  1. I love ACV!!! I have been drinking it for months and I like the taste of it although it took some getting used to. I drink 1 tablespoon in water everyday. This might be a little too much info but since it has to do with acne I will share. I had a lot of digestion problems meaning I very rarley went to the bathroom which I now know can be really bad for your skin. Almost imediatly after starting to drink ACV two months ago my digestive problems disapeared and I was pretty amazed. My acne sk
  2. So I have been on Accutane for four months and my skin is much better. i am about to stop taking Accutane in about a week and I want to start taking some supplements to help maintain the results. I have been drinking ACV 1 tablespoon of ACV a day for over a month now. I have found it really helps with my digestive problems and so I am hooked. I just bought some Zinc tablets today. I was a little confused as to which kind to get as I have read so many different things and ppl seem to suggest a

  5. I was on Ortho Trycycline for years and it did nothing for my skin and it gave me really bad mood swings. I tried the Loestrin too and it made me break out and made me really really emotional. I really dont like BCP for this reason. Ive tried it at different times in my life and always get the same results. I wish they cleared my skin and didnt make me crazy but that is exactly what they do. I have been on Accutane for 4 months and was never on BCP. If you are having sex just be extra ext
  6. I am back in the US and still taking the Accutane I had left over from Shanghai but I am on a very low dose now. I am only taking 20mg a day and I only have about 20 days worth of pills left. My side effects have really decreased which is nice. My skin has been good iguess. I am clear for the most part but still get a couple of pimples when I get my period. I guess it is just always going to be that way. Overall I am happy with the results. Side Effects Chapped lips
  7. I read a lot of posts about ppl complaining about red marks so I thought I would post some suggestions of what has helped my red marks. When I get a pimple and it is poppable I will pop it. It always leaves a nasty red mark especially when on Accutane but if I take the proper steps afterwards the mark looks a lot better 4 days after and is completely gone 7-8 days after popping it. The first night after popping it I just let it be although I do put on my moisturizer which is neutrogena Healt
  8. I could care less about small zits near my eyebrow. I just dont want huge cysts on my chin/forehead anymore. Most people get small zits from time to time but that is not acne.
  9. I use Neutrogena moisturizer with AHA while on Accutane and no problems. Sometimes I put Cetephil Cream on if I am really dry but that hasnt happened for a while.
  10. Day 90 something The pimples on my skin are healing. I have also been drinking ACV which I have noticed has really helped with my digestion and I have read poor digestion is one possible cause of acne. I have been feeling super super anxious lately. I dont know if it is because of Accutane but I felt really anxious in my first month and then it went away but now it is back full force. I can deal with it but I hope it doesnt cause a breakout. My hair is doing a lot better. Love Jojoba oi
  11. It was incredibly easy for me to get Accutane here. I just made an appointment at an international hospital and suggested it to the doctor. He perscribed it for me right away. The Chinese brand of Accutane is called Sine.
  12. I am living in China and about 90% of Chinese woman walk around with umbellas on sunny days and since starting accutane I have started to do it too. I know it would look really silly to walk around with an umblella on a sunny day anywhere else but here it is normal. I even see men doing it sometimes too. If you dont mind looking strange you could try it.
  13. Ok I dont think it worked. Anyway. I have about five zits on my chin. Oh well three of them are healing and I will have to wait to see what the other two will do. I calculated my days wrong. Today is day 90 so I am just now starting month four. I forgot I went about ten days without pills after my first month. I hope month four will be the turning point. Hope everyone else is doing well. I hope Accutane is doing its thing.
  14. Trying to upload a picture of my chin. Dont know if it is going to work.
  15. I have been using the jojoba oil for five days now and it has improved my hair and scalp a lot. I need to keep doing it though because there is still build up on my scalp although most of it is gone. I have also been using ACV. Sometimes I will put it on my scalp and let it sit for a minute before washing it off. Other times I will put in the jojoba oil and let it sit for hours or overnight. My hair is so dry I sometimes put a lot of jojoba oil in from the scalp down to the ends and let it
