    4th week on Yasmin

    The first month is over (: It's my first day on my stop week after 21 pills. My skin is still the same, haven't noticed any major improvements of my blemishes. In the last 2 weeks I've only gotten a few big pimples on my forehead. On my cheeks are still the blemishes from my initial breakout. I'm starting today with a new skincare product, Paula's choice 2% BHA lotion. It claims to brighten up my post acne marks. Hopefully it will do his job. Overall it was a good first month and I hope my perio
  2. From the album: My journey and progress

    Almost all my scars are gone and almost completely clear. This is a miracle.
  3. I’ve just completed my fourth week on 30mg of roaccutane. I have my dermatologist appointment tomorrow morning so I might do an extra post about that afterwards to share what was discussed. My symptoms are much of the same but because I haven’t reacted that badly to the 30mg (at least I don’t think I have) I have a feeling she’s going to up my dose. Things are about to get interesting. Not in this blog post though, sorry. Day 22 Thursday10th August Overall my skin is good, I kee

    End Of Week 4

    Hello All, Week 4 on 40mg is done and dusted and I'm proud to say that things are looking up ! Big cysts have gone (I won't lie, when the bugger eventually popped...it was not pretty..) - they have left a dark mark, but these will fade in time, patience is a virtue. My face is SO SMOOTH, it's wonderful ! Once again, no major side effects, skin elsewhere on my body is fine, hands not dry really. Just lips and eyes that I struggle with, but just have to keep the drops and balm on me AT
  5. I just started week 4 on the regimen and I am completely and utterly discouraged. Not only has my acne gotten worse since I have started the regimen, but it is the worst it has ever been in my life. I dealt with the dryness and the flakes for the first three weeks, but all I have no is just huge, painful, red, inflamed pimples that are overtaking my left cheek, left jawline, and right chin/jawline area. I know that I just need to stick with it because it has to get worse before it gets better, b
  6. I'm just ending my first week of The Regimen.. My skin cleared up slightly when I first started but starting purging recently. I had 5 hard cysts on my cheek before starting, and they're still there. I was wondering how long hard cysts on your cheeks normally take to heal / flatten / disappear when on the regimen. I known everyone is different, but I'm just wondering what everyone else's experiences were with cysts while on The Regimen? Help please.
  7. I'm nearing the end of week four and my skin is making loads or progress. Everything on my chin besides the one deep pimple is flat and healing redness. With makeup on it looks barely even noticible! I've noticed a large reduction in peeling in many places except where my problem area are - mostly my chin and the center of my forehead. This is good news as every time it peels, it gets smoother and less red. I let it peel for as long as I can and exfoliate about twice a week. Forehead is still pu
  8. Ughhhh this breakout is killing me. Mostly centered on my chin and the center of my forehead. Luckily I have bangs so that's not too much of an issue, but the chin is bad- I even gave into picking so now it's just one big scab and one large under the skin type noduole, along with a whole lot of redness which contrasts my pretty pale skin. I'm determined to let the scab heal on its own and NOT pick it prematurely at all, even if it means awful makeup application, so hopefully when it peels that w
  9. Yesterday afternoon the dry lips really kicked in. I feel like I am putting lip balm on all day. I have a painful split down one side which really hurt yesterday evening. Very happy with Estee Lauder double wear coverage. A couple of people have commented that my skin looks nice. If only they saw me without the foundation.
  10. From the album: The Regimen

    New cyst on left side, & a fairly old cyst on right side eyebrow. This picture was taken right after bp, so that's why there is so much redness. Definitely not perfect but I can see some improvement. (trying to stay positive!!!)
  11. Ahhhhh this breakout is killing me. However, all of my closed comedones are now healed! I would say that just in a few days, my forehead and around my top lip is about 80% clear. I can also tell that there doesn't seem to be as many clogged pores or "under the skin" bumps, giving me hope that once this all clears up it will stay that way. It just needs to get it all out now so that it can be clear and stay clear! The bad part about he beginning of this week though is my chin which is my normal p
  12. After SO much debating whether the cost would be worth it to try I finally took the dive and purchased the Regimen in early July. I have been dealing with painful cystic acne on both my cheeks (though my left cheek was remarkably worse) and my chin. Occasionally my forehead would join the party and sprout a couple angry red bumps throughout the month, too. My acne began 8 years ago after the birth of my daughter. I was lucky as a teenager to have great skin, the occasional pimple, and I didn't
