Mini-breakout this time, but I've been under a lot of stress, so it's expected. Luckily, my rash is fading rapidly, perhaps since I've stopped showering every night.
So I guess to recap my whole experience:
+ Acne has started to go away (very very sloooowly!)
+ No joint pain
+ I had no initial breakout on 40 mg accutane
+ Skin isn't dry? It gets a bit flaky about one morning/week, so I just put on some lotion and it's gone for another while
+ Hair seems normal
+ No obvious mental side effects (I'm a bit depressed, but that's not new)
- Obviously, dry lips
- Blu-light doesn't really do anything, but it's relaxing
- Bizzaro rash
- Nails are more brittle than usual
- Occasional dry eyes, but not chronic
Oh, and price!
My entire blu-light package cost a grand total of $200, totally not worth it, but it's already paid for.
Accutane costs me 16.75 per month,
I might upload some progress pics later on, but I'm wearing make-up right now so I can't take a current one.
I'm really hoping for my skin to be clear enough that I feel comfortable going out without make-up by March.
