Starting The Taaaane

Thanks :)

i stopped the clinique products I was using and the daily red marks every am stopped!

coincidence..dont think so

maybe im not at the point yet i can use anything w/ out worrying the products could be causing issues

Picked up a new moisturizer..Perricone

It has Vit C

Is that Ok on tane

I didnt consider that an active

I only thought of actives as retin-a, bp, sal acid, aha, etc

Im using so little...fear ill break out but last night i had that subtle burning or sensitivity

dont know if its the cream or tane or both

i think my skin needs serious hydration just not sure what to do

My rash/ etc is spreading up beyond my elbow now

lovely..at least it winter..LOL

i may drop down to even 40mg for a mnth or so and let this harsh winter pass

In the NE it has been crazy nippy and more snow reported today

*jumps for joy*

Hope everyone is having a great weekend!

hello guys!

Its week 12! (well, day 86, two days into 13) But i have uploaded some new pics 4 u guys! Some Little things decided to pop in my precious forehead, but ya know, got rid of tthem lol. So my chin has been irritating, but ive left it alone see how that goes. My marks are the big bummer here. Purple spots everywhere!! Ugh. Oh well, rather have those than zits.

Hasnt anyone thought of uploading their own pics? Well, i get it,not everyone is comfortable with posting theur their pics of their acne on the internet haha. Oh well, you guys have a nice day.

HAPPPPY Birthday!!

I have to say uare very brave posting your pics!!

Im much older than you and not totlly comfy

silly me though i would take weekly pics to document my progress..but its been a slower than expcted road

so, for me, the pics are hard to look at

I must say my forehead cleared completely and i look pretty nice head on

Just dont try to talk to me on my left or right side...well still have some healing to deal with

My face is tight and still feeling that slight uncomfy ro very slight burning sensation

do u think this is more tane related or products related?

Not much to report here either. Past my three months mark this weekend, every shower takes ages with all the body lotion and oil, having my own budget for lip balm, getting tired of the red marks, and I'm starting to get a see-through colour on my body - love it :)
Happy monday everyone! This week will be a much better skin-week than the last one

thanks. Derm said to leave it (again she is really anti moisterizure or putting anything on my face while on accutane, the most i have gotten her to say is "if ireally really bothers you put a tiny tiny bit of light moisterizure on" and I did buuut low and behold my skin did not react well (as she predicted" so I've been leaving it.

yaaaaaay

To a good skin week for the rest of you!

I remember your derm said no light moisturizer..do u use anything on your face ro just letting it peel

My derm gave me no direction I would rather be tight than broken out so I am using a tiny tiny pea size of moisturizer

some people claim dryness and dehydration causes more breakouts

feel like u cant win!

Hang in there

happy skin week to all!

Same here..new one on my chin...ugh..god forbid I would have a clear section of my face

some other spots i think but cant really tell what is coming going, old, new..

Im not that dry either Mary..little tight but not peeling or flaking etc

I have to admit today I have been feeling like maybe i should have pushed more for spiro....tried bcp first

what if tane doesn't work for me and after this dumb treatment im left with all these battle scars and continue to breakout

I feel like we have tried to be patient (with derp winning the patience of the year award, with no complaints honor)

I keep looking forward to every mnth being THE mnth I dont wake up with new breakouts almost daily

feeling sad today

Im throwing a pity party for us...grab a drink at the door

Haha Kim, you make me laugh about it all, thank you!

I thought I'd be counting the days before going off looking forward to be finished with all the side effects, but I'm actually AFRAID to go off, and I'm counting the days dreading the end!

Okay, first of all I need to tell you guys that I am NOT crazy. Okay, now that that's done:

I woke up today and that brown patch that was really brown, dark and covering almost my entire cheek is GONE. I almost had a heart-attack when I looked in the mirror this morning...I don't know what this medication does to us but it is freaky!.

For those of you keeping up with my posts this patch has been dating back maybe 2-3 weeks and been getting progressively worse..yesterday was the worst day and I even made a new post on this forum to see if anybody else had it happen...I asked my derm about it last time I was there and she said it was severe dryness,..It got way worse since that visit.

IT IS GONE.

I am almost as freaked out as I am happy....

all the best guys!

freaked out,

derp

Its time for my daily bitch fest...

Lets all put or hands together for the

'FU tane' song....

Can u slap me in the face at the end of all this when I shout from the rooftops that my

skin is perfect and tane was the best decision I ever made

My face is so DRY/tight...not flaky

Im red and bumpy and dehydrated

Im scared im not using enough moisturizer but i cant imagine anything moisturizing enough at this point

Derp..your derm said NO to little moisture right?

just afraid im doing some damage to my skin because it is THAT dry

Ok guys, just passed week 13, i started using my 2.5% benzoyl peroxide ointment to like flake the areas with marks in order for them to fade a little. Lol dont know how this is going to work out

Hey

Im no expert but from what I understand (hopefully someone else can chime in) but BP isnt used to fade red mark..it actually might make them worse because it could dry the area out

I spot with BP on active pimples etc

especially on darker skin it can make the area look worse

I think the dumb red marks stink..best thing is to moisturize and/or to use something that will gently exfoliate

BUT not sure what the skin can tolerate at this point on tane (for ex. glycolic acid etc)
