HEY ALL SO IM COMING INTO WEEK 3 DAY 15!!!!!!!!
ACNE: i still have this huge pimple on my right cheek that seems to shrink a bit then next day its big again and it def has alot of blood in it! now the rest of my face is ok clearing up def i can def def see a diff but at the same time i can also see all my black heads more clear there bulging out and id wish they would just come out already ugh with makeup my skin looks flaless though. havent had anymore ib since my first week but im nervouse that im almost dont with month one and not a BIG improvement
SIDE EFFECTS: my lips are just burning and cracking up a storm. i literally apply chapstick 5454564186 times a day and god forbid i leave it at home ouuuuuch!!!!
My skin is def alot more dry after i was its hard and kinda sand papery but nothing my trusty nivia daily moisturizer doesnt fix goosh i love it lol
REGIMEN: EVERY MORNING I APPLY CETAPHIL FACIAL WASH!! FOLLOWED BY NIVIA DAILY MOISTURIZER FOR DRY SKIN (AWSOME) 20 MG OF ISOFACE EVERY MORNING AFTER A SMALL BREAKFAST! AND MY TRUSTY TRUSYYY CARMEX ORIGINAL LIP BALM!! REAPEAT AT NIGHT AND I MUST SAY I HAVE BEEN DOING GREAT NOT SLEEPING WITH MAKE-UP ON AND WASHING MY FACE 2-3 TIMES A DAY OH AND TRYING NOT TO PICK BUTTTTT HEY IM NOT PERFECT !!!
ON A PERSONAL NOTE:: LETS GO MIAMIIII HEAT WOOOT PLAY OFFS BABYYY!!!!!
DAY 11 I HAVENT HAD A BEER OR ALCOHOL SINCE PRE ISOFACE, BUT THERE WAS A HEAT GAME lAST NIGHT GAINST CHICAGO. YAY WE WON, BUT AS WE WERE WINNING I COULDNT HELP BUT HAVE A BEER, OR TWO OK OK THREE. HEY IM NOT PERRRFECT LOL GOO MIAMI HEAT
SKIN: Face is alot more dry these days which is a great thing considering i had oily skin and hair before isoface. (less than two weeks ago) the first week my face broke out horribly hoping it was the first of many stents on ib. but now coming into week two there drying out!
THE WHOLE BOTTOM OF MY FACE ( NOSE DOWN) IS CLEAR AND NOT JUST REG CLEAR LIKE WHEN IM HAVING A GOOD ACNE DAY LIKE CLEAR CLEAR I DONT EVEN HAVE VISIBLE PORES
SIDE EFFECTS: DRY DRY DRY lips are dry, hair is dry and my skin is dry. lips are the worst by far peeling im literally applying vaseline and or nivia lip balm every 10 min
im not complaining on My hair being dry though this means less washing and more pretty ironed time lol
( the girls would understand) no nausea or vomittig slight back pain nothing serious and def no joint pain all is good in the neighborhood
RANDOM RANTS: Im moving on the first and its stressing me out i dont want to break out duble time and thats stressing me out!! my face looks great with makeup and its lasting longer because my face oil isnt melting it off eww lol im loosing weight my appetite since i started isoface has gone down down down not depression i think its just the massive amounts of water im drinking.
TIP OF THE DAY!!!! WATER WATER WATER WATER AND CHAP STICK
So its week 2 on isoface and my dose is still the same 20 mg daily
im def not upping that dose just because of how quickly my side effects kicked in.
Ive already experienced the horrible migraines ( yesterday expecially) maybe its all in my head but my lower back is hurting a bit when i stretch.
Definate side effects are dry lips and skin icthy scalp and break outs every morning i have a new breakout.
so for now im leaving my dose at 20 mg seems to be working just fine.
lets talk daily life:
I come to work without make up ( horrible) so ppl are starting to notice my breakouts.
My husband just hates the fact that my lips are always drowning in vaseline or neosporin but other than that hes very supportive
i hate not being able to be at the beach im in miami ugh do you know how hard this is for me and my best friend happens to live literally across the street. well all in the name of clear skin!!!
OK so its day 09 and may i say this f%*# my life!! my weekend was spent indoors thanks to what i call my ib because even if it might be to soon my face has never looked this bad ever! so it has to be no? anyways my scalp isnt so itchy anymore but these lips boy oh boy these once smoooth lips look like an old concrete street full of cracks!!!!
my hiar is still oily my skin isnt so dry mostly my lips!!
but these planets that have errupted on my face are def something else lol
same routine daily wash morning and pm barely piicking (barely) and my belved isoface pill
but hey hooray to getting my first week down and maybe just maybe its a good thing my ib is hitting so soon OUT!!!!
Im on day 5 , week one almost down!!!!
These days my time consists of my regular routine of work,baby , ect and a new addition to my routine would be asking my husband to scratch my back or any other places i dont reach.
My skin is itchy in general not only my scalp and eyes anymore oh yea my eyes are dry now and quite itchy!!
Ive found my scalp is releived by keeping my hair clean and picked up tip of the day!!!
My face isnt any different at all , same huge cyst on my cheek wont dry out and my lips and nose are super dry!!
Im hoping tomorrow ill wake up with no acne and 12000$ under my pillow but i can assure you that waking up with the money under my pillow is wayy more likely lol
ITCHY ITCHY ITCHY IS THE WEATHER FORCAST FOR THE NEXT COUPLE OF MONTH WITH A CHANCE OF DRY LIPS, DRY EYES AND HEAVY IB!!
OH WELL ALL IN THE NAME OF ACNE!!!
WHY hello ppl of the acne.org world!!
For those of you considering accutane and or starting soon. before you do i know youve read all over his forum about dry skin plsssss do not understimate these post. go out and buy yourself a greattt moisturizer and lots of chap stick!!! some head and shoulders would also be to your best interest!! just saying.
