  1. This year, I've become increasingly frustrated with my acne since it has started appearing more frequently in strange places - like my forearms, hands, fingers, and stomach. While in the past I put my acne concerns on the back burner, recent events have made fighting this acne a much higher priority. It's at least somewhat socially acceptable to have acne on the face - or on the back and chest - but not other weird places. It's just scary and frustrating to think that I might not have any c
  2. hey guys! it's been so long since i updated. retin a really does make your skin smooth but it has made mine shiny (bc my skin is now thin) but whatever i really dont mind. still not clear though but my acne has been SIGNIFICANTLY reduced. and it f idk if it's because of teh vitamins im taking (d3,a,zinc,niacin) or really because of retin a. anyway will update u guys if anything better happens. and when ppl say that retin a makes pimples go away fast, it really is legit. it's like it hastens pim
  3. feeling really discouraged right now because i'm getting a lot of negative feedback from a lot of users that i should stop retin a as it didn't do anything for them. switched brands just last week and i don't know if i'm breaking out because of that or i dont even know anymore my skin is really ugly right now. pimples everywhere, bumpy texture on my forehead, clogged and large pores, pustules,hyperpigmentation, scars (thank God i only have like one deep scar that the retin a can kind
  4. Hello Everyone! If anyone has been reading my blog thus far, you will know I have been on the regime (drugstore version) for about a month. I can honestly say that benzoyl peroxide is a very effective acne/blemish treatment - at a cost. The dryness, roughness and overall uneven skin texture is a trade off for fewer pimples and potentially clear skin. I found that my skin was so rough and uneven that it just didn't look great, even though I had fewer pimples and blemishes. Doing some research
  5. IMPORTANT: I no longer recommend Betaine Hydrochloride supplements. While I do believe they help people and they helped me as well, I think they are a short-term solution. The long-term solution to low stomach acid is to improve your overall health. One of the best things you can do is ingest natural sources of calcium such as Raw Organic Dairy and Canned Fish with Bones. Also get good sleep and reduce your stress. These were the most important changes I made to improve my stomach acid productio
  6. I got to tell people, i'v been using this product for the last 4 months. I'v had acne my whole life. I'm 33 years old. I also had alot of red marks from previous pimples. I'v tried Accutain, clindamycin and other products. They just seemed to dent my skin. They were just to strong for my skin. Right now, I'v been taking a Neutrogena cleanser, Dove toner without alcohol and the Neutrogena multi Vitamin Acne treatment. All I got to say, this Neutrogena multi Vitamin Acne treatment has got

    Vitamin A

    Does the juice from a vitamin A softgel, applied directly to a scar, help heal it?
  9. Hi everyone. I'm new to this site/forum and am about to start Dan's regimen. I used to be fairly clear but have recently broken out and have no idea why. Most of my pimples and their resulting red marks are on my cheeks above my line of shaving. At the moment, I have about 1-2 pimples and about 3-4 marks on each cheek and looking at them in the mirror really gets me depressed to the point where I don't want to go out until its clear. My plan is to follow Dan's regimen exactly using: *Pur
  10. Ive been using the regimen for a while now and it has eliminate alot of my acne. But the thing is that I still have red/brown marks from previous breakouts. The regimen, which is BP based, wont help these symptoms. I still have two pimples that I would like ot get rid of though. I was thinking if I should switch to the NEUTROGENA MULTI-VITAMIN Acne Treatment and the SKIN CLEARING MOISTURIZER. I read a post where people had success with these products getting rid of brown and red marks. S
  11. :D/ What I've discovered. . . I've been on a mission to get rid of acne, prevent further scarring, and get rid of current acne scars. I have spent a lot of time researching ideas and trying various things. I am still looking for better and improved methods. The follow is what I've discovered so far: 'Age-Less Skin Formula' by Bluebonnet made my skin look wonderful, radiant, and gave an overall glow. Take one capsule daily. It did absolutely nothing for acne but I liked what it
  12. / Hey people...The other day I just so happened to walk into a gas station and buy a bottle of Fuze Vitaboost. I looked on the back with all the vitamin info and it contained lots of vitamin A, C, and E...plus Selenium. The description with it was something like "Works with vitamin E to become a powerful antioxidant and reduces scarring." so im like hey and buy a couple bottles. I then start to notice my scars fading, only after drinking like 5 bottles of this stuff! Which brings me to my curr
  13. This is kind of a 2 part question. I just bought Vitamin A and they are 8,000 I.U. (whatever that means) and I was wondering how much I should take? Also, I remember reading about someone using sea salts because of the healing power of the ocean. What do you think about mixing warm water and sea salts in my sink and using a facecloth and letting it sit on my skin for a little while? thanks.
  14. Hey guys ... listen its been around 3 months or something now since ive been off accutane ... can i start taking those Cod liver oil tablets ... which have vitamin A & D in them? Or do i have to wait some more time before starting vitamin A ... as far as i think the "NOT TO EAT VIT A" warning is when ure ON accutane right? Thanks for the help! CheerS!
  15. It says: "Apply a thin layer of the treatment all over clean face. Leave on all day. A moisturizer may follow, if needed. At night, wash face with gentle cleanser...." So you wash your face with water and clean, then apply this lotion on your face and leave it on throughout the whole day. Then at night you wash it off and apply it again and sleep with it. Next morning wash it off, apply again for whole day... you get the idea. Is that how you use this? I am extremely interested in using
  16. I know you're supposed to take a B complex when taking large amounts of B5. Would a multi-vitamin be good enough?
  17. I saw this on the vitamin aisle the other day, on the package it says "for healthy skin" i was just wondering if anyone used this. ps. no more B5 threads
  18. Denise, I have read that you are using retin a micro .1%, did you start off using that or the lower dosage? I have read that you have had alot of success with super cp and retin a micro. I have been using reg. cp and a form of vitamin a on my skin and I have seen results. I am running out of my vitamin a and thought I might try micro retinA but wasnt sure which % to go on first? Can you please give me your personal regimen?? I also do lactic every 10 days and my skin seems pretty t
  19. hey! alright.. so i've been on this 3 topical creams:vitamin A,fucidic acid(antibiotic cream), and enrythromycin lotion. it has been working good but i've been on them since june 3rd, so it's been almost 5 months. i feel like i can put as much on as i want to and will have no side effects at all. do you think that since i've been on it for so long my skin will start not reacting to it at all? do you think i should get a higher percentage of my creams?

  24. I followed the acne.org regimen (gentle wash/BP/Moisturizer in Morning and Evening) for months without much success...I kept breaking out with new active lesions nearly every day even with multiple fingers worth of 2.5% BP in the morning and multiple fingers of BP again in the evening. I eventually quit the regimen and got worse. After studying many of the posts here, I decided to modify the Regimen and I quickly CLEARED in about 1 week and have stayed reasonably clear for 6 weeks now! (I sa
