Hey guys, well today is the last day of November, marking my accutane journey as "Month one."
Negative side. My lips! My poor pink sensitive lips. It's absolutely horrifying! It's intensely dry. URGH. I occasionally have dry lips, but right now does not compare what I use to recall "dry!" I've tried Nivea, Vaseline, Vitamin E (oil), chapstick, mother-f-ing everything. I'm still having a search party on which lip treatment would be the jackpot. Sometimes my lips crack and bleed, and the weather here in Canada is not helping at all. You see, my lips is the prominent feature on my face. And having them crack like a crumpled piece of paper is depressing.
Positive side. My hair can survive without showers for days and it would not turn oily whatsoever. Yeah yeah, it's pretty gross, but for me, it's freaking amazing! My hair is soft and not dry at all. ah... Also, my face have stopped producing oil. No more oil!
My face has improved A LOT. For a month's worth of accutane, it's been giving me good results. Blackheads are almost diminished on my cheeks. Skin is soft, dryness is no problem. I only have red marks/scars left and it's only the first month! I can't wait for the end results.
Lastly, I don't know if it's the accutane but I lost 10 pounds. YEP. 10 pounds. Maybe my eating habits just changed, but I feel good
The products I use as my daily routine (it's simple and easy):
- Dove sensitive bar (does not dry the face)
- Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion
- Cetaphil Daily Facial Moisturizer with SPF 15
- Maybelline Mousse Concealer (just a pat)
