So sorry that I haven't entered in a while! I suppose I've just been so busy with summer....
I would say my bout with accutane is going much better than last time. The only thing I've noticed is dryness and as long as I put on lotion in the morning/night and always have chapstick I'm good to go. I've also been drinking an insane amount of water so I suppose that's helpful. But seriously, I have to pee nearly every 5 minutes.
I actually was at my lovely dermatologist's today to get my second prescription, and it was a nice reminder that everything is going so freakin well. She did a few extractions which made my face look immediately better. She explained that although accutane works wonders, it can slow the healing process in other ways, which explains the hyper-pigmentation I'm experiencing. In some places on my face it appears as though there's still some zit-age but it's miraculously smooth. That would be hyper-pigmentation, the result of slow healing. Golly I learn so much stuff from having this crap! I just know that I'm happy that results are coming so quickly =) Restores my self confidence in wonders!
So really that's about it, I'm feeling pretty great about it right now. I'm up to 30 mg a day now, which will hopefully speed it up even more. Stay tuned!
P.S. thinking about getting bare minerals/bare esentuals after all of this is said and done. It's highly acclaimed and it's supposed to actually improve the skin after use. SO yeah tell me if it's been wondrous for you or if all those reviews are malarchy
