Day 133

Wow I can't believe it has been so long since my last post! Tomorrow is week 19.. I am supposed to be on a 20 week regimen and I am thinking I will have to extend it. While my skin is clear of active pimples and no more cysts or anything of that nature, I have scarring on my cheeks, major redness, and still uneven. All in all, I am not happy. I see all of these before and after and the afters are people with such smooth even PERFECT skin. Not sure if genetics has something to do with this

Day 77

So it's been a while since Ive posted. As far as the condition of my skin right now there have been no active pimples. There have been a couple bumps on my chin where I've always broken out but that's about it. My skin is really smooth and hasn't been dry really. When I'm in the shower I circulate my fingers around my face and a bunch of dead skin falls off and my skin is then ridiculously smooth. My lips are unreal dry. Granted I haven't been drinking as much water as I did at the beginning but

Day 26

About a week ago I wrote an entire post and my computer crashed so let me see if I can remember everything.. My stomach pains went away thankfully. Sometimes, when I have been laying down and I get up my upper ribs have a sore feeling but it's nothing crazy. The past few days or maybe a week has been when I've DEFINITELY felt I was on accutane. It came to the point that my lips were so incredibly dry that there was nothing I could do but deal. They have been so dry that they are numb

Day 12

So today is day 12. Things have been going well. Again, I drink a TON of water and haven't seen much dryness besides on my lips which i apply the aquaphor and/or vaseline. The only thing that makes me kind of nervous is that two days ago I was feeling some uncomfortableness/minor pain in my life side after working out, kind of right where my ribs are. I wouldn't even go as far as to say pain but it was something I have never felt before. I googled it and it said that it could possib

1St Week On Accutane Complete!

It's so crazy to me that I'm finally doing this and that soon enough my acne will be gone. I think this every single time I take a pill. I could cry I'm so excited!! Well no major changes. My lips were really tingly today. Not sure why. My skin is also red but no dryness. I have been good at carrying a veinte Starbucks cup around with me full of water and staying conscious of whether I seem at all dehydrated. Lastly, one side effect I've noticed it the major fatigue. I'm pretty sure

Day 6

Today was the first day I spotted dryness. Specifically on my forehead. Also I noticed that of I peel off the top layer of a white head (bad habit) the inside is really liquidy. I took a shower and rubbed all the dead skin off my forehead and as I was rubbing I got some off my nose as well. My skin has been a little more raw but nothing crazy. I finished my shower with Cetaphil lotion and image vital c serum - after washing with clarisonic and Cetaphil cleanser. I almost went to bed without putt

Day 1-5

So after over a decade of acne I finally made the big leap to get accutane! I am 23 and have dealt with acne ever since elementary school. Even though it was more of just pimples here and there from as early as 10-15 it progressively got worse and worse. I literally tried any and everything you can think of multiple. I had thought about accutane but I was so put off by the side effects and I thought I could cute it myself. Within the last few years I really was trying to find a breakthrough. I h
