  1. So, I love Tracy from The Love Vitamin blog. Been reading her posts for years! And she is finally cure! She describes it here Her happy and clear! Watch her videos! They make you feel so happy! http://www.thelovevitamin.com/10707/complete-acne-freedom/ How she cleared it! http://www.thelovevitamin.com/6855/treat-female-hormonal-acne/ I'm so happy for her! I just ordered some vitex, burdock, and milk thistle! I'm so excited! You know what! I'm going to go to Tobago with my boy
  2. I am a 23 year old male who has had mild/moderate acne over the last 3 years. Made it all through high school with the occasional stress pimple and such and started off college great. During my sophmore year things changed. I got acne all over my face. I had never had it before like this and it was very sudden as in a few months it all showed up. It got to the point where I would only go to class and track practice and that was it. I was originally put on minocycline, trentinion cream and ben
  3. Hi all, In October 2017, after >15 years of antibiotics, contraceptive pills, topical treatment and a few dietary approaches I stormed into my doctors office and refused to leave before I was prescribed roaccutane. A colleague of mine had just said my shoulder would look like a "moon crater" which gave me the last push. I was breaking out every month around the start of my period, the scar tissue on my face and back worsened considerably over the years and there was no other cure in sight. H
  4. Hi! Do you recommend this regimen even if I don't have severe acne, just some occasional breakouts? I'm mainly struggling with hyperpigmentation, but I really would like to completely clear out my skin first. I'm scared it will dry out my skin and do more harm than good though... perhaps I can use it only in the evening paying a lot of attention to the dosage. Please help me if you can, an answer would mean a lot to me! Thank you in advance xx

  7. Hey guys! So first of all I have a little confession that I'd like to make. I'm already on day 40 of my Accutane journey so basically I'm going to start off this log with a basic summary about myself and of how the past 40 days have gone and then I will be regularly updating this log every couple of days, starting from today. Now for a little background info of myself. I'm an 18 year old Canadian male that has been suffering from mild/moderate acne since I was around 13-14 years old. But on top
  8. I am a 16 year old female that has battled with all-around acne since 7th grade (blackheads, whiteheads, cysts, etc). I would probably consider my face either oily or combination skin because I get really oily in my T-zone but sometimes I get dry skin around my lower cheeks, chin, and mouth. I'd consider my acne to be mild-moderate because I have quit a few small pimples with no heads on my forehead, a few with heads, probably around one cyst every two months (small cysts), blackheads ALL on my
  9. Hey everyone!!I've had moderate acne for the past 4 years and after endless medications and prescriptions I have built up the courage to go on Accutane! I've read so so many threads and logs and so many people have had great results! For the past 3 months this summer my acne took a turn for the worst after I got bronchitis and had to take a lot of medication (i thought antibiotics would help me??). Anyway, I've been even more depressed than usual and I barely leave the house so I don't pigment m
  10. Hi to whoever is reading this. I am a 22 year old female who has been battling acne since the age of 13. My acne was only on my forehead and my back until I reached the age of 15, at which point it spread to my cheeks. After high school, it spread to all areas of my face, back and chest. However, the acne on my face has always been pretty "mild", while my back acne was moderate. Even though I technically have mild acne, it is extremely persistent and never fully goes away. It also scars my face
  11. I am going to visit a dermatologist in a week, my skin is very oily, my acne is very persistent but not so severe. I already emailed the dermatologist he said he would start me on accutane after some examinations and blood tests. I was wondering if MEDICAID covers the cost of accutane, even the generic brands also.
  12. I started to notably break out towards the summer before my senior year of high on my forehead and cheeks. I would get inflamed pimples on my cheeks and sometimes relatively small cysts or nodules (not sure which) on the cheeks and in between my eyes. I also got some non inflamed ones on my forehead and temples. I was using drug store products (including a scrub which really stripped my skin and made it worse I think) but it definitely was not working. I think my acne was still considered mild
  13. im 27 year old girl and my acne is mild to moderate at times - hormonal i think, but I am really tired of having bad skin at my age. My dermatologist has given me a prescription for very low dose of Roaccutane (10mg) to take but i am really reluctant to do this after lots of research , since there seem to be so many side effects some apparently which can stay with you forever. in any case my acne is thankfully not as bad as a lot of people's but it does really get me down at my age to always ha
  14. Trying to decide if my 13 yr old daughter, who has 1 out of 10 scale acne, should start the regimen to help control and stop acne from starting? Or do you have to wait for it to become a problem? Will starting the regimen hurt more than help? Not a topic I've seen before, any help appreciated.
  15. If you've done some reading on the treatments available for scarring, you probably would have come across horror stories; especially from laser. After all, its just nature to overestimate the odds of dreadful but infrequent events. And I'm ultimately, not rewarded for not taking any action. Somewhere in April, I've tried out dermarolling; which I'd seen slow but substantial results from. Strengthened by newer advances in technology, I'm glad that I've finally took the first step to solve my prim
  16. I know nothing about acne. I just know that I've had all of these scars for 2 years now. Oh, and definitely they've improved since then but I'm graduating high school this year and while I don't mind the scarring now I absolutely do not want them for college. Can anyone give me any advise about these things?
  17. Hello! For the last 3 years or so I have searched online for answers about why my skin was so red. Could it be from my acne? Could I have rosacea before I was even 30? Would it ever go away? Who else had this kind of redness that I did? I am here to post my progress, and maybe be of some kind of reference or guidance to someone else who is searching for answers, sees my skin, and can relate. I had always had some kind of acne since I was about 11. I never did NOT have some kind of blemish on my
  18. My prom is in a few weeks and I'm having a mental breakdown. Does anyone know what kind of acne this is and how I can cure it?? My face is always extremely dry also, so all I can do is rinse my face off with water. I'm not able to use any cleansers.
  19. Early last year, I spent about 4 months on Roaccutane and it was a miracle cure! But back in October my skin started to have very minor break outs, so I went back to my Derm about 2 weeks ago and she prescribed me Epiduo. I was just wondering whether after the first 3 months, if I won't have to apply it to my skin anymore or whether it's something I will have to be using for a few years to come. Ideally, I'd love to have it over and done with in 3 months, but obviously I can't decide on what my
  20. Hello, three weeks ago I went to my doctor for my mild acne, and acne scars (I have many blackheads on my nose, large pores, and shiny skin too). At that time I only had maybe 4 spots, and a whole lot of red marks from past acne. My doctor said my scars weren't deep, and they will go away with time. He then said he was going to prescribe me Retin A. He told me to wash my face with an acne cleanser, and use the Retin A .1% medication everyday. I recently bought the Cetaphil Daily Facial cleanser,
  21. hey guys, im an 18 yr old male and i have mild acne...most of my pimples are on my forehead and beside the eyebrows...and in my opinion i don't see them as severe..., I've tried benzoyl peroxide but they always don't do the job and leave dark patches after the acne. i cleanse, exfoliate and moisturize.... I'm thinking about accutane but do you guys know of any better or less strong treatments for mild-moderate acne? thanks
  22. Hello everyone, First of all, I'm sorry if this topic has already been addressed before. I've tried the search feature and it didn't help me too much. I'm 22 and I can say I've had moderate/mild acne since I'm about 14. Apart from getting a tube of 5% BP and applying it on active pimples twice a day, I haven't done anything special about my acne. I'm lazy, and it's also that my acne hasn't been that much of a problem to me. Not that it wouldn't bother me, but it's not severe enough to use
  23. So.. what do you think? Mild, moderate, severe, and which types of acne?
