I had struggled with bad acne on my face back and chest since I was 12. I would layer on the concealer and tried all the magical washes and oral prescriptions. NOTHING phased my hideous skin. I was so ridiculously depressed. I went to extreams and starting self mutilating my body because I thought I was a monster.
About 7 months ago I got on accutane (side effects warnings did not phase me because I was doing more self damage at this point) although even after the first 4 months of terrible side effects as well as bad skin....they uped my dose and extended my time.
... I now have CLEAR and PRETTY skin alllllllll over and I don't mind my bf seeing me without caked on makeup! ;)
Although accutane is a pain to take and has annoying side effects, it is SO WORTH IT!!!
