Day 47Ish?

So I haven't updated forever, sorry about that. I've just gotten really busy with summer vacations and work and everything. Also, everything has been going amazingly, so there hasn't been a ton to write about. I suppose I'm past the point of even having to worry about getting an initial break out, in fact, I haven't had a real "break out" since the day I started accutane. A pimple here and there, sure, but nothing too distressing. At the moment I have one dried up pimple on my forehead and tha

Day 19 And Still Doing Well :)

Day 19! I have to go have my bloodwork redone somewhat soon and I'm dreading it... I don't do well with needles. But oh well, it's totally worth it. Results so far: Amazing, this is the part of my cycle where I normally break out badly. Last month (pre-accutane) around this time I probably got about 5 or 6 somewhat painful pimples/ whiteheads on my cheeks/ the sides of my chin. This month, one whitehead right next to my nose and that's it. My skin really has been great since starting my

I'm Bored With The "day ##" Titles...

It's day 11 and everything is still going well! I only have one legitimate active pimple (white-head) on my face right now on my right cheek. And I guess there are a couple tiny ones on my forehead that are somewhere in a stage between dried up pimple and flattened red mark. Also, something new to me: I've been getting an occasional, well, I don't really know what they are... it's almost like an under-the-skin pimple, somewhat on the larger size in terms of circumference, but they're ju

Day 6

So today is day 6, and I can honestly say my skin looks better already! Granted, it's the time when I clear up anyway, but normally not THIS much. I haven't gotten a single new pimple since I got a couple of tiny ones on day 3, and they've all cleared up for the most part. I basically have no pimples on my face at all right now... there are a couple bumps from ones that are toward the end of the healing process, and of course my usual red marks, but even those seem to be getting better. I swi

Day 2

Today is a good day! I woke up and my skin actually looked decent enough to go to the gym makeup-free. No new pimples and the 4 I had from my monthly breakout are going away. Obviously I know it's probably not the accutane kicking in yet. This is the point in my cycle where I clear up anyway. On top of that, the hair dresser cutting my hair told me I have beautiful hair, and the cashier at ulta asked me if I always use Mario Badescu products and said I "have really good skin." I guess I've b

Day 1

So after 5 years of seeing my dermatologist, I've finally decided to do accutane and I just took my first pill today! Here's some background on me (if anyone's actually reading this): I'm 21 and since about age 15 I've had light-moderate acne (I've been 95% clear at times, but moderate at other times.) I know several of you are probably thinking "light to moderate ance on accutane, not worth the side effects, derm shouldn't have prescribed it, blah blah blah" but hey, I've realized that I let m
