Accutane: Week 3



Well....I know accutane is starting to work. My skin just feels different altogether.

In just my third week of accutane, my skin is noticeably dryer & less oily -- I thought I would never see the day. I was out of town last week in sunny LA, and because I was busy -- my skin stayed mostly clear. I think that my worst habit is sitting in front of a magnified mirror and be disgusted with my skin. We're not perfect - if we were perfect, treatments would not exist...for anything.

I still have some cystic breakouts and blackheads seem to be the most pertinent. Is this sounding normal? My lip also is extremely cracked in the corner -- I think that's what's bothering me the most.

Right now I'm waiting for that clearer skin they told me I should see around month 2...I will try to keep posting but may do it as needed.

Happy healing! (:

& thanks for reading my rambles.

Thanks for saying "Happy Healing" because that is what we are all doing to some extent or other. We all have different hopes and dreams of clear skin and many of us are achieving our goals day by day. pill by pill. application after application of varied topicals. etc..
