I am on my third day of month 3 and I couldn't be more pleased with my results thus far!! Almost all my acne is GONE! I do still get a pimple or 2 a week but they are always small and resolve within a day or two. I will say I am left with a lot of red marks, but they are all flat so with makeup they cover easily. I am hoping they fade completely in the next few months. As far as side effects go nothing has really changed. My skin is dry, but not as dry as it was last month. My lips are als
Oh my god! My skin has not looked this bad in forever, I literally want to hide out in my room until this is all over. However, I will say my blackheads are almost completely gone! I'm hoping they are totally gone within the next week or so. As far as new breakouts, I get a new one everyday. And they all seem to cluster around the corners of my mouth/chin. It's disgusting. I literally had about 8 whiteheads all in one area and I made the horrible decision to top them, which only made them sprea
Half way through month 1 and that much closer to being clear..thank god! So far things are going pretty good. I think I have been going through the purging stage for about the past week. I have gotten a couple inflammed pimples and tons of really small white heads all around my mouth and chin. And not to mention the blackheads, oh my god the blackheads Now I have always had a nose full of blackheads, but they were never so dark and prominent. I can now literally run my finger over my nose/goi
I have completed my first week of 80 mg/day of accutane, and I have definitely noticed some changes. The most obvious would be the dryness. My lips have definitely dried out, they aren't yet to the point where they are cracking or even look chapped, but they just feel very dry. I found an awesome product though that I HIGHLY recommend! It's called Waxelene, it's a petroleum jelly alternative that's organic and I'm telling you it makes my lips feel great and it doesn't leave me with that goopey
Ok, so here is my face today. I know it isn't THAT horrible, but for me this has always been my biggest insecurity. All the reddness on my cheek is just that, reddness from old acne (that might I add is taking its sweet sweet time in fading). And the mess on my chin is so red because I really went after them last night, hopefully they will calm down by tomorrow. Other than that, nothing to report. Will be back in about a week!
I am happy to say that I have completed my first day of my accutane (or Myorisan as my derm prescribed me). She has me starting on 80mg/day, which I believe is typically the highest dosage? I'm not sure though, I may be wrong on that? Since this is my second round of accutane she wanted to put me on the highest dose to reduce the likelihood that I will relapse again. I have to say I am pretty nervous about the side effects being that I'm starting at such a high dose, mainly the dreaded IB. I'm
Hello Everyone, I am so excited to say that I am going to be starting Accutane (Isotretonoin), for the second time, in a month! So a little background about myself and my acne history. I have been struggling with acne since I was about 13, I am now 23, so it has been a longggg 10 year struggle. I would say that I had mild acne in the beginning and when I hit high school it developed into persistent moderate/mildly severe. I would break out all over my cheeks, around my mouth and on my for
