  1. Hey I'm excited for you!! Soon you'll be getting it under control, and there's lots of stuff that helps eczema like medicated bath oils and moisturisers, plus it's always worse in the winter, I used to get a lot of it! Make sure you're prepared for your accutane course by stocking up on lip balm and stuff best of luck! Xxx

  3. I'm sorry to hear that, maybe a second course for slightly longer might help? I know how frustrating it can be, I hope you find the right thing that works for you soon xxx
  4. Hey everyone I'm meg, I was on accutane for eight months in 2011 and have just passed my year anniversary of finishing my course. i wanted to update everyone on how I am doing and how the accutane experience was for me. I will attach a pic of how I look now and how I looked before accutane but you can find my full experience on my accutane blog here: http://www.acne.org/messageboard/index.php/topic/292016-my-isotretinoin-log-d/page__fromsearch__1 I was on 60mg a day from February to October
  5. Hey guys, So the 23rd October marked my year anniversary of stopping Accutane...but it looks as though my skin is going slowly back to how it was I thought I was being really lucky, I had no problems for months and months but just recently, perhaps in the last month or two, my acne has been coming slowly back. You know how you feel it under the skin, and then it works its way up into a big red angry spot? Yeah. I know my skin, and I know how my acne used to be; it's the same type of acne com
  6. heya i went up from 40 to 60 on my course, and it is quite a significant change, you do notice it. however, if your dermatologist thinks it will help prevent relapse then maybe you should think about it xx
  7. Oh my God you weigh 7 stone 2? i bet you're one of those lovely petite people that I envy, you lucky thing! I hate being tall! Anywayy, I'd like to say I've been off Accutane for four months now, but I remember when the oil crept back I was like NOOOOOOOOOOOO, but it did stop. I think it was my body just getting used to being off the drug. I also use a mattifying moisturiser and a toner, and translucent powder to set my makeup. Don't lose heart, just try and keep a routine with your skin; I li
  8. I was on Accutane for eight months, been off for four months now. I took it during the summer; in fact I went to Turkey for a week and spent every day in 40 degrees plus heat! I reapplied Mac factor fifty sun cream on my face every hour or two (other sun creams make me break out...) and used a little bit lower factor on my body, like maybe 35. I was absolutely fine, i got no sunburn or anything. Main thing is to keep hydrated. I say go for it, Accutane is the best thing I ever did for my skin xx
  9. Nicola Roberts Dainty Doll makeup is specifically for really fair skinned people. Im not sure if youre from America but in the UK they have it in Boots xxx
  10. Heyyyyy, I know exactly how you feel! My acne started at 17 and now I'm 21. I took accutane for eight months and now I'm clear apart from the occasional spot. I'm from the UK too, and my dermatologist told me I wasn't severe enough for accutane at first, but after she realised how much i had tried in the way of antibiotics and creams, she put me on accutane as nothing else was working. best thing i ever did. i suggest telling your derm how youve tried so much other stuff and its affecting your q
  11. Hey everyone, It's been over 4 months that I've been off accutane, so I've made a video to just tell you how I'm doing and show you how I look after my skin now. Hope everyones doing well Love Meg xxx
  12. Hey, i had pretty much exactly what you describe-bumps under the skin that wouldnt go and stayed for years. i tried loads of stuff too, and ive just finished a course of accutane-so happy i did it. the breakout will happen purely because the bumps come to the surface and finally go-thats what happened with me!! now i can run my hand over my face and feel smoothness-i say go for accutane but only if youre ready for it prepare for chapped lips and mood swings, but also prepare for much better ski
  13. Hey, i use a liquid concealer by Maybelline called 'Pure Cover Mineral', it comes in three shades (i get number two) but it goes on nicely, has good coverage and doesnt feel dry. I tap some translucent powder over the top when im done to set it, and it looks natural. Good luck xxxxx
  14. aaah dear, i know this situation well!!! to be honest, it will take its time to go despite what you choose to do, so i'd suggest just making sure it's clean and leaving it to its own devices!! don't worry, it will be gone soon xxx
  15. Hey everyooooone!!! It's been a little while since I last posted-almost a month! and so i thought it might be helpful for me to share what's been going on since i finished my 8 month course of isotretinoin (feb-oct this year). I've been off the tablets for just over six weeks now, and i'm really happy. My skin seems to be continuing to improve, in the way that some stubborn spots are finally coming to the surface and disappearing-eg inbetween my eyebrows, on my chin, one on my cheek-those st
