I'm still taking 15 more pills because my next fucking appointment is in April. I'm 17, 5'3", around 120 lbs and at 40mg. I've been on 40 mg for 5 months and he said if I went any higher my limbs would fall off. I have absolutely NO faith that my skin is going to get better. I still break out before my fucking period and my scars and skin is so fucking red. My scarring has gotten so much worse. My skin isn't smooth, but bumpy Jd I look so gross. Honestly... EVERYONE has gotten clear by this time and I'm still looking the same as before. This is bullshit. Nothing works and I'm going to have fucking shitty skin for the rest of my life. I can't even be myself because I'm so insecure with my skin and I don't want to talk to anyone becaus of it an people don't talk to me because I have gross skin and I am awkward because of that. I just. Give. Up. What. Do. I. DO.

AM: CeraVe foaming cleanser

Paula's Choice 2% liquid BHA mixed with Paula's Choice vitamin C serum

Acne.org BP

Acne.org moisturizer

Paula's Choice SPF 30 sunscreen (physical sunscreen, do not use chemical sunscreen on the face, more likely to break out)

 

PM: CeraVe foaming cleanser

Paula's Choice 2% liquid BHA mixed with Paula's Choice vitamin C serum

Acne.org BP

Acne.org moisturizer

 

1x per week: chemical peel (40% lactic acid or 30% glycolic acid)

 

Be hopeful and grateful at all times! Sunscreen is my BFF.

I looooove make up. You should never break out from your make up.

Your skin care products should be your base, most of it being absorbed into the skin. Make up is designed to sit on top of the skin.

We are in the same boat my friend.  I am at the end of the fifth month and still breaking out though not as bad.  Unfortunately, while accutane will clear a majority of people, for some of us, it will only give us temporary improvement.  I am a 3rd time user so i have had experience.  You may need hormonal treatment by itself or perhaps a mixture of hormonal and a topical to CONTROL acne.  Keep your head up though girl.  If you ever want to talk, PM me.


It's a rocky road but like everything else in life, there is always a beginning and an end.  Here's to finding my end.

 

God is good to me..........more than I deserve.

 

James 1:2-4

Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And let endurance have its perfect result, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.
