Week 3 Update

Posted by youngforever, 25 November 2013 · 135 views

Almost a month in....phew! 
 
So now I am really starting to dry out! Skin is flaky and tight...it may be because my boyfriend visited for the weekend and I didn't use the vitamin e oil on my face at night (slick and oily face is not too attractive) so I'm going to hope that once I use it tonight my skin won't be as dry. 
 
Lips aren't cracking or anything...they really haven't been uncomfortable at all since I started the treatment. 
 
I did pick at 3 small blackheads which took much longer than usual to heal Posted Image I know I know I'm not supposed to pick but old habits die hard haha.
 
I also had 3 new pimples pop up. Luckily 2 were along my hairline so they couldn't be seen but boy did those things hurt Posted Image Another good thing, my hair and face are finally not oily anymore! I can go a whole day without having to blot my face and I wake up the next morning and my hair isn't greasy at all.
 
I've cut back on using the aczone since its adding to my dryness. Does anyone have any good suggestions for face lotion? I've heard mixed reviews about Cetaphil...I heard it is very thick and greasy and should only be used at night because it does not go well underneath make up. Any ladies have any suggestions of lotions to use during the day under makeup? 
 
Let me know!
 
Until next week -- 
 
 
 
UPDATE:
 
Literally within 24 hours 3 new pimples popped up Posted Image These ones are gonna be big too I can feel it..ughh dfahfpafjap I'm hoping this is the dreaded IB so I can just get it over with. When did everyone experience their IB and how long did it last? I'm praying it only lasts a week or two...my birthday is in 2 weeks and clear skin is my only wish! Posted Image
 




Hey its alittle late but thanks for your post! Its great to see your hair isnt oily anymore either!!! haha But yeah i def saw a difference going up in dosage. Skin has been dry and tight just like yours and i am starting to break out more than usually but nothing too bad. Told you the weeks would go by fast!

Oh no now I'm scared to increase my dosage!! I have my 1 month appointment on Monday and I'm gonna ask if I can just stay at 20 mg. One of the side effects that is getting really bad is my lower back pain. Have you had any of that? Oh my gosh its terrible every time I lay down or sit up my back gets a shooting pain! I'm hoping this isn't something permanent...

 

But yeah I'm definitely going through the initial breakout. I swear a new one pops up everyday. Luckily they aren't cysts or anything big but they are still annoying and take twice as long to heal. I'm gonna ask if I can get some prednisone to calm the breakout...especially since my birthday is in 2 weeks!! No one wants a pizza face on their birthday :(
