  4. Hey guyyyys! Sorry for not replying lately I've been out almost every day and just been crazy busy!!. I'm on day 15 and things are muuuuuch better. My grandma picked me up some burts bee's chapstick and it's been working amazingly. Lips definitely feel alot better. I noticed that most of my pimples are going down and are mostly just red marks other than a few that have scabbed over (still working on the picking lol) haven't seen any new white heads really. I still have one bump on the side of my
  5. Hey love! As positive as things have been going the past week it's not day 9 and things have been kinda horrible. I think my IB is starting.. all the little bumps that were underneath the skin are now coming up. Nothing I can't handle because I've been dealing with acne for years not, but theres one large bump underneath the skin right where my glasses sit on my nose and it's extremely painful. Also, I've been drying up ALOT, and I'm horrible with remembering to moisterize. My lips are starting
  6. Thanks hun! My mood is feeling alot better today. I just woke up and felt alright. Everything else such as side effects and whatnot I can handle, but not being able to control my emotions yesterday was really uncomfortable for me! thanks though hun! How is your course going? I've been really slack with reading logs the last couple days xoxoxo It's going well thus far, thanks. Check out my log when you get time The biggest thing has been an eczema rash that started really quickly after I bega

  9. First off, you are absolutely adorable lol. But congrats on day 15. I'm on day 10 so not far behind you. I hear ya on that whole chapped lip business. It's been brutal for me the last couple days! As you said though, patience is a virtue. I also feel you on the no changes as of yet. But eh, what are you going to do lol. How long of a course are you on? (Don't think I saw that posted, but who knows it's late haha) Good luck hun!

  11. Hey Courtney day 5 already!! Crazy how much time is flying by. I remember my first month dragged on, everyday mattered so much to me! After I got over the fact I was on the medication and I knew how it was affecting me the time passed by so much faster. The dry lips, boy oh boy. Mine dried out quickly. About week 2 mine started and just got worse and worse everyday. Honestly there is no stopping it from happening. Other products work better than others that is for sure. I only use Aquaphor and B
  12. Ahhh! I am so excited for you my dear. I'm glad we're able to do this together. I really hope you feel as good as I am right now. And if you're not just know you can come to me for some cheering up <3
  13. Hey guyyyys! So I'm on day five, and to be honest I'm actually really surprised. What I thought before was incorrect, I'm not dealing with dry lips, that was just me freaking out a bit about everything and licking my lips too much haha. Most of my actives have already been healing up. It's strange, I'm hoping this means that I'm going to skip the IB and go straight to healing. I've only noticed one under the skin bump since starting which is crazy since usually I have about 2-3 new ones every o
  14. Thanks Rach! Yeah, I'm definitely taking all the precausions and have filled everyone in on my situation with accutane. I'm naturally very light skinned so I usually lather on the suncreen and stay in the shade anyways because I burn so easily but I definitely just wanted to make sure and keep myself safe. I've had 3rd degree burns from the sun 2 or 3 years ago and never want to experiencce that again lol
  15. Hey guys, So, I'm about 4 days in and my friends are planning a camping trip for this weekend. Do you guys think I'll be okay going as long as we have tarps set up so I'm in the shade and have a lot of sunscreen on? I really wanna go but I wanna be safe and I know being in the sun is a big no-no for tane users, but I really don't wanna miss out on everything this summer. Let me know what you guy's think
  16. So it's the end of day 2 and I thought I'd give a little update Today and yesterday have been good. Obviously there isn't any progress quite yet being day 2 and all but I have noticed a few things 1: My lips started drying out halfway through the day. Not horrible but just a slight bit that my Labello Regular Lip Treatment didn't take care of right away, so thats good. 2: I noticed that I felt a bit sick/faint in the middle of the day, not sure if that's a side effect or just me not feeling w
  17. Of course hun! And yeah, I think i've set myself up enough to realize that an IB is going to happen and I'm not going to like it, but if it's what's going to lead me to clear skin in the future It's totally worth it. I'm usually depressed from my skin being bad and my hypertension anyways, so it shouldn't be too new of a feeling for me. Thanks again for helping me out and talking to me about it. It's definitely crazy finally being on my way to getting this done with
  18. Great question, I was wondering about that as well! I'm pretty good with eating a lot of friuts and veggies anyways, but I've heard a lot of people say that they don't really change a lot about their diet, just adding more healthy things like nuts and fruits with less dairy. I'm only a day in and I already feel like i need more water by the minute!
  19. Thanks love! Best of luck to you as well! It's cool that so many people are starting around the same time as us so we'll all be able to follow eachother and see eachothers progress and how it differs from one person to another. I'm on 20mg 2x/day (morning and night) so, 40mgs all together. I'm not going through a Derm, I'm actually going through my doctor but yes you are correct, it is usually by weight. my doctor said I am on a lower dosage because even though my skin is moderately bad, I have
  20. Yeah, my thought process at the moment is that with the way I'm feeling about myself now and going through this constant battle can be helped with a little bit of time and a little bit of work then what's stopping me. Thanks hun, I most definitely will. I've also started a log too, so feel free to check that out if you wanna check up on my process <3 Again, thanks for the post.
  21. Thank you so much for this post! I'm on my first day and this really just makes me pumped for the future and giving me that extra want and need to stick it out
  22. Wooooow Katie! You're skin looks INCREDIBLE! Congratulations darlin! Geez, im only on day 1, i can't wait to see results like yours. You look gorgeous <3
  23. That's definitely one of my main concerns, the initial breakout, but I guess it's worth it if it's going to help in the end! And ah, that totally makes sence.. I'm definitely going to be doing that to my nails. I was also thinking of getting my fake nails again because during the time that I had them, they were thick and flat at the ends so I couldn't pick at all. Thank you for replying and following <3 Haha this is so crazy, because I replied to the post above yours before I read yours and
