Day 14 Update



Two weeks in so far. Yeah, only 18 weeks left? Wow, that's springtime in these parts and well with snow measured in the feet outside, I guess I have a while.

Day 14 is not much different than day 7 was. I have yet to have any side effects beyond slightly chapped lips which go away immediately with Blistex or Aquaphor.

In fact, I've not really been using moisturizer after washing my face other than sunscreen on days when I know I'll be outside a lot.

If I'm still using the scale, I'd say I'm still at a 3, maybe a 3 and a half. I have had one bad pimple come out (the kind that stick around for a few days or more and hurt), and a few other ones here and there.

Improvements seem to be in the small ones, and they have not gone totally away but they are fewer in number. And oily skin doesn't seem to be as much either.

Any other side effect I've not noticed, I take a fish oil tablet every night, I still eat veggies high in vitamin A (because there are few that aren't) and I use topicals on occasion. Nothing. Wore contacts the past couple of days and they're fine all day, no drying. Eyes are red in the AM and sometimes a little dry, but geez, maybe the slow, low dosage is the key to avoiding the problems, but who knows if that will stay that way.

And that's it. thanks for the comments previously, it's encouraging.
