Accutane Journey Day 35

mum44

722 views

I realised this evening that I did something today that I NEVER do... (and i'm aware that it may sound stupid) but i was expecting a delivery and I still didn't put any make up on..
Normally i'd at least be putting on concealer and a bit of powder for fear of opening the door and being looked at in disgust, I wouldn't usually even go to the bin bare faced incase I bump into a neighbour... i'm sure that my skin will once again get bad before hopefully the Accutane works properly but for the moment it is certainly clearer and definitely less oily, very happy :)

OMG deliveries coming when I don't have make-up on is the worst. thing. ever. I know I'm never gonna see that person again in my life and it really doesn't matter if they judge me... but I still just can't even. A bit of shame here, but I have purposefully not opened the door before in this situation, because I would rather have to drive to pick something up from the depot than open that door.
So I understand that this small thing is an achievement! Congrats.. I hope I'm there make-up-less with you soon, opening doors willy-nilly :)

I'm still not ready to be opening the door for deliveries.  Luckily, my packages are left on my porch when I don't open the door.  So, for now I am going to continue to hide.  Maybe after month 2 I will open it.

I found 2 more tubes of chapstick in my makeup drawer today.  I doubt either of them will work better than the other kinds I've tried.  My husband thinks I am crazy because I was so excited to find chapstick.  These dry lips are terrible!  The corners of my mouth are starting to crack now too.  I look like a clown when I apply my chapstick.  I seriously have it smeared all around my lips too.

I understand you 100% !!! Being 6 months in, I think that I could now open the door for a delivery but I remember just a few months back realizing when I started to be okay with just driving down the street without makeup when I used to apply makeup religiously. Its just so embarrassing, even when you don't know them. That stare.

And to the person who posted above me @ilovemypug chapstick stopped working for me by the first month. I think you should really start using either vaseline or what works best for me is aquaphor healing ointment. I honestly have to reapply every few hours bc of talking and eating, but it keeps me non-peely! Its also pretty glossy. I stopped wearing all other lipsticks for the time being but excited to start again next month hopefully!

Oh my God Thank you so much WittySock, ilovemypug and acneruinsmylife! It is soooo nice to know that other people understand! If I admitted that to anyone I know they wouldn't get it and say 'but you don't know them'...WE KNOW! 
This is why I love this site, it helps so much to know that there are other people out there going through the same insecurities and supporting each other... Thank you guys! :)

I know it's a late entry but I started on 20mg today and to hear it's not just me that can not answer the door to ANYBODY without make up, well it's nice to know.

Good luck! And that's the beauty of this site, you get to realise that all the things that you do, think, feel others do too. Acne can make you feel very isolated as well as knocking your confidence and it has helped me no end talking on here to people that have either been through the same or still are. Crossed fingers for great results for you! :)

Saw this come up in my notifications and suddenly realised I've answered the door with no makeup on 3 times in the past couple of weeks. Including the longer awkward one when groceries are delivered and they have to wait for you to unpack whilst making small talk. And less than 2 months ago it was basically my worst nightmare! Not saying my skin looks amazing or anything but hey, at least I can change my facial expression without anything breaking open and leaking (lovely I know)! It is amazing how much more comfortable with my skin I feel in such a short amount of time - and I'm still very early in my course. Thanks @Bentley.boo for getting me to look back at this , and lots of good luck with your course as well!

Oh my god... I know that changing facial expression and cysts breaking open and leaking soooo well! Isn't it just THE BEST feeling in the world to not be worrying about that happening all the time! :)

Thank you both, I bet the changes in general life feel so good. Things that people naturally blessed with nice skin just could not understand. Here is hoping!!
