hey! How are you? smile.png
It's the 81th day without accutane and i don't have clear face yet:(
 
i went to see another dermatologist and i said to her that i was on accutane and i asked her what i'm supposed to do now hahaha. She gave me a topical cream, "Cicalfate Restorative Skin Cream"
 

A technologically advanced restorative skin cream that helps speed the recovery process by maintaining an optimal healing environment for the skin.

 

  • • Helps speed the skin recovery process 
  • • Provides a healthy skin environment to minimize a potential infection 
  • • Prevents signs of scarring 
  • • Fragrance-free, preservative-free, colorant-free 
  • • Avène Thermal Spring Water to soothe and soften the skin 
  • • Hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic

 
On november i'll go to see her again and she said that i should do a dermabrasion because maybe it can help to reduce my scars and redness. she said that it should be the first thing i should try, before chemical peeling or laser. i agree with her hahaha.
a few minutes ago i saw again my old photos, from when i was on accutane and i'm in shock! 
i have not realised only now -what an improvement-. i mean i see my face every day on the mirror and i say that it looks so bad and things like this but when i saw those pictures i thought -if i feel in this way now, how i felt then? -
 
it is said that if you take accutane you can become depressed and now i can say that i was depressed too. not so depressed that i would cut my veins but i did not feel comfortable with myself, i haven't gone out and everytime i found a reason for this. i did not realise then sad.png i knew how your face can look if you take accutane, because i read so many blogs but when it happens to you it's not enough.
 
take care if you're on accutane too!

DAY 410 ( DAY 46 AFTER LAST PILL)

 

Hello guys! smile.png

 

so i finished the journey 1 month and 15 days ago, i was 1 year without a day on accutane (something happened to one pill and the other one i gave to my cousin), 20mg/day everyday so i took 7280 mg.

 

my min dose should have been 5520mg (120mg/kg) and my max 6900mg (150mg/kg) so i took it a few days more smile.png)

 i still have scars how you can see and the redness :(

i went at sea at the end of august but for my face i used 50SPF and i did not get tan hahaha

people said that there is an improvement but again i'm not sure i can see it hahah.

this week i will go to see my derm. again because the last time i've gone there was at the end of june.

i'll see what he will say and if i have to take BC or not :/

Day 337 ( Day 7 Month 12)
 
Helloo! How are you?
 
It's almost 1 year since i've started this journey and i don't know how i feel. I am not clear yet, but i'm thinking about giving up. I mean i have 44-45 kg and i reached my max. dose ( min is 120mg/kg and max 150/kg, isn't it?). I'm pretty sure that it's not ok to take more than my organism can lead.
The next tuesday i'll go at my derm and we'll talk about this. A few weeks ago he said to me about BC pills. I've never taken these pills. He said that maybe these will help my face. don't know what to do.. to take or not to take?

 

now i have mostly scars and ~3 places where i feel some nodules that do not want to get out.
 the redness kills me :'(

Hello! How are you?smile.png

Finnaly i had time to take some photos of my skin and to upload them here.

 

To anyone who is starting the accutane journey now, take photos of your face/body at least one time/week. you will be amazed by the changes of your skin.

 

you see your face everyday in the mirror and you don't see the improvement, i know because i don't see it hahaha even if others say it's better and better.

and i was looking at my photos from the first or second month of accutane and i was O M G.( you can see them on the past entries. and you will be OMG too hahaha)

can't believe that my face looked so bad sad.png i know that at that time it's how it had to look but anyways...

 

my face is not perfect yet but i hope.

 

summer it's almost here and it's soooo so hot outside. i started to use sun protector with 50SPF and to drink a lot of water again. it reminds me of the first days with accutane i don't know why hahaha

 

Have a good day!

hey rachel! i'm happy that your marks are going. i wanna ask you how do you put the lemon juice on your face? how do you apply it? 

 

I juiced the lemon the first time, but now I find it's easier just to cut a slice off the lemon every night and rub it all over my face.

and you wash it then or you let it to be absorbed? thank you for the answer. i'll try it
