Extremely Dry Skin

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I'm starting on my 2nd week but it has been terrible. My skin is super dry to the point it is almost impossible to make any facial expressions. It's not red or flaky but it does itch. I use to be good about not touching my face but I feel like I touch more now due to the itch and dryness. Also I'm getting more breakouts than before and I am strictly following the instructions I just feel that because of how dry my skin is, I'm breaking out more! Help please I don't know if this is normal or if I should stop.

A bit of itchiness and dryness are typical.

Please read here: http://www.acne.org/faq.html#itch

And here: http://www.acne.org/faq.html#dry

The first few months may feel like a roller coaster ride with breakouts and clearing, and many people report a breakout around weeks 2 and 5. Try to hang in there and make sure you are following the directions strictly. Here's the typical "what to expect" chart.
