My Roaccutane Journey... Day 37



Day 37...

I don't know how to start today. lol

Well effects so far

  • peeling lips (o so sexy)
  • itchy and flakey scalp (using coconut oil with a few drops of peppermint and lavender essential oils)
  • lower back pain
  • dry skin over more of my body
  • headaches (I need to drink more water, havn't been drinking enough)
  • hands feel dry
  • face is oil free, yay!!
  • dry and light sensitive eyes

So I take supplements, vitamin c 1000mg a day, vitamin E 800iu a day, iron, vitamin B complex and I started taking zinc this morning. I have no idea if taking any of the above are helping. Lets hope so.

Eye drops for the dryness and sunnies for light sensitivity.

Surprisingly I feel strange without my usual oily chops. lol. My cheeks feel numbish and overal face feels dry. I'm a picker and I can find things to pick, which is bad! I have scabs on my cheeks and neck from my avid picking. Do really need to stop but I think its a habit now. I read on someone's log that she drinks water every time she picks, I'm going to try it. To counter the dry feeling face I use a moisturiser for dry skin with a drop of bio oil (now changed to wrinkle cream). I've noticed it's thicker and takes longer to soak in and my face looks sort of oily but not oily. lol. If you get what I mean. I like this though.

I've noticed the lines on my forehead are deeper. :(. To counter this from yesterday I bought Simple regenerist day and night creme with sp15 I add a drop or bio oil to this at night. The cream's are both super thick and take a very long time to soak in. Again I have no idea if this will help the lines in my forehead. Lets hope it helps.

I heard Accutane temporarily makes wrinkles a bit more visible, so you should use at least spf 30 moisturizer, I suggest Cetaphil or Neutrogena. And at the begging of Accutane you feel a bit dried out/tired, you get used to it. I hope you're one of the lucky ones and get results fast, good luck!

Thank you for the advice, I also use Simple spf50 after moisturising I have been using the spf before a long time before Roaccutane.

I am feeling tired, I forgot to add that to the list. lol

Thank you, I want the drug to work too, its worked for a lot of people. :)

I know what you mean. I don't even have to shower anymore because there's no oil on my face and it feels pretty dry and clean. I'm addicted to squeezing blackheads out of my skin which is bad according to my dermatologist! We all have bad habbits.

Yeah we seem to have the same addiction picking and squeezing our spots. lol.

To me the dryness doesn't make me feel clean, as my face is tight and uncomfprtable if I don't moisturise. Before buying the anti wrinkle cream I had to moisturise 3 times a day.

I hope your journey is going well?
