    Post Accutane Day 116
    Well folks after going weeks without any pimple i got one two days ago, it was a painful little whitehead, i popped and it went away in a day. Not bad considering it's been weeks since i got any blemish.

    My current regimen is the same as described in the last post. Also, it's cool that i went the entire Summer with clear skin! Also now that fall is here ive noticed my skin isn't as oily as it was during the summer, which was definitely way less than pre-accutane.

    nothing else, everything is cool.

    I'm gonna disappear for a while unless something major happens to my skin like all of a sudden accutane helps mother nature to kick in and i finally stop getting any blemish or acne returns! Who knows. Also in the next entry i promise to put a picture of myself in this famous blog

    Post Accutane Day 91, 3 Months!
    Surprisingly i haven't had a pimple in like a month. I had this tiny whitehead but it went away the same day.

    My regimen just includes washing my face with Clean and Clear 10% BP during the morning and at night with regular facewash and on random nights apply Retin A.

    My face is slightly oily but with summer winding down it's great to say that my face has been clear all summer. It would be great if this remains like this but one can never be too optimistic.

    Post Accutane Day 63
    Same regimen. Morning 10% Clean and Clear Benzoyl peroxide. At night regular Clean and Clear face wash followed by Retin A. Results so far?

    My skin had been clear until this weekend when i got this cyst-like bump on my right cheek but it ended up turning into a small white head. It's going away but leaving a dark spot. That's it. I am grateful for how it is now but i'd rather not have any kind of blemish on my skin. The oil on my face is mild perhaps due to the warm weather and humidity but is manageable for now.

    That's all.

    You're absolutely fine! I think you just have some insecure issues or want attention or something. The pics look fine and now you try to downplay it as "pictures being misleading." They would be misleading if it was from a camera from the 1990s. I think you should see a psychiatrist considering most of your posts speak of depression as if your acne was that bad. Have you seen real acne sufferers around here?
    Hey im just being honest, you look fine.

    Do this. Use Clean and Clear Benoyl peroxide 10% morning and night. After two weeks you will thank me. It has to be the Cleand and Clear 10% BP. Nothing else! don't add extra chemicals, soaps, NOTHING. Don't tell me you have tried everything, and even what i just recommended. just do it for two weeks

    isn't that a little bit too much stuff on the face, eventually the skin will become stressed out as it adjusts to various creams, lotions, potions, etc causing break outs . Have you talked to the dermatologist?

    Post Accutane Day 45 (With New Regimen)
    I currently have no acne on my face. It's smooth and clear. Last week i had a little lump on my cheek but it went away in two days.

    Perhaps it's all better because of my new regimen: clean and clear BP 10% during the morning, regular Clean and Clear facewash at night followed by Rentin A.

    It dries my skin after each wash but then oil returns but i have to say, my face isn't as oily as before the 2nd course of accutane AND DEFINITELY not as oily as before as the first time i used accutane.

    Don't know it's only day 45 post accutane, i don't know if acne will return in the future once i run out of Retin A or once i stop using BP 10%. It would be great just to wash your face with regular face wash. However, really great to enjoy the summer not having to worry about your face except for the regimen.

    That's all for now

    Post Accutane Day 30

    Well i finished my last pill of accutane 30 days ago, i did two months only and the last month i took on my own will for like 6 months, anyway...

    When i just stopped taking accutane i had like 3 little white head and last week i had a bump on my cheek that quickly went away. That's it. Not bad. And my oil has been a little bit above normal considering it's summer and i live in a very humid city.

    My regimen has been washing with regular face wash (clean & clear) micro sub day and night but last night i started using Rentin A during the nights. I had Retin A from last summer that i still have half of bottle. It expires in 2016 so might as well finish it.

    All the accutane side effects are gone; i even lost 10 lbs and am 5 lbs away from being back to normal.

    I havent seen my dermatologist since February when she took me out of Accutane. So far so good.

    Absolutely Finished Accutane, Post-Accutane Day 1
    1st month (October, 2014) - 60mg/day
    2nd month (November, 2014-June 1st 2015)- 80mg/ day taking within the span of 7 months

    Eventhough i haven't had a cyst in like 5 months, oil has started to return to a moderate level. Considering i have been taking, on my own accord, accutane once in a while, skipping days, even weeks i think it would have been best to forever take accutane with small doses here and there. It has absolutely worked great. I will talk to my dermatologist next time around. Hopefully by then nature would have taken its course.

    my daily regimen has included washing face with regular water in the morning and regular facewash at night but now that i don't have accutane anymore i'll start by washing face morning and night with regular face wash. Actually i have Tretinoin (0.5%) that i was prescribed a month prior to accutane and doesn't expire 'til next year. I will start using it starting next week.

    That's it i guess. I will update 2-3 times/ month

    Last 5 Pills Of Accutane!
    I've been dispersing my accutane pills for the 2nd month of December 2014 and now finally im down to my last 5 pills of 40mg. Once again, i gotta mention i have been out of Dermatologist care since February, 2015, since i asked the doctor to take me out of Accutane due to very bad side effects.

    So it's been a month since i have taken 5 accutane pills and i don't know if it's the summer or the accutane dissipating from my system but oil has definitely been returning. However, i havent broken out this last month except for two little white heads that quickly went away.

    My regimen has still been regular facewash, Clean & Clear, and regular warm water in the morning. And no cysts for like the past 5 months! Oh well it was good while it lasted.

    By the way all side effects went away like late January and the only side effect that perhaps remains is me being FAT. Never in my life have i been this chubby (gained 15lbs) and it won't go away no matter my diet or exercise. Usually exercising and dieting will very quickly rid of this fat. This is a different kind of fat due to high lips, cholesterol, triglycerides in my system 'cause of Accutane.

    Anyway, i will report back in a week or so. Laters.

    Thanks Hope but that seems like a time consuming regimen. Warm water in the morning and regular facewash is working fine, trying to avoid all those chemicals unless completely necessary.

    Last 10 Pills Of Accutane
    First month: 60mg/day
    second month: 80mg/day for the past 4 months

    SAD TIMES, Well i am down to my last 10 pills of Accutane. I have been on my 2nd month since December 2014 and have been out of Dermatologist care since February but i am finishing up my last pills from my second month.

    The last time i took 5-days of accutane pills was late March and went 5 weeks without taking any pill and guess what? Oil returned! It returned to not a significant amount but i'm sure after 2-3 months it will return to its pre-accutane level. Sigh. The only good news is that i haven't broken out for the past 4 months! although i did get two little bumps which quickly went away.

    I'm still on the morning regular warm water and night regular clean and clear facewash. I really don't wanna go back to using Benzoyl Peroxide as it tends to make my skin oiler.

    Anyway, i am taking my last 10 pills slowly. Tomorrow i will take my 5th, i will wait two weeks and take my last 5 of 40mg. AND THEN i don't know!

    Finished Accutane But Still Taking Pills Here And There
    Hmm interesting stuff, so you know i have been taking Accutane here and there for the past 5 months, though only of two months supply. Had to end it early because of side effects and stuff. So i have 5 pills left, i took five pills 3 weeks ago and my skin has remained dry. Usually i would stop taking it for two weeks and oil would return.

    After three weeks my skin is scaly dry, specially on my cheeks, very noticeable too. Interesting, could my oil glands have adopted to dryness rather than trying to come back again? As far as acne i had two little pimples in the past 4 months but they quickly went away.

    My regimen is still regular warm water in the morning and regular face wash at night, Clean and Clear.

    I still have 5 pills lefts and as soon as my cheeks stop being dry i will take my last 5 pills. By the way im not under the care of the dermatologist anymore.

    Social life has been great, great not to have to worry about acne, but the funny thing is when i was on accutane and with bad side effects i was dating women like crazy, almost every week a new girl, had to run to the bathroom after 15 minutes of making out, my lips were irritated etc. now that the side effects are gone but my skin is still dry i haven't had a date in 4 months...haha that's life.

    Finished 2Nd Course Of Accutane But Day 55

    So tonight showering i noticed the first pimple on my face after like 3 months of not getting one. Before i just had one little zit but this one is a midsized lump. I touch it and press on it but it doesn't hurt. Hopefully it's just a mosquito bite, don't know yet.

    Since like my 15thday day of pills, which was sometime around mid November 2014 my regimen has only consisted of regular facewash at night and plain water during the mornings, perhaps i should start considering adding some acne facewash.

    I only have five pills left of accutane left. Took my 55th day of pill on March 22 and hoping to take the last 5 later April. For anyone reading this i am not under the care of a dermatologist anymore. Due to side effects, since late December, 2014 i've been taking Accutane whenever i wanted. Don't know but everytime i take the pills by face dries up but oil starts returning soon after. Summer is around the corner gotta hope for the best. Peace

    I've seen people's skin on accutane clear up in the last 4 or 5 months, also what regimen are you using? Not sure how dry your skin is but use BP, the reason your breaking up is cause of the bacteria ll around it, BP right now will clear all of that in less than a week.
