Day 12 - Cautiously optimistic!

So I'm nearing the end of Day 12 on Accutane. It's been a few days since I've posted as I've been out of town. At this point, I'm extremely happy with how things are progressing. Today, my skin is the best it has been in at least few months. It feels much smoother and I have alot less active pimples. I'm still getting a couple papules or pustules each day but I can't believe how fast they dry up and flake off. Still have alot of hyperpigmentation from past blemishes though. Overall, my fa

Day 5 - Stable, no side effects yet

My face is still pretty stable, I'm continuing to get about the same amount of papules/pustules each day that I did pre-accutane. No more, no less.

I was breaking out quite a bit the last couple of days prior to starting the pills, this seems to be controlled at this point (knock on wood). My face and lips were dry prior to starting accutane so I'm just waiting for my face to flake off. So far, so good. I need to go out and get a good lip moisturizer before my lips start to crack. I decided last minute to go away with friends next weekend, so I'm just hopin

DAY 1 - Let's get it started!

Here's my little diary of my accutane journey because I am a little freaked out and feel the need to write it all down. I'm a 25 year old female, always had mild acne but got significantly worse just this past year. Located pretty much only on my lower face/chin/jawline. Really leaving alot of hyperpigmentation after each break out. Tried all the topicals as well as Diane 35 OCP and doxycycline to no avail. It's really affecting my self esteem and I'm pretty obsessed with getting rid of
