23yr old female I have had severe and horrible Acne since I was in 4th grade! My 4th grade teacher even sent me to the nurses office for chicken pox. How emberassing! Iam almost 24 now. I just started accutane 4 months ago. I read on here that a lot of people were really bothered by the side effects. The first month was the worst, super dry skin & super dry lips. But for me having Acne my whole life, I really didnt care about any of the side effects. All you need is a good moisturizer and a gentle face wash (I use redness relief from Eucerin). Ohh yeah and blistex or carmex. None of that fruity stuff. I have one more month of accutane to take. The last time I saw my skin this clear I was in the 3rd grade!!! I had it on my back, chest, shoulders, arms, and of course my face! I decided every day on what to wear by where, and how bad I was broken out. It was such a depresesing, and emberassing feeling. Bathing suit season was horrifying. I had to find tops to cover up my back. Anyways this is the best thing thats happened to me. I feel like a completely different person. More confident, and more free to live life how others do.
