So I'm halfway into week 2, just took pill #10, and it's not too bad. My skin is moderately dry, some flakiness, my lips are quite dry and hurt (as was expected), and my joints don't feel bad. New pimples have surfaced near my hairline and above my upper lip which are clustered, but they tend to subside if they aren't agitated or have any makeup on them.
I know for girls that not putting makeup on is quite hard, but it actually helps a LOT. I still use mascara, eyebrow pencil, and a little bit of water-based coverup underneath my eyes, but that's it. Nothing on my cheeks, forehead, chin, or nose. I find that it makes my skin even dryer when I DO use it all over.
I have noticed that my acne scars have faded a lot since being on this medication. My cheeks aren't as red as they used to be, which is surprising considering it's only day 10. However, I still have this whole month as "battle phase" so we'll see how it pans out.
That's it that's all!
