I just got back form camping in Yosemite for the weekend. My face got so dry and i broke out like no other. My face it so gross i can't even handle it. I know this is "part of the process" but come on!
My acne is worse than before i started with the meds. UGH.
After hiking to the top of upper Yosemite fall and to the top of Nevada fall in two days my knees hurt so bad. Joint pain is a drag. And my lips got pretty dry, that was to be expected they were dry before i got up to the dry mountain air.
Overall the trip was worth the intensified side effects. If you have never been to Yosemite- you should go. Such a beautiful place you might forget you have gross acne for a weekend- and the mirrors in the bathroom are shit you cant see your face! that helps too.
I'm kinda wigged out about the whole no booze drinking thang. you know? My doc said having a beer or a glass of wine is totally fine. I had a totally of 2 beers and one glass of wine(maybe) over 3 days and i think everything was cool. i'm not planning on doing this often- at all. but when your camping it's sooo hard to turn down a cold beer.
Can not wait for my face to get better. i hear it takes the first month? is this true? i guess it depends on your body and all that but i would love some feed back. thanks!
