At first, I mis-counted. It's Day 7, which means week one is done! Woo! I have been taking Accutane (one 40mg pill per day) for 7 days and not much has happened. I had a few tiny whiteheads that came and went away. My lips got a bit more dry (but I already constantly use chapstick). Other than that, I haven't felt barely any side effects. My face is...
Hoping For Clear Skin On Accutane
I am on Day 2 of Accutane. I took 1 40 mg pill with breakfast this morning. So far, I haven't experienced much of anything in the way of side effects. I did have a bit of a headache after taking my pill yesterday morning, but it felt more like a brain freeze and went away after a few minutes. Here is what I'm using in the way of skin, body, lip...
I took my first pill of Accutane this morning with breakfast! Eeek! I'm nervous. I took 1 40mg pill with a protein bar, yogurt, and huge glass of water because the protein bar has some fat in it, which helps your body absorb the Accutane. My derm prescribed me to take 1 40mg pill once a day (with breakfast) for the first month. Then, after the first month...
So, I'm annoyed. I messed with a zit and now I have a fairly big red mark on the right side of my chin. And what makes me feel worse than the acne is the fun I miss out on because I'm not willing to slap on a ton of coverup to go outside and sit in the sun. I'm telling myself that it's actually better to put on moisturizer and let my skin breathe instead...
So, if you're a male, I suggest you veer away from this particular blog post. I've been doing this skin care regimen consisting of an oral antibiotic, topical antibiotic, topical retinoid, benzoyl peroxide face wash, and cerave gentle cleanser and moisturizer for about a month now and I really, really like it. My face is SO much more clear. It's craz...
My skin is looking a lot better. My pores are almost entirely clear, except for a few near my nose. So what's the problem? Red and dark marks. For some reason--maybe it's my antibiotic, the benzoyl peroxide facewash I use once a day (Panoxyl 4%) or the topicals (Atralin; Topical Antibiotic) I'm using, but each time I get a small red mark or scra...
I posted about the skin care regimen that I am currently using (as prescribed by my dermatologist) until I can get Accutane and I am absolutely loving it! My pores are much, much smaller and the dirt/ oil/ blackheads are all gone (except for a few on my nose). I don't have any new acne, just two small red marks from previous blemishes. Here's t...
So I think I had an initial breakout on this skin care regimen because my pores were getting rid of dirt/oil. But, my face is actually fairly clear besides a couple of small red marks that are easily hidden with concealer. I don't really like that my face feels a bit tight after using the PanOxyl wash in the morning, but since it has Benzoyl Peroxide in i...
So I've been using a new skin care regimen prescribed by my dermatologist for the next month or so until I can start Accutane. Before the regimen, my face was actually starting to clear up. Now, I think my skin had an initial breakout on this regimen because my pores were getting rid of built-up dirt/ oil. I have one small cyst/ zit? on my right jawline,...
Hey everyone! I have watched dozens of YouTube videos about people and their Accutane journeys, talked with friends who have taken Accutane, and talked with my dermatologist about products to use while on Accutane and I figured I would share the list of possible products. While on Accutane you are not to use any type of acne-related skin care pr...
