You're not allowed to drink on Acutane? Uhhhhh okay pretty sure I realize why my friend was having such bad side effects. D:
Anyways, here's an odd one. My parents made up that sitting in the sun will "burn" away my acne. Half an hour of direct sunlight every day... And well it did. :s I wasn't on any meds at the time since you shouldn't be in direct sun on them, but my god I was shocked that it worked.
I have no idea if there's any science behind that but it worked for me.
Some people put lemon juice on their faces but I think it can get stuck in your pores more. My herb book does talk about it working. Posted via Mobile Device
Yeah you can't, since while you're on Accutane you're liver is taking a pounding, and drinking while taking it, well, let just say you might end up with an alcoholic's liver even though you're not one yourself.
To be honest, acne for everyone is different, my sister has really bad acne as well and hers is like deep in her skin, there's actually no bump, and it's all red. Her friend has the same kind of acne too and she tried Accutane twice and it didn't work for her. Acne sucks.
Yea I get bumps, and cysts, they are like humongous bumps, you can't see them cause they're skin colour but you can feel them and it's gross. You can't get them out without medicine because they're so big...
I've seen that flat looking acne too. One kid at my school has it on his face, don't know him but it's pretty noticeable. He has tons of acne scars, looks like he tries to scratch them out.
It's so sad really. Makes you not want to go outside in the morning. :/
My doctor also told me to try proactive (never did). But he told me the active ingredient in it, sure you can find it on google, and you can buy it at the pharmacy for 1/3 of the price without the brand name. xD Posted via Mobile Device
I actually get pretty annoyed with acne product commercials like Proactiv, simply because the people on there are like "I used to have severe acne. . .", and it shows their face and their acne is not severe at all, it's probably like mild acne, it's just a few small zits that appeared probably because they didn't wash their face. c:<
I actually wasn't aware that my acne was so bad until people starting to point them out, then I got self-concious. And really, commercially sold acne products won't work if you have severe acne issues. Best to go to your doctor first before wasting money on Proactiv.
