My Roaccutane Diary

Hey here is another picture of my skin now and one when I started so that you can compare. I still have a few red marks but they are fading. Hope everyone else is getting on OK with their roaccutane if anyone has any questions I'm more than willing to answer them. Lara

Here is my skin at start

Hi! I am on my 18th day of Accutane (claravis ...is anyone else on this brand) 80 mg/day. I'm really trying to figure out this generic thing. I know it's supposed to be the same give or take a few altering side affects. When I asked my derm, she said the generic is fine and unless I've been on the generic a few times and still am not getting long term results --then we could try the real stuff. Ahhhhh!!! I really want to get this right the first time. Any comments on the integrity of the generic stuff? Anyone's derm have a strong opinion on this? Maybe I'm just neurotic and paranoid that I'm not treating my acne with the BEST stuff possible. Anyway, any comments would be much appreciated. thanks, B

I didn't really have one but i suppose this is what i did:-

1.) Took Roaccutane in morning

2.) Exfoliated skin

3.) Put on eucerin dry skin (5%urea) moisturiser

4.) Put on make up

5.) Washed makep off with soap at end of day

6.) Put on eucerin (5%urea) night cream

Thats it. :D

But is it suitable to exfoliated skin while on accutane? it's hurts, doesn't it? morever, there are still some acne

But ur skin is really nice~! :razz:

I didn't find it hurt at all and it removed all the dry skin that was forming when on roaccutane. It was one of the best things i did especially when my acne was really bad.
