    6 Months After Accutane

    Hi amoxilworx No I just stick to a basic face wash and moisturizer Derm said definately NOT to use any treatments especially retin a for at least the next year because accutane leaves skin so sensitive. Using something like that whilst my skin is still recovering could cause damage. I'm not too worried about future breakouts. The odd spot doesn't worry me x

    6 Months After Accutane

    Hello hello! It's been six months since I last posted and since I took my last accutane tablets I am very happy to tell you all that my skin is beautiful!! I cannot believe how much more outgoing I am. I've always been a confident person but was a little held back because of the way my acne was. Now it's gone and I feel like I'm really in my own skin. Since finishing treatment I've had about 5 pimples. Only one at a time, they last a few days. No head on them, they're never inflamed a

    Only One Month Left On Accutane!

    katebait: hello! Don't worry at all! I didn't see any proper improvements until week 8 but then I felt at a bit of a standstill. I saw my term and he upped my dose a little which is when I saw mega changes. But even week 8 I was still getting new spots, intact I've got a little on my cheek now If you're worried just speak to your derm - best thing to do and don't panic! good luck x
  4. Hello! Well I only have a month left on Accutane and my skin looks amazing Bit bummed about having to wait a year for scar treatment because it makes your skin so sensitive but I suppose I'll see a good difference in that year. Hopefully I'll see the redness reduce a lot Also I'm starting a Uni course in a few weeks, can't wait! Haven't studied for years so I'm nervous but can't wait so I'm all anxious now How are you all?

    Accutane Derm Appointment

    Hello hello Well I saw my term today and the appointment ended with 'Well I hope we don't see each other again' He's given me another month of 60mg and told me to finish what I've got left so I'll be done with accutane in less than 2 months!! He also said not to do anything for scarring for a good year after accutane but said in that time I should see a good improvement with the scars. What a brilliant day it is! Hope you're all good cf x

    Week Eleven On Accutane

    Hi yeah, if you read my blog you'll see about the initial breakout. It was pretty bad, good luck!
  7. Hello everyone and goodbye spots I had 2 new tiny tiny pimples the other day, one of my jaw and one in the middle of my cheek and today they have both gone. My skin is smooth and blemish free. No blackheads, pimples, spots or cysts. I've got an appointment with my derm in a 2 or 3 weeks and I reckon I won't be on accutane for much longer at all! Sadly I've got the flu at the moment but I've got work on New Years Day so I HAVE to get better by tomorrow evening... How are you

I bought myself an early Christmas present..

    Week Eleven On Accutane

    Hello You should stock up on really moisturising lip balms (I found a creamy one works better than a stick form) Also moisturise your face before makeup and put on loads at night! I found that my hands got really itchy because I don't moisturise after washing them so make sure you don't make my mistake Everything just gets dry.. that's the main thing really. Message me if you want any more info and good luck cf x

    Week Eleven On Accutane

    Hello Well this is definitely the cheeriest blog post so far.. My skin has NEVER looked so good!! It's smooth, and only a few active spots When I do get one and pick at it, the things just disappears within a couple of days! No spots on my chin at all for a while now, I've just got spots on the sort of frame of my face. How can I describe this better? One by my right ear and one by my right temple, but both are covered with my hair! Woohoo! Also. Couple on each cheek but oh wel
  12. Hello and what a late post this is! Nearly two weeks into a higher dose of 60mg and I am peeling! My goodness it's like my face is falling off. Of course as soon as I replaced my good moisturiser I'd ran out of (used a crappy one) it's not half as bad I've broken out a bit on my cheeks but that's clearing up now and my chin is smooth as silk My hands and arms are really itchy dry and red but im just putting on as much moisturiser as I can. Will update on Tuesday, sorry this one is

    Accutane Derm Appointment

    Hi! I had my derm appointment yesterday so let me tell you all about it I was weighed again and as I'm the same weight he said he was happy with the dose I'm on (40mg) and then we started talking about my progress and general feelings.. I told him how I felt at a bit of a standstill seeing no improvement for the past few weeks. Also that the side effects had all stopped apart from dry lips. After hearing that he wrote me a prescription for 8 weeks on 60mg a day!! Woohoo!! Just what I was h

    Accutane Week Eight

    It's that time again! Hello It's eight weeks today since I started 40mg and I can't say there's been much difference, I seem to be at a standstill. My skin is still incredibley smooth to touch but I'm still getting spots emerging... Remember when a few weeks ago when I told you how my nose was completely blackhead free and oh so dreamy? The pores seem to be refilling..UGH! To be fair any spots I pick do dissappear quite quickly but that's to be expected when started accutane so I'm

    Seven Weeks On Accutane

    This is definitely the best week by far! My skin is so so smooth an everyone is saying how good it's looking I've only had a few new spots - two medium and just a few tiny pimples that are hard noticeable! My skin in general is looking less red every day and it just feels so much better Side efffects wise my lips are just as they have been since I started the course, and I've meant to say so many times for people in the UK to use Blistex Intensive Moisturiser, it's such a good lip balm
