So today I went to get my hair done at my neighbors house who I've known her and her family for years! And basically I got my hair colored and it burned so bad. Which I was aware that might happen but just a warning to everyone it hurts like hell. But nothing happened to my head! Also her daughter in college has always had bad acne and I told her how I was doing taking Claravis and how my skin is better and I've never been happier and blah blah blah and she was so excited to tell her daughter who has also tried every topical/natural/ antibiotic product out there. So I'm really excited that I might get to help someone along there Accutane journey and get to talk to them!
Other than that! My skin is really clearing up now. Earlier this week I had some cysts that are pretty much gone or are scabs also my chest and back are pretty much clear. I'm so happy right now. And I can't wait to go to the dermatologist on Monday an possibly increase my dose. Also I'm going to request blood work.
Side effects: Dryness, itchiness, mild eczema, easily bruising and getting cuts.
Products for nighttime: wipe off makeup with Yes to Cucumbers soothing hypoallergenic facial towelettes. (These are super gentle on my skin, non-drying, and are 98% natural)
Cleanse with Cetaphil gentle skin cleanser for all skin types(to remove and access makeup that might be left in the skin) I found that even moisturizing face washes still dried my skin out and it was better to just use this.
For moisturizer I use Ceraphil Lotion and once that dries I put aquaphor all over my face and neck, including my eyes and lips. Everyone says not to put on aquaphor on your face but my skin is so much less dry, it doesn't break me out, and it heals my skin so fast! Better than any moisturizer I have used! And it's so gentle on my skin and can be used on any part of your body.
Morning: I wash my face off with just warn water because my skin doesn't get as dry during the day.
Then I moisturize with CeraVe lotion and apply liquid foundation (haven't found a specific brand I like) then I cover spots that show through by putting powder foundation on a eyeshadow brush.
During the day I use medicated Chapstick.
For shampoo I use Herbal Essence Hello Hydration and Aussies 3 minute miracle.
I honk that's it! I just wanted to give an updated routine because I changed it up and this works so well for me and so much better than my other one!
