My Accutane Journey

Dermatology Appointment


Hi c: My name is Courtney and i'm 17 years old. I'm a senior in highschool and will be starting esthetics Sept '11. Since suffering with acne for 6 years now i have a huge interest and passion for skin care and helping others with their skin woes. I have tried EVERYTHING. It's my mission to have clear skin and Accutane is finally being considered by my doctor and i. Today is the day that i have my consultation. I'm very nervous and excited at the same time. I will update this after my appointment. I hope whoever is reading this will follow my blog and find it helpful! <3

Some info about me and my skin:

Skin- My skin is very oily, sensitive, and obviously acne prone. I have melasma on the right side of my forehead so the sun is already my enemy. I have eczema but i take care of it very well. I have moderate to severe acne. It's mostly on my face but i also have body acne.

Skincare Regimen- My morning and night routine is the same. I wash my face with Cetaphil Gentle Cleanser and moisturize with Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion. Twice a week i will use Mario Badescus Healing and Soothing Mask.

Random info about me- I'm not sure if this will help knowing this stuff about me whilst on accutane but here we go.

Age: 17

Sex: Female

Height: 5'0ft

Weight: 110 pounds

Vision: Near sited

Allergies: I'm allergic to dogs and it sucks! I wanna puppy D:

Loves: My Boyfriend, Makeup, Skincare, Super Mario Bros!, FOOD, books, and YouTube :)

I thought some of things should be listed so some of you can see if Accutane changes the above information (except my age, sex, and height :D).

Thanks for reading! Stay tuned for my update.
