So on Monday I started my first month on Isotretinoin, more commonly known as roaccutane.
I have included these pictures of my skin at the start of the treatment for myself to look back on and hopefully my skin gradulay improve. These pictures were extremely hard for me to include but hopefully it will make others feel better about their skin.
So far so good, I have obviously seen no side effects. This includes improvements but also the more negative side effects such as dry skin. However I have invested in a new skin care routine based on Katie Snooks recommendations.
I will link her YouTube video here as her documentation and advice on rouaccutane has helped me greatly.
Katie Snooks Advice.
Skin Care I have purchased:
- Dermol 500 Lotion (as a face wash) Available at a chemist. £10
- Dermol Cream (as a moisturiser) Available at a chemist. £11.10
- La Roche- Posey Anthelios Pocket Sun cream SPF 50.(as a SPF) Available at Boots but it is much cheaper from lookfantastic. £10
- Carmex (as lipbalm)
- Hand Cream
- Body Moisturiser
So that’s all I have to update you on, I know I have a long way to go but at least it is a start.
