Accutane Day 17

piano36

1129 views

This month has been going by so slowly. While none of my side effects have been too bad, I am just so eager to start seeing results. I've been seeing a lot more blackheads lately, so I'm hoping that means they're being pushed up and out. I can't remember the last time I've seen my nose and chin free of those little black dots. I am still breaking out as I did before accutane, but I think the whole "cycle" is speeding up now, with more rapid healing.

The dryness is kinda annoying me with the flaky/dehydrated skin and the dandruff. There are some days that my skin isn't very dry, but in general it is seriously lacking some moisture. My mom heard about a new Neutrogena moisturizer with hyaluronic acid called the "Hydro Boost gel-cream," that's supposed to be for extra-dry skin. I'm trying it out now, so I'll update how it's working for me after I have more experience with it.

This entire update has sounded very depressing, but the past few weeks really haven't been, I promise lol. I've heard that the first month is the worst, and if that is true, then this treatment will be completely worth it because it honestly hasn't been as bad as I thought it would be.

Oh PS - My skin isn't red and sensitive as it was last week. It's all my normal skin color with the only red marks/discoloration being spots and acne scars.

When I did Accutane, the first month was somewhat hard, but it really takes a while to get into your system and purge the clogged pores underneath. The worst month is actually month 2 or 3
