50 Days post accutane  Cannot believe it has been 50 days since I finished taking accutane, it has gone so fast. My skin is still far from perfect as I still have scars and pigmentation but it has been doing great! I do keep getting blocked pores especially on my forehead. Some days my skin looks better than others. I still need to apply lip balm and eye drops every day or two ⠀ #roaccutane #accutane #isotretinoin #acnescars #scars #dermatology #nofilter #acnetreatment #acneproblem #accutanejourney #progress #clearskin #acnecommunity #acneproneskin #postaccutane #postroaccutane
This is the only mask apart from moisture bomb mask sheets that I use as I know they won’t break me out and it does the job! I wouldn’t recommend using it if you’re on accutane or just finished as it can be quite harsh and makes your face very red if left on until completely dry. I usually let it dry more on my t-zone as that’s my most oily area and i take it off my cheeks after about 5 minutes. I’ve noticed when I use this the next day my face isn’t as oily ⠀ #aztecclaymask #claymask #facemask #skincare #mask #aztecsecret #aztecsecretindianhealingclay
My skin has days where it gets more oily than others. I do have some blocked Pore on my face. I’ve had so much more energy since finishing accutane. I’ve had problems with hypoglycaemia for about a year now and the past few months it has gotten worse, I’m not sure if accutane has made it worse as it happens almost every day now and last night I woke up twice in the night because of it ⠀ #roaccutane #accutane #isotretinoin #acnescars #scars #dermatology #nofilter #acnetreatment #acneproblem #accutanejourney #progress #clearskin #acnecommunity #acneproneskin #postaccutane #postroaccutane #hypoglycemia #hypoglycemic
I have started to get some oils back in my face now, I washed my hair yesterday and it’s quite greasy but not as much as before I started accutane but I think it’s going to get worse. I’ve only been applying lipbalm once or twice a day and hardly need my eye drops now! I have been using and oil control face wash which I think is helping 🤔 I’m still using Aussie miracle moist for dry hair but I am going to invest in a surfate free one for oily hair. I’m still loosing hair the same as I were on accutane so if anyone has any solutions to get it thick again please let me know 😊 - #roaccutane #accutane #isotretinoin #acnescars #scars #dermatology #nofilter #acnetreatment #acneproblem #accutanejourney #progress #clearskin #acnecommunity #acneproneskin #postaccutane #postroaccutane
2 WEEKS post accutane Still no sign of oily skin/hair, although my lips aren’t as dry and don’t have to reapply lip balm as much 😊 my skin on my arms/hands have become drier from the warm weather - #roaccutane #accutane #isotretinoin #acnescars #scars #dermatology #nofilter #acnetreatment #acneproblem #accutanejourney #progress #clearskin #acnecommunity #acneproneskin #postaccutane #postroaccutane
8 days post accutane ✨ The redness in my face has gone down massively. I still have a little bit of pigmentation. My hair and skin is still dry. My eyes aren’t as dry but my lips have stayed the same. My joint pain has improved but the fatigue has stayed the same! The tops off my hands have become very itchy which I think might be because of the heat! - #roaccutane #journey #acnescars #scars #dermatology #nofilter #drylips #acnetreatment #acneproblem #accutanejourney #isotretinoin #progress #clearskin #acnecommunity #acneproneskin #postaccutane #postroaccutane
4 days post accutane Not noticed any difference apart from my eyes and lips have become even drier, which is strange. I thought I’d have my oils back by now - #roaccutane #journey #acnescars #scars #dermatology #nofilter #drylips #acnetreatment #acneproblem #accutanejourney #isotretinoin #progress #clearskin #acnecommunity #acneproneskin #roche #roaccutanediary
DAY 238 Tomorrow is my last day on roaccutane, I’m happy with my skin but still not 100% happy with myself as I have gained about 6-8lbs from accutane as it caused me to overeat and always when I put on weight I never feel happy within myself. - I’m nervous but somewhat excited to be finishing as to see how my skin does and that I’ll no longer have all the symptoms, I’m not happy that I’ll have to wash my hair a lot, but I hope the fatigue goes away quickly as that’s one off the many symptoms that has bothered me a lot. My eyes have become really dry the past few days so will be glad to not have to use eye drops or lip balms religiously. - It has been a long 8 months although I have been on the tablets for 7 months due to most off my appointment being 5 weeks instead of 4 and at one point I didn’t have any for 18 days and I hope that hasn’t affected my journey and that there could be a chance of them coming back because of this! - If anyone has any questions about accutane and if you’re thinking about going on it or are currently on it and want to know anything feel free to message me/comment below - #roaccutane #journey #acnescars #scars #dermatology #nofilter #drylips #clavaris #hyperpigmentation #acnetreatment #acneproblem #accutanejourney #isotretinoin #progress #clearskin #acnecommunity #pigmentation

DAY 230 Skin has been great, the redness is slowly going down. Just over a week left to go! I still have back pain when I wake up. My skin on my hands the last few weeks has been peeling and now have small peel marks all over my hands. I’m excited but nervous to see how my skin does once I’ve finished 😬 - #roaccutane #journey #acnescars #scars #dermatology #nofilter #drylips #clavaris #hyperpigmentation #acnetreatment #acneproblem #accutanejourney #isotretinoin #progress #clearskin #acnecommunity #pigmentation #acneproneskin #roche #roaccutanediary
DAY 225 No changes in my skin which is great. I’ve been having trouble with back pain especially at night and when I wake up, also my left side of my neck hurts aswell. My anxiety/ocd has definitely gotten worse in the latter stages of accutane but I only have 2 weeks left so cannot wait to finish ⠀ #roaccutane #journey #acnescars #scars #dermatology #nofilter #drylips #clavaris #hyperpigmentation #acnetreatment #acneproblem #accutanejourney #isotretinoin #progress #clearskin #acnecommunity #pigmentation #acneproneskin #roche #roaccutanediary
DAY 217 No changes in my skin but it’s a bit red from the sun yesterday and my eyes and around my mouth appear much whiter. I still have some pigmentation but it’s slowly fading - #roaccutane #journey #acnescars #scars #dermatology #nofilter #drylips #clavaris #hyperpigmentation #acnetreatment #acneproblem #accutanejourney #isotretinoin #progress #clearskin #acnecommunity #pigmentation #acneproneskin #roche #roaccutanediary
DAY 209 I’ve had serious bad joint and aching pain all over my body and even my hands hurt today as I did gardening yesterday for about 6 hours straight and now I’m feeling it. The most active I’ve been since being on accutane. I have quite a few freckles from the sun but I haven’t burnt once even without using sun lotion. Skin has remained the same, just can’t wait to use a dermaroller to help with my scars now.. - #roaccutane #journey #acnescars #scars #dermatology #nofilter #drylips #clavaris #hyperpigmentation #acnetreatment #acneproblem #accutanejourney #isotretinoin #progress #clearskin #acnecommunity #pigmentation #acneproneskin #roche #roaccutanediary
DAY 204 I had my month 7 derm appointment yesterday and my doctor thought that I’d like to finish then as I haven’t had any spots for about 6 weeks but I’ve decided to do another month so I’ll be on it for another 5 weeks as I still have a week left from last months. I thought I’ll be seeing my derm after taking my last month but she said there is no reason to come in unless I have any problems so I will be seeing her in the autumn instead post accutane to see how my skin is doing. - Since sunbathing bank holiday I’ve had the cold and flu and I’ve still got a cold and cough and keep getting headaches a few times a day. I didn’t tan nor burn and my derm thought it were weird how I didn’t as she said most people do - Skin has been great still a bit of pigmentation and scars. My eyes and lips have become seriously drier and I think it could be due to the sunny weather - #roaccutane #journey #acnescars #scars #dermatology #nofilter #drylips #clavaris #hyperpigmentation #acnetreatment #acneproblem #accutanejourney #isotretinoin #progress #clearskin #acnecommunity #pigmentation #acneproneskin #roche #roaccutanediary
DAY 195  I feel like accutane has aged me due to having dry skin as in face wise. I’ve realised that I just can’t control myself when it comes to food and just want to eat everything and never seem to be full - Skin has been great and hives are nearly going. - I were sunbathing yesterday and put SPF 30 on and didn’t burn or get a tan in the slightest so I’m currently sunbathing now with no SPF on to see even if I go red; I’ve always had problems with not being able to tan and not even going red so just going to see what happens - #roaccutane #journey #acnescars #scars #dermatology #nofilter #drylips #clavaris #hyperpigmentation #acnetreatment #acneproblem #accutanejourney #isotretinoin #progress #clearskin #acnecommunity #pigmentation #acneproneskin #roche #myoinositol #inositol #roaccutanediary #sunbathing #sun
DAY 192 I still have hives on my body which are very itchy. The redness is still annoying especially how around my mouth looks so white but I know that won’t go until I finish the medication. The tiredness just seem to be getting worse, cannot wait till I finish this medication not long to go now 💫 - I have started to take myo-inositol as I’ve heard it’s good for a lot of problems that I suffer with. I’ve only been taking it a few days so haven’t noticed any changes yet. - #roaccutane #journey #acnescars #scars #dermatology #nofilter #drylips #clavaris #hyperpigmentation #acnetreatment #acneproblem #accutanejourney #isotretinoin #progress #clearskin #acnecommunity #pigmentation #acneproneskin #roche #myoinositol #inositol #roaccutanediary
DAY 184  I haven’t had any active spots for a few weeks now! I do have hives but they’re not that severe and my lips have suddenly gone dryer - #roaccutane #journey #acnescars #scars #dermatology #dermatology #nofilter #drylips #clavaris #hyperpigmentation #acnetreatment #acneproblem #accutanejourney #isotretinoin #progress #clearskin #acnecommunity #pigmentation #acneproneskin #roche #roaccutanejourney
✨✨ Day 178 ✨✨ Didn’t realise how long it had been since I last uploaded, so here a last minute picture before I get ready. I had my month 6 appointment on Tuesday and I’m still on 30mg, I’m going to be on it for 7 months altogether if my skin behaves. I still have marks where my spots were a couple of months ago that are noticeable and don’t seem to be disappearing. My joint pain has been getting worse since month 5 started and doesn’t seem to be improving my knees are always cracking. My geographic tongue has nearly started to go 😛 #roaccutane #journey #acnescars #scars #dermatology #dermatology #nofilter #drylips #clavaris #hyperpigmentation #acnetreatment #acneproblem #accutanejourney #isotretinoin #progress #clearskin #pigmentation #acneproneskin #roche #roaccutanejourney
