| | post accutane
Hi, I just wanted to share my experience with acne after taking accutane.
First of all, I used accutane for 7 months, ending with 120mg my last month. It cleared me up very very well. My skin was perfect. I started accutane 02/02 and ended acctuane 09/02. My acne began coming back 02/03, as well as the oil and nastiness.
Don't get me wrong, accutane has helped, I just didn't want to go on another treatment of accutane, my acne is manageable now.
Eating correctly has helped tremendously as well as taking supplements. I've greatly reduced my intake of carbs, unhealthy fatty foods/meats, and reduced my intake of sugars. I basically try to stay away from breads, soda, candy and fatty meats such as pork/sausage. I eat fruits/veggies, lean beef, and chicken. High protein, low carbs.
I work-out at least 3 times weekly, my work-outs consist of weight training and cardio.
I take a lot of supplements. Evening primerose oil, flax seed oil, protein shakes, glutamine, creatine, co-enzyme q-10, vitamin e, vitamin a, pro-biotics, bovine colostrum, digestive enzymes, and glucosamine & chonodroitin w/ msm.
I use retin-a at night, wash with cetaphil, moisterize with cetaphil.
Eat right + take the correct supplements + exercise =
one happy clear face
Good luck, questions welcomed.
