Today is my seventh day of Accutane! The aches, headaches, tiredness, stomach aches, etc. have mostly seemed to go away. it was probably just my body reacting to the new medication. I have read that after you have had 120 mg of Accutane is when it really starts working, so yesterday would have been the day. I feel like my skin overall does already look significantly better. I only have two new pimples, but they are the deep red cysts that take forever to heal, and have probably been waiting to come to the surface for a long time. The two of them are kind of joined together to make a super pimple that is huge and hurts like hell. It's whatever though, things could be much much worse and my skin is starting to look much better!
I am a little bit concerned that I am starting my women's issues on Sunday, and that the hormones that come with it may make my skin explode (as it typically does). I've been having cramps this past few days, and it is very uncomfortable, I may skip it this month..My skin is drier than normal (it is always really dry, but now it is flaking a bit more) so perhaps it won't be that bad. I am just worried that because I am so dry, my skin may start trying to make oil to make up for it. Is it okay to keep applying moisterizer? Should I even wear makeup? it looks okay initially, but a few hours later it looks kind of crusty and not appealing...perhaps I should switch back to using a powder or something that won't flake as much as concelear....
It would be amazing if my skin would be partially healed when I go home in like 3 weeks. It would make me sooo happy! (and my Mommy who has been such an amazing support through this horrible skin condition)
Manifesting beautiful, clear, sparkling skin!
