  1. Where I live, there are very few doctors that will prescribe accutane. I made my appointment, and of course they initially tried to talk me into another random cleansers/topical/antibiotic. I was prepared this time around with a dermatologist and had armed myself with a list I compiled of ALL things I had done for my acne over the last decade. I was given instructions on what had to be done prior to beginning accutane and off I went. After acquiring hormonal birth control, I was entered into
  2. Hey everyone, i haven't posted for a while, just because there hasn't been a great deal to say. Things have improved since my last (depressing) post, mood wise, not skin wise! My skin is still pretty horrendous, but i am trying to just get on with and not have a breakdown over it. I had weird/ blurred vision for a couple of days but that seems to of subsided now. My lips haven't got dry or chapped yet (hurrah) but they do feel tight whenever my lip balm has worn off. I think because i had read s
  3. My face is finally clear, and I have been using Simple Skin 24 hour Cream but they are discontinuing it. So Sadly I need a new product that wont case me break outs.
  4. Hi, ive been on roaccutane just over a month now, my skin was initially not too bad but I went straight into 40mg dosages which for a slim 16 year old male is a lot. So far it has made my skin worse than ever, both my cheeks are covered in spots. I understand that an initial flare is normal - but surely theres something wrong here? Can someone also tell me which products they recommend? I need a good face wash/moisturiser that will stop my dry peeling skin, but also a lip balm, that will pr
  5. Hello, I'm going to start an accutane / isotretinoin treatment very soon, As this stuff can cause dry skin, I've researched for some skincare products. Here is a list of prodcuts that seemed interesting to use alongside Accutane: > Dramatically Different Moisturizing lotion from Clinique > Yes to Blueberries Ultra Hydrating Body Wash > Aloe Vera Cleansing Milk from De Tuinen (dutch brand) > Lip balm from Burt's Bee Anything else I should consider adding to that list ?
  6. Hi! So recently, about a week ago I received my Real-U products in the mail. I bought the cleanser, control face gel and lite moisturiser. I actually ran across the store on Instagram and saw a ton of reviews of it that were really positive. Now I know why! This stuff really worked for me! Along with adding Doterra Lemon Oil to my water everyday, this has been the only other thing I've changed in my acne routine and my skin has completely cleared! After struggling with hormonal related for YEARS
  7. What products have you guys tried that has faded acne scars? Or you know about? Thanks.
  8. Hey guys..always just been curious about this as there is so much debate whether or not acne products (BP, exfoliators etc..) can cause the skin to become more oily? Does stripping the skin really cause more oil to be produced? Or is it ALL internal... Thoughts?
  9. I have had this one bottle of acne.org BP for around 3-5 months now, and i haven't opened it. I'm running out of the one I am currently using and wondering if this other bottle is still good. Can someone please tell me?
  10. I'm just wondering, as I'm from Australia, and I'm guessing I'm buying from the US, how do they keep the products cool and so they wont, uh, go 'off' or lose their effectiveness? so basically, it won't lose any of it's effectiveness? How long does it usually take to ship + arrive from international shipping?
  11. I am 17 years old and been on Accutane twice. The first round I cleared up pretty well for about 6 to 7 months and started to breakout just as bad as before Accutane. During this time I had used over the counter gentle cleansers and moisturizers but nothing to really treat my acne. I just finished my 2nd round of Accutane in May and Ive noticed that Im already starting to breakout again like the 1st time. Everytime I ask my dermatologist she starts me off with the same products and eventually pu
  12. I'm an Asian 18 yo female with oily/combination skin (one or both of those, not sure actually). My biggest concerns right now are hyperpigmentation and enlarged pores/blackheads (on the nose and t-zone area to either side of the nose). These are the two skin issues I find to be the most difficult to solve. I have a nasty habit of squeezing out my blackheads/pores because they annoy me so much and there doesn't seem to be any other effective methods for getting rid of them. Below is my curre
  13. Do you think it would be better for acne to heal without using so many harsh cleansers/medications/spot treatments? Every time i do, i feel like it just makes my face more red & irritated & sometimes even burns. Is this a bad sign? Should i just leave my face alone & cut down on a lot?
  14. SO....There is this fantastic french soap called Savon De Marseille and i'v been fortunate enough to have discovered this soap thanks to my dad....and i just want to say that i'm honestly in love with it. Iv been using it for my face for a while.. I have combination, acne prone skin and since iv been using it my face has been in the best condition...the soap does not dry you out its actually very moisturizing depending on why type you get. Its not harsh at all and Its vegan, made with olive oil
  15. Ok, so this is a list of the products that have been super effective for me. I use acne.org's cleanser, followed by the treatment of the same brand, then the moisturizer. After the moisturizer, I either use the AHA or bio oil (purcillin oil). I do this morning and night. In the middle of the afternoon, when my face tends to get greasy and yucky, I use a homemade astringent (I just call it a toner). It consists of 1 part APPLE CIDER vinegar, 2 parts cooled green tea, and 1 teaspoon lemon juice.
  16. I have some scars/decolouration of the skin after some pretty bad acne over the past few years. I have been on doxycycline for around 6 months and my acne is starting to clear but I still have these marks from picking skin etc, and I want to know some of the best/quickest ways to remove and fade the colouring and marks and make my skin clear. Any home treatments, products etc will be appreciated and also anything for future prevention. Also if anyone could tell me what the name of the particular
  17. My struggle with cystic acne started about 2 and 1/2 years ago. I spent the past two and a half years working towards finding a routine that worked for me. It felt very disheartening at times because it was a constant break out for 2 years and it was painful and I couldn't find anything that worked. In the beginning I would use very harsh products that had the benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid in every single product. I'm talking my cleansers, my exfoliators, my treatments, my moisturizers. Ev
  18. I've never been one to blog but felt compelled to share my experience on Accutane after reading countless blogs and reviews from others. I feel that other people's stories about being on Accutane has helped me enormously during my own experience with it thus far so I feel it is my duty as a fellow acne suffer to share my story in hopes of helping others who are either starting or contemplating starting the 'tane! First let me give you some background information about my personal struggle wit
  19. Hello again! Some time ago I decided to order the acne.org products and now I have them. I'm gonna start using them today. I don't live in the USA so with the shipping and tax and stuff it cost almost double than what you think it will cost Hopefully I will get some results in a month or so. Bye!
  20. End of day 6 on myorisan. Dosage: Derm wanted me to start with full dosage of 80mg. After reading blogs and research articles, I got too worried about the initial breakout, which most sources say can be diminished by starting at lower dose. So I decided to just do 40mg per day and will decide as I go if I want to increase to 80 mg at 2 or 4 weeks. I weigh 67kg by the way, so 40mg would be about .5mg/kg which is the recommended starting dose. Side effects: No side effects so far as I ca

    DAY 2

    So it's the evening of day 2. I've taken my third tablet about two hours ago, but because I take them so late I'm writing on this kind of a day later so I can give myself the full time to record! sorry if that's confusing haha Last night I took my second pill of Roaccutane (20mg). After a while I got an extremely sore throat (I presume a side effect!) and by the time I was going to bed I was exhausted and very lethargic. I woke up today with this horrible spot on my cheek! It's one of those
  24. First day ever taking Oratane (Accutane). I took Accutane when I lived at home in Canada, but had to come off of it because I couldn't meet the blood test dates due to moving to Australia. Now, I'm back on their version of Accutane, so we'll see where this goes! While on Accutane, I had some progress. I wasn't on it for very long, and I did have the side effects of severe dry lips and flaky, dry facial skin. My hands were moderately dry, but I didn't notice any other side effects besides th
  25. Hey guys! Today marks my two years and a month into The Regimen. I am happy to say that majority of my acne is still under control and I haven't had my skin feel and look as good as it does in a long time. Below are pictures of my current skin situation. No make-up, just freshly cleansed skin. I am healing two acne marks on the left side of my face for now but they are already dried out and flat and I am just dealing with the dark marks with the use of AHA. I thought maybe I'd make this post
