Two years off!



Figured I'd update this gallery to reitterate the fact that Accutane will make it go away for good (well it did for me) because this is...almost two years off Accutane. I get the occasional pimple (generally a few days after shaving (I don't have to shave every day...haha) I guess because the follicles are open?) but I also find that using a topical cream like Clearasil right after shaving tends to be most effective, maybe because the open follicles allow it to penetrate deeper.

I feel much more confident now with clear skin, paired with a good outfit and my hair that I love (sure, maybe a bit self-centered, but I took Accutane for a reason). I am definitely more outgoing and have more friends as a result.

Thanks for posting about your journey and your photos. You look great and enjoy your appearance as much as you want! You are an inspiration to others.

:D :D Do you feel that you got more understanding of others dealing with upsetting things because of what you've been through? I think that's a 'side-effect' of having major skin problems that can be put to good use in life and even career, friendships, etc.
