  1. So I teared up when I read this. CLEAR SKIN! STILL! Congratulations! I hope you're well
  2. A year and 2 months since finishing Roaccutane So, it's been a while. Things have been pretty tough and I haven't had a chance to write an update but here goes... In October this year (almost exactly a year after finishing Roaccutane), I noticed my skin was beginning to worsen and I had a few little skin coloured spots down the sides of my face and on my chin. Terrified that it would only get worse, I went to the doctor and was prescribed Zineryt. Although it doesn't have great reviews o
  3. I think my skin really started to improve at the 4 month mark. However, once things started to get better, I was on a roller coaster that only went up! It was amazing and I really hope you have the same results. Good luck!
  4. I got accutane on the NHS, as do thousands of people every year in the UK. Accutane is not like other drugs; it's dangerous. No offense but I think you'd be stupid to take it without the supervision of a qualified doctor.
  5. Thanks for the response. Yes, I'm fed up with my skin but I don't want to risk damaging it in the process of trying to make it better (especially after everything accutane but my poor skin through). I think I'll try MOM if the oil gets any worse and becomes unbearable so thanks for your advice :)
  6. I was worried about this topic too. I started accutane when I was 14, I turned 15 during my course and I took it for almost 6 months. I finished my course 5 months ago and I've grown about 1cm since then. I'm pretty sure the drug hasn't affected my growth. I think you need to decide what's most important to you. For me, I would rather be 30cm tall and have beautiful skin than be lovely and tall but with the awful skin I used to have. But if your height really is important to you then maybe y
  7. Nothing for oily skin at the moment. I finished taking accutane 5 months ago and I thought my oily skin had been cured. However now my skin is getting oilier my the day and I'm looking into something that will help me get rid of it Are there any other alternatives that will give me the same amazing results as MOM?
  8. Hi all! I have been wondering for a while about the benefits of using Milk of Magnesia (MOM) on my oily skin. So many people have had amazing results with it that I was considering trying it. However, that was until I found this- Some pH examples: pH 1 battery acid - (acid extreme) pH 1.5 -2 = Gastric (stomach) acid pH 2.5 = Cola soft drinks pH 2 = lemon juice pH 3 = vinegar ph = 3.5 Orange Juice pH 4.6-5.5 = healthy skin pH 5.5 = rain, (pure water, when exposed to the atmospher
  9. Argggg the quote thingy isn't working... ^^^ But to answer your question, yes, I had severely oily skin before accutane. During my course my skin obviously became very very dry. Now, my skin is no longer extremely dry but not all the oil has returned. My skin is now a healthy amount of oiliness- not to dry or too oily. My skin is... NORMAL (!!) and I am loving it. I am very well thank you, I hope you are too
  10. Hey there, I'm also from the UK. I finished my course of Roaccutane in October 2013 and my derm told me not to use anything on my skin (why??!!). Soon after this I started to get tiny skin coloured spots on my nose and a few on my cheeks. I started using Finacea on them and they went away with a couple of months. The only thing I will say is be careful, your skin will still be very fragile from accutane and you don't want to damage it by using harsh treatments on it too quickly. Good luck
  11. I'm a fellow Briton and I finished my course of Roaccutane 3 months ago. I love the results and I really hope you have the same success. Good luck
  12. 3 Months After Finishing Roaccutane Just a quick update: MY SKIN IS STILL CLEAR!!
  13. I had quite good success with this antibiotic but it took over 4 months to really give me improvements. I'd continue taking it for a few more months if I was you
  14. I managed to get Roaccutane on the NHS last year, it was the best decision I've ever made. I remember my skin was in a relatively good phase too when I eventually got my derm appointment, although I emphasized to the derm that this often happens with the cycle of my periods, maybe say the same thing? Do you have any photos of your skin when it was in its bad phase? If so, definitely show the derm them. If not, don't lose hope. If you've been suffering with acne for a number of years,
