  1. Hey everyone, i made a blog but i thought just making a question in a forum would be easier. Here my blog (From start to week 2) WEEK 3 (21 Days) I am still getting new spots more or less everyday or every second day so i guess im still going through the initial breakout, hopefully this will stop at week 5 or sooner because it is my birthday (woo) then and it would be great if it did. At the start i was drinking a lot of milk and other dairy products to try and get the "high fat"
  2. Hi! I'm hoping to be starting Roaccutane very soon, and was wondering that when it comes to dry lips, what do you peeps think is best; Vaseline or Aquaphor? I'm in the UK and I think that I'd have to buy aquaphor online (unless anyone can recommend somewhere that sells it?). Is it worth doing this or is Vaseline just as good for dry accutane lips? Thanks, any inputs would be much appreciated
  3. Hey everyone!!I've had moderate acne for the past 4 years and after endless medications and prescriptions I have built up the courage to go on Accutane! I've read so so many threads and logs and so many people have had great results! For the past 3 months this summer my acne took a turn for the worst after I got bronchitis and had to take a lot of medication (i thought antibiotics would help me??). Anyway, I've been even more depressed than usual and I barely leave the house so I don't pigment m
  4. Hello fellow acne sufferers, I have been on Duac(benzoyl peroxide + clindamycin) and retin a micro .04 % now for over a year, and my skin is so oily, yet so flaky. I am trying to cure my flakiness. I am currently using cetaphil moisturizer, but it is not doing enough. Here are my options: -jojoba oil -Cetaphil moisturizing cream -aquaphor -cerave pm moisturizer what are your thoughts?

    Accutane Journey - 1 Month

    So, I am 4 weeks and 1 day into my Accutane journey. Haven't experienced anything too horrible so far. My skin was slightly worse than usual last weekend, but nothing to hide out at home all day about. My family and dermatologist have told me that my skin is already looking better this week, so perhaps there is some improvement. Maybe I'm too critical to notice the overall and still see the small imperfections. Oh well. This past week I visited the dermatologist for my 1 month check in. My hepat
  6. And the winner is Bag Balm!! I caved a bought a green tin of Bag Balm from Walgreens and boy does that stuff WORK! Don't get me wrong, Aquaphor is awesome too, Bag Balm is just a little better. Here's the rundown... Aquaphor: - helps dry lips a lot - needs to be reapplied more often than Bag Balm - a lot more expensive (around $3 per ounce) - main ingredient is petroleum (this stuff is vaseline on steroids) - smells better Bag Balm: - smells really bad if you're not used to it (a m
  7. Long story short, I was on miocycline for three years and it worked in the beginning but it started to get weaker. I started getting purple marks on my calves and my gums were darkening but my dermatoligist was negligent and didnt say anything about them so I thought nothing of it for a year while I had that. I switched derms and she said that I needed to get off of the antibiotic ASAP and that thank goodness she caught it early; those side effects were a result of the antibiotics building up in
  8. My lips are drying out! It's starting to feel uncomfortable when I don't put anything on my lips. That's the only legit side effect I have so far Also, should I buy Aquaphor or Bag Balm? I already have a mini sample of Aquaphor but I've heard great things about both. What worries me is the fact that Aquaphor's main ingredient is petroleum and mineral oil. Someone told me that petroleum dries out the lips even more in the long run. Basically it just coats the lips but doesn't really moisturize.

    Week 2

    Hey everyone, The dry lips are coming on strong now, i'm using Vaseline and aquaphor lip treatment which works very well, i still have to apply it a lot throughout the day. My oily skin has basically vanished, i am now just using Cetaphil gentle cleanser once on the night and it seems to be doing the job. Still getting the odd new spot here and there but they seem to go away ALOT quicker than before. Some parts of my face are starting to flake so i have ordered the Aquaphor soothing skin

    2Nd Course Of Accutane (Day 27)

    1st month: 60mg/day I went to get my blood work done today, i hope it comes okay considering i have been drinking these days, 4-6 beers/ week. I just couldn't help it; friends, it's the holidays, several dates, i haven't told anyone yet that i'm on Accutane. Gonna go cold turkey on alcohol after Thanksgiving. I currently have two cysts, and one regular pimple on my face. One cyst refuses to go away, it's dark and unpopable for some reason and it's been there for like a week and the other

    Day 20. Jojoba Oil

    Almost One month on Accutane! Yay!!! So far everything has stayed the same for me, my lips are still dry, I have some dry patches on the back of my hands, and I produce absolutely no oil! My skin had been looked amazing the past few days but on day 17 I got an under the skin pimple on my left cheek bone and a small pimple on the right side of my face. I think this happened because I did skip a day of Accutane and didn't wash my face that day ( ewwww I know). Sometimes you just get crazy busy wit
  12. Hey everybody, I am currently about halfway through my third month on Accutane. I have been through many of the common struggles with this drug and I would like to share my fixes to each problem! Dry lips-Carmex Lip Balm, Aquaphor, As many people who are on accutane know, aquaphor is a lifesaver. I use it every night before bed, but it is quite awkward to use it out in public. I use Carmex in public and it works just as great! Dry skin (Body)- Curél Itch Defense I suddenly got tons of it

    Dry Lip Treatments

    This is my second round of accutane. I'm just beginning week 3. HATE the dry lips more than anything, but I think I found a really great combination--lip scrub from LUSH followed by Aquaphor. I use the lips scrub in the shower. It's all natural with oils to hydrate, as well. Check out LUSH online if there isn't a store near you. Aquaphor is at Walmart or drug stores.
  14. I've had acne pretty bad and consistently over the years since I was about 12. I'm 26 now, and the severity has gone up and down. I've tried most common applications for acne, like benzoyl, salicylic acid, proactive, anti-biotics, birth control and about anything you can find on the shelf, cleansers or natural. For the past week I have simplIfied my routine to consisting of washing with water only at night, applying aquaphor and leaving it on over night, then removing it with cetaphil and a wa

    Week 1

    It has been one week since I started my medication. I am prescribed 30mg once a day for 2 weeks, and then twice a day after. So far so good. Nothing is drying out as of yet. As directed, I apply a quarter size of aquaphor on my face before bed (feels so gross) and I apply it on my lips as often as possible. I hope that by keeping my skin hydrated from the start, I'll never have to experience the drying side effects. I have noticed that I am a lot more tired throughout the day. I am not sur
  16. This is when my lips began to peel Hi! Im on a week and a day of accutane (generic brand)... and the first layer of my lips just peeled off ! Like completely... my lips are BLOOD BRIGHT RED and swollen... I feel like this is even worse than super dry chapped lips? I have tried a million chapsticks Dr dans.. everything. My derm even prescribed me 2% cortisone.. but I think he thought my lips were dry because they aren’t flaky or peeling anymore they are just super uncomfortable and it’s h
  17. Hey everyone -- Does anyone on accutane have any recommendations for spot treatment? I'm on Claravis 20 mg and so far I've been using aczone *LIGHTLY* only on problem spots to avoid drying out my skin too much. Also, would you recommend Aquaphor or Neosporin on popped pimples? Which one heals them quicker? I know that aquaphor is more moisturizing, but neosporin kills the bacteria. Any advice would be great

    1 Month Down! Day 32.

    Hey everyone, this post is gonna be a little bit shorter because I am gong to the dermatologist in 3 days so I will update everyone more after my visit with her. I will also be uploading a picture of my progress after being on 40mg for one month. So far I am so happy with the results and I can't wait to show you all how my skin is looking! This week I experienced a few nose bleeds but they were very light and short, lasted a total of maybe 45 seconds, I also have noticed that my arms are very d
  19. Hello people on this website. If you havent read my blogs last month i was ready for accutane and now im officially on it . DAY NUMERO UNO1.... many more days to go. nothing to say much.
