Day 28 Wow, one month down! It's been about two weeks since my last update and have to say it's been smooth sailing. Skin: I have a few random small white heads pop up here and there but they quickly leave. I've managed my dry skin very well. The combination of Jojoba oil and La Roche moisturizer Iâ€™m using has worked! Just twice a day and my skin isn't dry at all! I got my aquaphor and even mixed it with a dark lip gloss so now I have a pretty pink aquaphor lip balm, I apply fa
Day 14! Two weeks in! Today was my last day of only taking 40mg, from now on I'll be taking 80mg every day. Skin: No major new actives, a few small white heads around my chin, but nothing crazy. I was however examining my forehead very closely, you know when you get right up to the mirror and could basically kiss it. My pores look like they are larger and full of gunk, but only noticeable that close. My lips continue to be dry, I had a first date on Sunday and almost panic
Day 11! It's funny, when I read everyone's logs they kept saying how fast the time went. During the first couple days of taking Accutane I thought time was crawling and this course would seem like forever....but here I am already at day 11! I'm beginning to lose track of days! I'm taking 80mg today. Just took my first pill with breakfast. I really look forward to each pill and when I pop it I feel happy.....my happy pills! Skin: no new actives! Old pimples seem to be drying
Skin on my face is a bit drier today. Overall though my face is looking pretty good, the breakout on my forehead that I got pre-accutane is improving and clearing up. I still feel like I'm going to get a breakout on my chin.....hoping that I don't. I'm not doing very well with trying to drink less often. We just had a long weekend and I was out each night. Then last night was supposed to be a quiet night of Olympics but I got offered a free ticket to a concert with some friends. The g
One week! Today I am upping my dosage. Took 40mg in the morning and will take another 40mg at night, then tomorrow I'll flip back to 40...so it evens out to 60mg/day for the next week. Skin: looked a little red today, almost like my skin was tanned (I'm usually quite pale). I've had a few small white heads pop up on my chin area, nothing major but I do feel like it may get worse. No noticeable change in dryness I'm still taking all my supplements and trying to eat well.
Day 3/4 Well both day 3 and 4 have gone by and not too much to report. Still taking 40mg/day, plan to up it to 60 come tuesday. I'm going to take 80mg Tues 40 wed, 80mgh Thurs etc... for about a week. No new cysts.....random whiteheads are still there but don't seem to be getting worse. My plan is to be as proactive as possible and keep myself nice and moisturized. I have begun to amass a wide variety of moisture products. La Roche Posay Nutritic for my face, and two of their chapst
Day 2 My face looks a little red and I did notice some slightly dry skin, but could possibly not be the Accutane. My back is sore today, but I know that's related to the Yoga that I did yesterday. Blemish wise, lots of little pimples on my forehead and other random places on my face which started last week, not usual for me. Otherwise just some healing cysts on my cheeks. I was trying to find Aquaphor healing ointment for my lips but nor luck so far, I found the original formula but
I'm a 27 yearold female with what I would consider to be mile/moderate unpredictable acne. I never know when I'm going to break out, where I'm going to break out or with what type of pimples. It's rather frustrating and I'm sick of it, I shouldn't have to deal with acne at 27! When I was a teenager I had horrible acne, mostly on my forehead, and went on Accutane. I was about 15 at the time and believe I was on 60mg a day (around 5'7 and about 110lbs). From what I remember I had really d
