  1. Hey kids. So I just finished week 3/started week 4. And I'm still pretty pleased w the results of the regimen! As a reminder I'm using 1/3 fingers length of bp twice a day, with dans cleanser and Cerave moisturizer twice a day too. I also just started my 3rd month of the bc pill Trinessa... I try and wear as little makeup as possible. Some Clinique concealer under the eyes and on any zits usually makes me half presentable for a day at work. But I'd like to start trying maybe adding a primer
  2. Hard to imagine this was the end result. This is what dedication can bring!
  3. So this is my first entry, and I think I should start with who I am. Maybe this will help you relate and maybe stuff that helps me will help you! So I'm a 21 year old girl with not too severe acne but enough acne to lower my self-esteem. My journey so far: I had baby skin throughout puberty. Like. My skin was epic. Beautiful. Made from the gods. Okay, maybe not that good but you get the picture. And then it slowly said "F you UnspoiledDude, F you!" and changed into this mess of a skin.
  4. My acne story started about 20 years ago. At first it was teenage acne that I treated with advertised product - ointment with 20% azelaic acid. It was semi OK - nothing too special, but it worked reasonably well and I do not remember bigger issues, apart of dehydration, and that it did not remove everything totally. Begin age 18: I started uni and tried the birth control pills. Did nothing for acne, but some nasty side effects. Dropped. Still semi reasonable - not clear skin, but not too ba

    My Acne Story

    Hello there! I thought I'd start off my blog with an introduction into how I (unfortunately) got acne, and my experience thus far, with it. I'm 1/4 Polish, and my mother and everyone I ever knew used to tell me how lucky I was to have inherited my father's clear, poreless Slavic skin. At 14, I thought nothing of these comments, 'clear skin's no big deal' I would say, but I think I speak for all of us when I say how wrong I was. I first starting showing signs of spots at around 15, which is f
  6. I probably won't post in this blog very much, but I wanted to share my journey with everyone and have my whole story in one place so people know where i'm coming from. My battle with acne started years ago, probably when I was 11 or 12. I hit puberty early (I was 9) so I got to go through the awkward phase even sooner than most. Yay! I started out with the typical solutions to acne- when you're 11, mom says 'Just wash your face and you'll grow out of it soon enough'. When it became apparent
  7. Hi everyone, i'm a 16 year old girl. l've been fighting this battle for going on 5 years. The reason i'm starting this blog is because i've spent hours and hours reading people's stories, and watching Youtube videos. l hope my story will help someone else. SOME HISTORY: My mom never had a problem with her skin. My dad on the other hand had severe cystic acne on his nose, jaw line, arms, chest, and back. ( He still gets huge cysts sometimes from stress.. ) WHEN IT STARTED: l started gett
  8. Hey everyone, recently started searching all about acne since I've had a very bad breakout about 3 months ago so I thought I'd share my story. First off I'm 19 years old and male, have oily skin and huge pores which I inherited from my mom. All throughout high school from grades 8-12 I thought my acne was really bad with around 4-5 zits around my forehead and my temples. In reality it was just me freaking out because everyone around me had perfect skin. I did use benzol peroxide 0.05% or 5% i
  9. I'm a Vet! (2400 users online) This will be my last topic for a long time. I only do topics if I feel necessary, but I'ma chill on that stuff for now. So, I'm not trying to kiss acne.org's or ass or anything, but I was surprised to see no one created a topic like this before. Acne.org has done so much for me and others over the years. Two people even met and got married on it! So I just wanted to create this out of appreciation, and for everyone to share their stories on how this web
  10. Hello anyone who reads this! I am 16 and took accutane back in 2013, finished my first course in the August. It did wonders to my skin - changed my life. But of course it came with side effects, I think mine were quite serious. I will now tell you the journey briefly and would extremely appreciate any guidance given to what I should do next. I began accutane on 10mg in the February of 2013, everything was absolutely fine apart from the dryness and slight lower back pain - nothing was se
  11. Hi guys! Literally just signed up but thought I would tell my story and perhaps you guys can give advice. I got acne about 1 and a half years ago, i'm now 17. I had been taking minocycline since the beginning of February this year and by June my skin was getting fairly clear and I felt more confident apart from a few marks but they would fade. I was using exfoliator, moisturiser, taking vitamins, drinking water and eating healthier. Before that time (and sort of during) I had a lot of anxiety

    So week 13, it's gone quick. Ill be finish in 2 months according to derm! Positive experience all round. Symptons havent been as extreme as i anticipated.

But my skin in flawless except from odd spots i mean 1 or 2. Still have lots of scars but no bumpy oily spotty skin. Skin isn't dry. Just not exactly oily. I

Eating Habits COMPLETELY cut out soda and any sugary drink (occasional orange juice) COMPLETELY cut out dairy (almost, i love milk and cheese) lol COMPLETELY cut out frozen foods COMPLETELY cut out desserts Daily Routine Wash face with Clean and Clear 10% benzol peroxide wash (morning) Apply Neutrogena 2.5% benzol peroxid

    My Acne Past

    Sooo...today is the day that I decide to create a blog of my acne experience. I'm doing this to tell other people what will or won't help me over the next months (6-12 months), and to help me keep track of my progress. Another reason was because I couldn't find answers to many questions through a plethora of google searches (such as when your face gets through the purging stages of stopping benzoyl peroxide cold turkey). Let me start off with my acne story... The earliest I can remember h
  15. I'm writing this post so that I can keep track of my progress and begin my attempt on the caveman regimen. I've never had acne my entire life. I'm 19 and I never struggled with acne ever, I would get compliments constantly on my effortless, flawless skin constantly. In February of this year I had my first ever break out and freaked the hell out, I didn't understand what was going on... When I look back now I actually only got my first ever pimple, it was so tiny and completely unnoticeable but i
  16. Hi all, I registered here on acne.org to share with you my Acne story and to help others who suffering under this burden. Until the age of 20 I had the prettiest skin, flawless you can say I was full of confidence and dated the hottest guys in the clubs. But when I turned 20, Acne came over me, it was like a curse. I developed nasty cysts all over my face, they were very deep and created disgusting bumps on my face which were impossible to cover up with makeup, not to mention the redne
  17. First, I want to say that I hope nothing but the best for those going through the tough acne stage. I've been there before, and it's not easy for sure. For those of you who would like to add on or share anything, feel free to do so. I would gladly appreciate it. I want to share my personal experience to you all, hoping that it will be of some help. Here is my story. I am a 16 year old male and I had pretty severe acne as a kid growing up. At the moment I'm still going through puberty, and
  18. I am now currently 18 years old and graduating high school next month. I started developing, most got slapped across and straight in the face with acne in the beginning of 6th grade. Now, 6th grade was extremely different than it is now. Hardly any girls wore make up. It was only worn for those little school dances. Unfortunately, I felt like I had to wear cover up/concealer/foundation at the age of 11 or 12. Ever since then I have been struggling and struggling with acne for years. At one po
  19. Dealing with the emotional side effects of having bad skin This time last year I couldn't look my Dad in the eye, my skin was the worst it had ever been and my confidence rapidly shattered. I couldn't bare the pain of waking up each and every morning, walking into the bathroom, not turning the light on, looking into the mirror and having to look at my acne-ridden skin. Some days were better than others, some days there would be no new heads and like most days I would see a cluster of new pust
  20. Hi everyone so my name is Michael, I'm 15 years old from Canada and I suffer from nodular cystic acne. So for those of you who dont know what it is, nodular cystic acne is a severe form that happens deep within the skin (i think in the dermis), that is almost always painful and leaves acne marks! It's basically solid inflamed lesions on the skin that sometimes have white heads. I've personally been struggling with acne since grade 7, I'm only in grade 11 though but it's been a struggle both phys
  21. Disclaimer: This is probaly just a boring long post but I just wanted to share my story. Sorry for any English mistakes. Also, if this post is in the wrong forum/place then I am sorry, please move it to the correct one if possible. Hello, I rarely post here but I've been lurking for a while when searching for questions about my acne, I just want to share my own story of how my acne went from okay to the worst point of my life (today). I'm a currently a 16 year old boy and I know that is st
  22. hey everybody I've never posted anything on a forum before and I probalby won't after this but i really felt I had to share this info with other people and I'm hoping maybe it might just help someone out, make their day a lil better... And sorry for all the typo and grammatical mistakes i might do, I'm really not the writing type. Anyway so what i would like to share is my frustrating, depressing experince i had with a "blackhead scar or pimple scar" i got over the la two weeks and lik
  23. Sorry, this is going to be a bit lengthy... (I would post pics but at this time I just don't have the courage). I've had every type of acne you could think of since I was around 14-15 years old. I didn't think much of it at first, but it got worse, and got worse and worse. I finally had enough so I went to the dermatologist when I was 17, and within a few months I was on accutane. Having all this acne ruined me as a person. I use to talk to people and go out and have fun, but it changed comple
  24. Hi my name is Brady, Im 15 years old and tomorrow I start accutane or roaccutane as they call it here in AUS, I'll be keeping you updated probably from day to day, but 1st I'll just share my journey, so i have had very mild acne like 1-3 pimples since I was 13, but this year I started to get really bad acne, like i have/had two huge cystic acne pimples on my cheeks for a month now and they are disgusting, they have been less inflamed lately because of this table called SONE but as far as I'm awa
