Before and After she went on acne drugs.

MOST teenagers suffer with acne at some point, and Kali Kushner was no different.

But when she was 19 her acne became more severe and she developed red marks that went deep into her skin.

Now, the 22-year-old student from Ohio, is sharing her incredible transformation after taking a common drug to treat the condition.

Kali had tried everything to rid her of her cystic acne but found that most medication made her spots worse.

She tried over-the-counter creams, using natural oils and even chose the method putting nothing on her face including makeup and cleansers but nothing helped, she told Marie Claire.

Then her dermatologist recommended an oral medication called Accutane — Roaccutane in Australia — and it took just three months for her skin to show signs of improvement.

Now is the time more than ever to empower each other as women!! You are beautiful, and strong, and important, and capable of ANYTHING! ⭐️Don't discredit yourself or let anyone decide your worth- you decide your worth & the world is your oyster!! Let's work together to spread love and kindness- leave a comment below complimenting the person above you ❤️❤️ Do it!!

“I had always had some minor acne in high school, but one month in 2014, it went full-force crazy, covering my entire face,” she said.

Kali documented her journey on Instagram, which was originally meant to be for her eyes only.

But her battle with acne inspired other people and now she has hit 22,000 followers on the social media account.

Kali has now stopped taking the medication because of the adverse affects it had, including severe dryness and back aches.

Always remember that you are #beautifulbeautiful no matter what.

Roaccutane, which is made with vitamin A and is used to reduce oil production in the skin, is only available if it is prescribed by a doctor because of its adverse side effects.

Kali explained that she wanted her account to be a positive experience for other acne sufferers.

“People think you have acne because you’re dirty, or you don’t wash your face, or you’re just generally unkempt,” she said.

“I know it sounds cheesy, but you are so much more than your acne, and if you want to go on Accutane to make yourself feel more confident, then do it, but do it because of you, and not because you’re trying to look like this perfect image that matches our perfect standards of beauty.”

My 4 month results using the @banishacnescars starter kit. Although I was skeptical at first I'm excited to say that -yes it definitely works. My skin tone and texture are becoming more even and I have less flare ups (red/hot face flashes) then I used to. I rarely even wear makeup anymore because I want to show off my skin & let it breathe ...Read more
