  1. Here's where I'm at right now to give you an idea of what I'm dealing with and so you can see how far I've come when I post occasional photos, which I think I'll do every week or every other week, just depending on how much difference I see in the amount of time ALSO: I should note that I took these photos right after removing my makeup and slathering on my night cream which is why my skin has a sheen to it, it isn't normally that shiny and I know it looks oily in the pictures but I don't norm
  2. Hey there guys, so as the title of this blog suggests, I'm going to be documenting my journey and experiences during the first leg of my treatment with isotretinoin. My dermatologist has me on 3 months to start, and then at that point I'll head into the office again where I assume we'll see what my progress is and determine whether or not I need to or should continue treatment, maybe at a different dosage.

  6. Nothing spectacular

    I've been off of gluten for about three months now, my main motivation in making that change was to see if it would make a difference in my moderate hormonal acne. While I have felt a generally better sense of well being (more energy, less stomach aches, bloating, gas, and indigestion) I haven't seen much improvement in terms of my skin.
