Months 2-6

I know I haven't written in months but that's because I have had zero acne and zero complications. If I could be on this drug for the rest of my life, I would. I end accutane in 6 days and I'm honestly sad. So let's get to acne stuff: I haven't had an actual pimple in what seems like forever. I had one on my cheek and it was weird lol. No cysts, no breakouts on my body and I haven't been oily whatsoever. I wash my face with a bar of soap or Neutrogena Morning Burst face wash. I do

Week 8

I know I'm writing 2 days early but I just have alot to say lol So I did a lot of changing what I put on my face, how I wash my face and just everyday tasks. Acne: Currently I have not one pimple on my face (knock on wood, oh jeez lol) I used to wash my face with Dove plus moisturizer, NO GOOD! Not for my face. My boyfriend had Irish Spring bar soap in the shower and I used it for a few days and I have not one more cyst. I have had I think 3 small whiteheads in the last 2 weeks. I

Weeks 5-7

Oh my goodness! Sorry it's been so long since I've blogged. Between Halloween and school I haven't been able to get on here. So! Since the last time, I went to the derm and he changed my dosage and gave me this prescription moisturizer to put on my chin because it was so incredibly dry. I got an airbrush tan before halloween because I didn't want to risk it being in the UV light. It came out good but I needed that moisturizer because the tan on my face went away pretty quick because it was

Week 4

Hey Followers! I can't believe it's been 4 weeks already. Let's get right to it. Acne: Cysts! My face has been controlled with cysts all around my chin. As soon as one goes away another one pops up. And not just cysts, but nodules. The ones that never go away. I layed out in the sun hoping that it'll blend in with a tan face and it has. No surprise there. I haven't had any papules or white heads lately so I think thats a plus. The old pimples though are still red. They're heale

Week 3

Hey friends It is week three and I am seeing the effects drastically. I started the week with some regular small pimples, like the last two weeks. But then yesterday I was having like a mental breakdown because my face was awful. So let's start with acne: I had a huge cyst on my head that was SO RED. My chin was awful and I had like scabby zits and two big cysts on my chin. Everything was so red and inflamed. So I HAD to get away from the mirror! I sat outside in the sun and thou

Week 1

So I have officially been on Accutane for a week! My acne is drier. I had a cyst come on my chin for 2 days but not it has gone down alot. My smaller whiteheads though, I feel like they're not healing. They turn into a scab and its just stubborn and doesn't heal I might put some neosporin on it to help out. My face has been really dry around my chin but not my forehead. So I use Cetaphil Moisturizer. Not a lot because I still use some powder foundation and it's a little sticky, but enou

Before and Day 1 & 2.

So I wanted to do this blog because I know I searched through Acne.org and read everyone's Accutane blogs. I wanted to know EVERYTHING, and I'm sure I'm not alone. Background: I had acne since I started middle school. It's was pretty moderate throughout middle/high school, just regular high school acne is what I put it off as. Well my senior year of high school I started to get really painful cysts and they continued and got worse throughout college. I'm on my third year of college and fin
