  1. Hi everyone, I have officially completed month 3 of accutane, which means I am halfway through the process! I am honestly so happy with the results so far. My skin is the smoothest its ever been and there are no signs of cystic acne at all. The only thing that is bothering me that I'd like to try to fix are my acne scars. I'm super pale so I have red-ish marks on my face, especially my cheeks. Are there any products that you guys recommend that could help?? Thank you!! Sincerely
  2. Good afternoon everyone, Today is day 46 of me being on Accutane. In my last post, I mention that I was going through the purging period/ initial breakout phase and I am happy to announce that it is over!! It lasted for about 2 weeks and now my skin is definitely clearing up. As of recently, I noticed I have been really tired all the time. It's hard for me to get up in the morning and the days I wake up earlier, around 7/8am, I am ready for bed at like 6pm. That is totally unusual for
  3. Hello acne.org fam, Today is day 34 and this week I have been experiencing new results. Right now, it is the beginning of my 2nd month and until recently, my skin continued to clear up with each day that passed. This week, however, things have changed for me -- the "purging period"/ "IB" Initial Breakout has began. After going through the first month with no crazy breakouts I totally thought I was in the clear for this!! But now that the time has come I would like to share with you all how
  4. Good evening everyone, It has been about two weeks since my last post, and since then, I definitely have updates for you. As far as my products go, I have been using the same exact ones mentioned in my previous posts (please scroll down below if you are interested). They have all been working perfectly to the point where some days I could almost skip moisturizing. That is a dream compared to my first week on Accutane lol. My skin feels a little dry but totally normal for the most part. I am s
  5. Hi Gimozzi, I don't know all that much about TCA treatments, but I know about another treatment that may be helpful. A close friend of mine had severe acne and she went on two rounds of Accutane like you are doing. Once her acne completely cleared, she still had a lot of scarring left behind, so she got some kind of laser treatment/peel done about 2 or 3 times and now her skin is completely smooth with 0 scarring and has been for years!! Once you complete the round of Accutane maybe this could
  6. Hey guys, It's officially the end of my 11th day on Accutane and my skin finally looks and feels completely normal (as far as redness and dryness goes) from continuous use of the Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream. Today was the first day that I tried wearing makeup while having drier skin on Accutane and I am so happy to say that it was a success! Before taking this medication, my skin was super oily so I was worried about how putting on makeup would go with much drier skin. Being that the Cetaphil
  7. Good evening everyone, It is now the end of Day 10, and being that I started this blog a little bit later than when I started I would like to update you guys on what has happened between day 1 and day 10 (today). Day 2 (morning after taking first Accutane pill): I took my first Accutane pill (30mg) on October 17th. When I woke up the next morning, I already woke up with less oily skin and mildly dry lips. I started using Aquaphor on my lips from Day 1. Day 4: My skin was slightly drier, bu
  8. Hi guys, My name is Natalia and I have been suffering with acne for about a decade. My acne started off mild, but got worse over the course of ten years. I began seeing a dermatologist when I was 14 years old, in hopes that there was something that they could give me that would help, and they did. However, this topical medicine's magic did not last for long. After using it for 6 months, my acne began to return. I was then given another topical to use. It worked at first, but the same pattern
  9. Right now I am 10 days in, and just within the past few days I have been feeling the same exact thing: SEVERE dry skin and dry lips. I've been using Aquaphor on my lips religiously, and that has seemed to be working well but as soon as the Aquaphor comes off they feel uncomfortable so I always have a layer on. Also, not sure which one you have but there are different kinds. There is one specifically made for lips in a little tube and then there is the bigger regular Aquaphor. The regular one is
