  1. I currently have no acne on my face. It's smooth and clear. Last week i had a little lump on my cheek but it went away in two days. Perhaps it's all better because of my new regimen: clean and clear BP 10% during the morning, regular Clean and Clear facewash at night followed by Rentin A. It dries my skin after each wash but then oil returns but i have to say, my face isn't as oily as before the 2nd course of accutane AND DEFINITELY not as oily as before as the first time i used accutane.
  2. I'm 21 years old and I've had clear skin for most of my life. Even when I ate junk food. Never really got serious acne in high school and barely did anything to my face, just water and body moisturizer or baby oil. Then came university. i started getting these pimples with large whiteheads all around my central chin. It was bad, it always occurred in the same spots and continued to get worse. It was so frustrating. On top of of that it scarred really really badly. Now I'm left with a circular r
  3. Hi there. I'm currently on 30mg and have been for 3 months now, and was on 20mg and 10mg for the 3 months before. I'm going into my 7th month and I have a 10 day holiday at the end of August in Spain. I was wondering If anyone else had gone on a holiday or somewhere with a lot of sun whilst on accutane and if you stayed in the sun or just in the shade? Thanks Sean
  4. I have moderate/severe ance and combination skin and I've been on the regiment since January with no significant change (my acne has cleared up a little, but not as much as I had hoped). But anyway, I'm going to be working at a camp all summer and I want a low-maintenance skin care system--we're talking fast and simple, like a wash and a moisturizer. Any product suggestions?
  5. Hello everyone, so as you can probably tell from the title I'm a little upset right now... I'm really angry and I think you all here deserve to know why. Okay, so, it's June, and I'm planning to be spending a lot of time outside and in the sun, because summer just so happens to be my favorite season. In preparation for this, a few months ago, I was browsing this website looking for sunscreens, because I tend to burn pretty easily, and Benzoyl Peroxide makes it easier to burn, so I went to CVS in
  6. Which Season Is Worst for Acne?

    Study results on what season tends to coincide with more acne are a mixed bag: Four studies conclude that acne worsens during winter and improves in the summer Three studies conclude the opposite--that acne worsens during summer and improves in the winter Five studies conclude that there is no association between seasons and acne So, as we can see, it's too early to confidently confirm any answer to which season is worst for acne. However, slightly more evidence points...
  7. Today it's been worst weather for an acne sufferer,, Loooot's of sun whihc opens the pores, also the wind was blowing straight into my face, Totally a break out, going to see it. Also hot weather= Perspiration and heat= Bacne lot's more of it, the only thing that I'm positive about is we'll take a ride to the dead sea, and pamper myself in it's salty water and sunbathing that'll clear up my back, Yay for That. Love xoxo
  8. Same regimen. Morning 10% Clean and Clear Benzoyl peroxide. At night regular Clean and Clear face wash followed by Retin A. Results so far? My skin had been clear until this weekend when i got this cyst-like bump on my right cheek but it ended up turning into a small white head. It's going away but leaving a dark spot. That's it. I am grateful for how it is now but i'd rather not have any kind of blemish on my skin. The oil on my face is mild perhaps due to the warm weather and humidity but i
  9. since the weather where I live is getting hotter my skin is becoming ridiculously oily....thus causing more breakouts! I normally have oily skin but lately it just seams to keep getting worse....i cant even leave my moisturiser (oil free) on for very long anymore before having to wash it off as It isn't helping at all and makes me look too shiny....any help? Or do I just have to accept I can't control the weather lol xxx
  10. So hey guys, im back. I haven't been on acne.org since 2010? because my sudden adult acne had disappeared and my face looked well, pretty damn good for the past 4+ years. This winter though, it's come back and though not as severe as I've had it the first time, it's been very debilitating because I thought I was over it. Some background on me: I'm Asian, male, tan skin I'm 24 First broke out in severe adult acne consisting of nodules and purplish cysts back in 2008, starting around O
  11. Hey! I just thought I would ask if any of you experience a breakout at the start of summer? I find that since my skin isn't used to all the humidity and increased sweating that I always start of with a couple weeks of crappy skin until it adjusts... after that my skins usually the best out of all the other seasons. I just wanted to see if anyone else shares a similar experience (:
  12. Hey there! My name's Andrea, i'm 14, after countless tries of trying to clear up my acne in every holiday in time for school, I think i'm finally going to succeed this time! I have had acne since I was 11, it started of as one or two on my chin once in a while, but then before i knew it my entire left side was filled with horrible lumps and bumps , They had gotten infected too, and i was on antibiotics and penicillyn for a bit, the scars are still there, even though it's not quite as bad a
  13. So first thing I am male I heard there are Sunscreens with tan, so not regular white ones but bronze colour or something like that and that that could hide acne, is it true? If it is can anyone recommend some of those sunscreens ? Sry for bad English
  14. 19 years old--I just finished my freshman year of college. Virtually no acne throughout the year despite zero skin care, 5-6 hours of sleep a night, and *ahem* college festivities. But around finals I breakout...bad. When I come home for summer, I expect it to get better but it still got worse. That was May. Now it's July and my acne is very bad. I'll attach before/after pictures later. I have like no acne on the top 2/3 of my face but my jawline is very specifically riddled with acne. HELP. I
  15. Main Q: accutane in the summer? Hi all: I'm a 15 year old girl who is been going to a dermatologist since age of ten for mild persistent hormonal and genetic acne. I have been on literally every topical (epiduo, aczone, clindamycin, etc.) and oral medication (doxycyclin, minocyclin, etc,). I've also tried eating paleo and natural medications and nothing works. Right now I'm on epiduo, and 100 mg of minocyclin a day. I did a chemical peel two weeks ago and saw improvement after but now my ski
  16. I am a month and a half post accutane, i started surfing now in the summer and i am looking for a good face sunscreen that is water resistant. Does anyone have any advice's for a good sunscreen that doesn't clog pores and wont do any harm to the face? Thank you very much:)
  17. every spring and summer I seem to break out (I don't know if it's allergies but Benadryl doesn't help much). It seems more of a rash mixed with pimples considering most of the bumps on my face cannot be popped. It does not itch but it does feel tender when I wash my face. I used hydrocortisone which only worked a little before it stopped. Even prescription steroids didn't seem to help. I've used Nizoral shampoo as well (didn't work) and I'm currently on doxycycline and I'm using epiduo hoping to
  18. okay so like the past month something weird has been going on. I've had pretty mild acne for about a few years now but a month ago all breakouts i was having on my upper back disappeared and same for anywhere else except my forehead. like it seems like all my areas that would break out from time to time combined together and all went to my forehead. My body is 100% clear except for my forehead which is looking pretty shitty now. I don't get what's going on. before it was manageable because my br
  19. I've been using epiduo since January and it's worked on my face and back but lately my back has been driving me nuts from itchiness and tingling/stinging! I've had this before but it's particularly bad now and I can't help but scratch, which results in more stinging and unable to use epiduo because it burns the marks from my nails like crazy. It's getting hot now where I live and I've noticed slight itchy red patches on my arms as well as back that look most noticeable after showering. This has
  20. Hi all, I am looking for a sunscreen that goes on clear, absorbs quickly, does not clog pores, works with the regimen, lasts all day, and most of all, that protects my skin from the sun. There are so many mixed opinions about sunscreens, I am just very clueless as to what sunscreen to purchase, so if you have any suggestions for sunscreens that work for you, or that you've heard are good for acne sufferers\regimen users, PLEASE, PLEASE comment! I'm desperate for suggestions, thank you! - WS
  21. Is your acne worse in winter or summer? I've got quite clear skin now finally, but I'm afraid when winter comes and my skin will get more dry, I'll get more breakouts again do you notice a difference?
  22. Hi guys! I'm trying to solve one big acne mystery. I've been suffering from acne almost 10 years now (I am 23 years old now) and I have tried many things but nothing has helped. Over those years I have eliminated foods that are breaking me out like dairy, sugar(chocolate, sodas, sweets etc.), fried foods, potato chips, nuts, citrus fruit and processed meat (ham, salami...). These are foods that definitely worsen my skin condition. I have even tried for some time vegeterian diet as well as glut
  23. Surprisingly i haven't had a pimple in like a month. I had this tiny whitehead but it went away the same day. My regimen just includes washing my face with Clean and Clear 10% BP during the morning and at night with regular facewash and on random nights apply Retin A. My face is slightly oily but with summer winding down it's great to say that my face has been clear all summer. It would be great if this remains like this but one can never be too optimistic.
  24. 19 years old and just finished my freshman year of college. Throughout freshman year, I had virtually no acne. During finals, I was pretty stressed and my acne returned. But even when summer break started (early May) and I returned home several states away, my acne continued to get worse. Now in July, I still have pretty bad acne. What gives? If it matters, like 90% of the acne is around my jawline. I've also been on a routine for 3 weeks to no avail: Morning: Moisturizer lotion, then s
  25. Hy guys Im a male, 21yo and I started using the regimen two days ago and I am very excited I will finally get rid of my acne. I am going on summer vacation today for 1 month and I have a couple of questions for you. 1. What is your suggestion about being on the sun? Dan recommends only about 20 minutes a day. I will be on a business trip so it I could stay inside or something until 6pm. 2. Dan says that the face should be washed no more than 2 times a day, but I am planning on swimming twic
