  1. So let's see...it's been about two months now that ive been taking accutane. (sorry i havent really been updating) well, my skin has deffinately cleared up quite impressively. its not 100% but its a heck of a lot better than before. about a week ago i was actually OKAY with going out in public without makeup but not too exstatic about it. which is actually a big step for me because i would NEVER go out without makeup on before. so this week was my spring break and i went on a trip up to I
  2. hello again everyone! well, i must apologize to those who might actually care about me not putting up an entry last week but it's because i didnt notice any difference in my skin. maybe just the slightest bit of dryness in the lips and thats it! my face was just as acned up and oily as usual. though, i have been noticing a difference in something for the past few days now. the back of my hands are soooo dry and scaley! which you'd think id be mad or freaked about but im actually super exci

  4. So the journey begins...... I know everybody says that but thats what it feels like Gaaah Im sooooo excited (if you couldn't already tell by the title ) I don't really know what to say other than hi, Im Natalie.

I'd be willing to pay for everything too! im

  9. Hello there forum! Alright, here's the dealio. I'm a 16 year-old-girl(going on 17) and I've tried EVERYTHING (same as most of you) and NOTHING has worked. I've gone to my derm. multiple times and each time they prescribe me different anti-biotics, topical creams, the works.
