So i had my one month appt today with my derm. She said that she couldn't hope for better. We agreed that i escaped all of the serious side effects, and also evaded most of the initial breakout. So on ward! now if only i could remember my iPledge id.. gotta get my wallet...
today my peeling was minimal. I plan on showering tomorrow morning to scrub down my body, but i am debating washing my hair. Almost curious to see how long i can go without washing it. I am on day two without a wash, and everything looks pretty normal.
I bought new chapstick, to experiment. soft lips seems to absorb quickly, but if i let it, it leaves a moist feeling behind. Also nivea is nice when i need an instant relief.
my black heads are disappearing, but the white heads under the skin are still around. I have two dying little pimples on the outside of my mouth.
I can wear makeup all day and still look good at 7:pm. It is like magic. and suddenly, i dont find myself covering my mouth when i talk. I am also comfortable looking my fiance i the eyes, at close range. the emotional difference is the most amazing thing.
The dry skin pretty much sucks. But for me (and as i said, i got pretty lucky with side effects) this has been a wonder drug.
