Introduction-- starting accutane!

November121

182 views

Hi! I am a fifteen year old female who has been dealing with acne since I was nine years old. I have pretty oily skin, red marks on my cheeks, blackheads on my nose, a couple of pimples on my forehead, a couple of pimples on my chin, lots of pimples on my cheeks and jawline, and a couple of under the skin cysts on my left jawline. My right cheek is definitely worse than my left cheek, but they are both pretty bad. I have tried almost every over the counter product, and other prescription pills and creams. My derm put me on 40 mg 3X a week. Based on what i've been reading here, it seems like a pretty low dosage. I took my first pill last night and of course I haven't seen any side affects yet! Here is my regimen:

Morning:

Wash with Aveeno Clear Complexion

Moisturize with cetaphil cream

Moisturize with Aveeno tinted moisturizer

Neutrogena clear complexion makeup

Neutrogena clear complexion mineral powder

Night:

Wash with Aveeno Clear Complexion

Moisturize with cetaphil cream

I use Vaseline on my lips & tresemè shampoo and conditioner

I am 5'7 and 120 lbs

Here we go!!:cool:
