Day 3



So, it’s been three days since I've started on my Accutane journey and so far so good. I've noticed some drying on my chin from active acne breakouts. I don't know if it’s the medication or if the dryness is from the acne healing. Paired with the drying acne breakouts, there is a definite case of dry mouth. I’m pretty good with my water intake 80+ ounces of water a day, but the dryness is never really quenched.

I’m still able to wear my contacts, the dryness hasn't affected my eyes yet but time will tell I guess. My derm really recommended that I switch to my glasses, but I hate the way to look with them on sad.png I hope I can wear my glasses for the whole time I’m no Accutane, but we shall see. Did anyone else had to switch from contacts to glasses?

Any advice what can be given to help alleviate dryness will be welcomed smile.png

I heard a lot of people use Cetaphil or CeraVe moisturizing cream (in a tub). It's really hydrating. Also, people use Jajoba oil and put it on their face at night after washing it. The oil is natural and good for your skin. It actually counteracts the oil your skin produces and moisturizes your skin without clogging your pores.
