Accutane Products/regimen Advice

28 May 2013 - 09:57 PM

I SPENT SO LONG ON THIS, SO PLEASE DON'T LEAVE smile.png!!! So I'm starting Accutane tomorrow or the next day and I'm so excited biggrin.png! I went to get my blood work today and sometime tomorrow I'll pick up the prescription. In the meantime, I've been trying to prepare for the dryness coming my way. Recently I've been using CeraVe Moisturzing Lotion to moisturize my skin, and I think i'll stick with it (but I might use the cream instead of the lotion). I don't like Cetaphil because it has been extremely greasy with my skin in the past, so I'll avoid using Cetaphil. But aside from that, I'd like to present you with the products I need help deciding between to use throughout my Accutane treatment. Lastly, I urge you to open up the links to see what I'm talking about; the lip moisturizer link for example has a collection of products I need help deciding between. I can assure you that the links are safe eusa_angel.gif.

 

     Facial Cleanser:  CeraVe Foaming Facial Cleanser / CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser (HELP ME DECIDE WHICH ONE PLEASE!!!)

     Facial Moisturizer: CeraVe Moisturizing Lotion / CeraVe Moisturizing Cream (HELP ME DECIDE WHICH ONE PLEASE!!!)

     Lip Moisturizer: Vaseline Lip Therapy (HELP ME DECIDE WHICH ONE PLEASE!!!)

     Sunscreen:  EltaMD UV Clear Broad-Spectrum SPF 46 (This product has tons of good reviews - check Amazon!)

 

So go ahead and tell me what you think! I'm trying to stick between these products. However, if you honestly have a really good suggestion or two (or more haha), please feel free to share! Thank you so much!

 

A bit more about myself:

 

     Gender: Male

     Age: 18

     Skin Type: Oily/Combination (at the moment); Dry (when I'm gonna be on Accutane); Afterwards, who knows unsure.png.

     Skin Color: Fair

 


Which Honey Do I Use?

06 December 2012 - 03:27 PM

I've read around and I know that I'm supposed to use raw honey for a face mask. So, I went out to the store and bought two different ones because I didn't know which one I am supposed to use... I'm not even sure if one of them is "raw" honey because it says "100% Pure Raw Natural...Honey" and apparently there is a difference between pure honey and raw honey. So, here's a picture of the two:

Here's a picture of the RAW UNFILTERED HONEY:

Finally, here's a picture of the 100% PURE RAW NATURAL HONEY

...so which one do I use? The raw unfiltered honey seems to be kind of cloudy and solid to the touch, but maybe that's just the top layer... I've never boughten raw unfiltered honey so I'm unsure as to what I'm supposed to do with it. I assume I just scoop it out and smear it all over my face. Any help would be appreciated Posted Image. Thank you!
