“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit”
Hello my lovelies!
It’s been 17 weeks of these posts and if you’re like me, you’re about ready to git’er done soon. I’ve decided to condense down the pictures to two pictures, as the improvement levels are pretty stagnant by this point.
Speaking of stagnant, I did want to be open with you guys and let you know that while I have no regrets about going on Accutane, I am very underwhelmed overall with the progress I’ve made. I have seen people’s skin do a complete turnaround, pimple AND scar free, but while I do break out less and my scarring has faded slightly due to my own skincare, it’s getting hard looking in the mirror every day and hoping that today will be the day my skin turns a new leaf. I still break out, my scars still garner stares, and this is too expensive of a treatment in my eyes for only partial results.
I only have a month left before I have to stop, and my doctor has already inadvertently suggested that I could start again in the fall. If my doctor thinks my progress is sub-par, it’s really hard to try and keep a positive mindset and think that a miracle will happen in thirty days. I know that there has been real progress, it’s obvious based on my first two months alone, but if a medication meant for severe acne couldn’t rid my pesky-but-moderate breakouts, what does that say for others who have that severe acne?
I’m holding out on my last string of hope and will finish off my course, but I’m just getting tired of watching nothing happen for me anymore. Making these posts almost seems silly at this point, given that it’s just the same pock-filled pictures day in and day out. Maybe I’m destined to have acne. Who knows?
Let’s get started:
Day 90 –
I am turning red a lot more often that I have previously, but I attribute this to my skin developing more sensitivity. Even itching my arm produces a red spot for a while.
Day 94 –
My lingering breakouts are starting to recede, however the scarring is not improving much further, as the scarring still often appears quite red and obvious, almost like bug bites.
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 terrific Tuesday!
