Accutane Round II, Week 2 Summary

Fiveby5ive

218 views

Recap: 20mg in the morning; 30mg in the evening. Female, 32, cystic hormonal acne. Second time on Accutane.

My skin hasn't improved at all, in that there is still a stead influx of breakouts, consistent with before I started the medication.  What has changed is that the breakouts are far less painful and shrink more rapidly. I can have a massive cyst form on Day 1, and by Day 3 it's already on its way back down. My oiliness has remained consistent with pre-Accutane, so I continue to use my Anthony glycolic facial cleanser and witch hazel toner. I'm also continuing the use of Drunk Elephant l-ascorbic acid to reduce redness and wrinkles.  As an aside, it is just my favourite thing that I'm battling acne and wrinkles simultaneously. 

Otherwise, no side effects - dry lips excluded.
