Follow me on my Accutane Journey. This is the intro to the series.
Before getting Accutane:
I have tried several acne products including Neutrogena, Murad, Differin, Tazorac, Retin- A and Minocycline (antibiotics). The antibiotics cleared my skin up, but several months after stopping them, my acne unfortunately came back. I have not tried birth control for my acne because my dermatologist told me that my acne was not hormonal according to my blood work.
I currently have very oily skin. By the end of the day, I look like a greaseball - it's gross. My acne isn't as severe as many other people that go on Accutane, but sometimes it will be pretty severe and other times not that severe. It is hard for me to control.
