Claravis (Accutane) Day 8



Oof. My lips are kind of unbearably dry, even with the un-petroleum jelly. I'm going to Safeway today to get a stick of Dr. Dan's lip balm, hopefully that will help.

I decided to take my pill early today, because I'll be going out this evening when I would usually take it. I just swallowed it with lunch.

My mouth and chin area is the worst right now. It's as bad as it's ever been, although none of the zits are pimples - just lots of painful, itchy, small zits, and tightness and dryness, and my upper lip is the same. I'm definitely experiencing the Initial Breakout, capital I, capital B. My face is still red.

My forehead felt a little oily last night when I was falling asleep (or trying to), and I hadn't put on any moisturizer in that area, so at least I know some of the greasiness is from me and not the lotion.

On the bright side, Neutrogena Ultra-sheer dry touch sunblock is AMAZING!!! I wish I could get it in a larger size for a better price. The smell makes me think of the beach :)
