A few pimples came to the surface, but this seems pretty normal since I pretty much always have pimples coming and going 24/7. I'm just hoping this is my skin purging the bad stuff and then it'll start to clear up! I'm still not that dry - I MAY be producing a little less oil? I just don't feel the need to blot my face with a tissue in the bathroom nearly as often and I feel like I don't look as shiny as I used to. I think my lips might be a little dry? Still not a huge difference, I'm just trying to be proactive by always keeping them moisturized to prevent any potential peeling.
By the way, I'm using
Neutrogena (or generic brand) oil free moisturizer with spf morning and night
I have cetaphil moisturizing cream for if I ever get super dry in the future
I use regular cheap chapstick during the day and vaseline at night for lips
I have aquaphor if I need it in the future for my lips
I wash with sensitive skin cetaphil morning and night
I like to go out on the weekends but I'm really turning down since the whole thing about alcohol and accutane being processed in your liver is bad for you. Plan on keeping that to a minimum for the next 6 months. Anybody drink while on accutane? Have any side effects or horror stories?
