My journey of beating adult acne begins!


My adult acne journey

Yesterday was the day I have been waiting for, For nearly 7 years to be precise! I am finally here & I am excited to start the Isotretinoin journey. From being pregnant with Edward my face started breaking out, Nothing major back then. So I put it down to hormones which all of us would do. I didn’t think I would still be in the same position but it being a lot worse 7 year on.

My journey with adult acne

Over that time I have had many different medications, Cream & Gels, Not one helped. I am not going to lie I lost all hope & Never went back for a few month. But now look I am finally on a journey that will help. In my dermatologist words “THIS KICKS ACNES ARSE” I really hope so. I am petrified though, As many of my followers will know I suffer with depression & Have done for years. One of the side effects of this medication is depression. I don’t want my depression to get worse so I’m going to keep an extra eye on it.


Some people may think “OH ITS JUST SPOTS” but it’s not just a spot or spots, Until you have dealt with it then you will never know how much it actually destroys you. I have lost all the confidence that I once had, I have avoided photos on days out with my family because of my face. So now when the boys look back at photos in years to come they won’t see many. I didn’t even want photos taken in my wedding day. It just makes everything feel uncomfortable. Memories gone all because of a face! I no longer make myself as presentable as I used too. Gone are the days where I would straighten my hair & Apply a bit of make-up. No matter what I do it wouldn’t change my face issues would it? Maybe once this treatment works the old me will return? Only time will tell but I have high hopes.

But.. I will tell you something! I can’t wait for the day when I can walk around without people looking down at me. My face may not be pretty right now but my heart is. Cant say the same for those who look at you like dirty because you have acne.

I will keep you all up to date with the progress & How I get on. I have attached pictures of my face today so you can see it’s not just the odd spot.(This has taken me since yesterday to build up the courage) And hopefully we will see good results soon. I can’t wait! Also mind the bags under my eyes, I hardly sleep as many know.

  1. This post made me tear up a bit! I’ve totally been there. It really does tear apart your self esteem. I cried so many times about mine and let’s not forget how painful it is! I really hope this works for you. 🙂
