    Been done accutane for about a month...

    I've been off Accutane since around March 2008 (can't remember the actual date) - i was on 40mg/day for about 7 months. In the last 2-3 months i have noticed a big increase in the amount of acne i have. I didn't have any large-ish whiteheads until last week and now i have a few and this is SO worrying. I'd say my skin is about 50% as bad as it was before i started Accutane. I'm so sad, once again acne rules my life, my skin is as oily as it was pre-Accutane and i'm miserable again...

    hair colouring

    I've dyed my hair twice whilst on accutane and have experienced no side effects due to this...both times i dyed my hair a dark brown and it seems to have improved my hair condition and i haven't experienced any signs of hair loss either.

    Roaccutane + Food

    yeah should be fine even if you aren't eating much throughout the day...so long as you have the pills with a meal that has a decent amount of fat in it...

    Accutane in the Sun

    yeah defo be careful i had been on 20mg/day of tane for one week and i went snorkelling on the great barrier reef for 6 hrs in 40 degree Celcius heat...im very pale and prone to sunburn to begin with, so i made sure i applied high SPF every hr whilst i was snorkelling anyways i thought i escaped sunburn but when we headed back to shore i realised i was VERY badly burnt...ended up having to go to the emergency dept of the local hospital with 3rd degree burns on my back, severe sunstroke/headach

    Ok so this is me...and a little bit about me: I have the lowest self-esteem in the world. When i had severe acne in october and onwards of 2005, it bothered me not that much, but now that i'm pretty darn clear from taking doxycycline and a rigorous regime of BP and expensive products like Proactiv, Chanel and Clinique (which have done wonders for my skin) I am still more critical than ever of all my flaws (there are so so many). I constantly feel bad about myself and try to tell myself all the

        Me & my best mate.

        From the album: The new CLEAR me!

        This is me & my best mate in the world @ dinner, i'm on the right with the beanie. I was on doxy 100mg/day from october 2005-february 2007 and throughout this time used 5% BP plus the proactiv regime. I grew tired of constantly pumping a high dose of antibiotics into my body every day so i went to a derm appt a few weeks back (mainly for my back as my face is generally just mild acne, although it was looking healthy in this pic) and he put me on a 5% salicyclic acid & alcohol based l

        F*ck Acne

        I know exactly how you feel mate. I haven't been on the .org in months due to other stuff taking over my life (uni, work etc.) and i came on here to rant and start a new thread but your story really hit home with me and is exactly how i feel. I can't put into words what acne has done to me mentally. I wish it would disappear. I wish the scars would. I wish my negativity towards most things due to acne would dissipate. That's about as likely as my acne disappearing tomorrow. I fucking hate this d

        Just another of my usual updates. Wearing no makeup here 'cept for some mascara. Have been using tonnes 5% BP in the last couple of weeks...think this managed to keep me clear as, even when i was a stressed child from uni exams. As a result my skin is quite irritated/itchy/flaky and it also happens to be winter here so that's not helping. A couple of blemishes, nothing major but - one next to left eye which you can see, others seem to be hidden by flash. Have been getting tonnes of sleep

              doxy 11 months.

              From the album: The new CLEAR me!

              i haven't posted a pic-aroo in a long while because my skin has been generally quite good to me, always has its ups and downs though i've been on doxy 100mg/day for a bit over 11 months...kinda scared of how to come off the antibiotics sometime soon without a full blown breakout. im going to stick with them for a while yet... my neck is also super dry/irritated/flaky and i've never applied BP there...
            3. smokey is rather good thankyou :)

              and how are you these days?

                evil smokey

                From the album: Fun pics.

                My cat Smokey...just thought i'd upload a pic of the itty bitty kitty because i haven't seen him in a few months (i don't live at home anymore where he is) and i miss seeing his furry mug every day. Male cat model material? Think so. He'd be so bitchy but, how evil does he look here hehe
