In Topic: Accutane Is Making My Skin Darker

17 December 2013 - 10:48 PM

Your face doesn't look darker to me. Accutane makes you photosensitive so it's possible you could have a bit of a tan on your face because it is exposed to the most sun. When I was on accutane I would get sun burned from barely an sun exposure at all.


I just realised that the picture is upside down neutral.gif My skin has been super sensitive while on Accutane. I think you might be right about the tanning. All of my friends at uni have definitely noticed a change in my face skin tone but my little brother was the last straw. I cant even use my laptop because my skin feels so sensative

i made the same choice, the regimen isn't for everyone. I am now 2 months and 4 days into accutane and it is just a relief knowing that my skin will be clear in the next 4 months, fingers crossed. Acne is getting really old!

Day 52


Whoa, the days are going by really fast now. I guess I've just been busier.


Anyway, still breaking out everywhere. All kinds of acne too, from big deep cysts to tiny little whiteheads. Can't tell if skin is dry or not. This morning I wiped an oil slick off my nose (but the sides of my face were dry). In the evening though, whole face was dry.


I keep hoping the Accutane will finally kick in and I'll stop breaking out, but that also means with each new pimple I get more and more discouraged. I think I need to stop expecting results NOW and focus on expecting results ONLY at the end of my course. That way I won't be disappointed all the time.


I am on 60 mg day 60 and i am in the same position as you. Expecting results now is wishful thinking, the major positive at this stage of accutane is mainly your skin being less oily  and minor improvements to your acne. From what i have seen month 4-5 is the turning point in most cases.

Cleanse and moisturise twice a day. Only use the pea-sized amount of BP once a day smile.png

thank you very much

^ Just what he said, and slowly build up the amount of BP each week until you're applying the full amount twice per day - usually over a 3-4 week period.

thank you very much
