Accutane Journey Days 73 & 74



Much better couple of days, lips still extremely dry but having not been at work today I have found it easier to keep applying lip balm.
No more nose bleeds, I suspect that the lining of my nose was just extra sensitive due to the cold that keeps threatening to come.
Yesterday I cycled to work in a really heavy downpour and it struck me that I was thinking 'oh no , my hair will go frizzy', normally my only thought would be 'oh no my make up is going to wash off, where can I reapply before anyone sees me'.... I am SO HAPPY to be thinking about my crap hair instead! :) 


Worrying about your crap hair made me laugh out loud.  :)

I went out (and actually talked to 3 people) today without my makeup!!!!   They weren't strangers either.  I haven't done that since I was 12 years old.

I spent the day working in my flower garden and forgot that I didn't put on sunscreen.  My makeup usually contains sunscreen, so my face doesn't normally burn.  YOU WERE SO RIGHT ABOUT THE SUNBURN!!!  Oh my goodness!!!  I was outside working for 30 minutes.  My face is super red and the backs of my hands are so burnt that they are starting to blister.  OUCH!!!  I am going to try Aloe and hope it helps.

My eyes are burning and dry and I've started getting nose bleeds in the last 2 days.  I keep telling myself, "you're half way there"--but this is getting super difficult.  I have no idea how I'm going to make it through summer (we normally have very nice weather starting in May).  I love being outside and going to the beach.

Oh no :( I am just catching the sun REALLY quickly and easily, I've had a bit of peeling (although my skin is super dry anyway so not too much of a surprise) but I haven't blistered. I hope the aloe helps!
