Hey everyone! So I am almost finished with week 3 on accutane... and I have good news! My skin has looked better than it ever has in the past two years. I am extremely impressed with this product. All of the bumps between my eyebrows are gone. Almost all of the bumps of my chin are gone (a few are still underneath the surface). The areas between my eyebrows are still red and the pores are still open, but this is easily concealed with some foundation.
Foundation that I recommend: Chanel perfection (this is amazing stuff!). It is pricey but I think it's worth it. Oil-free as well.
I had my first nosebleed on day 20, and I almost never have nosebleeds. This is a pretty common side effect though so I'm not worried. Oh yes... I do continue to recommend the brand Cerave! I love the cleanser especially... it almost feels like lotion!
Even though I do have mild acne, I am amazed at how fast my face has cleared up. I think it is because I'm on a fairly high dose per day (60 mg per day).
So, if you are hesitant about going on accutane, do know that you will have an initial breakout. And mine was bad. My skin looked worse than before I started AND my lips had a terrible, terrible reaction. I almost came off of it because I thought I wouldn't be able to handle it. But I just waited it out and I am really happy that I did. Tune in for week 4 next week!
