Day Ten, Round 2 Of Accutane 6 Years Later



Incredible. My skin looks almost perfect. As mentioned before, my breakouts weren't major and this is my second time on accutane (the first time was 6 years ago when I was 19 and had horrible cystic acne).

No major dryness, but I started a serious moisturizing routine at least 1 month before I even started accutane due to my previous experience with the drug.

Here are the products that I am using and frequency:

-Cetaphil face wash (morning and evening)

-Clinique Moisture Surge Intense skin fortifying hydrator gel-creme (in the morning)

-Clinique "all about eyes" eye cream (morning and evening)

-Clinique Moisture Surge Overnight Mask (evening)

-Aquaphor (for lips all throughout the day, before bed, and in the middl elf the night if I wake up)

-Dr. Dan's Cortibalm (alternated with the Aquaphor throughout the day)

-Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula (body lotion in the morning)

-Cetaphil Moisturizing Creme (for body before bed)

-Refresh Liquigel Lubricant Eye Gel (after waking up, before bed, and in the middle of the night if I wake up

-Aveeno body wash

-Marrocan Oil hair masks (twice a week, but I have bleached hair, so I'd do this even without being on accutane)

-La Roche-Posay Anthelios SPF 60 (in the morning)

-CVS dry skin therapy hand cream ( when needed)

I make sure that my face is slightly damp before I apply any moisturizer - that seems to help with absorption.

I have been make sure I eat a breakfast with a decent amount of fat in it when I take my accutane in the morning, and drink plenty of water during the day.

A lot of the products on my list are a little pricey, but after taking accutane 6 years ago and finding that a lot of drug store moistures didn't do the job I found it was worth it to spend a little more on quality products.

I am noticing that I'm kind of losing my appetite since being on accutane this time, which isn't very good since I'm on the thin side to begin with - so hopefully this side effect isn't long lasting.
