So I started accutane 8 days ago, I'm on 40mg a day and i'm 5'4 and 118lbs. I started noticing dry lips and dry skin on the third day, and since then it has gotten worse and worse. I know some people said for them it's not until about the second or third week that it starts to effect them like that, but by day 8 i'm applying aquaphor every 20 minutes. The dry lips is more of an annoyance that anything painful and the aquaphor works really well so no bigge. I did breakout worse starting on day 3 and i'm just today noticing that it's starting to calm down a bit. I don't know if this is the initial breakout or not but if it is then hopefully it'll be over soon. No aches or pains, no headache, the only thing i notice is that i clench my jaw alot..weird, anyone else have this? well hopefully it'll get better and better, can't wait til this is over with and i have a beautiful complexion!
I'm using philosophy purity face wash, the gentle cleanser
Aveeno calming facial mouisturizer with spf
