I think I'm around week 8 now, and it's going well.
that's why I haven't been around here much lately either.
It took a few weeks to get the correct dosage, so at first I had some pretty bad side effects.
But I've had exactly 4 zits in 2 months! That's it! Also my skin is much smoother, not dripping with oil, and more even toned.
The best part is: foods that used to make me break out(like ice-cream!) I can eat again, no worries.
My daily skin treatment goes something like this:
Wash face with water.
Apply sunscreen (This used to make me break out).
Apply lipgloss/chapstick, which I keep in my pocket to re-apply as needed(every hour or so).
Occasionally I'll put lotion on around noon. Something that I could never do before.
Lotions and anything in my hair used to cause breakouts.
Now when applying hairspray and stuff I don't have to worry about avoiding my face.
The dryness isn't bad in the least. Mostly just around my mouth, and the chapstick takes care of it. It's a little flakey, but doesn't bother me. I also told my co-workers about it so I don't have to worry about someone asking.
