Day 4-17



So I haven't posted as much the past couple weeks. I haven't seen too much of a change in my skin.
I currently have 4 large zits on my chin. All white heads. I didn't use to get as many large white heads. I've had a couple cysts pop up in random spots I usually don't get them. The places on my chin have been healing SO slowly! Minimal improvement in a week. I tried mario badescues zit drying lotion  a  couple night ago, it defintiely makes the lesion smaller but causes more dryness (hence the name, duh.) which makes it more difficult to hide with makeup. Using clinique moisturizer (the yellow one, will find the name) on extra dry areas and have even used aquaphor on the tip & bridge of my nose. Aquaphor every 5 mins on my lips.
Dryness..... yes, lots. My face is overall more dry and less oily
Mask: Amazonian clay, apple cider vinegar, water, lavender essential oil, tea tree oil, vitamin E oil with jojoba carrier oil. this combo is amaaaazing, its more smooth because of the oil and my face is so much more calm after using it.
I have an annoying scar on my cheek that I've been putting vitamin e on to possibly help heal it, but mainly to prevent it from getting worse. the vit E in jojoba carrier oil hasnt caused any breakouts like I've read it has others.

Here are my daily notes I've been trying to keep track of on my phone's notes app. Thursday 3/8
Less oily
Skin starting to get dry
Healing more slowly
Runny nose
No bloody noses but getting really bloody boogers....
PM mask

Friday 3/9
AM mask
Little flare up by my lip
Place in cheek still not healing uhg
Little hard not white heads not black heads on chin, won’t come out and if I pick at them they fester up.... what the heck are these?? I’ll get a close up pic

Saturday 3/10
Wasn’t feeling well all day so I forgot to take my Asorica. I was sick alllll day from drinking the night before. Threw up from 8am-5pm like it was my job. Lesson learned. Don’t drink more than a couple drinks while on accutane!!!

Sunday 3/11
Took my Asorica around 3pm and did a mask (Amazonian clay, acv, water, tea tree, vit E)
My chin has broken out again where it was beginning to stop. It looks kinda lumpy and I’ve never really noticed that about my skin, however it’s possible I’m just being more critical of it because I’m taking notes on it daily.
Side effects
My hands are SO dry and that’s never been an issue before
I’m getting all these small dry patches randomly on my body... not sure if it’s accutane related but I’m going to call the derm about it if it doesn’t clear up in a week or so
Joint pain... my knees always pop but now it’s to the point where they hurt if I don’t periodically pop them

Monday 3/12
It seems like when one area clears up nicely another flares up. But they’ve been going away quicker. The zits/white heads that is, go away quicker.

Tuesday 3/13
I think those weird hard black head like things I was getting are gone. Getting a lot of dryness on the tip of my nose.
