  1. To start off, I am going to try and start posting once a month at least, hopefully, more often than that. As for the update on my skin, it hasn't been the best few days. I think that is because I have run out of acidophilus that I pair with spiro, and my skin is not liking that. I forgot to call in the refill before the weekend. As a result of that, I have a few new spots on my cheek that are honestly really bothering me. I can't feel them, but my skin was looking good before this. It might also

    Day Two: Skincare

    Day Two of my skincare routine: Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser (morning and night) Mario Badescu Glycolic Acid toner (morning and night) Mario Badescu Drying Lotion (morning and night, depending on daytime schedule) I love this gentle skin cleanser guys. if you've ever tried high-end cleansing milks, this is highly comparable. So as an update from yesterday, my skin is feeling so much less tight and the peeling seems to be almost gone completely (after a whole week). I washe

    Day Seven!

    *Sigh* As my first week passes looking back I don't know how well it really went. When I'm focused and on track I feel great and do great, but it's hard when things start to get in the way. Between swimming, and having company over I started to get tired andwould quickly wash before jumping ino bed. Followed by me sleeping until noon and rushing to wash and start my day. This made the quality of my washing awful, I didn't give my skin a chance to absorb what I was putting on it before piling on
  4. Helo! Can't believe I have been following the regimen for 3 weeks already (booyeah)! After all the redness, flaking and itchy skin, I have finally passed that stage already. My skin is no longer red but as compared to my neck, it is still a bit darker. But yea most of the active acne, I can say, are 95% gone from my face There are still acne scars caused by previous acne in some part of my cheeks. But as for the forehead and nose area are pretty much cleared. My current skin routine: -
  5. As evidenced in my last post, I’ve smeared a lot of crap on my face. But, what do I use now? And do I like it? CURRENT ROUTINE: AM: 1. I wake up, pissed off because I haven’t figured out a way to safely inject coffee into my blood stream. 2. Shuffle to bathroom. Shuffle to closet. Shuffle to dresser. Forget what I was doing. Groan. 3. Wash with Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser. Okay, so let’s be honest. I bought the knockoff Wal-Mart Equate Skin C
  6. I thought I would share my routine that I have been using for the past week, since I've started Roaccutane. I have never had a proper skincare routine and only used Silcock's Base as a moisturiser because I was afraid to try different products on my skin because of my acne and eczema. From left; 1)I use the La Roche-Posay Effaclar wash to remove my makeup. I rub it all over my face and it forms a lather and I wash my face with a cotton pad until all my make up is removed (it takes two
  7. Daily: Morning: African Black Soap Cetaphil moisturizing lotion Evening: African Black Soap Neo-Medrol Topical (dermatologist prescribed) Cetaphil moisturizing lotion Weekly Sunday: Honey mask (homemade- just started today) Bi-weekly Wednesday: Sugar Exfoliating Scrub (homemade)
  8. Whadup skincare routine! I thought I'd share with you my skincare routine (for both morning and evening) in the hope it can help you guys out there who are still suffering from that bastard we all know as acne. So, on we go: Morning LUSH Coalface Cleanser - I use this with an exfoliating pad I bought from Target. I cut little pieces off the block of cleanser and work it into a lather with my hands. I then apply to my face, wet the exfoliating pad, and "buff" the cleanser into my skin.
  9. Before I start - I realized I made an entry titled "Eight Weeks" it was actually "Six Weeks" WHOOPS! Lol. I can't believe it has only been two months! I feel and see my skin improving with every passing week. I have been getting a lot of compliments on my skin recently and it has made me feel SO good. It's amazing to see how much of an impact having acne had on my overall self image. My skin was free of actual pimples until my last post. That cluster came from what I believe was five days of bi
  10. Skin Condition today I woke up with skin that wasnt all that red at all. Even my acne seemed to be less red. My cheeks dont seem to have much acne on them anymore, just lots and lots of old acne marks my chin has a few dry scablike spots from where some whiteheads popped the night before last. my forehead is looking pretty good. Its really smooth aside from a few pink bumps and 1 whitehead. otherwise my skin texture looks good. The deep "underground" painful pimple ju
  11. So that primer/bb cream disaster that happened last week showed its true colors this week. And those colors were RED AND WHITE. you know those lovely colors when they erupt on your face. It was not cute, boo boo. It all was concentrated on one side of my chin, as you can see from the pic (keep in mind, this is me w eye makeup and some concealer on. Not the normal sexy clean face bathroom shot rawr) Things have calmed down significantly since Sunday/Monday this week. Now it's Thursday and the
  12. 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.
  13. 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
  14. Hi there! This is the first blog that I'm adding to give some useful tips for acne. I'm sorry it took so long to add a blog. So first off, here's my current routine: I wash my face with water in the morning. I exfoliate in the morning with a toothbrush dipped in some epsom salt and baking soda, but I only do this twice a week after I wash my face with water. I then apply Cerave moisturizing cream to my face. At night, I wash my face, usually with the Dove sensitive skin beauty bar, or sometim
  15. Again, I am wearing concealer and eye makeup. But you can see my 2 active breakouts and lots of red marks lingering .... Lingering...
  16. Thought y'all might want to see a selfie w makeup and such. This was me on my way to my lunch break last week. Proof that you can have acne and still be a kick ass human being! Girl power! (Insert British spice girls accent)
  17. Hey guys, how are you all today? I feel a little frustrated with myself, but its not because of my skin just chemistry...I am so not understanding it at all. I hope I start to get to grips with it soon though. Apart from that Im okay I guess. I felt quite down about my skin at the beginning of the week, you know I guess we all get like that sometimes...its so strange sometimes I am great other days I am the most pessimistic, anti-social person on the entire earth. I really hate it when I HA
