    Prestige Skin Care

    Hello everyone, I've lurked around the site for awhile now, and this is my first real post. I was wondering if there is anyone out there that uses prestige/higher end skin care and if so, what? I've been using Apothederm's acne line for awhile now and I really love it. The acne treatment is oil free and light weight on my skin, and the brightening cleanser is super gentle. I also LOVE the clarifying toner, because it isn't drying like most other toners I've tried. It leaves my skin fr

    Day 41

    Hi all! I wanted to write about other skin care things I do periodically that have been helping my skin. While most days I just wash, moisturize, then pop on Differin (only at night), some days I do add extra steps if my skin is looking a bit lackluster. These are the things that have been helping me non-medicine-wise, so I thought I'd share. My favorite thing at the moment is the $5 complexion brush from Sephora. I wish I could get a Clarisonic, but being out of my budget, this will do. I
  3. On my last blog , I said that my skin is super oily and didn't itchy at all ! But guess what happened ? It was starting to get itchy on day 2 and today (12/5/2016-day 3) it was like hell to me. My skin was completely dried and itchy like hell. I have to go to school and I had to suffer tried so hard not to scratch or even touch my skin. I didn't know whether to use the moistreriser or not whenever my skin felt tried ?. another thing that came to me is the enourmous pore. Before i started to
  4. i have red spots and i want to conceal them but because of the peeling skin it is hard as it looks cakey and during mid day my skin just becomes flakey and i can't put make up on it again. Also how long does these red marks from acne take to fade? Im scared to use natural acidic products as my skin is still sensitive and my derm gave me products to use for my face (own company made, quite good) so should i buy my own products to help lighten my red marks? if so any recommendations?
  5. Hi all, A little background of myself: I am 30 years old and I have been suffering from Severe to mild acne since i was 15 years old. My first time ever going to a dermatologist for medicine was about 2 years ago and he prescribed me epiduo with doxycycline and it took a year for my acne to clear up, but I never got rid of blemishes and some scars around my face. After I cleared up, I stopped using the medicine and I broke out again after 2 months and now I went to a different doctor and he in
  6. (I'm sorry for the silly, slightly absurd doodle on my pictures cause those pictures are taken just right after when i woke up so i dont want all of you to know how crappy i look lol. Click the photo for a better view.. only of you want to.... haha) Anyway hi! Im almost 16 years old living somewhere in Asia.. a lot of people are often mistaken that (all asians) have perfect skin.. idk. That's a hasty generalization, don't you think? I've been struggling (kind of) with mild to moderate acne for
  7. My acne is healed. I healed my skin with a combination of: Diet - I do not eat gluten, I avoid dairy products, lots of fruits and vegetables. I still enjoy my food and eat out on occasion. A few months of the caveman regimen (which allowed me to discover that my skin is extremely DRY and SENSITIVE not oily.) Stopping my skin picking habit (took a long time but I no longer touch my face or pick my skin.) The first and most important rule of my current acne routine is that it
  8. With the incredibly high levels of toxins in the air and all the pollution that’s finding its way into our lives, it’s inevitable we’ll, from time to time, suffer some sort of skin damage, no matter how great genetics we’ve got. Luckily, there’s a way to prevent it, and if not prevent it – then successfully treat it. Not to add fuel to fire, we’d never suggest chemically processed beauty products; that would be like advertising cheeseburgers for weight loss – ridiculous and inefficient. In
  9. I take really good care of my skin (sunscreen, facial masks, moisturizer, products targeted specifically to fade red marks, etc.) and I don't have an acne problem but every. single. time. I get a zit it results in a flat red post-acne mark that takes ages to fade. This problem didn't start until last year and some of those first red marks I ever got still haven't faded completely, and it's been a year. It's really frustrating. Why did my skin become this way all of a sudden? Why am I so prone to
  10. Hey, --BACKGROUND-- I'm a accutane "sufferer" as many on this board. I took isotretinoin from December 2011 to August 2012. I had a quite low daily dose because my skin and lips were so insanely dry. I have also suffered side effects such as tight muscles, sore joints and (mild) depression. A couple of weeks after stopping the course I had a few tiny break-outs and decided to call my derm. He prescribed me differin. I already had two circles of redness high up my cheecks because of
  11. Anyone have any product suggestions for accutane that they could not do/have done without? Moisturizers? Lip balm? Body lotions? Face wash? Body wash? Shaving creams (for women)? Shampoo/conditioner? And for the ladies...MAKEUP! (to cover up all those pesky acne marks and red spots left behind...) Thanks for any and all suggestions and recommendations! Feel free to comment on anything you didn't like or that caused breakouts, as well!
  12. Hi folks, I am someone who is yet to try skin needling for my indented acne scars and have spent a lot of time reading various topics on this forum and other internet sites over the past few days to try and educate myself on the subject. It seems that some people have yielded some really good results from either derma rolling or derma stamping – skin needling, if you will. Now, it would seem to me that in order to maximise the results that you can achieve – you should do other things in ac
  13. Holy heck it is closed comedone time, my dudes. They are everywhere. I didn’t used to break out on my cheeks but now I am. I still believe that it’s the comedones being expelled because I shamefully picked one of the more painful spots and a small, teardrop-shaped hard piece came out of my pore, almost like a small piece of uncooked rice. From previous experience, that’s similar to what is in closed comedones - really hard semi-spherical bits (don’t judge me, this is science). Good news: nearly
  14. So I think my weeks may be one off on these posts, but when I go back and look, I can’t see where the mistake is… idk. Ever since my dosage was upped, I’ve been getting a long and irritating breakout. I know it’s probably my body expelling the deep acne in my skin, but it HURTS and my skin picking has become a lot more challenging as a result. My closed comedones have become more numerous and obvious, yet all of my mirrors in my room are covered to dissuade my picking sessions so I’m not exactly

    Accutane Day 2

    I am on Day 2 of Accutane. I took 1 40 mg pill with breakfast this morning. So far, I haven't experienced much of anything in the way of side effects. I did have a bit of a headache after taking my pill yesterday morning, but it felt more like a brain freeze and went away after a few minutes. Here is what I'm using in the way of skin, body, lip, and eye products while on Accutane: -Aquaphor for lips -CeraVe Cleansing Lotion (Have been using for 2 months) -CeraVe Pump Moisturizer (Have be

    Week 9: Day 58 Pictures

    Hello people out there! Not really that much to update this week. I get my blood work done tomorrow morning and I am not looking forward to it, but hopefully it will go better this time than last month. The eczema that I had about a week and a half ago is so much better now and the top of my arms feel like butter. Seriously. Sorry, this is going to be a short post, but I haven’t had any big side effects or breakouts this week. So let’s check out this week’s pictures:
  17. For anyone who might follow this blog, sorry that I’m a day late on this update. Life has been more than crazy lately. I’ve had a lot of stress in my family with my father who suffers from Rheumatoid Arthritis and also, lately, a very good friend of mine was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia – Acute Monocytic Leukemia. It’s been very difficult and stressful, but these hard times will pass eventually, I am sure of it. Update skin wise – my hands and around my elbows are just really dry.

    Week 12: Day 79

    Ughhhh. Late again. I’ve been feeling very fatigued and between that, being busy and just having general craziness in life, this blog hasn’t been a huge priority. The biggest grief I’ve had this week has been the stupid cold sore I got last week and tried vehemently to get it to go away. I put apple cider vinegar on it almost every hour, I’ve kept it moist with Aquaphor and Vaseline, I’ve put a liquid bandage on it, the list goes on… but I think it’s finally beginning to go away. I think m

    The Best Products

    Hello beauties! I just recently wrote an incredibly lengthy blog explaining my acne journey, in which I included some regimens and products that really worked for me. However I realize probably no one wants to read an essay about my life, so here's a shorter version of products that have really worked and didn't work for me. Good cleansers: Skin essence - pure: A cleanser made up of different healing oils made specifically for the face. This is the only cleanser that has really helpe
  20. Hi guys I am interested in hearing about everyone else's skin care routines! I thought we could all write our routines here and give eachother tips & tricks etc. I've made a video about mine which you can watch here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SL5kANUd75E Does anyone have any tips on how to get rid of post-acne hyper pigmentation? That's one thing I need help with Thanks!
  21. hi there! I’m new in the forum so please forgive me if this is not the right place to post this. I mainly made an account to meet people going through the same problem I’m facing, and maybe finding a bit of hope for when the acne demon brings me down. I’m 27 yo and I’ve been struggling with cystic acne since I was 16. Back then my dermatologist prescribed me Accutane after every topical and antibiotic treatment failed, and I took it for 1 year. I was also indicated to take Diane for birth cont
  22. Hello! For the past year or two I have been trying to tackle my acne using The Regimen and other acne products containing salicylic acid. I have come to the conclusion that although these products have helped me get 95% clear, they're really harsh and drying on my skin - especially anything containing salicylic acid and BP. I've narrowed down that my acne was down to having oily skin due to not moisturising (my skin was overcompensating for the oil I stripped from it) and now that I do m
