Thanks! :) I do have some indentations on my cheeks, but they aren't that noticeable. I would say I would post a better quality pic so y'all can see, but realistically, it's not going to happen because I'm lazy. haha. But yeah! I don't worry about my skin at all anymore :D

Hey y'all! Long time no talk tongue.png Anyways, I thought you might like an update. I haven't been on here in months because my skin looks great! I am so thankful I went on Accutane. As a recap, I was on Accutane 40 mg for one month, and then 80 mg for 6ish months (I didn't really take any of the last month. Oops). That is, if I remember correctly. You can read over my blog if you want to know all the info. I removed a lot of the pictures to save space, so here's a reminder of what it looked like a year ago.

Hi whatdoesthefoxsay. :) good luck! I did a 7 month treatment of Accutane. It was very hard! I will say my initial breakout was awful. I was prescribed am antibiotic to help get over the initial breakout, but it was still awful. If you check out my log I should have a few pics up. I had so many red marks left over. The initial breakout and the dry skin was not fun at all. I will say not having to wash my hair every day was great though. :) my red marks are very faded now though, and I've only been off the meds since June. Time heals all wounds (and red marks!). As for how permanent it is, I do have some acne now. It's no where near as bad as it was though, so I'm happy. If you have any more questions, feel free to let me know (or anyone else here). :D

Nope, I haven't even been to my derm since finishing (although I think I was supposed to. Oops). On the little bitty pimples I do get, I'll put some salicylic acid (just the clean and clear brand) on them. I've figured out they're hormonal though, because I mainly get them during that time of the month. :/ other than that, I just wash, moisturize, and sunscreen. :)

Hello everyone! Sorry I've been MIA. I've been working at a summer camp for three months so I haven't been on in a while. I did a total of 7 months, one month at 40 mg daily and six months at 80 mg daily. I am completely back to normal now (it didn't take very long). My lips aren't dry, my skin isn't dry. Every once in a while I will have a slight back ache like when I was on the medicine, but not very often. Even my red marks are fading. :) I do have a bit of indentions on my cheeks, but it's a million times better than my acne. I've had maybe three tiny pimples since stopping Accutane, and I'm not oily at all. I would do it all again in a second. :D
