Day 9- have woken up with cracked lips at the corner today, so it's clearly getting into my system which is good. 

Skin is so so, spots that came up seem to be going down. Seems like I get little whiteheads around the mouth area that come up and go down quite quickly. 

I think the reason I may be seeing slower results this round (last time was super quick) is because my idea of 'so so' or 'broken out' now, is a lot better than what it was before. Before my acne was much more severe, and as I'm so used to having such clear skin now my idea of bad now is very different to before. 

Will keep updating. Being sure to take each tablet with a good meal for maximum absorbtion.

Day 13- Skin is flawless. 

Day 15 + 16- One large spot on side of face (annoying!!!)- and skin seems to be EXCEPTIONALLY oily. Like an oil slick- it looks awful. I'm not sure the Cerave skincare is working for me, I think it may be far too heavy for my skin. Going to stop using as of today. Have a large pacakge of Paulas Choice skincare coming my way.

Day 18- How fast has that gone?! Skin is good, not as oily any more as started using oily skincare again. One larger spot on side of face which is drying up- other than that doing well. Much happier today.

Day 20- Had two spots come up on the nose/cheek area. Also have a rather sore spot on my chin/jaw area. 

Skin is still up and down, but a lot better than it was before the roacc started. Looking back at my log from last year it seemed it was up and down with the odd breakout here or there for the first 28days ish.

Lips are now very dry, so clearly in my system very much so. However nothing my eight hour cream can't solve.

Day 24- Few little spots come up around chin/lip area, but seem to be drying out. Doesn't look great, but not the worst it's been. Still much clearer than when started, hoping it'll start to settle soon and stop being up and down.

Day 25- Couple of small spots next to lip, one on chin area. Slight blip, nothing major. I am full of cold so this could be linked?

Day 26- Few little spots come up around chin/lip area, but seem to be drying out. Doesn't look great, but not the worst it's been. Still much clearer than when started, hoping it'll start to settle soon and stop being up and down.

Day 28- Three spots on the side of my face all come up close together, annoying! They're reasonably small.

Day 29- Three spots going down and drying up, other than that clear :)

Day 30- Skins a bit spotty on one side. Seems to be a few little spots all on one side round mouth/chin/cheek area. Very annoying! Seemed to still be up and down at this time last time as well, looking back on this diary. 

Day 36 I was clear and continued to be for the forseeable, so fingers crossed for the next few days!

Day 32- Meh, skins still the same. Not great. Feeling a bit rubbish about it today. Fingers crossed it'll clear quickly :( Can't wait for it to clear! 

Using Effaclar Duo as moisturiser (la roche posay).

Hands hand developed a scaly red rash, think its as my hands are dry fom roacc and winter weather too? 8 hour creamed up!

Day 33- bloody hell- skin looks crap! :( Feeling rubbish today.

Three spots on one side kinda merged to make one big spot, other side has little spots around mouth /jawline. Looks rubbish, sore, red, oily. 

Hand rash is still very there.

Day 36- Come on roaccutane! :(

The three spots on one side are STILL there, don't really even seem to be going down. Been like 5 days! Just looks like a mountian to me!

Another large spot came up on the same side on jawline and high up cheek- strange, but they're quite easy to cover. Just want this huge cyst type thing to go down. It is SO visable and sore.

Other side is pretty clear. 

I am due on shortly. I noticed i'd been taking my pill back to back for a while for 3 months at a time without a break as advised by my doctor due to bad time of the months, however i'm now a little concerned that these breakouts may be hormone induced!!! So having a week break currenlty then will go back to 21 days on, 7 days off.
