After Week 1



So far its been just over a week (9 days/ 17 pills), and it hasn't been terrible. I broke out a bit on the second day, which then cleared very quickly. Right now I'm completely clear except for two small (but very red) pimples near each other on my cheek. As for finding a good moisturizer and lip treatment, I think I've found something good; for now at least. Since the dryness wasn't too bad initially, I could use a tiny bit of hyalronic acid moisturizer and Burt's Bees lip balm. Now the dryness is kicking in and I've found that Cerave moisturizer and Aquaphor ointment for my lips is amazing. I did have bad headaches for the first 3 days, and now they come and go but arent too bad. Also I've been soooo thirsty, and my nose/throat/ears/eyes are a tiny bit dry and irritated. So far its been tolerable but my skin is demanding a lot of attention. I know it will be all worth it in a few months :]

I'll be posting on friday (week 2).

My derm told me I could put the Aquaphor on the corners of my nostrils and inside my nose and that helped tremendously with the dry nose :- And I use Cetaphil cream for anything else that's extremely dry... Good luck!! :doubt:
