Day 1

Day 1 - 
I am starting of at a low dosage of 10mg/day as told by my dermatologist. I just took my first pill right after a heavy meal as I heard heavy meals help the pill to absorb better. My routine consists of gentle cleansing, toner, and moisturizer day and night. I will wear a cc cream with SPF 50 if I go out. 

Day 2 - 
I have not experienced any side effects, nor has there been any change in my acne. My friends tell me to try rubbing raw potato on my skin, as it can help clear acne faster. Does anyone know if this actually works, and if it is safe to do it while on accutane? 
My dermatologist also tells me that it is okay to put benzoyl peroxide on my skin to help clear the acne faster, is this actually advisable? Wouldn't it be too harsh on my skin while I am on accutane? I have a really sensitive skin combination skin btw. Oily everywhere except on the jawline where it is really dry. Like it's always really red after shower or if I accidentally touch or scratch my face.

NOTE: Most of my acne is located on my cheeks, eyebrows, jawline, and neck.

I am planning to take vitamin E and zinc supplements. Does anyone know if this is good to do while on accutane?

Thanks for reading! I will be posting pictures for each week after week 1 ends.
