Hi all!!! So, day 12 and doing just fine regarding side effects. Since I was on such a. Low dose to begin with (10mg) I really haven't had any side effects. Not even dry lips yet! I know it's comi g though:). As of yesterday taking 20mg for another week and then will bump up to 40mg. Just trying to allow my body to slowly get adjusted to this drug.
Switched to olay gentle cleanser and am liking it so far. I prefer it to cetaphil or cerave bc its not as thick. But still soap free and fragrance free. I started using creme de la mer!!! And am loving so far. Only the second day in but it is very soothing and moisturizing without being greasy. It's so expensive so not sure yet, I bought the small sample size to start with!!! Spf, i use skinmedica daily or clinique city block. Other than that, no dryness at all. Slight headache first few days but gone as of now. My eyes r getting drier but already had that, and my scalp may be getting itchy or it could just be me thinkin it is. Ha. Anyways, I haven't had any new breakouts recently knock on wood!!!!! But my time of month will b the true test!
I am getting some slight redness already. Like when I apply my moisturizer I look a little pink/flushed. Which I know can happen.
Also using cetaphil lotion for my face if I seem more dry. I love it. Although t can be a little shiny/greasy feeling. But hasn't made me breakout!!!
I'm debating using a serum in my regime by caudalie called vinoperfect. I know the whole spiel about no products and all but I am a pigmenter, and if I use nothing i get brown and blotchy (thnx to hormones). It's super gentle and all natural. And I've read many accutaners have used it without a problem... So we shall see. If it irritates me I won't use it, simple as that:)
Would love to hear from you all on ur journey as well!!!!
