last night i opened my second package, woo!
let's discuss side effects thus far:
-what-feels-like-windburned lips (aka not REALLY chapped, but irritated/red)
-horribly dry flaky scalp (like when your skin peels after a sunburn)
-sore body sometimes
really, thats about it.
i got this aveeno overnight lotion that has helped SO much. its for your body, so its been keeping my arms and legs super moisturized, i absolutely love it. its also making my hair on my legs grow in slower, which has been great this week that its been nearing the 90s.
my biggest issue is definitely the scalp thing. i've tried to not wash it, but it doesnt help. i'm going tomorrow to buy some tea tree oil to put in my shampoo. i got a new redken shampoo. hopefully this all helps.
a few mornings i've woken up feeling a little achy in my joints. but nothing that doesn't go away through out the day. which could just mean its my mattress, which i wouldn't doubt, since its been bothering me since the start of summer. and i've been SO forgetful about taking the fish oil. i suck.
my skin has definitely improved. everything heals really quickly. i've gotten a few white heads, but the kind that are really small, and you pop them and thats it. they're done. i don't normally get those. i've only gotten one new cyst. and of course, i popped it. its scabbed over and its healing so fast. i can feel another one under the skin on my right cheekbone. we'll see if it comes out or not.
my back feels a lot smoother, and is clearing also. i don't know how the pores are back there, but the pores on my chest, arms and forehead are huge and gross. my nose and under my eyes are pretty smooth. there are still clogged pores there, but they're less noticeable. the sides of my nose are another story. the blackheads are raised and disgusting. but this is good, its gonna clear soon.
today, when i got out of the shower, i rubbed my face really hard to try and get some of the dead skin off, especially on my forehead where it felt scaly. well...i rubbed a little too hard and a chunk over a pimple came off and bled :[ haha, oops!
my next derm appointment is oct. 13. i think i'll only be like 25 days in by then or something. so i'm not sure if i should have her write the prescription for the date that i finish, and then get it filled? or just not take it to be filled until i'm done? or just take it when i get it, and not start it until i finished my box? i guess i'll ask at my appointment.
