Day 10



Whoa....I am dry. I woke up this morning and my whole chin pretty much peeled off. I have these intense itches that are insane and last for minutes at a time. I was ready to itch my scalp and forehead off yesterday. I have been putting stuff on my lips non stop and am to the point I may have to do the same on my face. My make-up is not looking too pretty. Also, my nose feels like it is constantly on the verge of bleeding. Just really dry with the same acne on my face and a few new ones in places I have never got them before....back of arms and shoulder blades. So far, so good!!! Just a dryness I have not experienced before. I am still saying this is worth it!!!!rolleyes.gif


Hey! I am on Day 11, so we are pretty much at the same point in the treatment! What dose are you on? I haven't been that dry, just my hands a lot and my lips (but not terribly so).

DEFINITELY try Aquaphor--it's a life saver for lip dryness. For hair and scalp dryness, get Head and Shoulders Shampoo and Conditioner in one. Massage it into your scalp and hair, then rinse. If you use it for a few days, the dry, itchy feeling will go away! Then, apply a bit of conditioner to your scalp and rinse that out. If your ends are really dry, I LOVE Aussie 3 minute miracle hair conditioner. It's only $3 and it makes your hair soft!

For face dryness, I recommend CeraVe moisturizing cleanser and CeraVe moisturizing lotion. They are both GREAT, last forever, and have kept my face from getting dry!

Trust me, you won't regret trying these products! They are all inexpensive and extremely moisturizing!

Hi ladies. In day 5 so right behind you! Was on it A few yrs ago Started a blog of my own too:). I'm using cetaphil moisturizer, clinique city block SPF and olay foaming cleanser for sensitive skin. I like it better than cetaphil or cerave bc it removes makeup so much better But isn't drying. Aquafor for lips is a must. And a lubricaing eye drop too. Any hair oil trtmt works well also.

Your acne looks like mine. Although I don't see any in ur pics. Ha mine Isolde but personable and really bothers me. How old r u? I'm 32, two little kidos myself!!! Accutane is a miracle. Just hang in there

Oh and for the nose, out some aquafor on a q tip am and pm and spread all in ur nose. It's safe and does the trick. I also put some on the outer area of my nostrils As those will get super dry too

Hope2013...I am on 30mg. I got the Aquaphor and have been going to own on it. My lips are not cracking but just peeling pretty bad.

Gina1981....I am 32 as well. I am glad you can relate with the acne. I am sure people think I am crazy for being on it but it is noticeable in person and they stick around for a long time.

Thanks ladies for the input, I appreciate it and will try it all :)
