Experiencing Extreme Hair Loss Quitting Accutane 20Mg A Day :|

Hey guys, I haven't posted much of updates but as you would all know by now my acne is completely gone. As much as I wanted to stay on the accutane and as much as I have tried to tough out the side effect this one is just way too harsh... I'm losing a lot of hair right now. I tried taking Biotin when I noticed it, applying oils for the day and washing my hair least as possible. However a few days ago I decided I seriously needed a shower. I was so scared to take one as every time I take on

Some Advice To Those Who Are Stubborn Like I Was

So first off I want to say lets face it. No, really lets face it, we have acne. If your face is full of zits and you're all like "Why can they eat whatever the hell they want with a clear face and I can't cause supposeably it causes MY acne?" Well, I don't know much about whether things like eating junk food or such things as smoking can cause acne. I do however know that many people eat whatever they want and do not have a acne prone face. I was very stubborn in actually eating right and occass

70 Days On Accutane A Word Of Advice

Hi! Happy 2013 every one, I hope this is a better year for everyone! Okay well as I mentioned before I was still breaking out. The first thing I choose to do to try to reduce the time frame of when I would break out and how much is I changed my daily lifestyle. I cut out fast foods, energy drinks (had to have one every day) and cut down on my smoking. I started drinking AS MUCH water as possible. And THAT did major changes immediately to my skin. However after about 5 days or 6 of that I sti

Day One Thousand Six Hundred And Sixty Four. Just Kidding.

It ultimately feels like I've been on Accutane forever. I haven't stopped breaking out. I get the oddest pimples too. Just two days ago arose the most deepest beautiful pimple, actually i'm quite lucky it was on my chin line somewhere I prefer rather than on my cheeks or the "front of my face" so to speak. I cannot explain how much I hate not exfoliating! GRRR. I mean it. What I must say though is the right side of my face (mypointofview) is fighting me to its death. It really is, i'm having the

Props To The Lady Working At Sephora

Once again props to the lady working at Sephora! I went to the mall recently and happened to go through a small sephora store. One of the beautiful gals working there had problem skin. She had really bad cystic acne. I thought to myself wow that girl is amazing. Now I know I worked as a cashier through one of my worse breakouts ever and that was absolutely shitty. I never missed a day either. However I couldn't imagine working in make up retail, where it is based on your SKIN and other peopl

Listen To Your Skin Not The Derms!

I all together broke it off with Cetaphil. As I mentioned on here before the lotion was doing me no good and the more I paid attention to the cleanser found I wasn't happy with it either, or my skin wasn't. My ex Derm told me to use Cetaphil everything and my current Derm didn't mention any certain brand to me (he doesn't speak much) so I trusted the "derm". My skin just hasn't been agreeing with Cetaphil lately at all. So I decided to listen to my skin, as we all should regardless of what a pro

The Good And Bad!

Can't sleep thought I'd write a few things that have helped and haven't helped my skin clear up. Things I have found are bad for my Skin- Cetaphil lotion has definitely contributed to my acne worsening. I was reading a lot of reviews about Cetaphil and it being so over hyped and not good for problem skin. Idk I read terrible things about the wash too but I have no personal problems with it. The lotion however lays really heavily and really seems to aggravate my skin. Topicals.

There's Never A Dull Moment With Accutane! 2 Week Mark

One day i'm like YAY and the next i'm like nay. Ups and downs with Accutane. One day it seems like progress is looking amazing and the next I have new pimples. 2 days ago I wanted to write a blog but i didn't because it hadn't been two weeks. I was super excited that day because I finally paid attention to my skin since I had been obsessing over my hair that had been purple, gray and platinum (bleaching problems). [email protected] not a natural blonde problems. I had noticed the left side of my face had c

5 Days On Accutane, Almost A Week!:)

Almost a week on Accutane! SO EXCITED. Side effects from Accutane i've been getting are headaches and a new one today dry lips. At the start of my work shift I was like "Hm my lips feel a little dry" and by the end of day I was like "OMG I NEED CHAPSTICK" . It was really weird how it progressed pretty intensely throughout 1 day. Side effects from Cephalexin are no doubt the bowel movements. 3 times today the worse i've had it from Cephalexin. Ive been on Cephalexin for almost 2 weeks.

Dear Acne, Its Over! And We Are Never Ever Ever Getting Back Together! Kthx Love Desiree, I Would Say It's Been A Pleasure, But It Hasn't.

I currently feel like i'm going through a break up with acne. I was on Doxy for a good 6 to 8 months till my system got immuned to the anitbiotics. My acne quickly became cystic and painful. For a while I wasn't financially able to see a derm so it took a while. Then finally I went to see a derm and got prescribed Cephalexin and Accutane. Slowly but surely it's going away. I feel like i'm going through a break up with it, lol. I'm not an insecure person but acne makes me feel like one
