If you have acne in this area, this might be why
So for the past month my skin has really been going thru it. I’ve been having acne and closed comedones all along my cheek, chin, and jaw, to the point where my skin almost feels like sand paper. Truthfully, I don’t let it affect me too much. I know I’m a human being and acne is completely normal. So there’s no need to take it out on my self confidence or self worth that I worked so hard on! That being said it’s still my body talking to me, and it’s still something to treat! If you sprained your ankle and knee accidents happen and everything will be ok, you’d still treat it! So even though I know I’m still ok and healthy and my skin is going thru a phase, I can’t ignore that it needs treatment. I have a pretty great skincare routine. YTTP kale cleanser, chemical exfoliant 1-2x a week, top tier moisturizers and serums and evening curology! But for the past month NONE of them have worked on me! So I finally went to a dermatologist because this clearly is way above my knowledge as a self-proclaimed skincare junkie. I did a televise and paid my insurance co-pay if $20, and after sending my derm photos of my skincare and a ton of other info on my the verdict was..... Hormonal acne caused by too much testosterone production! My doctor let me know that the placement of my acne, along the cheek, jaw, and chin, is 100% hormonal and that acne that closed comodones and acne he was seeing on my face is due to over production of sebum because of my body overproducing testosterone. He also said that this is super common among women over 25! I felt relieved to finally pinpoint what exactly was causing my acne (because I didn’t change anything in my diet or routine and just months before my skin was clear) and I was prescribed epiduo forte Spironolactane, a pill that blocks testosterone He also advised me to chuck my skincare routine and just use CeraVe - Acne Foaming Cream Cleanser as a wash and CeraVe - PM Facial Moisturizing Lotion along with the AM version as well. I am so happy I went to a derm because I would’ve been trying product after product feeling hopeless! I should receive my prescription later this weekend and I also have a 6-week check in coming up, so I will let you guys know how it goes :) If you have any q’s about seeing a dermatologist IRL or online, drop them below and I’ll do my best to answer them.

CereVe Acne Foaming Cream Cleanser Review
I will have to admit, this product is hard to find in certain stores! I was able to get my hands on this at my local target and I was able to score the last one on the shelf. I was super excited to finally get to be able to try this product, but I am super sad to say that after a few days is using this product it was not for me 😔. CeraVe - Acne Foaming Cream Cleanser I am giving this product two stars because it did not work for me. Please try this product yourself before taking my review to heart. With this product I instantly broke out! At first, I though I was just purging, but upon further evaluation I was breaking out in spots I never have before and the breakouts were painful and very irritated. I was super psyched to purchase this product product. I’m glad I was able to try it although it did not work of my skin! For those who are interested in the product this is a acne cleanser with 4% benzoyl peroxide. It claims to clear acne, pimples, and black heads. This product helps to prevent new acne and allows skin to heal by using ceramides, hyaluronic acid, and niacinamide. This product is gentle on skin and is non-comedogenic.

🏆Never lose your fight with acnes
Hey sisters🥰!!! If everything gets shutdown during COVID-19, one of the few things that should never be affected is your addiction to skin care. My life-long enemy acne never knows how to self-quarantine and spare a little stability to my skin. I mean...who's undefeatable in front of the brutal acnes🤭? But you're lucky enough - in our incredibly loving Cherie community, your skin problem is never a problem because of our super helpful beauty experts🤩!!! @Paola29suffered from acnes because of hormonal imbalances. Weeks ago, they made a post on Cherie and asked for skincare advice. Believe it or not, within a week, they got so many useful tips on acne treatment - read the golden advice below word by word! @mira.nichole "I love using products like The Ordinary Salicylic Acid 2% Masque and any of the Sweet Chef Serum Shots to help my skin out. I definitely recommend seeing a dermatologist though if you haven’t already, since I also use a prescription cream called Aczone (Dapsone) which I found has helped out a ton." @skincarebytate "I would recommend using the CeraVe foaming cleanser and daily moisturizer. The CeraVe foaming cleanser works wonders for oily skin. Also you have to moisturize! I would also recommend steering clear of essential oils as they can cause irritation. The ordinary is great though! so keep using their products! Also don’t forget to exfoliate. I would reccomend chemical exfoliants rather than scrubs :)💗 " @al0na.c "The holy grail acne treatment that ended up working for me (finally @ 26 years old!) was the Roche-Posay Effaclar 3 step acne system, but especially the Effaclar Duo Cream. It really works very fast at clearing up breakouts and soothes the redness of the pimples." @Paola29, hope now you have a better idea of removing acnes - please keep us updated 💗!

I Tried It All & An Acne Victory Emerged!
Hormonal acne is extremely difficult to completely eliminate unless you treat the cause- which, my hormone fluctuations aren’t going anywhere, so I’d gotten pretty good at controlling breakouts via salicylic acid and niacinamide while I used azelaic acid and alpha arbutin to fade any leftover spots. But nothing has helped minimize my hormonal breakouts quite like Tretinoin 0.05%, a prescription that was previously unattainable thanks to the $200 copay for the dermatologist visit and the $180 prescription cost. Apostrophe doesn’t require you to have insurance- they have a flat rate $20 “visit fee” during which you fill out a questionnaire (including your health history) and send a dermatologist photos of your skin. Then that $20 goes towards your first prescription fill in their pharmacy, which is only $60 the first time and $90 after, though each lotion bottle should last about 3+ months with recommended use. $30 a month for the gold standard topical anti-aging ingredient and clinically-proven acne treatment? Sign me tf up. After just a month using Apostrophe - Topical Formula , I saw a difference in the frequency of my blemishes, though with stress and mask wearing lately I’ve been breaking out again. So my doctor added Clindamycin into my mix... at no extra charge, just the flat $90 cost. For those with insurance, you can have your prescription filled at the pharmacy of your choice (with your insurance if it covers it), making it super convenient for those that don’t want to wait on shipping times, which was only a couple days for me. The entire process, from survey to first product application, took only a week. I didn’t experience much irritation when introducing Tretinoin, as I eliminated all exfoliants and a lot of the products I was using to reduce risk of sensitizing my skin- plus I didn’t (and still don’t, even around six months later) use it daily. My skin is now less oily, less prone to the small colorless bumps that plagued my forehead, and I don’t really get blackheads anymore. For the anti-aging aspect, I’m 27, so I have few signs of aging as far as my skin goes- I have noticed some slight improvement in a crease in my forehead I’ve had since I was 16, which is promising! I just can’t emphasize enough how, while this didn’t cure my acne or the cystic blemishes I get around my period, this lotion has been the best acne treatment I have tried so far. #CheriePartner

This does wonders to my body breakouts!
The Neutrogena - Oil-Free Acne Wash Pink Grapefruit Facial Cleanser is a facial cleanser that I've had for over 2 years just sitting in my skincare cabinet, because it did nothing for me as a facial cleanser. Most Neutrogena products i'm not a fan of. 😬 This one included. It has 2% salicylic acid, grapefruit, and vitamin C. But fragrance is pretty high on the ingredient list... and grapefruit is lowwww on it. Salicylic acid is a commonly known BHA that unclogs pores and clears acne. But over the summer I started to experience some acne on my chest and shoulders. I didnt want to spend the money on a specific body cleanser for acne so I pulled this one out. And wow it did wonders! It clears any body breakout of mine in just a few days!! The results REALLY impressed me. Just like the Neutrogena cleanser, I also found that the CeraVe - Acne Foaming Cream Cleanser didnt really work for me facial wise...so I tried it out on the body and it didn't do anything! In fact it broke me out worse! So eventually I crawled back to the Neutrogena one and the next morning my breakout was almost completely cleared 😱 Highly recommend💞

Starting my Accutane Journey 😬
Hey guys! So today I am starting Accutane. I decided to post my current acne pictures so that I can document my progress through the process. I’ve had acne, in different degrees of severity, for about 7 years. I have painful, cystic acne along with whiteheads. Also, I have never picked my skin, yet I am still almost always left with scars. I have been prescribed every topical product under the sun along with other oral medications. Nothing ever worked. I’ve also tried many different skin care products without success. I only ever have acne on my cheeks and jaw. I will only get a pimple or two on my nose, forehead, etc maybe once or twice a a year. My cheeks are where my acne is concentrated and where it is the worst. I have extremely dry, dehydrated skin that is pretty sensitive. I’m quite concerned how my skin will be on Accutane since it dries out your skin a lot. I don’t think my skin can get much drier 😅 I’m going to post my current skincare routine so I can see if and how it changes throughout Accutane: A.M. 1. Rinse face with water 2.I either go in with The Ordinary - 100% Plant-Derived Squalane or BIODERMA - Hydrabio Sérum 3. Moisturize with Cetaphil - Deep Hydration Healthy Glow Daily Cream OR FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Face Moisturizer P.M. 1. Remove makeup using BANILA CO - Clean It Zero Cleansing Balm Nourishing 2.I’m going to switch out my CeraVe - Acne Foaming Cream Cleanser for the CeraVe - Hydrating Cream-To-Foam Cleanser 3. Tone with BIODERMA - Hydrabio Tonique 4. Again, either going in wirh the Squalane or Bioderma serum listed above. Occasionally I’ll use hyaluronic acid. 5. Then I’ll moisturize with either the FAB moisturizer listed above or the CeraVe - CeraVe Moisturising Cream 6. Cetaphil - Hydrating Eye Gel-Cream I use various masks once or twice a week as well. Also, I use a chemical exfoliator once a week. This routine keeps me super hydrated currently so I’m hoping it will continue to do so. Is my skincare routine sufficient for Accutane? Any suggestions or warnings 😅 P.S. Sorry that some of the pictures are cropped weird. I use a skincare app and just took screenshots from the app!
