eighty-eight !!

Sorry guys, I've been pretty busy. So the dermatologist tells me I have that "baby soft Accutane skin," and I've gotta agree. My skin is no longer oily and though my lips are dry, they've been getting better with the warmer weather. My skin's still peeling, though, and goes through spurts of being worse than others, but usually I just moisturize heavily and avoid washing it more than -- at most -- twice a day. My hair, as I've mentioned before, can go a week without being washed but I try t

fifty-six, how time flies.

So I just got back from Athens, Georgia for spring break. It was a nice change of pace to say the least. So speaking about this dry scalp thing, I just went SIX DAYS without washing my hair (the entire length of my stay in Georgia) and when I finally did wash it, I only did so because it skeeved me out. When in fact, my hair looked as if I had washed it the same day. This is almost terrifying, because I haven't been able to (since puberty, anyway) go more than two days TOPS without washing

thirty eight !

So my lips are dry. (duh). No really, I was always the habitual lip-chewer, and it's been progressively getting worse, and now it's real bad. I'm turning into the lip-picker and that's where I need to draw the line and stop. Usually in the morning I scrub them a little with my towel to get rid of all the extra dried skin. As for the pimples bothering me last week, due to a convenient timing of my dermatologist appointment I was able to get those couple pimples injected (God I love how simple it

twenty seven.

Uh, is this the major breakout ? I've got a bunch on my face, under the skin, that are painful. And my skin's peeling. It's not too much (especially in the scheme of my breakouts), but it's allot more than recently and it's annoying. Tops, my skin is dry and won't hold makeup like normal, so it's a fun time. Yes, that's sarcasm. On another note, I finally ordered a bottle of jojoba oil because I've been reading up on it and can't find anything bad about it. Also, with my hair being dry, I

twenty four, plus tons of snow.

So the Mid-atlantic region is currently getting slammed with feet upon feet of snow, and thus I've been shoveling said feet and feet of snow. Sure, it's a way to get some exercise in -- after all, school is cancelled -- and it really is beautiful, but come on Mother Nature; this is allot of snow. Anyway, onto the skin. There are two cysts on my face, and they're not too big of a deal. If they hang around by my appointment with the dermatologist next week, I'll ask to have them injected but

In the scheme of things, it's going pretty well. The redness on my face has gone down tremendously since I started Accutane (probably because my skin actually has a chance to catch up and heal), and pimples are at a fair minimum. The texture of my skin is nice and smooth, too. Though the annoying little buggers have practically stopped showing up (you know, the gross ones that you wake up to in the morning with those shining white heads), the cystic ones still appear, but nothing to the extent o

Within a matter of 24 hours, those two pimples that had to be injected were mere dots on my face. Thank God. Now, a couple days later, the one on my cheek was completely gone and the one on my lip is practically invisible, but a little bit of peeling skin is still hangin' around. So, it's true; your lips get DRY. I'm only eight days in and today my lips decided to give in to the constant consumption of vitamin A and just shriveled up. It's weird, though ! It's not like regular cold-weather-

three, ouch.

So first off, all I can say is holy. shit. This hurts. I woke up this morning, stumbled into the bathroom and looked into the mirror. My lip looked like I had been stung by a bee. That tiny little thing the night before ? Yeah, it exploded over night. Before I freaked out too much, I did what any 20-something away at college does: called my mom. "MOM IT LOOKS LIKE I'VE BEEN HIT IN THE FACE WHAT DO I DO." "Call the dermotologist right now and get them to inject it with cortizone," was w

two !

So, there's some background to this. I'm not a big blogger. I'm one of those who starts one because she likes the excitement that comes with exploring a new territory (both in physical space and the computer world), but often loses momentum after the first couple of posts. However ! Thanks to this lovely Accutane, this blog won't be stopping any time soon. I could go into boring details (I've had issues with my skin since age X blahblah) but it's not worth it. I recently contracted (an
