I’ve officially been on Isotretinoin (10mg/day) for 5 weeks. If you are unaware of what Isotretinoin is, it’s the drug used in Accutane to help get rid of your pimples and acne. Have there been improvements from day 1? Yes, major improvements. Have there been improvements from last week? I don’t really think so. So what’s changed? From day 1 a whole lot. From last week nothing really. I honestly think my face got a little worse from last week, with more red pimples around my forehead and on my cheeks. The old ones from a week or two ago got replaced with new ones (sadly!). However, I think my acne has gotten better. The only problems are the pimples. Along my neck the acne really cleared up, with only a couple problems still along my jaw line. The acne…

  University/College is extremely expensive, period. Is there a better word for expensive? Because I don’t think “expensive” even justifies how freaking costly it is to pay for a bachelors degree at university.  Due to the high prices that schools put on courses, lot’s of students don’t even consider applying to college because they know they can’t afford it and don’t want to be paying back loans their entire life. Which is honestly really sad because there’s so many smart people who are held back because the price isn’t right. I’d say there’s probably 30% of high school graduates that don’t go to college because it’s to expensive. 60% go to university but live unhealthy and nourish themselves off of ramen noodles almost every night. 5% can afford it all and have no money problems. And the final 5% don’t…

21 Accutane acne pills down.. and about 161 more pills to go, before I’ve finished my acne treatment. Hopefully my first and only round of this treatment. I haven’t seen any drastic changes from last week to this week, almost not enough to even write about, but I’m going to share what’s changed and the side effects as usual. If you’re new to these updates, you should go check out Week 1, 2 and 3 to get caught up before reading this one!

So, you’re feeling healthy and interested in making the easiest carrot & ginger smoothie? Well, you’re definitely in the right place. This recipe is honestly one of the simplest smoothie recipes I have ever made and can be prepared and made in less than 15 minutes. This is the perfect smoothie if you’re trying to prevent or fight off colds or just if you’re feeling really healthy and want a good health ‘kick’. There are so many benefits to all the fruits and veggies used in this recipe, but our star in this smoothie is Miss Ginger. She adds a little spice but brings a big array of health benefits that everyone should take advantage of. Ginger can help prevent heart disease, indigestion, bacterial infections, diabetes and so much more. Remember, when using ginger in your recipes to keep in mind…

So, week 3 (technically week 2 of the Accutane acne treatment because I’ve only taken 14 pills so far, I accidentally counted the day before I started as week 1) has rolled around and I’m extremely happy to say that improvements have been made! After being on the treatment for 2 weeks, I’m surprised to see that my face is getting better. Lots of people on this treatment don’t see any improvement until the third or fourth month, so I’m very lucky that my changes have already started. No major changes but I don’t care. It’s only been two weeks and I’ll be happy with any improvement. What’s changed? Before taking the pills my face was red on my forehead and down my neck, but that’s improved a lot. My complexion has started evening out more into one colour. My…
