  1. Hey guys, I just wanted to post something different on this forum. I have suffered with acne for 6 years, I have literally tried everything possible and through those six years I have experienced an array of emotions. I have been angry, sad, lonely, depressed, and insecure. I'm not going to tell you that I am at my optimum confidence level or that I even love myself now or more. It seems like people promote that they love themselves after they make their flaws disappear, but that's not always
  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. Sometimes I think it's a payback of my previous evil living style. I used to sleep really late, due to my work and also my habit for ages. Had only 2 to 3 glasses of water daily. Ate any rubbish I wanted and ate a lot. Almost zero exercise. Lazy as hell, bought my second hand skateboard at a really tempting price almost one year ago but just used it once. But I was health enough and even ppl told me that I was too active sometimes. I thought I was just lucky. Acne did bring me unexpectedly no
  4. Does anyone else experience a warped mental perception of their skin? I feel the amount of over analysing, pore scanning and obsessing that I have done over the last few years has done some damage to my mental image of myself. Even when I am having a relatively good skin day, when I imagine myself and how I look - I see my skin as red, scarred and disgusting. I think learning to self-love is a really important step in healing from the psychological effects of acne, but sometimes that can be
  5. I won't detail my full acne history here and save that for another thread. I started using myo-Inositol from a health food store, and my skin cleared quickly and dramatically. It cleared on my back, my face, and my chest, even most of my blackheads were gone. At the time I was using many other supplements, I was exercising and adhering to my personal acne diet (no soy, low sugar, emphasize vegetables, etc) so I was unsure of how much Inositol really contributed to the improvement.

    Losing hope

    I am a 21year old male taking 60mg accutane daily. I've been taking it for five months. I weigh about 60kg. Unfortunately I am still getting spots on my face and neck- I really thought that, by now, I'd be clear. A little more detail: I started off on 20mg for a month. Then moved up to 40mg but had a HORRIBLE breakout- by far the worst I've had in 5 years of acne. I should say I don't react well to medication at all, I'm rather sickly. My derm put me on predinose and steroid gel to calm it dow

    Day 30 - I feel good (:

    Don't get me wrong, I'm still breaking out a bit. But its definitely better than 2-3 days ago. I feel a lot better today. I was almost dreading seeing my man this weekend because of how my skin looked and hoping so badly that it would heal / look better by the time I see him, and I think that will be the case. I don't get to see my doc for another 4 hours, so I get to starve (fast) all day, woohoo. I keep reaching for food and have to remind myself not to eat XD. Will try to schedule next appt i

    Day 44

    I dont think anything is going on. My chin and around my mouth area looks horrible.My left cheek is still awful. I dont look good basically but its okay because im going home on friday to sunday and hopefully will feel more relaxed. My mental health is a lot better. Such an annoyance though. I think bad skin is the worse thing ever and it really effects your self-confidence more than people can imagine. Anyway update on specifics Forehead: very spotty but flatter than before Left Cheek: a b
  9. So I haven't posted on here for a good while. Im 24 now and when I was 19 I started to develop severe acne that progressed from mild. Iv'e pretty much lost all that I can think of in my life and then some because of it all - jobs, friends, relationships, family - my future. I did get my skin to a manageable point about 2 years ago on Dan Kern's regime and have been using his products the past 2 years however they slowly started to lose their effect and my skin just tolerated it more and more.

    How acne has ruined my life

    I'm now 20 years old and acne has been a part of my life since I can remember. I have had it all through high school and I am now just starting to feel the impacts. I honestly can't remember the last time I felt confident and happy with no makeup on. I have hated my natural face for years and it is now taking its toll on me. I started partying hard in grade 11. I was a wild teenager and I loved being able to let loose, forget about all my worries, get drunk and have fun. I have been partying
