Sorry its been so long since I've updated - there hasn't been much to say.
Skin is pretty dry and lips are SO SO dry. I apply Aquaphor like 10-15 times per day. In the last few days, the skin around my mouth and nose has been peeling, but I've been trying to combat with Olay and Jojoba oil.
I've also been using a clarisonic style brush on my face which **rocks** - I feel like I get my face so much cleaner. I wash at night until there's no orange makeup coming off onto the brush, so I know my face is really clean. Before, I don't think i was actually getting all my foundation and cover up off.
I saw my family for the first time in awhile this past weekend and they all commented that my skin looked great.
My roommate has also commented on it, except I get really excited about it and get in her face and go "HOW GOOD DOES MY SKIN LOOK??" so I'm pretty much pushing her into it. Can't help myself, I'm excited.
Things have been BETTER since I feel like I can get up and not hate my face. Seriously.
I have a few whiteheads right now (no nodules, nothing deep) and that's the worst it's been in weeks.
But, I will say that I know the trend with Accutane can be that it gets worse before it gets better, so I'm fully prepared for there to be a period of not so great skin, whether it be on my face or my back, coming up here soon. I'm almost afraid to be too optimistic.
The biggest downside right now: dry, dry, dry, dry lips. SO dry.
The biggest upside: clear skin!
Haven't experienced any mood swings yet.
