Last night I washed my face, waited 10 minutes or so and applied a full pump and a 1/2 of the BP very gently. Waited for that to dry and spot treated with the AHA. This morning things are looking a little better. The new acne from yesterday is healing. Only one new active pimple that came yesterday afternoon, and is still there today on my upper lip. I applied a small amount of BP and moisturizer this morning and then applied makeup. I am hoping the Bp also helps with my oil, we will see...
I bought some 50mg Zinc and took my first dose last night. I am currently taking a prenatal vitamin, fish oil, hair, skin and nail, b-complex and a vitamin the hair clinic gave me. I have been taking vitamins for over a year and I am not sure if they have ever really helped with my acne but I never stop.
Post accutane hair loss update:
I have been going to a hair clinic for 2 months now for laser hair treatments to help with my accutane induced hair loss. I am starting to see results which make me super excited. My hair loss started in Sept of 2008 and is still happening today a full year later but I do see a big improvement.
Post accutane Pregnancy:
I have been TTC now for months. This month I believe I have a real chance of becoming pregnant since my husband has actually been home this month. I have heard of people having fertility problems after accutane but I pray that is not the case with me. If and when I get pregnant I plan on starting a blog on my progress and if accutane has any effect on my baby. This was something I was very concerned with and there is very little on the web about it.
Post Accutane skin:
Since accutane my skin is completely different and after almost 1 year post tane it has never gone back to its original state. Mostly the way my skin now heals, scars and the type of pimples I get is so different. Any little thing that appears leaves a mark of some kind behind. The pimples now seem deeper and never really pop able. Any cut i get anywhere on my body leaves a scar. Over all my skin doesn't heal as well. I am still scared of eyebrow waxing since my skin was torn from my face while on tane.
bye for now......
