Follow Up On Accutane



Day 20: my temporal acne has dried up, I have a new cyst on my next area that is painful. Dry lips still, 1st derm apt April 24th!


Hey! Good to hear you're on the accutane journey. Yay for clear skin (:

I've been on it for just over a month & I'm really happy with the results so far. I use a sunscreen and moisturizer specifically for dry skin together on my face & body & my skin isn't dry. It flakes a little in the morning but after a shower it's all gone (:

For dry lips I was using carmex which worked for the first two weeks but then I switched to a lip balm formulated for severely dry lips by "Dermal Therapy" if you can find it, GET IT! I highly recommend it, my lips have never felt better, even before accutane! It's an amazing product.

Hope you're doing well & don't let the side effects stress you out, it'll all be well worth it in the end.
