  1. I've been on two courses of accutane. The second round kept me clear for just under a year, then the zits slowly started creeping back. Now, it's just mild acne by any means, like tiny ones on my cheeks and forehead and clogged pores on my nose and cheeks, but lately I've been getting these painful ones above my upper lip that come in clusters of about seven at a time, make me feel incredibly ugly for the entire time they're there, and then they leave red marks when they're done. These sorts
  2. Well, I got mistaken for a fifteen-year-old today. NOT cool. It might have been the fact that I hadn't brushed my hair and it was all sticking up on one side like I just ran a marathon through a forest OR it might have been the fact that I was wearing bright orange and yellow 80's pants and singing "Hollaback Girl" in the middle of the grocery store. Nevertheless, I digress... That AHA stuff is nice. I don't know if it's doing anything yet, but it's nice. I may forgo the retin-a all togethe
  3. I just started reading your log and I must say, it's rather enjoyable and hilarious.
  4. Don't use anything containing SLS or mineral oil on your face. AND don't use hairsprays or any type of hair products that spray all over because it'll spray onto your face and clog your pores.
  5. Wow - what a difference! Don't worry, in a couple of months, you're skin will be so clear you can't believe it. If you're looking for a good cleanser, Cetaphil is a good one, and so is CeraVe.
  6. Can you even get accutane in 5 mg capsules? Anyways - there's a lot of threads in this topic if you just google it; I can't say if it works personally because I've never tired it.
  7. Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog . Oh yes - the insensitive relative comment. I can totally relate. One time my little brother had chicken pox and my grandma came over, took one look and my face and asked if I had chicken pox too.
  8. So I got some of that AHA in the mail today that they sell here. It didn't really sting when I put it on (unlike that neutrogena healthy skin shit which made me feel like my face was getting sandblasted). Plus, I got a free mini benzoyl peroxide with it, so YAY!
  9. I know the feeling. I hated wearing my hair back, but had to when I went to work, and then there was bright fluorescent lights on top of it all that magnified every mark on my face.
  10. I've heard that pure aloe vera gel (like fruit of the earth brand) is a good moisturizer, but I've never tried it, so I can't vouch for it.
  11. Good luck! I recently finished a course of accutane and it's SO worth it.
  12. So - according to this thing, if you get acne in your eyeballs, it has to do with your testicles?
  13. Wow - reading this brought back a lot of memories for me. I've done a lot of the same things as you, and I also have anxiety and depression. Unfortunately, accutane was the only thing that got me clear. Your current diet sounds incredibly hardcore, but I wish you luck in your journey with acne. Everyone on here knows how much it sucks (or else we wouldn't be on here).
  14. Just searching these boards for this sort of thing. This happened to me too. I always had curly hair (think a bunch of curly fries coming out a head) but after accutane the curls were bumped up to "one step below dreds" as my brother puts it.
