Day 6



So I'm almost to that 1 week mark.

So far so good, skin is noticeably drier. I can feel my lips are dry, but I am still putting vaseline on which is amazing. My current spots that I had before starting are beginning to fade away, they become zits, and then the next day they are much smaller and less noticeable. I am delighted with these results so far.

I don't know if I'm just being paranoid but it seems like my hair is thinner and a lot drier, I have to wash it everyday now. Other than that, not much more to report :)

I was on Accutane for quite a while. One major tip I have is to start using Head & Shoulders shampoo & also conditioner (not the 2-in-1 bottle) now and get a very moisturizing deep conditioner. You can even get Jajoba oil to add a few drops into your conditioner and massage into your scalp.

My skin & eventually my scalp became INCREDIBLY dry and flakey when I was on Accutane for a couple of months. Definitely set yourself up for moisture now, before things get more dry later on!

I started out on 40mg/ day and then moved up to 60 mg/day eventually.
