Accutane Day 21!

Loz0908

1311 views

My life is hell at the minute!

I can't begin to tell you how dry my face is especially around my mouth. It's awful and hurts so bad. It's tight and cracked and I HATE it.

I have been using oil free neutrogena visibly clear but I think this is just iterating my skin even more now due to how many times I have to apply it. So I have just purchased some simple light moisturiser until my cetaphil facial moisturiser SPF 50 arrives.

My face is so red and stings when I use my cetaphil cleanser and the new moisturiser.

I have tried bio oil and E45, but none of these seemed to calm down the flakyness and dryness.

I used isotrex for 2 days morning and night and I think this is the cause of the severe dryness. I warn you DO NOT USE ACCUTANE AND ISOTREX TOGETHER. It hurts so bad :(

I just want a good moisturiser that won't clog my pores but keeps me mega hydrated.

Only time will tell....

YOU don't NEED OIL-FREE neutrogena,you need for dry skin. Since you have dry skin, you need some oils. Not oil free. It will make you face even MORE dry.

I would order Acne.org's Regimen if i were you, because the cleanser they have is AMAZING. Also, it will help with the clearing of your skin. You can be taking Accutane and Regimen and i think it will give you great results. I personally don't know, but i think. Also, you should buy like green tea and make like HOT green tea and pour into like a huge bowl where you can put your face in. BUT, don't do that. lol.

So boil hot water with green tea, and take a towel and wrap the towel around the back of your head and put your face near the steaming hot boiling green tea that's in the bowl. Hold your face there for like 15 minutes. IT's hard to breathe at first, but you'll get used to it. The steam from the tea will soften your pores and eventually unclog them. If feels good to the face, and makes it soft from the dryness that you get from Accutane. YOU should try it out and tell me if it works. Well i hope this helped. :) Blessings!

I bought the cera ve moisturizer CREAM for normal to dry skin. Works wonders on calming dry skin... And is pretty simple. I hate the cetaphil spf moisturizer :-/

I was having similar problems when i found this sample product on Etsy. I tried countless store bought products, but what I have found is that most of them contain some type of chemical or preservatives which always end up irritating my sensitive skin. I was skeptical to try the product on Etsy b/c the sample was only $1, but it ended up being the best $1 I've spent in a while lol. I've continued using it only a daily basis, following up with a few drops of jojoba oil, and my skin is looking & feeling soooooo much better

You need to look for non comedogenic, that's what it's called if you're looking for something that won't clog your pores. It will say non comedogenic on it.

Haha actually I do, all simple products are hypoallergenic and non comedogenic. I would look into the neutrogena naturals line if I were you, all their products work great and are as natural as possible. They even enlarged the ingredients on the back, because it's that safe.

Although I quit using any kind of skin care products completely, all I do is use lukewarm water in the shower and finish with colder water to close my pores, once you stop fighting acne it stops fighting back in my opinion, read my blog and you can see my full story. I literally cleared my skin just by not caring about it anymore.
