I started getting acne when I was about 13.. it's been a long road.

I'm almost 26. Had acne since around age 21 which fluctuates between the high and low ends of what I'd say would be moderate.
I had no skin issues whatsoever when I was a teenager and I really miss not having to try to keep my skin "under control."
In a nutshell, I've had mild/moderate adult on-set acne which began towards the end of 2009. Regarding my beliefs and the previous skincare/lifestyle changes I've tried, I have been conflicted, misinformed, resistant, allergic, and had my hopes up too high only to be let down. Many of my previous posts on here will reflect that. Considering I have never found an explanation as to why I developed acne in my twenties, whereas I've had flawless skin my entire life up until then, I claim to know nothing. I'm still fighting the fight and can only offer my humble advice.
Began Accutane (Myorisan) on Sept. 30th, 2014 for a 6 month course (plus any leftover pills I may have) and am/will be consistently on 40mg throughout.
Month 1: Initial breakout, lips became a little dry.
Month 2: Skin started clearing, dry lips got worse, flaking around nose and eyebrows.
Month 3: Skin almost completely clear, lips became less dry, eyes and eyelids began to get dry, still flaking around nose and eyebrows.
Month 4: TBA
CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser

35 F here! I've had moderate to severe acne (face, chest, ears, neck, back, lower back, upper arms... ) since 13, but have managed well with the full arsenal!
Youngins, don't be discouraged, you can have your skin (and your dating life!) back!

WOW. If this were a contest, I might be the winner. I am 47 and have had bad acne non-stop since I was ~14.
