I'm laying on the couch, hung over, drinking orange juice and watching Spongebob...so I thought it would be a great time to update. http://www.acne.org/...ault/shifty.gif  I was so excited a few weeks ago when my doctor upped my dosage to 60mg because I felt like I wasn't making much progress with 40. Unfortu...


Dry Skin?

Many people have dry skin while on medication for their acne. I used to use the St. Ives face scrub but I was nervous to use it because I thought it would irritate my skin and cause even more redness while on Absorica. So while I stopped using the face scrub, I began to get really annoyed by the small dry patches on the top of my arms and on my face. I wa...

After all is said and done with accutane, absorica or whatever other medication your on, many people go through their next battle in trying to get rid of their acne scars. I'm currently trying to limit the amount of damage that I will have while on Absorica and I have been looking online for simple tricks to help my face heal.  Rather than use o...


Back Pain!

Last time I wrote about the obnoxious pimples that were surfacing out of nowhere, and luckily they went away quite quickly except for the monster on my forehead that I kept picking at...my fault, I know. So during my Absorica journey, I've been following other peoples blogs, Instagrams etc. and I kept reading about how people have had horrible back p...


Week 8

Posted by lv623, 17 July 2013 · 399 views

Yesterday I went to see my dermatologist and just as I thought, he upped my prescription to 60mg. Yay for one step closer and being at the 8 week mark, but nayyy for the recent breakout I got! This week I've literally woken up with a new pimple or cyst every day!! Luckily they're  just look red  and my cover up from MaybellIne is the bombbbb so...


Waiting For 60Mg

Woke up with a massive pimple on my cheek --> hoping it goes away soon. Aside from that, I'm really hoping that my doctor bumps my perscription up to 60mp. This blog is turning into a major fail because I literally have nothing to report. No crazy side effects, no drastic changes just some red areas on my face with scars that will eventually fade, pim...


My Face Is On Fire

Posted by lv623, 28 June 2013 · 374 views

    Soo I haven't seen any drastic improvement from the last pictures I put up. A little bit more drying of the lips, but that comes and goes with each day. One side effect I have noticed since beginning 40mg/day is the delightful feeling that my face is literally on fire every.single.time. I wash my face with cleanser or apply any toners/c...


End Of Month 1

Went to see my doctor yesterday for the first time since I started Absorica. He was pretty pleased with the results so far (as am I)! He bumped me up to 40mg a daily (two pills) so we'll have to see whether the side effects continue to be minimal, or if they increase.  On a side note, one week left of teaching before the summer!!! I hope it goes...


Week 3

accutane, absorica, acne
Not sure if I've been extremely lucky, or if it's just the calm before the storm but I have hardly experienced any side effects. *Knock on wood* Lips are still dryer than usual, but thankfully not chapped. I have noticed some improvement on the acne in my cheeks, but have sparked a breakout on the top of my back, which I never had before. I will try to po...


Day 9

acne, absorica, accutane
So I am officially forcing myself on a detox. Horrible excuse, but I blame it on Memorial Day Weekend. I ate terribly and drank Fri/Sat and Sun nights...no bueno for someone who said they were going to cut down on alcohol during this treatment! While I did lose three pounds last week, I don't think that will last after this weekends fried food binge ...
