Accutane Day 40



Pill #40 tonight.

So, nothing much new to report. I returned from my trip last night and the plane ride did terrible things to my skin. All the pimples became inflamed again and I now have 3 new whiteheads on my forehead and a new pimple on my left cheek. Ugh. When will I get to be one of those lucky people who can get on a plane without worrying that a massive pimple is sprouting in some conspicuous place on their face? Plane rides are bad enough.

I went straight to bed when I got home. I didn't pick. Just washed my face and moisturized. The pimples were certainly a little less inflamed this morning but still very much there.

I wish I could feel more optimistic, but things are moving so slowly and I still look terrible. I continue to struggle to find a good daily moisturizer that isn't too drying or too greasy. It's a no-makeup, hide indoors all day kind of day, so hopefully this will give my skin some time to rest.

It's already been 4 packs of Accutane. When will I start seeing things improve????

Hey,Have you tried Cliniques Dramatically Different Moisturiser? It really is good, absorbs nicely but has enough moisture.I follow this with Clinique Superdefence SPF25 which really gives a good base for make up and provides all day comfort!
