Listen To Your Skin Not The Derms!



I all together broke it off with Cetaphil. As I mentioned on here before the lotion was doing me no good and the more I paid attention to the cleanser found I wasn't happy with it either, or my skin wasn't. My ex Derm told me to use Cetaphil everything and my current Derm didn't mention any certain brand to me (he doesn't speak much) so I trusted the "derm". My skin just hasn't been agreeing with Cetaphil lately at all. So I decided to listen to my skin, as we all should regardless of what a professional says.

Onto my skin...

One of my best friends got into my car the other day and her response was "WOAH!"

Me:" What???" Thinking damn I knew my makeup looked shitty today but she said it was because my face looked so much clearer. I then happily smiled at her.

23 days!

The cephalexin has been really rough on my stomach lately, probably because I'm sick right now.

Accutane has been extremely tough on my lips. It hurts to smile right now which I hate because I find everything funny and am always smiling.

My face is much much clearer, I do personal vids on my labtop for myself (since the begining when Doxy stopped working) and i've come such a long way. Ill post some pics as soon as the pigmentation goes away, cause with it you can't see a difference. I do have this 1 odd big size of Texas pimple below my eye ontop of the apple of my cheek. It's huge and nasty. That is something bugging me.

can anyone help me with something to buy for my chapped lips? Blistex just makes my lips burn.


What moisturizer do you use now? As far as chapped lips go, I like Neutrogena. A lot of people use Aquaphor and Burt's Bees lip balms. If your lips get really dry and crack, you can put some vaseline on them in addition to your lip balm before going to bed. That should make it a lot better the next day :)

I found that using Aquaphor (They sell it in travel size) has been the best for my lips. I also like Burt's Bees Grapefruit. I would try the Aquaphor and keep putting it on even if you don't "feel" you need it.
