Hi there, I’m 24 years old has been suffering from bad acne about a year ago. I did went to specialist and my skin condition did improved but I don’t really like the way they handle my problem. However, acne come back to me and I am really sad about it. Been taking accutane for months during the treatment but it seems to has side effect if over taking it so I don’t dare to purchase online. I hope to get better skin !
