Day 55 Week 8: Festival Aftermath



A lot has happened since my last post. Derm visit, breakout, a music festival, huge pre Christmas party lunches and dinners. A lot of stress on my little body!

So my derm took one look at me last Tuesday and couldn't believe my progress on such a low dosage and only 7 weeks in. He said he would like to keep me at 20mg and see how it keeps progressing. I'm so happy about that because now I don't have to worry about getting any crazy side effects!

I did get a small breakout of about 5 pimples scattered on the front part of my cheeks (towards my nose) they're nothing too bad I'm guessing they're from the Christmas feasts! But they're slowly calming down now and I e had no new pimples for about 3-4 days.

I went to a music festival on Sunday and was freaking out about the fact that I'd be drinking alcohol and be out in the sun for hours. But what I did was take electrolyte sachets in and I just had those in water every couple hours and was honestly fine! Nothing bad to report I felt better than usual :) I applied SPF 30 sunscreen all over before leaving the apartment and I didn't get burnt AT ALL

That's about it, I still use cetaphyl cleanser every morning and night and now just moisturize with kora organics daily moisturizer at night. My lips only get chapped when I'm dehydrated I've noticed so if they're super dry just drink a ton of water. Trust me!!

Feel free to ask any questions if you have them!
