  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
  2. Day 2 Hello! Hope you all had a good day. Thanks to it being a sunday I had another day without makeup. Even though it’s only been one day without touching my face there is already an improvement. My skin is less red, some scabs have healed and flaked away and there are no new spots today. I did knock the head off of one tiny whitehead under my eyebrow today before I realised what I was doing. But that was it, and everytime I found myself leaning in towards the mirror to inspect the
  3. Hi everyone. Just joined this website earlier and this is my first blog/conversation. I am 21 years old and have had acne since the age of about 14. At the start of February I was prescribed Accutane and I first started taking the drug on February 6th 2016, so that will be 16 weeks on the drug tomorrow (about 4 months). Bottom line.. MY SKIN IS STILL BAD AND IM STILL BREAKING OUT, my derm is calling then 'pustuals'. Now don't get me wrong my skin is getting better in certain areas (forehead and

    forehead acne

    i'm 14 and i've had acne for at least 7 months now, at first it was a mixture of pimples on my cheeks, chin, forehead etc but it was very light acne - more of teenage breakouts but for the past 7 or so months i've had acne specifically on my forehead, which i think is cystic acne? i've tried so many things and read up about it so much - i've tried different skin care like tea tree and so forth but unfortunately it just dried my skin out so much to the point it was crispy which was really gros

    I finished my second week of Accutane yesterday and the side effects have been rolling in this week haha! I had a bit of a crazy week this week, I've been trying to plan my sisters hen party which we celebrated on Friday/Saturday, lets just say I'm bloody happy it's over! As i said before, I've been enjoying a wide range of side effects this week, the worst being the whole of my mouth peeling. Literally, when I wake up I can swipe a towel around the inside of my mouth and it comes out
  6. I tried to stop obsessing over my acne last few months, without so much success to be honest. I tried limiting eggs for a while and nightshades but didn't seem to do anything, as usual. I have also been trying to eat less foods that make me fart, hoping there is some kind of ludicrous connection between farting and acne lol. That means less fruit and veg and wheat, if any, which means eating like a weirdo and then the inevitable binges like the big girl I am. Acne was so so for last few week

  8. After a chocolate binge on Thursday the 9th May and Friday the 10th i have completely removed all refined sugar from my diet + milk. I had a very bad breakout 2/3days after the chocolate binge so from the ~13th but this only last for a few days or so and started cleaning up from about last weds/thurs[15/16]. Something to note is that i also started eating fruit from the 9th May onwards so this well could of been the culprit rather/plus the chocolate. Although i compellingly removed a

  14. I've had acne for pretty much all my life I'm 23 now and for the last 5 years I have thought about my acne literally everyday, hour. I go to sleep every night hoping it will disappear and never does, I drink so much water and wash my face twice a day. It has stopped me from doing so many things . I constantly look in the mirror and am so disappointed with how I look, thinking why can't it end, I cannot move on in life until it does, and even when I don't have a breakout my face still looks so r

    Hello everyone!!! This is a picture of my face on day 49! I have about 2-3 pimples left on that cheek! I started with 30 actives on this cheek alone before the regimen! YAY!
  18. Ok I really don't feel like typing a lot but I am very exited and need to type this right now. long story short I have had red acne marks for the last 5-6 months now which have been healing over time but never completely for instance after a shower they will look very red for about 15 minutes. ANYWAY I have avoided exercise like the plague for the last 5-6 months doing litteraly as little as possible (accept walking to school) as I thought this would only create more acne or even pro-long my m
  19. Hi all, can anyone offer their honest experiences with vitamin b5? Firstly, has anyone had any success with supplementing 500mg instead of megadosing as im not comfortable with that. I've read a lot of the other forums that mention users supplementing along side l-cartinine or other supplements. Also did it have any effect on you acne or just the oily skin? thanks for your help!
  20. Anybody please help. I've had this skin for as long as I can remember. It is oily, every pore seems to be congested. My forehead is bumpy with tiny grains of grey/black colouring in each piece hat nothing seems to get rid of. My nose and cheek area that meets my nose are covered in sebaceous filaments. I get spots on chin, cheeks and forehead. My neck has little white closed comodones. I have researched so so so many things on te internet ad spent countless of money on various products and tr
  21. Hi!im totally new to posting anything about my acne! I've followed this site getting so much comfort from other's stories and advice, so thought I'd take the plunge and write one myself. Ive had acne for 11 years now, started when I was about 13 and I've never grown out of it. I generally swing between being devastated and accepting (although, this is usually when it's having an 'OK' day) I had had a brief period where my skin was immaculate! I was on the Qlaira birth control pills. It only last
  22. I'm 20 and I never really had a problem with acne growing up. But since the fall started I've been getting more pimples than usual and I have these tiny red dots on above my lip/under my nose and around my mouth. It won't go away!!! It's not pimples though. Also how can I help hormonal acne cause I get whiteheads during pms and it's so frustrating. In the summer I had flawless skin cause the sun helps me. Idk if this is weather or hormone related.
  23. Hi all, I have suffered with acne for 2+ years now first it started of severed but after being on a prescribed antibiotic and making a lot of healthy lifestyle changes it went to moderate acne but still has not gone? Still to this day I wake up every morning with the same red scars left and even more white heads over my cheeks and round the mouth area where they are more painful above my lip on the sides of my nose and on my chin. I do not understand why everyday I wake up with a new load of whi
  24. Hi, FIrst time poster, long term acne sufferer. Dealt with it mostly by cutting out meat (on face). Fatty foods/alcohol/stress still effect but is manageable. Usually not too bothered about chest but has never been this bad and is quite persistent. Any advice much appreciated. Wax? Some sort of treatment? They start as white heads and stick around as red marks for a fair old while. Any advice much appreciated as this is now pretty aggravating.
  25. So my problem is relatively well illustrated by the attached pictures, but I'll include some backstory. So I'm post Accutane (Isotretinoin) currently, I started it in October of 2015 and ended it in March of 2016... It worked extremely well, removing I'd say around 95% of my acne. Now I'm dealing with the remaining 5%, which is mild scarring and discolorations. Also I should note that I haven't had ANY breakouts in months, so these spots have lingered for awhile now. Any ideas about treatment
