You might remember, not to long ago I wrote a post on Accutane/Roaccutane which you can read over here and here you will find that I was more than pleased with my results, regardless of the shitty side effects that come with it.
Just a disclaimer: I am still VERY pleased and VERY appreciative towards Roaccutane and what it has done for me physically and emotionally, and that is why I am going on a 3 Month cycle after all these years.
But why Roaccutane? Again!
Well, it is quiet simple actually – after all these years I relapsed. But not like hectic, cystic relapse. No, I am talking about fine pimple reappearing on my cheeks that I for the life of me cannot rid off. So after my consultation at my Dermatologist 2 days ago we decided that for the results and long-term effectiveness I seek that Roaccutane is just the way to go.
Let me Explain…
I am a full-time Law Student, plus a full-time employee, then I blog, freelance, maintain a household, trying to handle this 20 something phase of life and trying to figure out how in heavens name I can receive a payment in an international currency from an international country to a local bank account (PayPal and all that stuff is not an option). Let’s just say life took a toll on me and well…my skin.
After leaving THE injection my Doc. gave me some tablets that was supposed to initiate my menstruation and in the end I got stuck with the worst breakout and nothing more than that. The breakout never cleared and a 6 week exam didn’t help much either. Even after it still stayed, even worse? I got pimple by my cleavage.
I refused to go back to square one. Come hell and high water – Self Payment Gap on the Medical aid, the R750 consultation does not beat being back to square one.
So what now?
Well I got prescribed a 3 month course for Roaccutane. This time I will document as much as possible and I hope you join me. I am scared since I am older and my body may react differently but I am sending all positive vibes.
The Good? Well now we can see what makeup works and what doesn’t but I can tell you now I can kiss those Matte Lipsticks GOODBYE for a good 4 months.
HELP: Can anyone recommend a good day cream for EXTREMELY DRY SKIN? Plus a Foundation that is NOT MATTE but has AMAZING coverage?
