Starting 3Rd Month On Accutane

TimeForAChange

439 views

So I've been super busy with finals like a lot of you probably. Havne't had that much time to get on here and read other blogs but I definitely will soon, it's always interesting to read what other people have to say about their own experience on accutane at the same time I am.

So ummmmm, I kinda had a little breakout when I was bumped from 40mg to 80mg a day, but that stopped. I keep getting new pimples in one area which is one side of my face like near my side burn sorta at ear level (im retarded at explaining things). Yeah its really annoying cause I seem to scar there the easiest than any other place and idk why I'm only breaking out there :/

I started drinking coffee to stay awake to study and immediately my skin has become extremely flakey, stuff really dries out your skin haha (Let me know if any of you have had this same problem!!!)

Umm this Vitamin E skin oil therapy ive been using at night as really helped fade some scars i think.

Other than that, my lips get really dry, burts bee is 100x better than aqua IMO.

To sum it up: Acne is noticely going down because I've been doing everything that makes me breakout bad such as eating unhealthy(pizza, fried foods, crap, junk, ect) barely sleeping (FINALS/STUDYING), smoking ciggs (STRESS), and even drinking some and my acne really is not bad at all.

Hope you guys read this and leave some feedback!!!!

yay! so happy to hear that the vitamin e oil is working for you too :) are you using the stuff from trader joes or did you find another kind?

But yeah i only wear aquaphor at night..it honestly just puts a thick mask over my lips so the skin just peels off in the morning anyways. I use blistex medicated lip balm and that works great.

I'm happy to hear that you're doing great! And hey, we're basically done with the worst part of being on accutane...GO US! It's all down hill from here...i hope!
