Day 5~Day 7 (20Mg) - End Of Week 1



Day 5

I woke up this morning, haven't taken my 5th Oratane pill and I felt numb lips.

It was definitely a weird numb feeling on my lips as if I had some sort of injection on my upper and lower lips. Kinda like botox and I didn't get a good sleep last night either but I don't think it affected my numb lips. Also, I woke up during the night because I was just so thirsty. I was lazy to get out of bed to go to kitchen to get water, so I tried to get back to sleep in bed. Wrong move. After at least 10 minutes, I knew I had to get up. I was really thirsty by then. Drank 2 cups of water straight and went straight to bed. I fell asleep about half an hour later.

What a night. I think I lack of sleep at this very moment.

Just looked in the mirror, no changes.




Just took my 5th Oratane pill. I'll be heading out for the first time being on Oratane. Also, this is my first time wearing makeup on Oratane. Wearing Holika Holika's Aqua Petite Jelly BB Cream SPF 20+. Coverage: evens my skin tone yet have a sheer-cover. No coverage of my acne/pimples but its ok. I just want to even my skin tone - redness. I like this BB cream because it has a thin consistency and made out of 80% Aqua. Very light on the skin, breathable.

As soon as I came home, I quickly took of my makeup.




No changes still.

Day 6

Last night of Day 5, I had a really bad headache. I couldn't sleep well because of the splitting headache. I'm not sure whether this has to do with Oratane or not but I hope not.




I woke up this morning with a new acne/pimple on my left jaw, it came with a whitehead. Aside from that, everything is fine. Also, I looked in the mirror and realised that my nose tip and the corners of my mouth are starting to flake. I never really had blackheads before Oratane but since then, my blackheads have been slightly noticeable. Also, my face (forehead, laugh lines and cheeks to be exact) is filled with skin coloured bumps (I had them before Oratane but it seems more noticeable). Looks as if they are coming up more on the surface making it more noticeable when I look in the mirror with daylight lighting. What a horrible bumpy complexion. I-feel-so-ugly.

Washing my face since starting Oratane has been horrible due to the soreness by gently rub on my face because of the acne/pimples and gently rubbing my face, feeling all these tiny bumps all over my face. Really made me miss my old days where I had clear skin, good complexion with no bumps whatsoever.

Was searching whether the skin coloured bumps are simply tiny pimple bumps or closed condomes, so I went acne.org and searched the correlation between "Accutane and Closed Condomes", apparently some on Accutane had cured closed condomes (meaning their closed condomes came to surface and became whiteheads/acne/pimples) --oh dear, I have a lot of those, does that mean I'll have more breakouts.....-- and others, still had closed condomes even till the end of their Accutane journey. I really hope that Oratane cures my skin coloured bumps, whatever they might be called in scientific terms. //crosses fingers//

Day 7

Woke up this morning and the biggest acne/pimple on my forehead has slightly decreased (but it is still there) and most of the new acne/pimples that I have gotten from Oratane in the beginning has began to dry out.

Looked myself in the mirror before heading out and realised how bad my skin looked. Managed to use a compact powder foundation all over my face. Slightly bettter but still the same. Can't hide my acne/pimples and I don't dare to use a concealer since I'll be out for less than 2-3 hours.




Just came home, took off my makeup and washed my face. Feel so much better. I just love being at home. Also noticed when I was washing my face that the tiny bumps on my face has somewhat multiply on my laugh lines. Or am I thinking too much? Face is still full of acne/pimples and very very bumpy everywhere. --sigh--

Same, very slight dry lips (I think I can go without a lipbalm or I can apply less than 2x a day), dryness on the corners of my mouth is gone (perhaps it's due to Lucas PaPaws). Other than that, nothing.

Should I be glad or not?
