Hey all, I have made a during and after accutane photo set. If any of you have questions for me, I would be glad to answer. I can just say that I have changed quite a bit now that I do not constantly think about my skin anymore.

AM: CeraVe foaming cleanser

Paula's Choice 2% liquid BHA mixed with Paula's Choice vitamin C serum

Acne.org BP

Acne.org moisturizer

Paula's Choice SPF 30 sunscreen (physical sunscreen, do not use chemical sunscreen on the face, more likely to break out)

 

PM: CeraVe foaming cleanser

Paula's Choice 2% liquid BHA mixed with Paula's Choice vitamin C serum

Acne.org BP

Acne.org moisturizer

 

1x per week: chemical peel (40% lactic acid or 30% glycolic acid)

 

Be hopeful and grateful at all times! Sunscreen is my BFF.

I looooove make up. You should never break out from your make up.

Your skin care products should be your base, most of it being absorbed into the skin. Make up is designed to sit on top of the skin.

Wow your skin sure did clear up real good, any side effects? I'll hopefully be getting accutane prescribed in a months time

Side effects were mainly very dry lips, very mild joint cracking, and unfortunately quite a bit of hair loss. But the dry lips was the main factor, just make sure you drink plenty of water and you will be fine! cool.png

Congrats on the great results. I just finished my 6 month treatment last month. It's such a great feeling waking up and looking at yourself in the mirror and not seeing any new pimples on your face. I hope our results last forever!

It depends on the person. For me, the red has faded to brown and it takes a while. Using AHA, vitamin c serums, and BHA helps TONS. Look at the skincareaddiction subreddit on reddit for more help. Also, tons of h20 :D
