almost at the one month mark! i graduated high school today, thank gawd! my skin is improving, its not oily at all. i used to have to powder my face at least like every 30 minutes or so and now i dont even bring powder with me at all whenever i go out. i have a cyst under my eyebrow and its pretty painful, and i have about 2 cysts on my forehead. my chin is clearing up very nicely, i had a bunch of black heads on it before but now its all smooth. oh i have a cyst on my chin too. pretty sure my IB is happening as we speak...it might have been going on for a while now but i can't even tell. i still have some white heads that need to go away...i try SO hard not to pop them so i try not to look in the mirror. my nose still has a few black heads that need to come out, but the huge pores i had on my cheeks have disappeared. my skin is still somewhat bumpy and when i put makeup on when i come home i have flaky skin around where all pimples are. as for side effects, dry skin (but not unbearably dry, ive had much much MUCH worse), very chapped lips (we couldnt bring anything to the grad ceremony so i was without my aquaphor for 2 hours and my lips were seriously dead), and my nose bled again today. my back is sore whenever i lay down but its not anything bad.
still drinking lots of water and eating very healthy. my derm appointment is on friday...we'll see what she says!
