I'm finally clear. Almost completely. The only thing left at this point is the scarring and uneven complexion to take care of. I need to find a fast-acting, scar-erasing and skin smoothing product, stat. I'm using a couple currently; they're all-natural and are working fantastically, so maybe I'm just impatient. Progress, either way. I want to get waxed so badly, but I don't want my skin to rip off with the wax. Oi. Accutane.
My oiliness is gone, but I still have huge cysts on my face, mostly my cheeks. They're painful and always come to a head. I haven't had these big cystular-type zits for a couple years now. The are SO uncomfortable, and you CAN'T hide them. Damn, 3-Dimensional acne. Like I mentioned in my last post, I started a new diet and I've started applying a mineral foundation in place of a tinted moisturizer. I don't know if either of these things are helping, but this ultra-fiber diet is making me a
I started using Korres Wild Rose Mineral Foundation today instead of a tinted moisturizer; I think this is going to work out much better for what I'm trying to accomplish. It's not as drying as Bare Escentuals mineral make up, and it doesn't look as terrible when it gets caught up on dry skin. I'm thinking my using of the tinted moisturizer was only promoting a perfect environment for infection-causing bacteria. My skin was MUCH less oily today; I almost had no oil, even after the late night. It
It's been exactly two weeks since I began taking 40mg of Claravis daily. My face gets tingly and itchy as if I were on some sort of narcotic (experience from post-surgery prescriptions, terrible stuff). I take the sensations as indicators of the medication working its magic. My face has been super oily for these past couple weeks. Disgusting. But it seems to be lightening up; I'm just using Ole Henriksen Vitamin Plus now as a moisturizer, the other stuff (First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream) was
Today my skin seems better, but there's still a lot of oil compared to a normal person's skin. The current infections are beginning to dry up and only a couple new zits have erupted. I can't wait until this stuff starts working to its full potential. My migraines have subsided and I can now sleep much better, though I still am experiencing a bit of insomnia. Each time I fall asleep, though, I can only describe it as a coma; I'm sleeping intensely, no waking, but I still dream my typical, v
Last night was brutal. The migraines (headache and incredible nausea) coupled with insomnia has been getting worse the last two nights. I called the pharmacy and they said that I could take OTC pain killers with my RX, which I already knew but I was worried about the use of NSAIDs increasing the possibility of gastrointestinal damage. The pharmacist also mentioned that there was an adjustment period of a couple weeks, but if the migraines and insomnia continue that I should contact my doctor and
When I say script, I of course mean prescription. I am on my fourth day of my first 30-day prescription of Claravis, or what most simply refer to as "Accutane", though Roche has stopped producing Accutane due to the popularity of generic brands. So far, I've seen no difference though many report dry skin within the first week. I don't know why I'm not responding as quickly because I'm typically very sensitive to chemicals. I introduced myself about a month ago upon my first labs for the Is
