over a month Post-accutane

Hello to anyone who reads this blog!

Just wanted to let anyone know (who is curious about accutane and what happens afterwards) that my skin is still clear, and I finished my last dose a little over a month ago. I have continued to use cetaphil moisturizing cream tub for sensitive, dry skin, and a gentle face wash by cetaphil or cerave, too. I have gotten one pimple every now and then but just a drop of epiduo does the trick! (epiduo is also prescribed by dermatologist).
I wasn't sure if my skin was going to go back to being super oily so I wasn't sure if I should switch back to oily-skin products, but continuing with the gentle, sensitive dry-skin stuff has been just fine. I did stop liquid makeup tho, and went back to my powder, just cause it goes on not as thick. The dry lips and dry skin went away about 2-3 weeks after my last dose, I can kiss now!! lol. I can lick my lips, and they're not ridiculously dry! Granted, my skin is still a little drier than it was previously, in that I'm not nearly as oily as I used to be. I went swimming for the first time in a LONG time, because I used to have to wear makeup all the time, and it felt so freeing. Like a curse was lifted.

Like all satisfied accutane users, my only biggest regret is not taking it sooner. My life has seriously changed, I have the most confidence than I have ever had in about a decade. And I hope the results continue for the rest of my life, haha. No other long-lasting side effects, that I can tell (joint pain went away, never had noticeable hair loss, not as irritable/tired, etc).

If you have any questions let me know!
