Accutane week 1



Should have started blogging from day 1, but basically heres this jist. I'm 17 years old and got prescribed roaccutane(accutane) for moderate facial acne and significant back and chest acne after differin/ benzoyl peroxide, tetracycline, erythromycin etc etc. Not to mention my expensive experimentations with clinique, acnefree(shipping from america may be cheap in wal mart but expensive to get to the UK), clearisil, garnier pure active and the famous pro activ.

Just about to finish week 1.

So far, I have experienced not a huge tonne of side effects. Mainly the usual dry lips, dry skin etc. I used to wash with clinique anti blemish foaming cleanser twice a day, now I cant even use it once without a flaky outburst. Also fell onto a radiator and my arm stuck to the radiator resulting in a 1st to 2nd degree burn, I don't know if this is due to accutane or the burn itself but it is huge and hearing that waxing will cause permanent scarring im sure this will. Also, I think I'm in the initial breakout stage because my skin is mental at the minute.

But basically I am obsessed with my acne and I mean OBSESSED, I think this is one of the reasons why I got put on accutane on the first place. I am being careful and taking biotin for my hair, oil supplements for joints, limiting drinking but going to a club every weekend this will be hard especially as a teenager in Britain (I know alot of people on here are USA) and drinking water.

I will keep this updates along with a photo journey!
