  1. it is possible to cover it up.. that's what i have been "deceiving" everyone with for months, apart from my family and boyfriend.. i use everyday minerals matte formulation. and it covers like a miracle when i keep layering it. i dont buffer it in, i just stipple.....and it covers my red marks perfectly even in the bright sun. (what i do is i do my makeup by the window, so i know how i'll look like when im out in natural light, instead of floroscent light) OH, UNLESS I DRINK. I TEND TO GET RED
  2. it's genetic probably i've been having it forever since i was young... it could also be the bp that's thinning our skin that's why the blood vesesels are easily "seen" by blushing! exercise!! i love the flush that stays for a few days after a good day of high-lo cardio workout!
  3. hey there!! woah your really tall!! actually i guess it doesn;t really matter if its taken in the day or night, correct me if im wrong... but im currently on my 6month of accutane! everything is going great! my red marks have def. faded about 70% now!! as for blackheads, id suggest putting bp on it? just a thin layer at night before u slp. and in the morning put moisturiser on it so it balances the drying effect off! good luck!
  4. heya all! i'm on my 6month of accutane at 20mg/day, low dose, and Id like to find out if i can drink a glass of freshly squeezed apple juice (2apples) a day in the morning while i take my accutane about an hr after? will that be too much on my liver? thanks aLL!
  5. i understand what your growing through... with anyone that has active acne, everything becomes "obsessive" actually. and everything suddenly shifts into focus and we start blaming everything... if you have like different seasons of up and down acne, with acne being CYSTIC in nature, leaving dark marks, i would suggest you go on accutane on a low dose. it totally helped mine, i am at 20mg/day and on my 6month, and ive been pretty much clear, leaving my red marks being able to heal, like FINALLY
  6. hi ive got these bumps all over my wrist area too. when i moisturiser it goes away. hwever when i stop it comes back... im terrified of dealing with this forever... will it?
  7. i have the exact same rash! 3 months into accutane! my gosh.. when i moisturise, it goes away. if i stop, it comes back. im wondering do i have to moisturiser my arms for the rest of my life? scary thought.
  8. what happened to this thread? it just died?
  9. your very lucky to have a gf like that. when i had a bf, and i slept over at his house and stuff, i always had to sleep on with makeup cos i didnt knw how to facehim with my face of acne. although he tld me he preferred me without anymakeup on. i totally get what u mean... since its definately the hormnes, you should talk to ur doctor abt it. as with dealing with it, i can tell you that just keep thinking positive. sooner or later our hormones will self-adjust and it will all go away. for now
  10. hey i know how you feel! i have all these all over my cheeks as well, and people look at me like im hideous. when i put on makeup ppl say im cute, what a load of bull superficial people. but itll fade, but itll take VERY longto fade. lasting from a year to year-and a half. sigh.
  11. update! day 34. the acne cyst grew really huge so i went for my first cortisone shot yesterday. i can say that today, the cyst is completely flat with a purplish mark. well , other red marks seem to be so much lighter compared to this darkened beast lol.
  12. taking accutane after food, like wait 20-30mins after ur meal, will usually enhance the absorption of accutane into ur blood stream
  13. fast update! im kinda sad now... i woke up with like one baby cyst smack in the middle of my cheeks. ON top of a already recovering red-mark left over from old cyst. sigh... looks like tt spot's gonna take really long to heal. =/ well, at least, there's some goodnews. FOR GIRLS: those taking accutane, great news! when i apply makeup, it goes on so smooth, doesnt get oily even after 12hours, STILL MATTE AS HELL (!! I KNOW OMG) and, i dont even need to apply an eyeshadow primer anymore. i mean,
  14. hey! @deejo: 9months if im not wrong. on 15mg/day. the max i can bear is 20mg. because my lips are already cracking/bleeding like crazy and my eyes are constantly dry (i sleep in air-conditioned room), so from what i've researched and heard: lower dose = longer course. side effects are not so strong, so it's up to you really. for my body weight and height, (im only 40kg) , so if i go on higher doses i think those would probably make me very moody and depressed as well. for the acne coming ba
  15. hi! im on a much lower dose 15mg/day and my lips are already peeling like crazy, my blackheads are also on showing... on day 25. good luck on urs!
  16. quick update! its day 24 now. after i finish myday 30 i will up my dose to 15mg /day. already went to them derm to stock up on another months supply! well, it looks like the effect of 'tane is really kicking in right now. my skin is visibly dryer. im on a really low dose but it still seems to control the oil very well. ive also been gg for IPL every 3 wks so my skin is vryvery smooth and soft. red marks still seem very red though. about the Initial breakout. the breakout period is really shor
  17. alright. so some updates. today is day21. my skin is noticably matte, lips are seriously cracked up and bleeding. no white petroleum will help my lips now. IB has slowed down, last week was terrible. 4/5 of them popped out from nowhere. so right now its all calming down. hopefully it stays this way.
  18. Hi everyone! So, I've decided to get some results first before posting my first log. I didnt want to make you guys come into here and then leave without nothing! So a little short intro. used to severe moderate cystic acne, and then after year the battle was on and off, and it seemed like there was no end to these things popping up on my face. i was getting so deppressed, not getting out of the house, not wanting to meet anyone, exercise even. cos i wouldnt dare to bare my face out in public.
  19. heya! good luck yeah? im on my 8th day of accutane at a very very low dose of 10mg/per day. im starting to break out in small pimples. so far 2. hopefully they dnt get big. i used to have cystic acne on my face, but now so far no cysts at all. thankfully! good luck on ur back! and dont pop em pls! if u dont touch them chances are they wont leave any scabs at all. or marks even.
  20. hi im currently on 10mg/per day. 7th day. only one pimple (small) came up. hope it doesnt get fullblown and become deep. skin till tad oily only, oilier when i put on makeup.
  21. hi, i'm just putting in my two cents here. i dont think acneisreallylame should take accutane, any forms of antibiotics, because although it may clear you up for a while, once you stop, it'll come back. it merely supresses the symptoms of acne and does not actually deal with the cause. i agree with the fact that nutrition and health, exercise, and SLEEP is veryvery important. you dont need antibiotics just for a few active acne. i mean, antibiotics kills all sorts of bacteria, including the
  22. so how any updates? i wanna take this as well, but i need more info. so zinc supplements, to take with fishoil (as it is a cofactor), or not?
