  1. I've about had it with my acne, i have moderate to severe acne. I get the whole galore, cysts, white heads, clogged pores the whole shebang. My problem is that i freak out and try all these products that aggravate my face even more and its a mess and i end up losing and my face being even worse than before. I feel ugly because my skin never wants to stay clear. I dont want to go on anymore prescriptions and use any drugstore products that just dry my skin out more. I have oily skin and its a lit
  2. Hi all, A little background of myself: I am 30 years old and I have been suffering from Severe to mild acne since i was 15 years old. My first time ever going to a dermatologist for medicine was about 2 years ago and he prescribed me epiduo with doxycycline and it took a year for my acne to clear up, but I never got rid of blemishes and some scars around my face. After I cleared up, I stopped using the medicine and I broke out again after 2 months and now I went to a different doctor and he in
  3. Hey guys! Due to recent success with my newly formulated regime I wanted to share it with others so that maybe they could benefit. Obviously as we all know by now there isn't exactly one thing that works for everybody. I am 20 years old now and finally found what works for me and my answer was: thyme! And a few other select all natural ingredients that are affordable and all can be found in your local grocery store. I have tried BP (Proactive) and other acne products (Clean & Clear, St. Ive
  4. Where to start?... I have just come off Accutane in March and now I am back to square 1, I have spots again. I have since tried Vitamin D3 at 3200iu a day for 4 months, Zinc 45mg a day for over a year, Vitamin C 1000mg a day for over a year. I am now trying witch hazel with 600mg dispersible aspirin as a toner am and pm. I got the idea from acne.org, this website has been so helpful to me with such a wealth of information, the best thing is that the information comes direct from pe
  5. Can Witch Hazel Help Acne?

    Witch Hazel and Its Potential for Healing The Bottom Line How to Use It Witch Hazel and Its Potential for Healing Witch hazel (Hamamelis virginiana) is a shrub native to eastern North America. For centuries, Native Americans treated a variety of medical conditions with pastes and water that contained extracts of the bark and leaves of the witch hazel plant. The pharmaceutical industry first commercialized witch hazel water in the late 1800s, and modern manufacturers of skin care products...
  6. Hello Everyone, i am new here and have been on the regimen for a solid 2 months. i have seen some results, but really am not happy with the results i've been having. i've been wondering if i can incorporate Witch Hazel into my regimen, which is Dan's products. i've heard amazing things about Witch Hazel, and i've had Dickinson's witch hazel for a very long time just sitting in my cabinet, because it was my cousin's and he just left a full bottle here. PLEASE can anyone tell me where i can incorp
  7. I went into a new dermotolgist office for my adult cystic acne. I mostly get acne on the jawline, upper neck, sides of face. I've been on ampicillin and tretinoin (retinoid) before for a couple of months. The ampicillin did wonders but now I feel I shouldn't take any antibiotics because of stomach issues. I don't want to kill off any more good backterial. I tried continuing the tretinoin after I weened myself off of ampicillin and it just caused more break outs - this time more cystic. I'm n
  8. So it's been 2 weeks and 1 day since I started roaccutane and, I'm not going to lie, it has been really really hard. The last 2 weeks my skin broke out to the worst it has ever been. My confidence was rock bottom and I felt no amount of make up could help the situation as the texture of my skin was awful due to the dry skin caused by the accutane. I kept thinking, "nothing is going to work, I'm going to have this acne forever". As much as I'd like to post a photo to share, I'd be way too ne
  9. It's difficult to say that sometimes, and especially harder to mean it. But we are our own worst critics and we have to give ourselves compliments now and then and look past the acne or post-acne marks. Progress is progress, and that's all you can hope for. You also must acknowledge that acne does NOT control your life by any means. Who cares if you have a few "imperfections," you look good! I try to keep my regimen as SIMPLE and NON-IRRITATING as possible. That being said, I use a clean
  10. Quick History: So around age 24 (I'm 26 now) I started breaking out all over my face but mostly in my chin and jaw region. I was a pescetarian at the time (vegan now) and although my skin wouldn't completely clear with diet alone I did notice that if I stopped eating sugar, drinking alcohol, and avoided white breads that it wouldn't be *as* bad. I started using the regimen and eating lots of fruits and my skin started to clear up. About 8 months into the regimen my skin was clear with the
  11. Hey, I just wanted to share some of the success I've been having with witch hazel. I've been using it for around 2 months and wanted to wait before recommending it because I wanted to check that it's not a temporary measure. Just a bit of back story: I've had acne since I was about 13 so going on 9 years now, I've been prescribed antibiotics which didn't noticeably affect my acne and then went onto use Yasmin birth control, which has reduced the frequency of my breakouts. I've also had consi
  12. So I've had severe constant acne for years now, & i recently discovered Witch Hazel after researching it for awhile and thought, "why not?" Its so cheap, and it is a natural product so you dont have to worry about it being bad for your skin! It has done WONDERS for my acne, and my skin overall! It has cleared up my acne AND hyper pigmentation a bit, and just makes my face look so nice. I would def try it! Its so worth the try. Dont give up on acne!
  13. hey, ive got off of a 4 months 40mg accutane about 3-4 months ago. my skin is pretty clear, i still get some little whiteheads some time tho, but they usually go away fast. i started used witch hazel recently on my forehead, i had a couple of little pimples there and on my nose, the 2 oily part of my face, t-zone classic problem. i also switched from neutrogena 15 FPS oil free moisturizer to the combination skin one. the fps made my skin greasy. i noticed my forehead has quite gone
  14. I've used this product for several months now and feel it has cared well for my skin. The witch hazel has helped major breakouts at bay and the exfoliating properties help refresh skin. Pros: Leaves skin feeling clean, toned, refreshed. Helped prevent major breakouts. Kind to skin. Cons: Can be quite pricey, may only show improvement on mild acne. Recommend? Yes. This product has really helped care for my skin these past couple of months.
  15. Hello Girls, Just touching base on my journey. So far so good. I have continued doing the daily/ nightly routine as well as including the 'Witch Hazel Face Pads' within the routine. Honestly, having this product as a toner has been a God send. It makes my face feel refreshed and clean. I put it over/ under everything I do with my face. For example, after I wash my face, I cleanse my face the 'Witch Hazel Face Pads' and then continue the rest of my routine. As well as this, before I put on my
  16. Hey Girls, Hope you're all well. STRESS is the key factor to large pimples!! I've finally noticed this a great deal. Those last couple of weeks before I wrote my last blog (BLOG TEN), I had various blind pimples (will also discuss later in the blog the best way to remove them), and I am almost certain it was due to stress. I had mountains of work to do for university which was causing me soooo much stress...resulting in pimples. Another way that I have realised that stress is definitely re
  17. I was pretty upset yesterday.. my skin was ultra irritated and washing my face at the end of the night was something from a horror film. Everywhere I put any sort of product was red and spotty. Then this morning I came to accept that it was ultimately getting better.. the weird breakouts (I'm sure it's the purging stage) around my mouth are mostly clear and everything looks calmer. It takes a while to see results, I keep telling myself. I think I will stick with this kit until the end
  18. Are Aftershaves Safe to Use on Acne-Prone Skin?

    Aftershaves are liquid products applied to the skin after shaving. A good aftershave should perform two main functions: Antiseptic: Disinfects nicks and cuts you might get while shaving Soothing: Calms irritation in the skin While an aftershave can feel "refreshing" after a shave, some ingredients in some aftershaves might cause problems for people with acne. For this reason, it is best to first get your acne under complete control before adding an aftershave to your daily regimen. Once...
  19. I have been battling acne for years and I can say with just a bit of confidence that I think I have finally found the balance for my face. I am on doxycycline twice a day, tazorac at night, sulfacetamide and sulfur cream in the morning, and I cleanse with a tea tree oil soap and apply witch hazel using noxema salicylic acid pads 3 times a day. I am also on several supplements. This has kept my face mostly clear for a while now. It's not perfect but it's to a point that I can live with and no
  20. Went on some acne for the first time ever last night and worked pretty well! Definitely increased inflammation and redness, killed itching and has now just left me with flat pigmentation scarring. For £3 it's deffo worth trying!!! Nai xx
  21. Hi, I am a long time reader of this forum and this is my first time actually joining and posting. I have had mild to moderate acne for about 15 years now. uggg. I am now 30 bout to be 31 and i guess now i am going to have to live with the fact that i will have it forever. When i was younger i always thought it would go away with age but no luck here. Anyway, to the point. I have very oily skin, especially my nose. Im talking after shower or just rinse my face i can start to see the puddles of oi

    Witch Hazel

    I use witch hazel on cotton wool balls to remove make up or to refresh skin in the morning. Its 'spot-fighting properties' supposedly can help towards breakouts, keeping them clean and (hopefully!) reducing them. Pros: Leaves clean, soft feeling skin. Is said to help improve spots. Removes make up well. Is very gentle. Cons: Haven't really seen improvements on my skin, but certainly no breakouts. Recommend? No. Although this is a gentle, natural cleanser and toner, one which really does
  23. My acne is really bad and I'm sort of at a loss, nothing really helps. But I'm trying a new skincare routine and it seems to keep breakouts at bay, I'm gonna stick with it for a while. I'll be honest: I never used to drink water. Like ever. But—my skin was always fine until I was about 17. I'm 18 now so my acne's been really bad for like a year now and it makes me really depressed. Really, really depressed I'm sure yall on here understand that... It's all I think about when I'm talking to pe
  24. Hello. I am 20 years old and have suffered from acne for a very long time. I finally decided to go on accutane and completed my course about 8/9 months ago. I thought that was going to cure me for good. But unfortunately, it came back. I don't know what to do anymore. I have tried so much. Antibotics seem to help a little, but I don't want to be on them forever. I have recently tried drinking apple cider vinegar which also seems to help a little, but not as much as I would hope. I was wondering
  25. Hi guys! So I've had acne since I was like 13. I'm 16 now, and last summer my skin was really clear! Weird lighting but it was clear except for a few VERY small scars that I didn't mind or really notice. This was the case pretty much throughout the summer, I even went camping and only suffered one zit that went away normally! I was so happy. The school started back up and I started to break out very gradually until now, this summer, where I'm basically back to square 1. I have pretty much fo
