True initial breakouts are rare, less than 1%. It's difficult to know, really, because acne is cyclical and the severe pimples may have just happened anyway.
Yes, I've done the brush trick before, but with an eyeshadow brush, lol! It wasn't for Accutane induced dryness, though. Specifically, it was for stupid-bitterly-cold-weather-induced dryness.
Lol I know what you mean about the stupid-bitterly-cold-weather-induced dryness. It's very dry where I live, and at a very high altitude so I have been experiencing that for a few months.
That's good to know that initial breakouts are rare, because I have been terrified for that part!!! It's what's been giving me the most stress
Uh, oh. You'll have to apply gallons of Aquaphor! Maybe even commandeer cotton gloves, cut them up, and cover your face up with them for the night. Hope you don't get unbearably dry!
Glad to relieve some of your stress! If you read the Accutane section long enough it can convince you that initial breakouts are common when they aren't!
