Day 78

Hey! sorry i haven't updated in a loong time but that's because there haven't really been any changes at all in my skin, until recently ive had a small break out of pimples not like the cystic acne but i think thats mainly cause my exams have started and im stressing so badly, haha. ive recently had extreme dry skin on my face, like it peels off my forehead, nose and chin and its so disgusting if i dont moisturize and exfoliate! (i know ive not to exfoliate but seriously i cant help it!) w

Day 46

Day 46 already, its gone really quickly tbh! First off i'll give you the names of the creams and topics the hospital have given me, which are brilliant I would definetly recommend them. The first cream I use is normally on any part of your body that seems slightly drier than the rest or peeling a bit, called Dermol Cream. Second one is Epaderm and comes in a cream and an ointment, I find the ointment works better and I use them for really dry places like my elbows and sometimes my knees, works f

Day 10

okay its been over a week since i started roaccutane, and i feel dreadful:( but im already getting positive results! i have no active spots and i havent got a new spot for about 4/5 days which is a record for me! but my skin is so dry its looks terrible anyway so it doesnt really matter, my makeup looks nicer over big cystic spots than it does this dry skin, is everyone elses skin this dry? my whole body is incredibly itchy! but ive heard this is common because your body is getting dried
