I just started 20mg about 11 days ago and it's already dried me out. I didn't think I'd see the side effects until my dosage was upped but by day 7 my face started to become dry and I had a bit of a breakout. Breakout was on my forehead where I never breakout but it isn't too bad.

30mg is more than enough for mild acne. I will suggest you to lower your dose to 10mg after a month to reduce the chance of experience side effect.
