  1. lets stick to a positve log about accutane, everyone got to start downing it all time I agree! There is so much negative stuff about accutane on here. As for me i had mild-moderate, but very persitant acne for 5 years. Tried everything, nothing worked. I've been on accutane for 2 months and one week. I will admit my acne got the worst it has ever been for about two months, then about a week ago, i woke up and looked in the mirror and my skin looked 200x better than the day before. I k
  2. I agree with this person for the most part. Everything i have read says that it stops the production of sebum. It sucks all the moisture/oils out of your glands, inside and out. Thats why our skin gets dry achey joints dehydration etc.. No idea about it effecting hormones or anything like that.. At least i've never heard anything about it.
  3. I was just going to post the same thing!! It's on the back of my hands it looks like really small close together bumps, but it feels like dry skin. I also have dry skin reashes on my arms, and chest. I moisturize at least 2x a day, and i'm a month and a half in and the dry skin rashes just appeared.. That rash on my hands looks different like a food alergic reaction or something but it wont go away.. does this seem normal?? Oh also it stings when i put lotion on the rash on my hand.
  4. I had mild but persistant acne when i started tane. I've been on it for 1 1/2 months, and my skin has never been as bad as it is now. it just slowly kept getting worse and worse. I have days where it looks good, then the next it;s like a bomb hit. It's been really hard for me, but i deal with it. it's a small price to pay for clear skin i think. 2 or 3 months of bad skin and it's over (for most). I just keep praying tomorrow will be the day i stop getting zits. Until then i just take it
  5. I colored my hair yesterday, with mostly 9 and some 7. (10 is the lightest) My hair is fine! My scalp is fine! I say don't worry about it! After i colored it i had her put a really deep conditioning treatment on it and left it in for 24 hours. I'm just going to condition it as much as possible, but it doesn't feel any more dry or damaged in any way. So i think you should go for it, esp if it makes you feel better about your apperance! P.S. I've been on tane 2 months I meat that i colo
  6. I just bought it and tried it today, i wasn't as impressed as i thought i would be. I still had to use foundation. I need to try it a few more times but i'll let you know.
  7. that acyally happened to me too, so i think it is pretty normal.
  8. Very encouraging to hear. Thanks! I think i'm going to do it!
  9. Hum... still not convinced either way. All of my side effects have been very minimal, but i don't want to lose my hair! thanks for both of your input though!
  10. I'm on 40 mg a day and my lips really aren't that dry. I alwaya have to have chapstick on (aquaphor- go buy it. it'a the medicated ointment, it's amazing. i also like aveeno intense moisture.) They have never peeled or anything. I think it is due largely to the ammount of water i drink and the good fats i eat i.e. wheat germ oil, coconut oil, EVOO. as far as a break out goes, ya you'll get one mine wasn't horrible and it healed really fast. just drink tons of water!!
  11. I sleep at the very least 8 hours a day. i drink 9-11 glasses of purified water a day. and eat PLENTY of organic vegges and 2 pieces of fruit a day. I have been doing those things for 5-6 years, and i still have acne! If only it were that easy. (ps i also exercise very regulary)
  12. I hope not, but i kind of want her to add more blonde pieces! thanks!
  13. Hey there, sadly i've had a lot of yeast infections.. I think mine were also due all the antibiotics i have been on. You can try monistat, it works, but i prefer to take care of it a more natural way. Someone mentioned that you should take probotics (i now take those regularly), also whe i get an infection i take yeast fighters they help a lot, also you can get probotic inserts. Do you live near a whole foods, or a health store? they can help you tremendously and tell you everything you nee
  14. i've heard bleaching your hair while on accutane can be bad.. Someone said it will make you start balding.. is this true?? I REALLY need to touch up my roots! If bleach is bad, is other dye ok as long as there is no poroxide..? anyone know? If you've dyed your hair and nothing bad happened let me know!!! thanks!
  15. I completely agree, I often get discouraged reading some of people remarks and it worries me! But have 5 very close friends/family member s who have all been on accutane, and they say it changed their life. It worked wonders and they have never again had to worry about acne! (except my sis in law had to go on 2 courses- she had very very severe acne) But now her skin is so beautiful! minor scaring that you would never notice unless she had no make up on and pointed them out in really good b
