5 months after accutane

I thought this was a pretty realistic representation of how my skin is doing 5 months post-accutane. This is the worst that it looks with no makeup, fresh faced. It's not perfect but I'm ever-so greatful for it. I love my self, my skin and my life more than ever right now. I know I've said it before, but I reccomend accutane to anyone struggling with severe acne. It saved my skin. Keep in mind, my skin could probably look a lot better right now. I rarely wash my makeup off (I need to get back to a routine of washing + moisturizing). And I've been drinking pretty often so I dunno, It could be better. But I'm happy

    you look great! I am at the beginner's stage and I hope to get to where you are right now in a couple of months... What was your dosage and how much do you weigh? I love your improvements!

    My dosage was 40mg for the first few months, and then I bumped up to 60mg at the end! I weighed about 125 during the process! Thank you so much. Glad I can help people through their experience. It was a really tough process but it goes by fast and its so freeing in the end.

    By the way, you're not the only one who gets severe acne out of nowhere (pointing at myself). How did you use the Manuka honey- as a mask or as a wash? How often did you use it? I have a jar at home and I've been washing my face with it after my BP wash, but I feel like it hasn't made a difference, so hopefully by applying it as a mask I get some results. Do you think it'd be beneficial for the Accutane-induced dryness?
    Thanks!

    Glad it worked for you, you look beautiful regardless. Accutane didn't work too well for me unfortunately, hopefully this madness will end some day.

    I use the honey as a 15 min. Mask and it worked really well for me!! I use all natural products on my face just because I feel like thats biologically what our skin needs. I get my cleanser and moisutizer at Lush! During accutane I used Cetaphil moisturizer just because of the severe dryness. It worked really well for me!! I also never tried to touch or pop any new pimples on my face. Try not to stress, it really helps A LOT. I know how hard it is not to obsess over it
