Day 265--The Last Week



I have been 100% clear for more than a month. It's probably been 6-8 weeks since I've had anything even resembling a pimple.

My energy has been down lately. My joints ache--especially my heels. However, my skin is actually significantly less dry than it was. I have been wearing sunscreen everyday. I can tell that my face would burn after just 10 minutes in the sun if I allowed it to. My "scars" are still healing. Maybe they will never go away completely. I've been applying Mederma Gel every night and will continue doing so. My goal is to someday not need to wear any makeup to cover up my spots.

So far, I do not regret taking Accutane. The confidence I feel now is something I've never had before. I feel so much gratitude.

I only have one week left on Accutane. I've been really anxious about finishing up my treatment. I can't wait for the dry skin and lips to be over. But honestly, I'm also a little afraid of finishing.. What if my skin just goes back to breaking out again? I don't know what I'll do.

Fingers crossed.

Try Ortho Tri-cyclen and spironolactone. I am 100% clear using these. That is, if you breakout after your course is over. Good luck!
