  1. Hi readers, I apologize for not updating in awhile, but I hadn't had much change to write about until now. I just entered my 4th month on Zenatane and have noticed a few new things. First off, my skin is about 99% clear right now! Its a wonderful feeling to be able to just walk outside without any makeup on and feel confident. I have noticed some minor scaring and a few very tiny ice pick marks but I am trying not to be too concerned about them because I know isotretenoin can make scars more

    4th week on Yasmin

    The first month is over (: It's my first day on my stop week after 21 pills. My skin is still the same, haven't noticed any major improvements of my blemishes. In the last 2 weeks I've only gotten a few big pimples on my forehead. On my cheeks are still the blemishes from my initial breakout. I'm starting today with a new skincare product, Paula's choice 2% BHA lotion. It claims to brighten up my post acne marks. Hopefully it will do his job. Overall it was a good first month and I hope my perio
  3. I have been struggling with acne since I was about 15. I'm almost 18 now and my acne just recently got so bad that I couldn't stand anyone seeing me without makeup. This is the worst my acne has ever been. I cry almost every night because I feel so disgusted when I look in the mirror, and I hate having to put so much makeup on just to feel like I can walk out the door. I recently discovered The Regimen through YouTube testimonies. I was so excited to hear about an acne treatment that I couldn't
  4. Okay so - I wanted to share some before pictures. This is when I had hit my breaking point... I would have seriously burned off my face if it meant a beautiful new one would magically appear. I had stopped going to the dermatologist because the one I was seeing wouldn't believe me when I said everything I was dealing with on my face was totally hormonal and none of the stuff I had was working. I had been seeing her for about a year and a half. LUCKILY I found someone else but anyway... here's th
  5. Hi everyone, So over the past few days I got probably 5 to 10 new zits that were on my cheeks. They were all pretty small, but I was worried that my IB was starting. But when I looked in the mirror this afternoon, my face was not nearly as bad as I thought it was. So, I think that some of the zits that I got just went away because they were so small. Still, not really experiencing any intense dryness. I obviously do have some dryness but it's not bad enough for me to be using mois
  6. I almost forgot to post this, but then I remembered, TWO MONTHS! YAY!!! So, two months on Roaccutane. Hopefully it's going to be uphill from here on out. You'd be surprised to know that I finally got my script sent out, but it's the WRONG DAMN SCRIPT. So it will probably be another 6-10 years before the correct one will arrive. So, I'm still on 60mg. My skin isn't looking too bad at the moment. It is definitely smoother, for sure. I'm very, very dry all over my body though. My arms, my
  7. SIXSIXSIXSIXSIXSIX. Okay, okay. So currently on 60mg a day. I was meant to be bumped up 10mg but my derms handwriting is so illegible that the script got lost in the mail. What is with health specialist and their crappy handwriting? Hello, I'm paying you $145 a visit, can you at least make it possible for a piece of paper to get to me? Anyway, my skin's kind of meh. I've had about 5 breakouts come up this week, and all of the have been on the right side of my face. It sucks. My lips have be
  8. Do you remember that course on Mario Kart called "Wario Stadium" where all throughout the track, you were faced with massive bumps to ride over? Well that's my face. Not only are there bumps everywhere, but if they were just the slightest bit bigger, I swear a car actually could drive over them. So week two on Oratane/Roaccutane. Probably one of the hardest weeks with my skin I've had to face in a long time. I'm guessing week three with be much of the same. In my last post, I asked whether p
  9. My dosage has been upped to 60 mg per day, so two 30 mg tablets each day! I'm super excited to up my dosage because I just want to get better as soon as possible! My skin is still dry and my lips still chapped, but other than that not really noticing any other side effects. Excited to see what 60 mg will bring! Not so many pimples are popping up as well, which is making me notice my scars a whole lot more. So that sucks, but hey, hopefully new ones will stop forming! Does anyone know good s
  10. Hi guys so I'm really enjoying this idea of me blogging everyday on my skin, its very relaxing for me and its a nice way for me to unwind at the end of the day! Progress: So today I woke up and it was my time of the month, sorry if this is TMI but I thought I'd add it becayse usually around this time I'd get a few more breakouts. I surprisingly didn't have a huge pimple anywhere, but i did notice a 2 or 3 tiny pimples on my forehead but theyre tiny, barely noticeable Also the big under the sk
  11. Updates! My skin has been doing great and I've been picking less! I think I picked two times within the week.. and it was the same spot haha, didn't do much damage I've really kicked the habit of gluing myself to the mirror and killing my skin. I just got a renewal on my minocycline prescription but my derm said that they ran out of duac samples! D: so I might be getting the BP and the clindamycin separately within the next week..... I cant wait for that! As for pimples, I got one on my rig

    Day 11

    Day 11, oddly enough my side effects seem to have improved rather than gotten worse? Has this happened to anyone else? This worries me. My dry eyes that were terrible just 2 days ago are now manageable, my dry nose is barely bothering me at all and my dry lips are mild compared to what they were 2 days ago. I know I should probably be extrememly happy but i'm more concerned that it isn't working as well? As far as acne goes I've gotten another little white head on my jaw line... nothing ma
  13. My first week is finally over! I feel like I've made huge progress. I'm uploading comparison pictures, but it seems that they have to be approved before I can display them, so they'll be coming eventually. I've been sticking to my routine of washing and doing my regimen in the morning, going about my day, doing a workout and then showering at night and doing my nighttime regimen. I've also been consistently consuming more water. I've put together a pitcher in my fridge just for water, so I can s
  14. I spent the first few minutes of the new year crying. Yup, I sobbed because my skin was not what I wanted it to be before the new year hit. I decided not to wear makeup that day, and the harsh reality of my acne just teared me apart. I whimpered along my cousins shoulder, and hugged after talking to her about my self esteem issues. With much encouragement, she advised I move on and keep on finding something that can help me out without going to see a dermatologist. I tried my best and looked up
  15. From the album: Acne.org Regimen Results

    I wasn't going to post these pictures because it's embarrassing to see just how bad my skin used to be!!! However, I figured someone could benefit from my struggle. I've struggled with acne for the last 10 years. I've tried changing my diet, prescription meds, Proactiv, Murad, Clean & Clear, Neutrogena, all-natural face washes, masks, scrubs, etc. YOU NAME IT, I'VE TRIED IT!!!! I even tried to cover it with makeup. But no matter how much concealer you use, there's just no covering a bumpy su

    From the album: Acne Progression - Holistic Treatment - Dietary Change

    My diet wasn't always as consistent as it should have been... I wasn't really aware of gluten back then, which I started to avoid only a few months later. overall my acne looked okay, wasn't happy with it at all. I set myself the deadline of December 2014 to get rid of my acne for good, so I was definitely committed to keep on with the good work!

    Week 4

    From the album: AHA & Retinol

    One month has gone by and I'm seeing some progress here and there! I'm changing my regimen slightly, as mentioned in my blog, and hope to see continuing success and good results.
  18. From the album: Results after 3 months

    Hi, everyone, I've been on the regimen for 3 months now and here is my progress. I don't have any photos before I started the regimen.
  19. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NAD0DEUw520 I was on 40mg a day for the entire 6 months! I had no side effects other than the dryness but I did keep a very healthy lifestyle while taking it! Nothing else worked for me but this, it was the best decision I ever made probably.
  20. How's it going everybody? I'm choosing not to share any personal information, but I am a 21 year old male college student starting what I think will be a five month course of prescription accutane, specifically Myorisan. For a little bit of background: Throughout high school I had very, very light acne. We're talking one or two pimples every now and again. I did absolutely nothing to my face and never even thought about it. Towards the end of my senior year and starting with my freshman
  21. Hey guys, im starting my accutane and wanted to let you guys know how it goes! Im a 15 y/o male thats 6'1 155. I started getting Acne when i was about 12 (yes) and it has progressed since then. Currently i have acne on my Chin, Forehead, and Back. I am on 40mg claravis a day (the exact same thing as accutane, except just a generic brand, so don't worry) lol Acne was getting sort of terrible for me being an athlete and such, almost always having sweat or oil on my face and it started suckin
  22. I have a 4 day time gap between the day I run out of pills and my next doctor check up/refill. Will this complicate or ruin my progress?
  23. Hey guys, Hello, hi. I'm about to start my fifth month on Accutane. What would you say, based on the photos, is it a good station to be at, or should I be worried that this medicine shan't work for me? I'm just so lost, seeing all those people who make an impressive change by the end of month 3. (Oh, and my journey has been so difficult even so far. It's definitely ups and downs. 3 weeks ago my face was almost the same as it is now, however, a damned breakout came, and it got

    Progress

    Starting this a bit late, but decided to record my progress. Currently ten days into treatment on 40mg of Amnesteem twice a day. During the first week I noticed a total change in how my acne behaved, while I still had breakouts (all whiteheads and one cystic on my right cheek) the pimples seemed to cluster together with smaller heads than usual, and they would heal and be gone by the next day. Up until the 8th day, I didn't experience any dryness other than slightly dry lips, but, oh boy d
