  1. so it's been almost two months, 6 days till two months! woohoo! skin is finally clearing up nicely, it's under control and can be covered by makeup. i've learnt to avoid nuts, spicy food coffee and dairy. altho i've done so in the past, it's never rid me of breakouts. i would wake up with new zits everyday and it was detrimental to my mental health. now i can finally leave the house with no makeup and still be relatively comfortable. can't wait for the final result. so far it's been amazing. i
  2. Day 38 skin has slowly but surely improved. now i have maybe one active on my face, and i can feel that skin is less oily, pores are smaller, and skin is less irritated. red marks are still present but i'm not worried bout those. once the pimples subside red marks shld slowly fade as well. very happy with the progress so far and it's only been a bit more than a month! i think my IB period is over!
  3. Day 31 Today face is under control, no painful spots, just some lingering ones... but who knows, tmr might be a complete different story, i'm just happy today i dont look hideous! but yay! finally on month 2 of accutane, week 5 of accutane!! 3 more months to go
  4. this. really. sucks. day 28, this would be the forth week since starting. and today my skin is looking crap. 5 or so actives, two prominently display on my cheek with white head, two big swollen ones on the jaw, and my chin looks like it has growths sticking out. ACCUTANE, WHY ARE YOU NOT WORKING YET??!!
  5. day 27 last night i put some aloe vera on my face and this morning i woke up my face was very soft. me like! 3 actives, skin relatively under control, at least it looks like it.... almost one month!!
  6. One line i highly recommend is Bioderma's hydrabio line. especially the toner and moisturizer, i can just feel my skin sucking up the moisture, it makes my skin soft and supple after i apply it. LOVE LOVE LOVE!
  7. Day 26 nothing to report, i currently have maybe one active and a bunch of scabs on my face... SCABS BE GONE! eyes not as dry anymore, i've been popping them fish oil + Vitamin E pills, i think staring at the computer screen all day as part of my job contributes to the dry eyes. been drinking alot more water to stay hydrated as well... it'll be one month soon... with accutane it's funny, every day is different, one day you have 1 active and the next you have like 10!
  8. You should always be taking Accutane with food. It is more effective that way. yes, my body reacted right away. couple hours after accutane with food my eyes got sooo dry
  9. day 25 today is ok. yesterday sucked. i had 5 cysts, they were growing on my face like unicorn horns and they hurt. there was white head and they just looked so conspicuous. i went home and popped them, them i put some 2% BHA on to help with the inflammation. this morning scabs formed around them and ofcourse that didnt look good. but my over all skin is more toned, despite the humongous zits spread across. eyes are dry, lips not so much... so far accutane seems to be doing it's thing, my hea
  10. Day 24 today i got more acnes, 4 actives, all huge, located on two sides of my temples symmetrically and couple on my jawlines. urgh. maybe cus i ate a ton of chocolate covered nuts and chips the other day... those always break me out... i wonder if after accutane does its thing, i'll still have to watch what i eat
  11. one of best posts ever! this inspired me to go on accutane... i look forward to the day i can leave house without a ton of makeup on!!
  12. day 22 wow, i finally see some improvements, i started taking accutane with food couple days ago, and then my eyes and lips got dryer and i got slight headaches. the other night i sorta woke up in a panic cus i felt headaches... and i was being super paranoid with the pressure in my head thing. headache subsided after a day or two , it was never intense or unbearable, just dull and nagging. today i woke up with my acnes shrunk, two cyst on my chin got smaller, and i only have two actives, usual
  13. day 19 each day is different. i still have actives, not dry... the other day i had alittle blood in the nose and i was so happy cus i feel like it's an indicator of the accutane effect kicking in. oh well that hasnt happened again since.\ it's only day 19 so ... patience is virtue.
  14. day 16 40mg/day been experiencing IB (alternating from one side of the face to the other) very strange. depressed and tired all the time. i take fishoil supplements so the face nose and lips are not too dry. constantly dehydrated though.
  15. fish oil supplements and drink tons of water!
  16. hey i just want to pop by to give you some encouragement. i am on day 13 for accutane, 40mg a day... i was on a very strict diet before and it kinda worked for me, but everytime i eat out (socially) i would end up breaking out. and dining out is an important social aspect in my life... on my strict diet i couldnt drink, but social drinking is also required of me once in a while. i decided to go on accutane cus i'm just sick of my skin being the whole determing factor of my life. so far i dont s
  17. quick update: i have been breaking out a little since it's hard to keep to the diet strict... i have been eating some grains and also had lamb and too much nuts over the weekend... that caused me to break out on half of my face :'( this diet really takes alot of concentration and will power... today is tough for me, i get this insatiable hunger and i feel like pigging out on chocolate and a juicy steak... must control my self!
  18. i have been adding munch food while on this diet, so far i know cooked veggie in moderation doesnt break me out.... will experiment more
  19. i'm going to bump this to spread the good work of wai. i binged on some alcohol last weekend, and broke out a huge cyst on my chin the next day. immediately went back on the diet and the cyst was flat the next day. AMAZING. after 14 years of acne... it wouldnt be a stretch to call this a CURE
  20. i'm in shanghai, there are tonz of organic food here... you just gotta go to the big supermarkets, they have organic eggs too... which part of china are you in?
  21. and yes, it is true. you have to consistently eat healthy to maintain a healthy body and keep acnes at bay... it is as close to a cure as anything can get
  22. i guess you could say i'm on a raw paleo/ wai diet... i get mad cravings for cooked food, especially hot food, and sometimes i crave dairy products. today i had alotta milk in my shake and now my stomach is upset dairy is no good for me but it's so delicious! everytime i walk by the bakery i crave bread. but i always keep one thing in mind. i either picture a banana or an apple or an egg in my head, and if i feel like i dont want it, i know i'm not "really hungry", and it's just my emotional a
  23. was on B5 and it helped the last time i tried it, which was 6 months ago... but then i started feeling funny (frequent washroom visits...really dry hair) and i got scared and stopped. a month ago i tried to go on it again but then i would feel like i have urinary tract infection symptoms all the time (like i feel the need to use the washroom but not really)... and i was scared of the long term consequences so i stopped mega dosing.... the side effects are just too scary. also B5 makes me miss my
  24. i followed the diet pretty stricty for the past two weeks, except for the occasional craving for cooked food (i would eat some cooked veggie and lean chicken, even pork ) maybe twice a week. and had some condensed milk in one of my fruit shakes. was on anti biotics, B5, pretty much tried all OTC acne medications, dan's regimen helped but never really cleared me...(i am still sorta on it now for spot treatments that was left over from before). also did all kinds of peels, bought lamps, did expens
