Woohoo. I've officially broke into my new box of Accutane, and things are going very.. Dry. My cheeks, forehead, and generally my whole face (lips included) have been peeling like crazy. My lip balm has become my best friend.. Along with my facial moisturizer. But to be honest, it's nice not to wake up with a really, really oily face. My acne is actually clearing up, too. My cysts are really going down.
But, as any change in my life, there comes a consequence: Developing a skin care routine.
Before hand, it was "wash my face and head out the door". Not it's:
1) Wash my face with "Pure". It's the only thing gentle enough that won't give my a chemical burn.
2) Wash my face with Noxzema. It's moisturizing, with a nice tingle to it.
3) Put Pond's Face Cream on. The only problem with that is it only lasts for up to four hours..
4) Apply Burt's Bees lip balm. What can I say? I'm addicted!
Anyways, my morning routine takes a few minutes longer that normal. Hopefully, it will all be worth it in the end.
