What is The Skin Blog?

As a teenage girl, quite a large proportion of my life seems to be spent in front of the mirror, analysing my skin, or on my computer, researching skin treatments. The other day I was doing just that – trying to find out more about Isotrex Gel, a topical form of the strong and controversial roaccutane. Judging by the results google gave me, it would have appeared that no one had used the gel for three years. I was amazed. Why had so few people given their recent experiences with this medicine? In fact, why had so few people given their long term experiences with acne in general? There are many ideas floating around cyberspace about what does and doesn’t work as an acne cure. There are few personalised, longer accounts of results of various treatments.

Because of this, I decided to create The Skin Blog. Here, I will record my ‘journey’ as I try to achieve smooth and glowing skin. I also hope to review products: creams, washes and make-up, so that at last you can know what really works for real people.

    Hi. Can’t remember who gave me your blog address, but I’ve also suffered from skin problems – miserable! Briefly, my teenage acne never seemed to go away and either transformed into or was replaced by eczema. I eventually tired of conventional medical treatments that had little effect, and then tried Homeopathy (which had an effect but didn’t cure), Chinese Herbal treatment (Horrible stuff! Astonishing effects and results, but no cure), and then, after reading about in the the newspaper, something called CKT Treatment from David Stevens – who told me that skin problems may be the result of allergies or sensitivities to various things that you’re not aware of. Anyway, his unconventional treatment worked – I’m almost clear of Eczema (except for a tiny patch!) I know this reads like an advert, but I’m not linked to CKT in any way – just thought you might like to hear about it. Hope you find a cure.

    You can send me an email if you want to know more about my experiences with skin problems.
    Best wishes, Phil
