“Courage is not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it”
Hello my lovelies!
It’s time for round two of my Accutane updates! A lot has definitely changed over the past week. The most notable change being that I went from one 20mg tablet, up to two 20mg tablets, bringing my dosage for the rest of the month’s supply up to 40mg. Doubling my dosage has brought many changes to my skin for this week’s posting, and you might even be able to see some differences like I am!
Let’s Get Started:
Day 7 –
Overall, my skin started to appear far less red and irritated. My practically nonexistent pores had started to shrink even more, and my scarring has started to fade ever so slightly.
Day 8 –
The redness is continuing to go down drastically now, with only my active acne spots showing any significant redness. I started to feel slightly drier, but nothing that wasn’t tolerable.
Day 9 –
In a way, my skin looks worse in this picture, but it’s also when I began to significantly dry out. The redness is still only significant on active breakouts, which increased slightly at this point.
Day 10 –
Peep that big nasty breakout in the right picture. For comparison, that’s what my acne used to look like ALL THE TIME; red, deep, and painful. Imagine that all over your face. This is also the day I introduced my Sunday Riley Good Genes Exfoliant back into my nighttime routine, which will create even more noticeable difference in the next pictures.
Day 11 –
My bigger breakouts have finally subsided, and it’s mostly just leftover hyper-pigmentation and receding acne spots. I felt VERY dry compared to how my skin usually feels, and slathered on as much moisturizer as I could. I wore makeup this day and probably could’ve blotted my forehead at least once, but the rest of me was pretty much a desert.
Day 12 –
Excuse the eye mask patches by the way. I think that there’s a huge noticeable difference in my acne at this point, so I think it’s safe to say that the 40mg dose is working! This is definitely the day I felt the driest yet. My chin and surrounding mouth area felt super tight and slightly uncomfortable, but nothing unbearable.
That’s all I have for you guys today. Please remember to like, comment, and subscribe, it really helps me out. Also don’t forget to have a wonderous Wednesday!
