  1. Ominous1

    Day 8 & 9

    I can resist everything except temptation. (Wilde) Skin is on the up and up. I have been a little mischievous, I've had chocolate (shock, horror, shock). But such is the price you pay for going home. I think that, and the absurd amount of compliments one receives from relatives. They've all commented on how 'healthy' my skin and hair looks. I'm happy they noticed. However, there is such a thing as too many compliments, and my family kind of crosses that line. It comes across as fawning. Exce
  2. So furious, spent ages writing my blog and it just disappeared!! Going to shorten this entry now. My skin has shown improvement in week 2. The original breakout has gone but a new one has taken it's place. Although not as severe, it's still quite bad. I have had several whiteheads, big red spots around my mouth and a hard cyst under my jaw. My skin overall is very red, tight, dry and flaky, as if I've had a chemical peel. Not a good look! Makeup definitely doesn't work but I can get away wit
  3. Hi everyone so right now I'm on my 5th month of differin and it is definitely helping my skin out (tho sometimes I still get breakouts but not as worst as before) and i just wanted to ask you how can i get rid of this acne marks and control my very oily skin???? please i need your help specifically home remedies, do's or donts, cheap products, and diets pls pls pls i badly need your help. And can green tea really helps with the skin?? is the brand lipton okay??
  4. Sooo.. just thought I'd use this as a place to track everything I'm doing for my skin. If I log, maybe I'll stay on track! Was doing low gi for a few weeks, my skin was getting so much better. Also started juicing a bit and taking extra supplements... until my best friends bday last week and my bfs bday a couple of days ago. Today, I now have about 6 new zits that just sprouted overnight. Could've been anything really.. lIquor, cookies, burgers, brownies, pizza, etc. I'm starting new
  5. Hello! About 2-2.5 weeks ago, I started drinking 3-5 cups/day of green tea, as well as mixing it in with my daily moisterizer (Aveeno Clear Complection), which I apply 3-5 times per day. Over the course of 1 week, I noticed this made a huge improvement, but it was not clearing up everything. Then, I began taking Zinc (25mg/day), Vitamin B6 (100% DV), Vitamin B12 (100% DV), Vitamin C(>100%), and Brewer's Yeast (6 tablets a day w/food) in addition to Vitamin A (100% DV), which I had already be
  6. So I'm a female, in my 20s and I suffer from moderate/severe acne. I use to have very severe acne about three or four years ago, I still think it's still severe to an extent, but not as bad as it was before. Anyway, this is what I'll be using for three months: Clean & Clear 5% BPO wash (or the PCA Skin31 5% BPO wash) Acne.org Treatment (Only at night) Acne.org AHA+ (Only apply at night 2/3 a week) BPO mask (one to twice a week) Taking: Multi+ Daily Glow Mult
  7. I've been putting this off for a long time. I've tried maintaining a diary but this is just more convenient. Okay, so on the 27th of September, I decided to go a month without sugar or dairy. This is the first time I've ever tried eliminating food. I'm a butter/cheese lover, and I REALLY enjoy my chocolates, so it started off pretty hard, but surprisingly by the end of week 1, I stopped having cravings. I've got extremely oily skin with mild acne (there's always a pimple or two, either on
  8. In the past, I was on Tricyclen for 2 years. I remember having mood swings, being very tired, and having bad breakouts for 2-3 months, and then clearing up except when I got really stressed in school/work. I went off it for a few months, and have re-started. I'm on Week 6. I remember that every time I start a new pack, the second row of pills (0.215mg) makes me break out like mad, and makes my mood swings even worse....I cry for no reason (well, mostly about acne, but I normally wouldn't c
  9. Long story short- I got an eyebrow wax while on Accutane. I know you're not supposed to get waxed but I thought hardwax would be okay. The sign in the spa said "If you're on Retin-a, antibiotics, blah blah...or Accutane, ask for hardwax." Wouldn't that indicate that hardwax was safe for Accutane? Supposedly it's gentler....:/ Anyway, I feel really stupid because my skin was ripped up. One side is much worse than the other. I expected it to scab but it didn't. This happened last night. I wok
  10. Hi, Ghost here. I've been stalking these boards for a while now reading everyone's logs and have decided to do my own. Let me tell you a little about myself; I'm 18 years old, now while I've suffered from the occasional zit or pimple since I was 12, I have never had more than one at a time. Then VOILA! a couple of months ago I started breaking out pretty badly. ((No, I haven't changed my diet, or any other part of my lifestyle)) The only thing I can figure is that it is from stress
  11. I'm 17 years old and I have suffered from moderate acne since I was about 12-13. I've tried alot of things (not Accutane though), until recently I tried taking 50 mg of Zinc a day and voila! 95% of my face acne is gone, just the occasional pimple on my chin or on my cheek (like 1 or 2 a week max, it used to be 3-4 a day). My regimen is the following: 25 mg Zinc with breakfast and 25 mg with Lunch I wash my face with a Dead Sea soap in the morning and at night (contains Coconut Oil, Palm Oil, De
  12. last week was alright my skin was bad but i went to school everyday and dealt with it, but by the end of the week i ended up having three cysts on my nose.....right now my nose is huge and red with bumps and on top of that all the little whiteheads around my mouth and cheeks/ greasy skin..im going back to the derm in a few weeks, it just really sucks because i feel so ugly last night i was brave enough to go out with friends but thought about my skin the whole time i was out and i tried so hard
  13. Almost every single food that I look up on here has some way of causing acne, I have been eating fruits and vegetables all week and drinking lots of water and de-caffeinated green tea, along with seeds and some fish. However I do not have a car yet, I am 18, my mom is very busy and does not have the time to go shopping everyday for food. I have a lot of food in my house but basically everything "aggravates acne" including cheerios, nutri grain bars and meat/eggs. It is not fair I am always h
  14. Hello folks. I'm new to posting, but not to reading. I decided it was time to get accountable for my health (which obviously affects my skin -- no question about that for me), and to contribute to this forum, having benefited from many options that I would not have considered had it not been for others' experience on here. On that note, I'd like to thank all those who have shared their experiences with treatments on here, it just goes to show the diversity of people's body chemistry, how diffe
  15. Here we go then! Initial post listing everything (or mostly everything) I ingest and apply, however this log will focus primarily on products I apply to my skin, rather than my diet. Anything pertaining to diet and supplements will be logged in my alternate thread "2 decades of acne, time to start (diet) logging!" This list, extensive as it is, still is not as detailed as it should be. This is something I am hoping to modify as soon as possible. Additionally, I must emphasize that I do not and
  16. I've never really had a problem with acne until I hit my twenties. Here I am, nearing my 30th, dealing with uncomfortable amounts of acne including, but not limited to: cystic, whiteheads, blackheads and the occasional pustule/papule. Large pores which popped up within the last year and a half, tons of sun damage/hyperpigmentation, ice pick, rolling, and a few box car scars. PIH in about 6 different spots and dark facial hair (really can't stand this). Supposedly no hormonal problems though s
  17. Hello, So I just started the regimen the beginning of this week with OTC products using the Neutrogena BP twice a day. My skin did itch and I felt a slight burn but it didn't seem to have any real negative effects on my skin. Yesterday I received Dan's products and used it last night. My face was very itchy throughout the night. This morning I woke up to find my face very red but mostly contained to where the acne is (cheeks, around mouth)! Also some parts of the skin has become rough and a li

    My Story

    So I've had acne for almost nine years now. Sometimes it doesn't bother me but other times it gets me really depressed. When I was wearing makeup, I found it easier to look at myself in the mirror so it got to a point where I would wear makeup every single day, even if I wasn't leaving the house. I hated how I looked with no makeup on. I tried every acne product within my means and of course nothing ever worked. I even tried some natural stuff, lemon juice, tea tree oil, lavender oil, honey e
  19. Here's my whole story, If you don't want to read all this just scroll down toward the bottom for my regimen. I'm just looking for some personalized advice to make my regimen more efficient. I'm going to include every detail I can provide into this post so that nothing is overlooked, and I can receive the maximum amount of input from you guys to finally beat this thing, since you are on this website I'm sure you can understand that way of thinking, so I apologize if it's a bit lengthy. MY STOR
  20. DAY 1 Hi everyone! English is not my native language, so please bear with me while I'm making mistakes. I'm 30 years old and have had the problem of compulsive face picking for over 20 years. After watching nichibeicafe's confessional videos and reading this forum for the first time just yesterday I decided to stop picking at my face. I was really impressed at nichibeicafe's progress, found her very charming and somehow started thinking that I could do it too. I feel so incredibly inspired. I
  21. I've been on the paleo diet for around 6 months now after having severe acne on my chin. At first I didn't notice much difference til I cut out fruit not that long ago and things started improving quite well. However now things are just getting worse again.. I think it may be after a meal with wholegrain basmati rice but that was atleast 3 weeks ago.. My diet consists of: breakfast- 2or3 boiled eggs, handful of nuts containing brazil
  22. Hey, First of all when i started on my regimen i was very skeptical. But with help from all you guys and this website i am 95% clear just a few pimples here and there, i use Cetaphil daily moisturizer, and 2.5% BP on pimples that pop-up. i think the big thing that helped was changing my diet. I drink lots of tea (green tea mostly) and eat healthy natural foods, which i believe really works! only one question that i ask is that most my skin is clear but still really oily, is this natural, or is
  23. Well I would say that I am pretty healthy I workout a few times a week, not much cardio though, and I guess you can say that my stress level is extremely high all the time, as I am a very anxious person. I am in good shape, athletic build, always have my whole life, but for the sake of my skin and overall mind and health, I am doing this routine. My new health/acne Regimen Morning: Cetaphil Cleanser Aczone Cream Cetaphil Moisterizer Cetaphil Sunscreen 3 glasses of water Doxycycline startin
  24. My acne tends to get REALLY itchy at times. And i know i shouldn't scratch, becuase when I do my acne seems to multiply or triple in even just an hour. I have really oily skin, but also really sensitive skin (judging by how easily I get acne). Anything too strong causes more acne and flaking, even though my skin is still oily. I've been using green tea mosturizors, and I'm still not sure if that's been working. The only thing I've found that works is ocean water, and I don't live near an ocean,
  25. I made a toner with bottled lime and lemon juice, ACV, and a little sliced cucumber. I diluted the mix with about 50/50 with water. The mixture was made with equal parts. I made this because I have some scarring and red marks, not to mention some active spots. Since I heard all of these worked pretty good I thought why not make a non-irritating toner and when I applied it a couple hours ago it didn't sting. My regimen is clindamycin lotion and retin-a 0.1 cream. I also started to drink gre
