Claravis...here we go!

Last Month!

Posted by youngforever, 09 April 2014 · 200 views

Whew can't believe how much time has passed! I just started month 6 and my skin looks great! I barely broke out all of month 5 I would get 1 or 2 teeny tiny ones that would literally disappear within a day its great. My derm said this will most likely be my last month, but we may do 1 extra for maintenance purposes. I honestly don't even mind at this poin...

Month 3 Update

Posted by youngforever, 04 February 2014 · 210 views

Halfway done! (I hope) Day 90.
My dermatologist bumped me up from 30mg to 40mg/day. She was going to keep me at 30mg but I'm going to be out of state for an internship starting in May so we are trying to get me up to the cumulative dose and off the drug by then.
Not much new to update though! Still have a few small closed comedones that beco...

Week 10 Update

Posted by youngforever, 20 January 2014 · 207 views

Well so far...the much anticipated "magic" that is supposed to happen in the 3rd month hasn't happened yet.

Still breaking out and it's so frustrating! I won't even try popping any of them so they just sit there all red and inflamed for up to 2 weeks at a time. I've had to get a couple cortisone injections since I first started treatment just to make the...

Week 9 Update

This update is a few days late, but I couldn't get my prescription for a few days. Damn iPledge makes it so complicated!
Anyways...first week on 30 mg. I can tell I am a little more dry than when I was on 20 mg (which I expected)
I did have a mini breakout. 2 little pimples around my chin/mouth area. That seems to be the only part of my face...

Month 2 Update

Month 2 down...
Had my derm appointment today and she is bumping me up from 20mg/day to 30 mg/day. She initially wanted to keep me on 20 but I don't want to end up being on accutane for longer than 6 months so I asked if I can be bumped up a little bit. 
Good news is that I didn't breakout at all this week. Everything is reallllly slowi...

Week 7 Update

Merry [early] Christmas everyone! 
I wanted to do a week 7 update since a few people asked about the Clinique Moisture Surge lotion I bought last week. So far I absolutely love it! It makes my face feel soooo soft and silky. Sometimes at night I have to double up for extra moisture but I don't mind that. It goes on really nicely under makeup t...

Week 6 Update

Posted by youngforever, 16 December 2013 · 244 views

So I missed week 5 update due to finals week and craziness with school, but I'll probably start doing 2 week updates anyways since everything is kind of slowing down at this point. 
I'm halfway through month 2..woo hoo! Still breaking out but not as much as my IB..its normally 1 pimple at a time so its manageable but so annoying because they t...

Month 1 Update

Not much new to update!
Definitely had my IB last week. All of those tiny little white bumps/closed comedones/whatever you wanna call them turned into nasty red pustules. Luckily most are flat and healing but I'm gonna have scars from all of them. awesome! I scar even when I don't pop them its so frustrating!! I was on break from school for Thanksg...

Week 3 Update

Almost a month in....phew! 
So now I am really starting to dry out! Skin is flaky and tight...it may be because my boyfriend visited for the weekend and I didn't use the vitamin e oil on my face at night (slick and oily face is not too attractive) so I'm going to hope that once I use it tonight my skin won't be as dry. 
Lips aren't...

Week 2 Update

Another week down!  http://www.acne.org/...ault/wiggle.gif
Can I just say the most annoying thing is getting the damn pills out of the box?! It is ridiculously human-proof. And one too many pregnant ladies on the box. 
Anyways -- 
Not much to update really. I've only had two little...
