  3. Hi! it also helps to give your hair nutrients in a more direct way to help it stay strong despite all the stress it is under. I have a protein treatment that I do once a week at home. its 2 eggs yolks, 2 table spoons of olive oil and mayonnaise. Mix these together then put the mix in ur hair. Wear a cap and keep it in for an hour and then wash as usual with gentle shampoo and moisturising conditioner designed for dry hair. Your hair will be well nourished and better able to cope with the stress
  4. It the 3 month(90 days) mark 2 days ago! Felt sooo good! Also went for my doctor's appointment! He was really happy with the huge improvement! AT this 3 month point my face was completely clear! no pimple in sight! it felt really good that my face and skin was looking smooth! However, almost on cue, in the late evening i got a pimple on my chin. The next day it developed into a white head. Its still camping there on my chin...feeling right at home it is!!! Its not sore or anything but its an
  5. So here is the report on weeks 7 & 8! I hit the 2 month mark yesterday! Hard to think I still have 4 whole months to go!!! Face Amazing!!! to quote one of my friends," your face is improving rapidly!" Lots of those kinds of comments! the general texture of my face has improved by about 80%!!!its incredible! Of course i still have some big ones that pop out on the regular but they seems to go as quickly as they come! for example, i had a big white head one my right cheek yesterday but
  6. Hi there, So i have combined week 5 & 6 together! PROGRESS: Generally, its good news all round. I have had a few comments here and there from friends about how much my skin has cleared up. I noticed too but didnt wanna jinx the progress. But yes there is a definate difference. In week 5 i still have huge white heads on my cheeks but the concentration and area of inflammation had significantly decreased! The right side of my face especially! In week 6 there was a cluster of large w

  8. thanks a bunch for tip about the vaseline! i was so low then! so thanks a bunch! my lastest post give you credit
  9. I have survived the 1st month! (just! ) So yesterday I finished my first batch of oratane and hit the 30 day mark! elation and jubilation! MY FACE DAY 28- 30: I observed a marked improvement in my skin suddenly. I woke up on day 28 and the huge white heads from the day before had shrunk hugely! (except for one that remained angry and red with a white "cherry" on top) After steaming my face I ended up up just gently popping it. (only one i have done that to so far! This general impr
  10. 24 TODAY! something to celebrate and be excited about! the day i was born! so today i am gonna keep my head up! pimply face and peeling, lips and all! God gave me life and that fact in itself makes me beautiful!
  11. Really happy for you!!! 3 months in and you are dancing for joy!!!!
  12. thanks a buch, i will definately give it a go! coz at this stage i am quite desperate! all i can think of is, if my lips are doing this now, less than a month into it, how about at 4 months! or at the end of my treatment!!! ;( i want clear skin, but dnt want it to be a trade off for another face issue ! Thanks again for the tip!
  13. My lips are peeling and dry and this morning i woke up with lots of litle red bumps on them!!! what is going on! how can I stop this. the Blistex seems to be failing me! i dont want to leave my room!
  14. Wow! 59 days and nothing! you seem to be so patient. I wish i could have that. The thought of no improvement after 60days makes me feel a little sad. Today is day 26 and i dnt see anyting except the addition of 3 white heads!!! i want the IB period to just end! i can handle no improvement but seeing new addiotion everyday is hard!I am on 40mg/day. You? Sometimes I feel like i want it to be hire but im already suffering with the side effects so i dont want them to get worse!
  15. Really? cool. how's it going on ur end?
  16. Your post made me smile! interesting indeed!

  17. So Grad came and went everyone! and I did go out!!!! but to ensure my survival I had to not be as strict on myself as I have been since i started oratane! I had completely stopped drinking and using make up. But as you know, going out with out these too during grad weekend is kinda like going into war with out a weapon! heheh! so i allowed myself some foundation to cover stuff up and i got my hair done and u know what, i felt like cinderella!!! i got awesome compliments! and since i have been fe
  18. 21 days in and I think I have entered the "break out period" without a doubt. I have lots of large whiteheads popping up all over the place! big ones that are tag-teaming up on me and coming out in pairs!!! My pores seem to be oozing a white substance so my fave just generally looks bad and i feel like scrubbing it silly with exfoliator! but alas!!! I know i can't!!! Its very tough, its grad week at my varsity so all my mates from last year are coming and the few i have seen all ask, what's
  19. Hi there, haved had a bikini wax but discussed it with my doc. I am only 3 weeks into it. All i can say is accutane is a systemic treatment. it works and affects you EVERYWHERE!!! read ur patient info leaflet. So in short, don't do it!
  20. Two week mark has come and gone now and i am Day 15. It would be nice if i could look at my face and say there is some improvement but no there is none. I have taken pictures to ark this point in my journey and i just pray to God with all my heart that one day i can look back and see how far i have come. But for now, it feels as though i am exactly where i was two weeks ago....and that's pimple and acne ville! The only thing that is a constant reminder of the change going on in my body are th

  24. Hello All, I love all the sites out there with info but the one thing i would like is a step by step narration of the Oratane Journey! I decided to do this blog for any one else out there who is thinking of taking this drug so that this can be a full and complete point of reference for them! I will put up at least 1 post every week! So here goes I started taking Oratane on March 17 2011 following a massive breakout that gave my confidence a real life-size knock! (and i'm a confident perso
