  1. goood luck with tane ..hopefully clear skin is on the way :)

    1. Soooo, my month one of accutane is done! 4 more to go. I just wanted to update with some pictures. other than that everything is good. here they are. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v641/you...own/Photo76.jpg http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v641/you...own/Photo82.jpg hope everyone else is doing well on their courses!
    2. Thanks me too! tomorrow is my 1 month on it and I will post new pictures. Coronado... nice. Are you on accutane now too? (my skin has gotten so much better by the way!) I live by state, and my derm's name is helene jolly. I like her a lot, but unfortunately she just went on maternity leave! so I don't get to see her for the next 2 months. =(
    3. Day 21 I don't have anything new to report. Not really anyway. My skin has been getting it's oil back so I haven't needed to moisturize every couple hours like I did at first. My skin just seems to be how it normally is, with just a few pimples here and there, one or 2 big ones that stick out like a sore thumb. I have had a couple nosebleeds, but I don't think it's due to accutane. My nose tends to bleed when I get too hot. My skin almost completely stopped peeling, maybe I can wear make up aga
    4. Day 12 It's been a little while. I'm a pretty busy girl, with not too much new news to report. Let's see. My face is super dry. Like I have to moisturize every couple of hours. And my ear started peeling too! Gross! So now I get to put lotion on my ears as well. I think I need a longer lasting moisturizer. I'm currently using cetaphil daily lotion or something, for sensitive dry skin. I've decided to just go makeup-less for probably the rest of my treatment, with the exception of maybe a fe
    5. Omg that's crazy! ha I can't believe that lady just took your stuff out and wanted to put hers in. Wow. I'm amazed. I would've been too nice to ask her to leave me alone as well.. but maybe now that I'm on accutane I will have the balls to say something because everything is irritating me as of yesterday. Hahaha. Oh man.
    6. Day 6 So today I woke up and my lips were dry and my face was dry, and yeah. I've been irritable all day! I'm not sure if it's due to the accutane or not, but I've noticed that little things are upsetting me, and I'm usually so carefree and like eh whatever. I'm a very chill kind of person. I'm going to turn into superbitch at work. Hahahaha. Oh well at least I have an excuse. My scalp has been itching today too. I feel all stupid in class scratching my head. It's like a little kid who has lice
    7. oh sweet, where do you work, borders? Did you know that starbucks owns seattles best? I'm happy it stopped raining, but it's supposed to rain all weekend. Do you go snowboarding in mammoth? I have mammoth mtn sweatpants on right now, haha but i've never been there. I'm going to big bear this weekend, I'm stoked. It's only my 4th time out, but last time we went after this huge snowstorm and big bear had 3-4 ft of new snow. And I finally figured out how to transfer my weight from my heel e
    8. Hey check out the accutane logs section of this board. It's pretty neat. I just started it too. But reading the logs and seeing everyones improvement is awesome. You probably just got your initial breakout. I think I'm starting to get mine too. But after that your skin will start to clear up. Don't worry if you stay positive, everything will come out okay in the end.
    9. Good luck! I'm 110lbs too but I'm only on 60 a day for 5 months. I'm hoping this works for me as well... Although my facial acne isn't too bad, sometimes the acne on my back is so bad that one time my doctor though I had an infection. Although I can say I've seen worse pictures on the internet. Let me know if you get any crazy side effects. I'm on day 5.
    10. Good luck with everything! i hope the accutane works for you! Laser treatments? Sounds painful! I'm thinking of buying a special bag to stick in my purse to carry around my accutane survival kit. I want to label it too! hahah I'm weird. How many mgs are you taking a day?
    11. Yes it DOES feel great now that I've started accutane! i just see everyone else's results and CAN'T WAIT till my skin looks like theirs too! I think it's a little strange that my derm started me at 60mg a day, being that I'm only 5ft 1 and 110 lbs. I feel like everyone else starts out much lower! Oh well, maybe I can get it done quicker? haha Anyway, I use Lancome Teint Idole Ultra, I like it, but it's 40 dollars a bottle.. I mean it's not that bad considering it lasts me about 6 months. But
    12. I'm on day 5, and the only side effect I have is dry lips. I'm excited for clear skin though! Haven't had any accutane related headaches but I have been drinking plenty of water. I also have had dry eyes.
    13. you are 2 days ahead of me in your accutane journey, and my favorite color is purple too! Yay! Any new updates?
