Accutae Update: Redness/derm

Posted by JDW, 31 July 2013 · 460 views

So I haven't updated in ages, had the best intentions to keep track but in the end I really had nothing to write about. Firstly I'm going to talk about my redness, its pretty much the only side effect that I currently care about as the others are all the minor manageable ones. As I've stated, explained, complained and bitched about previously I look...

Week 7

Posted by JDW, 04 February 2013 · 441 views

So I skipped week 6 due to slackness and lack of anything to really write about Week 7:   So not much happened during week 6, the most exciting thing was that I accidentally used AHA instead of moisturizer, had to wash if off and was worried that it would make my skin redder which I dont know if it did. This week everything generally stayed...

Week 5

So I've been slack, havnt done my week 5 update and also wanted to do a 'one month summary' entry aswell, maybe I'll do that another day.

Week 5:
Not much change which I perceive as good. Redness still annoying but I think it may be slightly improving. A couple new small pimples on my cheek. The oiliness of my skin is...

Week 4

Posted by JDW, 12 January 2013 · 482 views

Another week on 40mg and no major changes, the ones that have occurred are slightly my own fault.

So a goal of mine for my skin right now, seeing as I'm not worrying about acne and letting tane do it thing, is to reduce the redness from tane. I'd been putting on emu oil around week when I did my last update and planned on doing that for around a...

Week 3

Posted by JDW, 04 January 2013 · 457 views

Not much change this week, I haven't really been breaking out much anyway, maybe a mixture of mild acne and taking Bactrim. A couple more new pimples this week, small one on my forehead and another on my right cheek which will unfortunately leave a red...
