Week 2 on Accutane

I finished my second week of accutane a few days ago and my skin is blemish free! It’s been years since I’ve had not one spot on my face!

My skin hasn’t broken out in over a week now but I’ve noticed that in certain lights my skin does look more uneven and my pores look larger. I’ve read from other people’s blogs that their pores became less visible after a few months so I’m hoping this happens with me too. 

My lips and skin aren’t as dry anymore so I haven’t felt the need to use moisturiser this week or apply as much lip balm. I feel like when one symptom goes away another appears, as my eyes are starting to hurt and feel quite dry now. So far I feel quite lucky with my experience, I’m only on a low dose at the moment so I hope things continue to stay this way when my dosage increases.

Hey! I took accutane for NINE MONTHS. It was crazy and by the end, I was very very dry and left with gnarly acne scars. I do however believe that it really got rid of my acne. I had severe cystic acne and one year has passed and I barely break out! I can almost say it cured my acne. When I increased my dose of accutane about two months in, I had the worst acne I've ever experienced. I would recommend using aquaphor on your lips and cera ve on your skin. Trust me, as a seasoned victim, those two were my saviors. Good luck!

Hey!
9 months sounds tough.. glad to hear that it really does work long term and I haven’t just wasted all my money haha. My acne is more moderate so I’m hoping the breakout won’t cause scarring. Thank you so much for the advice, I’ll deffo give those things a try:)
