#3354088 Wisdom Teeth Removal While On Accutane

Posted by Helton on 01 June 2013 - 08:22 PM

U should stop taking Accutane if u want to undergo any surgeries since it makes wounds heal differently.

But always consult your dermatologist to see if there's any ways to work around it. :)

I have something like that too.
I am thinking about dermabrasion, not the micro one. But I haven't consulted a plastic surgeon yet, I will wait and see.

For the mean time, I always use primer + foundation to cover them up, I would say they are better by at least 70%

Day 4


Nothing to report yet. I just wanted to say that I woke up this morning feeling grateful for all the nice things that you guys said to me. It makes me realise how much support I have, and that means the world to me smile.png


What do you people take your Accutane with? I've seen people taking it with fish oil capsules. I was told not to take any supplements when on this, so is taking fish oil okay? I've also heard of people taking it with olive oil, although I don't want to eat tablespoons of olive oil so has anyone tried olive oil capsules?

Ahhhh so many questions!! Thanks guys smile.png


I think the guideline is just for actual vitamin supplements, like Vitamin A. Although I don't think accutane is the same as just any vitamin A, I guess we shouldn't get anymore of it so it wouldn't be interfering.

However, things like oil shouldn't be a problem because it doesn't have any vitamins in it. smile.png


When you choose a olive oil capsule, just make sure it's organic, cold pressed, extra virgin and all that jazzzzzz, haha!

It could be beneficial, but not harmful as long as you are not eating excess amount of fat from other sources daily.

Plus, you don't really need to add more fat if you are taking the accutane pill with a normal meal cooked with oil.

Olive oil is nice though, people feed their puppies olive oil to make their fur shine. I would like my hair to shine, hehe badgrin.gif

#3347707 Tired Of This..

My psychology class actually just started a subject relating to self esteem.

So what's self esteem - it's the difference between "actual self" and "expectation".

The closer of your "expectation" to your "actual self", the higher your esteem will be, and vice versa.

For example, some people would commit suicide because they got a grade less than an "A", that's because they have abnormally high "expectation" to themselves, and they don't know how to cope with it when their "actual self" doesn't fit the "expectation".
And true story, that happens to students in Universities.


So relating this to your concern, your parents say you look good, but you don't think so.

Maybe they are telling the truth, but you don't see it because you are holding a high "expectation" to yourself. (Which isn't a bad thing at all)

Not telling you to lower your standard, but maybe try to take it easy on yourself.

( And I totally believe they are telling the truth, looking at your profile photo it confuses me why wouldn't you think you look gorgeous.)


Just the same as most people would think getting a B or just passing a class would be satisfied enough, why insist on getting an A when you could still feel happy and relaxed with a B.

Our body is just a machinery that we use to experience the world with.

Beautiful or not, enjoy life while it lasts.

I visited that website you provided, and it's a bit confusing to me too, but I managed to find the "Foundation" page. There's actually a few different type of foundation depending on their cover and finish, but I think "IT" has the best coverage out of all.


Now, the thing about mineral powder is that it's hard to find a perfect match for your skin tone... But since you said u want to be darker, then I guess the color "Golden Medium" would be the best to try out~
And you will need a brush for applying mineral powder
^This one is exactly what I used for applying everyday mineral powder.

From my experience with make up, mineral powder is very good at evening out skin tone and neutralizing redness. Though the coverage is somewhere from light ~ medium.

If you really have noticeable redness, then u would need a liquid foundation to cover it up. Revlon Colorstay Whipped is my favorite medium~full coverage foundation.

And remember, the BIGGEST tip I always give out to people about make up is that, ALWAYS use a primer before applying any type of foundation. Primer helps the foundation to stay put and last longer and look better.

Smashbox primer is a good one.
