Sorry guys, I've been pretty busy.
So the dermatologist tells me I have that "baby soft Accutane skin," and I've gotta agree. My skin is no longer oily and though my lips are dry, they've been getting better with the warmer weather. My skin's still peeling, though, and goes through spurts of being worse than others, but usually I just moisturize heavily and avoid washing it more than -- at most -- twice a day. My hair, as I've mentioned before, can go a week without being washed but I try to keep it to about three/four days.
However, along with this warm weather comes sitting out in the sun, and even from about an hour of sitting out on a pretty normal day (~75 degrees), I come back inside and my chest is pink from the sun. I need to start wearing sunscreen there, ugh.
Speaking of sunscreen ! I'm going to Jamaica at the end of May. My treatment ends the mid-June, so I'll still be on Accutane when I go. Which means I have to wear SPF 120481556, I understand. But I was planning on getting a bikini wax before I go, until I remembered the no-waxing/exfoliating rule. Opinions if I should go through with it ? My skin is delicate, I understand, but have only been really having issues on my face and arms. I shave my legs/bikini area, so how much different can that really be ? Maybe I'll exfoliate instead of shaving to see if I get any bad reactions.
It's still up for debate. We'll see.
