Week 1

Week one complete! Feels like so much longer, but that's probably because school has started.

I am taking 40mg of Claravis. I am on a one pill then two pills routine for the next five months. I use Cetaphil everything (lotion, cleanser, moisturizer, etc.) for my skin though I have not yet experienced much dryness. My lips are a little dry and also my nose, but that's it for now.

Haven't had any side effects as far as I can tell. I think I may be starting my initial breakout. I have a very large bump on my lower left cheek (it's a little hard to see in the picture). Other than a couple of bumps, my skin hasn't been that bad. I think this is because I was on vacation for two and a half weeks before I started the drug and wore makeup maybe 3 times total. I was also in the sun all the time. Of course, I knew it wouldn't last so I still went ahead with the drug like planned.

I'll try and give an update every week with pictures. Hope everyone else is having a positive experience!

I just started the regimen using the Cetaphil acne kit products too, and my skin looks similar to yours so I will be staying tuned to your progress! Goodluck :)

Lol the worst is when your skin starts peeling during school! It's so bad! And no one ever told me! Advice ahead of time don't wear makeup! It will start peeling off during the day and looking really gross! And carry a little mirror around! I'm so glad I finished before I went back to school! Good luck

I'm not looking forward to the peeling. :( I'm hoping the fact that I live in hot weather will lessen the effect. haha Just wishful thinking, I'm sure. Thank you for letting me know about not wearing makeup. I have been wearing makeup (most of the time) right now since it hasn't been dry (yet). I definitely don't want to freak people out with my scary face! haha I wish I would have started earlier in the summer. Dropped the ball on that one. Thanks for the advice!
