African American Accutane day 17



So I'm no longer going to be a voyeur and I feel like it's only fare that I start a blog. I'm kinda off the cuff so this might not be the place to post this but I'm sure you guys and gals will get me pointed in the right direction.

Who I am: I'm a 30+ African American woman with zits that I never want to see again!

Skin type: Combination -Oily forehead, nose & chin and dry everywhere else (Until Tane & now just DRY-LOL)

Days on Accutane: 17

Trouble areas: mostly lower half of my face back and chest.

Vitamins/Supplements: Omega 3, FlaxSeed, Super B-Complex & Echinacea plus vitamin C

Water: At least 1 gallon daily

Face wash: CeraVe

Moisturizer: Cerave/ Shea Butter

Toner: None. Should I?

Side affects: Skin discoloration :( , dry skin, dry lips, hardened stool & the consequences thinning hair and extra cracking in knees (I'm an athlete so cracking comes with the territory).

I will continue to update this as a way to document my progress and side affects (not sure if I should say effects here).

Join me on my journey feel free to comment and help and laugh and cry with me along the way. I'll try to keep it interesting but in the days that it's not - Sorray (please say it out loud and if that doesn't make you laugh then say it again)

Also have to ask my doctor what's the hard limits on adult beverages :( ... Next month I really planned on getting it in for at least 2 days. Does anyone know ;) ?
