Why does my skin always clear up right before I go to the derm?

Why does my skin always clear up right before I go to the derm? It's kind of annoying, but I'm never gonna complain about my skin being too good. My skin is the best it's been since 2 years ago when I got my wisdom teeth out. Last time I went to her my skin wasn't that bad either, then I got a big breakout, and now that I'm going back it's cleared up again. I still have some red marks and scabs so she can see where pimples were, but I only have 5 actives and 4 of them are tiny and the bigger one

Ugh

My skin seems to be making up for last week by breaking out like crazy this week. I have 4 big pustules on my jawline and 1 on my cheek. I've been trying not to pop or pick at my skin lately, but I just gave in and popped the one in the middle of my cheek because it was driving me crazy. The ones on my jaw I can't see as much so it's easier to resist popping them. They really hurt though, especially when I bend over and the blood goes to my head. I'm really hoping I get to start Accutane on Dece

I've been on Diane-35 for 3 or 4 months now, so maybe that's why. Although before when I was on it for a year it didn't seem to help much. Maybe it's just a coincidence. My skin seems to randomly clear up for a while and then get worse again, even though I don't change my routine. I remember havin

A little background information...

Like I mentioned in my last post I've had acne for 8 years, since I was 12. I went to the doctor about it when I was 14. Over the years I tried several types of topicals, antibiotics and birth control pills and none of it has had any significant effect. My doctor referred me to a dermatologist last March because nothing he tried had worked. I tried to get her to prescribe me Accutane but she wanted me to try more antibiotics and topicals before she would give it to me, since I don't have severe

Finally!

Yesterday I went to my dermatologist and she finally agreed that Accutane might be a good option for me. She gave me an information packet and some forms and told me to do some research, talk to others who have been on it, and if I decided to proceed go get the bloodwork done and then call for an appointment. I've already done research and talked to others, and I've wanted to go on Accutane for years. This morning I went to the lab to get my blood taken because I want to get started as soo
