1 week post accutane!



So ive been off accutane for 1 week now, and been using my prescribed differin cream every second night.

My skin is still clear, and my lips are now back to 80% normal.. loving it. Corners of my mouth are returning to normal colour (thank god! lol)

I cant believe its over.. it felt so long when i was on it, but looking back 4.5 months flew.. time really does get away from you.

I feel sad when i think back of all the good times ive missed out on these last 2 years .. so many places, birthdays, occassions i didnt go to because of my skin. Even last christmas over my cousins i didnt go to - bahh bad times. And now i really think its over.

I have a beautiful new girlfriend, i feel comfortable with how i look, and i can go out and enjoy life again..

Anyone thinking whether to use accutane or not, read up on it, know your info and what you're getting yourself into. the last 4.5 months were tough! .. physically, mentally, and emotionally.

But if your acne really bothers you to the extent its taking over your life and all other options are exhausted, dont hesitate to do something about it.


I feel sad when i think back of all the good times ive missed out on these last X years.I am done too, bit worried about cummulative dose though. Its nice going outside/to store and not spending minutes to rate my face. Great not waking up with zits. Great coming back home knowing theres nothing new, just tired skin that needs some care and sleep.
