    Products used:

    [*]cetaphil moisturizing cream

    [*]cerave moisturizer

    [*]epiduo (use as spot treatment, apply generously and often- works pretty well)

    Overall thoughts:

    Lately my skin has felt pretty sensitive. After I wash my face or apply moisturizer, the areas where I have breakouts become VERY red..nearly bright red. Also now my acne is more difficult to cover up with makeup. I can still see the acne through the makeup vs. before accutane it wasn’t AS difficult to conceal. And the weirdest thing… I woke up this morning with a small cut on my bottom lip and it looks like a piece of skin there came off too. and in the same spot on my upper lip, I felt sharp stinging pain for a little while. it wasn’t the same type of pain as a cold sore because I’ve had those before. very strange! and does this happen to anyone else: when you have a pimple on your chin- it pops, turns into a scab, scab falls off, new scab forms, scab falls off, and over and over in a cycle? pretty annoying! but overall i'm trying to stay positive...just have to be patient!
