So I decided to go off the low dose Accutane even on 10mg my skin was dry and my lips we getting unbearably dry. I knew I didnt want to be on Accutane again which this round could be considered the fourth time on the drug. So, I remembered I broke out after the last time I finished Tane back in 2005 - I controlled the break out with BP and used the "The Acne Cure" method which is a book written by Terry Dubrow.
So I did a little research and I concluded that I am low on Zinc - I workout a lot, on the birth control pill both depletes Zinc. The reviews on acne.org regarding Zinc have been nothing but mostly glowing. So I went out and bought myself a bottle of Zinc - its been about 5 days combined with yoga my skin is looking massively clearer - naturally. I think I should be able to control my acne with yoga and vitamins and eating clean. But only because I just finished a massively tough Tane cycle in November it is still a miracle drug.
Also, I have come to the conclusion that Vitamin A does nothing for me - it just doesnt agree with me. I know how to use to the medication but it just doesnt clear me up - it didnt 7 years ago and the 7 years before that. I am way more clear using one week of straight BP than the past year on Vitamin A cream. My doctor had me use Vitamin A cream while I was on Tane but on 80mg of Tane most people will be clear no matter what they put on your face.
I will keep you informed with how my skin reacts to this new skin regime.
