  1. hi guys im looking for a facial fake tan or facial moisturiser that has a bit of tan in it, does anyone know of one that doesnt clog pores? i recently tried johnsons moisturiser that gradually builds up a tan and broke out from it. really bummed because since taken a course of roaccutane ive been free from breakouts. i know that once this breakout has passed my skin will be back to normal, which i am grateful for, but obviously dont want the same thing to happen again. thanks for any help

    ultra low long term course

    i think it is day 23 so far my skin is doing great. had a pretty big wkend with halloween parties and my skin has held up well. ive had one clogged pore on my nose but thats it. had a couple of spots in weird places tho, my arm and leg, but i guess thats just purging. im thankful i havent had any trouble with my face. im reliefed to be back on accutane and it is working well even at such a low dose. going to have one more week on 10 mg a day then cut it back to 10 mg every 3 days and see how it

    Feeling really down

    hey laura, i remember reading a post of yours quite a while back. sorry to hear you're going through it at the moment. i think most people here can relate to how you're feeling so remember you're not alone! i dont know what severity your skin is at the moment or what other treatments you have tried but im presuming that if you have had acne for a while you would have tried a fair few things already. have you considered accutane? the side effects need to be considered but if you are feeling that

    Carmen's Accutane Journey

    hi there. ive just been reading through your log and felt i had to write something. im really sorry your going through such a rough time. depression and acne can really be so so difficult. hang in there, things WILL get better. being patient is the hardest thing when you're going through something you have very limited control over and is just plain not fair to begin with. you will feel so different when this is all over and your skin is better. take care

    ultra low long term course

    to be honest im not entirely sure. for now i just want to get my skin totally under control and see how things go. i can either keep going taking the lowest dose possible to keep my skin clear, maybe 10mg 2 or 3 times a week, or stick with 10mg everyday until i reach a culumative dose like i would have if i were doing a normal course. of course it would take a lot longer but as i have no side effects i dont mind that. im happy to be taking accutane.

    ultra low long term course

    day 15...i think right now my skin looks great. no active acne and my skin is very smooth. had a couple of tiny clogged pores but really not noticeable. its my time of the month and i usually have some sort of breakout abt now so im chuffed that my skin is looking so good. i have slight redness on my cheeks but its normally only when ive just got out the shower or got hot somehow. still on 10mg two days on one off. i think i will keep it at that until 3 weeks is up, so day 21, then go down to ev

    ultra low long term course

    day 12 still going well. had a few more clogged pores but they were really inflamed, nothing to worry about. my skin is still becoming less oily and the balckheads on my nose are coming out. attached a pic of each cheek. ive fortunate that accutane seems to work so well for me even at a low dose. my acne was only mild before though it just seems to have stopped the breakouts.

    ultra low long term course

    day 11 still taking two days on one day off of 10mg. my skin is looking pretty good, i have had a couple of clogged pores but no spots. still using the tea tree oil if it looks like there is something coming up that might become a problem. i got some bp cream as well recently but am not using it yet will wait until my skin is settled with tane first. side effect wise i dont reall have any, my oil is slowly starting to go and my lips a bit dry but only enough to use chapstick a couple of times a

    has anyone taken accutane for mild acne?

    although tane is meant for those suffering with severe acne, its uses DOES state that it can be used for people with milder forms of acne that are suffering pyschologically. having tried everything and been through the years of ups and downs, it sounds as though you are. not everyone gets an IB, some do some dont, sorry you are dealing with that. but hang in there, keep in mind accutane is the most successful drug for fighting acne and check out the gallery for some ispiration. things will get b

    ultra low long term course

    thanks guys. its been another couple of days and my skin right now is looking great, ive had 2 days of clear skin which i havent had for a couple of months. its probably too early for the tane to be doing alot, especially at such a low dose, but im no rush to increase the dose i'll take things slowly.

  13. hi guys ive just started a long term utra low dose of tane and thought id keep a log as there is quite a bit of discussion about it at the moment but not many logs. i previously did a usual accutane course at 30mg for 8 months about a year and a half ago, which worked fantastic but unfortunately hasnt semmed to have lasted. my acne is nowhere near what is was which i am thankful for, but after having clear skin and knowing how much better i feel i dont want to wait and see what happens with my s
