before. I know a lot of you are very against Accutane, but I real
  9. I'm fifteen, almost sixteen and I just began taking Accutane for the first time. I have cystic acne and have had it for a while, and the dermatologist quickly recommended Accutane after a short period of antibiotics. I'm on 80 mg a day for five months and I have to say I'm a little nervous. I'm always a skeptic, especially when it comes to a "miracle drug" like Accutane seems to be portrayed as. I've heard of people whose acne didn't entirely go away and had to go a second time, and I really don
