  1. Ok so my skin is still looking really really good and getting better every day, but for some reason my lips have turned horrible again. The right corner of my mouth has been split for over a week now and keeps scabbing and then breaking again and never really healing, it looks horrible! My boss at work brought me in some Aquaphor because she has just been to Chicago and got it for her hands, couldnt believe my luck as you cant buy it over here. It is helping a little but its not fixing up the sp

    Day 9 - 07.03.10

    Havent updated in a few days, sorry been really busy with work and had two assignments due this week. Ok some big changes since my last post. Firstly my skin did not stay clear like i had hoped, Friday was probably the worst day. Its almost that time of the month so i usually get a break out about now anyway but it was if my whole jaw line was covered it was really horrible. One of the ladies from work who i have told about the medication said to me on friday "aren't you on medication for your s
  4. Ok so yesterday morning i woke up and looked in the mirror and my skin was soooo dry and had started to flake around the pimples on my chin.. i looked like a freak but didnt really care because I understand thats how accutane works. Today I woke up and it was even worse but i took a shower and used my magic peeling glove really softly on my face which is amazing, it god rid of all of the dead skin without making my face raw or anything and then i slapped on some vitamin e cream. After this i

    Day 3 - 28.02.10

    Hey all, Once again no real changes, I have noticed that the left side of my chin has really flared up though I have about three pimples clustered together and it just looks gross. Couldnt resist the urge to pop them so my chin looks a bit feral right now, slapped something to on to dry them out and am off to bed now so hope it looks a little better tomorrow. Wish I could control my evil fingers!!
  6. Ok so onto the second day and everything is pretty much the same as yesterday. Some of my pimples from yesterday which were a little angry have started to calm down but this is normal for me, they seem to go pretty quickly but at the same time another is coming up some where else! My face and lips are pretty dry but this is normal for me too, i dont understand how i can have such dry skin but still pimples, but have been told that my skin doesnt shed properly and sits in the pores and hence t

    Day 1

    Hi Sillyseal,You are beginning your accutane adventure at exactly the same time as me, except that i am on the otherside of the world in australia! It would be great to compare how it works for both of us and when we start to notice the side-effects etc etc, let me know how you go!!Elle

    DAY 1 - 26.02.09

    This is my first day starting accutane and i have decided to begin a blog after reading through a couple of others, i think it's a great way to monitor progress and results, but the best part is there seem to be so many supportive people in this community who can offer great advice and make your bad days a little better! I am very excited to see results, although i realise this is no overnight miracle cure. I have had acne since i was 11 (now 21) and up until i was about 14 it was always on m
