  1. From the album: My Acne

    The accutane started to work by drying everything out. My lips, face, hands and joints were lacking moisture. I feel like the redness of the PIH has always been worse than the active acne was. My routine at this point was removing my makeup with olive oil, cleansing with Cetephil, moisturising with Aveeno's anti-redness cream, and either applying SPF 60 in the morning or a thin layer of Vaseline to keep moisture in.
  2. From the album: My Acne

    I believe the regular use of SPF and BHA helped tremendously in terms of my PIH and redness. It did even help slow the breakouts but, they did still persist. At this point I switched to good old Cetephil that was so much better for my skin.
  3. My current regimen: proactive 3 step formula in the morning and then I moisturizer with cetaphil derma control with SPF 30. at nigth I keep it simple with a cetaphil gentle face wash ( no moisturizer because my skin doesn't get too dry) then I apply tretinoid cream Rigth before bed. I've been on this routine for about 4 or 5 months and it's been working fair, can't complain, but I still get breakouts every now and then consisting of the kinda deep pimples that get inflamed and I have to apply a

  5. hello! (although i mean to start it primarily for those in India but in today's age boundaries aint really an issue ; considering online shopping and other modern facilities. so,do not hesitate adding ur suggestions or posting questions/concerns or seeking additional tips on sunscreen) according to me, an ideal sunscreen (for acne prone skin or otherwise) should be one - with spf 30 or morewith both chemical and physical barriers(for complete protection from UVA & UVB) with zin
  6. Hey everyone, Still have some hyperpigmentation from old acne. I am using AHA to get rid of it. But I'm worried about sun exposure. Thought I would add an SPF moisturizer. I saw that there are moisturizers that supposedly even out your skin tone and decrease appearance if hyperpigmentation. Anyone have any experience with these products? Would you recommend any? Need suggestions! Thanks
  7. I have done A LOT of research on the best SPF moisturizer to use for acne prone skin. I have looked at the individual ingredients, gone over reviews on tons of different websites, and had much personal experience. The best in my opinion is Aveeno ultra calming moisturizer SPF 15. The ingredients are great for general acne prone skin (unless you are specifically allergic to any of them..obviously), the reviews on all different websites are very positive (acne.org, target, makeupalley, ulta, et
  8. Has anyone found a sunscreen or even a moisturizer with SPF that hasn't broken them out or worsened acne? If you could suggest some brands or products that would be great! I've been avoiding sunscreen/ SPF because a lot of people say it does break them out - but I feel like by not using it I'm setting myself up for premature skin ageing or skin issues worse than acne (such as skin cancer). I know I really should be using one, especially because it's always sunny here and I have pale skin.
  9. Is Mineral Makeup Good for Acne?

    All makeup contains some minerals, which are necessary for makeup to have color. Pure mineral makeup is makeup that consists only of minerals. In other words, true mineral makeup does not contain any fragrances, water, oils, waxes, or preservatives. Just minerals.1,2 Since pure mineral makeup only contains dry solids, it usually comes in the form of loose or pressed powders.1,2 However, many manufacturers today use the term "mineral makeup" loosely to market a variety of products. For...
  10. Are Self-tanners Safe for Acne-prone Skin?

    Self-tanners, also known as sunless tanners, are topical cosmetic products for achieving a tanned appearance without the risks of sun exposure. Self-tanning products contain chemicals that darken surface skin cells, creating an artificial tan that lasts several days. There are many types of self-tanners on the market, including lotions, gels, mousses, and sprays. Self-tanners should not be confused with temporary bronzers and makeup bronzers. Bronzers create a tanned look by applying color to the top of the...

  12. Okay! So far so good. Today's going to be interesting, though. It's only been two days, but I'm enjoying this. STILL waiting on Dan's products, but the BP's definitely working it's magic, despite my redness/flakes. I mentioned in my previous post that I accidentally popped a pimple...woops! BUT, I put some tomato juice on it, and today there was minimal redness and absolutely no swelling. Lovely! I was so excited about these results that I made a tomato juice/seed mask this morni
  13. So I am just a week shy of hitting my 6 month mark on the regimen, and I am still battling excessive flakiness. I wake up with a big amount of flakes all over my face, and also at night, I start to flake quite a bit as well, not even 12 hours post morning routine. Here is my current daily routine, for both morning and night: Cleanse, 1.5 pumps bp, and Cerave Moisturizing Lotion to moisturize, with about 6 drops of jojoba oil. Please help me out as this is very frustrating, and I haven't hear
  14. Hey y'all, I just started my 3rd round of accutane. I had 2 rounds in highschool about 7 years ago and it cleared my skin beautifully with almost no scars and my skin really responded well to it. I just started a full time post-college job last may and i guess between the stress and oily skin that sat on my face for 9 hours a day I started to break out with some white heads and a couple cysts. Nothing major but it bothered me so I went to a Derm and he prescribed me Retin-a micro. Ter
  15. At long last an Acne.org SPF is on its way. _____ When: It should be for sale this Spring. What sizes: It will be sold in an 8oz. bottle and 16oz. bottle for now, but may be available in an 8oz. tube in the future. SPF rating: After FDA required testing, results are in and it will have an SPF rating of 16. I made sure to choose active ingredients which produce true broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection. Price: We have not priced it yet. It will be a bit more expensive than the regular Moistu
  16. Okay guys so im having so much difficulties with moisturizers.... I dont know which ones to go with... It seems like every moisturizer with an spf 15 leaves residue all over the place and it doesnt sink in or absorb well with dans BP i have tried olay complete spf 15 sensitive skin and it doesnt moisturize very good i always add the 5-6 drops of jojoba oil and it still doesnt do its job... so i quit using that moisturizer now im currently using L'oreals active daily moisture spf 15 and it moistu
  17. Hey all! So I've been reading the forums here for two years and decided I should finally sign up. Anywho, I am finishing my course at the end of the month. Immediately after that I'm going to London for the five months. We are going to be in the sun A LOT. I've been diligently applying physical sunscreen (Vanicream SPF 60) every two hours my entire course, but I am sick and tired of always being pasty white and looking like I'm sweating! But I really don't want to sunburn. My hyper-pigmentation
  18. Hey! Sooo I've been reading certain topics about the moisturizer and how to handle SPF, etc. I bought Philosophy Hope In A Jar SPF 30. It's expensive, but lasts a long time and is completely non-comedogenic, unlike most of the sunscreens out there. It's great! Anyway, does it really matter how one applies the sunscreen in the morning? I usually just mix it in with Dan's moisturizer and apply it that way, but I've been reading comments people have made about how you have to apply the s
  19. I have some SPF 15 moisturizer and I was wondering if that was enough for me to go out in the sun for a little bit.
  20. From the album: My Acne

    Skin is really starting to heal now. I've been off accutane for threes months and now the achy joints and hair loss and other side effects are gone. I've just started to use my Soniclear (dupe for the clarisonic) and that has helped so much in terms of the texture I have on my skin. I have zero acne but I do have raised scars that look like acne. I also started to include a vitamin c serum to my routine and have been wearing sunscreen everyday. I think these two things have helped tremen

  22. After searching high and low, I've finally found a sunscreen I can wear with NO silica, silicones, dimethicone, oils, scent, fragrance and I have not had a breakout of burning of my EYES! This spf 30 is the truth. I have used it for two weeks, usually a sunscreen will bring about a breakout within a day. I am so happy with the spf, I feel so lucky to have found it. I sound like I'm talking about a soul mate..it's my spf soul mate. I would recommend this for everyone. I have oily skin and i
