  1. It's been a little over 2 months now of Retin A and I'm really happy with how it's going now. My skin adjusted nicely and I'm looking forward to seeing it improve even more with continued use. I cover a lot more details in the video below if you are interested. Also, my diet has been very beneficial for my skin. Between my clean eating and using Retin A, my skin is in wonderful shape right now. Retin A Micro .1% - 8 Week Update: My Acne Story: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pz8
  2. So, I haven't posted in almost 5 months because the last time I logged in I was in my way to recovery, so nothing very interesting was happening. After I finally got the hang of it, for the first time in my life I started seeing real results. The Regimen works, at least it did for me. In March I was still using a finger's lenght of Dan's BP twice a day, and even with the moisturizer and the jojoba oil, I was still experiencing dryness and peeling. So I brought it down a notch and currently m

    End Of Week 5

    Hello All, So, I feel confident enough to post a pic...before my roaccutane treatment began (check out that STONKER on my foehead!) and after 5 weeks. Happy to say that the results are great ! Still on the same skincare regime and not experiencing any flakiness on my face or dryness - so Body Shop's Vitamin E range is perfect for me. Seeing my derm this week for my first follow up appt, quite excited to hear her advice on my prescription, if she'll bump me up to 60mg a day. Still no
  4. So first off I wanna say thanks to everyone for reading my blog now that I have over 4000 views! I havent had one zit until today I got a very very small one that will be gone in a day or two. I've noticed Accutane is making me not very hungry at all. My skin has been really dry and Im using all the same products. Im almost halfway done with Accutane! My hyperpgimentation is still there and I am patiently waiting for them to fade. Theres not really much else to update. Keep reading!!!
  5. 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
  6. From the album: Acne.org Regimen Results

    I wasn't going to post these pictures because it's embarrassing to see just how bad my skin used to be!!! However, I figured someone could benefit from my struggle. I've struggled with acne for the last 10 years. I've tried changing my diet, prescription meds, Proactiv, Murad, Clean & Clear, Neutrogena, all-natural face washes, masks, scrubs, etc. YOU NAME IT, I'VE TRIED IT!!!! I even tried to cover it with makeup. But no matter how much concealer you use, there's just no covering a bumpy su

    Four months into the regimen. Pic with minimal make up (tinted moisturizer).
  8. I received my saliva hormone test results back - and I have very low Estrogens, actually normal-low range Progesterone and normal-high range Testosterone. What are your thoughts?! RESULTS: Estradiol - 0.8 Progesterone - 112 Testosterone - 48 Ratio: Pg/E2 - 140 RANGES: Estradiol: 1.3 - 3.3 (Pre-meno / Luteal) Progesterone: 75-270 (Pre-meno / Luteal) Testosterone: 16-55 (Age dependent?) Ratio: Pg/E2: Optimal 100-500 When E2 1.3 - 3.3
  9. Hello everyone, I just wanted to give a little update of my 4 month journey with this regimen. Quick background story: Hormonal acne, mild and I was on the pill Yasmin for more than 10 years, stopped, had a bunch of acne, tried a bunch of "natural" treatments, didn't stick to a routine, got scared, went back on the pill, it was horrible and now I stopped it again, 6 months ago, promising to stick to the Acne.org regimen. For the longer version, check http://www.acne.org/messageboard/topic/35
  10. the result after 3 weeks I think I started to fast that's why my face red and painful:(
  11. Has there been a thread dedicated to before and after pictures that show ACTUAL results. I see a lot of people on here that claim all this improvement but have no proof or have pictures that make it hard to tell anything about their acne scarring at all. A lot of it feels like someone is lying to us to try to give us hope and make us blow every dime we have on treatments that dont work as advertised. Can we start a thread strictly dedicated to BEFORE and AFTER pictures detailing all treatments t
  12. hello friends! holistic living and healthy diet is known to have a positive effect on us,acne sufferers. so having a balanced diet and having an active life(both physically and mentally) is important. also eliminating food items that cause u problem is a must.(different people seems to have different intolerance..so don't go by what others are following.check for yourselves what suits you and what doesn't but make it a point to share your unique experiences and ideas/concepts.it'll not onl
  13. Hi everyone. I am currently on Roaccutane to treat my cystic acne. I have always had acne, which is partially due to my Thyroid Disease which ruined my hormone balance, resulting in more acne! I mostly am left with pretty severe scarring, but every few months I would get a huge flare up of cystic, painful acne and in between those flare ups, I had normal acne and those horrible small bumps that never turn into anything! I am taking 40mgs per day, and have been since the initial 2 week s
  14. Hey guys Im starting my third month September 13th and I was showing you my results. I see some but still not jumping with joy. I dont have many active acne but I have old acne or hyperpigmentation. I hope its just old acne thats going to heal cause I cant stand all these red marks. First month was 40mg and this month was 60mg. I hope I get bumped up to atleast 70mg next Thursday. Any feedback would be awesome. Trying to keep my spirtis up. 1st three are before and last three is as of today
  15. Well I finished my accutane course 6 months and a week ago yesterday (kinda) and I also started dermarolling yesterday. The thing is I've taken about 10 40 mg pills in-between my accutane *finish* and I was wondering if I should continue to dermaroll? And also, who else has dermarolled recently after a an accutane treatment, and what results did you get?
  16. So December 2013 I walzed into my uncoopertive doctor's office with a totally non-acne related problem. Just as my doctor was about to leave me she looked at me and said "Have you ever done anything about your acne?" Of course I go into a 10 minute detailed list of allllll the things I have tried since 2009. She merely looked at me, ignored everything I said, and said "Have you tried Benzoyl Peroxide?" Of course it ticked me off a bit because I mentioned it threeeeeee times in my list of medicat
  17. Please answer the week 1 poll! WEEK 1 RECAP My skin got super dry around day 3 and is still dry on day 7. Im using lots and lots of moisturizer to try and combat it. Over the past week the overall redness of my face has become signifigantly better Im still getting pimples at a regular rate, but they go away faster and dont get as inflamed I got a cystic pimple (something ive only had one of before) but i believe its coincidence and not because of the treatment, and its s
  18. So this morning means it has almost been a full week since I started The Regimen and I started using basic washes I have at home (But acne.org stuff came this morning): Wash: BeautiControl wash (lotion) BP: BeautiControl spot treatment with 2% BP Moisturizer: Meleluca Renew & BeautiControl Overnight lotion I have also done 3 facials in between: 1.) Sea Salt hot press followed by Black tea bag (this on my cystic acne: worked like a charm) done on clean skin. 2.) a Honey mask a couple

    Baby Steps

    Hey there, This will be quick because I am exhausted. So my skin is improving, the skin cleanser and shea butter (which I'm switching for something else for a trial run) has been really helping. I still pick ... BUT!! BUT! BUT! BUT! I have realised that cold turkey only adds to the stress! So, instead I've been working on reducing the amount of times I pick, the duration, and the amount of zits. And slowly, but surely, my picking has decreased and stayed in its reduced state, (minor increas
  20. Hey guys, so today is day 45 on retin a and im in awe... ive been tracking my progress using photos and i see a major imporvement in my skin! smoother skin, more evened out skin tone, smaller blemishes, very few blemishes! For the first time in a while im just so happy to be able to go out and not be afraid to be seen! its a big emotional reliever and physical also! i never wake up with a sore face due to my acne i can move my face around and i wont feel any pain! (just using an example, do not
  21. Hello! Its been a while since I posted on here so I wanted to post an update on my scaring. Today I went through my progression photos before starting any treatments, up until today where I have had a CO2 laser, 3 subcisions and several sessions of dermapen. Its always hard to get lighting the same each time, but I still think I have some good results. Looking at the first photo, on the right side the scars look very "sharp", I remember my plastic surgeon saying the laser would smooth the
  22. HI, So, I've been on Accutane ( Amnesteem 40 mg, once a day) for 2 full months now, starting my 3rd today. My experience with Accutane has been amazing - pretty much a life savior. I had pretty bad acne, but after a month of Accutane it was gone. Since then I've had maybe 7 pimples (which is awesome considering my past). Anyways, my derm doesn't let people continue Accutane in the summer because of sun exposure (honestly, I really really hate this) so I have to stop in June. That means I will
  23. Hello Everyone, i am new here and have been on the regimen for a solid 2 months. i have seen some results, but really am not happy with the results i've been having. i've been wondering if i can incorporate Witch Hazel into my regimen, which is Dan's products. i've heard amazing things about Witch Hazel, and i've had Dickinson's witch hazel for a very long time just sitting in my cabinet, because it was my cousin's and he just left a full bottle here. PLEASE can anyone tell me where i can incorp
