Changed side effects since last post: Sweaty nose
Persistent side effects: Dry lips, flaking skin on face, blackheads fading, skin fragile
Not much is new. I still have blackheads on my nose and very small ones on my forehead and cheeks (they're obvious only to me in the mirror). The ones on my nose have faded dramatically in the past month, but I'm really hoping they'll going away entirely.
A bizarre side effect that first appeared several weeks ago is that my nose seems more sweaty, and this seems especially obvious in cold weather. I haven't spent a lot of time figuring out why this is happening. Since I'm virtually never without a moisturizer of some kind on my nose, I can't rule out that it's something about the CeraVe. I'm not too bothered by this effect and dab my nose whenever I feel sweat accumulate. (It's never dripping down, and overall I'm still less shiny than before.)
That's it. My complexion overall is good, except for the flaky bits--my skin tone is much more even, and my cheeks are rosy.
