  1. Does Accutane actually work? Take the journey with me
  2. From the album: Accutane Skin Journey

    It's been 5 years and looking back at my Accutane journey... I really went through hell. All the symptoms that came with Accutane were horrible!!! Is it weird that I used to be lactose intolerant and as soon as I finished Accutane I could eat as much as I want? Anyways, Accutane changed my life. I love my skin and it's great not have cystic acne. Message me if you have any questions!!! Love, KB

    Still got good skin! No foundation on either
  4. yeah, definitely be careful with Accutane. I did feel down when I was on it but not too much. Just keep a positive attitude when you're on it. Goodluck!
  5. I had such a good experience with Accutane! I'm 5'1", 120lbs, Vietnamese Cyst acne. Start Accutane January 2009 First month 10 mg: bad break out. Second Month 40 mg: Very dry lips and bad break out. Third - Six Month 40 mg and 80 mg : Bad symptoms. Everything! Finished July 2009 See my blog and my photos!
  6. I'm not on bcp. I went to the doctor and he was flustered too. I think it just might be mother nature messing with me. booo thanks for the help though
  7. I'm on my 6th Month of accutane and my period has always been normal until now! I'm worried there might be something wrong with my liver or maybe something else. It's been a week and a half and my period has never been this long before, even before accutane! What do I do?
  8. Thanks so much! All these photo are for all of us I get moments when I lose hope but looking back from where I used to look like... it's amazing how Accutane really works!

    there aren't a lot of bumps but its still quite red.
  10. I'm on accutane and my arms are very very very dry. Its weird and it sucks!! My left shoulder is the worst. It's peeling like I have a sunburn. Does anyone recommend any good body lotions?
  11. I took asprin but I;m not sure if you're suppose to. Lots of water and sleep.

    Day 2

    This was only day 2 hahaha. I'm not a very patient person so I thought there would be an instant. I've realized now that it takes a lot of time. Sigh...
  13. Heehehee I don't know how I'm beautiful in this picture but thanks so much for the complement! I need all the love I can get at this point.
  14. Thanks! Okay, I'll try to be patient. Can't wait for the 3rd month now!
  15. Hey long lost vietnamese brother. Thanks for the encouragement. It's so nice to know that someone is in the same boat as me or was. I just hoping I won't be the rare cases where accutane doesn't work. I got a question... does all of those supplements help the skin as well?

    Eek! It's embarrassing to put this one up but I'm doing this just to let everyone who has bad acne like me that you're not alone! <3 2nd month on Accutane

    I guess this is the first breakout. My skin likes to freak out once in a while. It makes me sad.
  18. Wow, I didn't know that other people used Turmeric too. I used to drink add a little bit of water and a teaspoon of turmeric powder and chug it down. Its an awful taste. I drank it for my health but didn't know it could benefit my skin! Maybe I should start again. So how do you make the paste again? Does anyone know if it's bad to take it when you're on Accutane?

    Day 2

    Thanks Giselle! You are too!
  20. I've been using the tea tree oil night lotion stuff for a couple of weeks now and haven't seen any major improvements yet but I can see that it is slowly fading. I like the lotion and it doesn't make my skin break out.
  21. I love the vaseline jelly! I use it mostly for my lips but whenever I get a really dry spot on my face I use it at night. Yeah, it feels greasy, but I agree that it doesn't clog pores. I guess its the greasy part that makes it feel like it is clogging pores
  22. I don't really know if your sleeping position really matters because I can only get to sleep if I sleep on my back and I still have acne. How I trained myself was to surround myself with pillows (make a barrier I guess) and wrap my body blanket tight around my body. I did that for a long while and then got the hang of it. Good luck
