Accutane Journey - Mild Acne

50 posts in this topic

I'm on day 5 of accutane and I use lip balm every few hours (nivea is the best) and also moisturize my face a few times a day. The first time I did accutane (2 years ago) my skin only became clear after 5 months of treatment! So be patient and moisturize moisturize moisturize!!! Good luck!! :')

Month 1 39 days on 30 mg done, today i took my first 40mg pill, and will take 40mg next 6 months. Only 1 active, but some scabs and marks from previous bad week.

Side effects : eczema on hands, mild dry lips, dry skin but 1day moisturizing is totally enough to keep skin not dry.

hi :) don't worry, i think in general in the picture you look very nice! and several pimples don't make a difference. i like clay a lot in coping with acne. did you try it out? my favourite is Herbline acne cream from http://www.naturals.lv/en/creams/15-acne-cream.html i am afraid of taking pills to cope with acne, i believe there can be side effects. but except for pills, what other methods of coping with acne you find useful?

And reply for previous post - only thing that really helped me long term was zineryt.
