  1. So I guess I'm sort of four months late in posting, I see. I"m sure the thousands of followers are disappointed, but life got in the way. But I took a picture of one of those F-ing little "no pregnant girl" tabs that litter my house in the strangest places (how did one get in my refrigerator?). Something tells me I'll be finding these all over for some time. So here's the deal: I think it worked. But I have a feeling my acne will probably come back. Just a hunch, but because every once in
  2. I'm just past my one month mark (hit last week). I went to the derm and they added another 20mg, bumping me up to 60mg/day.

Woke up this morning with some peeling on my lips and very dry mouth and eyes. Drank a ton of water today so far, put on Blistex medicated and it's mostly fine. I plan on using: Cetaphil cleanser for face Trader Joe's lemon verbena soap for rest of body CerAv face moisturizer if I need it Blistex medicated or Aquaphor (whichever works better) I started my course wit
