Met with my Dr. It was a pretty annoying conversation. I let him know I have no desire to workout and that I have been losing weight. Of course he doesn't blame the medicine. I think he is full of it. The side effects aren't bad enough to come off of it, but don't tell me the medicine isn't causing these side effects.

My face has been pretty red lately. I haven't been using lotion so I will start to do that before I go to bed and see if that makes a difference,

I'm due to start on accutane soon and my doctor said that some people experience a lack of energy and find it more difficult to concentrate, like their 'get up and go' has got up and gone! So you're most likely right - it is a side effect of the drug. Not sure about the weight loss though, they didn't mention that. Hang in there! rolleyes.gif


Roaccutane 40mg daily taken with evening meal

 

Skincare routine (from a UK gal)

 

Morning:

Clarins Gentle Foaming Cleanser with Shea Butter

Clarins Multi-Active Day cream

 

I usually don't wear makeup as it clings to the dry patches and makes them look worse (I do put Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat on my eye bags though!),

but if I do wear makeup I use Clinique moisture surge tinted moisturiser or bareMinerals

 

Top up during the day if needed with Clarins moisture-rich body lotion with shea butter (I know it's a body lotion but it's great on the face too!)

 

Evening:

Clarins Water Comfort One-step cleanser

Clinique moisture surge intense skin fortifying hydrator

Blistex intensive moisturiser underneath Vaseline lip therapy with cocoa butter

Neutrogena Norwegian formula concentrated hand cream

 

About twice a week I use Clarins Santal Face treatment oil after gently exfoliating with Clarins Gentle Refiner exfoliating cream

After showering/bathing, I use Neutrogena sesame seed body oil

 

And don't forget the most important thing - liberal application of Aquaphor lip repair and Blistex intensive moisturiser throughout the day! :)
