  1. I have licorice extract and green tea extract (both formulated for topical application and product mixing) to help battle the redness benzoyl peroxide causes. I use tretinoin at night but my acne warrants benzoyl peroxide in the morning. Problem: The 2.5% is too harsh on my skin. I've used it for months and it still irritates my skin to an embarassing degree. I think a less % of benzoyl peroxide will take care of what my tretinoin leaves behind. I want to mix the two calming extracts with the be
  2. Hey guys. So I made this account because after two years of struggling with prescription acne meds, nothing has significantly improved. I currently use a Clyndamycin lotion and a .1% Retin-A cream, at day and night respectively. I also use Aczone cream for spot treating, and use a Neutrogena Acne Wash Redness Soothing day and night. However, i still get frequent whiteheads and i have lots of red spots from previous pimples that have not disappeared, especially in the cheek region below the eyes.
  3. (sorry this is so long ><, links to all the products below) Hi, I've been dealing with my acne since the start of college. I live in the city now, which I reckon can't be good for the skin, but there's not much I can deal with lifestyle-wise. It's been three years and my skin is getting worse as time goes on. So here I am trying to piece together a new regime to follow through on and hopefully see results. As for my skin, pictures speak volumes. my forehead: tons, and i mean
  4. Hi all, I've been using clindamycin twice daily (morning and before bed) and retin-a (Trentonin, before bed) once a day, and towards the end of the school day I always seem to get greasy looking and very red looking skin. I understand the greasy looking part, but is there any reason I should be experiencing redness more than TWO months after beginning treatment?

    Redness From Previous Acne

    Ok, So I haven't had any new breakouts for a month, and when I wash my face my skin feels smooth so I know no pimples are there right now. But my cheeks and temples are red/irritated. I am not sure if this is considered scarring or hyperpigmentation, but everytime I wash and moisturize, my face is redder. After 6 hours or so, my face is not as red and has calmed down. I am on my 2nd month of Accutane, but I have had redness for about 6 months, although this is my first month without a breakout i

    Any Advice On Acne?

    Hi all, I have suffered with acne for 2+ years now first it started of severed but after being on a prescribed antibiotic and making a lot of healthy lifestyle changes it went to moderate acne but still has not gone? Still to this day I wake up every morning with the same red scars left and even more white heads over my cheeks and round the mouth area where they are more painful above my lip on the sides of my nose and on my chin. I do not understand why everyday I wake up with a new load of whi
  7. Hey everybody I recently found out that oatmeal significantly clears up my skin. However, anybody else who has used oatmeal before will know that it is very messy. It clogs the sink, sometimes a piece of it gets left in my hair and later on somebody embarrassingly points it out It is also quite impractical for everyday use as sometimes i just cant be bothered to use it at 7am before school when im half awake. I need an alternative to oatmeal, anything natural really as i have SENSITIVE SK

    Not Sure What It Is

    Hi, so since like two years i ago, i started getting these pea sized pimples on my nose, which would pop after 1-2 weeks. I don't remember when but my nose started to turn red like in the picture but maybe you can't see due to the colouring. I have a pimple at the tip of my nose and a region of region around it. Even once the pimple goes i have this patch of red, which i'm not sure if it's inflamed. I've seen a dermatologist and he gave me duac which didn't really help.
  9. Do you share some of the same skin problems as me? So im on minocyclie right now.Started it a week and a half ago and my acne has decreased very much. I only have two active pimples and the rest are either bumps or marks. I wash my face with sea salt morning and night which does make the skin soft and works as a spot treatment. And i moisturize with neutrogena moisturizer. But the skin on my acne prone areas is red, as if it is irritated or sweating. All other areas of my face are clean and fres
  10. Hell y'all! I've read other forums and general advice from The Regimen's website, tips and tricks, etc., but I want to know if anyone out there is able to relate to my specific case in hopes of some beneficial advice. My skin in mainly dry/flakey along my jawline and under my chin, but as of this morning the dryness/flakey skin has progressed to my cheeks and slightly on my forehead. I'm 18 years old, and I have mild-moderate acne. I am on DAY 8 of the Regimen. - Morning: One pump of cl
  11. I use Accutane for severe acne and it's working, but i have these weird red marks left. They don't look like acne scars and my whole face looks red. My derm said it will go away in a few weeks. anyone has some tips? The pictures are not arranged but I'm pretty sure the pics go from bad to a little less bad.
  12. Hi everyone! I am currently on my 5th week of the Acne.org Regimen. I use water to cleanse my face, then use a 2.5% Benzoyl Peroxide and moisturize with 2-3 pumps of Cerave Moisturizing Lotion+Jojoba Oil. My face is starting to really clear up now, but I was outside yesterday and got sunburned. I applied the Regimen as usual last night and this morning but was wondering if this is ok since I am sunburned, or if I should take a day or two off from BP. Thanks for your help!

    Acne Treatment Works!

    Hey guys! I have been shown an awesome acne treatment that works! Some of my friends and I have tried it and it really seems to work! Desitin: a diaper rash ointment This stuff works! You can also use generic diaper rash ointment. -Apply this to you spots or problem areas at night (a little goes a long way) and go to sleep. MAKE SURE TO COVER YOUR PILLOW WITH A TOWEL OR SOMETHING BECAUSE IT WILL COME OFF AND IT DOES NOT WASH OUT IN MY EXPERIENCE. In the morning, wash your face,
  14. I'm 15 with acne thats I would describe as mild and close enough to moderate. I have it pretty much under control with: Day: Cleanse with acne.org cleanser Moisturise with acne.org moisturiser Night: Cleanse with acne.org cleanser use Duac once daily gel Moisturise with acne.org moisturiser I was using isotrexin, when my prescription ran out I stopped using it and I had a pretty bad breakout after a week. My doctor then prescribed me with duac once daily (5% BP, 1% clindamycin

    Help!

    I am a female teen and have been using the acne.org regimen for a little over 5 months. Up until the last month it worked as it said it would, I was completely clear. However, within the last month the benzoyl peroxide has caused extreme redness, dryness and itchiness. I did not change anything, that I am aware of. Because of the extreme discomfort of the benzoyl peroxide, I took a break for about a week. I started using a natural regimen recommended by a women with much knowledge in natural

    So today I'm having a better day !! hallelujah! !! I decided that the differin -even though it's like ,% may be too strong for me..

    Facial Redness Help

    Hi everyone...first time here. I want to know if anyone happens to know why my face is so red. Both pictures are in natural lighting (outside with a bit of sun). Looks quite a bit like a sunburn, but it's lasted for the past... as long as I can remember? Yes I wear sunscreen outside. Some symptoms seem incredibly similar to rosacea, my mother will not take me to a dermatologist so I'm relying completely on you guys. It's all over my face, become harder to see at around 5 ft distance. I wash my f

    Redness, Rash

    I've been on DK's treatment for almost 2 weeks, applying the cream twice a day. I'm seeing improvement however, I'm developing a large red rash on the affected areas. It's very dry, flakey and sometimes has a burning/stinging sensation after I apply Cetaphil and/or Alpha Hydrox Enhanced Lotion. Is this normal? Should I drop to once a day? I was using DK's moisturizer before however this did not prevent redness. Thanks!
  19. I was using a honey and lemon juice mask and my skin seemed to be improving slowly. I added oatmeal to the mask because of the positive things people say about it. My skin has gotten worse since adding oatmeal. Not too much worse but I noticed it. I'm wondering if my skin just doesn't like oatmeal or if I'm going through a purging process? Has anyone dealt with this?
  20. So I've had moderate acne for a little over a year now and finally decided to go a dermatologist after I tried LOTS of different over the counter products. My doctor prescribed me Perrigo Clindamycin Phosphate and benzoyl peroxide gel,1.2%/5%. It seems to be paying off a little after two months of use. I started off with applying it once every night, then worked my way up to at morning and night. About 75% of my acne is clear besides my main problem area, my mouth/chin area. My problem is that m

  22. Hi all, so I've suffered from cheek/jawline acne for almost 3-4 years. I have asian skin btw and the good thing is that my acne is starting to heal now and I was wondering how other people think of it currently... What type of acne do I have and should I still be worried? And is there any way I could reduce the appearance of redness and pores? Thank you! right cheek left cheek
  23. Hi everyone, I've been using this site for a long time, and tonight I decided to finally become a member. I truly appreciate the wealth of information, and the support that this community continues to offer to everyone out there struggling with acne. I'm a 20 year old male and my acne has definitely left me with some physical and emotional scars. In fact, thats the topic I'm hoping to get some answers on.
