  1. This whole time I was eagerly waiting to start month 4 because during my last round I took photos as often as I could remember and it w after month 3 that I noticed a definite improvement in my skin. And, I can say that has held true! I don’t have any major breakouts. I don’t still have quite a few very small unnoticeable comedones on my chin that I honestly don’t know if they’ll ever come to surface if I don’t aggravate them. I sort of want them out, tho. Is it worth the break out and potential
  2. The dryness is back. My skin is really flakey and it is making it really hard to wear make up without it cracking and looking horrible. Really don't want to leave my house but trying my hardest to keep the dryness down. Spots are still there but not as angry.
  3. Hi there guys I was just wondering if someone could tell me what severity of acne I have. I have had acne since I was about 12-13 much worse than it is now. Currently I use epiduo every night with aveeno moisturiser afterwards and I use a black pore mask once a week. However despite this I continue to suffer with large red pimples under the skin that are painful and take a long time to go away. Does anyone have any tips to help get rid of these because they make me extremely unhappy and make me
  4. This year, I've become increasingly frustrated with my acne since it has started appearing more frequently in strange places - like my forearms, hands, fingers, and stomach. While in the past I put my acne concerns on the back burner, recent events have made fighting this acne a much higher priority. It's at least somewhat socially acceptable to have acne on the face - or on the back and chest - but not other weird places. It's just scary and frustrating to think that I might not have any c
  5. I'm sorry I haven't posted about the past few days. I didn't have time to access the internet this weekend. I'll just quickly summarize how my skin's been doing: Day 25: Again, flaky skin. Even though I was in a van for about 10 hours, I insisted on wearing makeup the entire day. There were travel videos to worry about and such. I bought Tarte's Maracuja Miracle Foundation the day before, which is a liquid. The woman selling me the product was successful in convincing me that liquid f
  6. I just need to post a bit to get it off my chest - the scars on my face are driving me MAD!!!!!!!! I just had to do my makeup outside, in sunny, natural light, where I NEVER look at my skin too closely, and I want to shrivel up and die. Honestly, I don't even do my makeup much anymore because it's somehow less depressing, if that makes sense? The thing is, all this has only happened within the past year, my skin was totally normal - not perfect, but normal - before last Fall. And no
  7. hey hey im kay i have had an acne problem for 5 years and a very bad case of acne i have cystic acne and it it very painful and irritated most of the time . when i was in grade 7 my acne started it wasn't at it worst but it was bad more than anything it was painful not just physically painful but emotionally painful .at the time i was the only one in my class with acne and no1 knew how to react i never used foundation or anything to hide it because i assumed it would make it worse and in a few
  8. I probably won't post in this blog very much, but I wanted to share my journey with everyone and have my whole story in one place so people know where i'm coming from. My battle with acne started years ago, probably when I was 11 or 12. I hit puberty early (I was 9) so I got to go through the awkward phase even sooner than most. Yay! I started out with the typical solutions to acne- when you're 11, mom says 'Just wash your face and you'll grow out of it soon enough'. When it became apparent
  9. Yesterday I took the plunge and posted here for the first time. Acne (however mild) has been 'my secret' for about a year now. I realize people know I have it, but I don't talk about it to others and they don't mention it to me. First of all i'd like to mention the help I've recieved from this website. By reading what Dan has to say and what other memebers have had to say, has really helped me a lot - you guys are so knowledgeable. All I can say is thank the lord one of us is, I still have a
  10. I wish I had some photos of myself... Just to update on the progress of my current skin cleansing regimen which I have found works well for my sensitive skin. To reiterate, I do have sensitive skin that stings & burns when it comes into contact with certain chemicals. What exactly those are I never know, but I'm trying to be minimalist and more natural in my skin care. For example, I burned myself with a small amount of Vaseline. Go figure. In the future, if I require something to help
  11. Helo! Can't believe I have been following the regimen for 3 weeks already (booyeah)! After all the redness, flaking and itchy skin, I have finally passed that stage already. My skin is no longer red but as compared to my neck, it is still a bit darker. But yea most of the active acne, I can say, are 95% gone from my face There are still acne scars caused by previous acne in some part of my cheeks. But as for the forehead and nose area are pretty much cleared. My current skin routine: -
  12. Hi everyone, i'm a 16 year old girl. l've been fighting this battle for going on 5 years. The reason i'm starting this blog is because i've spent hours and hours reading people's stories, and watching Youtube videos. l hope my story will help someone else. SOME HISTORY: My mom never had a problem with her skin. My dad on the other hand had severe cystic acne on his nose, jaw line, arms, chest, and back. ( He still gets huge cysts sometimes from stress.. ) WHEN IT STARTED: l started gett

    DAY 29

    I put make up on today for the first time in a few days and I'm really happy with how my skin looks underneath It kind of just looks like I'm somebody who has had a breakout! No dryness either! I get a little on my cheek and eyelids the odd time, but nothing that moisturiser won't fix
  14. Isn't it wonderful that I last made a post on here five years ago and still haven't solved my acne problems -___- So, brief overview so as not to bore you (I'm sure no ones reading this anyway), I am 20 years old. In college. Had acne since I was 13. I've tried benzoyl peroxide, (works awesome as a spot treatment, not for prevention), salicylic acid, epiduo (great spot treatment too), some antibiotics that made me feel like vomiting 24/7, and I've finally made the decision to try accutane.
  15. Wow so I found out my make-up, Bare Minerals, might be the thing that is clogging up my pores! It contains mineral oils and other ingredients, like talc and bismuth, which irritates the skin! Plus, I use Benefit's Boiing concealer, and it is used on my affected areas.. So, I decided to go for Tarte foundation and concealer (paraben and oil free), and tomorrow I am going to buy a pur-minerals primer. The Tarte foundation covers more so I don't have to pack on the concealer.. and the primer is als
  16. Dan's products have arrived! I'm so excited! I can't wait to update on how they feel/work out, but first, I have some news from yesterday: SO, I had full coverage for my performance last night. I used Bare Minerals powder, and quite honestly, I've decided that I hate the way it looks on my face. I have very oily skin, and Bare Minerals has no problem showing that. I wasn't sure why a powder would make skin oily at first; maybe because I didn't use the matte formula? Anyway, Bare Min
  17. Okay! So far so good. Today's going to be interesting, though. It's only been two days, but I'm enjoying this. STILL waiting on Dan's products, but the BP's definitely working it's magic, despite my redness/flakes. I mentioned in my previous post that I accidentally popped a pimple...woops! BUT, I put some tomato juice on it, and today there was minimal redness and absolutely no swelling. Lovely! I was so excited about these results that I made a tomato juice/seed mask this morni
  18. If you haven't seen my first post** A blog documenting my returning cystic/nodular acne after 2 rounds of accutane. Considering a third but hopefully I don't have to get to that point again. Makeup tips for the ladies. Hopefully reading my posts helps you get through your acne struggle. _________________________________ After a happy derm appointment this Monday who noticed my cheeks were looking much less inflammed at the end of the week - things kind of did a 360 when I felt my c

    Update: Day 27

    Hi, I've finally gotten the full Regimen Kit from Dan himself. *woohoo* I have noticed that my skin is getting WAY better eve since I really start to seriously used this product a couple of weeks ago My forehead and nose area is completely clean, however there are still some bumps and a bit of scarring in my cheeks area. I'm so in love with the regimen and what it has done to my skin that I decided to let my sister and a friend of mine try to use it as well I've finally found a routine a
  20. No massive change since yesterday. I seem to be getting a few cyst type spots-an overdue initial breakout maybe? Not sure if Accutane removes blackheads but I'm sure my nose seems to be clearing up a bit, and I definitely have less comedones around my mouth/cheeks. Wish I could fast forward to next month and see how my skin is by then. Been thinking about what foundation I'll use once it starts clearing up a bit more. I use Estee Lauder Doublewear at the minute, dunno whether to use the lighte
  21. Ok, ive been using covergirl concealer for idk how long now. & i decided i can never find it really anywhere & im not 1OO% sure on if it was ok for my skin. i went to a local walmart... & after seeing my friends youtube video she lovessssss maybelline superstay foundation. i was between 2 concealers & decided to try their concealer since she lovedddd! their foundation. i just dont like the size of the tube. its so small & it cost almost $7.OO. im thinking of trying their
  22. I have been using neutragina micro-clearing power coverup thats supposed to help clear up the skin while serving as its coverup purpose. I've been using it for about 6 months. Now this stuff isnt cheap. Just for the small circular case, its $14 and comes with a crappy little applicator with a mirror. The question is, is it even worth it when I can just get like a regular coverup for like $8 with the same applicator and mirror.
  23. I've just started watching The Wire. A friend of mine has been trying to get me to watch it for about six months. At first I couldn't even give it a shot, because it's so... gritty... There really is no other word to describe it. And it's real, at least for the hour you watch it (or two, because I can never seem to watch just one episode). You get totally sucked in, right down to getting immersed in the jargon they throw around. The characters are real, nothing's black and white, and despite the
  24. Now I know you guys missed me, it's been so long since my last entry, so here's a quick bullet-point entry to bring me back up to date (hehehe); Today: I did not go to the shopping centre and buy all the things I meant to (blender for smoothies/margaritas, sieve and mixer for baking chocolate-chip biscuits, non-comedogenic makeup, toothpicks) I did not wash my spare towels, or do my ironing, or go to the supermarket and buy healthy (or indeed any) food I did not go for the 8 km jog I wanted
  25. Fun fact! So far, I have spent 34.52% of a year on this medicine. Really puts it in perspective... Well, good news and bad news. Good news first because the bad news kinda null and voids the good news... I only have one month and 14 days left for this course! That is... if I remember to take my pills every day - I've been forgetting a lot lately. But, that means I will be done by February 20th... ONE DAY BEFORE MY BIRTHDAY! Woohoo! Now the bad news: the accutane is not acting as well as my d
