Day 6 Accutane log
Doing good so far. A little dryness on the lips and a few new pimples. So far nothing major. I have been feeling tired lately due to a chest cold but I am hoping it goes away soon. No aches so far as some have had. I hope my treatment continues without any big problems. I am very confident about this med so I haven't really even been looking at my skin. My skins texture seems to be improving with the cetaphil wash. I think some of my acne may be from the harsh washes I have been using. i would like to comment about a few other treatments that I have tried that worked some what and hopefully may help someone who does not want to take the accutane road.
The 1st one is tazorac. I use tazoroac about 1 1/2 months before starting accutane and saw major results until I ran out of the med and skipped about a week of using it. Tazorac is a great treatment if used on a regular basis. I would recommend starting at the .5 strength and increasing to the 1.0. Once my skin got used to it I would slather it on like crazy and it worked like magic . It did get worse before it got better but if you are patient you will see big results with taz ( I highly recommend for light to med acne ). I was only on it for a 1 1/2 months and was completely clear. By the time I ran out I was already set up for accutane so I just decided to take it once and for all.
On the fence about accutane give taz a try! It is the next best thing!
The seccond is one is BP.
I recommend to slather it on like crazy! lol If it is your first time using it just apply thin layer until your skin get used to it. Your skin will get dry just like with any acne med but it will go away when your skin get used to it ( about a week ). I figured this out way before i heard of the dans regimen. It works wonders if you use a lot of it. If you decide to go this route make sure you have like three tube of bp just to make sure you don't miss a day of application. Slather Slather Slather it works !Remember to use it at night too. It really does work if your acne is not too severe. Works best for light to moderate. I would also suggest applying a lip balm and remember not to apply close to the eye.
Use with a gentile facial cleanser because harsh stuff can cause irritation to the skin and acne!
Be careful around clothes because BP can bleach fabric!
I stopped using the methods Because I hate creams and have little to no time for beauty. I need a quick fix like a pill or I will suffer for ever. Plus I have a small baby and she loves to kiss my cheeks ( shes so cute ) . She gets sad when I say no no kissy mommy has pimple cream on her face! lol She throws herself to the floor and starts crying and it is so sad! She is so loving and she loves to give kisses.
I hope these tips were helpful! Good luck to everyone !
