Before Day 1

rickyost

220 views

Tomorrow is day one. I got my blood work done, and all was normal and good to go. My skin is actually much clearer than it normally is, which is strange because I've been off of any type of treatment besides a BP wash in the morning and night. I had been taking sulphameth for a few months that initially worked amazingly, but I soon grew resistant to it. Nothing over the counter has worked in the past. Neither did any BP based cream, or retin-a. I've had moderate acne for about 2 years (since I was 15), and before that had only had minor breakouts. I'll be taking 40mg twice a day, and cetaphil face wash an moisturizer. Not completely sure which wash/moisturizer/lip balm is best so advice would be greatly appreciated :]

Hey I might be going on accutane soon as well. But I would recommend PHisoderm for sensitive skin, cera ve hydrating clenser, or aveno. Check my blog as well new to this

Hey I just started my accuate on the 28th of Feb. I know how you feel aboutnot knowing what to get and where to start. So far I have done a couple of changes:I bought Cetaphil face wash and moisturizong cream= and its working well. I have Aveeno sunscreen just incase I decide to spend a day out in the sun, which is not advised and I proabably wont but you never know.I also started drinking ALOT of water. When I say ALOT I mean: I bought 3 cases of water, put two in my apt. and one in my car :)I'm also trying my hardest to stay away from sugar/fatty filled foods.For my lips I havent bought anything specific yet because what I have is working just fine. Im using: Burts Bees Rejuvenating Lip Balm. I have to reapply a couple of times but its working just fine. The best advise I can give you is to do your research and try to figure out what suits you. Look up reviews and the whole shabang! lol GOOD LUCK! :boohoo:

I got veryyyyy thirsty during my first week too! and as for the lip care, burts bees is what I've always used and it just wasn't enough, so I'm now using Aquaphor which is great. Good luck to you too! :]
