  1. I’ve been using the acene.org regimen for more then 5 months now, I’ve recently purchased the AHA+. How is this used? I’d like to use it as an all over the face treatment, do I wash it off after? Is it a leave in treatment? How is it used???
  2. If I am only using the benzoyl peroxide on certain areas of my face, do I do the same with aha? For instance I am not putting the BP on my forehead at all , will I be putting the aha on my forehead once I start using it?
  3. i already have a problem with picking at my skin unintentionally, and yesterday i tried taking a bobby pin and using it to pop my black heads, my skin was clear besides a few pimples and black heads on my nose. so i took the bobby pin and all i know was that i started popping them at 4am and ended at 3pm (a long time), and my skin was really red and my pores were huge, which i'm guessing is from me scraping at my skin to get the blackheads out. i took a shower after and my face looked really bad
  4. I have combination skin, (oily in t-zone and dry on cheeks) I exfoliate twice a day, is that to much? my skin is so oily and even after applying an oil-free moisturiser after exfoliating ( I heard oily skin is due to over-excessively dry skin ) hence the moisturiser. I'm going to cut back to exfoliating once a day in the evening but what do I use in the morning?!?! I dont know wether I should buy a cleanser but I have no idea if that helps and what even is it? I would really appreciate some advi
  5. Hi, I'm an 18 year old male, and up until a year ago, I had flawless skin. Acne was an issue, that I never imagined I'd have to deal with. I have a simple question about Dairy. My diet, has never really been healthy, but it's never really been unhealthy either, and milk, up until a year ago, did nothing but make me happy. I've read many internet threads about how avoiding milk can significantly clear your skin and that understanding the inner issue and the personal problems inside your body that
  6. Hi. So I haven't posted anything on this forum in quite awhile because I haven't really needed to. HISTORY: I began getting mild acne around 3 years ago, mostly just whiteheads. Over the course of 2 years my acne got irritated and discolored. I wasn't happy. So let's start with around 2 years ago. I first started using Benzoyl Peroxide 0.1% for my acne in the fall of 2011. Though my acne started to subside, nothing drastically changed. In March of 2012 I decided to try the Acne.org Regimen.
  7. So lately I've been really interested in organic skincare. I don't know why. My whole motto about skincare is, "If it's working, why change it?" or "If it's not broken, don't fix it".... But is it really working? I was looking through my pile of what I call "skincare" products, which are basically a bunch of chemicals, and honestly, I thought I knew what ingredients to avoid but I don't think I know the half of it. I can't tell you ANYTHING about 98% of the ingredients in my products. None. Now
  8. Does anyone know if the regimen help with acne scars at all?
  9. Here are pictures- IT KEEPS GETTING WORSE!!! UGH I don't know what to do. I am 3 weeks into Tazorac so is this the worst of it? Ever since I started trying to make my skin better it only has been getting worse. Something I did notice that idk if I wrote about yet- The side of my face that I sleep on is the side with more acne. I have always slept on this side- why is is only starting to cause problems right now? Also- at what time do I re-evaluate what I am doing? At what point can I give up or
  10. I have spent a lot of time in the ocean this past week. I have been assuming that the salt water is why my face has stung so much, but I came across some articles and stuff which make me think otherwise. I learned that Tazorac has an initial breakout period. I think that is why my skin has gotten so bad and so painful. Judging from reviews, it should get better around weeks 5 or 6... and then it takes a few months to get full better. If you use Tazorac, I have a question for you: If you stop us
  11. I just started on the Body Acne Regimen, and I'm wondering how often to do it. I assume once a day, but I haven't found anything concrete on the site. How often are you supposed to use it for best results? Does it make a noticeable difference using it more/less frequently? Thanks, K
  12. Hi ! I'm using the regimen since 6 weeks! I'm using extra AHA+ since 1 week and my skin peels off a looot... Is it normal ? I've got some breakouts (arround the mouth mainly..) and i'm used to use tea tree oil, Is this oil compatible with the moisturizer ? I hope soo!
  13. I've only been using the regimen for a week now but I've noticed that my skin pigmentation has gotten much darker where my neck is a much lighter skin tone than my face. I think it might be the moisturizer due to its tint but I'm not sure. Is anyone else having this problem? Even the skin around my mouth where i don't usually point the moisturizer to make sure it doesn't get on my lips or in my mouth is visibly a lighter colour than the rest of my face. I don't know if this is supposed to ha
  14. I'm writing this post so that I can keep track of my progress and begin my attempt on the caveman regimen. I've never had acne my entire life. I'm 19 and I never struggled with acne ever, I would get compliments constantly on my effortless, flawless skin constantly. In February of this year I had my first ever break out and freaked the hell out, I didn't understand what was going on... When I look back now I actually only got my first ever pimple, it was so tiny and completely unnoticeable but i
  15. Is it true or "normal" that after first time you dermaroll your scars can look worse(maybe deeper) or maybe new small scars can apears? because the dermaroller removes upper layers of the skin each time?? and then some scars can/could hide under the surface you never seen before, but they have always been there just not that eye-catching?? (for others than you of course) Is that the dermaroller's "thing" to nice and easy remove the upper layers of the skin and with the time, make the scars equa
  16. Hello! I’ve been considering asking my doctor for Accutane. I’ve been using Epiduo/Tactuo for about 2 years now with mild to no success. My acne is still present and very painful. I have very oily skin. 7 months ago my doctor recommended I take birth control pills to see if it will make a difference and I haven’t noticed anything. I know there are a lot of risks involved with Accutane. I like going to the beach in the summer and getting my eyebrows waxed so I’ll probably ha
  17. I assume so but just wanted to make sure that that's who to go to. (I used to have a dermatologist but he's not practicing anymore so I'll have to find a new one). I have a lot of ice pick scars that I'd love to get rid of and my last dermatologist told me they were very mild so don't worry about it until my skin is totally clear. My skin is pretty clear now other than a few breakouts here and there but I'm still left with these scars.
  18. Hi everyone! I was wondering if epiduo can replace straight benzoyl peroxide...epiduo has 2.5% benzoyl peroxide and .1% adapalene.
  19. If you drink while on accutane would it show up in the blood tests? Also what are the long term effects of drinking on accutane. Thanks
  20. Hi! To start, today is Tuesday Sept. 1, and my first day of Epuris (Isotretinoin) will be Thursday Sept. 4. I am starting school tomorrow in a new city, which means I have no friends right now! I know I can't wear makeup on Epuris because of the sensitivity of my skin. Honestly, if I didn't have acne I wouldn't wear makeup. I won't once my skin has cleared. But for know, I need help with having the confidence to go bare faced to school tomorrow while trying to make friends! Thank you in advance
  21. Hi All, I've read through some of the forums but this is my first post and I have a few questions I'm hoping somebody will be able to answer. I'm currently a few days over 2 months into the regimen. I started with mild/moderate acne and wIthin the first week, my skin was clearer than it had been in 3 years, almost completely clear. That didn't last long and I've been breaking out ever since. I'm currently no better than when I started, if not worse. Loosing hope unfortunately. Becasu
  22. Okay so this is my first time asking people for advice on my acne a answer would be highly appreciated. Okay so about a month ago i seriously noticed some acne on the cheeks but its just redness under not really pimples popping out. I used to instantly pop a pimple once i noticed one but then learned that, that is one of the worst things to do. So i stopped, i changed my diet insanely too, i used to go through a whole bag of dorito chips and still be ready for more. But now i only ever eat whole
  23. Hi There, I started Accutane back in September. I didn't go on birth control for health concern's which my doctor know's of. my period's been irregular all my life, sometime's 2-3 month's late. I took accutane September-December (4 month's) and didn't get my period at all. I have been sexually active but I've used protection and taken regular pregnancy test's, no sign's of symptom's of pregnancy. I've been done accutane for about a month, and still no period. I've had usual period symptom's bu
  24. 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?
  25. Hi everyone. I had one indented scar and then recently a pimple came up right over it. I refused to pop it so it's healing kind of weird but does anyone know what's going to happen? Will it make it deeper or?? Please help I'm so confused. Thank you!
