Turned Dirty 30 and all hell broke loose!

Here goes...I work for the beauty industry, no pressure right :wub: I've always had the occassional breakouts. Was able to keep it under control most of the time. Until the last year or so. I found my dad, my mom has been diagnosed w/ advanced Breat Cancer, and my hormones have went crazy. Maybe it's stress. Not sure. Started off getting cyst on my face that would stay forever. I have one now that has been there for 3months! Then back started to breakout even worse. Started getting acne all over my chest. I feel embarassed and avoid most social settings when possible. Clients are constantly asking me why my skin is so bad. My skin is so oily and inflamed. I have posted a few pics but these are considered my good pics of the acne. The rest are on my phone and I have to figure out how to download to computer. Posted pictures also from last year at this time before all hell broke loose. I'm sad. I have done antibiotics, creams, and ointments but nothing has helped. My dermatologist said it was time to give accutane a try because I'm starting to get alot of scarring. So here goes nothing. I'm really scared but I really want my self- esteem back. People who have clear skin just don't understand. I plan on still working out the whole time if anyone has any suggestions to what supplements to take. Good luck to everyone. Will update you on how my first day went tomorrow. Wish me luck :pray:

Sorry about your mom's breast cancer...I can't imagine what you must be going through :( I've tried everything to get clear skin as well (like most people on here) and after the severe allergic reaction ( :) ) that I had to the antibiotics my derm suggested Accutane and I will be starting soon. Good luck with everything :-

Thanks alot. Yes, I'm on birth control. I believe it's the generic for Yaz. The scarring stinks. I never think my skin is that bad till I see pictures. My 4yr old took some pics today for my starting day, lol. I will try to post them tomorrow. Good luck to you. I'm here if you need support :-
