  1. Here's a little background about me, I'm 17 years old, female and have suffered with acne for over 5 years now since I was 12 and a half years old. I've always had acne on my cheeks and a bit on my forehead. The forehead looked much worse until I quit eating too much dairy (milk, ugh!) a year and a half ago. Right now my forehead is pretty okay except for the random pimples and bumps. I also make sure my dandruff is under check as that's also a contributing factor to my forehead acne. I'd been t
  2. I went to a beauty salon today to get my whiteheads extracted. I know that with proper equipments, you can do it at home, but I was so worried that I'd make mistakes and make my face look even worse. The lady at the salon really hurt the hell out of me. She managed to get those white heads out of my skin, but afterwards my face is covered with red angry marks that sting like a mofo. She told me that I produce too much oil, and the way to deal with it is to keep it moisturized - like I don't alre
  3. Please answer the week 3 poll! WEEK 2 RECAP By day 15, the breakout i got a few days before was beginning to show sign of improvement, but not fast enough. On day 16, my birthday, my skin improved greatly. Still very red but no big active pimples anymore. On Day 17-18 i saw further improvement and i concluded that the breakout was over. I think/hope that was my initial breakout. By day 19-20 i noticed my skin getting a little dry again. There was on scaley
  4. I have been battling pimples my entire adult life. But for the last 14 months I have been experiencing the worst acne of my life. This time there is something different, this acne is more persistent. In my future blog posts you will read about my history with acne medications, birth control pills, treatments, ointments, the list goes on. I was recently diagnosed with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, which I will elaborate on in another post. But for my first entry, I thought I would discus

    Day 9

    So, I don't know if it is my initial breakout or if it is because I haven't been on my antibiotic for a couple of weeks now, but my skin is crazy broken out! Everyday I have sooo many whiteheads all over my chin and above my upper lip! Crazy! (and quite stressful) BUT I guess this is what happens before things get better. Only time will tell! How's everyone else out there doing on there Accutane journey?!

    Well I used Differin the other night! I followed the instructions to a T and made sure i used the 'pea sized' amount that everyone recommends. I was expecting my face to burn up but it actually felt ok, maybe because I put it on straight after moisturising. My face felt no different the next day, or the day after.. However, after showering today, I used my Clarisonic (delicate head) as advised by my derm) and my face felt so raw after, especially around my left cheek bone where I was starting to
  7. It's been almost a month since my last entry. Unfortunately, my skin has gone worse. It has been incredibly frustrating to be in this position and I am seriously starting to get a little bit depressed. not too serious. But serious enough that I would avoid seeing anyone else but my boyfriend. It doesn't help that my family (mum especially) scrutinizes my face every single day. I remember one day we were at the dining table and for a good 20 minutes, we talked about my acne. I am on oral med
  8. I just need to say, WOW, my skin was flaky yesterday. I have no idea what happened. I washed my face and flakes came off on my towel! I could've peeled so much of my face off. It was weird, but I suppose it's better to let some layers shed and keep my skin as fresh as possible. Gotta get all of the rest of that buried acne out of there! Speaking of such, I'm very irked by a cluster of bumps under my skin on my problem cheek. The other side of my face is SO much clearer, what's going o
  9. This morning, I woke up to no new forming pimples, and even better, diminished whiteheads. I was so pleased to see that the popped whiteheads from yesterday healed pretty well, and it doesn't look like they'll be coming back. Thank goodness. The papule near my nose has also shrunk a bit, which is great. I just want to be able to wear makeup today without looking like a bumpy toad. My skin is still extremely dry and flaky, but I'm proud of this progress! This is one of those days on the
  10. Well, I freaked out yesterday, but it looks like my skin is back to progressing. Most of the areas that were popped yesterday are either now red marks or smaller whiteheads, which I'm fine with. It could've been worse! Of course, my skin is also back to its insanely dry, red, and burning routine. Applying the BP is never bad, but for some reason when I put on the 2 pumps of moisturizer (and 5-6 drops of jojoba now ) my skin starts freaking out and stinging like mad. It definitely needs
  11. Okay. I just need to vent a little here. I apologize in advance. WHY is my skin doing this? The initial clearing was absolutely a tease. There's this decently-sized red bump on my cheek and whiteheads on both my forehead and cheeks. This is so uncool. I have to admit that yes, my skin is getting less inflamed and these breakouts will heal like the rest, but goodness this is saddening. Especially without the aid of face makeup. I can't stop looking at my skin. Look at my photo
  12. Bare with me. Its a long story over 8-10 years of knowledge but I hope this helps someone. #Skin RE-CLOGGING ITSELF endlessly My acne slowly slowly started when I was 12 and atm im 22 (first with bumps and pus filled ones and at 20 years oled they were deep big under skin cysts- it was a stressful time w bad relationship/ I ate very much processed food and oils and dairy). At 16 I was on birth control for half a year which didnt help acne and my whole body hated it (depression, low energy, br
  13. Hey, guys! I know it's been forever since I've updated on these forums. I'm super happy to say that I mostly have my adult acne under control. However, I definitely still get hormonal breakouts every month. They never get too bad anymore, but honestly that's because I've finally found out how to properly spot treat whiteheads! So, I found this product called Dots. They're hydrocolloid blemish patches that you're supposed to put on before you go to bed and sleep with them. So, that's what I di

    Update

    Hey everyone, It's been a long time since I updated my blog. It's not like my skin is perfectly cleared but it's manageable. I mean, lately, I have been picking my whiteheads. I know I shouldn't but I have this really bad habit of wanting to squeeze it out every time they appear on my face. Trust me, they are pretty much all scattered around my cheek and chin area. BIG MISTAKE! Two or three of them actually inflamed and they became three red inflamed pimples on my face. I've been applying
  15. Hey, lovely people! My name is Alex and I decided that to keep up my spirits/track my progress/meet other people with acne I should start a blog! So ... here I go! For the past four years I have been following Accutane blogs on this site and trying to deal with my persistent moderate/severe acne by going on countless topicals/prespcription meds/antibiotics etc. Needless to say, they haven't worked and so when my skin began scarring I switched dermatologists. My new derm has prescribed me 40mg
  16. Hey, I’m 14 years old supposedly struggling with hormonal acne. I’ve got spots and blackheads on my forehead, acne scars on my cheeks, whiteheads and blackheads on my nose and clogged pores pretty much everywhere. I’ve considered using AHA and BHA peels by The Ordinary as I’ve heard chemical peels really benefit your skin. I was wondering if they really work or if they make things worse. Has anyone tried chemical peels or are there alternatives?
  17. So I’ve struggled with acne all my life but after accutane my acne cleared up and only got the odd few spots here and there (nothing crazy) then a couple of days ago out the blue my chin started to go crazy? I don’t know what this is, or what’s causing it. I changed my cleanser to the Botanincal Lab. clay mask and a nip and fab moisturiser and wasn’t sure if that’s what’s caused it? Is this this an example of purging? Whiteheads? Balckheads? I really don’t know! If anyone could offer ad
  18. I’ve been using African black soap for a month now too. When can I expect to see results if it works?
  19. I've struggled with these blackhead like bumps on my forehead for a long time and I need help! I have white heads and black heads along my chin and whiteheads on my cheeks. Especially on the one side I have huge pores that are bumpy. Please help me! Anything that might help. I sometimes break out and get puss pimples.
  20. I’m 16 years old and I’ve had cystic acne, acne, blackheads and whiteheads for the past 3 years. It’s left my skin a bit dull looking and full of hyperpigmentation. (Also I should say, I drink enough water, I don’t eat diary, and I exersice 5 times a week. My diet/lifestyle is not the cause.) Last year I discovered that if I double cleanse with coconut oil my cystic acne and most of my little pimples disappear completely. I did that for 2-3 months until I had to travel for a week and I couldnt
  21. Hello everyone! I know long post... please give it a read?:) Ok, so I’ve been reading this forum form or years. You all seem to be very educated and know what you’re talking about when it comes to acne. I’m really hoping there’s someone that can give me some advice or suggestions for my acne. So backstory... had acne since 13, mostly just whiteheads and some pastuels on my forehead. Never on the lower half of my face where the hormonal acne “should be”. That bothered me so very much t
  22. I did a blackhead extraction myself, which i know is fucking stupid and I hate myself for doing it, because now it looks like my skin is scarring. The areas where I was the most rough was on my forehead, nose and chin, and they are now a week later still really tight, and showing signs of scabbing. When I wrinkle my skin, the dead(?) scarred(?) skin looks weird. I've tried giving the areas lots of moisture, washing it less and with the outmost care, and nothing helps. The areas keep wrinkling we
  23. Hi my name is Arizona, i’m 17. I’ve had these very tiny (thousands it seems) of bumps on my forehead, around my nose, nose, chin, nose bridge, etc. I’ve tried everything. It looks so horrible, i don’t even take selfies anymore or any pictures close up to my face because it looks bad. it has really lowered my self esteem. I don’t have acne and i don’t get acne: it’s not acne, it’s just bumps. It’s not red white black or any specific color, they don’t hurt, i don’t pick at them, they’re just there
  24. Hey guys, you are my last chance. I am desperate with this condition, haven't had so bad acne. Please does somebody have experience with this type of skin? What are these tiny little zits all around my face???
  25. Hey guys. I'm new here. Anyways, as most of you-- I basically tried EVERYTHING there is to offer in the market but nothing ever worked for me. Ever since I was 10 (which was when I first started having my periods and now I'm 19 nearly 20), I was already experiencing acne breakouts. My mom would send me to the best dermatologist every Saturday in my city 'til I was 13. Constant extraction from the doc. Constant shit on my face and it would never ever stop! So my dermatologist then suggested Ac
