So I finished my first month (and a couple days)! I went to the dermatologist on Thursday and I will getting my second prescription today.
This week has been a little crazy because I got sick with a cold or something (I've been sick for a week now and I don't see it ending soon). I don't always get sick, but when I do, I get SICK (insert Dos Equis meme). Basically, my nose and lips got really dry, though I think that's mostly because of being sick.
My skin has been getting dryer though. I seemed to notice it only a couple days ago. Mostly my arms, particularly my right arm on my hands and near my elbow.
My skin wasn't all that bad this past week until maybe three days ago. Now I have some spots on my cheeks and one on either side of my jaw sort of near by chin. Trying hard to stay positive. I keep telling myself it's only been a month and I still have four more to go and, from what I have read, people don't notice significant differences until around the beginning of the third month.
I forgot to mention on my last blog, I used pore strips on my nose, forehead, and chin a week and a half ago. I know people taking the medication don't really need to use other products, but I read some people trying it without anything going wrong and I wanted to try. They worked pretty dang well, but it did hurt my nose a little bit when I carefully peeled it off (though it usually does, so maybe it's nothing). Soooo I can't exactly recommend doing this, but it did get stuff. Just be extremely careful and don't force anything if you do.
Nothing else I can think of to report. If I forgot something, I'll add it to the comment section.
Hope everyone has a great weekend! I won't 'cause I'll be studying!
PS - I'm going to try to have cool entry pictures from now on. This week: Kingdom Hearts because it was and still is one of the best video games in the history of mankind. (I do not own the pictures except for the one on the left.)
