African American Accutane day 20

Glaminmotion

397 views

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 , SUPER dry skin on my face, dry lips, hardened stool & the consequences, thinning hair, joint cracking and a stiff neck today.

Good news!!!!! My face is at 80% of it's normal pigment :()) However I look like i've aged by 10 years because of the dryness. I'm using Shea butter and CeraVe um still not working. I'm going to get a facial tomorrow! It has to help :()) Mood is just indifferent. Haven't been motivated to get out and do anything but that's normal.

Hope all is well!!!

Just wanted to wish you luck, I'm also African American/30 (not a teen) and dealing with this horrible thing called acne. Not on Accutane but Tazorac but still want to lend some support.

Thank you so much for your support. Things are going very well on Accutane. I also did something that I really wished I would have started before taking the meds, I started doing asprin washes and masks. Research them here and give them a try.
