Felt pretty down today. You know when your skin is extra tempremental and you have to walk past mirrors all day which remind you of that fact? Really wanted to get some shopping done today but decided to go home early. My skin is flaking so much around the bottom half of my face (spot-prone area) I've tried using a wet baby brush to get off excess flakes before putting on foundation, I've tried wiping gently with a cloth and using my fingers to peel it off but it doesn't work. Is this a moisturiser problem or an exfoliant problem? If I made sure it was covered thickly in moisture the night before would it be any better in the morning? Has anyone got any tips on how to remove dead skin whilst on accutane? Have I just abused the '?' button?
Had my Derm appointment this morning. She said she's really happy with my progress and said my skin's looking really good (it wasn't-foundation looked awful because my skin was so dry this morning, but it's nice of her to say anyway) She's keeping my dose at 30mg and said she might up it to 35mg next month and wasn't expecting to raise it any higher than that.
Have to go for blood tests in 2 weeks and I'm already nervous. I have a really bad phobia of needles and last time I burst out crying, and I never cry in front of people, especially complete strangers...embarrassing. Any relaxation techniques or tips on how to get rid of these nerves will be greatly appreciated! My phobia of needles is so strong that I'd rather them slit my arm or leg and get the blood from there, instead of them sticking a piece of metal into my vein.
Oh, and today I got a present from a nurse-A URINE POT! Now I can give my urine specimen before I even get to the hospital. My life is complete
How my skin is looking at the moment:
Amazed how quickly it has cleared up the clustered spots!
