Tag: Manuka Doctor
So I have now been on roaccutane (isotretinoin) for 2 months (out of my 5) and I am already starting to see a difference. They say to begin with your skin can get a lot worse which it did but then eventually start to improve. I definitely feel my skin is so much less oily, it feels a lot more matte which is amazing! But they’re not kidding when they tell you that it dries everything out. My hair, skin, lips (especially) and eyes are all a lot drier. As well as giving me more frequent headaches, so it is really important to drink plenty of water! It also feels weird not putting on any spot treatment creams every night, because now I mainly need moisturisers. I mainly use Cetaphil Moisturiser as prescribed by my doctor. If I do get any new spots I occasionally use Manuka Doctors – Blemish Cream which isn’t very drying so it works well. I am still on the hunt to find the best lip balm and have ordered a new one which I will review when I have tried – but currently I am using Aquaphor by Eucerin which I have reviewed here.
