  1. UnspoiledDude

    December 14th 2016

    So this is my first entry, and I think I should start with who I am. Maybe this will help you relate and maybe stuff that helps me will help you! So I'm a 21 year old girl with not too severe acne but enough acne to lower my self-esteem. My journey so far: I had baby skin throughout puberty. Like. My skin was epic. Beautiful. Made from the gods. Okay, maybe not that good but you get the picture. And then it slowly said "F you UnspoiledDude, F you!" and changed into this mess of a skin.

    DAY 13

    Nothing much to say once again haha! The spots on my chin aren't as big today, that's the only thing I've noticed! I I think because I take my tablet so late in the evening after my dinner which is usually half 7, I'm sleeping through a lot of the tablet being in my system so I'm not feeling too many effects yet, I haven't had pains in a while! And taking it straight after dinner I think soaks up a lot of the tablet so I'm not having too my dryness (I don't want to speak too soon though!

    DAY 17

    My scalp is so dry now, has anybody got any recommendations for something to put on it? The problem is right at my hairline and there's a lot of flakiness. The only part of my face that's dry are my cheeks, my lips haven't gotten dry yet! Thankfully.
  4. Skin Condition The acne marks on my cheeks have gone back on track to improvement The discoloration on my lip is also looking improved this morning My chin looking better too. It used to be quite bumpy but this morning it looks really smooth and the any bumps have condensed to 4 tiny whiteheads The most irritation and acne is at the corners of my mouth I have some painful areas on my cheeks and around my mouth. I have lots of tiny hard pimp
  5. Not every treatment that claims to cure acne actually keeps its promises. Most teen acne sufferers (and their parents!) have experienced the disappointment of products that fail to deliver, and this can, of course, be heartbreaking. Not only do many remedies fail to work, they can also be very damaging to the skin and sometimes even the rest of the body. Most prescription acne treatments fall into four groups namely: * Normalizing- the medication is shed into the pore to minimize block
  6. Acne Diet and The Money Factor: You Can't Sell a Healthy Diet Ask any medical doctor if there is a connection between diet and acne and almost all of them will claim there is none. Quoting from the Journal of the American Medical Association: "Diet plays no role in acne treatment in most patients…even large amounts of certain foods have not clinically exacerbated acne". With years of medical education and clinical experience behind these claims, how can we the simple folks who suffer from
  7. 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

    Day 20

    Almost 3weeks! oh my days, it feels like 2 months! soo many side affects but they are starting to stop now, i used to be exetremly itchy but now not so much, i would get a sore, bloodshot eye etc but no longer that but possibly worst ive been getting very slightly blurred vision in my left eye, what should i do about this? i can barely notice it but when i can its pretty annoying? has anyone experienced something like this? the eczema on my hands are starting to peel and make my hands not lo

    DAY 16

    Still dry, very hot in Dublin at the moment and the heat is making me even more tired. Trying to keep my face out of the sun at all times.

    DAY 19

    Nothing new to note. I'm almost 3 weeks in and I haven't had any dryness of the face that's worth noting yet, starting to wonder could I just get really lucky.. But I don't want to jinx it! My lips haven't dried one bit! My lip balm is really good though

    DAY 28- 4 Weeks In!

    Can't believe it's been 4 weeks already! Just two days under a month and i'm really happy with my skin the past few days. This cheek in particular has cleared up loads and is a lot less red than when I compare it to pictures I took a month ago! This cheek is always the worst with my acne but I can also see an improvement here when I compare it to a month ago.

    End Of Week 8

    Hola All, Merry Christmas!! I hope you all celebrated in style with lots of family and loved ones! My apologies - I have missed Week 7 as I have been on holiday in China over Christmas and a lot of websites are banned there, including this one! However I am pleased to say that all is still going well with the treatment. I am starting to notice more severity in the side effects, my hands are starting to crack and I'm having to moisturise them as much as my lips...(accutane still has N

    3 Month Mark

    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
  14. 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
  15. Just a quick update that I'll be getting Broad Band Light treatment tomorrow (I think it's an updated type of intense pulse light treatment). It's supposed to help with sun damage, pigmentation issues, and overall skin health. It supposedly can help decrease your change of developing skin cancer in the future too which sounds like a nice bonus to me. I spent basically my entire youth frying in the sun and then my skin got scars from all my cystic acne so my skin has been through a lot. I figure

    Week 4

    This week I had a moderate breakout on the right side of my face. Nothing worse than I normally have, but still upsetting. I haven't really had any active acne on the left side of my face all week, just lots of red hyperpigmentation. I took pictures this morning and I think my skin looks slightly better in real life. Although my skin is still very red, my make-up goes over a lot smoother. The skin on the left side of my face looks almost completely smooth with foundation, and the only problem wi
  17. I have way less acne than I did a few years ago. I definitely know my skin has improved since then but I still feel the same shitty self conscious disgusting about my face because of hyper pigmentation. I am gettin quite a few spots again probably because I'm so stressed with Uni and then stressed that my skin still isn't clear after all these years. It's annoying you put so much effort into getting spots to go then ur still left with something else to cover. I have just read that it's be

    DAY 29

    I put make up on today for the first time in a few days and I'm really happy with how my skin looks underneath It kind of just looks like I'm somebody who has had a breakout! No dryness either! I get a little on my cheek and eyelids the odd time, but nothing that moisturiser won't fix

    DAY 30 & 31- Getting Worse

    Yesterday was the worst day I've had on the tablet and in the past few years actually. I had a family event with my boyfriend yesterday and I was not really in the mood to go in the first place. The way my head is at right now is that I'm being nice to people (because I have to) but inside I really couldn't care less what people are talking about and small things that people say annoy me so much and I feel like people are talking about me and giving me dirty looks etc. So I went to the eve

    1 month of using BP

    Hi! I've been using BP for a full month now and I honestly can't see much of a difference. I don't know if I'm gonna order the acne.org products and try them. I was kind of hesitant to use BP in the first place, because I believe the best thing you can do for your skin is just keep it clean and leave it alone and the BP clearly irritates my skin even now after a month. So idk, these 4 weeks hasn't given me more confidence in BP that's for sure. I'll do an update if I do decide to do anythin
  21. Hello all, I'm still on 35mg and I am on month 2. Just today some of the acne from previous breakouts have vanished, but newer and equally-as-painful pimples have erupted in more spots around my chin. What surprises me even more is that the time in between was so short. In other words, after waiting a week for my last breakout to recover I got hit with another set of whiteheads and one cyst looking one that I can see 2 whiteheads coming from. Yep, it's gross and it sucks to look at. It sucks

    DAY 9

    Day 9 and nothing to note after taking my tablet last night. The dryness that I saw yesterday was gone this morning after lots of moisturising yesterday. All good :)
  23. Hello again! So, today I started treating my acne with benzoyl peroxide. The products I'm using are: Cleanser - Basiderm Oil Control Foam Wash Benzoyl Peroxide - Basiron 5% AC Wash Moisturizer - Basiderm Oil Control Daily Moisturizer The cleanser was already foam when you squeezed it out of the bottle so I didn't really know how much to take, but I did use more than 4 ml. Then I used the BP-product and it was a little different from the acne.org regiment. Besides having 5% BP instead of

    DAY 24 & 25

    I have cheered up a lot since the other day I had a good weekend with friends and family and even that has me feeling more motivated to try and stay happy and not let the tablets keep me from enjoying things! I have my visit to the dermatologist on Wednesday this week too! No dryness at all or new spots popping up so all good on the skin front!
  25. Skin Condition Skin redness seems to be minimal like it usually is Lots of acne marks still on my cheeks, one whitehead on my left cheek No whiteheads on my chin this morning which is a nice surprise Just like yesterday my skin was quite dry and flakey. Dryness around my pimples (yay) Not as dry around my eyes as yesterday (yay) Not as dry around my mouth (yay) But this is still the dryest area of my face my forehead looks relativel
