When I turned 19, I started to battle acne. I then went on accutane for 5 months at age 20. I was clear for a year and then by the age of 22, I started to break out again and the derm put me back on accutane. I am now 23 and it has been 8 months since I have been off of accutane. I am clear, however I am scared to death that I am going to start breaking out again. I used to wear make-up all of the time to cover my breakouts, but I havent touched the stuff for about a year now. I am so obsessed with my skin that I freak out if I get a little tiny pimple. I feel like it rules my life.....I just dont want to have to go through what I went through before. I have been doing the Murad acne complex for preventitive measures, and it seems to be working okay, but I dont know if its the Murad or the post accutane time frame. I am getting married in a month and am deathly afraid of wearing make-up for fear of breaking out, however I dont not want to wear make-up for fear I will make an ugly bride....sorry for the long post, i just need support and advice from people that know how I feel.
