  1. I'm almost done my cycle of accutane. I was also scared all those horror stories everyone's been telling me about accutane. But i'm happy to say their not true for me. My skin is looking good. I only seem to get pimples now when i'm due for my period. I have some red marks, but nothing extreme, they seem to be fading daily. The only thing I dislike about accutane is the dry lips. They were very uncomfortable for me at times, sometimes they even bled, but rather then that I haven't got anything
  2. Mac is full coverage, it's excellent. Doesn't clog pores....I swear by it! )
  3. I constantly look at ppl's skin. I like to compare myself w/other ppl. I know it sounds horrible but sometimes when you look at other ppl's skin you feel better about yourself.
  4. I'm on my 13th week and i'm just seeing improvements now.....don't worry it takes time
  5. your skin looks flawless.....i don't see any red marks at all
  6. I tried it, didn't like it. It gave me a orange tone, and I used the lightest colour.
  7. To be honest i've been having the same problem lately. I have tons of make-up, and nothing covers it up completely. You can still see everything!! I use maybelline everfresh foundation and I also use a concealer stick by maybelline. Makes my face look a tad better, but you can still see a lot of the pimples/red marks.
  8. My skin is really bad right now. I feel the same way, I can totally relate. But my fiance has seen me many times w/o make-up on. He still thinks I look beauitful, he said theres not much of a difference. Like polkadots said no make-up covers everything up, so i'm sure your boyfriend knows you have some skin trouble.

    Pale skin

    yeah I'm also really pale. All the marks seem to look worse on our skin. I'm ivory for make-up, as light as they come!
  10. Im kind of the same, My skin feels and looks best (best given the circumstances that is) after a good nights sleep, then by the end of the day more blotchyness seems to occur. Then again my skin dries the most during sleep which is kind of what the accutane is meant to do, so that may be why. I have learnt today from my Doc that I do not need to moisturize my skin all the time which can make my face look red & more blotchy anyway, as it can clog the pores ofcourse which may affect the effect
  11. I know people who have nice skin. But your right, no one has perfect skin, theres always a red mark, pimple, blemish somewhere on the skin. No such thing as flawless skin. Since i've been having skin problems i've been looking a lot more at people's faces. A lot of the time you feel better about yourself that way. I realize my skin isn't as bad as i thought
  12. When I wake up in the morning my skin looks pretty good, it looks well rested. At night time, my skin looks blotchy, red and all the imperfections look worse. I'm not sure if its because i'm tired or not. It's strange that my skin looks different, at different hours of the day. Anyone else notice this?
  13. I can totally relate to you. I tend to wear a lot of foundation at times. I won't leave the house without it either. I don't wear too much, but I wear enough that it makes my skin feel like it can't breathe. My goal once i'm done tane is to have an option whether I want to wear make-up or not. What you should do is, gradually start taking the make-up off bit by bit. That way it won't be such a ''omg'' when you decide to go completely without it one day. I'm noticing that I have to put less on
  14. From the album: Crystal's accutane experience...

    After two months of tane, still not happy.
  16. I'm almost two months into accutane. I've been having problems with accutane. I'm still getting persistant cystic pimples as well. The red marks that were on my face before tane are still there. They haven't got smaller or anything yet. I'm starting to get unbearable side effects like : dry nose (causes it to bleed) really dry lips, so dry that they bleed and peel. Really bad headaches at times. I'm waiting for accutane to work? but i'm very disappointed so far. I'm on dosage 40......when do
  17. I've been on it for almost two months now. The more I take it, I noticed the side effects are getting worst. I have REALLY dry lips, dry throat (always needing water) this week I just started getting nose bleeds, my nose is really sore and dry. I have some cystic pimples that just came in. My skin is starting to peel, some headaches....grrr...it's starting to get uncomfortable
  18. I don't get why some pimples leave marks on your face and others don't....it's weird, their all the same kind of pimple (cystic) but some heal better then others, and I do the same treatment. Does't make sense to me....any ideas???
  19. Acne Type: mild-moderate, mild on forehead, chin, nose. More moderate on cheeks. Cystic pimples fairly often, dry skin, combination Age: 21 Height: 6'1 Weight: 175lbs Mgs & months of course: first month 20mg, second month 40 mg Now: still remains the same, still new on accutane.
