Day 37--Finally Dry



Today marks Day 37, and I'm 23% done my treatment. I am officially DRY! I never thought I would be happy to say that! cheer.gif

I finished up my 10 day antibiotic course last week, and it definitely calmed down my IB. Hopefully it's all downhill from here on out.

My forehead has been just about completely completely clear for a few weeks, with the exception of one ugly little bugger that appeared, but we'll blame that one on PMS!

My cheeks, which have always been my biggest problem area by far, are healing. There are still the post-acne marks but the active pimples are small and to a minimum.

My chin and jawline are the only places that have been breaking out. This was NEVER a problem area for me before so I'm calling this the initial breakout. It was worse a couple weeks ago, so it's definitely improving.

I always write my blog posts during my lunch hour at work. I have a mirror in my office and I typically glance over at my face for a moment or two before I report my progress. Usually, when I glance over, I see a shiny, oily face that badlt needs blotting. But, today, NO SHINE!!! No oil. When I look up close my cheeks are actually very dry and a teensy bit flaky. I love it. Ha!

I'm still using the same regimen. However, I've begun only taking my Accutane at night. So just 20mg, once a day. That's it. I've been using the Acne.org AHA+ less frequently--maybe 2-3 times per week, compared to once a day a couple weeks ago. My face is simply too dry for it. I've instead been using my Clinique Moisturizing Gel mixed with the Acne.org Jojoba Oil, which is great by the way. Thanks Daniel Kern! tinydan.gif

If you're not using Jojoba oil, you're seriously missing out.

Until next week!

I had the same type of IB all around my neck for my 1st course. I'm starting up my 2nd one now. Hope it works this time!
