I’m opening up to talk about my skin, and how it has affected me for the past few years. I’ve struggled with acne since I was 15. My acne has become increasingly worse the past two years, and I am about to take a big step to try and cure it for good. I will be starting Accutane at the end of June. For those who don’t know, Accutane (Isotretinoin) is a drug controlled by the FDA that has been shown to improve and cure severe cases of acne over the course of a 6 month treatment. The pill dosage is adjusted depending on the individual, and requires numerous blood tests, and commitment of the patient and prescribing dermatologist.
I’ve tried just about every drug and topical treatment under the sun in attempts to treat my acne. However, Accutane seems to be the next step for me to hopefully feel more confident, and help my skin become healthy.
I’m writing to see if there is any interest in me documenting my skin journey, while using Accutane these next few months. I’ve been through a lot mentally and physically because of acne, and I feel sharing my experience may be beneficial to anyone in a similar situation.
With that all in mind, please let me know in the comments if you would like me to do a series of posts all about my skin history and updates over the next few months. Thank you so much!
