I haven’t posted on here in a while seeing as I didn’t receive much engagement, which is fine cause that was never my intention. Neverless I started this to show anyone who was in a similar low point as me that it is in fact possible to concur this monster that is acne, but it’s gonna take patience, and consistency to get there, which I’m finding anything worth going after in life does.
Looking back my biggest regret was obsessing over my skin to the point I did. I would’ve spent 10,000$ on a cream if it promised to eliminate my acne. Not literally but I probably spent hundreds of dollars on products over a short period of time which probably made my problem even worse. Not to mention in my delusion I must have thought popping every zit and getting every last bit of pus and blood out cause that’s what I did.
If you can take anything from this post I would hope it would be trust the process. I read more horror stories about accutane, which are important to read, but these are usually extreme cases, or people trying to draw lines that don’t exist. “I was on accutane, never had this before, now I do, must be the accutane.” While this may be the case you also 6-12 months older and could’ve developed the problem regardless. Personally I had a bit of dry lips, and some joint pain towards the end. Was it worth it? absolutely, will I go back on if I need to? Absolutely. This is very case by case, and given how my body reacted I would consider myself lucky to not have to deal with any harsh side effects, and such a dramatic success at the same time.
here is my final transformation:
Left was this morning, the right was the worst photo I could find (for dramatic effect ;))
thanks to all who have read this far and remember, you will get over this.

Hi guys, all is well, how are you guys?
in regards to skin, I am stilling getting acne but it is very little and the actual spots are just small white heads which disappear after 2 days with little redness.
My skin does get red now and again though when I've been exercising or shaving, showering etc. (Which it is in these pictures, after a shower)
Side effects, my lips are still slightly dry, I need to apply balm morning and night, skin is still slightly dry so I'm still moisturising which I will drop eventually to 1 time a day. In regards to everything else it's back to normal.
Just under 2 weeks until I get married! I will say though, I've noticed my face to have a lot more freckles than usual, don't know if this is anything to do with acctuane.
