Updating.

Wow, I was just looking at my profile after I signed in, and I've had this account since 2004! That's nuts! Anyways tho, everything is going A-OK, pretty much still completely clear. I'll get a few here and there, but nothing thats lasts more than a day and/or is very small and non-inflammed. I wouldn't like to have to go on Accutane again, as well, near the end there I was really starting to get bugged by the sideffects, but I am glad I did go on it for the time that I did, it really di

3 Months

Sooo... It's been alittle over three months now that I've finished Accutane; end of June, July, August, September, start of Oct, k so more like four months but either way.Skin is looking awesome, havn't had any major breakouts since stopping, reddness is clearing niceless. I have been using Retin-A now for about five weeks or so, .04% strength, and I think thats whats really helping everything heal nicely, I would totally recoomend it, great for stopping any breakouits and for getting rid of any

Shopping

Back when I was really broke I used to use just the plain Dove bar on my face and it always worked really good. So today I went out and bought a pack, now that my accutane course is almost done, I'm going to try that, plus a Clean and Clear saliclic acid astringent. that way I have the gentle cleaning of the bar, but something medicated and alittle stronger to finish up and take off any remaining make-up. I'm hoping that works alright, I thinking that by using something medicated maybe it will s

Ten more days left!

So yeah, only ten more pills left then I['m DONE. That went fast and slow, I'm glad to be finsihed soon though, I;m really not a fan of taking pills, and some of the side effects (although pretty mild) are still getting annoying. MY EYES ARE SO DRY AND RED ALL THE TIME< ARGGGGG! Searously tho, my eyes are driving me nuts. I'm now thinking as to what I'm gonna do after \i finish. I think I'll ask the doctor maybe for some retinal-a and i'll have to get a good ance cleanser and lotion.

Pack number 5!

Well well, It's been a good month since I've posted last, but when there's not much new happeneing, you know... I can't have like twenty posts going "still good!", lol. Aw well, so anyways, yeah, completely clear, I havn't had a zit in who knows how long, and very rarely when I do, it's just alittle one that disapperars before the day is even out. If it stays like this even after I go off Accutane, !!!. That would be awesome, if it dosen't, I'm gonna try another round, my body is holding up well

Whoopsie

Lol. It's been awhile since my last update, when things are going good, you tend to kinda not dwell on it. Either way, yup, loving the Accutane, my skin looks good. Clear, the redness is going away, it's smoothed out quite abit. I just started my fourth month, so two more to go, and hopefully that will have taken care of that and will stay clear from now on. That's what I'm aiming for either way, lol. other than that, that's it really, like i said, things are working out nicely.

Seventy-Two

Am loving the Colorstay makeup, I usually don't like liquid foundation AT ALL, but this stuff, you only have to use the tinest amount, it dosen't rub off, dosen't get oily, looks very natural, awesome. I got it in Sand Beige and it's a pretty close match, not perfect, but enough that where the foundation ends and regular skin starts, it's still barely noticable, no harsh lines or anything. I use Bosica's makeup remover (which I highly recommend) in the evenings to remove, and as of yet had had

Third pack already, things are going fast now! So one random zit on my left cheek bone, but that seems to be it. Lump on my finger is still there...? Not sure about that. I am so dry lately!, I'm practically shriveling up, my eyes get really irratated, my lips are so chapped I have spots that are actually bleeding, my hair is crispy as fuck. I'm making sure I drink lots of water and mositurize, but yeah, I think there's not too much you can really do about that. Went out and bought the spf

Tired tired tired, totally staying home tonight and going to bed early, lol, shit's getting wild and crazy up here. Anyways, I am having an interesting problem, or situation, I dunno if it's quite a problem yet. I've aquired a large, hard, bump on the side of my finger, I've been telling people it's my secret conjoined twin, but searously, what the hell? It seems almost like bone, like it's completely hard, but I can't grow an extra piece to my finger that fast. It's coming right out of m

The big Five Oh

Fifty! Yikes. So as gross as this sounds, I think I'm gonna have to stop washing my hair or something. Maybe just start wrapping it during the day, it is so.so.dry, it's like fucking straw coming out of my head. I just put in abunch of argan oil and it feels alittle bit better, but still. So nothing new, two little ones that are drying out on my left jawline, and one on the right. I get alittle bit of oil on my forehead during the day, but that's going the whole day without a

Fourty... Eight!

So wow, how times flies, I'm almost at day fifty, I find once you pass thirty, then it all seems to kind of blend together. Anyways, so my skin seems to be pushing out the last few ones, I get like one small one on my jaw line now and then, but that's it. Almost all the blackheads are gone! My nose pores and empty and skrinking, yehaw. lol. omy, I can't even think right now, my roommate is playing the most intense crazy sounding techno I've ever heard, lol, I can't concentrate on a single t

Forty!

So yesterday totally was the thirty-nineth. Anyways, I have another new zit!!! Just a small one, on my cheek, but urg, not liking at ALL. It better be because I'm (get ready for TMI) getting close to my period, but yuck. Still, I shouldn't bitch too much as well, considering how shit was just like three weeks ago, three zits ain't NOTHING. BOught myself a jar of Maybelline's Dream Matte Mousse, gonna try that stuff out. Hopefully not as dry as powder, but less gross than liquid,

Thirty-Eight

I think, or thirty-nine? Lol. Anyways, two little tiny ones on my left cheek, but they seem to be right at the surface and going away already. I think that might be from Saturday, when I went to Spehora, the make-up girl had the un-socliatated idea (lol, searously, I just about cryed as she wiped my regular foundation off with some werid foaming cleanser and kleenex, my poor accutane skin) to apply NARS Sheer something-something-foundation to my face. I don't think my skin was too happy, i

Thirty Seven

Screw liquid foundation, I almost forgot how much I don't like the finish. Ended up buying Make Up Forever's HD Foundation, which IS a good one, but eh, not for me. I like matte, super matte, I'm gonna head to Sephora tommorow after work and extange it for my usual Mineral Compact, whatever if it's abit dry, I don't like shine. Anyways, little zit by the bottom of my mouth, left side, other than that, nothing else new. My pores are finally starting to empty, in their wake they've left ti

I'm gonna go out (as soon as I stop procrastinating) and buy a new foundation. The powder one I'm using, I like it and all, but my skin is WAY WAY to dry for powder right now. I havn't been able to use a liquid in so long, super oily skin before, how exciting! haha. I'm thinking Sephora brand, I like their stuff and it's not TOO expenisve, just incase it sucks or something. So I had two beers last night and I'm probably gonna have a few drinks again tonight, I really hope this isn't gon

Second Month!

Alright! Starting on my second month, wow times goes by fast. Things are still going good, blackheads are really starting to fall out now, have had some biggies just drop out on their own, gross but pretty fricking cool too, haha. Do have one new zit though... on my neck! Which I never get, but the weather`s cold enough right now that I can just pull up my collar and that takes care of that! Ha. Still using the Cetaphil mosturizer and face cleaner, really liking that, if my skin permits I`m

Yes! Horrible breakout adverted! lol. All clear for tonight (lol my cat is licking my perfume off), just killing time til 7 then out I go. So excited. So status update: completely clear, red marks and blackhead galore still of course, but I can cover that up so it's not too tramatic. Blackheads are really starting to come to the surface now, some big nasty ones that must have just been chilling in my skin for years coming up. No wonder why, even when clear, my skin still tended to look kind

The inside of my nose is so dry now that I constantly have crustys around the bottom of it. Lol. Sometimes I'll be talking to someone and after we're done I'll touch there and die alittle inside, haha! I probably look like I have a massive coke problem or something. Sooo, I have a date on Saturday! That means, my skin better be completely awesome! If I randomly start phase three of my IB, I think I'll just cancel, adopt 14 cats and live the rest of my life as a reculsive cat lady. Haha.

Well, looks like Accutane is working it's magic, I got asked out today. Haha! Anyways tho, lol, everything is looking really good still, I'm thinking, maybe cuz my acne was more on the mild side, that might be it for my IB. It seems that more than anything, I have blackheads rather than zits. Which is alright with me, they don't look completely horrible when coming out, lol. my skin has taken on a kinda strange texture tho, it's like.... really, really smooth, in a werid sort of w

I'm probably totally jinxing myself with this, butttt... my skin looks fucking awesome right now, even after being awake since five this morning, plus being at work for 8 hours. Minus the left over dying remanents of the dying ones, and those godawful blackhead things, everything else, lookin' good! i'm so excited for what's going to come. i pulled acouple blackheads out when i got home, bad bad bad me. i really don't want to start picking at myself, it only causes bad things 90% of the

I used to have really oily skin, I would put my powder on in the morning, blot before I left the house, get to work, have to blot AGAIN, blot again maybe like eight frigging times during the work day. The last two days or so, my face has completely stopped producing oil, I didn't blot once today and nothing, not even the tinyest bit of shine, it's nice tho, not complaning one bit! haha. so yeah, stuff is still going good acne wise, a few of the old ones still need to go down completey an

Sooo... I'm almost afraid to type this, but... everything still seems to be going ok. three little ones on my forehead formed tho, but so far they just seem to be drying up and nothing else feels like it's coming up, so maybe that's that. I went out yesterday and bought myself a bottle of Cetaphil lotion and a bottle of the Cetaphil face wash stuff, my skin is so dry, and i think what i use usually is just to harsh for me now. And so far, the Cetaphil, it does seem to dry thinhgs out less,

AKA: day sixteen. lawl. So in about half an hour, when I stop being a lazy asshole, I'm gonna go in public, during the daytime (dundundaaa) for the first time since my horrible IB. I'm so scared!!11!. LOL. The only time've left my house since Wednesday was on New Years, in the dark, to hit up my friend's place, that's been IT.
