My Accutane Experience - Month Two

I can't believe it has only been two months that I have officially been on accutane - it feels like so much longer! If you are new to my blog, you can see the start to my accutane experience here. Month two definitely came with more of the crazy side effects-

  • Severely Dry, Itchy Skin // Nothing new there, I'm finally going through a whole bottom of lotion though! (and getting through a full sized beauty product is one of the best feelings!)
  • Chapped Lips // Still there, still terrible. After literally sharpening my Maybelline Baby Lips down to a needle point, Carmex was recommended to me and I have been LOVING the brand. I have little tubes of it stashed all over the place!
  • Nosebleeds // Very, very slight nosebleeds occasionally. 
  • Dry Eyes // This has been in the last two weeks this has happened, but nothing that can't be fixed with some eye drops.
  • Dehydration // About the same, always drinking water!
  • Oil Production // I've noticed that my skin actually started getting oily again, so I used a lighter moisturizer and it went back to dry. I currently have 4 moisturizers I cycle through (its not as excessive as you would think believe it or not!)

My friends and family still says it is looking better each day, and I can honestly say my back is the clearest I've ever seen it! Definitely making progress!

If you have any questions or advice please let me know thanks!

Always, kTm
