2 Weeks Of Accutane



So, nothing new to report. No side effects? No real dryness, just itchy arms a little, but I moisturizer like crazy. Lips r not dry yet but my mouth gets dry. But drinking lots of water helps! I'm curious that I'm not more dry. At least the lips? Not,complaining though I started own my normal dose routine of 20 in am and 20mg at pm, so we shall see how I react. I don't eat tons of fat and know its best to take ur pill w fat so I usually down a tsp of pb w my meal so in getting healthy fats w my accutane.

Still using aqua for for lips. Although I just got the Dior lip maximizer and its thick and amazing for ur lips. Using la mer cream and spf during the day. Using Olay gentle cleanser which I love and the neutrogena toner which is alcohol free and very gentle. More like a makeup wipe but cheaper. I totally recommend it! I live my la mer cream too. It's so thick and soothing but not quite greasy...expensive of course but that's my one splurge:). I also have been using the bliss sugar scrub for my lips and its amazing. Could b why my lips r not that dry, it works wonders for dry flaky lips without irritating them.

My scalp is itchy, but I use jojoba or coconut oil few times a week and let it sit overnight and it works!,, better than head and shoulders!!!!

So, feel free to comment, and let me know how you all r doing on ur accutane journey
