Ok, so week one done! It was actually quite tougher then I had remember from the last time that I had taken Accutane. My face is really dry and so are both my eyes and ears. There’s definitely some flaking going on too. My forehead and cheeks feel like I was sunburned. Because of this, I switched facial moisturizers from Cetaphil to Cerave’s moisturizing cream. I’m only on day two of using this, so it’s hard to say if things will change from here. My fingers are crossed for that!
As for my acne, any that were present prior to starting Accutane, seem to be healing pretty quickly. I did notice a couple of new pimples yesterday, but by this morning, they looked like they were already shrinking.
Though the side effects were expected and with things seemingly getting better, I still think choosing to go on Accutane a third time is going to be worth it.
Thanks for reading this new entry of mine and I’ll be sure to provide another update in a week!
