2 week update



today marks my second week taking accutane. so far, i haven't had an initial breakout (or any breakouts at all, actually... which is impressive, considering i'm on my period right now). i'm going to sound crazy, but my skin is looking pretty good already. it's even looking good in direct sunlight! i have a feeling i might miss the IB, considering the regiment i was on before i took accutane and that about 75% of people don't get it. 

my skin and lips are dry, but not that badly. i actually don't mind losing my former oiliness. as for my lips, i've been religious about using chapstick, so it's not really an issue. aside from dryness, i haven't had any side effects (yet). 
i'm so excited to see the end result. if this solves my acne woes forever, i'm gonna be so unbelievably happy.

I definitely hope you are one of those lucky people that don't get an IB. I'm just now healing from the biggest IB ever! At least I'm a guy so people don't really judge me for it... gender equality right

that sucks, but at least it's healing now! i hope your skin gets on a fast track to clear town now. 
ahhhh, the lack of gender equality in our society. something that sucks more than acne.
