Day 17



Soooo..  I think i mixed up the dates. Today, october 13th, is day 17 of my treatment. It doesnt really makes a difference, but i want to be as precise as i can.

- no new side efects. Just my lips a bit tight, but not dry. Dry blood inside my nose. 
- the 3 cysts i had, that "died" after my cortisone shot are only a little visible.  They are almost completely gone from my face. No new break outs / spots.

* tosay i started taking fish oil pills, as i read its great for the skin and it really helps the whole accutane process. And also helps with the cholesterol.

* i changed my SPF because i felt it was causing my skin get oily and i believe it also took part on the break  out i had. I was using Bioderma Photoderm 50 for sensitive skin.. and now changed back to my beloved La Roche Posay Anthelios. However i could not find the Anthelios AC (for aAcne prone skin) that was SPF 50, they only had 30. And i dont think thats enough while on treatment, so i bought the Anthelios XL ultra fluid tinted. So far so good. it did not make my face shine like Bioderma's.. i just hope it doesnt make me break out too :(:( 
while i arrived at the office i went straight to the bathroom and cleaned my face until it was red (although i think its getting red more easily than before) and then applied the new one.. and a little bit of makeup on top of it. 

Does anyone  recommend a GOOD sun screen that helps while on accutane? And doesbt cause break outs?
