    20 Mg Accutane Per Day, 3 Days In.
    Well today is my 3rd day on my fourth cycle accutane. I am taking 20mg/day. As you can see from my photo it is about the same, although, it looks like there is no new growth, which is good. I hope to see some improvement in the coming weeks. It seems like either way I am going to have to implement the regimen or a new diet once the cycle ends. It is always the same, a month or so after the accutane cycle ends my acne comes back. Has anyone taken multiple cycles of accutane to finally rid themselves of acne?

    Meet Another Person With Acne. I Love Learning More About This Thing We Hate.
    Hey all, I am Thomas Rio, I have had acne since I was about 14. I am now 24. I have managed it many different ways, and have seen very clear skin at times for a few months at a time. About six months was the longest stint I have been clear. I have the type of skin where if I did absolutely nothing, including not washing my face, I would probably end up with over 100 pimples at a time, maybe more. Although by now I have sort of lost the acne growth everywhere but my forehead. However, my upper cheeks (I have a beard) are blotchy red and itchy (I don't know why, it seems like sometimes it is what I eat)
    I have used, Accutane, The regimen, Special diets, herbs, and exercise. They have all worked for me, I just hate to keep up with the healthy things, and accutane has destroyed my liver. I don't really know what to do. I am so sick of trying. I am thinking of doing a 4 accutane cycle, hopefully it will be the last ..I will post again perhaps tomorrow when I start my accutane cycle.

    Everyone feel free to comment with helpful hints and ways to get acne free.

    Stay Clear,

    I healed myself from acne a few years ago with diet, and the regimen. I since have been breaking out again simply out of lazyness. But about food. These steps can help you figure out what food will break you out and also if its possible to cure by food.
    Do "the regimen" because that always works
    Start out eating only cucumber, carrots, and water for as many days as you can (your acne will go away in about three-4 weeks with "the regimen" and that diet, but you can't live that way)
    Slowly add foods back into your diet, one food group (ex. whole grains) every three days, if you must, this is a quest and takes will power
    when you break out because of a food cut it out of your diet forever
    Be smart, Sugar, Soda, Chips, Fried Foods, and Spicy foods all cause acne, whoever says different is suffering from acne for a different reason besides food, and it can't ever hurt to be too careful, just eat extremely healthy
    Take milk thistle to keep your liver in check so you can eat those foods again.
    Take flax seed oil so your skin can regenerate on time and not get clogged up all the time.

    Hope this helps

    I have noticed this, one thing that helped me was milk thistle tincture before I drink, also helps with the hangover Witch hazel followed by cetaphil helps me too.
