  1. Adren077

    Day 2

    Yesterday I followed everything exactly as the day before except I wore makeup during the day. I'm glad to say that my face has not worsened, in fact I think my blackheads are less noticeable and my complexion looks slightly less bumpy. My skin feels clean even when I wake up which is strange because normally it's extremely oily. The only thing I can complain about is how long it takes at night and the smell of my toner, but if it works it's totally worth it. I will update tomorrow and from then
  2. Adren077

    Day 1

    Yesterday I started my new skin care plan. In the morning I put raw honey on my face and let it sit for like three minutes. I then take a hot wash cloth and lay it on my face then wash the honey off. I found that this leaves my face feeling great. It feels soft and not oily at all which is surprising for me because I have really oily skin. After all the honey is off my skin, I pat my face dry and apply my apple cider vinegar toner. At night I did the oil cleansing method with grapeseed o
  3. Today is my fifth day taking Accutane, and my face has definitely developed a few more blemishes. Really haven't experienced any side effects, although my lips are a tad bit dry. I will also add that my face is feeling VERY oily right now, but I have been reading that is usually pretty common when you first start your treatment. It just feels very weird because my skin is never very oily, usually more on the dry side. Oh Well. No initial breakout so far that has been too bad, like I mentione
  4. So I am done with week 3 and going in week 4 already ! time is passing by so fast which is a good thing while on roaccutane . So sadly I am in the bad phase now, the past week I had break outs and it seems like acne are taking longer to heal (or at least to puff down). The past week my nose was very bumpy and rough, it seems like the blackheads on my nose are coming out which made the texture of my nose very rough and weird. Even though I know I am not suppose to do any scrubbing while on ro
  5. It's the very beginning of week five and holy crap, my skin is so clear! There are still a few tiny scabs and red dots where some blemishes are still healing but I don't have any active pimples. My skin tone is very even as well, and I've noticed that I have almost zero clogged pores! That's such a miracle to me because in the past even when my skin was perfectly clear, I always had clogged pores in my problem areas. This is such a relief to me because now when my skin clears up it won't breakou
  6. Well, I never thought that I would be posting on an acne forum...but here I am. Overview: I have had really horrible back acne for the past 3 years. I was prescribed tretinoin cream for it when it began, this always cleared it up within a month or 2. However, my current doctor decided not to prescribe me the cream and instead gave me clindamycin lotion. This didn't help (she didn't mention that I should also use BP with it...). So after a month of doing that, she put me on doxycycline. I ha
  7. 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
  8. I’m a 25 yesr old female with mild acne and sebhorreic dermatitis. I just started a course of accutane 20 mg a day. I’m very scared, everytime i take the pill I get anxious and want to vomit because I think I’m damging my body and my skin and isotret is only going to make things worse for me, but apparently they gave it to me because nothing else seema to qork, but I come here and all I read is people saying how it ruined their lifes and their skin and how horrible it is and maybe my skin isnt t
  9. So I was almost clear, literally 2 pimples away. My usual 2% salicylic acid wasn't working, so I decided to try benzoyl peroxide. I had tried it before with 5% and it had no result so I got 10% this time. It got rid of the pimples I wanted it to, but now I'm breaking out in a bunch of tiny ones on the left side of my forehead! There are also ab few big ones that are almost the size of mosquito bites! School starts again in 3 days! How do I get rid of this??
  10. I see a lot of posts on here from accutane users but I've noticed they all are from people with more moderate/severe acne. I figured as someone currently on accutane for mild acne i'd make one to talk about what my experience is like, maybe to help another user like me. Before anyone freaks out about me being on it for mild acne, let me explain myself. I've had mild but persistent acne since I was around 11 or 12. I started going on topical and oral meds when I was 14 but nothing really hel
  11. Beginning of second day of use of Azelaic acid (began with first application previous night) and I thought I'd stick with a log of general behaviours that may affect my skin as well. Skin: Moderate amount of papules (10-12) on forehead and temples and a cluster of small pustules above one eyebrow. Small number of papules on rest of face, with two pustules on upper lip. Skin is quite bad, having been nearly clear aside from 1 pustule and a couple whiteheads a week ago. Morning after using the
  12. Right now i have about 7 active pimples. The one on back doesn't hurt anymore and it seems smaller. I'm still waiting for the bump on my right cheek to pop and disappear. Today i got a pimple on my forehead and two on the right cheek. One of them is a bit bigger and I'm not sure but it might be cystic. That made me sad because i thought my skin was looking better but now it seems like I'm "finally" facing the initial breakout. I'm not even sure if it's the accutane or the stress or the period bu
  13. Acne: - right cheek: the new cyst, the whitehead (that I popped) on my upper lip. I popped the old cyst and it finally flattened but it will obviously left a permanent scar. Do I regret it? Yes and no. I only regret it, because I am going to have another scar - left cheek: whiteheads, a cyst, scarring and redness from previous acne Skin: even more dry on hands Side effects: nothing new Mood: still the same
  14. I woke up with 3 new active acne (with white caps). My pores are opening. I ran my nail down my nose and everything came out. I felt a bit sad today. It's not because of the pills yet I think. I also got very tired and slept through the whole day. The skin around my lips got a bit dry but nothing big.
  15. Hi everyone! I've been lurking these message boards for a while but this is my first post here. I am a 19 year old girl and have gone almost my whole life with PERFECT skin. However, within the past 1-2 years my skin has progressively gotten worse. Most would still consider it to be mild- my main problem is TONS of small little closed comedones/blackheads. They give my skin a terrible texture and look really bad especially in certain lighting. I also get red somewhat inflamed bumps along my lowe
  16. Just an early warning, please excuse any misspelling or minor grammatical errors. English isn't my native tounge and this post is written in a emotional tired induced frenzy. Hey everyone, I've been keeping a watch on this forum from time to time checking threads for possible solutions to acne outbreaks and just to find some comfort in knowing that I'm not alone one out there who knows the struggle. I'm at the age of 21, male and have been in warfare with acne since the age of 14. Since
  17. Hi I need advice from anyone who has ever used Low-Ogestrel 28 for acne. Does it work, or is the estrogen content too low for it to have an effect? I've been using it more or less consistently for about 2 and a half years but it has made a minimal impact on my face.
  18. I was put on accutane for quite mild acne. I got acne maybe 2.5 years ago. I was 21 when I first began getting it. It was usually mild (easy to cover up most of the time). Sometimes I'd have a bad break out and it would be moderate for a month. It was still annoying enough for me to return back to the doctor every few months to try another prescription. what I've been on in the last 2.5 years (in order) - tactuopump (topical) - minocycline (antibiotic) - Diane-35 (birth control)
  19. Hello. I am new to this community, but I wanted to speak to people in the same position as me. None of my close friends have moderate acne like me so I feel all alone. My first breakout was when I turned thirteen years old, and it hasn't stopped since then (I am now 22 years old). Back in grade 11 I started using Benzaclin and Differin prescribed by my dermatologist and my pimples decreased drastically. However, I still get frequent breakouts, especially around my period, not to mention all the
  20. So ive been working on BP 2.5% on my clogged pores and its working well so far. When i procceeded to buy another tube, theres no stock on BP 2.5% Can i switch up to BP 5%? I currently have no side effects on BP 2.5%.
  21. Hi everyone, I have been dealing with this problem for months now ever since using Grapeseed oil. I always have acne prone skin prone to clogged pores, however i went clear after pregnancy and treating them using just carrot health soap and .25% tretinoin liquid. I get a few spots here and there prior to my menstruation but not the clogged pores on my forehead cheeks and chin have subsided. After using grapeseed oil last September, my face was a mess. I though it was purging, but the clogged
  22. So as you may have seen from earlier posts, I attempted the caveman regimen after coming off of benzoyl peroxide as a way of detoxing the damage that the chemical caused to my skin. My skin was very very very oily as a result of using BP, so I thought I'd give the caveman regimen a try as I'd heard of it helping oily skin. So that was nearly 3 months ago. About 2 months in, I discovered the oiliness had subsided but now completely. Although my skin had almost completely cleared of acne itself,
  23. Hi there. I just started Sprintec birth control (generic of ortho cyclen) about 2 weeks ago. Also, I've been using epiduo for a little over two months now. I am a teenage girl with mild to moderate acne on my chin, middle checks, and a spot or two on my forehead. I used epiduo last year and cleared in 3 months (along with doxy) but became resistant and took a 5 month break. Now I'm still experiencing breakouts and not seeing much improvement in my skin. Birth control was my last hope because I d
  24. hi everyone! Today is the day I began accutane and I am keeping a daily log to keep track of my progress! I am a 19 year old girl, weigh 110 pounds, and am taking 40mg of zenatane a day. My acne would be described as mild, but i suffer from many clogged pores and blackheads with some whiteheads also that leave hyperpigmentation. I used to have PERFECT skin 1-2 years ago, so it has taken a huge toll on my confidence and self-esteem. I'm so excited to feel the way i used to and not have t
  25. hello everyone this is my first ever post as i just signed up for some guidance.. i would say i have fairly mild acne, its not alot in any one area its just spaced out over my face so its not cystic and i dont very often have white heads on my face which is good, although i constantly have blackheads on my nose that are only really noticeable up close. okay so heres my story ive had acne since i was around 15 (im now 20) the severeness has changed a few times.. in june 2012 i suffered a bra
