I've completed two round of accutane and my accutane is returning i NEED HELP!
So, here is my background:
i am 25 year old female and started getting acne in 8th grade when i got my period. I was able to control my acne all through high school with topicals and yes, proactive. It wasn't until jr year of college in which my acne started getting pretty bad. I tried a birth control and let's just say my skin freaked out! I got my first cyst then and ever since i've struggled with my acne and cyst. After trying topicals and antibiotics, i finally agrees to take accutane in 2011. Let me clarify that my acne was never severe, it was just very persistent. I was on a 7 month course in 2011 and had a pretty easy experience with accutane. I cleared almost very quicly and by the end of the 7th month my skin was gorgeous. BUT a year later it came back and derm put me on a second course in aug 2012, and let me tell you this round was pure hell! I broke out like a mother and didnt clear til the 4 month in which i had to stop because i developed belphartis from the drug. lucky me. so here i am 6 months post accutane and suffering with a ton of clogged pores all over my face and small pimples. the only good thing, is i have very minimal scarring just redness....
so what am i doing now for my skin....let me first of start by saying i eat SO healthy. no dairy, gluten, soy, corn or sugar. I ate a ton of veggies, fruit, organic chicken, quiona, healthy fats ( olive oil, coconut oil), and i drink 16oz of green juice daily. I also drink 6 bottles of water a day and drink green tea. I work out and practice yoga and i don;t really drink. For my skin, i've been using a gentle moisturizer, acne. org cleanser, and spot treating. i tried facials -- didn't work. tried using a clarisonic that didnt work. manuka honey -- nope. aragn oil -- nope!
please any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated. i feel so ashamed of my face. when my skin is nice i feel so GREAT and confident and now i feel so depressed. please help!
