Day 1-Baseline



Wednesday February 7, 2018. Just took my first isotrentinoin pill earlier this evening.  My derm told me to take it with dairy or fatty foods so i'm taking this opportunity to drink even more chocolate milk than normal.  At the moment my skin is pretty good.  Makes me feel kinda dumb for starting the most intense acne treatment on the market, but I know otherwise I would get another outbreak in a few weeks especially since I stopped doxycycline almost a week ago now.  My skin is regularly quite oily by the end of the day, especially when I wear make up.  I do notice that days I don't wash my face in the morning it doesnt get as oily.  I'm sure that won't be a problem for much longer and i'll be battling dryness.  Also my skin has a tendency to get pretty red especially after putting on moisturizer in the mornings.  I attribute that to the topical retinA i use at night and benzoyl peroxide wash i use in the mornings.  Of course I am stopping those products now.  Nervous/excited to see where this journey takes me!
