My acne story: I'm starting Accutane (eek!)

Thursday, July 27, 2017

I consider myself to be an open book, especially when it comes to this blog. So it should come to no surprise when I share my struggles with you guys for my acne. It's something that I have unfortunately been struggling with for ten years, and I've honestly had enough of it. At this point I don't even remember my life without acne because I've had it for so long. Now mind you my acne hasn't always been the worse.

Like most pre-teens and teenagers I had a few zits here and there. But unlike my peers, after trying Proactive and/or other remedies my acne seemed to be getting worse. In fact, my acne was getting so bad that it was becoming painful at times because cysts were beginning to form. If you asked me what products I've tried throughout the past ten years it would take at least five minutes for me to list out every product I have tried. From Biore washes, to antibiotics, and differn I have been the face of products only slightly working.

Hopefully things are about to change because I'm starting, what is known to be the 'cure' for acne. To be honest I'm really excited, but also pessimistic. Why? Like I said, I've tried EVERYTHING and it just seems to be getting worse. I'm at my wits ends and cant imagine going outside the house makeup free anymore (not that I don't at times because at the end of the day I don't care THAT MUCH what people think when I'm attempting to work out).  I'm revamping my Youtube channel at the moment and will be publishing bi-weekly videos about my journey with the beloved Accutane, its side effects, and everything in between. Check out the video below and let me know what you think!
