Post community accutane journals

Yet another accutane journal..... I'm going to document my progress for all past, present and future accutane users. If you are on accutane now, feel free to document your progress along with mine.....

Day 18 and I'm feeling some effects from the tane. I have mild headaches but nothing too dramatic. My lips are dryer than the Sahara so dry I apply "karrit lips" every 30 minutes to give them some relief.

-karrit lips is an awesome lip balm- you can get in the health food store for about 6 bucks

I have several pimples and 3 cysts on my face that make up the constelation "The big dipper" It's kind of amusing; although, I'd rather look to the sky to see the big dipper than in the mirror

-I just bought some jojoba oil so I will start using that tonight. I hope I don't have any lumps in the AM.

In general, my skin is much better than it was- woo hoo! (annie swings arms around head and dances)
