day 13

keloz

209 views

the first few days it was going pretty well but just recently my face has gotten so dry that it is so hard to even talk or move. im starting to break out too on the sides of my cheeks, hopefully it gets better, having acne is really hard and it just makes you isolate yourself which just worsens any type of depression you have. ill probably add pictures later on, when im more comfortable showing them because let me tell you, i really have it bad. but okay, thats it.

Hang in there, first month is usually full of ups and downs because your skin is still adjusting itself to the medicine, it should start getting better after the first month.

Hey there! It looks like we are both starting accutane at around the same time! I definitely know what you mean by it hurting to talk, when I don't apply aquaphor to my lips and I try to smile I can hardly do it because my lips are just that dry and it feels like they'll rip off if I smile any wider. Luckily I don't have the dry skin on my face yet but I am expecting that will come in the next few days.
You should totally upload pictures on here! its a great way to document the progress you have been making. If you're not comfortable showing your identity you can always black out your eyes or just take up close pictures like I did. I'm excited to see where I started and how my skin will look at the end of this treatment! Good luck!
