Starting to realise my skin is paying for all these medications

Recommended Posts

Right now I'm on accutane my second time, n I've been through it all, 4 or 5 different creams, 2 or 3 different antibiotics, accutane, face masks, even went to a skin therapist type chick who wanted to try n give me more creams so I didn't bother. She did say as I remember something smart "We want to try look after ur skin now so that its still good 10 years from now, otherwise you'll have really sensitive skin that will be allergic so to speak to condition changes".

Its just cold-snapped where I live n theres lots of cold dry wind, n I'm on 20mg accutane so my lips aren't chapping but they are getting fucked up by this weather. I've had split lips that turn into one of those cold-sore looking scabs two or three times this 1-month old winter, n now I've got split lips at each corner of the mouth and the top left quarter lip is completely split right to the middle and scabbing over. My skin pretty fucked up as well.

I'm starting to realise that at nearly 19 my skin is borderline unmanageable, and even when I outgrow my acne I'm still going to have probably major persisting skin problems from all these fucking chemicals and pills.

Not necessarily. The skin is amazingly recuperative. It is possible that your skin will just keep on getting better once you've gotten rid of the acne. Mine is...and I'm 40.
