Have you tried Vaseline? Like, the actual petroleum jelly.

I put it on my face before I go to bed at night and again after I get out of the shower in the morning. I'll leave it on for 10-20 minutes and then wipe it off gently with a damp cloth. I also have it on my lips at all times. You can't tell that I have dry skin and you can barely tell that I have chapped lips.

It won't clog your pores.

I figured i'd update this

I'm on day...150.

My face is really clear, haven't had a pimple in about 3 weeks.

My back on the other hand is still breaking out, except everything heals incredibly fast and i have no where near as much as i did 5 months ago. It's sooo much better, i love it.

Some things i went through

Burning Lips

really dry eyes


Dry everything

My back broke out around the 3rd month and looked ridiculous...

I stopped for about 3 weeks because my dermatoligist kept having schedule problems, and we couldn't get the medicine in on time. I also left medicine at home during a vacation in july...

So yeah, i'm back on track now though taking 80mg as usual...

Does anyone just starting out have any questions? I have a lot of info if anyone is curious!

so my lips just starting today have gone ridiculously dry, it doesn't really hurt, it's just my upper lip and it's SO dry it kind of itches.
