  1. So one month of the AHA and Retinol usage has come to pass. I haven't missed any applications and I'm feeling good about my decisions to do this. I'm still not sure what kind of results I'm seeing, nor am I confident I will ever be rid of the pitted/rolling acne scars or the occasional break out. But! I will definitely take softer skin, less turn around between pimple appearances, and a somewhat more even skin tone of that happens to be what I get out of it. My mother, who anyone can tell h
  2. Hi, I am 15 years old and suffer from acne. I have started my skincare routine which is made up of African black soap, a pore unclogging face scrub that contains sacrylic acid, a toner, and a moisturizer which is just cocoa butter. after these products, i apply benzoyl peroxide and go to sleep. I am on day 3 of this routine and am noticing my skin is very very dry throughout the day. I lather lotion and it dries up 20 minutes later. I'm experiencing a lot of skin flaking, occasional burning, and
  3. Well I understand this is a acne forum but I didn't know where else to go. As you can see I have quite bad wrinkles on my forehead, I've had these for years but never really thought much of it (thought everyone had it when they lifted eyebrows) but now I know people my age barely have one line let alone the 4-5 I do. I don't wanna look 60 by the age of 30 please can someone help me get rid of them or reduce them.
  4. I have been using Dr Organics Snail Gel for 3.5 weeks and it's made such a huge improvement to my skin already! I would highly recommend for anyone suffering with acne, scarring and an uneven or oily complexion!! Snail secretion filtrate is all natural, cruelty free and the latest craze to come out of South Korea! It's well worth it - I would highly recommend.
  5. I have been using Epiduo or TactuPump (Same thing, different names) since around December I think and it has helped a lot with my acne and I just have Post inflammatory hyperpigmentation left. Since around the middle of February I have had eye bags under my eyes, I think the cause of it was my sleeping late for a week or so, but after that I started sleeping 8-9 hours a night and the eye bags didn't budge. They're a little smaller now, but they are still here. I am worried because I never have h
  6. So I used differing .3% for a while, it eventually worked pretty well, but i still had redness and some red marks. i took a break from it, didn't wash my face that much. Acne didn't come back, but lots of clogged pores, premature aging and roughness came. If you stop using retinoids cold turkey, does it cause clogged pores and aging? or was that from not washing my face? I started washing my face with dove soap, and used differing twice over the last week, and my skins improving, can
  7. Can anyone relate to having severely tight/ dry skin coming on suddenly post accutane??? My skin has become painfully tight and feel taught around my mouth, cheeks, and forehead and indescribably dry as the desert. NO OIL PRODUCTION at all. The rest of the skin on my body is increasingly dry and uncomfortable also. This coincides with overly dry/brittle hair & severe hairloss which started a couple months after finishing. cumulative doseage was around 14 000mg's 53 KG adult female
  8. I was prescribed a cumulative dosage of around 14 000 mg over 11 months finishing Nov 2010. I had only minor acne, hormonal and persistent. I weigh 54kg./ = 266.67 mg per kg and am suffering severe side effects since including: Severe dry hair & hair loss - well over 70% and continuing. No regrowth 18 mnths later massive skin issues - severe dry,tight ashy skin, painful, subcutaneous fat loss brittle nails joint problems sleep disturbance dry mouth, nose etc Has anyone ever
  9. Hey Guys, Veteran member here. Ive been battling acne since I was a teen, cant remember how young now. I've had 2 courses of accutane and tried numerous topicals. Around 26-27 yrs of age, my acne became very mild and manageable. I've just had my first child, and my skin has steadily gone downhill since giving birth. I am 11 months post-partum and my skin looks the worst it ever has. Over the last 6 months i have tried proactiv, PC BHA 2%, PC BHA 4%, (no BP as this is too damaging to m
  10. I use quite a bit of BP (on the acne.org regimen for about 3 months), I am young, and I definitely don't want wrinkles. I would like to know if BP can cause wrinkles, or if it WILL, and maybe some tips on how to prevent them if BP infact can cause wrinkles. This topic is of great concern to me, please reply. - WS
  11. Hi everyone, I took accutane for the first and only time 4 years ago. I was 19 then, I'm 23 now. While on accutane, I noticed that my skin seemed to have lost some of its elasticity and I had developed fine lines around my eyes and mouth. Of course, because no one warned me that this might happen, I thought nothing of it and completed the course. I also struggle with chronic tendinitis by the way (but that's another story). 4 years later, the acne is back and I'm really struggling. My skin
  12. Hi all,Hope you are well. I am feeling very down because of my skin. I always have people thinking i'm 30 but i'm actually 20. I don't know why but the overall quality of skin is just soo bad.I've had severe acne for approx 4 years. 3 months ago i finally started accutane. I've currently taken accutane for 3.5months with minimal improvement. Dosage 0-1.5 months - 10mg1.5-2.5 months - 20mg2.5-3.5 months - 30mg3.5 > months - 40mg (will stay on that for the rest of the course, or may
  13. I've been struggling with acne for about 2 years and it's finally going away because of a great natural treatment i've done which was dr.bronner's magic soap in conjunction with tea tree oil 2x a day. Now that it is almost gone, I bought AHA lotion and retinol cream. Here are my questions: Any tips on how to use it? should I use both? How many times a day? Can I use it with my normal treatment which I've talked about above? Should I do a spot test? please be thorough. Thanks in advanc
  14. I am considering buying the Lightstim for acne. My skin texture is ruined from over-applying a product a few years ago. I am prematurely aging. It seems the Lightstim for acne helps with skin texture as well as acne. Has anyone found that the Lightstim for acne is drying at all? I read once that blue LED lights can dry skin, but I can't seem to find that information anymore.
  15. Hi, First time poster, What kind of dermaroller should I buy to help correct my rolling acne scars? I would also hope it would smooth out my wrinkles on my forhead. Can anyone give me suggestions? I am excited to start! I am a middle aged man in his early 50s. In addition, what other products should I start using with it? I don't want to cause more damage so any advice would greatly be appreciated. Thank you.
  16. Hi, currently I am just using Retin-A 0.05% as well as Clindamycin which keeps my skin pretty clear and nice, yet it feels like a battle? Lately, I have restarted using the Retin-A after pausing for a bit, and not getting enough sleep so it seemed to give me a wrinkle-like line on my cheek (smile line area). Is this normal for initially restarting Retin-A, since I know it is supposed to help with wrinkles? I mean, I am only 20. In about a month, I will start the birth control Yasmin, which I
  17. Can anyone recommend me something for my scars? I finished accutane about 15 months ago, I have waited for most of the hyper pigmentation to go before making any decisions... But it looks quite hopeless that these scars are going anywhere.
  18. Hello Acne.Org Community, I applied too much benzoyl on my 1st night of the regime and although my face handled it okay ( redness, spotty and flakey but not too much burning) I believe I got the benzoyl in my eyes while I was sleeping. I woke up to swollen eyes and worse DEEP fine lines and wrinkles under my eyes. I am still continuing the regime and by day 3 the swelling went down but the wrinkles and lined have remained!!!!! I continue to moisturize underneath but am worried and they are de

    Overall it seems like some minor changes for the better. Getting there maybe. I just want those lines to go away!

    Acne Update #2

    So, In my last Acne Update I said I was washing my face with Cerave Hydrating Cleanser then applying BP like a moisturizer then using Vanicream Lite Lotion. My acne has gone away so quickly. I have like 3ish pimples. Here's the bad news. My skin looks like leather. Around my eyes and forehead it is incredibly tight, not flaky but tight. When I smile you can see a BUNCH of wrinkles on the side of my eyes. The skin on and above my eyelids are really tight too. So I've ditched the BP and Cerave. Fi
  22. I don't know if anyone has ever heard of Beauticontrol, but I had not until a couple of years ago when I had a home spa. I have tried so many skin care treatments including medications prescribed by the dermatologist my entire teenage years. I have always had horrible skin, so I was willing to try anything new. I fell in love with their products. They do exactly what they say they will do. So I joined the company and started doing spa. So I am always looking for women who need a good skin care r

    Three month update

    From the album: Microneedling Journey

    It always seems like one side of my face is redder than the other. Overall not a lot of change head on. I'm secretly hoping for forehead line reduction to be a thing.
  24. Hey guys, I was wondering if anyone had a similar issue. Since my skin is so dry from the regimen and I can't use heavy moisturizers due to how badly my skin reacts to most products, I still have extremely dry skin from the regimen. I have dry patches and I think I'm starting to develop dermatitis, but what worries me more is how aged my skin looks. The area around my eyes, where I don't even get benzoyl peroxide near anymore is still extremely dry and I have fine lines now, but I'm only 20.
  25. Hi ladies, new here :) Basically.... I am on day 2 on modified caveman regiment and so far using only water twice a day. BUT I have to wear makeup while doing part time at work and planing to use my regular Avene gentle face wash to remove it. Also thinking of using a diy exfoliator (clay, honey and oats) to remove dead skin once a week or less. In the mornings I wash my face with a bit of water and despite I usually have very oily skin, water dries me out and leaves tight and shiny appea
