Day 20 Having a good day, finally!

Karen L.


- Accutane day 20 on 20 mg.

- No new acne, 2 cysts from a couple of days ago. .

- No real side effects apart from dry lips.

I have encountered the strangest but most beautiful thing when looking in a magnifying mirror, normally something I would never ever do. Absolutely horrifying those magnifying mirrors yet I did and, the pores on my skin are shrinking!! They are so so tiny it's just stunning news for me :( You can see on my picture that my skin was oily, well that's history too. I had a long day today; go to school for exams, pass by my work to get some documents, then back home made supper, laundry etc. and when I finally looked in the mirror my make-up was still great, I wasn't shining at all.

So today is a good day, hope no more bad days are coming. Downside I still have those two cysts, they have become whiteheads. I'm not touching them though, to afraid I might do more damage. Tomorrow I have a free day so hopefully Friday they will be long gone.

I was wondering if someone has experiences with scrubbing while on accutane? My sister told me that if I gently scrub on the places where I don't have active acne the dead skin will go and so will my dry skin.

Good luck to all and enjoy the evening.

Love karen


I hope that the 'good' days will continue!!! I wish you the best of luck!About scrubbing... I would not recommend it, cause you skin might get irritated by it.
