  1. So I recently moved to South Korea and since arriving I’ve had a flare up of acne which I haven’t seen since I was 17. I was prescribed doxycycline and a topical cream back then which worked wonders and for the past few years I’ve only experienced the odd break out and some scarring. So I went to see a dermatologist here in Korea who again prescribed me the doxycycline but no topical treatments as he said they have minimal affect in his opinion. He also told me not to use ANY other cosmetic
  2. Hey guys! I'm so glad to be getting some feedback on this blog from you! I am more than willing to answer any and all questions you wanna ask me, so please never hesitate to leave comments! Anyways, I'm approaching my last week of month 2 and I'm starting to see some real results...hooray! After increasing my dosage to 60mg, I did experience another initial breakout which was a bit disheartening but totally normal. As of now, my forehead is a bit of a war zone again but below my eyebrows
  3. Swimsuit season is approaching and is my least favorite time of the year as I suffer from severe bacne. I finally found one company with full coverage suits that hide most of my bacne (Lime Ricki Swimwear) and was looking to see if there were any other swimsuits brands or companies that other people have purchased from that offer fashionable swimsuits that hide bacne?
  4. 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
  5. I've been hearing a lot about this microneedling over the last year and had considered giving it a try. But it wasn't until I heard a coworker raving about it that I thought I should actually go for it. Basically, you're rolling dozens of tiny needles all over your face, causing controlled injury to the layers of skin and forcing the body to increase collagen production. This improves, apparently, fine lines, scarring, hyperpigmentation, and skin firmness. There are different needle length

    Update 7

    The past few days have been really great days. I think my skin is finally calming down. I’ve learned to notice the signs of an oncoming breakout so I can stop use of whatever caused it. I’ve also learned to distinguish the difference between breakouts and purging. I’ve learned about my skin’s needs, how to pick the right products for my skin, and overall I’ve learned how to make my skin happy. This week has been the first that my skin hasn’t had any new pimples pop up. I of course
  7. Update 5! Hi guys! I’m sorry I haven’t been able to update on a daily basis or post daily pictures over the past few days. I’ve been super busy. That being said, I stayed consistent with my regimen, which is cool. I would say that my face has been looking just a little bit better. Today’s pictures will be labeled “Day 7” which means it’s been just about a week since this new regimen has become a regular thing for me. While I do think the active acne and the scars that were already

    End Of Week 11

    Oh I am so sorry guys - January has been a particularly crazy month....! So in my last post it was end of week 8 and I have seen some great results. Really, the only thing that I have to deal with now is the scarring. Mine is so bad from all the awful blemishes and my complete inability to NOT mess with them.... As I can't exfoliate or use any products that encourage peeling etc. I will just have to let time run it's course. I did think about perhaps using BioOil, as people seem to see res

    End Of Week 6

    Hello All, So I mentioned before that I was going to see my Derm this week to see where I was with my treatment etc. looks like my body is taking accutane very well, as my side effects are not as severe as what most people go through. 1. My initial breakout was a couple of big cysts, only lasting for just less than two weeks. Apparently some people can suffer from IB for a month. However, she did say that this can be curbed with antibiotics and it's rare that it should last that long -
  10. I have blotchy/scarred/pigmented skin esp on my face but generally I feel like my skin is transparent/blotchy and pale everywhere. Would tanning help with this? I don't want to go much darker but just to even out my skin tone and if yes, what would be the best noncomedogenic tanners that can be used on face also? TIA
  11. I almost forgot to post this, but then I remembered, TWO MONTHS! YAY!!! So, two months on Roaccutane. Hopefully it's going to be uphill from here on out. You'd be surprised to know that I finally got my script sent out, but it's the WRONG DAMN SCRIPT. So it will probably be another 6-10 years before the correct one will arrive. So, I'm still on 60mg. My skin isn't looking too bad at the moment. It is definitely smoother, for sure. I'm very, very dry all over my body though. My arms, my
  12. SIXSIXSIXSIXSIXSIX. Okay, okay. So currently on 60mg a day. I was meant to be bumped up 10mg but my derms handwriting is so illegible that the script got lost in the mail. What is with health specialist and their crappy handwriting? Hello, I'm paying you $145 a visit, can you at least make it possible for a piece of paper to get to me? Anyway, my skin's kind of meh. I've had about 5 breakouts come up this week, and all of the have been on the right side of my face. It sucks. My lips have be
  13. Do you remember that course on Mario Kart called "Wario Stadium" where all throughout the track, you were faced with massive bumps to ride over? Well that's my face. Not only are there bumps everywhere, but if they were just the slightest bit bigger, I swear a car actually could drive over them. So week two on Oratane/Roaccutane. Probably one of the hardest weeks with my skin I've had to face in a long time. I'm guessing week three with be much of the same. In my last post, I asked whether p
  14. I haven't been able to write for a while as I was on vacation. I bumped my dosage up to 30 mg for the second month, so I have been on that for about 20 days now. I will be seeing my dermatologist next week and I want to go up to 60 mg a day, which would be about my max, and would mean I could finish my cumulative dose by October. I know that low dosing provides less symptoms, but I do NOT want to be on this stuff for a whole year. We want to get pregnant next year, so... There has
  15. Just wondering does anybody know why all vitamin c supplements break me out? Pills, powder, the lot. I wanna take them to help with collagen production with scar treatments I'm getting done aswell as gum issues I have. I'd really appreciate any pointers for this one, peace out
  16. I've been working on some scarring on one of my cheeks. I've already done 3 subcisions with temporary filler as a one-month post-subcision followup. It's helped but the jagged edges are what really stand out to me, I don't think subcision can touch those. I'm trying Intracel starting next month and am wondering if I'm making the right call? I use Retin A .1 every night. All of these photos are with makeup on; I always wear makeup anyway so I just want to resolve textural issues. The sca
  17. Hey folks, I am terrible with introductions so I will jump straight into it. Been here for a number of years, I have suffered from acne since 16. In the past, they would scar and look like enlarged pores. Since the age of 21, they started to indent but I wouldn't get constant acne. They usually come in a bunch then go away so I could treat them. I am now 25 and for the past 4 months, I have been getting roughly 6 cyst spots a month and they are all scarring heavily. Befor
  18. I did a blackhead extraction myself, which i know is fucking stupid and I hate myself for doing it, because now it looks like my skin is scarring. The areas where I was the most rough was on my forehead, nose and chin, and they are now a week later still really tight, and showing signs of scabbing. When I wrinkle my skin, the dead(?) scarred(?) skin looks weird. I've tried giving the areas lots of moisture, washing it less and with the outmost care, and nothing helps. The areas keep wrinkling we
  19. Okay so I just signed up on acne.org to make myself feel better and get some advice on this tragic thing i did for my face, because I really feel like trash right now. So last week. I was looking at the mirror, close up, at my blemishes. I have this problem where I will start picking at the smallest thing on my face because im so afraid of pimples. I pick on three pimples on my cheek. All got inflamed. Throughout the week i tried putting mask, benzoyl peroxide, baking soda, etc. Two of them went
  20. Hi! I’ve been having this issue for quite some time now and can’t figure out a solution! Any suggestions would be helpful(: i LOVE wearing makeup, but I always get this scaly, rough, bumpy patch on either side of my nose (I’ve inserted a picture). Without foundation, my skin doesn’t look or feel rough or bumpy in that area. Does anyone know what this is/ how to solve this problem? Not sure if it’s more a skin issue or a makeup issue? I’ve tried SO MANY foundations and primers but I get the sam
  21. I have been on accutane for about 4 months now and I have seen improvement. Basically the acne has faded away a little, but where it was are marks that are the same, just no bumps. I don't know if this is scarring and will stay forever or will go away. Please help I'm a little worried.
  22. Hi all, So I am wondering if any of you can impart your wisdom as to how to get rid of a soft, red, raised bump left over from a pimple quicker... Background: So I have clear skin now and have done for around 9 months (*finally!*). In this time frame I have only had 1 large under the skin bumps; this one gracefully planted itself slap bang in the middle of my cheek 2 weeks ago right next to a icepick scar (so it looked super attractive) after using Paula's Choice 2% BHA the night before for
  23. Hey does anyone know a slightly cheaper way to get rid of acne scarring? I used bha cause I had closed comedomes and my skin purged and got it all out onto my skin and it's almost cleared up except these little dots on my skin.. if anyone knows how to get rid of them please let me know.. that'd be amazing because they make me so insecure
  24. i was simply wondering if lime juice helps to lighten acne scars and if not, what other methods i could use??
  25. *takes a deep breath* Hi everyone, I have a few photos below of my scarring that I've been suffering from for the past 16 years - since freakin' puberty!! Unfortunately, it completely changed me from an outgoing individual to someone much more shy and self-conscious. I'm so tired of all the looks and of course getting asked THAT question as to what happened to my face (mostly children of friends/etc. at random moments) - SO EMBARRASSING!! It's sad, but I've almost accepted what I
