  1. Hi all, im on month 5 and almost finished with my second course of accutane. Happy to say that it cleared my skin this time . now all I have left is a few hyperpigmentation marks, I have been using banana boats aloe vera gel and it really seems to be easing the redness. Today, I picked up "Aloe Life 99% Pure Aloe Vera gel" I have heard nothing but positive about how it works wonders for healing post acne red marks/hyperpigmentation, and wanted to start using it instead of the banana boat because

    Day 110

    Sunday July 10th, Day 110. Skin has cleared up nicely. Seems there is no more active acne appearing, and this is a great feeling as I really feel that i'm slowly gaining my confidence back. Going to Ulta tomorrow to find a good tinted moisturizer that can even up my complexion, provide sunblock and cover up any red marks.
  3. This morning, I went to pickup my refill of my 4th month of 80mg accutane, they had both boxes sitting on the shelf right in front of me. But the pharmacist said one of them had been opened and they under law cannot give me one box. I took my last pill I had last night! I was so mad that the medicine I needed was sitting right in front of me and they couldn't give me even one packet to hold me over until they reordered. I called my doctor and he said I have enough accutane in my system that it i

    Day 89

    Monday, June 20th. Day 89 of course 2. Skin has significantly cleared up, only a couple bumps appearing here and there, but I know it's the accutane "pushing out" whatever's remaining. Just redness (hyper pigmentation) to deal with, trying to find some type of tinting lotion that can even out my complex. Classes start in a week! Excited. I really pray I'm confident and have clear skin by the time I move to Atlanta to attend college.. Life's hard, but you gotta keep your head up and push through
  5. Hey everyone. So I'm in my 3rd month of my second course of accutane, and so far so good. I have a few hyper pigmentation marks that are remaining on my skin and I'm looking for a good tinted moisturizer with SPF that I can use every morning to even out my complexion and provide sun block. After doing some research I came across a sun block from Murad, their "oil free sun-block sheer tint". It received great reviews on multiple websites and I am just wondering if anyone has ever used it before?

    Day 34

    Day 34 on my Second Course. Im Dealing ok with the side effects because i'm used to them from my first course. still at 80mg a day, and it makes me nervous cause I really have no idea what 2 years of this medicine could possibly be doing to me health wise. I pray that this is the final time I have to take Accutane, and pray it does the job. If it doesn't, I don't know whats going to happen with my life. I don't know how I continue day to day living in this constant depression and fear with this
  7. I think you should stop taking everything, and let accutane do its job. My IB was in the middle of first month. Deep cysts acne that broke and bleed (pretty bad). So its okay, and everyones skin is different. Good Luck. Sounds good, thanks!
  8. Hey everyone, Wednesday I Started my second course of Accutane. I ended the first course in September 10', it cleared me up but certainly did not finish the job. I'm taking 80mg a day, and so far i'm going on day 6 and although I haven't gotten any side effects just yet except slightly dry lips, my skin has started to breakout. my questions are: 1) is it normal to breakout with the painful bumps when only on day 6? 2) I take 2500mg of Evening Primrose Oil everyday. Is it ok to keep taking it whi

  11. Hey Everyone, I'm almost 5 months post accutane. Monday i have a checkup appointment with my dermatologist. but before i go and ask him myself, i was wondering what is the best recommended post accutane procedure to help benefit my skin even more after accutane without doing any damage? Ive read about these 3 and was wondering everyones opinions. 1) Co2 Laser Skin Resurfacing 2) Light Chemical Peel 3) Microdermabrasion Any help would be greatly appreciated P.s. I have a trip to ny planned for
  12. Hi everyone, I'm now 2 months off accutane and other than the occasional blemish here and there I am very satisfied with the results. I'm now trying to rid the leftover hyper pigmentation marks. I know that time is the biggest factor in healing them, but I've been told there are lotions that help brighten the marks. My question is.. What is the best recommended lotion or cream to help vanish hyper pigmentation marking leftover from acne? Thanks!
  13. Hey everyone, I recently just finished a 6 month course of accutane. And like most people who have taken accutane, i have left over red marks. I know accutane takes more time for those to heal, but for the time being can anyone recommend a really good tinted moisturizer that can cover these up when i go out? im going to New York in 2 weeks and am trying my hardest to rid these marks. If anyone could help me out it'd be much appreciated. Thanks!
  14. Hey everyone, I've been on accutane for 116 days now, and so far my skin has changed drastically for the better. I have a trip to ny planned for July 15th, and by that point ill be on day 135. I was wondering at what day of accutane do you usually see its great results on the skin? i'm hoping to be completely clear by then. Also, are there any treatments that can be done to help the accutane process? (chemical peels,etc..) Thanks!
