Well I went to the dermatologist today and he told me no more accutane! I am excited, but a little nervous that he isn't having me do a full six months (I just finished month 5). Below is my skin today (its honestly like a babys bottom!) and it has been completley acne free for a little over a month. My lips are still chapped and the doctor said it might take a month for them to completly heal. We also discussed ways to prevent breakouts from happening again. He told me to avoid mosturizer and spf if possible, as these both cause pores to clog. He said you absolutly want to protect your self from the sun, so if possible wear a hat that covers your entire face, but avoid the spf on your face. Couldn't be happier! This is absolutly worth it. Just hoping it stays like this. If I start breaking out again I will be back, but as for now.. good luck! You will make it through and be so happy you decided to go on the "journey."

I'm intrigued. Avoid moisturizer? I tried that and my skin was always red and flaky. But then again, when I did moisturize with oil-free, spf and all that I ended up with A pimple. Just one, but it is still horrid. I loaded up on the antibiotics to kill it quickly. I never pop anymore. It's already scabbing over and flattening out with the influx of antibiotics. So glad to hear that you are clear and smooth!! Yeah!!:lol:
