DAY 69

DAY 69 So, I just started my third month late last week. I can honestly say, I can see significant improvements in my skin! At first, I didn't notice, then I looked at pictures from when I started. Holy crap, what a difference! I have started to get compliments on my skin and it's becoming so smooth. Literally, I woke up one day and all my blackheads were gone and there were no actives on my face. I had one on my jaw line two days ago, but it was a little pimple. Not a cyst at all. I just c

DAY 55

DAY 55 Wow, day fifty five. I haven't updated in so long, so much has changed! Since my dosage was raised I have been significantly drier (duh). I used to wake up each morning with my face an complete oil slick, now I'm pretty dry except for a little oil on my nose. Speaking of my nose, around my last post I extracted all my blackheads. Well, they all came back and now they are like completely at the surface. I'm not extracting them this time, I'm going to let them do it themselves. I still

DAY 30

DAY 30 Goodness, I cannot believe I've gotten through month one! I am so thankful I am one month down.. I really haven't experienced horrible side effects though, the dryness and itchiness under my nose has subsided and doesn't bother me one bit anymore. I'm not really dry anywhere, I am so so happy my dermatologist bumped up my dose. I am now taking 30mg twice a day. Hopefully I'll start seeing some improvements! Things are basically still the same as before, my forehead is better but has

DAY 16

DAY 16 Wow, I cannot believe it has been alittle over two weeks. They have gone by so quickly. So here's my update around my mouth is super dry, if I don't moisturize it gets disgusting. And if I don't put aquaphor on my lips I feel them burning and drying out. But I've been pretty consistent with both. A big problem area with dryness is under my nose! Boy it really gets itchy and hurts if I don't use excessive amounts of moisturizer. I am a huge idiot because I started popping everything t

DAY 6 & 7

DAY 6 & 7 It's one week! WOOHOO! I can't believe that time has gone by. So, I went out last night for the first time since being single and wasn't able to write on here in time. I actually ended up taking my medicine two hours later then I was suppose to, but hey, I was a tad bit distracted. And I'm writing this early so I can head to bed early tonight, I'm exhausted because I had to go to work today. So, updates. The pimple in my nose is smaller but under my nose still itches like

DAY 4 & 5

DAY 4 & 5 Sorry I wasn't able to check in yesterday, my internet wasn't working and I was just way too tired to even attempt to fix it. My boss has me working so much before school starts, I wish he would lay off alittle. Anyway, my new symptoms are my face is soo itchy! I'm still super oily but under my nose was soo icky and random places would get a random painful itch. Also, my scalp gets random itchies too. Like really bad itches. Not common for me at all. I have a huge and very pai

DAY 3

DAY 3 Okay, today I really don't have much news. My face looks so gross because I have tons of whiteheads that are begging to be popped. But I'm trying to resist the urge to pick. The pimple I popped on my chin yesterday.. bad idea. I woke up with a scab on my chin. Yuck! I have a cut on the right side of the corner of my mouth. Definitely from Accutane because I don't get them other wise. That's about it. I'm still super oily! Can't wait to see progress but I'm nervous for the initial brea

DAY 2

DAY 2 Hello! I am on day two and just took my pill. I took it a half hour earlier then yesterday because I decided I want to take them at nine o'clock instead of ten. Today my skin was still super oily (the usual). My lips actually do feel a little drier and I haven't had time to get to the store to buy all the products I want. I am currently using the Clinique 3 Step system for Extra Dry skin. Hopefully after work tomorrow I will be able to head to the local Wal-Mart and buy all my goodie

DAY 1

DAY 1 Hello All. I start Claravis 30 mg today. I took it at 10 PM with a pbj and a big glass of water. We'll see how everything goes. I am posting pictures of how my acne is now.. Please don't be cruel, it's taken me alot of guts to post these. Acne is an embarrassing thing. I know you can't tell in the picture but I have HUGE pores and millions of blackheads everywhere. I'm really crossing my fingers hoping that it will fix both problems. Support and advice is appreciated! See you tomorr

Let Me Tell You About Myself

Hello! I am a sixteen year old female who lives on the east coast. I have always struggled with blackheads since puberty and during the beginning of November 2009 I started with a breakout that continually got worse and never cleared up. So here I am with my last option of the highly controversial Accutane. I am very skeptical also but this is truly my last option and I crave beautiful, clear skin. So, I am going to try and blog everyday for the first week then once a week until I finish to answ
