Day 9 on accutane



I am basically on Day 9 of my Accutane journey. I haven't really noticed any changes in my acne marks. They are still dark red. i haven't got any new pimple as such but i already had few tiny pimples on my face which have now gone red and overall the texture of my face has deteriorated. I noticed slight dryness on my face and lips. No major side effects although i do feel hungry a lot after i started taking Accutane. I have been drinking atleast 2 ltrs of water daily since i started Accutane and  i plan to increase the water intake to 4 ltr a day. 
Products used for 9 days- Cetaphil facewash,  emolene Moisturizer, mix faceclin and TopMetro gel and apply it twice in a day (Morning and evening)

A little Background on my skin - I have Asian wheatish dry and extra sensitive skin. I started getting acne in Oct 2017 and they have left severe red marks on my face. Most of my red acne marks are flat marks (not scars). My derm has prescribed a low dosage of Accutane and he says it helps with red marks. The side effects should be minimum. I am a vegan but i am very fond of junk food. Rigorous exercise , bad eating habits and stress contributed to my acne formation. I tried turning raw vegan on 6th jan 2018 and did do it for 20 days but i again starting eating junk food from last 5 days. I am planning to go back to the raw vegan diet from tomorrow.
