Hello! My name is Ximena and this is my first blog!
I am 25 years old... I started breaking gout when I was 22 or 23.  In the beginning it was REALLY bad and I am really mad that I don't have pictures of that time but I will post the worst pictures that I have of my acne in my next post. 
I am basically writing this blog to keep tr...

Whoops: A Prologue

Posted by BehindTheCamera in I Want To Break Free, 21 December 2014 · 12 views

In 2011 I made a blog post declaring a war on my persistent acne. I vowed to terminate it within twelve months by any means necessary.
The war has since turned cold. 
I'm nearing age twenty-one and my acne is still rampant and annoying as hell. Wasn't I supposed to outgrow the awkward middle school phase? Did my body not get the memo?...

Getting Closer To 2 Full Months On Accutane

Posted by sandycheekss in THE BLOG, 19 December 2014 · 24 views

I'm pretty much just writing this blog so that any one considering Accutane has a better idea of what they might expect. I know I wanted as much information as I could get before and after going on in. I was recommended it when I was 16 or 17 i think, nearly 10 years ago. I don't think it is safe to go on Accutane that young because your body is still dev...

2 Week On Accutane (Pictures)

Posted by Naomiskin in Naomiskin's Blog, 18 December 2014 · 44 views

This is my 2nd week update on Accutane. Still taking 30 mg/day.

So my initial breakout is happening. It's pretty ugly, maybe not the worst acne I've ever experienced, but still it's bad. It has started around day 10, and is still happening.
If someone would like to illustrate all types of acne on one face... well mine would be a very good example. All o...

10Th Week

Posted by Amanda4747 in My Solodyn and Ziana experience, 17 December 2014 · 38 views

My skin is healing from the break out I just had for the past 2 weeks! It made my skin get to its worst... I have a lot of red and purple marks from them. They were nodules that wouldn't surface or go away. Finally, they surfaced though. Now my skin looks all irritated from them surfacing and healing... I'm so lucky to have a boyfriend that loves me for w...

I've been on Epuris since November 13, 2014. My initial dosage was 20 mg, and I took it for 30 days. My current dosage is 40 mg, as of two days ago.

Just as a quick background, my skin on its own (without any acne treatment) is normal-oily, and not too sensitive. My forehead is clear, but my cheeks and jaw tend to break out more often (a new pimple once...

Things Are Starting Up Again

I'm at the end of my 8th week post-Bactrim, and, well, I'm getting a lot of white heads around my nose and even some pimples on my cheeks and jawline again :/
I was scheduled to see my derm last week, but I had to cancel and say I would call to reschedule later because I finally got a job (hurray!) and had to go to orientation. Haven't rescheduled because...

I have become a hermit due to how bad my skin is - I know it's shallow but I cannot lead a normal life nor socialise whilst my confidence is so low.
I have developed 7 major spots which have developed into scabs - tempted to give up the accutane but I know an initial breakout is normal. Did anyone else experience this?
Have severe dandruff and very dry sk...

Growing up, my older sister used to have acne. Being a younger sibling, it was my duty to pick on her. However, I never realized just how hurtful some of the things I said (especially about her acne) must have been. When I hit puberty at 11...BOOM. Hello little friends whom live on my face. It was mortifying to go to school, or out with my family. Kids wo...

Week 4

I am a little bit late posting due to Black Friday but unfortunatley my breakouts have come back again, I guess for round two of an "initial breakout". At the beginning of week three I thought that my breakouts has cleared up some but it seems as if that was only temporary. Anywho, it'll clear up completely someday!
I go back this Friday for my first appo...

accutane, completed 6 months

Post Accutane (Isotretinoin) So I've been off Accutane for a little over a month and a half and my skin has continued to stay clear! I have had a couple of pimples on my back a few days after stopping, but I have not had one pimple in over a month now. This could all change, but at this moment my skin looks and feels great!! My skin continues to stay oil free. My eyes are n...
