Day 62/day 45

Posted by lb111923, 24 April 2013 · 527 views

having one of those days where i miss being on accutane and how awesome my skin was. i use duac on my back and chest, and recently ran out for a few days, so i broke out a little more. i'm remembering how easy it was to get out of bed or the shower, not have to apply medications all over, and still be confident that i didn't have acne. i used to struggle...

def still purging...still have clogged pores coming out. i had a big red clogged pore pop up near my mouth on friday, and a couple small ones. i'm getting my period and i've figured out that weeks 5/6 are the worst for me with retinoids so it makes sense. the big clogged pore had a white head on it that was really deep, so i popped it out and now it's hea...

not much new, except i did get a red spot near my mouth last night that had a whitehead on it this morning. it came off when i washed my face. the only other weird thing is that, after not having any issues with burning after applying tazorac in weeks, last night my face burned like CRAZY. i moisturized and by morning everything felt normal, but it was so...

i'm feeling pretty cautiously optimistic about tazorac. my forehead looks smoother, pores look smaller. i'm still getting some clogged pores, but they come and go fairly quickly. spiro keeps working on my hormonal acne--haven't gotten one of those inflamed whiteheads in a couple weeks. i am still getting random red clogged pores on my jaw/cheeks, but they...

finally dealing with less peeling...before i would moisturize and everything was fine, but when i washed my face i was still rubbing off a ton of skin...that's better now. also switched to olay sensitive skin foaming face wash and i like it. bottom half of my face is doing well, and my forehead still has some bumps but looks a little smoother i think. i g...

today is 4 weeks of using tazorac every day on my forehead...still very bumpy. it's so weird because yesterday i thought it looked awesome, and today it looks like the bumps are bigger. other than that nothing is really new, except for the fact that yesterday my face got super peely...not dry, just peely...like when i washed my face last night and this mo...

think i'm getting a little more into an initial breakout...a couple of the giant clogged pores on my forehead around my hairline have gone down, but more popped up. i have a few more clogged pores on my cheeks, and one of the whiteheads i had last week that went away has left a red mark...and i'm pretty sure another pimple is popping up in the exact same...

3 weeks of tazorac on my forehead...i think the clogged pores are purging, especially around my hairline, but the good news is that they seem to be going away within a few days, instead of popping up and sticking around. i'm getting a few more clogged pores/red spots on the bottom half of my face, but nothing i can't handle. i'm not trying any new product...

Day 19/day 2

decided i should stop using misleading labels for these entries...i'm definitely not almost 300 days into tazorac, although i guess i am almost 300 days into spiro, which i still like. i'm at 19 days of tazorac on my forehead, 2 days of tazorac on the rest of my face. i used tazorac on and off every 3 nights, then 2 nights, leading up to this. i had some...

Day 328

the dryness/burning is subsiding, esp when i apply just a little bit of moisturizer around my mouth before using tazorac. that's good because probably my least favorite thing about retinoids is feeling like you can't move your face. when i was in high school and using retinoids (incorrectly), every time i smiled the skin around my mouth would crack...eek....
