My 2013 Journey

Day 60-Something On Accutane

Posted by karlarei, 27 March 2013 · 662 views

I am 99% CLEAR :D  I didn't think I'd see such dramatic effects in such a short amount of time. Still experiencing extremely dry lips, inside of nose and very dry/red eyes but alas, the acne has just about completely gone!  Currently using:  Lucas Pawpaw for lips and inside of nose (otherwise I get nose bleeds :/ ) Clear Eyes...

Day 29 On Accutane

Posted by karlarei, 18 February 2013 · 939 views

So my skin is looking amazing! It suddenly started improving dramatically in the last few days so I guess it's all finally happening! I also started drinking loads more water, exercising and eating healthy so I'm not sure if that played a role in it as well. My skin is looking the best it has in a LONG time. I can't say I have one active pimple at the mom...

Day 25 On Accutane

Posted by karlarei, 13 February 2013 · 581 views

So in the midst and stress of moving house over the past week, my skin broke out quite bad. Nowhere near as bad as it used to before I was on Accutane however. I'm finding it quite difficult to be patient at the moment, it's hard seeing only minor improvement each day but I guess I don't have much of a choice but to stick to it.  My lips have ju...

Day 17!

Posted by karlarei, 05 February 2013 · 469 views

Stoked with the improvements my skin has made! It's getting better and better each day. Skin is ridiculously tight at the moment and flaking everywhere. I'm still getting a few small zits here and there but they're not very deep and are gone within two days. So for now, I can say the cystic acne has disappeared! Surface acne and scarring is still apparent...

Day 16-Pics!

Posted by karlarei, 05 February 2013 · 447 views

Noticing very dramatic improvement today! I can't believe how much my skin has improved in the last couple of days. The cysts I had on my chin and neck have dramatically reduced on their own. I did dab a little Panoxyl on them but didn't think it would make much of a difference. One side of my neck is practically clear of bumps, obviously the scarring is...

Day 15 :d

Posted by karlarei, 04 February 2013 · 418 views

Well, my skin seems to have made an amazing turn around after yesterday. I upped my dosage two nights ago so I'm thinking that has something to do with it. I can legitimately say that my acne is fading now and for the first time my skin feels super soft and even smooth in a few places! I did get a bit sun kissed yesterday, which I know I'm not meant to do...

Day 14 :(

Posted by karlarei, 02 February 2013 · 357 views

Skin has gotten 10 times worse. I don't even want to think about it. I just upped my dosage to 40mg. I have a HUGE cyst forming on my chin which is killing me, my entire chin is swollen and it looks ridiculous. Have been dabbing Panoxyl on it day and night but it's not making a difference. I'm going to try putting a hot compress on it as often as I can to...

Day 12

Posted by karlarei, 31 January 2013 · 387 views

Not so good today. Got next to no sleep the night before which I think is why. Had a few angry spots coming to the surface and got frustrated so I popped a few :( Argh I just can't help myself! Really need to stop. End of day two without washing hair and still no oil! Loving this. Lips are so so dry at the moment, going to need to invest in more lip balm...

Day 11-Still Improving!

Posted by karlarei, 30 January 2013 · 494 views

Definitely seeing some minor improvement today. Only just enough for me to notice. Not as much active acne and skin is drying out plenty now. A lot of the redness seems to be slowly fading also. Still a few pimples rising to the surface but that's expected. Lips are drying out INSANELY. I feel like my skin is reasonably balanced at the moment, now that mo...

Day 10 - Improvement!

Posted by karlarei, 29 January 2013 · 503 views

So, day 9 was terrible. I felt like my skin was exploding with acne. I was seriously feeling a bit down about the whole thing. Fortunately, as it was a long weekend here, I got some much needed fresh air and sunshine and I'm finally seeing some improvement today! I've been drinking a tonne of water and have done a lot of exercise the past two days so I th...
