Day Ninety With A Picture!

So here I was under the impression my account got deleted.. -___________- It was up all along! D: So the two pictures on the left are day one, and the one on the right is day ninety. I am taking a six day break because my script is not filled quite yet, it takes forever usually...

Still Haven't Figured It Out...

So i'm 100% clear to where I have a freckle that I never knew I had hahaha. Even though I still have 2 more months after this course is done and I honestly cannot wait at all. aeehdwewg g dfdsfdhrfyhh xjshhhsHHQUH

I Lost Track

It's been a minute since I've been on here! I've raised my dose with the ungodly expensive 30 mg. twice a day. If there is one recommendation I can make- Don't start this unless you have some money put away, or unless your insurance rocks because mine CLEARLY does not. -___- Anyways. I'm dryer than I ever have been, my face isn't as red though, but my eyes? I'm to the point of putting aquaphor practically IN them before I sleep so I don't wake up painfully crusty, and with allergy season

Day Fifty Five

So my progress has officially plateaued... I'm excited for my next visit to the doctor because I would really like to be off of this stuff as soon as possible. It's such a hassle taking it and it's difficult being consistent with it. I'm doing well with my side effects (or lack therof) and I really couldn't complain except for the current situation haha. I get comments saying I look gaunt? -______________________- I look fine, I don't feel exhausted unlike others who mention that they feel tire

Day Forty Four.

So far so decent. I'm on the same dose as last month, so I'm quite positive that my progress has plateaued and I won't start seeing anything huge until I raise it to the 60 mg. a day that my doctor wanted me to do this month. My only complaints now are how dry I am (inside and out, I feel very dehydrated, granted, however, there is zeroooooo precipitation where I live- it's cold and dry so it's the 19th time around for that). My lips are to the point where I may as well use sand paper to get the

Day Thirty

I wish I had marvelous news but I really don't haha. The doc wanted to raise my dose, but I denied that at $700.00 for the next thirty days... So I'm still on 40mg. a day and I'm terrified I may plateau.. but from day 60-90 I hope to raise it to at least 60 or so a day to get this process going further. -.- but other than that, my skin looks wonderful! I'm getting even more and more comments on it it's mad

Day Twenty Four.

Colorado serves my skin ZERO justice... It's so dry, cold, and ruins it. The bloody noses have persisted quite a bit, although I barely get them now since I've been putting aquaphor in my nose My hair is dry to the point where whenever I wash it, the two times a week that I do (if that), I am not shampooing, I'm only using deep conditioner. Which I can't complain about at all! I'm using that aveda scalp revitalizer still, twice a day, and then I use moroccan oil (the heavy oil right out of the

Day Nineteen.

So I decided (out of laziness and over anticipation) to postpone images until I'm more into my treatment. This stuff really is amazing and I still am doing research as to how it does what it does... After tomorrow, I'll be done with my second pack of ten gels which I'm pretty stoked about. As far as continued side effects go... Pain all over my body hasn't changed- just my old injuries, which are persistent but not enough for me to take too much consideration into (I can still run without my kn

Day Ten.

Pretty crazy stuff! Day ten, just finished my first pack of ten gels, and I quit paying attention to my skin, honestly, and I've been going off of opinions. All I've really heard was that my skin is REALLY improving. And I'm red, dry, peeling, my lips are annoying... Really, the only part of me really broken out is my forehead. In cosmetology school, I learned that forehead breakouts are a result of a bad diet, which ill admit, I eat pretty horribly (20 pieces from Mickey -D's are my best friend

Day Four.

So I didn't really want to post again so soon, but I had to because this stuff is really working already! It's crazy, I've already went into my initial breakout which is hideous but I guess that means it's working? I've kept my skincare routine the same... I currently use Dior HydraLife Créme Confort Pro-Jeunesse, which is really thick, but I think I'll go back to my Créme de la Mer, which has been my go to for ages now... I need to use a lot of lotion as my skin has already dried up. My favorit

Day One.

So I basically got a profile on here to try and help/support anybody with acne. It sucks. I'm the millionth person to say they've tried everything, but I literally have tried IT ALL. I went onto Retin-A .01% along with Doxycycline and topical clindamycin that became my go to treatment when it got out of hand (this was about five years ago or so). What initially broke me out was Proactiv. I never had a single spot until I used it once, and no, not too abrasively, but I used it and what happens? M
