Month 2 – CHECK! This month was easier in some ways, but harder in others. For starters, I worked on building up to 30mg two times a day, so doubling my dosage has made some side effects more prominent, but now that my body has had time to become acclimated to the medication, some side effects have faded. So, without further ado, here’s the update on my Accutane journey.
It’s already been one month since I started my Accutane journey. CRAZY! One down… 5 to go. It’s been an adjustment – both in good and bad ways. Although there’s still a long way to go, I’ve made enough progress in just one month that even others are starting to notice. But it does come at a bit of a price – I have a list of side effects I’ve started experiencing, some of them within a week of starting the medication. So for those of you who have been interested to keep up with me during my Accutane journey, here’s month one! Read my initial post about My Decision to Start Accutane to get an idea of my skin/acne treatment history.
Usually one of the first things I notice about someone is their smile. For me, as an avid coffee drinker, sometimes the stains that remain can take away from the brightness of my smile. I’ve tried turning to toothpastes and mouthwashes, but they just don’t seem to completely do the trick when it comes to deeper stains – and whitening strips have led to increased sensitivity. Then I turned to White with Style.
Before I get started, I just want to state that this post is not promoting Accutane – it’s a personal decision I made as a result of many years of frustration with my skin and was not a decision I took lightly. Accutane is a serious drug with serious side effects and is not for everyone; speak with your dermatologist about what plan of action is best for you.
Bad hair days happen to the best of us, but they don’t have to be a daily occurrence. While genetics plays a role in color and texture, there are quite a few things we can still do to manage the health and appearance of our hair. If you’re not a natural Rapunzel, or just want a little help getting your hair to cooperate before your leave for your day in the morning, here are 11 tips that will help add luster and length to your locks.
Let’s get started!
Winter is such a wonderful time of the year (because it finally starts to feel like fall in the south). The holidays, post-season football games, the crisp, refreshing air – it doesn’t get better than that! But the down side is that as the air dries up, so does our skin, which can make skincare routines more complicated and intense.
Raise your hand if you’re a little guilty of splurging on beauty products to “treat yo’self.”
Now raise your hand if you’re also a little guilty of spending lots of money on products that weren’t worth the price.
Being a woman can be hard because there’s so much pressure to have perfect skin, perfect hair, perfect clothes… just about perfect anything. And do we really make ourselves feel any better when now we’re flat-out broke after spending money on “great” seeming products that didn’t help like they seemed they would? If you’re looking for an honest review + help finding a certain product, here’s a list of beauty products I have tried, fallen in love with, and can’t get enough of!
