Day 11

I am pretty happy to have woken up two days in a row with no more big red spot on my face! I am a bit reluctant to be fully happy though because especially in this first month breakouts are more likely and such. But for today I can be happier with my skin. It would be close to clear if these few pimples from the weekend went away. They were monsters but they are healing and I have not picked!

Again my skin on my forehead and chin, are actually more shiny now (I never had a very oily face). I prefer it to dry skin but it is kinda weird. My lips again haven't gotten too dried and cracked but they peel a bit. I am sticking to Dr. Dan's which I have to pick up today. I am actually a chap stick addict so before accutane i always had my burt bees near me so it annoys me a ton to feel my lips starting to dry out. I think that is going to be my worst thing.

I am a little worried. In general my hair sheds a lot but i feel like i notice it more now because of the possibility of the hair loss side effect. I think I am just paranoid right now but I have been shedding a ton. I probably just paranoid.

Yesterday, I summoned up the courage to finally get back to reality and go hang out with people. My weekend breakout was pretty bad and despite it healing now there a couple of pretty raised spots. But it felt good to be back with my friends who could care less if I had acne or was bald or even had polka dots. I am praying my skins keeps healing because I have birthdays this week and I don't want to let my acne get in the way of going. More positive thinking!

I don't really have too much of a routine right now but if anyone is wondering:

Morning:

Vanicream cleansing bar to wash my face

Aveeno ultra calming daily moisturizer spf30

Night:

Vanicream cleansing bar

cerave lotion

All the time: cortibalm on lips

I figure right now since my face isn't too dry I will keep this up and will make adjustments as accordingly

Kelly (:

It has been working pretty well. And though I have the chapstick kind I will put it on and the maybe keep reapplying aquaphor. The mornings mine always get dried out but I do that routine and throughout the day everything so far has been good (:
