Day 30.... Progress!

Hi, It's been a while since my last blog so thought I'd update today. It's been 30 days (well over actually but my derm messed up my appointments so I've had a 4 day break from the roaccutane) and I have my first follow up appointment today where I'll have my blood test and pregnancy test as well. Apart from the dry lips, which I mention a lot, and generally dry skin I have only really suffered with the occasional nose bleed and hardly any other side effects lately. My face is lo

Cetaphil...

WOW... Cetaphil... I literally don't know how I ever lived without this cream... It is the best I have used and keeps my skin hydrated. Yes, I am still using it 3-4 times a day but it lasts longer and feels good. It cost £10 but the tube is pretty big so hopefully it will last a couple of weeks. Face Update: Looking so much clearer... Had a breakout this week (have attached a pic) which lasted 2 days but compared to how long they would usually last (1-2 weeks) I am amazed at how quickly

I've Completed Week 1 On Roaccutane!

Hi again So, I've successfully completed week one on Roaccutane! I have to admit it's been a busy 3 days (long weekend) as we've had friends over and places to go so we haven't stopped at all... but I think this is the key to success! Every time I get up and don't have many plans, these are the times I feel low and want to sleep constantly. However, when I am busy and surrounded by people I feel OK, kinda normal. So my advise is to keep busy and not let your mind go into overdrive

Day 5

Woke up today feeling absolutely fine and I'm pretty sure it is due to the fact that I treated myself to an eyelash lift last night which has boosted my confidence a bit. The beauty therapist I saw last night was on roaccutane for 18 months and it was great to actually speak to someone face to face, who had amazing skin, who could talk me through their experience with the drug as all my friends have flawless skin. Sure, she was brutally honest about the side effects but having seen how she

So Far...

So... I'm 26 (27 next month) and I have suffered with acne rosacea on and off for the last 10 years. After my last breakout which left my confidence in shatters I decided that enough was enough and to seek help from a dermatologist instead of my local GP. After an 11 week wait to see the dermatologist, my acne had cleared up due to the course of antibiotics I had taken and I walked into the consulting room and was met with what can only be described as confusion as my skin did not show any
