    One month recap

    So I checked in with my dermatologist today and he upped my dosage of Clavaris to 30mg twice a day. All in all this was a good month, I've definitely noticed my skin has been smoother and I'm getting a little less acne. Hopefully during this month I stop getting acne altogether but I know it's a 6 month process so I'm not sure when it's going to stop. My left cheek has no actives at all which is amazing but I do have scarring and two ugly scabs. My right cheek is still looking messy. I have a la

    Week three recap

    I've almost finished my first month and it's pretty exciting actually. I feel like I'm handling the dryness well, I'm still dealing with the cold which absolutely sucks. My pink eye is gone but I have like a broken blood vessel which we do think is accutane related not pink eye related. Sadly I lost my Burt's bees chapstick so I've learned that all of my chapsticks I used to love downright suck. I love EOS and blistex but they do nothing for the dryness. Also because I've had such a bad cold and

    Side effects!!!

    So it hasn't been three weeks quite yet but I wanted to update. So accutane really does make your immune system absolutely suck. For the past few days I've felt kinda gross but yesterday it hit me like a truck. Honestly I've been pushing aside my cold thinking it was mostly accutane related. My red eyes I just thought it was my contacts and I shouldn't be wearing them so I wore them for a shorter amount of time. My sore throat I thought it was just dry because accutane dries you out like CRAZY.

    Week 2 recap

    So this is a pretty late week two recap mostly because I just have no clue what the days are anymore because I don't have classes over the holidays lol. Anyway my skin hasn't changed much since two days ago which would have marked end of week two. The dryness really isn't bothering me at all lately, I got a new moisturizer which is absolutely heavenly and the only dryness I've been dealing with is around my nose and lips. I've been using otc excema cream around my nose and regular Burt's bees ch

    Week 1 recap

    Ok so it has been a week since I started and everything everyone has said about the first week is true. My skin isn't way too flaky, definitely my nose and a little of the insides of my cheeks but it's not drastic. My lips won't stop chapping but blistex has been so helpful for me. By the end of the day though my lips just feel covered in chapstick and still dry but it feels amazing to put on chapstick. Honestly I might need a new chapstick. My acne though, well anything that would have formed i

    Day 5

    My skin has started to get pretty tight and my nose is getting flakier each day. My skin is still pretty oily but now that it's getting dry it feels weird to put on extra moisturizer. Also all my current acne is PAINFUL even if they were just little white heads, and everything in my skin that would have formed eventually is forming at the exact same time. So I'm dry oily and breaking out. I was told to expect an initial breakout so I wasn't surprised when these guys started to pop upon my face b

    Day 2

    Ok so technically day 2 is day 3 and day 1 was the morning after I took the first pill but whatever. I was not expecting it to affect me this fast. My skin hasn't started to change any which isn't a surprise but I am DRY. I heavily moisturerize normally anyway but after I showered today my nose was definitely a little flaky on one side but my eyes and the inside of my nose are super dry. I'm going without contacts today so my contacts don't fall out from being too dry. I'm taking 30mg of claravi

    Day 1

    I went to the dermatologist yesterday and after fighting insurance I was finally able to start accutane. The brand I'm using is Clara is, which seems to be a very common brand of isotretinoin. Clearly nothing has changed yet but it's my first day so this is what my skin looks like before accutane. I've never had several acne, only moderate acne but because of its persistance for 7 years my dermatologist finally recommended this for me and I'm SO excitedI was told to stop using "harsh" acne
