Here is another update on my Accutane experience, as with my last post I was on 40mg a day, but in week 5 my doctor upped my dosage to 60 mg a day, 30 in and the morning and 30 at night. And surprisingly my symptoms are actually better, though I’m not sure if that is because I’ve become accustomed to my new routine or if my body is just adjusting to the medicine.
My chapped lips have gotten much much better and I’m using less lip balm than I was before, or at least it seems that way. My skin is also incredibly clear, I only get about one or at most two blemishes at a time, and they heal very quickly.
My blackheads are pretty much nonexistent now, I’m not sure when It happened, but one day I was just taking a close look at my skin and I noticed that my pores were smaller and any blackheads I do have are very small and minimal. And my skin is just so much smoother! My makeup glides on so much easier and lasts much longer.
Overall the positive side effects far outweigh the ‘negative’ side effects I’ve been experiencing, and I’ve been really happy with my skin so far!
