Day Dunno - Accutane Or Clearogen/skincare Routine



So after seeking a second opinion from my trusted GP he advised not to go on Accutane next week. I explained to him that all the listed side effects I currently experience so imagine what it would do to me... I get flaking skin (which has calmed down since coming off epiduo), dry lips, joint pain and not to mention a stressful job. I Know I know Im scared and trying to talk myself out of going through.

Funnily enough in the past month my skin has really started to clear. I'll post my current skincare routine below. I've also made some lifestyle changed which I feel have contributed to this.

After being on antibiotics and epiduo for 6 months I am surprised that coming off it was the best decision.

I'm still in 2 minds about Accutane ill be seeing another derm in April. I'm hoping by then that I have had considerable improvements and won't have to go.

So my current skincare routine, here goes -


Cetaphil cleanser (with Foreo Luna Mini)

Clearogen toner (part of the 3 step)

Cetaphil moisturiser ...primer, foundation etc etc


Biore charcoal cleanser

Clearogen foam cleanser (with Foreo Luna Mini)

Clearogen toner

Clearogen sulfur moisturiser

Twice a week - Aztec secret Indian healing clay mask

Daily ginger and turmeric tea

Evening primrose oil

Viridian high five multivitamin & mineral formula switched to these from zinc

Daily berries nutribullet

I've also been using the body shop vitamin E mixed with aloe night cream I can't really comment as its only been 2 days but my skin feels hydrated... No cysts at the moment just tiny little pimples (2 of them)

I'll also post a couple pics of December 2014 and January 2015 I feel the improvements are down to the Clearogen hmmmmm I do want to add that the first pic was taken I was erm PMS'ing
