Day 2

Hey everyone. I really don't have anything to report. It was easier to take my second pill today so that is good. I know it's only day two, so I am not expecting anything drastic to be happening quite yet. My face feels maybe a litte bit dryer but that is it. I think I will update weekly or if something exciting happens:) I hope that everyone is just as excited about this journey as I am!

Good Luck Julie I am on Day 52 of Accutane and it is working. My advise be patient, breathe thru your initial breakout and buy Aquaphor for your lips. This is my third time on Tane and I wished I know about Aquaphor - I am on 80mg a day and my lips are totally tolerable.

Thank you for the kind words Maria:) I have definitely stocked up on the Aquaphor so I am ready to fight the dreaded dry lips. Ha ha. Day 4 is today and I am not seeing much happening except for tight skin and dry eyes. I can't wait to be as far along as you are haha:)

Good Luck! What products are you using whilst on accutane? I am on day 21, 20mg a day and have not yet purchased a moisturizer for the day, would you advise using one? I did buy a night moisturizer but i think it broke me out so discontinued use.. Also which aquaphor do you buy to use on lips, the healing ointment or the small tube specifically for lips? thanks, :clap:

Hey there! I am using Cetaphil face wash daily. I have been using Oil of Olay moisturizer for oily skin but I think it's a little harsh so I might try to find a gentler one. I would definitely recommend using one. I am on day 5 and my skin is starting to flake a little already. Get one that doesnt clog your pores (non-comodegenic? I can't spell haha) and you shouldn't break out from it. I bought the healing ointment in the jar. I found the small tubes just for your lips but they were just so expensive for what you get compared to the jar. And I am sure that they do the same exact thing. I bought these small travel jars that I filled with the Aquaphor and can carry around with me. It works great:) I hope all is going well for you!!
