Well, I am officially one week in on my journey to clear skin! 7 pills down, 173 more to go!
I have definitely experienced my initial breakout... But I just have to remind myself that this should be the last bad breakout that I ever have. Optimism is key. The left side of my neck is a war zone it seems Definitely won't be wearing my hair in a pony tail until this clears up. Weird thing is that the right side of my neck is completely clear. Is there a reason this is happening?
As far as dryness goes, I haven't experienced any terribly dry skin. I have been moisturizing like crazy though. I use the Vaseline intensive care lotion all over my body and have been using the Cerave AM lotion during the day on my face and some sort of creamy Olay face cream at night. I really like the Olay night cream but I don't like the Cerave AM much because it smells and feels like I am putting thick sunscreen all over my face and it makes my makeup feel caked on. I might just have to use the PM kind instead since I'm not really in the sun anymore since its getting pretty cold out. Also, I have been using Lypsyl religiously and I am obsessed with it! My lips are actually more moisturized now than they were before I was on Accutane!!
Anyways, everything seems to be going decently well. Just hoping this initial breakout will clear up soon!
I have to work early in the morning so I will add my week 2 pictures later.
