I think this is going to be the one that everybody is going to suffer from, when you are on Accutane. No matter who you are, you're going to get dry skin. And when I'm saying dry skin, I'm not talking about being a little bit dry, I'm talking about scaly, like it is the worst dryness you've ever felt. And, particularly, if you're someone like me, and you were suffering from oily skin before being on the drug, then it is like a transformation.
So, the second area I wanted to discuss is dehydration. When you are on Accutane, you are constantly thirsty, so you need to carry around water wherever you go. I've been mistaken a few times when going into meetings without that water, and, honestly, not being able to concentrate because of being so thirsty. Having a bottle of water 20 or all times is 100% essential you that need to do.
Number one is your lips. If you have a google about anything to do with Accutane, then you will discover that your lips get insanely dry, while you're on the drug. They will crack, they will bleed, and they will be painful. But I did manage to find a few ways around this.
I'm going to try my best not to make this one huge massive rant, but I felt like there are a lot of things I want to get off my chest at the moment, because it's been over two years since I finished the course of Accutane. And I get a lot of questions about the side effects and how long they were lasting, whether I ever regret about being on Accutane.
When you’re on Accutane, you may experience many side effects of the drug. A great problem is that the drug affects your skin. I’m going to tell you about my skincare journey, while I was on Accutane. I watched a video, where a girl was telling that she had severe acne, and after finishing taking Accutane she noticed that her acne was coming back.
Now, after the Accutane for about three weeks, my skin has got a little bit oily. Now it wasn't oily for four months of the whole medication and whole journey. My skin dried out completely. So, when I would put foundation on, it would last all day. I have found myself to get a little bit oily. But I'm not panicking too much. My skin is super soft.
