Your skin may get worse before better or may just improve. It depends on a lot of factors such as what medication you are using beforehand. I don't know where you live, but I am in the UK and during my first course found Carmex to be very good for my lips and used Simple moisturisers. My face never got overly dry though - not even as bad as on differin!

I about 2lbs more than you and my dose for my first course and now my second course is 40mg. You may well have your dose imcreased after the first month or so but it depends on how you react to the drug generally. Best of luck!
