41 Days Post Accutane

So I stopped taking Accutane 41 days ago and since stopping Id say Ive only had about 2 zits since then. Thats amazing considering how bad it was before. I am still using the Trader Joes Nourish face wash, the Earth Sciences moisturizer, and the Bio oil. I still have some hyperpigmentation but it had significantly gotten much better. If I ever get a zit I just use a little bit of Daniel Kerns 2.5% Benzoyl Peroxide gel and the zit disappears overnight. I strongly reccomend anybody who is con

Day 122!

So I haven't updated in a while but I have been 100% acne free for like two months now and so I decided to stop taking accutane after 4 months. I have like 17 days left. I am confident in my decision as I am tired of taking this poisnonous drug and am confident my acne won't return as I will continue to be very persistent on my skin care regimen. I am tired of the back pain and the horrible dryness my skin has. Im sure my oil glands are destroyed enough. haha. I am still using the Bio Oil

Day 107!

So I have been completely acne free for like 2 weeks now. Ive been using the Bio Oil every day and Im starting to see results from that with my acne scars. its making my skin super hydrated and not oily suprisingly. I switched my face wash to Giovanna Dtox and I dont really know how I feel about it yet as it isn't as sudsy as my Basis Cleaner clean face wash but the Giovanni face wash has activated charcoal and goji berry so it sounds good to me. Oh and it has volcanic ash too. I even put t

Day 94!

Ok so I have lots to update unlike usually. So Ive only had like 2 really really small zits that lasted like 2 days and they were so small you just couldnt see them unless you came really close. I have been trying something new and its actually been working super well. Ive been adding about 3 drops of bio oil to my moisturizer and that bio oil goes a long way. The bio oil makes my skin very soft and it has not been breaking me out at all! My dermatologist appointment is tomorrow and Im sure

So first off I wanna say thanks to everyone for reading my blog now that I have over 4000 views! I havent had one zit until today I got a very very small one that will be gone in a day or two. I've noticed Accutane is making me not very hungry at all. My skin has been really dry and Im using all the same products. Im almost halfway done with Accutane! My hyperpgimentation is still there and I am patiently waiting for them to fade. Theres not really much else to update. Keep reading!!!

Day 78!

So here I am I cant believe im 78 days into Accutane. I still feel the same and I still have those stupid red marks and I wish theyd go away but the derm told me it'll talke 6-12 months. My skin was clear since my last blog update until yesterday I got 3 small pimples. No biggie theyre getting smaller already and they're pretty small. I still use the same moisturizer (Earth Science Spf 15+ almond-aloe moisturizer) and I swithced my eye cream (not that it effects my acne I just think its good

Day 68!

So I actually missed a few days of Accutane like day 60-63 because I ran out of my medication but im back on and all good. My skin is continuing to clear. I have like two small pimples right now and my hyperpigmentation fades more and more everyday. I am using all the same products and everything like that. I keep forgetting to talk about how my nose keeps getting severely dry on the inside. I've been putting lotion right on the inside of my nose because its been getting so dry that I've be

Day 59!

So I just had a really bad breakout on the right side of my face but I think its from a new product. My skin is still really dry and other than this break out my skin is really starting to clear up. I wish I had more to update but unfortunately I dont. I have to go to the dermatologist Friday and I hope everything checks out okay. Ill update you guys soon but I meant theres really nothing to share cause I think this is gonna take some time. Haha. If only you took it for a week and your ac

Day 49!

So my skin is starting to flake more and my face feels tight as if its about to start peeling. I just had a breakout a few days ago but it is going away now as my skin is getting drier and drier. I know I keep saying I think results are soon but Id say in another month or so ill be basically acne free. My lips have still been dry but I have been exfoliating them daily and I am using my Olay Pro-x once a day as I find it can be irritating if done twice a day. My forehead is 100% clear of blemi

Day 41!

So im like really starting to clear up now. My skin is flaky and my lips are peeling and its gross because my friend actually said something about it to me. I use lots of lip balm too. I use a stereroid lip balm 3-4 times a week as directed by my dermatologist. It only seems to help when its actually on my lips. I only have a few very small zits on my face. There are alot of red marks though and they will take time to heal. I use the Olay Pro-X cleansing brush and I think it works better t

Day 36!

So pretty much the same stuffs going on. I stopped the use of Bio-Oil as I do not want to make my skin oily. I really believe results are just around the corner as my skin is getting drier. My lips are so chapped I hate having to literally put lip balm on non stop like not one minute can I go without it. Im starting to get really dry pathces of skin on my body and I am moisturizing as much as I can. I still use the Basis Cleaner Clean face wash and that awesome Earth Sciences SPF 15 moisturiz

Day 30!

So I went to the derm yesterday and everything checked out okay. I am now going to be taking two 40 Mg pills a day. Im still breaking out and this is frustrating. Im hoping with the higher dosage I start seeing some results here soon! I finally got the SPF 15 Earth Sciences Moisturizer from Whole Foods and it has glycolic acid in it which is helping my skin stay flake free and its a small amount so it doesnt irritate at all! I am now also using Bio-Oil at night to start helping fade some sca

Day 19!

My breakouts came back They seem to be starting to go away though again. Hopefully it gets better soon. I havent really had any symptoms except dry lips and the occasional sore knees. Im still in the beginning of this journey. Im still using the basis cleaner clean face wash and I am spot treating with the Acne.org benzoyl peroxide then I follow with the Earth Sciences unscented moisturizer which literally makes it so my skin isnt dry at all. Theres antioxidants in it as well which can he

Day 11!

So my breakouts seem to be diminishing. My skin has gotten drier but with my daily moisturizer I am flake free. I have noticed my eyes are getting dry and my legs hurt whenever I bend down on them. This never happened before accutane. My skin is still getting oily. I hope things get better soon. I am still using all the same products that I was using before.

End Of Day Six!

Hi so I should start out with some info about myself. I am 18 years old and I have moderate acne. I have a lot of dark spots from old acne. I hope it goes away soon if not I will be getting laser surgery six months after taking Accutane. I am currently on 40 mg of Accutane everyday. I have to take Accutane for six months. Im not gonna sit here and go on about it but I have literally tried everything there is for acne. I know Accutane can have serious side effects but I think its worth the r
