Isn't it wonderful that I last made a post on here five years ago and still haven't solved my acne problems -___-

So, brief overview so as not to bore you (I'm sure no ones reading this anyway), I am 20 years old. In college. Had acne since I was 13. I've tried benzoyl peroxide, (works awesome as a spot treatment, not for prevention), salicylic acid, epiduo (great spot treatment too), some antibiotics that made me feel like vomiting 24/7, and I've finally made the decision to try accutane.

I could go on for days about how acne makes me feel... having to wear makeup every day.. literally not leaving my room/house without makeup... constantly checking mirrors... reapplying makeup... not being able to sleepover anyones house... etc, etc. ITS SH*TTY.

After a few weeks of miscommunication about ipledge requirements, pregnancy tests, and blood tests, I finally picked up my first month's dose of generic accutane. I'm starting on 30mg once a day. I'm honestly just keeping this blog so that I don't lose my mind and pretend I have someone to talk to about my issues. I hope my first breakout isn't too bad, especially bc I'm usually public speaking at school when I don't look like a monster. But with my luck... we'll see.

Thanks for being here on my journey, hope its a good one!

Good luck! I want to wish you the greatest on your journey. I am currently trying out a more natural approach, yet still rely heavily on benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid to keep my skin under control. Regardless, I hope that everything improves for the better. :)
