It's unbelievable the transformation my skin has made in the last week! No more oily/shiny face for me . I have never experienced dry skin on my face and I am absolutely loving it. I don't even care about the flakes.
It was so much fun to go to the MAC make-up counter and letting the woman put any kind of face make up on me that she desired! This is the first time ever in my life I have worn foundation. My husband even said how great my skin looked, which he is the only opinion I ever care about .
There are some draw backs to the dry skin however. My issues are only self-induced. I am what you would call Obsessive Compulsive (self-diagnosed, hah!). Everything in my house is cleaned to the gills and I sanitize and bleach everything. Therefore these harsh chemicals are doing a number on my hands. I have a rash on the back of my hands right now that looks like open sores. Probably doesn't help that I am a freak about washing my hands. I have always been like this because I have always been worried about touching my face with bacteria on my hands.
My arms are peeling some too due to the dryness. As for the pimples. I haven't had a white-head in a week...knocking on wood right now! I still have the blueish bruise-like marks underneath my skin. Curious if anyone else has ever had these, and if Accutane took care of them? I have so many on my chin that I don't even know how an Esthetician would extract these without making a lot of cuts to remove them. Any advice on these would be very much appreciated!!
I had my 1 month blood test yesterday and I will see the doctor on Tuesday to find out how my insides are doing. I'm crossing my fingers I can stay on the medicine! I will post in a few days to let you know if my journey will continue. Have a good week!!
