Month 2 of Accutane

Month 2 of Accutane

I think this calls for a celebration!

I went to my doctor three days ago, and finally, she said my skin is doing good. No more active acne and she told me that she will no longer change the dose of Isotretinoin. I took 20mg on my first and second month and she said it is the lowest dose but my skin reacted to it positively. I will be back for a check-up in four months!

Seeing improvements in two months is incredible. I still have acne marks but I don't care because this is so much better than seeing my red bumpy face. Acne marks will fade over time. 

Again, I was extremely dry and this time it becomes itchy. My skin on my nose and cheeks was micro-peeling. I was using the prescribed Hypo-Liquid Soap by my dermatologist as a facial wash, I have been using this since Day 1 and I am telling you it is not enough, so I use Celeteque Facial Moisturizer of their "Hydration" product line. It is non-comedogenic so that I won't be worried to get clogged pores. So for my body, I was using Dove Soap Bar and it does its job.

Now, I receive compliments about my skin and how good looking it is than my before-Accutane-skin. It gives me reassurance that in time my skin will be fresh and good as new. I am getting my confidence back since I can go out now, even without a make-up. Seriously, I am tired hiding my true skin so hopefully, when I finish this treatment, my skin will be better.

What do you think on my journey? If you are suffering from acne feel free to leave a comment and share your experience.
