From: hovering around saturn


so i went to my doctor for this rash on the side of my face and he perscribed me cleocin-t which is for acne. my skin has never looked better!! it takes about 6 weeks to see total improvement and i have only been using it for a little less then 2 weeks but i notice a HUGE improvement. the great thing is that with insurance it cost me $15 to go to the doctor and $8 for the medication. that is cheaper then just buying more fancy stuff from sephora. so in case this helps anyone this is my face routine: (AM) i wash with MD formulations cleanser for oily to very oily skin apply the cleocin-t and let it dry, spot treat with Murad sulphur lotion and let that dry, put on a small amount of patricia wexler serum for all skin types (optional), and then a moisturizer. (PM) same cleanser, cleocin-t, benzoyl peroxide lotion, serum, and moisturizer. it has really worked wonders for me. hope this helps. now i do have really oily skin so those with sensitive or dry skin may need to use a different routine. but i have had no dryness, redness or flaking.

xoxo

From: the shallow south


So I finally broke down several months ago and started taking doxycyline (oral antibiotic) for my acne. I hate taking it every day, and I think it's messing up my immune system, but I have to admit, I'm so happy with the results on my face. My skin looks better than it ever has, I think. I still have red marks and scars that will hopefully fade, and I still get a zit here and there, but it's such an amazing change. I'm enjoying not feeling self-conscious about people looking at my face. I looked at pics of myself from before I was taking it, and I was shocked at the difference. I'm also using Duac and Finacea creams. I really wish I could do everything naturally and not have to use the prescriptions, but that has just never worked for me.
