    Thought I would update everyone on the past 4 days since I wont be able to tomorrow because it's my 21st birthday!!! (and yes I will be drinking while on Accutane tomorrow. My mom is a doctor and she said that since I am on a low dose drinking wouldn't damage my liver)
    The day after I updated everyone I formed another cystic pimple on my left jaw line :( ... it's really weird because when I had my first initial breakout all the cystic pimples that I had on the right side of my face decided to switch to the same exact spots on the left side of my face? As I am writing this I have Three Cystic pimples on the left side of my face that are slowly going down. Over the weekend I went Skiing with some friends and I skipped taking my pill for a day so that might be why I formed another pimple?
    Anyway just thought I would let everyone Know I am having another initial breakout (right before my birthday) but I am honestly not bothered by it at all because I have seen for the past two weeks how amazing Accutane is and how quickly it clears up my skin after I have a breakout.
    Side comment: Anyone that has moderate acne and never gets cystic acne, you will most likely end up getting cystic breakouts while on this, however they are not all that bad because they clear up so fast and don't leave me any marks. My sister made a comment to me the other day about how she has never seen me with such big painful looking pimples, I told her it was honestly not a big deal because I have seen first hand how amazing my skin looks while it is not purging. She has acne opposite to mine, which is moderate to severe cystic acne. She wants to go on Accutane but is discouraged by the fact that I am now getting a few Cystic Pimples. Her thought is that if I am getting them hers will be 20x worse, everyone goes through something different while on accutane, but what keeps me going is the thought of having clear skin one day.

    Car Insurance in Las Vegas Nevada is one of those things you know you need but probably dislike buying. After all, you pay for it, all the while hoping you never need to use it. Understandably, there are probably many other ways you’d prefer to spend your money.

    Fortunately, there are also plenty of ways to save on car insurance through  Las Vegas Car Insurance Quotes . From using a comparison shopping site and maintaining a clean driving record, to raising your deductible and reevaluating your coverage needs, there are multiple strategies for lowering your premium.

    Here are tips to get the best car insurance:

    1. Shop/Search Around

    As with any purchase, it’s a good idea to shop around for the best coverage and price. You probably comparison shop when it comes to buying clothes, furniture or other items — why not do the same for your car insurance?

    There are many comparison sites that can help, and if the website is also an insurance broker, then it can set you up with the best car insurance. Many drivers wonder how they can calculate insurance costs and such sites make it easy to compare insurers by offering you a way to get quick quotes on coverage from the top car insurance companies in your country.

    2. Discounts

    Always check for ways to save on your car insurance policy, and you will never know unless you ask! There are a variety of ways to lower your premiums. For example, many insurance companies offer price breaks if you bundle your car insurance with other policies, such as business coverage or homeowner’s insurance.

    Additionally, some insurers discount policies when customers insure more than one vehicle, or when members of the same family take out policies with the same company. If you belong to a particular professional group, alumni organization or business association, you may also qualify for group discounts. You may also be eligible for discounts if you drive a vehicle that incorporates anti-theft technology or special safety features. You can also ask for a discount if you agree to pay your policy in full rather than spread it out over payments.

    Most insurance companies offer a long list of discounts, so make sure to inquire if you think you might qualify for money off your policy. 

    3. Review
    It goes without saying that you should always comply with provincial requirements regarding minimum car insurance, but what about extra coverage and add-ons to your policy? Are you paying for insurance coverage you no longer need? Many people think of car insurance as a “set it and forget it” product, but it’s really not. As your lifestyle changes, your car insurance does, too. It’s also a good idea to revisit whether you need comprehensive car insurance coverage at all.

    Human microbiome is a big eco-system/community with trillions of living microorganisms that reside largely in your gut.

    Another microbiome as a host to millions of microorganisms/ bacteria is your skin. 

    And in every microbiome ( your gut or skin ) you have good and bad bacteria.

    But as within any ecosystem - balance is the key. 

    By certain things trying to destroy or introduce we can throw things out of balance.

    So when the bad bacteria begin to outnumber the good bacteria, your health is more likely to suffer. Simply because your gut bacteria has become unhealthy. 

    And from my own practice by helping hand full people with acne / and other similar "health enthusiasts" like me, have showed impressive results that damaged and unhealthy gut bacteria is one of the reasons behind your acne! 

    So, when it comes to microbiomes, the good bacteria are essential for maintaining healthy balance.

    How can you know if your gut bacteria is unhealthy? 

    1. Do you have acne?
    2. Do you have to use a toilet paper?

    So as a small resolution - Acne is just a symptom caused by much bigger problems!

    And unhealthy gut bacteria is just one of the big problems! 


    Be aware that yogurt, kefir, and probiotic powders will not solve your unhealthy gut bacterias problem! 

    For this reason, if you are interested to know the truth behind how to take care at least one of the main generators behind acne - send me a message, and lets have a free 15 minute chat!

    If you're male and have acne you may have overlooked a few reason your acne persists.

    Your acne will most likely never go away if you aren't targeting your Acne Signaling System - the central point of acne initiation, where it all begins

    I'm going to guess it's pretty damn frustrating to be a grown man with zits!? Not so hot right! This can definitely be a source of insecurity and depression. You're feeling unattractive and maybe aren't comfortable being as socially active as you want to be.

    Acne is 3x more likely to go untreated by the male population. A large percentage of men with acne may not consider taking the time for regular facial care as often as women will. You may not even know where to start with product right?... shopping for skincare is not necessarily your thing?

    Plus, as you have most likely already accurately imagined... there are currently a whopping 1,953 over-the-counter acne products on the market, not to mention topical ointments and medicated creams, and acne medications (Wow, you'd think the industry would have found a cure by now right!?)

    Obviously proper cleansing and moisturizing is important, it isn't nearly as important as effective as cleaning out your insides
    So here are some tips to optimum internal balance that can have great impact on your acne

    REDUCE INFLAMMATION: It's critical to reduce internal inflammation. Inflammation is the root of all disease, including acne. 
    *Diet Related Inflammation
    Inflammation almost always begins in your gut, causing hormonal imbalances and forcing your immune system to go into overdrive. When you eat certain foods you reduce the good bacteria that live inside your gastrointestinal (GI) tract that aids in repairing your gut lining

    These good bacteria are essential in supporting the immune system, digestion, decreasing inflammation, AND yes...the production of your man hormones. A poor diet kills your healthy gut flora and is replaced with bad bacteria causing inflammation which directly affects your skin.

    Scientific research... (forgive me, I know those two words run rampant in all acne information) has long proven there is a direct connection between intestinal bacteria and chronic acne and the gut bacterial imbalance is 10 times more prevalent in acne patients than healthy people

    1.Reduce Stress - When you're stressed your adrenal glands produce the stress hormone Cortisol(also known as the "death" hormone) You also secrete more testosterone. If you have have chronic stress your adrenal glands will eventually become exhausted and as a result too much testosterone will lead to more oil production in your pores
    2.Reduce Caffeine Intake - High caffeine consumption may affect adrenal glands which produce hormones and cortisol levels
    3.Reduce Simple/Refined Carbohydrates - There are 2 types of refined Carbs:
    - Refined/Processed Sugars - white sugar, all processed foods that contain white sugar
    - Refined/Processed Grains - Basically any grain derived food that doesn't say "Whole Grain" on the package

    Refined carbs have been stripped of almost all fiber, vitamin, minerals, and have all the nutritious parts removed. They are considered "empty" calories
    They are digested quickly and have a high glycemic index which leads to rapid spikes in blood sugar and insulin levels after meals. A diet with a high in glycemic index is positively linked to acne
    4.Reduce Gluten - IF (and only "if") you suspect or know you have gluten sensitivity, eating gluten will cause poor digestion, stomach issues, and bad gut bacteria growth, leading to inflammation which will aggravate acne
    5.Reduce Hydrogenated oil - increases bad cholesterol (LDL) and decreases good cholesterol(HDL). They block production of chemical that combat inflammation and benefit the hormonal and nervous system
    6.Reduce Trans fats (basically all junk food and fast food/everything yummy) - Trans fats inhibit an enzyme necessary for the regulation of blood flow and also increase inflammation and contribute to insulin resistance. 
    7.Reduce Sugar (especially white refined) - Foods high in sugar and saturated fats like white bread, candy, fried food, soda will spike your body's insulin levels which triggers inflammation and binds to collagen, degrading your skin cells. Too much insulin in the bloodstream leads to growth of pore-clogging cells and excess production of oil and bacteria in your follicles 
    8.Reduce Dairy Products - Our bodies contain IGF-1 is the hormone in our bodies that promotes increased cell growth. Cows also contain IGF-1...So adding foods with a high insulin index around puberty is like adding octane fuel to and already full tank of raging hormones. Dairy is already being packed full of it's own growth and sex hormones and expecting your body to manage that is impossible. Now back to cell growth. Remember IGF-1 being the hormone in our body responsible for increased cell growth. This increase starts happening inside our pores, increasing sebum production, and bacteria which leads to clogged pores, and acne. I'm gonna guess you don't want those female Bovine post-natal sex hormones circulating in your blood anyway!?

    Good luck Guys! Please message me anytime with any questions about this post, diet, acne product recommendations, or any acne related info. I'm always happy to help 
    Also, give me suggestions for future posts on relevant acne topics you're curious about

    • A lot of left over red/brown spots.
    • Got 2 new pitted scars from breakouts.. 
    •  I notice a lot of facial hairs grown up after I started Accutane (I am pretty sure I never had this much before)

    Accutane is a vitamin A derivative.

    You do not need to buy this expensive drug nor risk going through the possible harmful side effects.

    Because Accutane and its generic brands (isotretinoin) are a vitamin A derivative you can get the same benefits from mashing carrots in a blender and rubbing the carrot slush on your face as a cream. Trust me the vitamin A in the carrot is enough to make your skin stop producing so much oil.

    When exposed to air, vitamin A will oxidize to some extent to form retinoic acid which is isotretinoin.

    Want to see the chemistry.

    The beta carotene that is in the carrot is cleaved at the C15 to C15’ double bond yielding two molecules of retinol (i.e. Vitamin A).


    The Vitamin A undergoes oxidation at its terminal alcohol (OH) group yielding 2 molecules of 11-cis retinal as shown below.


    The 2 molecules of 11-cis retinal have alternative fates they may either became all trans-retinal or undergo oxidation with the oxygen in the air to become retinoic acid which is another name for isotretinoin. Hence you have just put acne cream on your face.

          To me, acne, acne scars, oily skin, large pores, and textured skin makes a woman look MORE BEAUTIFUL and SEXIER. Somewhere from 2nd to 5th grade I started to find acne as something beautiful. Before then, I had crushes on girls, some who just happen to have acne.  Then somewhere along the way I started seeing acne as something beautiful. If there was a woman with cystic acne and acne scars all over her face, upper neck, upper chest, shoulders, upper arms, and back,  I would be EXTREMELY EXTREMELY EXTREMELY EXTREMELY EXTREMELY PHYSICALLY ATTRACTIVE TO HER.

    so i’ve been breaking out recently i don’t know if it’s the purge stage or stress or what i’m eating... i have three big pimples on my forehead (which i never break out at) and just know i saw a LARGE bumpy red patch next to my nose on my left cheek which i’m scared of it becoming a big pimple because it’s right in front of the face where people see you :( i’m trying to be so positive but everyone around me seems to not stop pointing out my acne like do they think i’m blind and can not see it for myself? i am getting agitated. i suffer with depression already and all of this is just making it worse, it’s not really accutane’s fault though, it’s just my own personal life. anyways, i have a question for anyone that reads this, what should i be eating? and what gould i not be? i know dairy is out but what else? if you wanna recommend anything to do please help me, it is greatly appreciated!

    Hi everyone,

    Here’s some background information about me: I have struggled with mild to moderate persistent acne since I was 22 (I’m now 29). It was always manageable until about 1.5 years ago when my skin went from being a little oily to VERY oily which to my dismay = way more breakouts. I finally got an appointment with the dermatologist (it took forever - I’m from Canada) and decided that Epirus was the way to go.

    Im about to begin my 3rd week and I am definitely experiencing an initial breakout! My skin looks worse than before I started - it actually looks worse than I have ever seen it. I’m breaking out on my forehead and my jawline/chin and have a lot of closed comedones on my cheek which were there before starting my treatment. 

    I hope my IB starts to calm down soon, it’s really killing my confidence!

    -blackheads sticking out, rough skin on the nose 
    -skin is very sensitive and burns sometimes
    -initial breakout ( about 15 new pimples)

    Mua nhà là ước mơ của nhiều bạn trẻ, ở nước ngoài họ thường xuyên vay vốn ngân hàng với Hỗ trợ vay tiền ngân hàng đơn giản theo hình thức tín chấp để sở hữu cho mình những ngôi nhà nhưng ở Việt Nam điều này vẫn còn chưa phổ biến.

I wake up with around 2 cysts every day and they are leaving behind brutal scarring that can't be covered with makeup. I have also noticed smaller closed comedones popping up everywhere. It doesn't help that I am so stressed about this. I am really unsure of what to do...

    I am scared that my hormones have been permanently fucked from stopping mid pack and taking a break. I see my dermatologist in 6 weeks...which is a lot of time for things to either improve or worsen. I feel like it might head for the latter though. 

    I have no self confidence. Anyone gone through something similar?

  15. 1 entry

    Starting this a bit late, but decided to record my progress. Currently ten days into treatment on 40mg of Amnesteem twice a day. 

    During the first week I noticed a total change in how my acne behaved, while I still had breakouts (all whiteheads and one cystic on my right cheek) the pimples seemed to cluster together with smaller heads than usual, and they would heal and be gone by the next day. 

    Up until the 8th day, I didn't experience any dryness other than slightly dry lips, but, oh boy did it hit like a truck. Woke up with a killer back ache (which may, or may not actually be from the tane seeing as it was gone the next day) and really dry skin and lips despite liberal moisturizing and aquaphore. Skin felt tight and hot, pretty uncomefortablefortable, but I guess its better than being extremely oily like usual.  

    Tenth day, skin is even more dry, actually flaking around the corners of my nose and my chin area, lips might as well be a desert. And I'm noticeably redder in the cheeks area. So far feeling pretty confident in the decision to start taking it. Any tips on how to really fight redness and dryness despite good moisturizing?

    It took 7 months to get where i am now. The exciting part is that this is my "that time of the month" skin. Normally i would be so broken out right now. THATS how excited i am to finally see it fully working. I cant believe its been 7 months of ups and downs but here we are today so stick with it!

  17. 1 entry

    ight so i doubt anyone is gonna read this but imma post it anyways. I have always had mild to moderate. I honestly can't remember when i started to get acne, all I remember was my older sister who also has acne telling me to start washing my face because im gonna get it soon lol. . So then when it started to get worse I would use my older sisters old prescription creams and I don't remember what they were. My acne started to get worse, and at some point I went to the dermatologist and got doxycycline I think, probably like 2 years ago. That cleared my skin well, I think i was on it for like 3 months or so. Then when I got off that I started to use the regimen on here. Followed it strictly and had clear skin with about 2 to 3 white heads a week and sometimes deep ones that don't come to the surface. My acne is mostly around mouth and sometimes nose and between eye brows. This regimen worked well for my pimples but not for my overall skin. I gained super sensitive skin, but i thought it was a worth it trade, red skin and no acne rather than acne and normal color. Also, I surf every day that I can, so its getting tough to use bp as my skin is becoming more and more sensitive, basically I always look sunburnt and people always comment on it. One day I was looking at the posts on here and I came across the caveman regimen. I thought this would be super sick because I hated how much time the regime takes to apply and I felt weird doing it sometimes because no other guy seemed to have to put in so much work and worry. So I tried it and the first 2 weeks were super good. I basically did the surf version of this in that the only time my face came in contact with anything was salt water for about 2 hours. When I would first jump into the water I could feel all the oil come off my skin and it felt acidic, which I thought meant it was working. I only would have like 1 white head and I could see normal skin color coming back into my face and i was super excited and honestly started to have a different outlook on how my life would be without having to worry about a regimen. (I went throught a whole thought process for 2 weeks deciding if I was going to do it or not and one reason i thought it would work was because i've never had acne on my back or chest or neck so I thought maybe it was caused When the purge stage came, I couldn't bare it. It was the worst It had ever been in my life and I was breaking out in places that I never had acne before. Felt pretty depressed and didn't want to hang out with anybody. Then I went back onto the acne.org regimen except I was dumb and went straight for the full bp instead of easing into it cuz I thought my skin would still be used to it. So I basically came close to chemical burns and my face was straight red all over. 3 Months later of the regimen and depression, My skin came close to  back to how it was before the breakout. Except now I had acne that I had to control next to my nose and on my temple  and some on forehead.  So over It went from a 3 to a 5 on my personal scale(the breakout was a 9) So after a while of the full regimen I decided that there were other things that could help with acne and redness, so I stopped dairy (my favorite food is cereal and ice cream), starting drinking green tea, take zinc supplements, drink table spoon of acv, ate healthier (less sugar no more drinks besides water, etc). I also started to only do the regime once a day, which was working at home but then went to college were it is humid and isn't working as well. That brings us to where I am now, mild to moderate acne that acts differently than any acne i've had so far. I have small bumps and white heads on the area next to my nose mostly on left side, around mouth, in between eyebrows, and little bit on temples. I am writing here because I can tell that It is getting worse as time moves on, maybe because humidity? It seems that using the regimen once a day isn't  even reducing the redness that much. So I wanted to write on here and see if any of you guys have had similar stories and maybe could think of a regimen that is similar to bp but not so harmful and can balance with surfing and sunburnt life style.

    I’m going to do some monthly posts instead because weekly posts are becoming more and more monotonous and I don’t have time to post weekly. The past month was kinda rough, with lots of rounds of breaking out, calming down, and then breaking out again. The closed comedones are still being stubborn, though they have noticeably decreased. The few that come to heads are somewhat painful and contain a yellowy-white hard grain, like ¼ of a uncooked grain of rice. Switching into college was complicated for my dermatillomania and I’m still trying to get back on track with that, since the second I walk out of my room I’m looking into a huge vanity mirror. And I’m stressed. It’s great haha. I’m breaking out along the sides of my chin and a little on the middle of my cheeks, and the spots are usually the deeper (but not cystic or papule-like) breakouts that are probably from old closed comedones.

    Products used:

    -Aveeno Sheer Daily Moisturizer: morning and night

    -Neutrogeena Oil-Free Moisture with Sunscreen (SPF 15): mornings when I plan to go outside.

    -Burt’s Bees chapstick: use in morning and throughout the day

    -Aquaphor tube: apply at night before bed

    -Dove micellar water body wash

    -Dr. Bronner’s Peppermint Castile Soap: Distilled 1:2 of soap to water in a separate glass bottle. Used in morning and in evening.

    -Heliocare oral supplement: on days where I plan to go outside a lot (still wear sunscreen, though!)

    -Kirkman’s Multivitamin without vitamin A or D

    -NAC supplement: for OCD, anxiety, depression (many sites suggest also taking a vitamin C supplement with NAC; I take the daily multivitamin below and a little bit of an “Immune+” Emergen-C packet [the type w/vitamin D, since my multivitamin doesn’t include it] every other day)


    -Dry face: Not considerably; getting some dry patches on arms

    -Dry lips: Yes, a little worse than in the past but not tragic

    -Dry nose/eyes: Not really, maybe a little with my eyes.

    -Depression: Same as usual

    -Thirsty: I definitely have to drink more water, especially when I wake up in the morning, but it’s a good habit to get into :)

    -Hair loss: Much less than past few months

    So I've been off Accutane for 2 months now and it's been interesting to see how some things have changed. The first thing I noticed was about 3 weeks after stopping Accutane my hair started getting oiler and oiler. I now can barely go without washing it every other day whereas on Accutane it was over 3 days. I was hoping it wouldn't go back to this but at least it's not as bad as before Accutane....yet. About a month after stopping Accutane, my face got oiler (though that could have been the extreme summer heat also). Now there are days where i don't even moisturize and I've had to change my products again. I have also gotten a couple small pimples since stopping but nothing to really worry about at all. The best part is that I still have not gotten any cysts and that is really all that matters to me. I know it's still early but i'm hopeful that 6 month or a year from now I will still be cyst free. When I went off of Sipro, I began getting cysts worse than ever about 4 or 5 months after stopping so we shall see.

    Hi everyone, I am just finishing up my first week of Accutane and I am noticing many improvements. I know many people say you cannot notice any changes until usually a month in but mine are substantial. As you can notice all of my acne has completely stopped forming and my old pimples/scars are now healing.

    Current Accutane Skin Care Routine
    I have been using argan oil and cer-ve as a moisturizer for my face, Aquaphor for my lips, and Cetaphil as my cleanser. So far I have noticed my skin is a little drier than normal, but with my intensive moisturizing routine, I have not noticed any peeling. I apply the argan oil first then add a layer of cer-ve on top to lock in the moisture morning and night. I wash my face once a day at night before I get in the shower. I apply Aquaphor at least once every hour to combat the imminent lip dryness. This has kept my skin moisturized and healing the scars very quickly. I also drink 4 bottles of water every day which helps keep your skin moisturized as well as combat some side effects such as headaches and muscle cramps.

    Side Effects
    The only side effect I have noticed is 2 days after I started taking the medicine I had pretty intense muscle cramps in the upper part of my leg. I had not had any physical activity the day before just a normal day at work, so I'm almost positive that was caused by the Accutane starting to affect my body. I also had a mild headache my 2nd and 3rd day but drinking a lot of water helped that subside. Since then my side effects have passed and I pray they stay away.

    I tried almost everything on my face to treat my moderate acne but nothing cleared my acne.. last week i had an appointment with a dermatologist he prescribed me adapalene 0.1% and clindamycin gel 1%. Adaplene night time regimen and clindamycin day time..and advised me to stick with it for 8 weeks you ‘ll see results . I’m adding benzyol peroxide 5% as spot treatment. And quiting dairy products and fast food.  i hope this will workfor me . And i’m so worried about initial breakout (purging) . But This time i’m sticking to this regimen  . I’m stressed  af.   I ‘ll update you guys with pictures every week. Wish me good luck . Bye

    How longs does it take for Roaccutane to kick in?  I mean I'm mildly itchy which I attribute to 'something' happening but and I have one painful joint at the base of my thumb (RSI from googling 'roaccutane' on my phone and playing HQ trivia maybe?? haha) and I would say am mildly less spotty than usual for 'this time of the month' but other than that...nothing. Is that normal??

    Most people seem to report extremely dry skin and lips literally within a couple of days...I guess I'll see how things are at the end of week 1 - I know I need to be more patient.

    On the plus side, I don't really feel like my mood is being affected detrimentally in any way - if anything I feel more upbeat than usual and am feeling positive about the decision to take roaccutane.

    20 years old, 125 lb, 40mg for the first 2 months - 50mg from 3rd month onwards.

    So I started Accutane towards the end of May this year. I expected to see results straight away, despite constantly reading blog posts and watching videos that told me otherwise. I was nervous but after a 5 month wait on the NHS I just wanted to start the course. My lips did become chapped and dry after the first week or two so I ordered Aquaphor lip ointment from amazon and slathered it all over my lips. This made them feel better but I hate the feeling of dry lips, as its something I'v never had in my life. Anyway, after 2 or 3 weeks (exam season was over, thank god) my face started to become dry, with patches all over peeling off and looking very red and irritated. I got a few more spots but nothing i hadn't had before. Then a few weeks later, my hair started to become dry, which meant I only had to wash it every 4 days or so (even then I didn't really need to wash it, I just felt like I should).My scalp was so itchy it kept me awake at night. I’ve never seen anything like it- my scalp was literally flaking off and I had to keep slathering coconut oil on it every night to make it stop itching. This only lasted for about a week but it was awful. I found that Vosene shampoo or T-gel shampoo really helped. This stopped completely after my 2nd month and from then onwards my hair has not produced any oil or been itchy.

    I continued to break out randomly - nothing awful. The worst part was that I would pick at those spots (a habit I have never been able to break) and then awful red marks would replace the spot due to the skin being so thin. I got a lot of nosebleeds for the first 2 or 3 months- probably around 4 a week (not always big ones and I am prone to getting them anyway). To help this- I put Aquaphor up and around my nose). My nose also peels EVERYDAY. I feel like this might be my fault as I pick at it but its hard not to as even if I leave it, flakey bits start to form around my nostrils and the side of my nose. Imagine really thin layers of skin just peeling off your nose everyday. Its gross and leaves my nose constantly red. So that sucks.

    After month 3, I started to become really tired. My eyes were very dry (which made wearing contact lenses hard) and I felt exhausted all the time- I am unsure whether this is due to waking up earlier than usual due to working during the summer or whether it was the drug. Nevertheless, its a horrible feeling but I tried to push through it and go to the gym or not sleep during the day. My face became very dry and I ended up putting Aquaphor all over my face at night with moisturiser on top (Epaderm or Cerave), which seemed to help a lot. 

    I drank and went out quite a few times whilst on Accutane - apart from really bad hangovers, I didn't feel that different. It was the fear of what it was doing to my liver that stopped me drinking the most. My friend drank/did drugs whilst she was on it too, but its all down to the individual and what you think is best for you. (I'm not saying its ok to do this but i did and this is just my experience). 

    The sun was also a concern for me. I went on two holidays and endured a heat wave (which is rare in my country). I am usually pretty bad with sun cream and remembering to apply it and i have naturally olive skin- so i basically just remembered to apply factor 50 numerous times a day. I only burnt once or twice and it wasn't too bad, however, if you have naturally pale skin I would stay out of the sun more than I did and be more strict about sun cream, as your skin is very sensitive

    I am now on month 4 and my skin is pretty much completely clear- apart from I did get a big spot on my cheek last week but it went after 3 days. Its an amazing feeling and i must say I LOVE not having to wash my hair everyday. Always make sure to take the pills on a full stomach and to moisturise all the time and apply lip balm constantly. I notice that if iI drink a lot of water, my symptoms decrease (the dryness). So yeah - that's about it I think. I'm hoping my skin stays this good and I don't have to go back on Accutane because it is an annoying drug to be on. However, I'm annoyed at myself for waiting this long to mention it to my doctor as it has truly worked. My initial breakout was not bad at all and it started to clear from month 2 onwards.
