  1. So having oily skin, my first question is, is this really right for me? Is it good to just leave the oil on my skin without washing? Wouldn't that cause problems? I've read about people who have oily skin and had success with the routine, but I'm still a little worried. That's why I've been gently cleansing here and there. I definitely like the less is more approach. I don't know if I'm comfortable with doing nothing. Could using a gentle cleanser at night and rinsing with water in the morning b

    Week 5 Of Spiro

    Hey guys so this hasn't been a good week for me! I've been under a lot of stress, have a major exam coming up in a few days and a whole lot else going on. And I feel like it is taking a toll on my skin. I've broken out quite a bit in the last week and a half. My skin has really dried out, but I feel like its dried out too much and my body is reacting by producing oil. So it looks slightly flaky but shiny. I'm still trying to figure out how to work around this. My forehead was clearing u
  3. My dosage has been upped to 60 mg per day, so two 30 mg tablets each day! I'm super excited to up my dosage because I just want to get better as soon as possible! My skin is still dry and my lips still chapped, but other than that not really noticing any other side effects. Excited to see what 60 mg will bring! Not so many pimples are popping up as well, which is making me notice my scars a whole lot more. So that sucks, but hey, hopefully new ones will stop forming! Does anyone know good s

    I have been on accutane for 3 days now but first I wanted to make an introduction about my acne. here we go! I am a 17 year old female and have been struggling with face and back acne for 3 years. I have very oily skin. My acne began when I was 14 years old. It wasn't too unbearable at first. I had a few pimples on my forehead and around my nose. Never anywhere else on my face. But after a couple months my skin grew worse and became very oily. Products from the drugstore were not helping
  5.

And can green tea really helps with the skin?? is the brand lipton okay??
  6. Most people out there have acne that's nice enough to dry up on its own with or without acne treatment. A couple of years ago, I just started getting these ridiculously stubborn clogged pores that will never go away no matter what I put on my skin. Also, nothing can prevent them from forming. They are extremely deep and they become inflamed spontaneously. The plugs that I get are huge, solid plugs that are like splinters. People tell me not to squeeze them but if I don't squeeze them out, they w
  7. I finally feel I am in a place comfortable with my skin, take what you wish and what’s helpful for you. to clarify, ( I may get one pimple a month?) I’ll cut straight to what helped me, I have very dry skin and then sometimes it’s very oily. St Ives Blemish control (wash face once a day at night) do NOT put a lot on your face. If your face feels dry afterwards, you have put on way to much. my moisturizer is Aloe Vera, (this is when I really experienced a huge difference in my skin. My gue
  8. i am 17 years old and i have had acne since i was about 13 or 14. when i was 14 my acne got so bad to the point where my mom took me to a dermatologist and i was prescribed a gel with benzoyl peroxide and a face wash as well. that did nothing to my skin, in fact it made it worse so i stopped. when i was 16, i found the perfect routine and my skin was CLEAR for 5 months. i used african black soap and jojoba oil, and exfoliated with a mix of honey and brown sugar every week. in august, it wasn
  9. Hi all, I am over 40 years old and not even in my teenage years have I ever had acne problems. And now, for the last 4-5 months, this!! I have tried changing my diet, consuming more water daily, moisturizer, daily face wash, clearasil etc etc but nothing seem to work. Everyday there seems to be a new one and the healing ones seem to leave a mark on my face. For some reason, they are all concentrated on my cheekbones but on both sides of my face. I really don’t have any experience with this, so
  10. Hi there, I'm a 32 year old female and long term sufferer of acne. Roughly 6 months ago my doc switched my medication to epiduo (I'm a long term bpo user) and while I don't think that it's a terrible product I've been experiencing a side effect that I could hardly find anywhere on the web related to this product. Epiduo makes my skin super oily. In fact it's so greasy that I have to blot several times a day even when using mineral makeup. I am 100% certain is due to Epiduo because i quit it
  11. Hello everybody, Firstly i apologize for my bad english because it's not my language. I'm a man, 29 years old and i have a extremely very very ......oily skin. Many of you will recognize, after wah my face maybe 20 30 minutes sebum makes it appaerance on my face and i am obliged to dab my face several times a day with a tissue for exemple. Psychologically it's using, it's hard to live... I try several things like oil jojoba drink water retinoids (differine, locacid)...but not improvement
  12. I've gotten small bumps all over my forehead and I have a lot of blackheads on my cheeks. I have oily skin, and I wash my face twice a day and follow up with a light mosturizer. I've stayed clear of makeup for 2 weeks and if anything, my skin got worse. I've been eating healthy, staying away from greasy and unhealthy foods and my skin looks the same. Nothing is working and it's getting worse. I feel so insecure
  13. Hey Guys, i have terrible acne on my right cheek and I dont know why? can you guys tell me what type of acne I have and how I can treat it. It makes me feel so ugly & I cant afford to see a Dermatologist. Thank you
  14. how do u guys stop obsessing over your acne and letting it rule your life? It seams to be all I think about...i just want to forget. How do i stop it getting me so down. ? Love to all suffering
  15. Hey guys, I really want to crete a conversation about life after acne (once you cure/temporary fix your acne). This is a topic that is not discussed a lot and i think its important. I have been acne free for 1 year and i no longer have any pigmentation either. I no longer find the need to wear makeup, and i never worry about my skin anymore. I remember when i had acne i was self-conscious and i would tell myself "when i have clear skin i will have no worries." The truth is yes you may not

    My regimen log

    Hi, I'm Lindsay, I'm 28 and I've had acne for about six years. I had amazing skin when I was a teenager, but it all went to shit when I stopped taking the pill. When I was 22, I found out I had a blood clotting issue and my dr told me not to take oral contraceptives. I came off the pill and started getting spots almost immediately. I'm lucky because my acne is mild, but I get huge, painful cysts on my chin a couple of times a month (usually around my period). They tend to stay beneath the
  17. Right, you're going to have to forgive me for this essay but I really need advice and I think it's best if I just give you all the facts. I'm male, I'm 23 and I've been suffering from extremely oily/spot prone skin for about 10 years now. I've more or less given in to the fact that I'll probably have oily skin for most, if not all, of my life. I understand there's no miracle cure but it's got to the point where the state of my face has shattered all of my confidence and is having a severely nega

    I suffer from VERY oily skin

    Hello, I suffered from terrible acne for many years but have since out grown it... sorta... I have been left with VERY oily skin that is impossible to stop, or even hide... I blot with oil-absorbing sheets about 3-5 times an hour, use mattefying gel and it all seems to do NOTHING. I've tried a million home remedies, mega dosing on pills, fish oils, all kinds of crazy things with NO SUCCESS. Anyways, I've heard about Sodium Sulfacetamide and Sulfur, supposedly great for oil control etc etc so
  21. well i started accutane last saturday 31st jan! i have mild acne.the spots i i get are mainly on the chin and i occasionally get an odd spot in other places elsewhere.i dont get cysts or anthing like that.the main reason i went on accuatane is cos all the other stuff i tried didnt work and my acne was persistent.i just wanted to be clear so i thought fuck it ill go for it! ok im on my 6th day of accutane.i have noticed no side effects whatsoever (touch wood)! cant believe it ive not got dry
  22. I started using Dan's Regimen and gradually progressed towards the acne cure. Right now I do everything in the acne cure process except moisturize. My skin is very oily and even after BP and Glycolic treatments it doesn't dry out. In fact if I use a moisturizer (especially one with any SPF protection) my skin actually seems more oily. The cure is seemingly flushing out my face and clearing my complexion, as I don't get any "deep" pimples. However, I still get a good deal of blackheads and tiny w
  23. Hi everyone I have some questions regarding a regimen that i am putting together. I ordered and i am still waiting for the mandelic acid, i haven't tried anything on my face yet but i started with the cider vinegar 3 days ago and it feels really good.I leave the vinegar on in the morning and at night. My question is, can i use the vinegar and then apply the mandelic acid on top of that and leave both on?My skin is a bit sentitive and the scars i am trying to minimize are the rolling typ
