Hi everyone!

Hi guys. I'm completely new to the blogging thing but I thought I'd try it out! :) Basically I've had acne for a while, a few years now, and I've tried loads of different medication until eventually, my doctor decides to put me on roaccutane. I went to see a skin specialist and he literally talked at me for a solid half an hour about side effects etc... which, I'll be honest, scared me. But still ended up on it anyway. So yeah... I really should have started this blog on the first day but i haven't had a chance until now. I've taken my 4th tablet just a few minutes ago. My skin hasn't really changed yet (not that I'm expecting anything... I know it takes a while) and the only side effects I've had was a massive headache yesterday and I feel a bit achy... oh and dry lips!! The skin specialist says I have to eat well and bar the coffee cake I had this afternoon, i think it's going well.. I generally eat quite well but how much effect does it have on your blood tests and things? I'm hoping to try and write every day but we'll see how it goes as I'm bang in the middle of exams right now! :D Oh.. I also wanted to know... does anyone use Clearasil to cleanse their face? or is that too harsh on your skin? Any other suggestions?

You want to use the mildest cleanser possible....I recommend citaphil cleanser and moisterizer. Dove soap also works great...KC31
