Day 7



Day 7

My acne has exploded on my face and it hurts to touchL It’s been 7 days since I started taking Accutane and my skin hates me for it! I’ve gotten at least 15 more cystic breakouts around my face. My face is red and angry. The other thing that is really starting to be noticeable is the dryness and flakiness of my skin, especially around my nose and chin/cheek area. It’s really off since my skin in general is still really oily, but all the moisturizer that I put on does nothing for my flaky skin. That was until my brother recommended the Cetaphil moisturizing cream. I slather this stuff on at night and it really helps with the flakes, so in the morning I can put on my make up with looking scary. Lol.

Let me just say that I am not rough with my skin when I cleanse and moisturize.

In the morning I use the following

  • CeraVe Foaming Facial Cleanser
  • Witch Hazel (as a toner)
  • Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream ( If my skin is looking really dry)
  • Simple Replenishing Rich Moisturizer (if my skin is not so flakey)
    • EltaMD UV Clear Broad-Spectrum 46 Sunscreen

    At night I use:

    [*]CeraVe Foaming Facial Cleanser

    [*]Witch Hazel (as a toner)

    [*]Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream ( I really slather this on in thin layers to make sure is really absorbed in)

I don't have pictures yet but I think I will be taking some soon. I'm fine with writing about my acne but it's different having pictures for the whole world to see.

I didn't fell comfortable showing my face until it was clear of stress. I had before pics from two years ago so I was able to put together a photo montage. It is fun, now, to look back and see how far I've come.Peace!
