Hi everybody! It's been a week today since I popped my first Claravis pill. I'm taking 40 mg a day with my first meal of the day. I'm wondering if I should take it at night?! Any thoughts on that anyone?
Anyway, I have experienced some minor side effects, such as:
Lower back pain
Minor chapped lips
Minor dry face.. Mainly around my nose, chin, and pre existing pimples
Super dry throat
It seems like my face is clearing up, but then again it is the first week. I have noticed that I have a bunch of tiny little guys around my hair line and jaw that are just there. It seems like there's some growing activity under the surface on my cheeks (my problem areas) that are waiting to come to surface and make my life miserable! My dermatologist said if I have an extreme IB, to call her and she will prescribe me something to help manage the problem. I'm hoping that I am one of the lucky ones and passes the IB.
Today, it's been a few hours since popping my 7th pill and I only have a headache and minor dry skin and chapped lips. Nothing too serious. My daily regimen is the following:
Cetephil gentle cleanser
Trader joes nourish moisturizer SPF 15
Dr Dans cortibalm with 1% hydrocortisone
Chanel perfection lumiere
Nars orgasm blush
(Thinking about switching to a more moisturizing foundation as my skin will get drier throughout the course) any reccommendations?!
Cetaphil gentle cleanser
AC Care natural cleanser (Korean face wash that helps remove makeup) if anyone has any suggestions for a cleanser to remove make up, let me know!!!
Vivete hydrating replenish cream (LOVE!!!)
And lots and lots of water and cocoa butter!!
