End Of Week 3!



I have my monthly check in at the derm next week! So far Accutane has been going a lot better than I thought it would. This week the dryness really kicked in- nose, corners of my mouth, cheeks- but I barely noticed until I yawned and my mouth felt like it cracked. Still, not a biggie. I have extremely thick hair that would get oily the day after showering, but now I can easily get away with washing it only twice a week! The only downside is dry scalp which = dandruff, but I found a good dandruff shampoo that smells like apples. Yum!

If any other teens are reading this, here's a simple list of things I've done so I barely notice Accutane side effects:

-overnight coconut oil mask once a week

-3 liters of water every day

-Carmex or Rosebud Salve for dry lips

-Cetaphil SPF moisturizer in the morning and Egyptian Magic at night

-lots of stretching before and after exercise to avoid joint pain

And that's it!
