Its been quite awhile since my last post. Honestly, not a lot has been happening with my skin these past couple weeks. Its still looking pretty good. MUCH better than three months ago, before I started taking Accutane.
I had my regular bloodwork/check-in with the derm last week. She said that everything looks good and that I should continue to see improvements. I'm still projected to be done at 120 days, which means I'm over halfway there now. Woohoo! And she kept me at 60mg of Amnesteem/day.
Current skin condition:
-Dry and peely on my nose. I had a cold last week, and the constant nose-blowing mixed with the winter weather and the Accutane has led to my nose looking prety horrid right now.
-The patch of rough bumps on my chin is STILL a bit of a mess. It gets inflamed, then dries up, then peels, then feels smooth. I asked my derm about it last week. She suggested I try my best not to exfoliate or pick at it, even when its peeling. She said to treat it like a scab, and let it scab over completely and it should go away. We'll see.
-Very little oiliness on my face these days. YAY!
-Only two very small new actives in the past week (both on my chin). Otherwise CLEAR!
Current side effects:
-None other than dry lips and some fatigue.
Current products/skin care routine:
-Have started to use Olay Daily Facials both night and morning rather than face wash. Loving it. Makes my skin feel very soft and moisturized.
Have a good week!
