3 Weeks Before Day 1




I am scheduled to begin my first month of accutane on May 7th. I am 21 years old and graduating with my Bachelors of Science in Communication Sciences and Disorders on May 1st. Never would I have thought that I would still be having cystic acne at almost 22 years old.

I decided to make the plunge after my sister, 23 years old, finished accutane and now has perfect skin. I am extremely nervous about the “initial breakout” and dryness after seeing how horrible my sister had it during her first few months of treatment. I will need lots of support! Some success stories are more than welcome!

Please let me know of any products that worked for you!

I will try and post pictures every day starting May th! This is a photo of my skin now without makeup….pretty rough.

****EDIT**** I originally had photos on each blog, however I put my username into google images and all my pimple pictures popped up. Therefore, I have deleated all my pictures. I will keep this "before" photo and have kept the photo from today (9/8/14) under blog "Month 4". My skin got A LOT worse than what it is in this photo, but stared to get better after the first month****

Hey! You are doing the right thing! We all need support while on this Accutane journey. I'm only on day 11, and my skin has broken out pretty bad. I have three friends, that I currently work with, who have all taken Accutane and all have VERY nice skin now. So, I do believe that Accutane works. However, for me it is getting worse before it gets better. Everyone is different though. Best of luck to you! Feel free to message me if you need to. Even just to vent! It helps! lol
