My last Month on Accutane/weird smelling urine/Urgent care visit

Hey everyone so Like most people I stopped blogging on my progress for awhile because there were no changes. I finally stopped breaking out! NEVER THOUGHT I WOULD SAY THAT!!! My skin is starting to clear up from all the hyper pigmentation and I will post pictures on here tomorrow. I am so happy and cant wait to see how my skin looks when there is no redness.  So I went to my dermatologist last Friday and she said I have one month left on 60mg. I am so scared to get off of it, I want to be o

Month 3, Day 83

Hey everyone so my dermatologist kept me on 60mg and honestly I was really disappointed. Right after I saw her my skin broke out pretty bad and left me feeling pretty discouraged. I am going to ask her to up my dosage next month. Here are my progress pics for this month. Nothing new to report and probably wont have anything new to report anymore aside from the fact that I did break out bad this month. I have only two months left on accutane after this month and I am so scared to get off of it. M

Month 2, Day 66 on 60mg

Hey so I know I've been gone for three weeks, But its been the holidays and a crazy month! I have developed really bad eczema on my hand and ankles, I have a dermatology appointment in 4 days so I will be asking for some sort of a topical cream to treat that. I have still had the normal nose bleeds every now and then and the crazy dry lips. Nothing Aquaphor cant fix! I had absolutely clear skin for about 2-3 weeks and just a few days ago I broke out with 3 small cysts on my jawline. I thin

Nose Job while on Accutane

Hey everyone I thought I would share some information with you all because it is possible someone out there could be going through the same thing. So I have been wanting to get Rhinoplasty for at least 8 years and recently I came in to some money  that would finally make that a reality for me. Well before I went to see my dermatologist I noticed that the tiniest surfaces scratches on my skin would take 5x as long to heal and they always end up scaring... I barely scratched myself with a pencil

Month 2, Day 46/ 60mg /Pictures

Hey everyone so I know its been awhile but I have been super busy! So here is an update: I went to my dermatologist two weeks ago and she decided to up my dosage to 60mg. while I was there she said everything seemed to be going good and that I should be done with getting an initial breakout (lets hope). Last week I had three cystic bumps on my left cheek but those went away like all the other ones have. It sucks having them in the moment, but once they go down things always look up.  I don't h

Hey everyone, this post is gonna be a little bit shorter because I am gong to the dermatologist in 3 days so I will update everyone more after my visit with her. I will also be uploading a picture of my progress after being on 40mg for one month. So far I am so happy with the results and I can't wait to show you all how my skin is looking!

Day 24/ Breakout/ Moderate acne turned cystic

Thought I would update everyone on the past 4 days since I wont be able to tomorrow because it's my 21st birthday!!! (and yes I will be drinking while on Accutane tomorrow. My mom is a doctor and she said that since I am on a low dose drinking wouldn't damage my liver) The day after I updated everyone I formed another cystic pimple on my left jaw line  ... it's really weird because when I had my first initial breakout all the cystic pimples that I had on the right side of my face decided to swi

Day 20. Jojoba Oil

Almost One month on Accutane! Yay!!! So far everything has stayed the same for me, my lips are still dry, I have some dry patches on the back of my hands, and I produce absolutely no oil! My skin had been looked amazing the past few days but on day 17 I got an under the skin pimple on my left cheek bone and a small pimple on the right side of my face. I think this happened because I did skip a day of Accutane and didn't wash my face that day ( ewwww I know). Sometimes you just get crazy busy wit

Day 14, Week 2. Initial Breakout? + Oil Cleansing Method.

Day 11 I woke up with 3 huge under the skin pimples on my chin and I could feel one under my skin on the right side of my cheek bone. I'm assuming this is the initial breakout? I never get pimples on my chin..these are the worst pimples I have ever had. The only good thing about them is that they are under the skin and not red at all. Day 12: I woke up with another pimple on the right side of my face, however this one is a small whitehead. I put on makeup today and it looked horrible on my skin.

Day 10 on Accutane

Day 10 First 5 days: Hey everyone so today is day 10 of being on 40mg everyday. The first 5 days I didn't notice any significant changes, however I did get a cluster of 4 big whiteheads around my chin/jawline. I was unsure if this was because of the Accutane or because I was about to start my period in a few days? I am going to assume the acne was a result of both the Accutane and my hormones because I usually never get such bad acne on my jawline.  Day 6-10: On day 6 is when I started to not

Day 1

As you can see I have moderate acne, I will get maybe 5 cysts a year. I usually wake up to 2 new pimples every week which leave very bad hyper pigmentation that will last for more then 6 months. I am lucky in that I do not get bad acne on my forehead, back, and chest. I get all of my acne on my cheeks and recently it has been leaving ice pick scars, that is when I got serious about tackling my acne. Today is my first day taking 40mg, and the one thing I am nervous about is dry lips and eyes beca
