Oh and by the way, the pores on my nose are starting to surface. Is that too early for it to happen? when I rub I can feel the roughness, this kinda happened while I was on tazorac but they never fully came out

Sheesh I'd kill for your skin right about now, day 21 & still going through the tail end of the IB :(

;-/ I'm trying not to jinx myself. I see that youre on a 3 month course. How severe is your acne? I'm wondering how long I will be on this stuff.

Haha sorry for the misleading signature, I think I'm going up to 80 Mg from months 4-6. I have cystic acne and this medication isn't very good considering I work at the waterslides in the summer :(. Sun exposure galore!

Wow! Every time I look at your pictures, I get so jealous! If you go to my log you can see how hideous my skin looks. I dream of my skin looking like yours. I wish you the best.

hmm, i thought that cleansers should not be used on skin while on accutane?

just moisturizer?

Def not ;-) That one is really moisturizing. It's simple. Very simple for sensitive skin. I think anything harsh should not be used on the skin, anything with BP or salicylic acid etc.

That's bc lips doesn't even really have acne. My guess is she just has BDD and it makes her feel better about herself to compare her "acne" to ours and makes her feel "apart" of a community that she may not be able to socially off of the web.

Other thing I noticed was how dramatically different her first pics were to second... retouched perhaps?

EDIT **** Sorry lips, I can't help but feel this way when u obviously don't get it.

Oh sorry mini me! I swear I sent one from my phone today in the morning! It's really hard to type on my droid and sometimes it never actually works like when I try to post pictures. Instead of assuming, you could of asked.

And to answer your question, No I had clogged pores pre tane. I haven't got anymore than usual. They just look like black heads.

yes, lips has GREAT skin. Id wager its better than 90 % of people i see.

Her acne is quite neglibile, but it bothers her, and hence why the accutane.

GL to her.

What is that supposed to mean, Crystal? Who are you to judge whether someone else's acne is severe or not? Everyone has their own idea of what severe is and what severe isn't. And why would she retouch her pictures if this is an Accutane log? There is a multitude of different factors that could make the acne look less severe. Different lighting, different angle, better or worse quality camera, etc. How is that even fair? This is supposed to be a support forum. If you can't offer words of support or advice, then there's no reason for you to post here. And don't say 'Sorry' when you don't mean it. How rude.

Wow :rolleyes: Um, so "crystal" is it? Firstly, Your above statement is quite the contradiction. You're implying that my skin isn't that "bad" as other people on this site but yet you make an assumption that my photos are retouched? My sister does retouching for a living and it's for celebrities who want to hide their flaws to meet some kinda of expectation that society has for them. My personal opinion, I THINK IT SHOULD BE ILLEGAL. However, I will admit you have a very good eye which only means that you've been staring at my photos for longer than the average person, weird. The first photo was taken after a night of partying with my friends so yes I had left over foundation on. Let me state again that was pre-tane. The second photo was two weeks into my accutane course. I told everybody on this log that my skin reacts very quickly to anything I put into it. I'm sorry if You can not join in my happiness (I thought that was what the org was for). And dude really? How old are you again?

Secondly, the org is for anybody with skin problems. I didn't know there were certain qualifications that must be met in order to post for accutane progresses or any log for that matter. My problem ISNT JUST ACNE. I HAVE A PROBLEM WITH CELL TURN OVER JUST LIKE TIME. That is part of the reason I went on accutane. I've suffered with acne since I was 12 I think I have every right to be concerned with how my skin is doing in my 20s. The accutane has helped whatever kinda of dermatitis I've had since going on ret-a in the past two weeks. That's another reason why my skin probably looks "different"

Thirdly, I joined this org 2 years ago because yeah I'll admit I needed support, isn't that the function of this site? To make us feel better no matter what the case is. Do you see me obsessively posting? Do you NOT see me posting to help other people (I do it whenever I have the knowledge that someone is seeking) Do you not see me commenting on your log and everybody else's trying to reach out. How dare you act superior not to mention your complete ignorance.

Fourthly, I did this log for people in the future and for myself. YOU GUYS WANTED UPDATED PICTURES.... so I gave them to you.

Fifthly, I'm sorry your course is not going as planned. I really am. If I could I would create an anti acne pill that would work instantly. But your hatred, doubt, sadness whatever it may be, you should seriously consider another outlet besides posting ridiculously mean comments on another girls log. Maybe that's why it isn't working.... what you put out into the world it will always return that energy back to you. So stop while you're ahead. Anger and Fear get you nowhere.

I can't believe this, I mean really? Even on the org there are people like this. Wait? I shouldn't be surprised.

Oh and do me a favor crystal, stay off the log obviously you don't like reading and I can't say I don't mind either.

It's no problem. ^_^ You know what's interesting, Cassandra, is that I looked at Crystal's Accutane log. You made several comments that offered nothing but support and kindness, and this is what you get in return? :rolleyes:

It's not good. I used my bp wash the second day of being on tane and I had raw skin for a day or two.

Day 15

*NOTE TO READERS, STOP IF YOU'RE A HATER*

O my goodness! Half way through month 1 mark! This is so exciting. I can't believe it's only been 15 days *smiling*

Emotionally I've been up and down, I'm pmsing so I generally feel like poop. I'm pretty confident in this accutane thing. I will willing admit I was quite doubtful in the beginning. Side effects, IB (which I may still or may not get, only time will tell). But overall I've been pretty happy and confident. I feel like my old self again. Just carefree.

Skin wise, still exfoliating with that q tip, amazing. I tried putting foundation on last night man what a disaster, I'm still flakey with it on, I don't know why make up makes it worse but it just exaggerates the flakes. I mean without make up on you just cant tell they are there. Maybe I'm using the wrong kind of make up? I don't know. Anyways my skin is still really good. I haven't broken out from the other day when I worked out with vaseline, SO thats a good thing. It's more encouraging to continue. I haven't got any new zits, its still all the same. The redness overall in my face just keeps reducing. I have like normal people skin, I don't mind having rosy cheeks ;-)

Oh! In the past two days I've had the worst nightmares I've ever experienced, I don't know if that's from the tane or not. But they were so real that I woke up crying. It was horrible.

Still staying hopeful and positive.

Peace, Love & Happiness.

most make-up sticks to dead skin cells in flakes, so if you have this issue it will really bring it out. I find just going lighter with the make-up, in an area where I know my skin is dry and peeling, really seems to help.
