I've noticed that too... Not much we can do...

Oh and btw hair always grows faster in the summer so it could be because of the high temperatures!

Everyone is different though. So you shouldn't be too worried about it.

Nothing is forever.

Yeah, just like accutane is unable to suppressed acne forever. For most at least.

Oh trust me I know nothing is forever, not even accutane. I know I will have zits even after accutane but the severity and number seriously matters. i'm ok with breaking out but not the way I have been for 10 years.
