So what exactly is the skin in your face like now? Is it still a bit oily, is it just right or do you have dry skin now?
I have dry skin right now. Literally no oil, only obviously there must be some teeny bit of sebum production because my skin is not paper dry like it was in month 1. When the summer days are upwards of 30 Celsius my skin will be a teeny bit shiny on the nose and forehead, but it never actually feels oily.
As I'm writing this, I'm blinking every second because my eyes are soo dry! Before accutane, my neck was the oiliest, just under my chin. Now, I am positive I can withhold showering for a week and not feel oily, not that I intend to do that
But the change is ginormous.
Currently, I'm almost 1/3 through my 5th month
. Crazy how time flies! If my skin maintains its current state, after accutane, I will be one very happy girl. One very negative thing I have to complain about is the scarring left from the initial breakout. The red marks are taking quite a long time to fade, but they're on their way. But gahhh, how I wish I could have prevented the breakout. I think if I get a pimple even now, it might scar, so I'm being extra cautious.
I'm making some new observations that may or may not apply to others on the board.
I've noticed that if I'm active, my skin behaves a great deal. It's more elastic, less flaky, and overall looking great. I'm a computer addict, so I spend a lot of time in front of the screen, so this is a lifestyle change. I've never liked working out a sweat, but now I try to do at least 3 intense workouts a week to the point where my face sweats. Sweating is great for clearing the pores and it loosens dead skin on the surface. It's like a non abusive exfoliater!
Aaand once again sorry for not having updated more frequently
I will have a great deal more to say after my course ends. Hoping for the best
