24 year old female, mild/moderate hormonal cystic acne, 80mg/day

WEEK 1:
oily skin, lips fine, initial breakout small painful cysts in places I don't usually get pimples (cheek under eye, forehead) as well as places I do (cheeks beside nose, chin). Losing gobs of hair.

WEEK 2
Oily skin starting to dry up. Lips mildly chapped. Initial breakout gone. No pimples, skin looking great.Still losing gobs of hair and starting to worry.

WEEK 3:
Skin dry. A couple cysts, lots of small pimples on chin. Cysts coming to a head faster and red marks peeling off. Generally pimples seem to heal faster. Stopped losing hair

WEEK 4:
Skin very dry and peeling. Lips peeling and very chapped, not painful, just rough feeling. Recovering from lots of small pimples on chin and still getting a couple now and then. Cysts gone. Still not losing hair.

WEEK 5:
Skin still recovering, looking ok. Indented scar from last big cyst of week 3 evident, but will heal with time. Lips continue to be very very dry and skin still peeling, but not so bad if I keep moisturizer on it. Hair dry, not having to wash it but once a week with intense conditioning, but still not losing any to excess.

THis is where I am currently, hope it helps. My skin is still not completely clear.

Also- just changed birth control pills (Alesse gave me the acne in the first place, just switched to Yasmin).
