    Acne can be SUCH a bummer and I wanted to share my experience with you for those who might be struggling as well!! It's so frustrating how different everyone's skin is, but these are the active ingredients/routines that have and have NOT worked for me thus far! Also let me know what your experience was with Accutane if you've given it a shot - I'm definitely considering it as an option. See u sunday for a new episode of DIY MASTER!!!!

    *Oracutane, has a lot of side effects depending on your skin, it can either give you dry cracked lips, black pores, freckles on your back, itchy skin, and sometimes even dry oily scalp. I personally thought it was a life saver, since I went through a lot of bullying in highschool because of acne. It definitely made me frustrated and depressed at times, and this was actually so good! But I still think you shouldn't take this route since there might be some products out there that you haven't found yet. Keep searching and good luck lauren!*

    Accutane was the only thing that worked for my skin. I tried every medication for acne before going on that, but literally nothing helped it just made it worse or kept it the same. And Accutane was my saving grace

    Omg I feel you gurlll:( About a year ago, I had a huge breakout. Went to the doctor and it got worseee! I literally lost 100% of my confidence, but after a few consultations and treatments, my skin got soooo much better. Whoever is dealing with skin problem right now, remember that healing takes time and your skin will be fine!! So don't stressed your self out and just spend time with the people who could make you feel comfortable in your bare-skin. ♡

    Omg totally you understand rn! last month my skin totally broke out and it's all over my forhead and kind of around my lips and chin...a weird spot ik. Im currently using more organicy products and they seem to really be working for me, however I'm stuck with scars where pimples previously were. If anyone has any recommends for getting rid of scars I'd please really like to know some of them!

    With what made your face break out, even more, you might have been allergic to a chemical or ingredient in the product. It happens to me. I tried products and then my acne got worse and so I try to avoid those kinds of products. If you want, you can also try masks. I use them and walk away with a nice fresh feeling on my face. It works for me at times. Your skin is so smooth and so beautiful though. :)

    Accutane will honestly change and ruin your life at the same time lol. I was on it for a couple of years and constantly had dry skin/lips, issues with light sensitivity (which have never really gone away), and problems with just feeling overall awful most of the time. I will say it cleared my skin up at 15-16 when I took it, but now at 21 I am struggling with breakouts again? It's all so individual, but I would say the risk is worth the reward!!

    my sister and cousins used Accutane and it helped a lot with their acne. they still have acne but it’s better. also they are going through the side effects of it too. they’re happy with less acne but the after effects ruined it for them. my sister and one of my cousins complained about their “sideburn area” being more noticeable but i don’t know cause it may be different for you

    I've literally tried everything! I started getting acne when I was really young, when I was 12. I'm 22 now and still struggle with acne. You name it, I've done it - all the prescription topicals/pills, all the over the counter drug store products, all the sephora high end skin care.. Done it all. At the start of this year I tried out Curology and they made me a personalized overnight topical and LITERALLY IS THE ONLY THING that has consistently worked for my skin!! It's amazing. You have to try. Try this before really deciding on accutane. Accutane is reeeeally hard on the body, you have to be so mentally prepared for it.

    The tretinoin w/e is what created the “purge”. I went to 2 derms and they did the same thing: antibiotics, tret, and clindamycin. Doesn’t work. Curology + probiotics + a good esthetician is what worked. Peroxide is very damaging. Good luck

    Here’s the thing:
    Accutane ruins your life but works wonders on your acne. It clears up your skin like nothing else but it also reeks havoc on your insides and you’ll constantly have dry skin, lips and there’s even people ( like my mother) who now have liver problems as a long term effect from taking it. I have yet to meet a person who has taken it that has anything good to say about the process of taking Accutane BUT the results did make it worth it to them.

    I went on accutane because my skin was always good then all of a sudden it flared up and I tried so many different creams and birth control pills and antibiotics. Accutane cleated up my skin right away and it’s been two years since and I usually never get breakouts minus minor ones before my period. I wish though that I would have found a more natural way to clear my acne bc accutane was very hard on my body. I’ve been focusing on gut health ever since bc I have read that it can be very hard on your immune system and gut health. In the end it cleared up my acne but looking back I wish I would have gone a more natural route.

I cut out caffeine and junk food, exercise one to one an a half hour every day and increased my water intake so much (I feel like peeing most of the time lol but it's worth it) Also, I have been taking homeopathic medicine (it's much more different that allopathic meds and almost have no side effects [for me])! Maybe you can try it too!

    I was also prescribed benzoyl peroxide and tretinoin gel my freshman year of college when I started getting acne randomly and it DESTROYED my skin. It hasn’t been the same since - super dry super flakey all the time. I’ve gotten other medication since and nothing seems to work 😪. My dermatologist has completely ruled out accutane for me so that’s fun too

    I did Accutane for a year! It was a super low dosage. It literally changed my life. Basically I had your forehead acne but all over my cheeks, and Accutane got rid of EVERYTHING. Yes, I still break out sometimes now, but it's just like one or two random spots that show up around that time of the month, ya feel? P.S. I'm 25 and I did Accutane as a junior in high school for reference. GOOD LUCK

    Birth control is awful! It often masks the true issues and makes them worse! I’m a firm believer in using NFP! Learning your fertility is so empowering and knowing your own body is essential for health! I have used NFP tracking and charting for 6 years no unplanned pregnancies. And I had my son when I was ready and planned him. I was diagnosed with hashimotos 2 years ago I also have major hormone imbalance and painful migraines. All of this I believe is the years of damage I did to myself with BC! Getting off of it and getting my hormones balanced has been the best thing I ever did! If you struggle with irregular periods, PCOS, endometriosis, thyroid issues, hormone issues ect. you don’t have to use BC! Find a doctor that is Napro Technology trained they will work with you to find and solve the root issue. Throwing BC at a problem will often only cover it up for so long!

    I started Accutane at age 32 after YEARS of struggles with Acne. Nothing worked. Until Accutane. I was a nervous wreck when I started it because of the potential side effects and the rigorous blood testing and birth control steps that need to be taken with this medication. The only side effect I personally experienced was dryness... extreme dryness. Lips, nose (inside), skin, etc. but there are products and routines that help with the dryness. At first, I thought my skin was getting worse, but after a few weeks, my skin healed and NEVER LOOKED BETTER than when I was ON the Accutane. It was literally glowing. My skin still looks good and I have had maybe 5 tiny pimples in the 5 years since I've been off the medicine. This is my experience. Everyone is different.

    I was on accutane in high school and it is going to get worse before it gets better. Your skin is going to get very dry and you’re always going to want to have chapstick because it does dry out you lips as well. The results after it was all done was awesome though. I was very pleased with it. It did leave some scars though.
