2 Months Post Accutane

It's been 2 months since i've been off accutane and my skin is still amazing. I get the small pimple every now and then but it's NOTHING how it use to be. I miss my hair not getting greasy while on accutane but that's okay. I still have some dark spots and a red tint to my face but i have no active pimples at the moment.

Products Used on Accutane

I got a couple dms on the products i used while on accutane. Here are the absolute lifesavers. Kept my skin and lips moisturized at all times without ever over drying. I used the cereve lotion on both my body and my face because it was thick and I needed that. However, post accutane I would not put that thick cereve lotion on my face. I got a thinner one to use. I never used any other acne treatment products or face masks in the chance of over drying my skin.

Month 6

Just finished my final month of accutane. I am very happy with the results. My derm prescribed me a topical retinal to keep my skin clear so updates to come on how my skin keeps up post treatment. My skin still has a strong red tint to it, but i'm hoping now it will go away. I would 100% recommend accutane to a friend, but i do have to say it was hard for a couple months. months of crying and staying in bed instead of going out w my friends. But now i go to class and go out with my friends witho

Guys, my heart actually hurts from the before photos. It reminds me of how low i was emotionally and mentally. it's crazy how clearing my skin has turned me confident and dare i say happy again. if you are going through this or decide to do accutane, do it. It's worth every second to get me where i am today. Today my skin is completely pimple free, only dark spots remaining. I couldn't be happier!

Day 100

I guess i was thinking my skin would be clear by day 100, but here we are still consecutively breaking out on my chin and cheeks. I am lucky with my symptoms and dryness though because i know some people get it bad.

Day 81

honestly an okay day. lots of red spots and scars from me picking. My lips aren't overly dry- i do still religiously apply aquaphor like every 15 minutes so i think that's my gods send. no new symptoms or anything, my eyes aren't burning dryness anymore
