So i've been on accutane for already 11 days!
I am still not experiencing any severe side effects, just the common chapped, dry lips and slightly dry skin. Also i've had no sign of an initial breakout (yet). Again this might be because of the antibiotic i'm on- Ampicillin 500mg twice daily. I've had maybe 2 or 3 very small active spots that have came and went in about 3 days, not even. I'm feeling pretty hopeful and this is probably the best i've looked in a long time.
So far my face still gets a bit oily, and i can still use my topical medication and acne face washes without drying out and my face being irritated. My skin actually feels very smooth but i've still got a bunch of scars and like i said, a couple small actives.
If my skin stayed how it looks fresh out of the shower all day, i would be very happy, but we all know half way through the day skin starts to shine and look pretty worn out, make up doesnt look fresh, and to me i feel like i just look unclean even though i showered 5 hours ago. It's so annoying, my friends can go like 2 days without a full shower and they still look brand new. if i did that i would look terrible.... but oh well one day.
My boyfriend left for San Francisco this morning for a skateboarding trip for 2 weeks. Even though i will miss him alot, my lips will have a nice break (: . And hopefully if my skin decides to freak out and have an initial breakout lets hope it is while he's away!!!!
Still it hasnt even been two weeks yet, it's still very early in my course but thus far i am satisfied. Yay!
