Will Accutane Hinder Athletic Performance?

I am very into high intensity physical activity such as Basketball, weight lifting, and heavy plyometrics, and i was wondering if being on Accutane will reduce my performance in any way. Thanks


Why Does My Face Sweat So Much?

13 April 2014 - 04:05 AM

My face seems to sweat so easily. I wash my face in the morning and then if i walk briskly to catch a bus my forehead would start to bead with sweat (sport and exercise is my life by the way so its not because im unfit!). I am a twin and my brother doesnt seem to have this problem and isnt as oily as me either. I think this may be because of all the chemicals i have put on my face in the last 3 years. 


Eryacne, Differin And Minocyclin Log

06 April 2014 - 02:21 AM

I started this just to log my own progress because in the past i have used products which have cleared up my skin, yet i change products very often to experiment and have forgotten the specific details. I have been the the dermatologist and was prescribed: Eryacne, differin, and minocyclin for 6 months. I have mild acne.

 

Morning: Effaclar cleanser + Eryacne

Evening: Effaclar cleanser + Differin

Morning: Repeat

Evening: Effaclar cleanser + Moisturiser 

REPEAT

 

Week 2

- Spots on chin have faded slightly 

- red marks on cheeks seem to have increased which is odd

- redness increased

- spots on forehead appearing

 


How To Use Eryacne And Differin?

15 March 2014 - 10:09 PM

So i got prescribed both Eryacne and Differin last week but the doctor didn't fully explain how and when to use it. The instructions on the Eryacne say twice a day, and Differin only at night. Just using the Eryacne and then Differin over the top of it at night seems like it might reduce the effects of the Eryacne. Thanks
