So I've been on Accutane for 5 days now.
I don't know if it is my strict moisturise everything routine, but I haven't had any dry lips, dry face. In fact the only side effect I have had is a headache once!
I take my 50mg in the morning with three weetabix, skimmed milk and lots of sugar. I'm going to start taking fish oil supplements with my breakfast because I don't think there is enough fat in my breakfast to make my 50mg as effective.
My skin however looks great. I came into this with relatively clear skin and I still get a spot a day but they are what I call white black heads and when I clean them out they may leave a red mark the size of a pin head so basically they are pretty non existent atm.
My skin regime goes as this:
Murad exfoliating gel.
Clinique Even Better moisturiser (this gently removes dark red scars as well and I can lather it on without worrying about a breakout)
I use Blistex on my lips three times a day and don't need to reapply chapstick.
I also use Aqueous cream up my nose.
E45 cream on my arms and hands.
And finally Murine eye drops for tired eyes.
I repeat this process in the evening as well.
I sometimes put some sudocream on dark areas.
Woah that seems alot when I read it back!!!
