The second week of Acutane has been good... some pimples are still coming out but I can already see a difference in my pores..and a decrease in oil in my skin. My skin has ALWAYS been sooooo greasy, thats deffinetley another thing I am looking forward too. Acutane is suppose to help with greasy skin as well as greasy hair which is a deffinite PLUS The second week I started experiencing the terrible dry lips, its easy to take care of though, just make sure you ALWAYS have chapstick on hand. You might need a water bottle by your side too, everynight while im sleeping my throat gets extremely dry, but water fixes that. I can't wait to see the improvements by the end of this week.
During the first week of my Acutane I was soooooooo excited to start..I was aware of the initial breakout that was going to happen. Which it did, all of the pimples that were stuck inside came out, and I was perfectly fine with that! It deffinetley gets worse before it gets better, so be prepared and just know that it will be one of the LAST TIMES you will breakout During the first week be patient, be excited.. keep in mind that this is helping you to clear your face as well as prevent acne! MAKE SURE YOU BUY YOUR CHAPSTICK YOU'LL NEED IT BY THE SECOND WEEK!
My name is Destiny and I am 22 years old. I am a model and a dancer. In my case acne is even harder to deal with..because im in the limelight and in front of the camera. I have even battled depression from Acne. Acne can seriously be something that can ruin your life, you don't feel yourself, you don't want to hang out with friends or take pictures, it ruins your confidence, just about ruins everything! I have been suffering with bad skin since the 6th grade. It started out on my forehead and as the years went on I had breakouts anywhere. It was not until a few months ago that I was so tired of my acne that I decided to do something about it. I started with birth control, called Lo Estren..and thats when things went BAD. I have severe acne all over my face there was not one clear spot anywhere and it hurt! (there were little dots everywhere under my skin) I tried..Solodyn, and doxy..NOTHING WORKED. So finally...my last resort is Acutane. Follow my blog to learn about my journey with Acutane. I think it is so important to help others as much as I can! I know how it feels, I know how you feel and I want to help!
