Haha thanks! I'm a total joker. Guess you could say I refuse to grow up. I have acne and braces on my teeth, plus I'm still in grad school. I still get carded at R-rated movies sometimes. Hahaa Whatever!!! I can't believe how good you progress was. I can't WAIT to have clear skin again. Did you use an SPF daily? And if so, which one? Thanks!
my sister is the same way!! and you will get it! I use Aveeno SPF 15 Ultra-Calming moisturizer every morning, and some days I apply it more generously than others! I seriously recommend it. I have sensitive skin to begin with, and for example, when I shaved this morning, my face was so irritated and red! But I put it on and it feels sooo good
And I never got sun burnt on accutane or after using it!
The only real time I went outside was on a cruise, because I tried to avoid the sun. I used SPF 100, and although I looked like a grease monkey, I didn't get a sunburn!
I've been following your log since I made the decision to go on Accutane, and you look great!! I also love your positivity and I'm so glad everything worked out wonderfully for you
Thank you so so much
I hope it works great for you as well!!!
I haven't had any inflamed pimples since I stopped really, except for one but it was because I touched that part of my face a lot. But now I am not!
I'm getting little bumps here and there, especially on my chin, but it's because I'm not exfoliating rigorously right now because my skin is still sensitive.
I feel like the AHA cream is making my skin more plump and the red marks are fading seriously quite quickly with this cream!! I can NOT recommend it enough for after accutane!!!
It's $7-8 at walgreens, it's a walgreens brand (AHA cream) but it has 5 stars and it has 8% glycolic acid, which won't irritate your post-accutane skin, but pretty much maintains your complexion and clearness! The benefits are: smoother complexion, plumper skin, and gentle exfoliation!! I mean, how perfect is that for post-accutane blotchy, sensitive, and thin skin?!http://www.walgreens...5822041-product
It's pretty much the benefits of Retin-a, without all of the irritating side effects. I will not put strong chemicals on my face for a while, and this seems to be doing what I want it to!!
