Day 19 (Pill 16)

My face is sooo DRY! Anyway, looks like I'm in the middle of my initial breakout. My face literally hurts and I haven't been able to find a moisturiser that lasts throughout the day in tems of keeping the dryness at bay. As ironic as it may sound I'm feeling very self conscious about my dry skin. I really think it makes my skin look much older than it actually is. I spent a good chunk of time picking at my face earlier on this evening (terrible I know). Well, I'm hoping by next week things would have cleared a little. I also have three huge cysts on my forehead which are taking forever to ripen, rupture and heal. I don't usually get zits on my forehead so this is new for me. When it comes to side effects, the only thing now is the dryness...only 5 1/2 more months to go!

    I would highly recommend the difference moisturizer lotion ( I think that what the name is lol) by clinique. I was in the same boat as u and believe me that was the onlylotion that really kept the moisture in , its like around 26 $'s but being so dry it is totally worth it !
