As you know, I didn’t make the decision to go on Accutane lightly. I weighed all of the pros and cons, and I felt that if I went on it for five or six months, I’d have clear skin.
It’s month 2, and I do not have clear skin.
Now, I don’t have side effects, and I’m thankful for that. My already-high cholesterol actually decreased this past month (probably thanks to the Chia I’ve added to my diet). I haven’t had mood swings or digestive issues. My lips are a bit dry, but it’s winter, and that’s to be expected.
But my skin? Is not clear. I have new breakouts daily. And now I can’t spot treat them. I can’t use Retin A. I can’t use BHAs.
I’m frustrated and dejected.
For those of you coming over to this post from Google, read all of my Accutane stories – it got better! A LOT better!
