  1. Hi there. I've signed up for an account here to vent more than anything else, and perhaps find some support if there's anyone else in a similar situation. I'm female, and I've had mild/moderate acne since I was 14. It's been a part of my life for nearly twenty years now, and yes, I'm SICK of it. I'm sick of not being able to answer the door without make-up, of being afraid to do any watersports with people I know, of worrying about how much of my back is visible in the top I'm wearing. My sc
  2. I've been on Erythromycin for a month and about 2 weeks. Does erythromycin actually clear up acne and how long does it it? 70% of my bacne is covered with acne and just the middle of my chest is. Btw what is cyst acne exactly? I still have under 3 months of erythromycin left but I feel like it's not really working and i'm wondering if i should just get a referral to a dermatologist and maybe get on Accutane.
  3. Hello! I'm 14 years old. My skin is prone to hyperpigmentation. I have lots of acne on my face, but some on my chest also. Any treatments?
  4. Hey guys, I recently discovered my old jojoba oil bottle from 5 to 6 (2012) years ago, left untouched (I did open it to use it a couple times before in the beginning but stopped). It smells the same as before, but a small patch of grey inside at the very bottom. Is there any uses for it (possible to recycle, reuse, like potentially heating it up and storing it elsewhere) , and is it still safe to use?
  5. Many ppl say their oily, and yes they may have a little shine. Unfortunatly I wake up with olive-oil face. 5min after washing my face its shiny. By 1 hour you can cover 2 oil-sheets. By 2 hours you can probably fry some chips... by the afternoon its a complete joke. A side effect of all of this oil is the complete lack of any exfoliation, not even with chemicals, the skin is stuck together like glue. Resulting in, angry red clumped rough skin that shines and ppl think Im sweating and am years ol
  6. Hey! I've been on the regimen for about 3 weeks now. (My skin type is Oily and Mild Acne). For the past few days, the skin is weirder. Every time I cleanse my face with the cleanser and pat dry, my face feels more stiff and rigid. Also, my face looks older. WHY!! HELP!! Psss: the Moderator please dont only answer once and disappear. Would really appreciate constructive feedback. Thank you.
  7. Hi guys! So I'm pretty brand new here. I've been lurking the forums trying to find a solution to my annoying scars, but so far, without success. From what I've read, I've kind of self-diagnosed my scars as hypertrophic (if I'm wrong, by all means, please correct me!) I've had them on my upper back for about 4 maybe 5 years now, and it's such a pain looking for clothes to cover it up during the summer Attached below I have some pictures (let me know if I can take better ones to hel
  8. Hey guys, haven't posted in AGES. And for anyone who may have followed this blog, i apologize. I wanted to wait until i saw some noticeable changes before posting again, then after about a month and a half total, my dosage ran out and there was about a week gap where i was off the tane all together. Then once i saw my derm he boosted me up to 40mg a day, which is twice what i was on before. Finally after being on 40mg for about a month and a week, i can say my breakouts have stopped. So i've pro
  9. hello, my age is 21. i have a deep brown scar on my nose. i fell and hurt my nose when i was a child and it had to be stitched. it's been more than 14 years now. it was hardly noticeable but from an year it's getting darker and more noticeable. is it because i used lemon juice on it? i am not sure but now i need help, i am using mederma right now but do not notice any improvement . please help i don't know what to do.i just want to fade it not lose it because i know it's impossible
  10. Hey guys, I have had these same acne scars on my face for over 2 years now.. What can I do about them? I've tried scarzone, clearasil, I went to the doctor and tried some of the prescription creams, not even slight effect. I have also changed my diet about 6 months ago, cutting off a lot of sweets I used to eat, and eating more fruits veggies and protein. I have light red/pink dent scars on my cheeks, some dark red/black scars between my eye and hairline (both sides), and some really black scars
  11. well im kinda adicted to popping pimples tbh (i do it sanitary as possible) but what if you dont, what happens? where does the white shit goes? does it evaporate or go back into skin? o.o what if this happens? (warning, brace your eyes) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D4pWOfjETeg
  12. Hey guys! DAY 1 I've literally only just found this site after taking my first 30mg dose of accutane and its been insanely helpful in letting me know what to expect, so I thought it was only fair for me to do a log too! I have struggled with acne for about three years now, with many various trips to the doctors and trying loads of different lotions and potions which had no use. I remember I even had one doctor who whenever I went for a checkup shouted at me saying it was my diet and I shouldn'
