Week One Complete!



So today I took my 8th 20mg roaccutane tablet.

And after 8 days, I have noticed...nothing.

No dryness, no aches or pains, no anything. (However I have had slightly dry lips but I'm attributing it to hay fever as it has been SO bad and my body is fully stocked up on antihistamine, yet I still can't breathe properly and want to pull my eyeballs out of my head - can anyone else relate? hahah)

The first 3-4 days my skin cleared slightly, which I believe was just mere coincidence. However, days 4-8 I have had a breakout, but in all honesty I think it was just normal and would have happened even if I wasn't on roaccutane. So at this moment I'm not treating it as a purge.

So yeah, no purging or dryness. Did anyone else starting out on 20mg not notice anything over the first week? Of course I don't want to jinx myself, I'm fully aware I might wake up tomorrow or in 2 weeks time and it may all hit me, but I am slightly concerned that I haven't noticed anything. I've been following multiple instagram accounts and a lot of people seem to have started experiencing dryness around day 6, from what I've seen.

As I said in my last update, I am moisturising as well as I can because I do fear the dryness. I've been using Clinique moisture surge serum and moisturiser, and I'm really liking them so far. My face feels soo smooth where I don't have acne present (but that's not a very large area hahahah).

So yep, not much to report as of yet, just trying to remain as patient as I can. Hopefully next week will be a little more eventful :)
