1 Year And 4 Months Post Accutane

Hello! It's been awhile since i was here ... What can i say? My skin is not perfect yet,, far from being perfect actually but i started to accept my face hahaha i have periods when i feel so uncomfortable, especially when i meet someone for the first time but since i started college i can say my self-confidence has grown,, for example i had the "courage" to go at classes without any makeup,, ok i was forced by circumstances because i had an eczema under my eyes, and it was horrible,, but i w

Day 81 After Last Pill

hey! How are you? It's the 81th day without accutane and i don't have clear face yet:( i went to see another dermatologist and i said to her that i was on accutane and i asked her what i'm supposed to do now hahaha.

Day 337 ( Day 7 Month 12)

Day 337 ( Day 7 Month 12) Helloo! How are you? It's almost 1 year since i've started this journey and i don't know how i feel. I am not clear yet, but i'm thinking about giving up. I mean i have 44-45 kg and i reached my max. dose ( min is 120mg/kg and max 150/kg, isn't it?). I'm pretty sure that it's not ok to take more than my organism can lead. The next tuesday i'll go at my derm and we'll talk about this. A few weeks ago he said to me about BC pills. I've never taken these pill
