Finally decided to take accutane
Entries in this blog
My chin is starting to break out really bad, which is also where I have the dry skin flakes. So that just looks lovely. The left left of my temple had tons of little bumps. My forehead has cleared up though. I have one big pimple coming in on my right cheek. My chest is still broken out, which sucks because when I first started it cleared up really nice and now it's back to being gross. This is so annoying. I start school in mid August so in praying my face is atleast under control by then.
My lady parts have been so dry lately, which I usually get dry before I start my period so that's not out of the normal. I looked thing a up online though to see if accutane has an effect on your vagina and sure enough there's girls complaining of being off accutane for a year and still not being about to get wet down there. That sounds horrible.
I'm starting to wonder if all these crazy side effects are worth it. Yeah clear skin will be nice but damn, is it worth having a these things wrong with you? What if these side effects are irreversible once you go off them?
My lips have been like the desert lately. I freak out if I don't have Chapstick with me. My boyfriend is really supportive about everything and makes me feel better about my breakouts so I really think that's the only thing keeping me positive! Hopefully my face clears up before school in a month. 😬
So far I have not really seen much of a change. My left temple is starting to break out a little, and I normally never get white heads but now that's all I'm getting. Since I have such oily skin I have noticed that I now don't need to really touch of my makeup as much throughout the day because its not getting super oily. Nervous for the initial break out but I'd rather just get it out of the way!
Here is what I'm using everyday.
Cetaphil gentle wash
Cetaphil oil control moisturizer
Garnier moisture rescue moisturizer
Clearasil rapid action face wash
Oxy pads for my chest and back
And for right now I am using Tazorac cream on my face so try and clear up some pimples. Idk if that's a bad idea but I've been using it for years so I feel like it'll be okay!
My scars are still pretty noticeable even through my makeup so I'm thinking I might buy a liquid foundation to wear to cover them better. I'm glad my face has cleared up a little before starting my treatment but I am a little nervous that its going to go crazy once I start. Just trying to hope for the best!
I get my blood work done tomorrow and then I can finally get things started!🎉
Well I just wanted to vent about that because I am soooo tired of dealing with them. Please tell me accutane will help these scars, because I can't stand looking at them anymore.
All these flaws have constantly made myself second guess how look. If a person is staring at me I suddenly hope they're not thinking about my acne. There has been nights where I've just completely canceled plans because my face looked too bad and I would rather just stay in. I've spent nights crying because I just feel so ugly. I never would have thought acne could have such an effect on someone but it truly has affected me. I feel as though I can't fully live how I want to live and I'm never as outgoing as I could be.
On the rare days that my face clears up its amazing how much more confident I am. I smile to people more, I'm a lot more willing to follow through on plans, I'm just happier. I am sure to live it up on the days that my skin decides to look presentable.
So I just wanted to talk about how acne had made me feel, and I hope maybe a year from now ill never have to have these depressing feelings again. If anyone has any sort of acne scar cream they have used to lighten scars I would love to know! Half my battle is scars. My face is honestly not bad with my powder on, but once you take it off my cheeks are just covered in dark marks.
I'd really appreciate any sort of suggestion!
I have tried literally everything. Proactive, store washes, antibiotics, birth control. EVERYTHING. So I have finally decided that I am done with acne and I am taking accutane and I am so excited.
My acne is usually pretty mild, no cystic acne but lots of red and purple scars. I have periods where my face is very clear but the next week I have twenty pimples on my face. I'm sick of it and I'm happy I have finally decided to take accutane. Once I start i plan on keeping a log, mostly for myself but also for anyone who wants to see how my progress goes!
