DAY 53

i seriously can't believe that time is going by so quickly. my skin is completely clear, and i havent gotten a pimple in almost a week. my skin is sooooo sooo so much better. the only thing that needs to get better are the red marks, but they cover up quite nicely with makeup. i am so happy, its unbelievable. best feeling in the world to wake up with clear skin. its not perfect yet, but its definitely getting there. i am about a week away from starting month 3, and after that i have 3 more month

DAY 43

finally, some change. my skin is definitelly a lot better. ever since my derm increased my dosage to 60 mgs a day, ive seen nothing but improvement. the first week it got a little worse because i got an IB from the increased dosage. I am breaking out less and less now and my skin is getting dryer and my lips are getting chappier but those are the only side effects. i'm so excited because i can finally kind of see what i will look like now without acne all over my face. hopefully it doesnt get an

DAY 26

i dont update this thing daily because i feel like a lot of the days my face stays the same. however, since i am nearly at the one month mark for accutane, i decided to update on my skin. it's been improving a LOT, my friends have been noticing and telling me that i'm clearing up which makes me really happy. i've been getting really flaky and dry lately, but im noticing that i break out less and less everyday. i have two small cysts on my forehead, but my cheeks and chin are clearing up. at

DAY 22

almost at the one month mark! i graduated high school today, thank gawd! my skin is improving, its not oily at all. i used to have to powder my face at least like every 30 minutes or so and now i dont even bring powder with me at all whenever i go out. i have a cyst under my eyebrow and its pretty painful, and i have about 2 cysts on my forehead. my chin is clearing up very nicely, i had a bunch of black heads on it before but now its all smooth. oh i have a cyst on my chin too. pretty sure my I

DAY 18

honestly, i've had absolutely no side effects from accutane except for the occasional lower back pain, which feels a lot like the back pain you get after doing a bunch of crunches, so its not even anything bad, and the obvious chapped lips and dry skin, and then all of a sudden out of nowhere i go to blow my nose and oh hello, blood! yeah. i got a nosebleed. it was kind of scary considering i haven't gotten a nosebleed since i was probably about 12, but i guess its because the accutane is drying

half way through the month. time goes by really fast while youre on these pills...i went to the beach today and didnt get burnt or anything, my skin is a lot more sensitive though and i got a tan even though i applied spf 30 religiously. i have absolutely no oil on my face, and the best part is that i only have to wash my hair like 2 times a week. its awesome. my forehead looks like its clearing up, and my skin feels a lot smoother, but there are still a loooot of pimples and cysts that n

DAY 5

so today is day 5, i just took my second pill of the day. nothing too major has been happening, all the gunk out of my face is coming out and i have a lot of underground cysts. i'm guessing this is my initial breakout. my lips are chapped, but not severely yet. its kind of annoying but i can only imagine that things will get much drier from here... i've been drinking soooo much water, its not even funny. 3 huge fiji bottles a day! as for side effects, i havent really had any yet. t

DAY 1/2

Hey everyone, today is my second day of being on Claravis, the generic form of Accutane. Let me just give you a brief history of my acne struggles: I started breaking out when I was about 12. I am now almost 18. At first, the breakouts were nothing to be worried about, I only got about 2 pimples or so, but since the beginning they have always been cystic. When I was a freshman in highschool, I started breaking out pretty badly but it was still considered moderate. I started getting facia
