  1. if your not on a prescription I would go to Ulta and buy the Mario Badescu Drying Lotion. If you put that that on a cyst/pimple it will dry anything up almost overnight. Even small deep cysts. It also reduced the redness dramtically.
  2. I noticed the chapped lips first, but I have VERY oily skin it took me about 2 weeks to notice that my skin started to dry out. I'm a little over a month in and its really dry now. It was surreal to me to put on that much moisturizer on at night. I have to say though, start doing it sooner rather than later. The best advice I've gotten from someone I know that had been though Accutane before is start the moisturizer the SECOND you start to dry out. Literally every night I put on the thick heavy
  3. If your still having problems with redness , I just bought an Aveeno Ultra Soothing Nightcream ( about $20 at CVS, Walgreens, Target etc...) really helps soothe the skin and redness.
  4. I know its expensive but the coverage is legit and it doesn't irritate my face. Chanel Lumiere Velvet. You don't need much, its hydrating and looks beautiful. I won't use anything else. My skin is super sensitive as well and this is the best foundation I have ever used. I used to be a hard core Clinique user but I swear by this stuff now. INVEST. I also use the smashbox loose powder because its not reflective to light which does wonders and sets everything in a very matte way.
  5. I was so worried about this and am just now stating to taper off prednisone. It was like a miracle drug to begin with. It literally supressed ALL of of my acne but about 3 months in it gave me "moon face" BAD when I jumped from 20 mgs a Day to 40. About 3 weeks into my Accutane on 40 mgs of prednisone a day as well as 40mg a day of Accutane I started to get moon face, bloat up, gain weight,.....ugh. I know that the initial breakout is awful. It looked like every damn pore on my face was a pimpl
  6. Okay so 1 month and 1 week in, and looks like the Accutane is starting to "kick in". Its not anywhere near good or even great but I wake up every morning and can tell the difference. Although I'm very dry and my lips are chapped beyond belief I think the initial breakout is over (fingers crossed). I would hope, if I don't have another breakout, that the worst of it has passed. Also since my dermatologist is now tapering me off the prednisone my face seems to have started to to stop being so roun
  7. Today was my appointment for my second month of Accutane and I'm happy to say my dermatologist upped my dose from 40mg per day to 60 mg per day. I'm hoping this starts working a little faster. Also we discussed the wonderful side effects from the prednisone and came up with a regimen to taper off of it. All in all I feel a lot better about what is going on and hopefully this moon face will start subsiding and the Accutane will kick in so I can start to feel like my normal self again. I am a bit
  8. Last night I finally left the house. The initial breakout has calmed down a little bit since I got my new prescription of prednisone (moon face still going strong though ) It was just to go see a movie with my boyfriend and I figured hey dark room no one to see me really...fine. However we both manage at the same bar and he wanted to go by and check on everything. Ugh. I hadn't properly prepared myself to see ANYONE let alone anyone I knew. I reluctantly agreed to go preparing myself to sit in
  9. So update, for redness and dryness Aveeno Ultra-Calming Nourishing Night Cream. I've used it a couple nights in a row now, and let me tell you, this stuff works! Not that the redness is gone, but much better and it provides excellent moisture for the dry skin. My skin hasn't been nearly as dry and flaky when I wake up. Invest! I got it at CVS Pharmacy but its sold everywhere Aveeno is sold Target, Wal-Mart, Walgreens etc.... invest. $20
  10. Thank you AcneProne22. I'm very nervous about the next 6 months. My skin has broken out even worse than when I started the Accutane. Also the whole moon face from prednisone is so attractive! Its hard because I'm a bartender and deal with very judgmental people on a daily basis. I'm really hoping this is all worth it.
  11. I've been reading so many posts on this site and finally decided to write my own. I'm not sure if its to share my experience or make me feel any better about everything I've dealt with with acne but its something. I can't remember not having acne. I started getting pimples in the 6th grade. I was eleven. Of course at that time no one cared, and by that I mean the people that surrounded me in my life, which were a bunch of other 11 year olds. When I started middle school I was already heavily inv
