Day 2 complete.

So tomorrow morning (7 hours!) I will take dose #3! I honestly cannot wait for this stuff to start working. My face is freaking out currently and is so painful. I can't find a makeup that works and if it weren't for my two jobs, I'd just go without. But while I was researching this site, I noticed many women posting their "regimens" and I figured I'd do the same.

Morning:

Wash face with Cetaphil for Normal to Oily Skin.

Moisturizer is Cetaphil for all skin types. It's great and absorbs well. I'm currently choosing between Aveeno's Tinted Moisturizer or Neutrogena's Sheer Glow Tinted Moisturizer. The Neutrogena is so smooth and matches the yellow undertones in my complexion a lot better than the Aveeno! Either way, they both contain 45 SPF.

Makeup -- Revlon's ColorStay is wonderful!! Full coverage and lasts all day!! Then a powder blush, followed by a loose powder to sort of "seal" the makeup.

Lips -- Aquaphor!! This was at the advice of all my friends who have taken Accutane in the past. Apparently it's a life saver for the dryness that kicks in.

Night:

Wash face with Cetaphil again.

Then I use a spot treatment -- Benzoyl Peroxide 10%. I might quit this if I get too dry from the Accutane, but after two doses, I'm still normal (not oily) skin.

Moisturizer is again the Cetaphil after the BP has dried.

Wash it all off in the morning and start again. It takes way too long to cover my cystic acne around my jawline --- Hurry up and work, Accutane!! I'm ready for 5 minute makeup days.

Oh yeah. I'm prescribed 40mg Claravis, once a day. I'm about 5'9" and 125lbs.
